Two Ingredient Cookies

Two ingredient anything seems to be all the rage lately. If you’ve been a reader of my blog from the start you know I have been a huge advocate for the Two Ingredient Pancake
I have heard and seen pictures of peoples two ingredient cookies consisting of oats and banana. Craving chocolate chip cookies I decided to experiment with this.

Ingredients
2 Bananas
1 cup oats (I used large flake)
Optional mix in’s (chocolate chips, nuts etc)

method
Set your oven to 350degrees

Grease your cookie tray. Since we are trying to be all healthy and stuff keep your hands off the butter and use coconut oil.

Get those arms working and mush the banana in its peel to soften.
Use a fork to make it into a soft mushy mess, conveniently contained in your mixing bowl of course.

Add your oats and mix until all of your oats are moist. Then add the mix in of your choice.

If your a delicate little flower you can use a spoon to scoop your batter into a cookie tray or if your not lame you can just use those 10 flanges you were born with.

Bake in the oven for about 15 min. If they fall apart on you give it a little more time.

Voila! Cookies!!!
Bon Appetit!

editors note next time I’ll throw the oats in the food processor or blender for a little wiz. I found my oats to be a little to big

Off to a rough start

Yesterday was the official start day of my training and eating healthier.
It started off well with a nice sleep in with the beau and successful morning shakes.
Puttering around catching up on laundry and all the fun stuff in life left me drained. I had a headache and felt off. The only culprit I can blames caffeine, I always have one cup of coffee a day so not having on yesterday morning was killer. By 5pm I had to try a run, we downloaded this app which sets you up on a route around your area and we were set to do 5km. We started to run and by 0.5km My head was pounding! I pushed to try and finish but at 3km I couldn’t take it anymore so we headed back home.
I would strongly suggest to anyone who is looking at changing their diet AND training plan is to start the meal plan a week before. Training when your body is in detox is hell!
Today is a rest day but I’m back and at it tomorrow.
here’s hoping for a more successful Run.

I’m Back!

A post from me!
But it’s been Over 6 months!

Yes… I know I know I have been MIA for the later half of 2013.
I experienced a bit If a rut in dealing with my ulcer and a few other issues. Blogging went from the back burner to completely off the stove for quite a while.
I miss being tied to this blog as it keeps me on track with all my health care and fitness goals.
Being honest, I’m not completely out of this rut but I need to make some changes if I want to get back to where I was. I miss being happy, feeling good and having energy.
I WILL turn this around.

I am all about making easy lifestyle changes and making things fit into everyday schedules but this year I have made a drastic decision to get my ass in gear.
If all goes well on feb 3 I will sign up to do the Seawheeze at the end of August. The Seawheeze is the lululemon half marathon. It was part of my goals last year but it was sold out by the time I went to register. I refuse that fate this year. I have mentally committed to this race and I will register for this event if it’s the last thing I do.

I will be blogging 1-2x a week to share my trials and tribulations as well as updating my social media pages daily so make sure to check them out.
