|Thank you, Katie!|
Good Morning and a very happy Monday to you!
I desperately needed to be positive about this day.
Ever have those days (or weeks!) where the funk seems to be chasing you around?
I am apparently playing one of those games of 'tag' and I do not intend to be 'it'!
Nope, not at all!
I am running and the funk can go and find someone else to play his silly little game!
This chick is freakin' Marvelous in Her Monday!
I have to admit, I am totally slacking on picture taking during the weekend.
The boyfriend and I sort of spend a lot of time being schmoopy and not worrying about pictures, the blog, or anything else; we get such limited time together that we take advantage or 'us' time.
We love US!
What we don't love is our inability to take a decent picture together!
Seriously, we tried this weekend and it didn't work out so well.
He looked dorky, I looked good. I looked ridiculous, he had a great smile.
We couldn't get it together for a good picture and so we gave up in a fit of laughter.
The weekend started out a little like this on Friday night...
Waiting for my sweetie to arrive, so why not get some good old fashioned ab work in?
Yup, I have an entire little routine that hits all the different ab muscles and kicks your
butt belly in the best way possible. I good way to end the day and kick-off the weekend1
Saturday was filled with rain, rain, and more rain.
I am not going to lie, I love the rain and with cooler fall temps, too?
Except for one thing...we had a soccer game to go to.
Well, we made it to the second half of the game and spent most of it in the car.
The rain let-up and we got to see the game end in a tie.
My son's bestie plays for their high school. the were 8-0 going in to Saturday's game; it wasn't a conference game so their ranking still stands and no losses!
I guess I forgot to get a picture of an amazing lasagna that I made the guys.
I don't make stuff like that, but my love said it sounded good so heck yeah I made one for everyone!
I hear it was pretty good.
The rest of the day was spent in total chill mode and it was fantastic!
Followed it up by one of the worst night's sleep I have had in a long time though.
Fell asleep early while Tim watched a movie and then woke up for over 2 hours in the middle of the night.
That is the worst! I am back on my magnesium and hopefully that helps!
Sunday had it's own little bit of excitement...
My beloved George Foreman grill burned me!
The teeniest-tiniest little burn that feels like a crater!
Seriously, it is super little but it hurts like crazy!
Oh well, my kiddo loved his bacon wrapped burger, so it was worth a little 2nd degree burn, right?
(This would NOT have happened if I was cooking chicken!)
My sweetie usually has to leave around noon on Sunday, so he and I went for a beautiful walk in the morning before saying our goodbye's. Sunday's have become my least favorite day; we cannot wait until the goodbye's turn in to good morning's each and every day.
Yes, we are on the countdown!
I spent the rest of the day cleaning like a mad woman and it feels so good to get the house stuff done.
Do you enjoy housework?
I do, I honestly do.
This was a full-blown vacuuming, laundry, freezer, trash and whatnot cleaning frenzy!
Fun stuff and one heck of a workout.
So here we are enjoying a nice workout for a Monday morning.
A little more traditional than hauling a vacuum up and down the stairs.
Boxing, cardio and weighted compound moves.
How's that for a triple threat?
I tried to flex and I think I flopped more than I flexed.
The struggle is real on a Monday!
I would also like to point out the impressive bags I am traveling with these days.
These are for the new fall line...extra baggy!
It is a Monday.
It is Marvelous, is it not?
Well, you are in charge of the day so go out there and make it exactly what you want it to be!
Yeah, you've got that kind of power...
