MIMM #6 7/22/2013

I've been so busy and tired lately that I'm a little behind on marathon training updates so you'll get that later this week! My weekend flew by, yet again, but here are some of the marvelous highlights!

Marvelous is starting off the week tonight with a  Charm City Healthy Living Bloggers meetup tonight. I'm excited to make some new friends!
Marvelous is getting out of bed to run on a Monday morning to make up for some long run miles I skipped this weekend. It was humid of course, but overcast and surprisingly pleasant to run in. I haven't done a workout on Monday morning in weeks!
Marvelous is going to the Under Armour sample sale on Sunday (thanks Maria and Kacie!)  and spending WAY too much money but getting some amazing bargains on some shorts and winter fitness gear! I love the teal pullover I got for $30 marked down from $70! It is going to be super cute and warm when the temperatures drop! Now I feel like a real Baltimorean all decked out in my UA gear :)

Marvelous is getting the chance to leisurely cook dinner with the bf and whip up some snacks and food prep for the week including these cocoa zucchini muffins from Slim Sanity with some leftover farmer's market zucchini. They are super moist, veggie packed, and delicious. I suspect they'll probably be gone before the end of the week!

Marvelous is competing in my first in-box Crossfit competition this past weekend! What?! Even though it was crazy hard (majorly dropped the ball on the squat clean ladder WOD), I didn't get last place and definitely challenged myself!
Marvelous is getting to go to Artscape, America's largest free arts festival, because it's right in my neighborhood. I saw some great short films, concerts, and lots of local art.  It was a hot and stormy weekend, but a great festival this year nonetheless!
Checking out the band Jukebox the Ghost in the hot Saturday sun!

Marvelous is  big Sunday breakfasts. I enjoy pancakes a couple times a week because I love them, but I always need some pancakes on Sunday with cup of coffee (iced with almond milk lately!). The boyfriend made me some peach ones this weekend because he knows those are my favorite. I had him use the Kodiak pancake mix I picked up on sale at Target, and he added some vanilla extract and fresh sliced peaches from the farmer's market. They were delicious topped with some maple syrup and I went back for seconds, of course!

What was your favorite part of the weekend? Do you have a different breakfast on the weekends than during the week?


  1. How ironic - my friend's cousin is in Jukebox the Ghost!

  2. Sounds like a great weekend! What marathon are you training for?

  3. Score on the under armour stuff! I love their clothing line!

    And that is awesome on the crossfit competition! <3

  4. Pancakes are a must on Sunday for me too! It's sort of become a tradition that I go for my Sunday Run and come home and eat a ridiculously large amount of pancakes!! Weekdays are usually a yogurt parfait or oats but pancakes weirdly make an appearance for dinner at least one week night ;)

  5. I'm not much of a breakfast eater so maybe that's why my breakfasts are pretty much the same throughout the week. I say that and now it may change! I've seen so many yummy recipes for protein pancakes I'm thinking about changing my breakfast menu. yum!

    So cool that you competed in a crossfit comp!

  6. Congrats on your first crossfit competition, kudos to you, I don't think I could ever do that!

    I love chocolate Zuchini bread/muffins!

    My breakfast on the weekend is usually cereal or something more leisurely like eggs...during the week its grab and go or yogurt at my desk!

  7. Congrats on the crossfit competition! WOW! What was the WOD?
    Oh and that art festival looks epic! I would love to do something like that this summer! Cheers! xo
