Changes In My Life

Happy Monday!! Hope you all are having a fabulous day with great weather in your life. It’s currently 86ยฐ here, so in other words…HOT. I’m not complaining, the sun puts me in a good mood ๐Ÿ™‚

Something I kept seeing in the blogsphere that has always called my attention has been Fitnessista’s Breakfast Cookie.
A cookie for breakfast? No way this is a fail. The only reason I hadn’t made this before is because I eat with my mind and I thought there was no way this was going to be filling. I was wrong!

Made with all the fixings! I smashed in half of a nanner, left it overnight and woke up to this ginormous cookie!

Good to the last bite and very satisfying! Will be making this more often for sure ๐Ÿ™‚

Today is a workout day so I was excited to get my butt in the gym! The best part was that I had a whole new workout to follow ๐Ÿ˜€

My very generous bf designed me a workout plan that followed the 3 main bodybuilding lifts: Bench Press, Deadlift, and Squat Leg Press. I gotta keep my form in check before starting to squat again.


  • Deadlift- 5 sets leading to one max. I hit 155lb today
  • Assisted Pull ups (until I can do actual ones )
  • Dumbbell Rows- 2×10. I did 25lb
  • Side Planks
  • Front Planks
  • Glut Bridges

I am tiredddd ๐Ÿ™‚ But in a good way. I love feeling strong. Skinny is for wimps ๐Ÿ˜‰

My PWO was a baked bean burrito! ๐Ÿ˜€ Yummm

Filled this baby with black beans and cheddar cheese, baked in the oven for 25 minutes and it was ready to be devoured ๐Ÿ™‚

Can’t have lunch without a little dessert so I thought I’d treat myself to a little Casein Pudding ๐Ÿ˜€

Just like ice cream! ๐Ÿ˜€ And yess I am obsessed with Reddi-wip. Is there a Reddi-wip anonymous? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


Thank you all for the great responses regarding my friend from my last post. I know it’s a very sensitive issue, so I’ll address it as best as I can but in the end it’s not up to me. You all are fantastic ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Best thing you ate today? Breakfast Cookie for sure!!

    mm I’m loving the look of that shake!

    and the nutty breakfast cookie! I loved by breakfast and lunch -my simple sprouted grain cinnamon raisin french toast with Pb Banana and syrup and then for lunch some leftover homemade BBQ cheddar veggie pizza.

    I don’t understand when people aren’t foodies! ๐Ÿ˜›

  • 21. Katherine: Unemployed  |  04/11/2011 at 5:49 pm

  • 23. Shanna, like Banana  |  04/11/2011 at 6:18 pm

  • 28. Mandi  |  04/11/2011 at 7:19 pm

    I love those breakfast cookies! I haven’t had one in so long though. Best thing I’ve eaten so far today is pancakes. Although I wish it was that pudding. That seriously looks amazing!

    • 29. Jenny  |  04/12/2011 at 3:28 pm

      O0o0 I want pancakes ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 30. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin  |  04/11/2011 at 7:25 pm

    I haven’t made a bfast cookie yet for the same reason – it just doesn’t look filling enough! But I guess I’ll have to trust you on this one and try it. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • 31. Jenny  |  04/12/2011 at 3:29 pm

      Omg yes it’s really filling! And I’m a huge fatty lol

  • 32. Kaila @healthyhelperblog!  |  04/11/2011 at 8:20 pm

    “skinny is for wimps” <- love that! I can't tell you how many time my friends have pointed out stick thin girls saying they wished they looked like that! And I am just like "I would rather be strong and muscular than just be thin". Don't get me wrong…there are definitely strong skinny people….but you shouldn't strive to just be skinny, you want to be fit too!

    Oh and the b-fast cookie looks delish!

  • 33. Kristina  |  04/11/2011 at 9:04 pm

    you have a legit sundae dish-so jealous, I love it!!!!!

