Me + Bok Choy = LoVe

ok so I have to admit, up until yesterday I had no idea what this even was.

Passed this by soooooooooooooo many times at the supermarket, not even giving it a second glance.
Well, low and behold I had a recipe that called for it. I was like.. OMG what can I put in its place, I dont wanna eat that.. GROSS!!

With great hesitation and serious doubts I bought some....I mean GREAT hesitation!! lol

So the stare down began...

ok so I had to start cooking, the tummy was speaking to me.... :)

So I had to go on the internet to see how cut this green monster up....

Well, basically I chopped it like a head cabbage, taking off the bottom.

I dived into the recipe and got to cookin... ok so... everything is smellin mmm mmmm good!!

I added the red wine vinegar and the oyster sauce mixture and poof it was pretty much done.

ok people... let me just say...never judge a book by its cover, never judge a vege by its name etc etc etc blah blah blah... This was one of the most amazing meals I have had in a long time!!! So much flavor and a bit of spice from the red pepper flakes.. oh yeah baby!!

and guess what .. this is from the Eat Clean Recipes.. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Having leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

I will posting the recipe under the tab up top that says.. On My Plate!! Enjoy!

Month of January Workout Minutes - 1920

Stanky Bras

yes, lol you read that right!!

ok now i know we all sweat when we work out, but cmon!!

What is wrong with my bras?

Do you ever have that problem, where you wear your new bra or even a sports bra a few times when working out and then all of the sudden it reeks!

These stanky ass bras smell like they have drug across a mens locker room floor.


I wash it .... I wear it .... I gag!

soooo... I wash it... I bleach it... I wear it... I gag!!!

I seriously think the sweat is somehow embedded into the mere fibers of this

over the shoulder booby holder.

The minute I start to even faintly perspire.. BAM smells once again like I have

been laying in a pool of nasty sweat.

So then... dancing my ass off there in Zumba.. makes me wonder.. god if i can smell it, who else

Soooooooooooooo Miss Stanky Bra.. if you cant just hang out and smell decent... YOU MUST GO!


Who else has this problem... I know I am not alone..

you know who you are... lol

Do you too have stanky gym clothes...

Well, I must say I kicked butt today.... or did my workouts kick my butt!!??
Either way it was a fantastic day!!

Started with ZUMBA at 4.... 1 hour

then Quick Fit and 5.... 30 minutes

Followed by Rythmix at 6:30.... 1 hour


I will say Mary still kicks my A** in Quick Fit.. Its a tough class,

but I am determined to keep up and finish hard!

I had a little breather from 5:30 to 6:30 so I ran to McDonalds.. ( i know, I know)

I was going to get a snack wrap.. just something to give me a lil energy for Rythmix class.

Well, I see they had oatmeal with fruit.

So I got it and a small oj!

Well, it gave me tons of energy, but my god!!

290 calories, 32 grams of sugar. YIKES!!

I have to say it was really super good, but dont know if I will have it again.

Needless to say I was high gear for my dance class. Nothing was going to slow me down, I only paused for water twice. I was on fiyah!! lol
Julie(Rythmix Instructor) had me wear her heart rate monitor.

It also measures the calories you burn. Get this people... I burned a wopping 665 calories during my 1 hour class. Thats not even including Zumba and Quick Fit.

I seriously need to get one of these !

They typically cost around 100.00 - Great investment if you ask me!! :)

Game ON!

Its on!

I have had enough of this ho hum kinda attitude!

This girl needs to pick up the energy a few notches!!

Enough of the.. yeah I will exercise later BS!!!

Enough of the ... well, if I eat this today I will get serious tomorrow!!!!


I am done. I am fed up with myself. Tired of my excuses.

I can certainly talk the talk... now lets see if this girl can move her fat butt and do what she needs to do and walk the walk.

I am going thru my house once again with a garbage bag and throwing out allllllllllllllllllll the bad!

Replacing it with only things I should be putting into this body.

I am dragging out all of my low fat -no fat- I dont wanna be fat cookbooks and I am going to PLAN!!

Thats right Rox, you heard me, PLAN PLAN PLAN.

Your so good at it, that I am going to follow your lead. :)

The whole food thing is holding me back. So I have got to get this under control.

I am sick of looking at back fat, leg fat, butt fat, arm fat, tummy fat.

Time to get rid of it all and what I put in my mouth is the sure fire way. (Along with my workouts ofcourse!!

So wish me luck my lovely followers, I'll post tomorrow on the results of my planning!Photobucket
