#MIMM: Live, Love, Enjoy, Compete!

Hey everyone and...

Happy Monday to ya! (Well, I realize it's Monday but heck...might as well make the most of it eh?!)

Well, perhaps not quite this much this early ;)
hehe

I have to say...

These past few days have been nothing but marvelous as...

I've been able to spend lots of my time with so many that I love!

Without a doubt...

I am feeling nothing but blessed and grateFUl for everything I've come to experience and live lately!

Having said that...

Today I'll be linking up to the marvelous Katie with her Marvelous in My Monday party!


Ready? 

Let's get to it then!

What's marvelous is the time I got to spend with my Mama and my sister. I surprised them both with a visit and sleepover! No words can tell you how much I appreciated the time spent with them. By the way, my sister is growing up so fast! Wow.


What's marvelous is the time I took to just be. Literally. Just spending time in the sun, soaking up the rays and putting my scheduled Friday posting on hold (delay). Posting can wait, living in the moment cannot :)

What I later posted for #RECIPEFRIDAY :)
I also have a NuNaturals giveaway going on right now so be sure to check it out!

What's marvelous is being able to compete (for the last time this season) with my amazing Florida Fitness Aylmer Teammates at the IDFA competition!


As I hadn't really mentioned it to anyone that I was competing again (I just had no real rhyme or reason to (other than I wanted to surprise my iron sista Moe who asked me to compete with her a couple of weeks back when I said I was done lol), I just wanted to go with the flow with it all. No updating, simply absorbing it all for all it had to offer. (I was pretty tired the last few days of my prep, I'll be honest in telling you that! I'm looking forward to my vacation and some much needed rest! No doubt! lol)

Rocking the Daydreams Fitness Wear tank given to me
by my amazing sponsor :)
Iron Moe, Mel, Coach SuperFit, Me and Rose!

Competition day was marvelous and really relaxed. (I think the more you compete, the more relaxed you feel, or not...perhaps it's just me lol). 

Packed my suitcase, got my hair did and registered.
Then, I chilled until show time :)
Like my makeup? :)
#FUFACE
Thank you Joan for the marvelous suit you created and designed for me!

FUrthermore...

I took my time getting ready and remained calm throughout the show! (The butterflies in my tummy only came out to play right before it was time to get on stage!) 

Focused and calm :)
My competition sandals. I've worn them to every single show.

No doubt...

I had a great time being in the bright lights....

Weeeeeeeeeee!
I have to tell you, the stage was so slippery I was extremely conscious cautious of my every move!

And...

I loved being able to share in the memories we made backstage! 


Also...

I just wanted to add that...

I'm super grateFUl for my Coach SuperFit (and the love of my life) for supporting me, always (in whatever I do!), my sponsor, Joan from Daydreams Fitness Wear and Bikini's, for dazzling me up in a one of a kind custom suit, 007, for doing my hair and offering me some early morning laughs and...

To all those who came out to cheer in person and virtually! It meant a lot to me!


Congrats to my Teammates and to all competitors! (You were all so marvelous!)

Rose came in 2nd, Mel in 5th, Moe came in 1st and 2nd!!!
I won 2nd in my class :)

And lastly...

What's marvelous is the time I got to spend with SuperFit on Sunday. Just me and him. Nothing more needs to be said about that <3


What about you?

What's been marvelous for you?
