No Bake Oatmeal Raisin Cookies #HappyHolidays

The last 24-hours have been busy, busy! First let me back up a little…

Pete Larson who is a blogger for left a comment on my post about running with anxiety, suggesting a particular book to read. I admire Pete with his expertise in running and awesome shoe collection, so I went out right away and picked up the book, Spark.



Page 64 baby, it’s a good read. THANK YOU PETE!

I sometimes also impress myself.¬† I have to admit that. Maybe it’s even healthy to do so…I like new challenges.

I made my first ever Christmas Wreath!



If that’s not pretty, I don’t know what is! Okay, I need some lights, but I’m very happy.

Who knew it was so easy to find a wreath for $10 bucks and add some ornaments? Is that how you decorate these things? I have no clue, but I’m happy. ūüôā

We also stocked up plenty for the winter-snowy week ahead as well.


You would think I’m a sucker for Wegman’s and you are probably right. I love that store very, very much. To the point I drive a near 20 minutes, $7 in gas to get there, and it is worth every single penny.

They have amazing deals, coupons and natural-organic sections all over the store. If I wasn’t there, I wouldn’t be able to bring you wholesome, healthy snacks like these incredible, No Bake Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!

No lie – they are fantastic.


I also attempted to exercise again, but Jimmy broke down! (Jim, the treadmill.)

PS This was totally me. It just stopped while I was running full force!

I would have ran outside but it’s icy and rainy. Instead, I worked on some healthy recipes for the week. If I can’t exercise, I should back up on those calories, right?

On the menu this week:

    These look fabulous. Dates are one of my favorite foods and peanut butter so I’m sure I’d love these. It would be a good change of pace from the refined sugars I’ve been letting myself slip into eating lately.
