Marvelous in my Monday – Birthday Bash and a giveaway!!


13. May 2013 by swissfitchick

Happy Monday!

Since this is going to be a marvelous post, it fits perfectly in the MIMM campaign hosted by the Healthy Diva!!


First of all: Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!! You ALL made my day by your lovey birthday comments and tweets, I was so happy about each and every one!! You’re the best!!  And because of that, I decided to spoil you just as I was spoiled on my birthday. At the end of this post I am hosting a GREAT giveaway, make sure you check it out!!

Sandro and me spent wonderful days in the mountains. The weather wasn’t as beautiful as we wished it to be, but we definitely had sun, and the perfect rainy program too. Packing happened in a hurry, including the typical ‘last minute squeezes’….


The journey went well accompaigned by some good sounds….IMG_3491

Unfortunately I got sick during the journey – my tummy doesn’t like turns at all and we had tons of ’em driving the pass. When arriving, I crawled into bed early to be fit and bright for my birthday.

It started off with a run in the sun….


Followed by breakfast on the perch in the sun and preseeeeents!!



MY present for myself!


Got spoiled by the man

We headed off to the mountain to enjoy breathtaking views….

Up there, we shared birthday cake apple pie – I gave back the whipped cream, because it makes my tummy turn, but I definitely ENJOYED the piece of this deliciousness topped with vanilla sauce!!


And later….going out for dinner!!


We got a fantastic recommendation for a restaurant in a hotel near the appartment and let’s say, we didn’t get disappointed at all, I loved it!! I save all the food pictures for Wednesday, the WIAW birthday edition!!

The day after was cloudy and rainy. I took it as my restday, and we slept in. Breakfast was the reason to wake up….

Eggwhite-Chicken-Omelett. Cherry Tomaotes

We took a long walk in the rain and then went back to the hotel where we had dinner the night before and checked in in the SPA!! It was such a beautiful one, with a wonderful view.

It was such a nice and relaxing day. Completely chilled, we went back to the appartment and cooked up a nice dinner.

Cooked scallops, prawns, steamed asparagus

After dinner dessert – my absolute favorite Swiss Bisquit:


On Saturday, we drove home. Arriving there, I squeezed in an hour strength-session before I had my get together with friends in the evening. It was the cherry on top – celebrating, laughing, chatting, clinking glasses and just enjoying the time.


Prosecco on ice, Tapas, Wine, good company

  1. I would LOVE to try the Dark Chocolate Cashew Life Bar. I mean, I am a girl, so naturally I love anything chocolate! But dark chocolate combined with cashews? Heaven! I think these would be delicious!

    The tea that sounds the best to me is the decaf vanilla black tea. Caffiene doesn’t really agree with me, so I never get to drink any of my old favourite black teas (I had a huge collection – French breakfast, about 5 different chais, English breakfast, etc), but it would be so nice to have a taste of an old favourite!

  2. The vanilla chai tea looks fabulous!

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
