First Things First – a survey


23. February 2013 by swissfitchick

Happy Saturday friends!! I hope you all had a great start into the weekend. It’s snowing here, what a surprise, uh?? Will it ever stop????? I want green leaves, flowers and sun. PLEASE!!!

So since there’s not too much to do outside (it’s freezing) except if you go snowboarding – and I won’t go since it’s even colder up in the mountains – I decided to do the FIRST THING survey today.

  • First thing you do when you wake up in the morning. 

I try to open my eyes and walk to the bathroom without hitting a wall or a doorframe (this happens to me, sometimes, yes. And yes, in a complete dry condition) – wash face, set timer, go back to bed or to the living room, meditate. I try not to look into messages, emails or social media before meditation, cause I want to do it with an ‘off mind’ and if I start checking on the stuff I won’t stop and my whole schedule is spoiled



  • First thing you reach for when you open the fridge. 

Chocolate and Almond Butter Lemon. I drink hot lemon water after meditating, every morning.


  • First thing you do when you get to the gym. 

Sign in and have a short chat with whoever is at the reception – hopefully my trainer 🙂 (oh, hi trainer!! :-))

  • First thing you do when you get home from work. 

Cursing because I have my hands and arms full of stuff – mail, grocery bag, keys, gymbag, handbag. I try to put my jacket and shoes to the place they belong to rather than just trow them in the corner or somewhere on the floor (I mean I am a grown-up now right…?) – then I make a cup of tea. If I am starving I run to the fridge and reach for a carrott or a hardboiled egg. These are my savers when I feel like fainting from hunger (ok, that might be alittle exaggerated).

  • First car. 

Renault Twingo. That is a pic from google. Mine looked scratched, full of stuff (clothes, tickets, empty drinking bottles, shoes etc.) and (a bit) dirty.


  • First car accident / traffic violation.

Hm. There are quite a few events that happened with my car. Nothing serious, more like the embarrassing blonde stuff….I touched a garage wall and the whole side was scratched. And then I got a several tickets because I parked on a forbidden place. I always thought nobody would notice. Why? I don’t know. I just thought. Or at least hoped….

  • First thing you wanted to be when you grew up.

Horse Whisperer. I was obsessed with horses and was riding them several times a week.

And if not, then hairdresser.


  • First beverage of choice.

Green Tea with lemon and ginger. And prosecco (is a beverage, right??)


  • First choice breakfast.

Oh no!!! I can not decide. I can’t!! Ok, it just has to be something with eggs. Pancakes. Or omelette. Or cocoa-cookie-dough. Sorry, I had to pick 3.

  • First choice dessert. 

Oh stop!! Ok, I do it quick: Swiss Chocolate ‘RAGUSA’ – the Milk one, not dark.

Or Kindereggs. Or chocolate mousse? Oh I know, McVities White Chocolate! But maybe also Oreos. 


  • First song that comes to mind. 

BIRDY, Skinny Love.

I absolutely LOVE this song, I can not get enough of it!!

  • First major purchase.

When I was a teenager I saved money and bought my first hi-fi system. I felt TOO COOL.

  • First job. 

Receptionist at a gym. The first REAL job was Flight Attendant with SWISSAIR.


  • First time you flew on a plane.

When I was 7 years old – we flew to Finland. The years before my parents couldn’t afford a flight and we only travelled inside Switzerland with the train.

So now it’s your turn!! Pick 2 questions and give an answer. Remember, you can only pick one breakfast and one dessert, ha 🙂

Happy weekend loves! I see you Monday for MIMM-Party, yeah!

  1. I wish I could get more into starting my day with hot lemon water, I heard it is so good for your stomach. loved learning a bit more about you!

    • Yes, it is! At least for me. I heard of some who can not do it, but for me it works big time. Since I do it, my stomach can handle food so much better. It literally flushes the organs right first in the morning.

    First car accident: i also scraped a garage wall. But: i somehow managed to get the car so close to the wall that i had to ask my nice (and very strong) italian neighbour to help me and he literally had to LIFT the car away frim the wall. I know. Dont say it. Total embarassment. A floor please open and swallow me moment.
    First job: McDonalds. When i was 16. For about 3 months.

    • Oh GOOOD! hahaha that is the BEST story. I had no idea! Gosh, I am glad I am not the only one 🙂 McD? oh well. We were youung and needed the money, right? Happy Saturday and Sunday love! ps. Schrib Dir grad no wägem 5. März!

    You look so different on your flight attendant card! Too funny! I’m a milk chocolate fan too! I know dark is healthier but I just love milk chocolate 🙂

  4. Love this survey Lucie! And Skinny Love, that song is awesome. Sounds like you start your day in the best way every morning 🙂

  5. Greta says:

    Oolala! Flight attendant!! I still wish to be one! I adore flight attendants – always gorgeous, smiling and attentive, oh and sexy!
    Gosh, thanks for this, Lucie! I’m so happy to know you better and better! And thank you for showing me how does Ragusa look like. It is similar to the dessert I make! Nom nom nom!

    Ok, my turn – first job, shop assistant! Boring. 😉
    The song that’s in my head today Robbie Williams’ “Candy” It just stuck after the gym!

    Have an awesome (of what’s left of) Sunday!

    • Well, believe me, the smile wasn’t always real 🙂 Being a Flight Attendant with an ED can be quite tricky!! And YES, your dessert looks like Ragusa and I would like to try yours!!!
      Candy is an awful stucker. I think it’s not the best one Robbie did, but well, maybe he’s just getting older, which is fine 🙂 Happy Rest-Sunday to you too!

    • Aaaaah, and now it’s stuck in my head too!!! Hey ho here she goes
      Either a little too high or a little too low ………alaalalalaa 🙂

  6. I love hot water with lemon in the morning, I also dry brush while sipping on it! It really sets the tone for my day + helps keep me in check for a healthy day! I swear the mornings I am rushed + skip my hot water with lemon I am so off! Its def. a necessity! Glad to see I am not the only one! One of my dream jobs would be to be a flight attendant for some time so I could fly around + meet new people all the time! Sounds like an awesome experience. Love + Shine CourtStar

    • I am so with you!! I can definitely tell the difference when I had it or when not. My IBS got so much better since I do this. It’s the perfect start of the day and it gives me good energy for a morning workout!!
