Life is Marvelous
Good morning darlings! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for a great week!
This morning we’re going to start things off a little differently around here ;)
Have you heard of Marvelous Monday yet? Well, if you haven’t make sure you check out Katie’s blog and read up on what Marvelous Monday is all about because it’s going to be a regular occurrence around here from now on! :)
If you haven’t noticed already, I am all about finding the positives and beauty in our lives, so when Katie announced her idea of Marvellous Monday and writing a post about all of the marvelous things in our lives each Monday I was extremely excited and knew that I wanted to participate! :)
So what’s so marvellous about my life lately?
Waking up with DOMS
When I woke up yesterday, I felt like I was hit by a bus – in a good way of course! I usually feel this way after I complete my leg and chest days, so my first of two rest days throughout the week is usually taken after my chest day; therefore, yesterday was a marvelous day of rest! But, I’m ready to hit up the gym right after I finish up breakfast here ;)
Which is also pretty marvelous…
NuNaturals Lemon Liquid Stevia
Ever since I received this in the mail from the giveaway I won over at Julie’s blog, I have been hooked! All of the flavours, vanilla, orange, and lemon are absolutely amazing and make an appearance throughout my day at least once, but the lemon flavour is by far my favourite of them all!
I actually have a new favourite snack combo involving this marvelous product!
It’s not to pretty, but it tastes like heaven! All you need is 1 cup Greek yogurt, hemp seeds, raw buckwheat groats, chia seeds, and liquid lemon stevia!
New nail polish
Katie is always inspiring me and her nails never cease to amaze me either! This week, I purchased a new nail polish by L’OREAL called Now You Sea Me (I always love the fun names they give to nail polish!) I love this new colour and it’s such a nice change from the mint greens and teals that I am always drawn to…
Don’t you just love it when you experience the best of some type of fruit or vegetable? My Mom bought these tomatoes from the grocery store yesterday and they are marvelous. Just like candy!
My stocked cupboard of tea
When my Mom and I had our girls getaway on Thursday, we paid a visit to DavidsTea (three visits to be exact), so I could replenish my depleting stock that I brought with me from London!
I was so happy we got to go to David’s; I was definitely experiencing some withdrawal. I purchased six different types of teas and tried three new flavours released for summer!
A full review and more tea talk happening tomorrow ;)
I am still loving my tofu mousse, but I have made a new flavour combination that I may love even more seeing as how I’ve had it four times since last Monday…
It tastes like custard and it is marvelous! You have to give this one a try!
Healthy Tofu “Custard”
170 grams firm tofu
1/4 cup almond milk
15 drops liquid lemon stevia
1/3 scoop vanilla protein powder (approximately 10 grams)
Blend until smooth, chill, and enjoy!
Life sure is marvelous isn’t it? :D
I’m sure my workout is going to be marvelous, too ;)
See you tomorrow for tea talk!
Love you and don’t forget to smile! :D
Tell me at least one marvelous thing about your life!
How was your weekend?
