The Yum Factor…

Hello loves! Sorry for being MIA! I have not had a chance to post in a couple of days because I have been going and going. It’s funny, you would think that now since I don’t have a full time job, I would have more to time to post but it has been just the opposite.

I don’t want to bore you with all the details and endless pictures of eats so instead I am going show you the Yum Factor of some of my food highlights on a scale of 1 to 5

Rudi’s English Muffin sammie with Salt and Vinegar Popchips..5!!!!!


Luna Caramel Nut Brownie…if you are a Chocolate lover then this would be a 5 but it was way too much chocolate for me so I gave it a 2 and the rest of the box to my sister, whom loves it.

Chinese Takeout; House Special Fried Rice with Szechuan Shrimp and Mixed veggies….definitely a 5 lol. My tummy would give this a 1 lol.


The Lite Choice Almond Butter Bar…I loved this bar! an Almond Butter fan would love this and would give it a 5.


Chobani Pomegranate Yogurt; I enjoyed this Yogurt but did not like the seeds at the bottom. It should say Fruit AND Seeds at the bottom. Flavor is a 4 and texture is a 2.


OIAJ… Do I even have to rate this?


Luna Lemon Zest Bar…I freaking love this bar! it gets a 10 ha


Calamari and Shrimp in Marinara Sauce sauce from my fave Italian Restaurant, Lenny’s. Ya’ll know this is my fave dish ever so of course it gets a 5.


And the Mozzarella Sticks get a 3.5. DSCN4925

Rudi’s Honey Sweet Wheat Bagel with Reduced Fat Cream Cheese…5! DSCN4927

I am off to workout before I head out to my friends house and then training my client tonight. I promise to catch up on blogs tonight when I get home.

Oh before I go, I started week 3 of C25K and I am running at 6-6.3 =). Ayer I did the program, and then continued to run until I hit a 5k and so far I can do it in 40 minutes.



  1. Wow very impressed with the running! Good job! I agree with your ratings. Love the Rudi's bagel and TLC bar of course!

  2. I agree with your ratings- except the Luna. Too much chocolate is a thought I can't comprehend :P

  3. im so proud of you and a little upset with myself at the same time!

    Damn bronchitis!

    and naughty girl with all those evil but nommy eats... but you deserve a lil treat!
    i tried the peanut butter bar- didnt love it. looking forward to some soft serve when my cough goes away

  4. WTG with the running!!! Yummy eats over the last few days. The calamari looked sooo good!

  5. That almond butter bar looks yummy. Yay for some good running!

  6. Great job on the running! That is so exciting!

  7. Congrats on the running!!

    Love your "yum ratings!" I think the chinese takeout looks especially yummy!
    <3 jess

  8. haha what a fabulous idea! yum factor scale!! I am giong to do that in one of my posts! so glad you like the lemon zest luna I have it in my bag now to be eaten this week! can't wait :)

    those mozz sticks look so freakin good right now!!!!!

    and the lite choice bar looks amazing as well!!

  9. I think you should rate all your food all the time! I loved scrolling down and thinking "I bet she'll give this a BLANK". Kind of a fun game. :)

  10. Great job running!
    Not a fan of that Luna, but I agree with your other pics ;)

  11. You and I are too much alike! Never seen the Pom Chobani. Will have to look for it. I know what you mean about being busy without a full time job, where does the time go?!

  12. At least you have been eating good food on your break!

    Awesome job on your running- you are going to bypass my speed and endurance by your next run!

  13. Love how you've rated all your food. Awesome job with the running! You are gonna rock that race!

  14. Sounds like you've been incredibly busy. Hopefully that's a good thing and that means you are getting some new resumes filled out? Either way, I'm glad you're enjoying life!

    Now as your RD I have to say it's going to be hard to keep weight off when you eat out so much, but you know this. The bottom line is that in today's society, eating out can only be an occasional thing, or else it's literally impossible to lose weight. Sad, bad true. The food all looks yummy though, and I'm glad you had a great weekend.

    Have a good night Mari. Oh, and I love your new rating system. You didn't used to do that..right?!

  15. I agree that those Luna bars are way too chocolatey and I loooove chocolate. My favorite Luna is the smores :)

  16. I am CRAVING Chinese and Indian food! That take-out looks TO DIE FOR!!! You've been missed! I think it's cute you're so busy!

  17. haha LOVE the ratings!! AGREED. i had those pop chips today too!

  18. Rudi's=Bliss!

    Congrats on the run! I am so proud of you :)

  19. ahah no need to rate the most delicious known to man kind. love me some oats in a jar!!

    ahh chinese take out is one of my favorite meals!! it always just taste so good.

  20. I love calamari! It's so good!

  21. You are doing so great! I can't wait until you run a 5K :)

  22. You are such a rockstar with the 6.3!!! we are definitely going to rock our 5k's!

    That almond butter bar looks sooo delish.
