What the Heezy?

Before I even begin, I have a question…are you guys having problems viewing my blog from your offices? Two people told me that my blog has been blocked from their jobs for pornographic material! What the Heezy? the only porn on this site is food porn! lol…shoot now I am scared of even using that word on my posts…
I don’t know what is going on with me but I have had a lingering headache for the past 2 days…I remember one time, I had a headache for almost 2 weeks and had to go to a Chiro to “crack” me so it could go bye bye…Let’s hope this one goes away on its own.
Eats and Workouts
Ayer for lunch I made myself General Tsao Tofu (w/ Mushrooms and Brussels) with Trader Joe’s sauce…
And paired it with a Veggie Egg Roll from TJ’s and a little bit of Duck sauce
I turned into bettyf*ckingcrocker ayer and ended up making Chocolate Apple and Cinnamon Protein Muffins with Raisins AND I perfected my Chocolate and Banana Protein Muffins with Chocolate Chips!
Chocolate and Banana Protein Muffins with Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup of Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup of Oat Bran
2 Ripe Bananas
1/2 cup of Apple Sauce
3 TBSP Chocolate Morsels
3 scoops of Chocolate Light Muscle Milk
1/3 cup of Egg Whites
6 Packets of Splenda
1.5 TSP Baking Powder
.5 TSP Baking Soda
Bake at 350 for 20 – 25 minutes
Makes 7 and is165 Calories per muffin,

Both Batches came out great! (I had one of each)
For din din I made myself a Calzone with TJ’s WW Dough, Part Skim Mozzarella, Reduced Fat Parm, and TJ’s Pesto Sauce…I was pretty impressed by how yummy this turned out…
This morning I had a new first..YIAJ!!!!!! Oikos Caramel Yogurt with a Banana and Chocolate Protein Muffin in a PB Jar!!!!
With a yummy cup of Cafe con Leche!  DSCN6428
After I digested, I did a Kettlebell DVD with a 10lb Kettlebell and then did 15 minutes of abs and burned 452 Calories.
I studied for the rest of the afternoon and enjoyed a Chocolate, Cinnamon, and Apple Protein Muffin…
For Lunch I had the final Green Monster of the Challenge!!!! It tasted amazing! Spinach, Banana, Strawberries, 1 scoop of Chocolate Light Muscle Milk, Silk Light Chocolate Soy Milk, and Splenda.
Some of you guys asked me, if I felt any different since I started the Challenge… and honestly I feel great! I have a lot more energy when I have them… usually after lunch I am sluggish but whenever I had a GM, it was an instant pick me up! Just because the challenge is over, doesn’t mean I will stop having these.
For din din I wanted to try a new Frozen Dish; Trader Joe’s Roasted Vegetable and Multi Grain Lasagna.
Usually the picture on the box is far prettier than what is actually in the box but this wasn’t so ugly, it actually looked pretty tasty….
I wanted to cook it in the oven but it said for best results, heat it up in the microwave…it looked even better once it was cooked… DSCN6448 DSCN6451
There are 4 servings in the tray but I made it into three (each one was 347 Calories). If you are in TJ’s, I definitely recommend this!
For dessert I had Yoplait Light Fat Free Orange Creme (sorry Gina, I brought these before our talk)
I thought this was the end of my eats for the day but I got really REALLY hungry after 7ish and had 3 bowls of Peanut Butter Puffins in FF Milk..not the best choice but for some reason, the day AFTER I have a hard workout, I get famished! I COULD have lied and said I had 1 bowl or some crap like that…but this blog is about honesty and sometimes I happen to fall into a box of Cereal! I am not perfect…I am a work in progress =)
I am off to bed…I want to head to the park at 6:30 for an early morning run…Have a great night loves!


  1. I am to the point where I cannot eat just one (or two...) bowls of cereal. It's neverending, I think I need to NOT keep cereal in my house. Way to go on the GM challenge!

  2. WAHAHA! I can't believe you blog is banned for pornographic materials? Prbably just food porn, huh? And bc you are just too damn sexy! ;-)

  3. Those calazones sound great. I haven't tried Trader Joe's lasagna before, but it looks good.

  4. Those calazones sound great. I haven't tried Trader Joe's lasagna before, but it looks good.

  5. I dont read blogger blogs at work because they always give me pop ups :(
    I'm the same way with the hungry day after I exercise a lot. I guess it's our bodies way of saying it needs so more food!
    That calzone looks amazing!

