Thank Goodness It’s (Good) Friday!!!!!!! It is such an amazing day in NYC! The type of day where you just want to go outside and feel the warm sun on your skin.

Eats & Workouts

Thursday Morning for Breakfast I made myself Sweet Eggs with Egg Whites, Raspberry SF Preserves, Cinnamon, Splenda, Light Laughing Cow French Onion Wedge, and Vanilla Extract and put it in a Low Carb Wrap.


And for Lunch I had a Green Monster with Spinach, Banana, Strawberries, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Light Muscle Milk and to switch things up, I decided to use Soy Light Chocolate Milk and OMG this was so good! It was so creamy and tasty.


Later in the afternoon I went to GNC (with my family) to pick up some vitamins and a tub of Light Chocolate Muscle  Milk and then went to Trader Joe’s and stocked up on so many goodies! I love you TJ!


We also went to an Italian Bakery and I brought some Rainbow Cookies…if you have been a follower of my blog; you know how much I looooooooove these! They even had a a rainbow cake! I want my family to get this for my 30th birthday =) *******hint hint hint******


For Din Din I made a Veggie Wrap and the star of the show was this bottle of Pesto Sauce


First I sautéed some Mushrooms and Brussels in EVOO 


And then I put it in a low carb Wrap with Pesto Sauce…yuuuums!



For dessert I FINALLY tried April’s Protein Cake! I made mine with 1 scoop of Chocolate Light Muscle Milk, Egg Whites, Baking Powder, Applesauce, Splenda and then Topped it with SF Raspberry Preserves. I LOVE YOU APRIL FOR BRINING THIS INTO MY LIFE!!!!!!!!



This morning I woke up and just had to get out of the house! I fueled up with some Silk Light Chocolate Soy Milk, put on my workout gear and was ready to GO GO GO! I walked 1.3 miles to the Park and then Jogged around the track for 2 Miles and then walked back home another 1.3 miles and enjoyed a nice loooooooong foam roller stretch! (Burned 1089 Calories). It is so gorgeous today! I am heading to my mom’s house later and can’t wait for another great walk!

For Breakfast I made myself another Green Monster, exactly like the one I made ayer

    So you add vanilla extract to your wrap?!?! You are so clever!! I bet it added a nice taste, very unique taste.

  20. I have to try this green monster shake. Never had it, but I do agree that soy milk adds incredible texture to shakes. I'm definitely a convert. Enjoy the rest of your Easter weekend chica. We've been blessed with yet another beautiful day :)

    You are hardcore with all this walking! Are you planning on getting another car?

  22. Mmmmm! I have to figure out a way to get some of those rainbow cookies.

    I'm loving all the exercise and the Happy Mari cheer!

    Hope you had a fabulous holiday with the familia!

  23. I agree about flowers, I have a Easter lilly plant in my dining room now and the sight and smell of it definitely lift my mood :)

    I have been doing green monsters about three times a week now which is more than usual for me! I love making new combinations -- I need to get some chocolate soymilk next, lol.
