Marvelous in my Monday – Pancakes, Snow and Iceskating


25. February 2013 by swissfitchick

Good morning and happy first day of the week! Ok, mine is not so happy since I have to go to school today and it sucks I don’t like it. Oh well, it’s only one day a week and ends by end of March, so no big deal. Thanks to Katie the day gets still marvelous because of the MIMM-Party on her blog!!


Ok let’s get started with some weekend talk. Nothing really exciting happened to be honest. Saturday morning I went for a run with Sandro we did not do this in a long time together. It was freezing and snowing but the fresh air was really good! I did this abwork after, which is really hard and challenging!

We kind of forgot breakfast, each one of us was busy doing things….Sandro was doing laundry, I did a long stretching session, then ironed the laundry, did my nails….about 2 hours later when it was already past lunch, we sat down for ‘breakfast’ πŸ™‚

We headed downtown later on since we wanted to get some CD’s. Before buying them we had an earfull….

People look at me if I was the weirdest person on earth when I am taking selfie’s.

I love buying CD’s. It’s so old-fashioned in these days, since all the downloading hype is going on. I love the good old CD’s.

We strolled a bit through town, went grocery shopping, had a predinner-drink in a bar and then dinner around 8 – pretty late, but the day was just like that. Everything a bit later than usual. I had no appetite and only went for a green salad with prawns and seaweed.

IMG_2864We opened this bottle I got from my boss 2 weeks ago. He wanted me to try it with Sandro. It is Β VERY good one, but I am just not a wine person. I hardly ever drink wine and also from this one I just had a few sips, but oh, they were good!

IMG_2865Sunday morning we were up early and decided to go iceskating first thing!! Normally, Sunday is Runday or Restday, but changing routines once in a while is so refreshing, right?? I love iceskating but most of the time the rink is so crowded so we thought going up early (9:15) would be good and it might not have much people. We were right, it was great and huge fun!


As you can see here’s a hidden great of talent!!!

Back home from the cold we sat down and had breakfast. I was superhappy that I precooked the pancakes so we could dig rightΒ in! I made the Ginger-Pear-Pancakes from Heather and topped them with all the fresh berries I could find at the supermarket and some homemade applesauce. YUMMYNESS!!!!

The day went on with laziness, a short run in the snow, studying (blah) and mealprep, later of course typical Sundaynight dinner including movie – no change here…. πŸ™‚

Pancakes prep

Perfect Fit Protein Pancakes. 2-3 times breakfast – fresh berries to add.

  1. Awww! You look so FLIPPIN’ cute on the ice!! Lord, I haven’t been ice skating in…like TEN YEARS?! At least that! I honestly can’t even remember the last time…I have absolutely NO coordination/grace when it comes to skating…ice or regular…hence the reason I can’t remember, I probably blocked it out of my memory! Lol

    I know I already told you on Twitter, but you seriously made me the happiest girl today when I saw you made the pancakes! I was totally giddy! Did you use the fresh ginger?

    I don’t really buy CD’s anymore…I’ve succumbed to the dark side and download most of my music these days…or I cheat and just listen to Pandora!

    And me? Pick a favorite pancake?!!? I refuse!!! LOL

    • Ohhh you should go iceskating!! It’s so much fun and as you can see I am not a flexible artist on the ice either -at all!! But that’s not important, the fun is the point πŸ™‚
      YES I loved the pear pancakes and the ginger was the hit ingredient. Perfect Sundaymorning meal!! Happy Monday Sweetheart!

    What a perfect weekend! I love the ice skating pictures! You just look so happy πŸ™‚ I am the most uncoordinated person on ice ever. I haven’t been skating in forever but I am guaranteed to fall down multiple times at least. Happy Monday Lucie!

  3. I can’t even remember the last time I went ice skating! I did figure skating as a kid, but I definitely got out of the habit of going once in a while. I don’t even want to know how many times I would fall down if I tried it today!

