Peanut Butter (Apple) Time

I haven't had time to cook anything worth putting up here this week. I've been mostly just eating apples like my name was Johnny Appleseed and downing protein shakes to keep my bootie hopping at the gym and trying hard to stay away from the cheesecake in the fridge. I did, however want to spotlight how Uh-mazing apple and peanut butter is. It has been extra special to me these past couple weeks in the morning while on the run or lat eat night when I really just want to down a pint of Ben and Jerry's. Last night I added raisins into the mix and OMFG was that delicious.

I must be committed when I'm so IITGI that I'm thinking God for the invention of raisins and for the light bulb that went off in my head to add it into the mix.

So thank you apples. Thank you peanut butter. Thank you raisins. You make me like being and eating healthy so much more.


In other thoughts I have some comments to the general public in light of my new found gym addiction.

To the girl with 3% body fat on the next elliptical machine:
Umm yeah don't give me that look that says "eat cake much" when I get on the machine two machines down from you. Yes I ate cake much, that is why I'm at the gym, and no not everyone has just 3% body fat...obviously I don't, that's why I'm sweating like a fat kid at summer camp two machines down from you!

To my fellow classmates:
I just came from the gym. Yes I know I smell. Yes I've been wearing these gym shorts for two days now. Yes I own a hair dryer and make-up but I'm not dating you, so no I'm not gonna use em right now and, yes I'm gonna come looking like hell to class. Sorry.

To Jillian Michaels:
So I bought your yoga DVD looking for something a little more relaxing than the 30 Day Shred but I should have know that with your face on the cover you were gonna turn yoga into something where you want to say "F*** This!" and not "Yamaste"
ps. I still hurt (in places I didn't know existed)

Hope you all have a fantastic Wednesday!

Apples have been my best friend while dieting/exercising too. They're one of the few healthy things with a real TASTE. ;)

Also, about the note to your classmates, I just might steal a couple of those lines and yell them at the sorority chicks that who act like girls w/out makeup are a disease. They won't know what hit em.

Anyhow, you go girl! :)

Kara said...

Hahahaha oh Mari those last few parts were the best. I HATE those bobbing ponytailed girls who can go 2352 hours on the elliptical without breaking a sweat, meanwhile I'm compiling boobsweat like it's a competition. Oh, the gym.

Apples and peanut butter is one of my FAVE snacks. I gotta add raisins next! Genius!
