Productive Day…

Hey everyone! I hope ya’ll are having a great day and you SHOULD be because it is FRIIIIIDAY!

I woke up this morning and the first thing I saw was a freaking GHOST! I knocked out last night and left the tv on the Sundance Channel which I heart but this morning they were giving a scary Japanese movie and I freaked out lol. Don’t get me wrong, I love scary movies but that it not the first thing I want to see. Oh talking about scary movies..they are going to give the Original Texas Chainsaw Massacre tonight on IFC at midnight.

This morning for breakfast I had Chobani Peach Yogurt with Raisins, 1 Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, and PB.


I love yogurt messes lol DSCN4464

After I digested, I did my Scheduled Jillian Wii Workout followed by I Want Those Arms and Namaste Yoga and burned 510 Calories in 75 Minutes. Thankfully my Wii game is working properly and it recorded my workout! The only zeros were because I didn’t do that particular move. I need to figure out the positioning of the Wii remote when I do Squat Jacks because it kept giving me Yellow instead of Green.


After my workout, I decided to clean…I started with my fridge and freezer, continued to my living room, and finished up with the bedroom. 

For Lunch  I made my Spicy PB Pasta but this time with WW Pasta, Tofu, and Mushrooms in PB, Sesame Teriyaki Sauce, Hot Szechuan Paste, and Red Pepper Flakes. I know it doesn’t look that appealing but trust me it tastes delish.

    Gelareh @

    PS. would you please add the name/url option please :)

  13. Jealous of the meet-up!

  14. Mari, nice looking food! Although even when I tease you, I admire how you eat so healthily for the majority of the time.

    I have some questions:

    (1) Can you name at least 10 Dominican recipes? And which is your favorite?

    (2) Which US celebrity male or female, would you most like to be, and why?

    (3) If you had one wish, what would you wish for?

  15. The the wii is working again. Have fun with your meet up. I probably would have peed my pants if I woke up to a scary movie.

  16. You need to take that Wii to the Wii people are request a new one!! That's so frustrating. I bet they weren't expecting people to actually USE IT know? You are so amazing at keeping up with your exercise schedule, it's very rare.

    Your lunch looks so fantastic. I plan on making PB noodles for one of my meals in a couple weeks!

    Have fun at the blogger meet up. I will be there in spirit. If they have a Greek salad on the menu, please order it for me ;)

  17. yay, margaritas! :)

    I love Luigi's questions, good ones.

    I really want a Wii too... no likey tofu, I really wish I did, because I wanna quit meat.

    How do you stay so positive and when you are down, what do you do?

  18. Yay again for the blogger meet-up! So excited.

    I'm glad to see you got the Wii working. And that you are eating so much PB pasta. Good stuff.

  19. Love yogurt messes but NOT scary movies!

  20. sounds like its going to be a fun meet up for you all :)
    awesome pasta dish!

  21. I wish I could come! Have a great time!

    What Wii game are you using? I want to get my mom a good, challenging game for her wii, and it looks like this one fits the bill!

  22. Not only do I wish I lived near NYC, but I would love to be meeting all of you ladies! Have fun :)