  6. Honesty is key. As such. I have to be honest. You are just too sexy for office computers apparently. Sophia and I agree :P

    You are a baking goddess now! I'm so glad you perfected those.

  7. HEY GIRL!!
    haha i can never eat ONE bowl of cereal! its soo hard!! love YO eats! was YIAJ better than OIAJ!?!

  8. Your food porn is just too much for the office!

  9. PORN!? that's too funny. I don't have an office, so I can't say whether you are blocked. I'm laughing though, sorry :)

    Ok so about your diet, I notice a few things. Still, I want to see more fresh fruits and veggies. Also, how much sodium is in that TJs meal? And is the main ingredient whole grain wheat? Look at the ingredients. Also, the yogurt is fine, I have no problems with it, I just prefer you get the plain and add fresh fruit :) Just trying to help!

  10. I don't have any problems but my work doesn't block anything. There's probably not much you could do about it sounds like those people are just going to have to view it from home.

    Good for you for being honest! I can't keep cereal in the house for that reason ;-)

    Thanks for your comment on my post, love you too!!!

  11. Hah .. glad that u reached perfection with your muffins by adding choco chips! And although I'm trying to eat less these days ... I've also started hitting the Nintendo Wii Fit everyday these days .. and that just makes me hungrier!! Damn. So I won't judge u on eating on those 3 bowls of cereal!

  12. love you for your honesty! no one is here to judge you its your blog, so frankly you could lie and no one would knwo! but good for you! its one way to stay accountable too!

    meals are looking good! thsoe muffins--YUM! must make those soon!!!

    great idea making a calzone with the WW dough!! you are so darn creative, mari!

  13. Congrats on finishing the challenge!! I haven't had any problems viewing your blog at work.

  14. I haven't had any problems viewing your blog or any of the other porn sites I check at work ;)

  15. Your website is blocked at my work too! So annoying because I love to read blogs at work ;-)

  16. Um, porn? Guilty as charged, Mari! I want that calzone right now. And that stir-fry and egg roll. And the muffins...hey, can we just trade lives for a while?!

    Have a good run!

  17. Damn, I was at the gym so i couldnt smell these babies bakin! they look fluffier! better save me one!

    I love the calzone. looks really good! I have some dough in the freezer...might have to have a pesto pizza one of these nights~

  18. yes ... food porn it is. I feel so violated after reading your blog (and I like it), that's why I come back to read more. It's practically sado-machist. LOL...

  19. You ARE bettyeffingcrocker!...and I love getting food-horny after reading your blog. Ha!

  20. I have no problems seeing your blog on my lunch break!

    I cannot be trusted with peanut butter puffins in my house - I just eat them straight out of the box!

  21. LOL what the heck? hahahaha

    your calzone looks really good! yum pesto.

    Ooh I've been wanting to try kettlebells. I should buy some.

  22. You make me sooo sad that I don't live near a Trader Joe's. UGH! Lucky girl. Everything looks delish!

  23. so happy to see you run so much, I on the other hand....

    that Trader Joe's lasagna looks WOW!

    pornographic material!?

    food porn maybe LOL!

  24. I fell into four or five bowls of cereals today. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one.

    I told my husband today that there must be something in milk and cereal that is addicting because that is just too weird for me to just want more and more of cereal. I said, "now would I eat bowl after bowl of oatmeal?" not likely...but there's something about cereal.

    I think it's a conspiracy, Namaste. Ha!

    Yes, that calzone does look wonderful and so do those muffins.

  25. No trouble physically seeing your blog, but I'm no longer allowed on the nets- it's nuts. I'll email you!

    I'm loving the calzones, muffins, and your dang OIAJ!
    Hope I'll talk to you soon amiga! Take care!

  26. I get headaches all the freakin time! Two things help, my yoga tune up therapy balls and allergy drugs. I've learned that my allergies cause headaches, which means I have a constant headache right now due to our high pollen counts.
