Marvelous in my Monday!!

Happy Monday, welcome to a new week and to the traditional start with the flipping marvelous Mondayparty over at the beautiful DIVA!

MiMMToday is my exam!! Cross fingers! So you can imagine that a lot of studying was going on on the weekend, but I managed to plan a few fun things around it, to still make this weekend marvelous.

Food was one of the things, like my snack and dinner on Friday:

Munching on Beef Jerky’s in the train to Zurich…..

….Chicken in Herbsrust, Spinach Greens, Baby Tomatoes, Chickpeas

Β My body was doing weird things all weekend. I hardly had any appetite, my legs felt sluggish and my belly felt like a stone and looked like I was carrying twins in it. Sorry if that is TMI, but things have to be said sometimes πŸ™‚ So I tried to take it easy and good care of it and do what is best. Which meant at first to take a full restday on Saturday. Sandro joined me for an easy morningwalk at the lake……

……which was followed by a light and yummy breakfast:

Omeletee with veggies&coconut butter

I took a few hours of the afternoon for studying before I had my ‘afternoon-lunch’:

Strawberry-Protein-Smoothie&Amazeballs

Then we headed out for another walk this time to the botanical garden which is just behind our house. I met a sweet little friend there who immediately fell in love with me and didn’t want to leave me anymore πŸ™‚ My heart couldn’t even handle it.

When we got back I prepared everything for our visitors, we had a couple coming for dinner to our place and it was a lovely, lovely evening with good talks, good food and many laughters!!

Sunday morning I woke up around 8, did my meditation and started with a workout. Some cycling, TRX circuit and this AB/Cardio Training which I love!!!

Fuel after:

Omelette with veggies&amazeballs

Yes, I know, I am such a creative girl with all these same meals. But I just wanted a change in my pancake kick and went back to the good old eggomelette which is also always a winner. Tomorrow will be pancakes again though πŸ™‚

Rest of Sunday was chatting with this wonderful friend, emailing with beautiful Courtney, studying, a walk and a bit of meal prep. I did not plan the whole week yet, but some ideas are:

Oatbran-Curd-Pancakes

Chicken-Frittata

Horseradish Dip with raw veggiesticks

Herbscrusted chicken on a saladbowl & Hummus

And here’s dinner from last night, oh it was SO good! So that was it….nothing exciting, just a lazy quite but marvelous Sunday.

Herbed Salmon filet, steamed broccoli, raw pepper strips

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are off to a great start today! I send you Love!

Sweet or Savory for Breakfast? Or Breakfast at all? I need to eat breakfast, otherwise I am useless. It can be sweet or savory, I don’t mind as long as there are eggwhites πŸ™‚

Tell me one marvelous thing about your weekend!!

    Fingers crossed – for your exam! And I’m sorry you had (hopefully it’s all over) an upset stomach during the weekend. I hope it was all about being nervous about today.

    And you look marvelous with that cat!! Are you a cat or a dong person I wonder? πŸ˜€

    Me and breakfast were never good together. I’m not a breakfast person, but I still trying to get mine, however not before 10am.

  3. Good luck on your exam, love! You’re going to rock it πŸ™‚

    Sounds like you had a marvelous weekend for sure! I went snowboarding in the mountains this weekend, which was absolutely perfect – the weekend went by too quickly though! And as for breakfast, mine definitely has to be sweet. The idea of savory just turns my stomach.

    Happy Monday!

    • Can’t go wrong with a weekend riding the slopes!! And it sounds like it was perfect. I did not go yet, shame on me, maybe after Easter! Thank you, finally the exam is done!

  4. I love sweet AND savory! Yesterday I had sweet maple oats topped with a fried egg and crumbled bacon with cinnamon…soooo good!

    I hope you’re feeling better love…I didn’t feel the same amount of energy in this post as I normally get from you. Maybe just exam jitters? I’m sure you’ll do great, but I wish you luck anyway!

    Kitty cuteness! LOVVVVE!

    The most marvelous part of my weekend was the progress I made in my physical therapy!!

    • Yeees, I read it!! So fraking cool!! Hmmmm, sweet maple oats, now that sounds delicous.
      My belly…I guess it’s this marvelous time a month we girls get, awwyeah….

    I’m a mix of sweet and savoury for breakfast…I like sweet, but I usually throw eggs in there too.
