Funfetti Cookies and A Workout
**Have you entered my book giveaway yet??? If not, do it now :D***
Hi everyone! I hope your weekends are going well. Last night I did something for the first time ever- I went to a movie by myself! This may not seem like a huge feat, but for me it is. I’ve always been too embarrassed to go to alone, but last night I just decided to bite the bullet and do it. And I’m really glad I did.
I saw Real Steel. It was awesome! Granted, I thoroughly enjoy action movies, but Hugh Jackman was sexy as ever and the story between his character and his son’s was really touching. The movie was entertaining and had me laughing and almost crying.
Anyhoo…I’ve also got a lower body strength workout for you guys! I did this yesterday and let me tell you- my legs are so sore today! It really worked them.
Lower Body Strength Workout
Complete 2 sets of 12-15 reps for each exercise
- Box jumps
- Box lateral shuffles
- Box jump marches
- Mountain climbers
- Bench jumps (see the video; this is different than the box jumps!)
- Leg press
- Straight-leg deadlifts with barbell
- Calf raises
- Rear lunges with dumbbells
- Single-leg box squats (bodyweight)
Be prepared for some soreness and make sure to select a weight that will challenge you!
Yesterday afternoon I also decided to make some cookies :D. I made cake mix cookies but instead of doing it the standard 3-ingredient way that uses oil, I used light Cool Whip! They are fantastic!
Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies
I made my cookies really small and therefore I was able to make 60 cookies! You could always make them larger, but you may need to adjust the cooking time a bit!
- 1 box Funfetti Cake Mix
- 1 8oz container Light Cool Whip
- 1 egg
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Mix all ingredients together. Batter will be thick!
- Drop by spoonful onto greased baking sheet
- Bake for 10-12 minutes
YUM YUM 😀
These taste amazing! And they are really easy to do!
Hope you all have an awesome Sunday! Make sure to enter my sweet giveaway.
