I Can’t Stop Popping!

Hey loves!!!!!

I have reached new levels of soreness! This morning I woke up and it felt like I was riding a horse all night! I am still feeling the pain from my Sunday workout at the gym. AND Jil Jil thought today was a perfect day to do a lower body workout…that B*tch! At some points, I didn’t know if it was sweat or tears streaming down my face lol. Thankfully her workout went pretty fast and I burned 282 Calories in 33 minutes.

Before coming into work, I stopped at CVS and picked up some Airborne and Tylenol Muscle Aches & Pain…I don’t think they kicked in yet lol.

For Breakfast this morning, I had a bowl of Kashi Oatmeal with PB and Raisins and my usual café on the side.


And for lunch I just finished eating 1/2 a cup of Brown Rice with 1 cup of Spanish Style Black Beans with Onions and Peppers. Luigi these are not spicy and coconutty but you got me intrigued to try this! I might do that next week =) do you have any recipes???

For Dessert, I packed a bag of Popchips! Okay I will say this disclaimer…JUST because a company sends me samples does not guarantee that I am going to give them a great review…I have to keep my integrity. With that said….I LOVED THESE! I decided to try the Sea Salt & Vinegar first and it was love at first bite lol.


Each bite was PACKED with flavor and very crunchy! I was scared that they would be soft/mushy because they are not fried but my skepticism soon vanished once I gave them a try.


And are they healthy?!?! HELL YEA!

From PopChips.com

all the flavor.
where's the fat?

We don't fry it (unhealthy). We don't bake it (undelicious). We take wholesome potatoes, add a little heat and pressure, and pop! It's a chip. The only thing added is a flavorful blend of seasonings for a snack so delicious and crispy, you won't even notice it's (we hesitate to say) healthier.

What's out? More than half the fat of fried potato chips, trans fats, and cholesterol. All gone. For good. What's popped in? Only what's natural, tons of delicious, and plenty of crunch.

never fried.
never baked.
all natural.
nothing fake or phony.
  • no trans fat
  • no saturated fat
  • no cholesterol
  • no preservatives


I can not wait to work my way through the box! Thanks again, Corinne!

Wish me luck! I am heading to the gym tonight with Mo and my sister…I will try to focus on cardio and upper body =)

  2. i love those popchips too! my fav flavor. like the original too. have a great day girl!

  3. Dude if you're still in pain then you know it was a good workout. That's all I have to say about that ;)

    I've never had popchips but I need to give them a try...one of these days.

  4. I love the title of this post Mari. LOL!

    Too bad pringles has the saying, "Once you pop, you can't stop!" because that would be so appropriate for popchips.

  5. Popchips cook so awesome! I seriously need to find some!

  6. I was hoping for a video of you pop-lockin' I'm disappointed.

    My advice is to take an epsom salt bath. It feels amazing on sore muscles. Hope it's just temporary!

  8. Popchips are another snack I wish I could get here. I may have my mom send some, but I am worried about transporting them. I once had a bag of chips mailed to me and they all popped open with the air pressure on the plane. I want some!!!

I want to try the other flavors. hope your pain has died down girl. and YES to all yogiis saying the same - oye...i love it but i just want a book that tells me the ANSWER all ready...LOL - i know i know - "it's all within in "...ugh :)

  12. If you can get to Costco, they sell MEGA-BIG packs of those Pop chips! BBQ flavor is the best!
