Coffee, Cookies, and the Crazies

I woke up moody with a neck ache from those shoulder shrugs yesterday… and also because my house is a mess! Its driving me crazy! I need coffee to get stuff in order. Just want to curl up in a ball and be rolled under the couch with all the other socks and junk I now see under there. Stuff. Just. Everywhere.

Got moving and ready to run away workout. The usual roundup for breakfast. Oats for me are essential for heavy lifting days. I will be shaking halfway through my workout if I don’t have this carb in my belly to sustain me.

I like my oatmeal thick, not just kinda fine..

Coffee in hand, we headed to the gym. Worked legs heavy! Weighted squats, deadlifts, and walking lunges. For machines: calf raises, lying leg curls, leg extensions, sitting leg curls, hip adduction, hip abduction, and leg press with a calf raise superset. Takes just over an hour to do it all. 4 sets of everything. I get busy in the gym. I need one of those massive headphones so people know I’m not kidding, I’m here to put in work!!!

Finished up with a 1 mile hike walk on a 15% incline.. Sweat session complete!

Fiber is a regular in the house. I make sure my kids get a good amount everyday. For tonight’s bakery delight, I made Farmland Flax Cookies. They are delish! Kids love them! Recipe detail below:
Farmland Flax Cookies
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour (I use soy)
3/4 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup ground flaxseed meal
1 tsp baking soda
•Preheat oven to 350
•Blend together first 3 ingredients until light. Add egg and vanilla.
•In separate bowl, mix flour, flax, oats, and baking soda: stir into butter mixture until dough forms.
•Drop by teaspoonfuls balls (about 16) onto ungreased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Gently flatten.
•Bake for 15 minutes on middle rack. Cool 10 minutes.

Pair with milk, coffee or Bailey’s and Swerve Serve 🙂

Surprisingly, they’re only about 69 calories each. Now, that’s not a license to go crazy!
We’ve got fit goals, remember?

What’s your favorite go to healthy treat?