  4. Ice skating is so much fun! I have not been in years, though :(.

    Those pancakes look awesome. My favorite pancakes are just simple whole wheat pancakes or peanut butter pancakes with chocolate chips. Yum!

    It sounds like you had a marvelous weekend. Happy Monday :).

  5. Ice skating! Omigoodness it’s been forever since I went, and I definitely miss it. Being Canadian, I think it’s pretty much a requirement to love skating, and I’ve been doing it for pretty much as long as I can remember… now if only I could find my skates πŸ˜‰

    And when it comes to cd’s, I have to admit that I abandoned the old-fashioned route and started downloading most of my music, mostly because I have a horrible habit of not taking care of cd’s and they just ended up getting scratched and lost.

    Happy Monday, love!!

    • Oh yes, you Canadians should be pro’s in skating – go figure πŸ™‚
      I am not good in taking care of my CD’s either, they even lay around in the kitchen sprinkled with pancake dough, whooops! But it’s my kitchenmusic and I need them!

    How fun to go ice skating!! I haven’t been in forever & really don’t trust myself not to fall right on my boo-tay! A good friend burned me a few CD’s recently but it’s been forever since I purchased one! Browsing in the store sounds like fun though! Happy Monday!

  7. Greta says:

    Aww, you look so happy ice-skating! I love it too! Only I have no chance here, which is sad!
    My absolutely favorite pancakes are the ones YOU taught me! With some nut butter. Yummm! πŸ˜€
    CDs – neah. I don’t even know where my old ones are!! Do you remember there used to be tapes!! Gosh, I’m old!
    Also I’ve stopped following BodyRock tv since Zuzka left! Not the fan of this girl! She’s too skinny to be my role model…

    • Well ok, you have to fly here and we go skating together! It’s so much fun! Oh I feel so honored that you love my pancakes πŸ™‚ I am totally with you, I think she is way too skinny. But her workouts rock so I just ignore the other part…..

  8. I have been dying to go ice skating, looks like a blast

  9. sloanepitman says:

    You are SO cute! Your weekend with Sandro looks like so much fun, and I want to eat those pancakes like, now. Love you!!

  10. Aww, Lucie, you look adorable on the ice! What a fun Sunday morning activity, and even more perfect when combined with delicious pancakes afterward. πŸ˜€ They look amazing, actually–I’m definitely going to check out that recipe!

    I can’t remember the last time I bought a CD…it’s been years! I miss the days when I’d spend hours listening to different albums at Barnes and Noble bookstore. I actually can’t think of a place near me where I can do that now!

    Happy Monday, lovely!! ❀

    Oh wait, I almost forgot the important pancake question! I don't think I can pick just one favorite because there are so many I love. You already know my go-to recipe, but I think my absolute favorite in regards to flavor (not considering nutrition, because they're super rich) are my mom's Swedish pancakes. They. Are. UH. MAAZING. πŸ˜‰


    • Exactly, the listening part in the store is the best! Watching people and listening music – perfect! πŸ™‚ oh yumm, your Mpm’s pancakes sound to die for!!! Maybe she would like to share the recipe one day? I mean, I never even ate REAL pancakes!!! xxxx

  11. came through Katies Blog- Its so cool you still buy cds. I used to until couple years ago but now noo..its awesome and keep it going girl. those pancakes look delicious..

  12. Lisa says:

    Ah ice skating is so fun! I haven’t done it in forever! Now I really want to…
    You look like you’re having a blast, which how can you not πŸ˜‰
    Weekend pancakes are always the best!
    Oh man, taking selfies in public can be a bit of a risk…once when I was driving, I took one and my friend saw me, and it was really embarrassing. Okay, that was the worst story ever, sorry for making you read that.
    Happy Monday beauty!

    • Yes, you should go, it’s so much fun!!
      Oh my God, i LOVE that story haha πŸ™‚ I can totally relate. My boyfriend is always hiding when I do that he doesn’t want people to know that we’re together haha πŸ™‚ happy monday to you too girl!!

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. β€š'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
