I Was Attacked…

Before I get into what happened, let’s do a brief recap. The last time we chatted it was Friday morning…for lunch I ordered a slice of Pizza with Mushrooms, Broccoli, and Spinach with 3 Garlic Knots.


Din Din was my famous Spicy PB Veggie and Tofu Stir-Fry.


And Protein Cookie Dough for Dessert



Saturday morning I worked in the gym and had a Rudi’s English Muffin with Reduced Fat Cream Cheese and Honey. I know this is a weird combo but it tasted really good.


After work I ran to CVS to get some Airborne because I was feeling like shit and this is where the attack happened. It was a quiet attack, I didn’t even see it coming. I actually brought the culprit to my home and treated him like a friend but he was no friend of mine…

But before I was attacked, I made myself a Ham and Swiss Sammie with Ketchup and Salt and Vinegar Popchips on the side.


I felt him staring at me while I was eating, it felt like fire…he was calling me over “Maaariette come here”.  I tried to resist it but I had no power over him…


If you see this guy coming near you, Close the door! and shut the lights off because before you know it…you will have bowls and BOWLS of it!


I snacked on this box alllllll day and finished it! 13 servings at 130 Calories Per Serving…you do the math. Oh and let us NOT forget the FF milk that I paired it with. Bad Bad Mari…

I also snacked on some of these…


I obviously felt like crap and just wanted to loaf on the couch but the guilt was taking over and I managed to do 45 minutes of Plyometrics, Upper Body, and Kettlebell and burned 317 Calories.

Will there ever be a time when I don’t binge????


This morning all I could think about was going to the gym and sweating my ass off. I went with Mo and my sis which is always fun. I started week 4 of C25K and my legs were on fire but I got through it, followed by 5 minutes of incline 10, Captain Chair, Lower and Upper Body Strength Training and burned 701 Calories.

For Breakfast I had Oikos Honey Yogurt with a small Banana, and PB with my usual coffee.


Totally unrelated: If anyone from Oikos is reading this, can you please please please ship some Caramel Oikos to Keyfood in Queens! I want to try it like WOAH! lol

My goal is to only eat 1200 calories today and try to undo the damage that I caused ayer…

I hope everyone is enjoying their Super Bowl Sunday…I don’t plan to go to any parties today because I don’t trust myself around food lol. Plus I would rather watch Lifetime haha

Have a great day!



  1. cute post! I was all worried about you for a quick second! :)

  2. I can't even buy Honey Bunches of Oats...that cereal is like crack cocaine for me! I could eat a whole box in a day, too! I'm just glad you didn't get "seriously" attacked...I was worried!

    Glad you liked Lily. I thought it was cute :) ...but I'm a lil biased :)

  3. Dang, you nearly gave me a heart attack there! DON'T beat yourself up- you aren't the first innocent victim Honey Bunches of Oats has pounced on ;)

    In all seriousness. You are human. This happens. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off- and start all over again. You've been working SO hard with your goals- don't let one slip discount all the awesome days you have had.

  4. I have polished off a whole box of cereal in a day, don't beat yourself up over it!! You always work out so hard and already are back on track :-)

  5. You had me scared for a bit! I can't tell you how many times I've binged on Honey Bunches of Oats. My roommate buys it and I seriously can't keep my hands off of it. Glad you got to the gym after at least! I know how frustrating it is!

  6. aww girl dont beat yourself up! shoot-we all have days like that. tomorrow is a new day girl!
    your eats always look GREAT to me!

  7. Such a funny post... I wouldn't mind a slice of that pizza.... Except I would have probably eaten the whole pie... Looks so good!!!

  8. LOL Mari! You had me scared! I can't ever have that cereal in the house because I will eat it all in one day!!!

    I started Week 4 today too. I struggled through it, my legs were feeling so sore and tired. Hopefully Day 2 of Week 4 will be a little easier for me.

  9. omgoodness you are too funny!!! I love that cereal!


  11. That pizza looks amazing! So in the mood for pizza now. And agreed, I can't find the caramel Oikos either!

  12. You scared me, girl!! PHEW! I was so worried!
    <3 jess

  13. I was really scared for a second.

    I really don't like Honey Bunches of Oats..LOL! Now if those were Lucky Charms we would have a different story.

    I would love gym time with you and Mo. Maybe next time I am there.

  14. As much as binges really suc, and make you feel like crap, it's not a good idea to put a limit on your calories the following day. Instead, tell yourself that you will eat intuitively and only eat if you are hungry. Innevitably you will eat few calories anyway, and you won't even have to think about it! Also, the binge could have been worse, I mean, think fries and a big mac. I'm looking on the bright side for you :)

    Enjoy your day Mari, and don't beat yourself up.

  15. That cereal is dangerous, I agree! Try not to be so hard on yourself. We've all done it. Today is a new day!

  16. mmm what delicious food you have here! I still have taht lemon zest luna in my bag and I know you love it so i cant awit to try it!!

    garlic knots?! holy yum! i havent had those in forever!!

    honey bunches of oats-DANGER ZONE!! I could go through a whole box with ease!!!

    have a great day!

  17. You scared me! I'm glad you're safe. I'm sorry about the binge. It will even out today though. Just brush it off :)

  18. Haha, loving your blog already, even just reading this entry. I am such a fiend for "healthy" dry cereals, ie. I snack out of the box and little bowls all day and realize I ate the whole thing... oops!

  19. I will take the pizza, pass the tofu, fo! like you say :) hee hee!

    I LOVEEEE honey bunches of oats. nena please, with all the working out you do, ya needs to stop beating yourself up! :)


  20. Hope you recovered since this post! I love cereal but can't keep the good ones at home! Something about them makes me go crazy! But you did have the best kind! Pick yourself up and show the monster who's boss!

  21. Now I remember why I can't keep cereal or tortilla chips in the house! I think we all do this every once in a while, so don't guilt yourself over it. Accept it and move on :)
