Who's enjoying the Snowpocalyspe?! Seriously, I thought we'd be battling zombies or something, but we're battling frostbite...which is worse??

I guess I was a little naive with just how cold it gets up north, because I am blown away (ha ha see what I did there?) with the forecasts from all of my northern/midwestern bloggers!!! I can't imagine negative degree forecasts, I think it's only gotten that cold a few times in my life.

Marvelous is.....a really really relaxed weekend!

I also got addicted to this show...

If you read my post yesterday, you are aware that I did pretty much nothing over the weekend except watch television and eat - which is exactly what I needed!! My body and mind totally benefited from the time off - it's weird that I'm so much more aware of my body and mind than previous months/years. I like being able to lay around for two or three days and not feel anxious/guilty about it!

Marvelous is.....veggies!!

Contrary to my Instagram feed, I do actually eat vegetables, in more than one form. ;) Mom made me some kick-butt stir-fry chicken and veggies; sounds so simple, but her flavorings were spot on! The butter helped. ;)

Marvelous is......packages!!!

So with my gift card I got a giant box of Chocolate Chunk LUNA Bars which I haven't seen in FOREVER! They are my absolute favorite flavor!!! I also got some stuff from American Eagle, a pretty necklace, and some chia seeds! Just waiting on my Wild Friends almond butter....

Marvelous workout clothes!

Sorry for the extremely awkward angle (Rebekah refused to stand up to take my pic....ha...), but I am in love with this top! It's so cute, stylish, and best of all, comfortable! 

Marvelous is.......a new book!

I actually pre-ordered this book last spring because I was so excited to read it. I looovvee historical fiction, and this is about the affects on Turkey and the Turkish people during World War II. It's definitely more fact based and historical than romancy, so if you like that stuff, highly recommended!

Marvelous is.....indoor workouts!

It's freeezziinnggg and I am not running outside. Nuh uh. Luckily, my neighbors have an awesome home gyms that's stocked with pretty much everything - yoga mats, a treadmill, dumbells, kettle bells, jump ropes, plus a giant TV and stereo - you name it, it's probably in there. 

Side story: Okay, not-so-marvelous is the treadmill. I somehow managed 30 minutes with my music blasting to keep me focused. I haven't run on the treadmill since like...last summer so it was a little bleh. 

I went through a mid-treadmill crisis and hopped off in the middle of it to go run in the snow because I was going crazy. 

My face after I realized how weird I was for doing that.....

I need treadmill therapy. 

Marvelous is......Chocolate Chunk LUNA Bar!!!

Yes, I took a selfie with my bars. Not weird. 

Marvelous is......Day 1 of the 21 Day Yoga Challenge!

I'll be honest and say this was a morning sequence...that I didn't do in the morning. But I was in my pajamas, so that counts, right? It was really focused on relaxation, awareness, and breathing, rather than strength...I was so relaxed by the end! It lasted about 20 minutes...the instructor's voice almost put me to sleep!

I hope you've had a fantastic snow day, day off, or just regular Monday - stay warm!! <3


  1. I didn't do it in the morning either, oops. I LOVE those Chia seeds and I am totally jealous of your giant box of luna bars. I've actually never tried that flavor and I can't believe it. Vegetables are pretty marvelous, especially stir fry. Stir fry is my favoriteee! (:

    1. I'm so glad you're doing yoga with us!!! Omg, the Chocolate Chunk flavor is the best flavor everrrr. It seriously tastes like a giant (albeit healthy...haha) cookie and has huge chunks of chocolate! And I agree, veggies and stir fry are pretty marvelous. :))

  2. Hahaha yeah does 12 count as the morning? ;) I took a selfie with my giant Reese's bar the other day so don't feel bad lol! I am so jealous you can go in your neighbor's basement, and that they have a home gym. I don't even know my neighbors! And that book looks really good - I don't really like romance so that's right up my alley!

    1. Ha totally, especially when there's no school. You had a giant Reese's bar?!?!?!?!
      My neighbors are good friends of ours, and it's really nice that they have a home gym when need be - they always let me come over when I want to haha!
      Yeah, definitely check out the book, it's a really good read. :) It's got a little bit of romance in it, but not in a gushy sort of way. I don't really know how to explain it, lol. Have an awesome day!
