I mention it again, in case you didn’t notice yet – my new url is fitswisschick.com! Finally! More design updates and tweaks to follow!
This one will probably turn into a new version of WIAW, but instead of Wednesday it’s Weekend – I spent some time in the kitchen and have some drool-worthy pics for you! Perfect for today’s Monday Party thanks to my favorite Diva and her family!
I had a super quiet weekend without ANY plans and after last weekend’s cycling madness, it was so needed. Also, after a few rough days, it was nice to finally enjoy some peace for my mind. Even though I was totally jealous of many of my blogger friends who attended this years Healthy Living Summit. I SO wished I could be there!!
I started Friday morning off with a good HIIT session – Sprints at the lake, followed by running stairs in my home, followed by alternating bike sprints&jumping rope. Followed by an Outdoor Bootcamp class at lunch in the sun – that was definitely enough and screamed for a restday the next day!!
No doubt there was food to fuel, so I made my eggy oats for breakfast.
Saffron chicken with roasted pumpkin, a little cucumber salad and organic glutenfree crackers on the side for a late lunch.
We stayed in on Friday night and just enjoyed the relaxing time. Food: baked salmon with broccoli and avocado.
Saturday I….have not really an idea what I did. One thing, I cycled to my friend’s place for a girlschat over tea and magazines, cause she broke her foot and couldn’t get out.
Then I went downtown with the man to do some errands, and later rolled out my Yoga mat for a much needed Vinyasa Session, Stretching and Meditation.
I wore my Yoga Pants from Zimmerli of Switzerland – such GREAT quality, I absolutely love them. I swear, you don’t feel like you’re wearing anything in these! 🙂 So comfy! I am totally sorry for that mess in the background. I swear, it wasn’t me. Don’t give me that look, it’s true!
Sandro was out for a business event in the evening and I had a date with this babe…
I bought a huge kabocha squash, and prepared ALL of it! I couldn’t be more excited, I am officially obsessed by this vegetable. Cut it…
…or as a dessert with healthy protein chocolate dip. I swear, this is SO delicious, it tastes like cookies with chocolate cream. To DIE for. ….ooooorrrrr enjoy it in a destroyed protein pancake postworkout. I hit a heavy weights session on Sunday morning and was starving for them. Despite the ugly look, they tasted so good. Topped with Almond Butter Syrup (sugarfree syrup, 1 tsp ab, water).
I will do some tweaks on this recipe so they don’t fall apart and will post it soon. Besides that, I will do a little Pumpkin Recipe Roundup next Friday with all these goodies, so stay tuned!
I had a blast on Sunday. The weather was rainy and nasty, so after breakfast I digged up my photobox filled with old pictures of me….oh my. I SWEAR guys, I HAVE to make a Throwback post soon – you are all going to have such a GOOD laugh! Sheeesh, I couldn’t believe what I considered fashion 20 years ago….too funny, Sandro and me couldn’t stop laughing. Also, some precious, fun and beautiful memories came back. I LOVE spending Sunday like this!
A sneak peek…
These are harmelss….believe me, I got some good ones.
Late afternoon, we went for a rainy walk, where we spotted this beauty….
…and then sat down for dinner.
And to finish off this weekend and post….some more japanese deliciousness for dessert.
Happy Monday everyone!
