In The Closet…

I have an addiction..I do it at least once a day and sometimes even 2 to 3 times. It is the first thing I do in the morning and sometimes the last thing I do right before I go to sleep. I have become a slave to this and it is time to stop the madness….what IS this addiction??? Weighing myself! Hi, my name is Mariette and I am addicted to the scale….(((((HI MARIETTE))))

I decided to stop the addiction and only weigh myself twice a month so for now the scale is in my closet until the 15th of the month. I think this will be good for me =) How many times do you weigh yourself? Are you also addicted to the scale?

Eats and Workouts

I have been consuming a lot of this…Theraflu


Since my dad forgot that I live alone and overdid it with the produce, I have to put everything to good use before it spoils. I decided to make a fruit salad ayer with Honey Oikos, Honey, Vanilla Extract, Apple, Tangerine, Pear, and Grapes…

Note to self: Tangerines have seeds in them! lol. This tasted pretty good but I have to play around with the ingredients. I think next time I will make it with Cool Whip and Cream Cheese….or sweet condensed milk. Do you have any creamy fruit salad recipes????

For din din I had Mexican Salad with Lettuce, Homemade Beans and Guacamole, Reduced Fat Sour Cream, Salsa, and 2% Mexican Blend Cheese.


And Fruit Salad for dessert



This morning I woke up congested and weak but still wanted to workout so I did Jillian’s Wii Game and burned 301 Calories in 44 minutes.

I then went downstairs to meet my sister and niece and clean off my car. Even though my dad cleaned it ayer, I was greeted with this…


It took me over an hour to clean and shovel all around it; I wore my HR Monitor and I burned 395 Calories! Score.

Homefries took some pictures while I shoveled…

All I wanted to do after that was warm up with a (warm) Yogurt Mess and Coffee…


I need a nap…I just have to find a way to make my niece fall asleep too lol…we are two sick chicas…

My niece is too cute, she just wrote this on my dry erase board:

“I love my titi because she is the strongest girl in the world and she is healthy. I love her so much”

haha I love it!

Have a great day!
