Happy Dance

YES, Fitnessista, I’m doing the happy Friday dance!

This week has definitely been a change, as I started back to school on Tuesday. It felt so weird to be back!! It was really hard for me to get my brain back into “school mode” because I’m still in “summer mode!”

I’ve gotten used to going to sleep late and waking up late so my body is feeling pretty worn out by now, having to switch around those times. So I don’t know about all of you, but I am glad the weekend is here so that I can recuperate! this week has just kind of been a whirlwind of craziness. But I think that next week, everything will settle down and become more normal. For now though…TGIF!


On the eating front, I just finished off a lovely lunch, made from leftovers….the best thing for the lunches the next day!

Last night I made an awesome batch of whole wheat pizza, following Jenna’s Recipe. It was just as delish as last time. :)

So for lunch today, I had one of my FAVORITE salads ever…none other than…

Pizza Salad:


This was so so so so (so so so) GOOD! Here is what I used:

  • 1 slice of leftover pizza, torn up
  • spinach leaves
  • broccoli slaw
  • sliced grape tomatoes
  • chopped onion
  • tomato paste + garlic powder + sea salt + basil (for my dressing)

Fork lickin’ good

As for dessert, I munched on some yummy grapes:



Lately for dessert, I have been enjoying a very easy recipe from a fellow blogger, Carrots n Cake!

No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies!!!


I made these fabulous little cookies except that I used almond butter and about 1/2 the amount of agave nectar. They turned out very good!! Note: if you decrease the amount of agave nectar, like me, you will probably have to add in a bit of water otherwise they are pretty dry.

This recipe took my 5 minutes to make. So hurry up and make these babies ASAP!

On the the agenda for tonight is going to my high school’s football game. Even though i’m exhausted, one of the clubs I am in runs the concession stands, which means I will be helping out. Then I will most likely come home and crash out. Wild child, let me tell ya. ;)
