Hey Friends!

Four whole posts in one weekend…

Who am I?

Kidding, I would love to be able to keep up with this pace but this is a busy up and coming week for me, work wise, starting this afternoon. Sigh. Life never stops. But hey, that keeps it interesting right?

Before I leave you guys for a few days I really wanted to share some of the Marvelous things that have happened over the past week so I’m linking up with Katie over at Healthy Diva Eats for this blogger party.

MiMM MIMM #101 Three Word Weekend!

Check out Katie’s and the other bloggers marvelousities (HA a Chelsea-ism at it’s finest) over at her blog. 🙂

I have a lot to share but gotta keep it short and sweet as I have to run off to work soon so …

Challenge “keep short” accepted. GO!

Getting some amazing and sweet feedback from my new client at the gym…

Getting to wear my new vibrams! Weeeoo purple feetsies. 😀

20140609-140325-50605579.jpgPlease excuse my gross pale lookin legs. Not my fault, even us slightly darker skinned peoples got hit hard this winter…

So now, I have this pair for everyday wear and my old pair for the gym. I no longer have to feel gross about wearing my gym shoes when I want to be active outside or just comfy.

Randomly running into a nice lil festival downtown Dundas when I was just running a quick errand.

20140609-140343-50623337.jpgThe quick errand turned into a longer 1.5 hour errand as I…

Watched an Ex Cirque Du Soleil performer do his thang on the streets sans safety gear.

20140609-142902-52142265.jpgParooozed the many booths including this interesting stand…

20140609-140325-50605049.jpgYes, that would be potato chips on a stick…

20140609-142902-52142820.jpgApparently any food can be kebab-ed these days.

Marveled at the metallic lady cowgirl…

20140609-140324-50604503.jpg…and wondered how annoying it must be to get all of that paint off herself after her day is done. Howdy!

Meeting up with my parents to have a nice and light dinner at…

20140609-140326-50606094.jpgWHOLE FOODS. Best place ever? Yes.

Also marvelous is the fact that the Oakville WF’s hot food bar is now getting more and more fish options which is a nice treat for me! Now, dinner was light for a reason….

Indulging in and fully enjoying gelato after a year of not having it.

20140609-140326-50606675.jpgDrrrooollll…
20140609-140327-50607213.jpgMy love. Pistachio. Only the best!

Despite me craving this thing of beauty for months now I told myself that I couldn’t have it, for both mental and physical reasons, so this was a hurdle that was hopped this weekend for me.

20140609-140327-50607911.jpgPistachio (obviously) and wildberry sorbet…Oh and can I have more pistachio than sorbet please..? 😉

Because I was testing the dairy waters (I took two lactaids with this, but still had to be careful with deeee tummy), I had to resist the chocolate peanut butter gelato along with my pistachio. I did totally sample that though! 😉 When I’m feeling brave I will have both. So to have one dairy free option, I went with this beautifully pink and really yummy wildberry sorbet.

The gelato walrus is baaaackkk…

Hopefully. It didn’t kill me this time. Let’s pray that lasts. 🙂

Getting to watch Maggie go nuttzo along the Burlington Lakeshore Boardwalk following said gelato while listening to the Sound of Music Festival that was going on in the background.

20140609-140342-50622837.jpgYou may think this is a small victory BUT it’s so nice to see so many supporters of my craft..aka my food mostly HA!

So, I didn’t do too bad eh?

..only 600 words 😛

  1. No gelato in a year? I don’t know how you do it. Sometimes I wish you had your discipline!

    • Disciple in this case is not really what it came down to if I have to be honest. Fear kind of took over for that one and fear is quite strong despite my cravings for it. Fear that it would throw my tummy off again, especially now that I’m finally starting to see a lil bit of progress with that digestive issue, and then, because I didn’t have it for a while, fear of the food itself because it’s considered ‘dirty’ in my mind and something I shouldn’t be eating. There is nothing wrong with an indulgence, and that is something I have to eventually learn to wrap my head around.

  2. Cute shoes- purple is my favourite colour!

  3. Very proud of you for allowing yourself some gelato, I know how hard it could be.

  4. Ugh. Not to be a DEBBIE DOWNER BUT… NOTHING was Marvelous for me this past weekend… OR TODAY 😦 Ugh! I am in such a funk and it stinks! However, I am thrilled you had such a great weekend!!!! 🙂

  5. Flipping through a magazine is one of my favorite things to do. For me, reading a magazine is a luxury. So, when I’m tempted to fill myself in inappropriate ways, I’ve learned that it’s okay to luxuriate like that. I’ve also learned that enjoying a “treat” that won’t cause me to stumble can help me avoid eating when I’m not hungry. I love a club soda was fresh lime; it makes me feel like I’m on vacation. Or, an iced coffee and gelato in the afternoon. Enjoy it and offer praise for that time to “fill your tank”!

  6. hey, could you explain your vitamin schedule? which vits you take on each day? for example…are there some you take everyday, and some you only take once a week. thanks! xx
