Hey Hey Hey! I hope you guys are having a fabulous evening…it is pouring out here but that won’t bring me down lol.

Eats and Workouts

Last night for dindin I made my fabulous Stir Fry with Brussels, Mushrooms, Tofu, Szechuan Hot Sauce, Peanut Butter, Teriyaki Sauce, and Red Pepper Flakes.


And for dessert I had Chobani Honey Yogurt with Peanut Butter


Before bed I did some more stretches with my Foam Roller.


This morning I had OIAJ! Do you guys watch American Idol? Well I don’t but I know that song “Pants on the ground. pants on the ground. Looking like a fool with your pants on the ground” and for some reason I made my own version “Oats in a JAR. Oats in a JAR. Look at Mari eating her Oats in the JAR” haha. Feel free to sing this song while you enjoy your OIAJ!


I threw in 1/2 a Banana and had my cafe con leche on the side…perfect way to start the day!

For Lunch I had Homemade Roman Beans with Avocado Slices, Salsa, and 2% Colby and Monterey Cheese in a Low Carb Wrap.


Later in the evening, I went to the gym with my sister. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical, 25 minutes of upper and lower body toning, 5 minutes of cool down on bike, and 5 minutes of stretching and burned a total of 609 Calories.

After the gym, I went to my mom’s house and picked up a Homedics Footbath. I gave this to HER a couple of years back and she never really used it so she gave it back and I am NOT complaining lol. I poured in some hot water with Epsom Salt and OooooMG this felt so amazing! I enjoyed it for about an hour…


While I drank my Green Monster with frozen Spinach, frozen Strawberries, Chocolate Light Muscle Milk, Peanut Butter, and Splenda


This was a perfect way to end the night.

I am off to do some stretches on my Foam Roller and then hit the sack..have a great night loves!



  1. ahh a foot spa sounds divine right now! i alwayyyys put the plug in the tub when i shower, so that it soaks my feet, but the shower with the tub still isn't fixed-my feet miss their soak!

  2. NY really isn't too far from's definitely pouring hear as well! That foot spa sounds so nice! Strangely, I'm a huge foot massage person hah.

  3. Guess who got a new blender today??? Gonna try to get back on track with the GMs. Although this new blender is loud and I'm afraid my neighbors will yell at me. I'll let you know how it goes. =)

  4. ahhh love your OIAJ!! you know that makes me HAPPY HAPPY!

  5. I need a foam roller right about now - this jack@$$ plowed me over in my hockey game last night. I swear my uterus is tilted now. And I have a fat, blue bruise to show off for a few weeks, I'm sure. Miss Lily ate my foam roller :(

  6. LOL. I laughed out loud. LIterally at your OIAJ song.

    I could so use a foot spa. Or just a spa in general. For any part of my body.

    Loving the PB stir fry! ALways and forever.

  7. I so need to get a good soak in after all the walking I did in the city. I was just thinking about oats in a jar. Your song is too cute :)

  8. hahahh.. nice OIAJ song! i hate OIAJ. but i love your song. i need one of those foot spas! so nice. i had my GM a bit ago! yum :)

  9. lol I love the OIAJ song Mari. lol lol It's stuck in my head right now!!!!

    I want a foot spa now. I should look into it. I totally deserve it, right?! hahah

  10. Ha! Thank goodness I don't know the song...or I'll probably have it stuck in my head right now.

  11. haha PANTS ON THE GROUND! love that...there is a remix of it that you can buy on itunes, if you can believe that! its so funny, good beat too!

    that ice bath looks painful, but I know its SO helpful!!

    yayaya you are loving the foam roller :)

  12. That's hilarious! I actually sing a version of that song from SNL "D*&% in a box" only "it's my oats in a jar..." lol.

    That foot bath sounds lovely!

  13. LOL I love the song you altered the lyrics too! I'll think of you every time I see OIAJ in the blog world! haha

  15. Okay now I see your blog haha. I want that foot spa!

  16. im getting back into my fitness routine! havent hit the gym yet... but i am on my way! :-)

    love the foot spa! I want one!

  17. Foot spa sounds so good right now- I have wanted one of those since I was about 3 years old!

    Haha... I am glad I am not the only one who sings OIAJ to the "pants on the ground" song...and ever since I first heard it, I get a very strong urge to sing it to guys who rock the hanging-jeans look. Hehe. One daymy big mouth is gonna get me in trouble!

  18. omgosh i want that foot bath! do you use a heart rate monitor or go by what the machines say?

    i personally LOVE idol but this season is kind of a bust.

  19. Jealous of...

    your dinner!
    your OIAJ!
    and your foot bath!

    I could really use all of the above right now :)

  20. I can just imagine how pruney your feet were when you took them out of that bath, after an hour! And I bet you were sitting there singing, "Oats in ajar, oats in a jar....." ha! I love it.
