Uh Oh Miso Naughty

Hey chickies and Chicos =) I hope ya’ll are having a wonderful day! We have a lot to catch up on, so let’s get to it.

As you all know ayer I was out of work because I was chaperoning Hailey’s class trip. Before I headed out, I started the day off with 1 Hour of Wii Fit Step and 10 minutes of Yoga Stretches and burned 512 Calories. A lot of you have been asking me about the Wii Step and basically when you play Wii Fit, you get to unlock different “games” and I unlocked the Free Style Step which means all I have to do is go on and off the Wii Board for either 10, 20, or 30 minutes depending on what I choose and it keeps a tally of how many steps I take etc while I watch TV. Yes it can be boring but c’mon, going on a Stepper, Elliptical, Treadmill, and Bike, etc is pretty much the same concept. I also amp it up by holding 3 or 5 lbs weights and do some upper body moves AND I place the board on extra mats to make it even higher =)


After my work out I had a bowl of Kashi Oatmeal with PB and 1/2 a Banana and my usual coffee.


After I had breakfast, I headed to the school to meet the class. Let me tell you, I should have worn a sports bra on this trip. After 20 years, these buses still have the worse Shocks! I was bouncing around like a freaking rag doll. I managed to keep the kids busy but teaching them how to do this thing where you put your hands together and wiggle your index finger. Not one, mastered this lol

We finally arrived to Puppet Works and my “girls” could not have been happier


But soon my happiness turned into pure fear! this place was scary and I am 29 Years old…imagine how some of the kids were. Some had to sit with the teachers because they were freaking out lol…I was about to sit on someone's lap too HAHA



The show itself was not that bad…they did the Ugly Duckling with Shadow Puppets and Peter and the Wolf and The Frog Prince with Marionettes



After the trip, things took an ugly turn and I blame it on the bus we were on (666). Only bad things can come from this. I believe I was possessed by Ghosts of Mari’s Past!


I had a serious case of the Mac Attack and only one thing could calm the beast….


I know I know…bad bad Mari…I blame it on the bus.

After Lunch we went back to my place and Hailey played with my Wii Fit. She tried this new “workout” which is pretty much a meditation/zen challenge. You have to sit very still on the board and just focus and not shake or move for a total of 3 minutes. If you move the slightest bit, it will stop. Homefries mastered it =)

I was craving more naughty food and talked my sister into ordering a Pepperoni Pizza. I’m sorry Jen for making you eat this! It was not me, it was the demon inside lol… ohhh and we watched Paranormal Activity too!


I was contemplating sharing this with you guys… I was up for most of the night debating if I should just ignore the fact that I ate this and pretend that I was a good girl ayer. But this blog is about honesty and I have to show that no one is perfect and we all have slip ups but what we do about it, is what counts. I know some people might judge my eats but I have to be honest about what I do.

I felt bad about eating all this junk so I did 30 more minutes with my Wii Fit Step and 5 minutes of Stretch and burned 291 Calories.

According to my calculations, I ate about 2025 Calories but burned 803.

My alarm never went off this morning, I was listening to my Michael Buble Station on Pandora via my phone all night and I guess Pandora trumps the Alarm lol. Thankfully my internal alarm went off and I got up around 6:40 and did 50 minutes with my Wii Fit Step (and 5 mins stretch) while I watched Biggest Loser and burned 461 Calories.

For Breakfast I had Chobani Honey Yogurt with 1/2 a Banana and PB with my usual coffee.


I packed my own lunch today and plan to stay on track. If it were not for my workouts, I would be an umpa lumpa right now lol

Have a great day!
