Marvelous – it’s my PARTY!


2. December 2013 by swissfitchick

Hey Guys!

Welcome to the 1st MIMM of December!! Unbelievable. I hope you had a marvelous weekend! Marvelous is this Monday as well thanks to my favorite DIVA!

My weekend started off on Friday with some Cardio and a omg-kick-ass GRIT class (HA! RHYME!)! Seriously, I am SO scared everytime I am about to join that class and it has its reasons – I was nearly dead when it was over. But it’s only 30 minutes so you can really give it all and it’s so cool!!

There’s not a lot I can say about it but this: IT WAS A BLAST. I appologize for the many silly pics here, but seriously, the whole event was just so hilarious that Sandro lost his voice and my abs are sore from laughing.

I think I was screaming for paaaaaancakes here……IMG_5681Ok, so……thing was, we wanted to go back to Zurich on Saturday to be home and relax. We curled up in the train with warm tea, lack of sleep and carby healthy breakfast. Like ya know – to satisfy that carb craving after a long night.

AND we went to see the opening of the christmas market at the lake! We have several really beautiful christmas markets in Zurich and Basel and this one is just a 5 minutes walk from our house. So I am officially in holiday season mood!

Sunday morning was absolutely STUNNING and we went out to join the Bootcamp Class. It was SO good to have the sun in my face and the soreness all over my body!!

And you bet I fueled with my favorite version of pancakes…..with added blueberries! I get asked a lot how I make the chocolatized yogurt/quark – it’s the most simple thing in the world: Mix greek yogurt or quark with 1-2 tbsp raw cacao powder and stevia. DONE! And it tastes like the best choco pudding, promised.

I’m a little torn if I should like it or not to be honest, I definitely liked the first part better. But since Jennifer Lawrence, Lenny Kravitz and Woody Harrelson made a constant appearance, I was all fine.

It was already almost time for dinner when we arrived home…..

And you bet I was in bed early again – believe me, after 30 you just need 2 days to recover from a long night 🙂

Do you love to go out and dance? Even though I don’t do it as much as I used to, I LOVE it. Once started you have to drag me off the dancefloor.

Do you have a stronger carb craving after a long night too?

Have you seen Catching Fire already? How did you like it?

  1. I’m convinced that you and I are long-lost sisters — dancing has always been one of my FAVOURITE things to do, and I was almost always the last one on the dance floor. And you better believe I crave carbs like crazy after a long night! Heck, I crave them like crazy even if I don’t get enough sleep.

    Hope you’re week is off to a great start, love ❤

  2. I always have a strong carb craving after a long night oh my geeeeeeeee!!! Looks like you had a total blast. The snow and those pancakes…ahhh so pretty 🙂

    Oh my gosh, those outfits are pure amazingness.
    Love it.
    I totally crave all the carbs after a night out with a few drinks. It happens every time. I don’t mind though. As long as the night was fun, it’s totally worth those cravings.
    Looks like it was such a fun time!

  4. Lucie, why are you pretending that you were out at a party- we all know you dress like that always anyway. Geeze.

    I FOUND QUARK. Well I found it online….I will hunt it down! 😉

  5. Julie says:

    Love those outfits and now I can’t wait for our Christmas market!

  6. You look SO freakin cute in that get up! Like OMG I am loving your outfits, SO CUTE! Looks like a fun party, wish I could have been there to SING and dance all night long!! Just know that I have to recover for two days after a “good” party and I think most of us can say the same. Lovin your eats <333 Happy Week Ahead!

  7. That looks like such a night!! While I don’t go dancing too often anymore, I really do love to hit the dance floor once in a while! And yeesss to carb cravings…drinking + not getting enough sleep means that the next day, non-stop carb cravings. Oh well, it’s worth 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
