Food and FITNESS Fascination

OK, I need to get serious about my fitness plan before the holidays get here. I've been keeping with the cardio part of my exercise plan, but have let the resistance training go a bit. Ugh! I'll be drinking 90 oz. of water daily, cutting down on some stuff in my diet, nothing major, sugar and white stuff, no carbs after 3 pm...blah, blah, the usual. I will still have some treats!I am meeting a friend to work out tomorrow, then a healthy lunch. We're working out at 9:30 a.m. and not lunching until 1:30 p.m. I made some energy bars to hold us over.

Energy Bars: chocolate chip peanut butter
1 cup leftover oatmeal
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup peanut butter
1 lg egg
75 grams Chocolate Protein Powder*
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line an 8"x8" square baking pan with parchment and non-stick spray.
Mix all of the ingredients together.
Spread in the pan. Bake 30 minutes.
Cool completely and then cut into squares.
*I used Chocolate Muscle Milk Light
