R & R {MIMM #6}

There’s a bug goin’ around! My mom was sick last week, and now my brother and I are feeling a little bit under the weather. A lot of my dance friends have also been sick, and our contact through dancing probably isn’t helping the rest of us. Luckily, this weekend I’ve been blessed with a good deal of rest and relaxation compared to last weekend. A little R & R to recharge for the week is totally cool with me. 🙂 So here’s to another Marvelous Monday, thanks to the lovely Katie!


Marvelous is…

A great workout on Friday. After 10 minutes each on the elliptical and treadmill, I did a strength and cardio circuit workout (I’ll share it soon!) and finished with a 1000m row. I never use the rowing machine normally so I did NOT know how much I would feel it in my glutes! Of course, my shoulders were dying too.

Oh and remember when I thought I was super speedy on the treadmill? Well I am now fully convinced that that particular treadmill is slower than all the others while still showing the same speed on the monitor. Dangit. I’ve gone on other treadmills since then, and I’ve been running in the 7’s, but when I went on that treadmill again on Friday, I was running in the 8’s comfortably and I wasn’t necessarily feeling especially spunky that day. Ohhh well. I’m just surprised that I’ve started running more at all!

Marvelous is…

My first pumpkin oats of the season! And my first pumpkin anything of the season for that matter.


To be honest, I don’t really taste that much of a difference between pumpkin oats and my usual banana oats. Maybe it’s because I add banana in addition to the pumpkin. Or maybe I just need to add more pumpkin. Or maybe I’m just adding the pumpkin to be a typical blogger ;). Whichever the reason, ’twas an absolutely delicious and comforting way to start my Saturday!

Marvelous is…

Hanging out with some company girls on Saturday night! Some of the girls went apple picking and then Pam invited us over to her house to hang out and eat pizza. I didn’t get to go apple picking, but I still really want to go sometime soon! It’s on my imaginary fall bucket list.

Kiwi! Packing in the vitamin C to fight this bug. Plus, isn’t it just so pretty?!

Marvelous is…

The most aromatic and soothing homemade ginger, mint, honey, lime tea.

I really wish I could bring the scent of this tea with me everywhere.

Those are the highlights of my weekend! As you can tell, it wasn’t super exciting, but I definitely appreciated the down time. Hope you have a great week!

So tell me: How was your weekend? What are some pumpkin things you’re eating? Do you like kiwi?

  1. Love kiwi… except it makes my mouth feel scratchy/weird. That tea sounds delicious – hot or cold! Hope you feel better soon – it’s that time of year again, hey. I felt like I was coming down with something on Friday but managed to kill it with some raw honey & veggie soup.
