MIMM – MArvelous in my Monday hosted by lovely Katie over at healthydivaeats.com, thank you!

This weekend was so full of christmas atmosphere, it was amazing. When I woke up on Sunday morning all was white and big snowflakes were flying around – so beautiful!! When this happens, I always feel as if it was already christmasday. As I had some trouble with my old blog, I decided to fix these things first in the morning and sat on the comupter for about 3 hours in my pijamas 🙂 I then realized that I completely forgot to feed my body so I rushed into kitchen and prepared one of my favorite breakfast:

Chicken-Egg-Omelett

Sandro and me absolutely wanted to go out to enjoy the snow and as the sun came out, we decided to go for a run and later stroll around the city, as the shops were open this Sunday. It was beautiful out there!!

After a TRX session , stretching and a hot and long shower, I digged in a snack –

 

Pear-Protein-Cinnamon-Smoothie. Ooooh YES.

– and then we strolled downtown. We crossed the little Xmas-market down the street. There are a lot of them around here, you can buy all kind of stuff but mostly people go to have fingerfood at the stands or hot spiced wine.

When it got dark, watched the christmaslighting in the main shoppingstreet while sipping a hot spiced wine. The lighting is called LUCY!! 🙂

It's beginning to look a lot like christmas.....

It was funny, we met so many people out there in town we know. We chatted here and there and enjoyed the company. Returning home was great, warm and cosy! We turned on the oven and threw loads of healthy stuff in. It was delicious!!

So that was it for this Sunday!! Beautiful Katie from healthydivaeats.com does not only host MIMM today, she also created such a GREAT challenge for December. It is called DOMINATE IN DECEMBER and is all about living healthy but not restrictive, giving and donating to people who are not as privileged, sharing beauty tips&tricks, doing something to be proud of, being active, being happy and relaxed = HEALTHY. My #dominateindecember this weekend was:

#dominatediva: My body craved hot spiced wine and I gave it!

#dominatediva: I donated for World’s AIDS day on Saturday!

#dominatediva: I ran 50minutes outdoor despite snow and cold!!

Join in the challenge, I think this is really a great one!

Happy Monday friends!

  1. What a Marvelous MIMM post! Sounds like you and Sandro had a wonderful weekend together. Please e-mail me this pear cinnamon smoothie you talk about. It sounds and looks pretty tasty =)

    Hi there, I’ve been following your blog for quite a while and I enjoy it so much.
    Your food looks so yummy! Being a shrimp addict I wonder how do you cook yours?

    • Hey Greta, that makes me so happy to hear! Thank you!! This time I just baked them in the oven – on a bake sheet, and a bit of lemon juice, nothing else. It’s easy cause you can just throw the veggies and potatoes in too and just wait till all is done. But they are best when you make them on the grill in summer! So good! Happy Monday!!

  3. All of this food looks really good. That smoothie sounds particularly good.

    Great MIMM post! And I must have totally skipped over that dominate diva challenge. Thanks for making me aware of it. Haha.

  4. It looks gorgeous where you are! I love the look of that chicken omelet you made too, yum!! Glad you had a great weekend!! Have a Marvelous Monday!! 🙂

  5. You made the move over to WP! Mwee! Site looks great, Lucie! And your weekend sounds absolutely marvelous – mine was full of tonnes of Christmas decorating and really getting into the spirit. Loooove this time of year.

    • Yes!! I am so excited thank you so much for your helpful tips!! It still need a lot to be done but it’s ok for a start. I saw your christmas decorations, sooo cute and pretty!!

  6. I can’t believe I have never read your blog before, it’s fabulous! That spiced wine looks exactly like something I would like to be drinking. You are SOOO brave for running in that weather!! I love running when it is warm out, but as soon as the temperature drops too much, I chicken out!!

    • Oh thank you Devon you are so sweet!! This wine is the most famos christmas drink here, you can get it everywhere. It’s not specifically healthy but oh well, in moderation it’s ok and it’s SO good! I like the warm weather better too believe me, it was freaking cold! 🙂
