Nope, I totally didn’t plan on titling this post after a Christmas song but it’s the first Marvelous Monday of December so I think it’s kinda suiting, don’t you? Thank you Katie for hosting another marvelous link-up!
99% of the time I’m go-go-go but since Ryan’s surgery I’ve taken it down a notch and surprisingly I’ve been enjoying the slower pace… I guess you could say that I’m living more in the moment and less thinking about the past and planning the future. It’s different and it’s new but I like it, evidenced by this weekend’s marvelous happenings

Today… #elf4Health 12/3 Day 8: Track your fiber intake today! Shoot for 25-30 grams and show us your favorite high-fiber foods. I ate 17.5 grams of fiber for breakfast, holy cow! I haven’t kept track of exact numbers this afternoon, but I imagine that I’ve already exceeded 30 grams with my lunch and snack… An apple, a pear, snap peas, yellow squash, bombay potatoes, a bit of dark chocolate, and a yogurt + cereal + walnut mixture.
Tomorrow… #elf4Health 12/4 Day 9: Have a salad today and make your own dressing. I eat at least 1 salad a day, gotta feed the veggie monster in me!
Question: Eggnog- yay or nay? My momma used to make homemade eggnog for all of the winter parties my parents would host. This was my first time buying a boxed variety but I say yay!
Question: What do you think about when you run? Running is the one time when I can completely tune out from the world around me…
