3 F*cking Minutes?!?!?!

Hello loves! I wanted to post earlier today but I thought it would be wise to wait until my mood changed…I had a HORRIBLE morning. Before I give you all the fabulous (insert sarcasm here) details, let’s do a quick recap…

Eats and Workouts

Ayer for lunch I made myself a sammie with a WW Wrap filled with Morningstar Buffalo Wings, Reduces Fat Swiss, Lettuce, Tomatoes, and homemade Guacamole


And my Fruit Salad for Dessert


Later in the evening I went to train my client and managed to burn 145 Calories in 45 minutes. I started to shave time off her workout sessions because she is NEVER ready when I get there. Ayer she had me wait 15 minutes so she only worked out for 45 lol. I let is slide the first couple of times, and even asked her to be on time but it’s been one month and she is STILL doing it. Am I being unfair? like seriously, I am coming to HER and she is not ready? what the heezy?

When I got home I made a quick din din…Tofu, Mushroom, and Brussels Stir-fry with PB, Teriyaki Sauce, Red Pepper Flakes, and Hot Szechuan Sauce.


I was feeling sick again last night so I had some Theraflu before bed…



This morning I woke up at 5:40 am again and headed to the gym with my sister. Before heading out, I had 1 scoop of Chocolate Light Muscle Milk


I had another great workout! Today I did day 1 of Week 6 of C25K which was a Brisk five-minute warm-up walk, then Jog 5 Minutes, Walk 3, Jog 8, Walk 3, Jog 5, Cool down. I jogged on 5.3 with 1 incline and for the last jog, I went up to 5.6 with 1 incline..and walked at 3.8-4. After that I hopped on the elliptical for 10 minutes and then did lower body strength training and burned a total of 640 Calories. I felt GREAT after my workout, until….

When we were walking to my car, I noticed that she was alllllll alone on the block…and when I got closer, I noticed a meter maid giving me a ticket! Street Cleaning started at 7:30 and I go to my car at 7:33! 3 MINUTES cost me 45 DOLLARS! (plus 2 bucks because I paid it online).

I decided to release my tension with some Yoga when I got back home and then had OIAJ for Breakfast…you can’t stay mad when you have this for breakfast!


I felt great again…until…

I went to CVS to fill a prescription, only to find out that they don’t have the medicine…I walked out and somehow from the pharmacy to my car, I lost the prescription! I looked and looked for it but didn’t find it…sad panda. Again, I decide to let it go…until…

I come into the office and someone was parked in my spot! I had to go hunt this person down and when I finally do he gives me a “so” look…MOVE YOUR CAR! At this point, I think God is testing me lol

But Wait it get better…the other day I checked the oil of my car and it was low so I put in a quart and it was still low so I put another quart. Only to find out this morning that you shouldn't check your oil when you just turn the car off or while it’s running. So now my car has 2 extra quarts of oil which is bad (according to my coworker) so I have to run to get an oil change when I leave here lol…

Now you see why I was in a mood this morning…thankfully I can laugh at it NOW…and move on. I paid the ticket off…called the pharmacy 3 times and by the third time, someone found my prescription YAY!

How does someone make themselves feel better???? CARBS! duh! For lunch I had a slice of Pizza with Mushroom, Olives, and Artichoke Hearts and a side of Garlic Knots.


All is right with the world again lol…

Have a great day loves!!!!! and if something ticks you off, today…just let it go =)



  1. Sorry about your stressful morning! Oats in a jar and pizza are perfect to put you in a better mood! I had my sushi :)

  2. oh Mari sorry about the crappy day! Garlic knots would cheer me up too.

    As for the client who is never there on time, I would do exactly what you are doing!

    I'm glad C25k Week 6 Day 1 wasn't too bad! Looks like you had a great workout!

  3. That sounds like a really rough day. Pizza and yoga sound like the perfect antidote...sometimes I think that days like this are just there to make us apprecciate the good ones. Ever notice how it all happens on one day?

    I don't think you are being unfair to your client at ALL. She books you for THE hour, not any random hour she feels like it. What if you had another client to go to after?

    Hope your day gets better!

  4. Sorry, I HATE days like that! I do love carbs though, so it all evens out.

    Also my work computer blocks your website for "inappropriate material." What is that about?! haha

  5. Great call on yoga and yummy-looking pizza to set your day straight again!

  6. OMg what a DAY you have had! wanna come over and watch chick flicks with the doggies?
    And yes carbs cure all shitty days. Im so sorry you arent feeling better! Im still coughin my ass off! I am sending you get well vibes!

