Good morning everyone! I hope you are off to a good start and that the weekend treated you well. Thanks to the beautiful Mamma Katie with her little Rocco Angel for hosting MIMM today!
There is so much I could babble about today, but I will focus on 3 highlights of this weekend.
1. Open Air Cinema
2. Dinner at friends
Every Summer, there are Open Air Cinemas everywhere in Switzerland. We have one of the biggest in Zurich, actually just a 5 minute walk from our house at the lake. Sandro got tickets for his birthday and on Friday we went. But not before we had dinner of course….
It was chilly cause it rained for 2 days, so after more than 5 weeks I had to dig out my jeans and boots. We watched ARGO – I liked it a lot.
The scenery of the cinema is beautiful and I love that it is equipped with a nice bar and different food stations.
Such a nice date night out!
Since Friday was LEG DAY,
and I was so SORE that I could hardly sit down in the bathroom I did Triceps/Biceps and Abs on Saturday morning followed by 30 minutes Spinning Sprints. For the strength part I worked with free weights (barbell and dumbells), plus the TRX. I have’t used it in a while and now started to include it in my routines again. I so love this tool, it’s super multifunctional and a great addition to the heavy weights.
In the evening, we were invited to one of my best friends, Jonas, with his girlfriend and little son in Basel. It was beautiful weather again and we had dinner outside on the patio. Jonas’ menu was brilliant and definitely MY taste. We had a starter of giant scallops…..
Followed by roasted codfish, green beans and rice. I skipped the sauce but that didn’t have any influence on the taste – it was delicious.
Paired with a little wine….
….and long, good talks and laughter. Dessert was a piece of this one:
It was too dark to take a pic at that time.
We decided to get up early on Sunday to hit the trail. There aren’t many weekends we spend in Basel and I wanted to take advantage to run with the man. This route is only a 5 minute jog from my house and I absolutely love it. It is a trail in and out the forest, with hills and stairs and different exercise stations along the way. It is one of my favorite workouts to do!
I fueled immediately with a yummy Vanilla-Blueberry-Protein-Smoothie….
These are my highlights!
Happy Monday everyone!
