Feeling Snacky…

Hey loves! thanks for all the positive vibes ayer…you Chicas are A-wait for it-Mazing!

After work ayer I went home and chatted on the phone with my friend Jen for about 2 hours! Before I knew it, it was after 6 and I was starved. I was pms’ing and moody and all I wanted to do was either call Atlantic Diner or Wing Luck and have din din delivered BUT instead I made Mooshu Tofu again. This batch included Brussels, Kale, Onions, Mushroom, Peppers, and Tofu in Sesame Teriyaki Sauce, PB, and Szechuan Hot Paste, with a Tortilla


I also snacked on Protein Cookie Dough (April you know me too well!)


I should have stopped here but nope not so much, I also had a bag of Popchips! I am almost done with them…sad panda! I know that I will definitely buy some bags when I go to the supermarket!


I was planning to lay on the couch and feel sorry for myself but Missy tweeted about going to the gym and that was the mojo that I needed! Thanks chica!!!!!! I ended up doing Jillian’s Wii game and burned 378 Calories in 45 minutes.

I stayed up pretty late watching the Jersey Shore Finale and the reunion special! I seriously love this show and I hope they do a second season =). As always Ronnie and Sam had to bring their drama lol.


Since I was up until Midnight, I had no oomph to get up this morning and workout BUT after work I’m going to the gym with my sister and plan to do Day 3 of C25K program =). I am already dressed in sweats so I have no excuse not to go.

For Breakfast I just had Kashi Oatmeal with PB and a small Banana and my usual Café con Leche


Lunch Preview


I have so much things to do today…packing up and throwing things out etc. I decided that I am taking a couple of days off next week EVEN though it IS my last week. I refuse to lose my vacation/personal days =)

Yoga News:

I am happy to hear that I am not the only one that found Shiva Rea a tad awkward

Sarah said “I have tried to do two Shiva Rea programs before and it is either too confusing or too challenging for me.”


EatMoveLove thought “She's uber-popular but honestly I tried a routine by her before and was ...uh confused?? she's very flowy and just wants you to "go with it" --- i felt weird - like i was doing some kind of a rain-dance or something :0

I also felt a tad silly doing some of her moves…she had this thing called flowing cobra, I didn’t know if I was break dancing or doing Yoga hahaha

Have a great day loves!



  1. fun chat! =) glad you decided to cook, that is always better than anything you can buy!

    by the way, I was gonna buy that soup because of you, but ummm, it is crazy expensive, like 3.99! what tha? for one soup!

    why doesn't the stuff I wanna buy ever go on sale? geezzzz!

    have a good weekend ;)

  2. Hope you have a fantastic weekend!!

  3. This is working for 2 minutes! I'm glad I was motivating last night! I did not wake up but I plan to take Core Fusion after work!

  4. The mooshu tofu looks really good. I should give that a try. I am trying to cut back on the amount of tofu I serve my husband. Glad he at least goes along with my vegetarian lifestyle. He did however make some cheesesteaks for dinner last night. Let's just say the griddle is in the kitchen waiting for him to clean it! Have a good weekend.

  5. You are right PB makes everything better!

    I am always jealous of your protein ice cream...always

  6. I couldn't stay awake for Jersey Shore, but I dvr'd that mess! I can't wait to watch Snookie go "WAAAAHHH!" Are Sami & Ronnie really still a couple? I don't believe it. She's always mad at him.

    Good luck with your yoga!

  7. Great eats Mari!!!

    Only 1 more week :)

  8. 'm glad you're feeling better. Have fun with your sister at the gym tonight.

    And thank you for your comment on my run. It felt good!

  9. LOL I am picturing you break dancing. hahaha

  10. haha that yoga sounds fun!!
    thanks for tolerating me last night on twitter :)
    that sound looks great!!

  11. Hang in there <3 We are all here for you!!!

  12. Hm, I've never tried Shiva Rea. There are so many yoga DVD's out there. More than I can count. It's definitely all about finding the right one for you.

  13. Hope you are having a fun workout, you mad woman!
    I'm proud of you for not ordering takeout and for the attempt at breakdancing. I seriously have no idea what you mean, but I'm picturing you doing the worm!

  14. I'm so glad you cooked instead of ordered in...I'm sure you would have felt worse for it in the end. And that mooshu tofu looks awesome!

    I'm glad you're seeing the silver lining and working off your aggression at the gym. Way to channel your negative energy :p

  15. popchips are so good! protein cookie dough sounds interesting, yum!

  16. OMG, Pop chips are my crack - especially the salt and vinegar ones - have you tried those??
