Your Resolution Should Be…

Good morning everyone! I am soooo sleepy…last night when I was trying to go to sleep, I smelled it …Cigarettes! GRRR. I yelled through the walls to my neighbor “YOUR RESOLUTION SHOULD BE TO STOP SMOKING!”. I tried to ignore it so I cocooned myself under the covers and just hoped that I didn’t suffer from 2nd Hand Smoke.

Eats and Workouts

Ayer for din din I had I made Kale Chips in EVOO and Salt with Brussels Sprouts in EVOO, Salt, and  Garlic, Tofu in BBQ Sauce, with a little of Apple and Cranberry Dressing


And for Dessert I had 1 Serving of Protein Cookie Dough


Even though I worked out earlier in the day with Jillian, I decided to do something else before bed so I did 30 minutes with my Wii Step (elevated) and Namaste Yoga and burned 353 Calories.

Do you guys light Candles when you do Yoga? I love smelling sweet scented candles when I am finding my Zen lol



This morning I struggled to get out of bed but I managed to do 30 Day Shred Level 2 with 8lb Weights and burned 264 Calories in 28 minutes.

For Breakfast I had Kashi Oatmeal with Raisins and Natural PB


I found these snack size Raisin boxes which are perfect to use in meals. They are only 45 Calories per box.

So I may be out of a job very soon! we have NO MONEY and I refuse to sit here doing work; not knowing if I will get paid for it in two weeks! I already told my boss to let me know because I would like to file for unemployment ASAP. Thank God for my job at the Gym and this new client that I picked up. She already called me to come tonight and scheduled an appt for Thursday too. Maybe this is a sign that I need to do what I LOVE to do; which is TRAIN full time! I will remain positive and take it as it comes…



  1. My neighbors smoke pot everyday and I can smell it in my apartment. I hate smelling other people's smoke!

    Where did you get that candle?!?! I want it!!!

    Have a great week!

  2. Here at my work this one resident smokes and it often travels into my office. I keep a scented diffuser in here to overpower the smoke scent. A diffuser might be good for you since you shouldn't burn a candle while you're sleeping.

    I want that candle, too!! It look's like it would smell (and taste) SO good! I only burn "food" scented candles at home, too.

    MISS YOU! Glad I'm able to stop by & read up on your blog. :)

  3. your dinner looks fab! love the tofu! uggh i HATE the smell of smoke! discusting. sorry girl

  4. I would hate smelling smoke all the time. It would irk me!

    Good luck vibes on the job! It will all work out :)I just know it.

  5. the candle was a gift...when I get home I will check the name brand on the bottom =)

    Thanks for the good vibes, Sarah!

  6. Second hand smoke reeks! I light candles all the time. It really sets a realxing mood.

  7. I agree! People should stop smoking!!!

    mmm apple cranberry dressing! My fave!!!

  8. As for the job situation, I'll think positive thoughts for you!

  9. Gross! Sorry for the smoke situation and job worries! If you really love to train though you should go for it :-)

  10. good luck with the job stuff... things will work out!

  11. 8 pound weights with the Shred? You are strong!! I die with my 5 pound ones! Good luck with the job situation. No funn!

  12. im so sorry to hear about the job honey... it might very well be a sign that you should pursue your passion! and kudos to finding a passion that keeps you in shape!

  13. Oh yikes, I hope you don't loose your job. Either way, I'm sure your talent will help you get a new job (maybe a better one?) soon anyway! Glad you have a new client :)

    I don't light candles when I do yoga, but i LOVE the idea!

  14. I can't beleive you can smell the smoke through the walls. That's what you should be burning candles for, and then complain to management, although they probably can't do anything about it.

  15. Oh, Mari!! Sorry to hear about your job situation!

    The person that lives below me smokes sometimes, but luckily it only infiltrates the kitchen. I would be livid if I could smell it in my bedroom.

    Yes, I light candles when I do yoga at home. There's just something warm and cozy about it.

  16. ohh man I am so sorry about the neighbors!! I hate 2nd hand smoke, or smoke in general!

    I love candles, but just as long as the scent isnt too overpowering! sometimes its crazy strong and i can get woozy from the smell!

    good luck on the job, I know everything will work out for you!

  17. I went thru something similar with my old job last year ... it's really stressful! BUT you've definitely got the right attitude .. seeing the positive in it .. so glad for u! Go forth & conquer :)

  18. I think that's so neat that you train! Sorry to hear about the job, but the if the training is what you's probably a sign : )

  19. That candle looks freaking amazing! I love sweet candles.....mmmmm

    Great post!


  20. Ugh, I hate smoke! Good for you for yelling at him ;-)

    Sorry to hear about your job, but perhaps it is a sign like you said. Great attitude girlie, keep it up!
