Marvelous in my Monday!

by danielle on December 17, 2012

Happy Monday! Celebrating Marvelous in My Monday thanks to Katie. Lots of fun things going on this Monday! Local readers pay attention cause I have a special deal to share with you. I’m also bringing you some awesome links from the past week and can’t wait to share.

First off a little update. Sophie has the cone off. Hooray! We are both very excited. She looks sweet in this picture but she is back to her normal crazy self.

The weekend was a busy one filled with lots of fun things to do but I still managed to get in my grocery shopping and meal prep. The week ahead will be a bit chaotic which means food prep for the week is definitely a priority!

Here’s what I got:

Bananas, apples, Greek yogurt, Puffins (gluten free kind), organic carrots, honey, sunflower seed butter, zucchini, bell pepper, holiday tea, unsweetened almond breeze, potatoes, baby spinach, eggs, brown rice, ground turkey, lean burgers, Kind bars (peanut protein is my favorite). Hiding from the picture are egg whites and raw goat cheddar cheese.

Here’s what I prepped:

Lastly for link love I wanted to honor some of the beautiful heartfelt posts in the light of the elementary school shooting. Words can’t express how deeply sad I am for the tragedy so instead I’ve gathered a collection of words from others.

Here they are: 

Moving on to something a little lighter…

Hi, I hope this doesn’t sound weird or mean, BUT wondering if you could show more full pictures of you? Like I kind of want to sign up for your nutrition consultation, but it is expensive and I kind of want to “see you” beforehand. I don’t mean that in a stalkerish way!! Ha. I just feel more comfortable seeing the person I’m possibly coaching me (considering the expense and importance). I remember the girl at “she rocks fitness” starting putting her pics up because of the same type of thing. It helps as odd as it seems.
I like the way you eat and don’t know if you are suited to help those that don’t exercise much + have digestive issues (I don’t know if you ONLy look at weight loss which I don’t need) BUT again it’s that issue above….anyway, thanks.

I totally understand where you are coming from and am actually in the process of updating my site to make it a bit more personal. I just had professional pictures taken. They will be on the site soon. I cover all areas of nutrition and have in fact dealt with digestive issues of my own so I totally understand. I was diagnosed with Celiac a little over a year ago. I’d love to help you out and would be happy to offer you a free 45 minute phone consultation so you could see if we are a good fit.
