I don’t know about you but this weekend went by in a blurr. I’m not sure that I really did anything…other than some laundry.

I think the most exciting thing this weekend was on Friday when I made awesome Raw Chocolate Chip Cookies from Angela’s blog Oh she glows…. They were FANTASTIC! I was a little nervous as I’d never made a raw version of anything before, so I only made a half a batch. These were the perfect treat and perfect for a summertime dessert, when you don’t want to run the oven.

This week the husband is working second shift, so its a week of lonely nights for me. Luckily I have a couple of nights out planned this week, which should keep me going. I really hate second shift work, I think its actually the worst shift. I’m glad I’m not the one that has to adjust my sleep schedule for it. I’m absolutely a bear if I’m not in bed by midnight.

Today I got up and made a bowl of oatmeal, added a tablespoon each of raw almond butter and strawberry all fruit. It was good, but I don’t think I’ll make that combo again.

Lunch today was pizza. Everytime I ask my husband what he wants for dinner, he says pizza, so instead of ordering out I made pizza at home. I used pizza dough from Trader Joes and added pizza sauce, portabello mushrooms and 2 turkey sweet italian sausage links. I topped it with Krafts Italian cheese blend. It was very good, but I don’t think my stomach appreciated it. I’m not sure why.

I’m off do start week 2 of the Fitnessista’s Summer Shape Up challenge. So far I’ve really been enjoying it.

I think dinner tonight will be the rest of my salad from dinner last night, I had a HUGE Cobb salad and I could only finish half of it. So there’s dinner tonight. I’m looking forward to it.

Have a good night!
