Good morning! Welcome to Marvelous in my Monday, hosted by the lovely Katie from Healthy Diva Life. It is definitely a marvelous Monday, for me, because I have the day off from work. Oh, aren’t three-day weekends just the best ever!?!?
Saturday morning I was up bright and early to hit the gym. I got in a 5 mile run before Body Pump started. Last Saturday, was my first Body Pump class since all of the marathon training. Let me tell you…. I don’t think I have ever been so sore in my life. Yikes! Notice my new Altra Zero Drop running shoes. They’re pretty awesome. Altra is one of the sponsors for the ZOOMA race and since I’m an ambassador for the Austin run in April, they were generous enough to send me a free pair to try out.

After getting cleaned up from an awesome workout sesh, I made my way into Fort Worth. I had some errands to run and it was time to hit up my two favorite places; Trader Joe’s and Costco.
The temperature has been beautiful this weekend. This picture was taken Saturday and on Sunday I was able to get in some outside running in shorts and a t-shirt. Not to complain, but it actually got a little warm.
One of the errands that I had to run was to The Container Store. A new Container just opened up in my area and it was so nice. I wish I could buy everything, but don’t we all!
After all of my many errands, I raced back home to meet my mom for dinner and a movie. We decided to see August: Osage County with Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. It was so good. A little depressing, but the acting was AMAZING. You guys know, I don’t use that word lightly.
Sunday was a day of laundry, recipe creation and cleaning up the house. Still a great day, though. Lots of goodies to share with you later this week, like this “cheese” cake. Guess what? It’s not really cheese…. I can’t wait to share this recipe with you.
Dinner was a Trader Joe’s original. I tasted the Teriyaki chicken and Japanese fried rice when I was in there on Saturday and it was great.
Easy and really delicious! I served some roasted asparagus and broccoli on the side. And you better believe I had some Raw Vegan “Cheese” Cake for dessert!
And that’s a wrap!
Something to think about…..
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
Have you seen August: Osage County? If so, what did you think?
Any fellow Body Pumpers out there?
Hope the start to your week is fabulous!