  7. ooo OIAJ!! yayayaya
    i LOVE muscle milk..its my fav
    sorry about your morning :( have a great weekend!

  8. Oh dear, what a day!

    We had a pharmacy snafu this week & had to go from one to another because one was out..yada yada yada...then it turned out the gneric is now considered a brand so it was more $...soooo, I feel ya. ;)

    At least the food was all yum! Gotta have good eats.

    Oh, I'd cut time on the lady making you wait as well. You're going to her & she is late? Heck no, that is just wrong. I mean, how much more convenient could it be...well, unless you worked out for her I guess. lol

    Wishing you a fabulous weekend to make up for the bad day!

  9. That SUCKS!!! Glad you let it all go. You are doing the right thing with your client. She has to respect your time. If you ever need any advice about handling clients, feel free to shoot me an email. I've been dealing with this stuff for the last 10 years and know it can be hard to know what to do.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  10. That majorly STINKS! I'm so sorry you had such a lame day :( Boo!

    <3 jess

  11. That IS stressful. I would be so upset about the meter thing I would probably feel like crying. I might even... a little.

    Again, I can't get enough of your food pictures. That pizza looks wonderful. And I absolutely love peanut butter and banana together.

    Actually everything looks great. Ha, Ha.

    I'm trying a new recipe tomorrow: oatmeal, eggwhite and chocolate protein powder to try and make some Belgian waffles. Yes, I will be photographing that.

  12. I hope tomorrow is better for you. That is one tough day!!

  13. Oh no Mari! I am glad you are feeling a little bit better now. These are the kind of days you just wish you stayed in bed :)

    Hope tomorrow is better!

  14. waiting for clients is annoying. when i teach yoga if the class is supposed to start at 5:30, i start it at 5:32. If i wait til 5:35 then someone comes at 537. If i wait til 537, they come at 5:40. Give an inch take a mile kinda thing, i swear! i like your strategy of just time shaving :)

  15. You are so funny! Rough morning for sure, but you have a great attitude. I think we've all had those days, and when things happen you almost have to laugh at yourself, like WHY ME?! On the other hand, carbs cure bad moods and those garlic knots are making my mouth water at 8am on a Saturday morning! Have a great weekend chica :)

  16. Sorry about your bad day. I think your car will be fine. You should only have to worry if there isn't enough oil.
    As far as the client goes, if she's paying you, is there really anything you can do about it? I don't know, I'd say something and then just let it go.
    Hope your day is better today.

  17. 3 minutes!? Ah! That's city life right there...I remember it...unfondly!!

    Re: your client. I would be annoyed too! I would say something like "it's your money, but I want you to see the results you deserve".

    Have an awesome weekend, girl!!

  18. bad girl with all the cursing!! lol

    when you feel like that call me up, you can yell at me and then you won't eat carbs! wala! solution.

    run run run girl! =)

  19. i hate parking tickets. i'm impressed you got yours paid already!

    i usually forget until my parents get the second notice in the mail. "kalin, did you get a parking ticket?" "um, i don't know?"

  20. girl you need a drink. head over to 5 burros like right now and get a honkin margarita ;)

    can i tell you how long it took me to figure out that ayer means yesterday..

  21. aww what a day!! I hear ya on the carbs! I hope you are feeling better today :)

    that pizza and the knots look amazinggg

  22. Mmmm yes carbs are definitely the way to go in a situation like this. ANd what delicious carbs too...OIAJ and pizza. Can't get any better than that.

    I'm sorry you had such a frustrating day!

    Next time you go to train that lady, I would just mention to her that it's an hour from the time you get there. So if she makes you wait 15 minutes then she's only going to work out for 45. Then you can't say you didn't tell her. I mean for all she knows, you could have another client lined up.

  23. Carbs to make you feel better ?? I won't say anything....the pizza DOES look pretty good... :) ESpecially those atichokes!

    Sorry about your shitty day, it does sound shitty, yikes. I would tell my client that she isn't going to see any results if she starts shaving 15 minutes off of her time, each time we meet. Maybe that would get her to hurry the heck up! As for your car, and the 45 dollars, look on the bright side, I owe 500 dollars because of some ASSHOLE who hit my car in the paring lot!!
    I hope your weekend has gotten better :)

  24. Glad you are able to laugh about it now!!

    That sucks about the ticket! That's why my husband takes care of our cars, I wouldn't have known that about the oil either!

  25. Wow, with all that you had to deal with, I am amazed that you were able to come here and say you are laughing at it now, whew. I hope the rest of your days this week are exponentially better!
