Marvelous in My Monday #33

by Healthy Diva on January 13, 2013


Another Monday is here, the weekend goes by SO fast!

This Monday is extra awesome, I have  a doctor appointment to hear Baby G’s heartbeat again and just for a regular monthly checkup! This week I will be 17 weeks! Time is flying!

Lots of Marvelous things over the weekend, including a date night, workouts outside, and new food finds!



Marvelous to get all dolled up for a dinner date out with Mike  :-D

Oh the turd bun is dolled up for me, pregnancy does that to you and my roots need done! I have a hair appt tomorrow luckily!

Those almonds look yummy. I might need to pick those up. Happy Monday love!

Those almonds would be delicious! Love that pic of you and your facial! So happy you got to hear your babes heartbeat again :)

Love you, miss

How exciting! Hearing your baby’s heartbeat…wow must be so amazing! You look absolutely marvelous..glowing, in fact ;). I’d like to try that face mask…and perhaps scare Tim hehe. I’ve never tried those coffee almonds but they immediately caught my attention. Off to school I go…bright and early. Hope you have a marvelous Monday!!


7 Anna January 14, 2013 at 8:25 am

Dinner looks AMAZING! I wish we had better fresh options around here. Whenever I want Mexican food, it comes out dripping in grease. I wish they realized there were more healthy options that people would like.
Loving the baby bump. Almost makes me want to get one. *Almost* Have a great Monday!

14 Danielle @ Clean Food Creative Fitness January 14, 2013 at 10:07 am

Happy Monday Katie! I love that list of 5 rules for happiness. I’m going to have to remember that always. Coffee mocha almonds sound amazing. Can’t wait to hear what you think of them!


15 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More January 14, 2013 at 10:30 am

Ah! I need to get my hands on some pretzel rolls. And I love your poop mask… It looks very relaxing. Haha :).


20 Jess @ JessieBear What Will You Wear January 14, 2013 at 10:58 am

That salad looks/sounds absolutely fantastic… might have to attempt a copy cat recipe tonight! & I love that last list. This is why I love reading blogs, reminding me of positive things like this.

Looks like a fab weekend though. Happy Monday :)


21 Farrah @ Fairy Healthy Life January 14, 2013 at 11:09 am

What, coffee almonds? They sound delicious! I hope you have a great appointment today.


22 eisha January 14, 2013 at 11:11 am

Ooo! I’m so excited for your hair appointment! You’re inspiring me to get my hair styled as well – I’ve been rocking the “turd bun” because of the humid weather haha! Also, what’s your poop face scrub? I’ve been looking for a good one


23 Healthy Diva January 14, 2013 at 1:38 pm
24 Christine January 14, 2013 at 12:15 pm

When my hair was long, I rocked that bun all the time. Part of the reason I cut my hair, but now I’m growing it long again so the bun shall return!


25 Caitlin January 14, 2013 at 12:39 pm

LOL OMG THE POOP. You kill me. Hilarious. Umm thanks for reminding me that I need to try the pretzel Flat Outs ASAP. I forgot about them!


26 Sara @ Nourish and Flourish January 14, 2013 at 12:39 pm

Marvelous is reading this MIMM post!! Love you to pieces! I hope your doctor’s appointment goes well today! I can’t believe you’re already at 17 weeks!

Your flatout sandwich looks uh-maazing! I may need to make something similar for lunch today because I’m swooning over here. ;)

Happy Monday, love! xoxo


27 Rachel January 14, 2013 at 12:43 pm

Turd bun or not, you still look fab! :D So nice that you guys had nice weather, it was pretty foggy here lol


28 Alysia @ Slim Sanity January 14, 2013 at 2:48 pm

oooh man! I need to try those almonds!


29 Shel@PeachyPalate January 14, 2013 at 2:51 pm

Those almonds looks so good! Nothing like a little boost in heat, we’re back to potential snow here this week…


30 Kim @ HealthyNest January 14, 2013 at 3:12 pm

Wow, this post is making me hungry! Except maybe for the poop part… :) Happy Monday Katie!


31 Healthy Diva January 14, 2013 at 5:26 pm

lol!! Happy Monday Kim!


32 Kristen @ Change of Pace January 14, 2013 at 3:24 pm

I love the simple rules of happiness. I totally needed that today. Have a marvelous Monday Katie!


33 Healthy Diva January 14, 2013 at 5:26 pm

You too love! :)


34 Lisa January 14, 2013 at 3:35 pm

So happy for you to go to your appointment and hear the heartbeat again! Those almond looks awesome! I’ve been so addicted to them lately! And mocha almonds, you know I’d be all over that one. I love those simple rules to happiness. True!


35 Jill @ Miss Delish January 14, 2013 at 4:07 pm

Mmmm Salsa! I have a hollow leg when it comes to chips and salsa. Usually I eat so much that I am full when my meal comes…woops.


36 Healthy Diva January 15, 2013 at 8:22 am

Ditto! Lol!


37 Allison @ Life's a Bowl January 14, 2013 at 5:09 pm

I hope you had a marvelous appointment today :) Date nights and outdoor workouts are definitely marvelous- I loved running outside yesterday, so much better than on a dreadmill! And yum to your sandwich, I loveee TJ’s guac [with Greek yogurt and with hummus]!


38 Ali @ WHOLEistically Fit January 14, 2013 at 5:27 pm

Aw, how fun to hear your little one’s heartbeat. That’s got to be so incredibly special. :D I love me some good Mexican food, too! That restaurant looks fab – I can tell just by the fact that they serve multiple kinds of salsa with their chips. I’m a huge salsa fan! ;)


39 jaclyn January 14, 2013 at 7:15 pm

GIRL you ROCK the turd bun! You rock any hair style, clothing style, you are just beautiful always inside and out<3

Sounds like you had a great weekend! A mixture of going out and staying in and relaxing is always an ideal great weekend in my book :) oh and ps that is like my dream salad (the one you go at Juniper grill)! :]love you!


40 Healthy Diva January 15, 2013 at 8:22 am

Haha! You are so sweet, thank you! I am glad I do since it will be around for a while ;)

Hope you are well! Love you!


41 Allison January 14, 2013 at 10:22 pm

So many things to say!

1. Those Nature Valley bars are the BOMB.
2. I know I’m way behind, but congratulations on the pregnancy! :) Kids are the best<3 I'm a nanny and am head over heels for my girls. I cannot get enough of them.
3. Your dinner looks insane. Just texted my boyfriend and told him we need to go out for Mexican food soon, simply so I can have some guacamole.
4. Those almonds are now on my Target list for tomorrow.


42 Healthy Diva January 15, 2013 at 8:21 am

Yes they are!
Thank you so much! We are so excited!!
Yes, get some mexican food stat! Always a good choice ;)
I hope you find them at target!

My Monday was marvelous because I was stress-free, hung out with my best friend Slava, and rocked both of my gym sessions. I was on fire yesterday! :D And now I’m ready for school to start today.

Happy TUESDAY to you :)
