Hello from Spain!


2. October 2013 by swissfitchick


Since it is or favorite day of the week I wanted to check in quickly and see what’s going on in the cyber wordl!

I hope you are all well and having a fabulous week so far. I am excited to see all the guest posts going up here, love all these brilliant writers! Thank you all again for your time and effort!

I am in Spain since 10 days now, and I can definitely not complain. We had beautiful weather almost every day and enjoying the beach and the sun to the fullest. We stayed at Sandro’s parents beach house near Malaga all these days and yesterday we drove along the coast to Marbella, where we will stay in a nice hotel until tomorrow and make a short trip to Ronda which is said to be beautiful.

The vacation so far was what it has to be in my books – relaxing and doing things I love.

Getting up to catch the sunset and a workout….

People may wonder why I would get up early to workout on a vacation – fact is: I love it. I obviously love these breathtaking and beautiful views I catch when the sun rises, I love to have the privilege to have a huge beach on my own as a playground for my workouts, I LOVE to move first thing when I get up and I love to sit down with my food when the air is still fresh and I don’t have to rush to the office or anywhere else but can enjoy the morning hours, my favorite time of the day.

Besides that, it’s so nice to switch up my workout routine here a bit from the ususal. I definitely miss the heavy iron, but I really enjoy creating my own bodyweight strength circuits and the blast through my HIIT sessions with stair sprints or sprints at the beach (brutal!).

Breakfast happens on the terrasse of the beach house in peace.


You bet I roasted some squash the first day I arrived here! Unfortunately they did not have any kabocha….


More. Just to make sure….

Strawberry/Spinach/Protein Smoothies with dried Goji Berries

I did sleep in, don’t worry, and took restdays. Then I grabbed the Yogamat and went down to the beach for my meditation, stretching and soft Yoga. Being there completely on my own is pure bliss for me.


When lunchtime arrives, it’s beachtime. Sleeping, reading, swimming, walks along the shore and hours and hours of FRISBEE. I LOVE it.

Let’s not forget dinner…..,most of the meals we prepared at home which is always the best if you ask me. I save the pics for next week’s WIAW, but ut definitely wasn’t too exciting – meat with roasted veggies, chicken wraps, baked codfish or salmon etc. – but let’s have a look at the dinners we had out!

Liquid 'food' - just as good. Especially when they are as big as my head. Cheers!

A mix of Spanish tapas, Ceasar Salad with prawns and a izza with smoked ham.

Sometimes it’s just so GOOD to eat 1-2 slices of pizza. Even though my tummy grumbled and was upset after, it was worth it – so delicious. I refused to eat the croutons and the dressing though. Ugh.

Somehow the picture of my amazing fettucine with seafood plate go lost – so sad, it looked incredible and tasted like heaven. I guess I will do a huge WIA in Spain next week to update you with more food 🙂

Besides food and workouts there was some extreme shopping on a cloudy Saturday….


XL woolen sweater, white basic tee and XL scarf – everything from Zara / black skinny jeans with leather patches from Pull&Bear / Lace Boots with fur from Marypaz

Well, I have to prepare for cold weather, right?? A fashion post will follow as soon as I am back – I created some cool outfits to share with you!!

Creating a new recipe…

Raw Protein Chocolate Truffles

It’s so easy:

Mash everything together until well combined.

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
