Healthy No-Bake Pumpkin Yogurt Pie

Happy Thanksgiving!  
I'll be thankful when these 2 get along!
Well for me it is anyway..in a mini version.  I am working a double on Thanksgiving so I am cooking a Thanksgiving inspired meal for Kyle and I tonight.  Christmas music is blaring, my cranberry sauce is cooling, and my pie is cooking in the fridge.  
Cooking in the fridge?  Yup! I found a delicious, healthy no-bake pumpkin pie.  That's why I love the blog world.  I found this pie on Meghann's blog who found it on Monica's blog.  Healthy, quick, easy, festive.  I'm sold. Like I said, "cooking" in the fridge.
No-Bake Pumpkin Yogurt Pie



Ingredients:
source
  • Pie crust - I used reduced fat graham cracker
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1 cup greek yogurt - I used only one 6oz container. A little less but cheaper.
  • 1 package s/f butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
Directions: 
Mix pumpkin, yogurt, pudding mix and pie spice. Carefully spread into the pie shell. (Careful the mix will be very thick and might crack pie crust.) Refrigerate for 1 hour. Eat.
I said it was easy??
Before I could do my limited baking I had school this am and worked out.  Here's what the gym trip looked like:
- .75 mile warm up jog
- 12 warm up prone leg curls
SuperSet #1:
- 15 leg extensions with a 5 second negative every 5th one
- Walking lunges with weighted barbell
- 8 jump squats onto box.  Squat, jump up, squat, jump down.
- Repeat
Superset #2:
- Reverse lunges with shoulder press and wide squat x12.  It's a little complicated, but start feet together with the db at your shoulders.  Step back on your right leg to a lunge and do a shoulder press as you do.  Step together.  Repeat with left leg back. Then step apart and do a wide squat.  Bring legs back together and start again.
- Wide squats with DB to failure
- Barbell reverse grip bent over row x 12
- Repeat
SuperSet #3:
- 6 machine chest press each arm, 6 both arms
- 45 second run at 6.0, 15 incline
- repeat chest machine
- 30 second run at 6.5, 15 incline
- 10 pushups
- 25 second run at 7.0, 15 incline


Finish with abs.  I did reverse leg curls and reverse leg lifts.  As always try to rest as little as possible between sets.
Post-workout I fueled up with a black cherry, vanilla smoothie.  I have read several times that cherries after a workout help with soreness.  We shall see.
I'm off to start on the rest of my Mock-giving dinner.  Look for full details on WIAW tomorrow! Also check out my post on what I'm thankful for.


What are your Thanksgiving plans?


Love and eay peezy pies,
Carissa & Kyle
