Marvelous in my Monday – a wedding celebration, new workouts&sunbathing


22. July 2013 by swissfitchick

Happy Monday friends!!

Thank you Katie for Hosting MIMM once more!!


Let’s jump right into the weekend recap without further small talk.

Friday was my day off, and also the civil marriage of Sandro’s brother. I started my day with a good hour of Tara Stile’s yoga sessions, I absolutely love it!!

Fueled up with my favorite pancake recipe. I knew there wouldn’t be lunch, so I wanted to make sure my belly is full!

Curd Cheese Pancakes

Dolled up before the ceremony, summerstyle. I made the hair first – you know the donuts? SO convenient for summer and to create a bigger bun.

Then celebrating with a huge BBQ party, friends and drinks!! It was lovely and so much fun. Gotta love the Summernights!

We came home late and I passed out as soon as I touched my pillow. Sleeping in was much needed. When I got up, I took advantage of the morning breeze and went out for a run, followed by Jill’s Birthday Workout! Oh my. INTENSE. I try to add in one workout a week where I do something completely new or just something I don’t usually do in my workout routine. So this weekend it was this Jillfit workout and a few rounds on the TRX. SO SORE.

I love Jill’s blog, she has the BEST and most simple ways to explain how to train effectively, how to lead a healthy lifestyle and to be true to you. I read all her articles, she’s such an inspiration!!

Saturday was spent at the lake. What else? Summer Weekends here just always look like this. Workout, a swim, breakfast, sunbathing, a swim, reading, chatting, eating, a swim. And then hitting a little BBQ at home.

I mixed my salad greens with my favorite summer dressing: 1 handful rasperries, 1 tbsp honey mustard, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp apple vinegar, 1 tbsp olive oil, juice of half a lemon, pepper, dill, parsley, ginger, chives and a dash of sea salt. Blend all. So fresh and delicious!

Sunday was lake time again…..sorry, so boring. A little fotoshooting happened….


…and we met this lovely family!!


I took my agenda with me, so I could plan out my workouts and a few meals for next week. I figured, that it is much easier to not overtrain if I plan my workouts and stick to the plan all week, no matter what. 2 restdays are planned!!

Blueberry Protein Pancakes…..

Starter was fresh Tuna Sashimi, they had it at the store, loved it!!

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. ‚'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