  • 34. Sarah  |  04/11/2011 at 9:09 pm

    That “pudding” looks so good ๐Ÿ™‚

    Best thing I ate today was definitly April’s pumpkin spice pancakes with almond butter!! yum

    Breakfast cookie for sure!

  • 35. Autumn @ Good Eats Girl  |  04/11/2011 at 10:26 pm

    Your burrito looks delish! I want to have those for dinner soon! And starting the day with a breakfast cookie sounds amazing!

  • 36. Allison  |  04/11/2011 at 10:26 pm

    Pudding looks great and I too need to attend some sort of whipped cream counseling!! I love it!!!

  • 37. moveovercelery  |  04/11/2011 at 10:31 pm

    YES! I’m so glad you made Gina’s cookie! I’ve been wanting to for awhile now but seeing your post has made it clear. I’ll do that this week. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Love that your smoothie cup is overflowing!

    • 38. Jenny  |  04/12/2011 at 3:34 pm

      Yay do it! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 39. carlee  |  04/11/2011 at 10:35 pm

    Udis GF pizza crust! It was D–liscious! I also had a pina colado smoothie that was ever so refreshing and tasty!!

    Your “milkshake” pudding looks SO incredibly good! I love the garnishing and the way you let it spill for the pic!

    • 40. Jenny  |  04/12/2011 at 3:35 pm

      Omg pina colada smoothie sound amazing!!

  • 41. Tara  |  04/11/2011 at 10:40 pm

    Try topping the breakfast cookie with banana softserve. It’s soooo good that way!
    You make that casein pudding look soooo decadent! I want it! I definitely need to join reddi-whip anonymous too, I love that stuff!

  • 46. allieatfood  |  04/11/2011 at 11:39 pm

    I have made a similar recipe before where you put the oats and ingredients in a pan and kind of grill them. Always a tasty breakfast ๐Ÿ™‚ Did you ever see the pancakes in a whipped cream can!? They are organic!

    • 47. Jenny  |  04/12/2011 at 3:37 pm

      Omg yes Batter Blaster. I actually bought it one time. Didn’t really like it lol

  • 48. Justeen @ Blissful Baking  |  04/12/2011 at 12:38 am

    • 50. Jenny  |  04/12/2011 at 3:37 pm

      Yes trust me! It’s amazing ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 51. Lara @ six times the yum  |  04/12/2011 at 8:40 am

    That casein pudding looks out of this world! I love how it looks (and probably tastes) like a ice cream shake from a creamery, but it’s actually very healthy and good for you! Nice! When I get access to my mom’s kitchen and Vitamix, I will try my hand at the pudding!

    PS. I love the plate your breakfast cookie is on!

    • 52. Jenny  |  04/12/2011 at 3:38 pm

      Haha thank you. I almost didn’t buy it bc my bf said it was ugly! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  • 53. This Italian Family  |  04/12/2011 at 9:16 am

  • 56. Fit Chick Britt  |  04/12/2011 at 10:17 am

    Yummmooo on the pudding and breakfast cookie. Cute plate too! Best thing I ate yesterday? I tried blueberry chobani for the first time, is that lame?

    • 57. Jenny  |  04/12/2011 at 3:39 pm

      I still haven’t tried it! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 58. freshandfoodie  |  04/12/2011 at 10:29 am

    Breakfast cookie?! I love it! I like that it sets up over night — that’d be a nice option for me. I’d like to try this.

    My friend totally has a Redii-wip obsession, too. Any time we go to her lake house in Michigan, she always has several cans in tow!

  • 59. BrittFit  |  04/12/2011 at 10:57 am

    • 67. Jenny  |  04/12/2011 at 5:25 pm

      Oats are never boring!

  • 68. katiivey  |  04/12/2011 at 4:40 pm

    Oh I have been wanting to make a breakfast cookie for so long! Yours looks so delish. I just might try it this week, since you said its filling. I was worry it wouldn’t fill me up!

    • 73. Jenny  |  04/12/2011 at 5:25 pm
