What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day??????


I had such a great time ayer at Cheesecake Factory for my mommy’s birthday (thank you for all the fabulous bday wishes for mi mama)

I started with 2 Cheese Quesadilla Pieces with Sour Cream, Guacamole, and Salsa


And for my main course I got the Thai Noodle Salad with Asian Noodles, Mango, Mixed Greens, Carrots, Tomatoes, Peanuts, and Grilled Shrimp instead of Chicken.


THIS WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!! My eye lit up when I took the first bite lol…It was a pretty big portion so I saved 1/2 for din din tonight.

I REALLY wanted dessert but I didn’t want all those calories, do you know that the slice that I wanted was 1050 CALORIES!!!! GASP

Instead my sister and I split the Kahlua Cocoa Coffee Cheesecake which was 860 Calories for the entire slice


Here are some pictures from last night

My Hermana, niece, and my sister’s boyfriend.


My mom and me


They had a Carousel in the Mall which home fries loved!



This morning I woke up at 6:15 and had 1/2 a Banana


And then headed to the park for a workout; Walk to Park 1.2 Miles, Jog in Trails 2.6 Miles, Walk back home and Stretch….810 Calories in 1 hour and 25 minutes…

For Breakfast I had Caramel Oikos with the other 1/2 of the Banana, and a Chocolate and Banana Protein Muffin


And my usual Cafe con Leche


I hope everyone has a great day! Do something special to celebrate Earth Day…hmmm maybe don’t eat meat today or plant a flower, OR leave your car at home while you run errands =)



  1. hey girl!! love the CCF and that meal looks delish! I like that they can accomodate the meal to whatever changes you make! I alawys add something, or take something away or 'nix' the butter when I order from there, and they always can do it!!

  9. Happy Earth Day to you too! A run at the park and a green monster sounds perfect for today, and everyday!

  10. Cheesecake Factory always looks so good- did you go to NJ or is there one in NY? Glad you had fun! I love the pics of the park, btw...embrace Earth Day!

    I am sitting in the dark and haven't eaten meat today :)

    Making protein muffins tomorrow- woo woo!

  11. That park looks so pretty! Cheesecake factory is awesome :-)

  12. ooh the thai noodle salad looks really good! I want to try it with shrimp.

    That cheesecake looks delicious! Yum.

    Home fries is too cute, I wish I was young again! hahaha

    Nice calorie burn today girl! Whoohoo. I need to work out soon!

    For Earth Day I am going to take a shorter shower after my workout! Save some water.

  13. OMG CHEESECAKE! The noodle salad looks fabulous and bigger than ever. Happy Earth Day! I made a point to not grab a water bottle and just use tap with a glass. I have used two paper cups though for tea. I also recycled my salad container, which is a daily thing anyway!

  14. Ah, your park is gorgeous! I wish I could run there, too.

    Hm, I recycled today. Hee hee....and I'll go hug a tree today too? ;-)

  15. That salad looks so good! I haven't done anything to celebrate earth day...hmm...

  16. LOVE The Cheesecake Factory. We have a gift certificate but I've been putting off going because their portions are HUGE and I KNOW I will overeat!

  17. You know what I did for Earth Day? I took the first part of my two day final. Lovely.

    that cheesecake looks awesome. My favorite cheesecake factory menu item is the navajo sandwich...the frybread is dreamy.

  18. Hey there! Just came across your blog. I live in NYC also : )

  19. Aww you are so adorable!! I love that salad-it looks so good!

  20. Fabulous food pictures. I really liked how that chocolate cookie dough with strawberries looked in your previous post. That looked good!

    And of course the cheesecake looked good too!

  21. Yummy good choices, that thai dish looks to die for!! And how does your mom look so young? Not fair!!

    The pic of you with your smoothie is soooo adorable!

  22. YES! The verde converse won! Now that I'm catching up, can I tell you how awesome your guns look in the first picture? Are you flexing???

    I sat on my bootay at work for earth day:)

  23. Happy belated Earth Day! :) I like to celebrate everyday anyway-- reuse grocery bags and walk to the store.

  24. Aww what a cute family!! I am so jealous of the calorie counts on menus in NY, I could see it helping me make better choices all of the time!

  25. I completely missed earth day, but it was cancelled in the UK, we were under an "ash cloud". :)

    So no sneaky burgers recently, I am MOST impressed sister Mari, I even get tired and hungry, reading about all your exercise!

    P.S. you look alot like your mother, much more so than I do. lol.

  26. P.P.S. Do the chesecake factory still sell the "Tons of Fun Burger", that used to be my favourite.

    It was held together with skewers, although it wasn't very calorific for me, as I always used to drop half of it on the floor, trying to eat the thing. :D
