Happy Lunar New Year

Hey everyone!!! I hope you guys are having a great Sunday and a even better Valentines Lunar New Year! It is the year of the Tiger so get your claws sharpened and practice your growl! (((((MEOW))))))

I am feeling so much better today and I owe it to an endless consumption of this…Theraflu…


And somewhat healthy eats…

Saturday Breakfast


Saturday Lunch; Homemade Quesadilla with Black Beans (w/ onions and peppers) and 2% Mexican Blend Cheese in a Rudi’s Wrap with a side of homemade Guacamole (Avocado, Tomato, Onions, Garlic Powder, Sour Cream, Salt, Hot Sauce) Reduced Fat Sour cream, and Lettuce with Salsa.


With a Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino…yuuuuums


I also decided to make a Fruit Salad with Sweet Condensed Milk, Reduced Fat Cream Cheese, Apple, Pear, Tangerine, and Grapes. Which I ended up eating through out the day and for din din too. It tasted AMAZING but the Sweet Condensed Milk has WAY too many calories…next time I will make it with FF Cool Whip and Reduced Fat Cream Cheese =)


Before Bed I did day 3 of week 4 of C25K but I couldn’t make it to the gym so I did at home with my Wii Fit =) and burned 306 Calories in 40 minutes, including stretch.


This morning I went to the gym with my sister and did day 1 of week 5 of C25K, Captain Chair, Upper Body, and Arc Trainer and burned 571 Calories in 1 Hour. I ran at 5.2 – 6.0 with incline of 1 and walked at 3.5 – 4.0 also with incline of 1, it added up to 2.5 miles in 30 minutes…Sorry for tm’ing you so early Amanda lol (she is my C25K Buddy and we are keeping each other accountable)

For Breakfast I had Kashi Oatmeal with Raisins and PB with my usual Cafe Con Leche


Have I mentioned how much I hate the snow? My car got stuck twice today, when I was trying to get in and out of parking spots..AND we are expecting more snow in the next couple of day…I miss you spring! I miss you so much! please make an appearance…

In Scale News…I have not weighed myself as of yet! I might do it maƱana or just wait until March 1st =)

Have a great day everyone!!!! (((((((ROAR)))))))



  1. Hooray for skipping the scale - so proud of you Mari! :D

    I am with you on the snow - they have two inches in the forecast and I am so done with it already!

    Happy V-Day!

  2. mmm the year of the tiger. sounds like its gonna be a ferocious one ;)

    looks like you had a mexican fiesta at lunch! so jealous :)

  3. Woot woot for the Lunar New Year! Can we make it fall on V-Day every year? So that we don't have to even mention V-Day? Ever again.

    Kudos for you on waiting to weigh in. Self control can be a good thing.

    Don't talk about snow to me. I don't want to see any more of it for at least the next few years.

  4. Love your Mexican meals! The fruit salad looks great too! Happy New Year hahaha

  5. I love your ''meow''and ''roar''!! Happy V-day to you too chica. Have a great Sunday!

  6. You are so funny! You make me laugh..."Roar"! LOL thanks for clue-ing me in; I had no idea. A lunar new year!

    Me too. I'm sick. of. the. snow. and. cold. Spring is still weeks away too.

    That wrap looks delicious! Have a good v-day!

  7. ROAR back at'cha! Hmm, year of the tiger makes me want to start singing, "Eye Of The Tiger".

    I am so ready for spring! This winter has felt really long. I can't remember what it feels like to be outside without being bundled up in a zillion layers of fleece and down!

    Either that banana pic was taken in the gym or you have some crazy cool furniture in your apartment... :D

    Scales: JUST SAY NO! Roarrrrrr!

  8. Yummy looking eats. Yea for the lunar new year.

  9. The eats looked great today!! Hope you are feeling better. I can't take much more of the snow either!! It's nice the first time it falls, but ENOUGH already!!

  10. Ooh, happy new year! I like this better than that other holiday day. Hehe.

  11. Glad to hear you are feeling better! I think I'm celebrating New Year right along with you!

    I think all the good foods are making you feel better- I'm convinced my nasty smoothie healed me too!

    I'm loving the fruit salad. All I ever put in mine was fruit and a little lime juice- so boring!

  12. Yum, starbuck's bottled fraps are the best. Yesterday we had to push my friend's car out of the snow. The streets are still pretty bad around here!

  13. Yummy fruit salad!! I used to make it like this with coconut milk ;) so Delish!!


  14. Happy Lunar New Year to you too! I like this holiday better :)

    As for snow, I'm so over it. SO OVER IT!

  15. Ahhh..fruit salad! Makes me think of summer! Sounds wonderful.

    Glad you're feeling better :)

  16. We are supposed to get up to nine inches of snow today, UGH! I have an early dentist appointment tomorrow and I'm so angry.

    I read your question on my blog yesterday and will be answering it on tomorrow night's post. Let's just say the banana you ate was a great idea!

    Have a nice day Mari :)
