Is it weekend yet?


23. November 2012 by swissfitchick

Good morning! I hope you all had a great start into this weekend. I had my last detox day yesterday. This week was a great success! Not only is my skinny jeans lose, I also felt so good all week. No bloated belly, no cramps, no cravings and I felt energized and satisfied. I talked to Danielle and I will continue eating like this. I see that my tummy is happy with this diet so I’ll stay with it. It’s not that big of a change anyway. I just cut down dairy as much as possible and grains, sugar and salt. Which of course does not mean that I won’t eat it at all anymore – but just not on a daily basis and not in my self cooked meals. It was a great variety of good food!



Mashed Sweet Potato and beans

Avocado, Sunflower Seeds, carrots

Quinoa with egg and steamed veggies

Hummus and kale chips

Spinach-Berry-Protein Smoothie

Spinach Salad with chicken and Avocado

All of those meals are going to happen more around here in the future!

But you know…..tonight I am going to run a city race (5,5km) and after that I will have a huge gulp of Prosecco, haha! 🙂
And now that my workout routine ist starting off again, I have to make sure my gadgets are always with me when I travel back and forth Basel and Zurich. These are always with me in every workout!
Watch, iPod, Timer

Yesterday Friday was a good day. When I got up, I had no plan at all. I really have no idea when this happened the last time. No workout, no appointment, no laundry, no nothing. So I went for a walk first thing followed by Yoga. After breakfast I headed to the post office to send off the Swiss-Food package for Jessie!!

In the afternoon I started baking. This is always exciting as I never know how that turns out….I am not very talented in the kitchen you have to know. But this time it turned out great ( ok, the recipes were REALLY easy)! I tried these delicious Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Balls posted by Amanda the other day. I adapted them a bit and call them:


5TBSP Granola
2TBSP grated coconut
2 scoops Protein Powder taste of your choice
1TBSP Stevia
2TSP of each: nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, gingerbreadspice
5 medjool dates
chocolate chips

Put all the ingredients into the blender and mix until crumbly. If it is not sticky enough, add a tiny splash of water – tiny!! Take out the dough, and form balls. Put in the freezer. They are to die for!

Buckwheat cereal

After that I baked this Low Carb Protein Bread, the one I got the mix sended. It is REALLY good. I love bread but I don’t eat it a lot. I think that’s a great option if I crave bread!

Later on some Starbucksblogging was happening. Gotta love that. It’s kind of cosy to sit there, sipping tea, letting the thoughts flow, writing and watching people 🙂

Before going home I strolled through some shops with Xmas decoration. Oh how I love it! I am not a fan of the feast itself, but I SO love the time before christmas and everything connected to it.

So this ‘no-plan-day’ turned into quite a busy one! But now it’s weekend, right? Right??
I’ll be back on Monday for MIMM! Gotta tell you about the race and weekend funs!

Happy Weekend everyone!

No filter. And no one ever tells me again bullshit like that CrossFit makes me look like a man. Left side, 1998 (19y), ~60kg, in an abusive relationship, fueled by a daily dangerous skinny drug cocktail which almost killed me and hours of cardio, no lifting and an oh so fucked up mindset. Right side, 19 years later today (39y), ~68kg (~8kg gainzzz!!). Recovered from 20 years of extreme disordered eating and drugs; and passionate about CrossFit. A healthy mind (pretty much at least 😏😉), a healthy body, freedom and a joy of life I had never experienced before. To be alive and healthy is a fucking miracle. I've always been a stubborn kid and I never half-assed things - contrary, I went and still go full-ass with everything I did and do - which also led me to extreme addictions. But it also allowed me to fight through suicidal thoughts and hurdles. Yet, if you want to overcome something so incredibly strong and stubborn like an Eating Disorder you have to be stronger and more stubborn and to want it with all your heart and to give everything you got. If you are willing to let go in favour of your health, then get your shit together, you can do it. It's possible, I'm the living proof. Trust your strength and never stop believing. And for fucks sake, no one ever goes trying to make me feel embarrassed about my muscles again. I'm not. I'm perfectly ok, just like everyone else. #nojudging #crossfit @crossfit #fightforit #muscles #health #trusttheprocess #believe #eatingdisorderrecovery #awareness #support #loveyourself #bodyimage #fullass #getshitdone #loveyourbody #recovery #addictivepersonality #drugs #overcoming #bulímia #anorexìa #sweatpink #fitfluential
