DIY Healthy Cookies

Who doesn't want to have a nice body for summer? 
Well I know I do, but then again I would hate to not be able to have a treat every now and then so I did some research, and that includes talking to my mum and grandma ;) and I found out this super easy cookie recipe! It blew my mind how easy they are to make, so I had to try them out! 

Ingredients:
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup oats
  • raisins/ currants (optional)

Method:
Peel the banana and rip it into parts, pour the cup of oats in and raisins (if you don't like raisins then go ahead and add some other dried fruit!) then mash the whole mixture up with your fingers. 
Lay out some tin foil onto a baking tray and give it a little spray of olive oil so that the cookies won't stick.
Now put some cookie mixture into the palm of your hand and shape it, put it onto the baking tray.

Turn on the oven to 180°C and leave the cookies in the oven for around 15-30 mins.
 or 
Put the cookies on a plate and into the microwave and heat them for 30s - 1min

Enjoy!

Healthy ?

Helloooo!
Guess what ?!? I am officially saying that I will try to get healthy! 
I will work out 4-5 times a week (torture) 
Ha! Now that I've said this to the public I can't take it back! see what I just did there .. :3
When I told people about it, their reactions were just like: haaa! yehh I bet you will!
no one believes in me :c this might be because I said it so many times and did not last a MONTH!
So, I plan it to be like this:
- always drink water
- watch my carbs
- work out 4-5 times a week
- don't eat my food in a rush
- make he unhealthy healthy
- cut out the snacking

Always drink water
That is a thing that I'm not very used to as I prefer fizzy drinks (soda), squashes and juices.
I don't even drink enough to be honest, usually I'll have up to 2 glasses a day which is ghastly!
It's not enough, now I will chug on water about 2-3 times an hour, even if it's little sips it makes a difference.
Recently I bought a yoga bottle which holds 1 litre, I will fill it up in the morning and afternoon.. It will be with  me everywhere I go basically.

Watch my carbs
Not obsessively though, just make sure when you take a take-away don't order the chips with it, just enjoy your burger or if you eat pizza then don't eat the crust.
By watching my carbs I mean don't cut them out totally because your body actually needs them, but sometimes you can use these extra calories for some nice broccoli or carrots.

Work out 4-5 times a week
I've fond some really good workouts on youtube so I'll be using these to keep my fat burning :p one of my favourite channels is bolgilates. LINK: http://www.youtube.com/user/blogilates
She is an amazing coach and makes a workout bearable, yes that's how much I hate workingout.

soo yeah, I hope it helped some of you decide to get healthy too and see you soon
