Hello and good morning!!
I hope your Monday is off to a good start – if not, let’s try to make it MARVELOUS together with our favorite diva!
Now this weekend was kind of the first ‘regular’ weekend as a single. And I must say, it wasn’t too bad. It actually was pretty good. I swear, it’s all about what you make out of it – and of course what you get back. I can not complain about too little attention to be honest, but most importantly, I have the most amazing friends. So Friday afternoon I travelled to Zurich to pack some more stuff – I will leave everything there until I have a new big appartment in Basel. But I need some of the clothes and other stuff.
In the evening, I met up with Anne, one of my Besties in Zurich and we enjoyed drinks at the Lounge down at the lake – one of my favorite places in Zurich. I used to spend many evenings there with Sandro. These moments hurt – but I face them, cause I want to spread MY new memories. And I did have a wonderful time despite the emotions.
We then went to Anne’s place and cooked an amazing dinner! It was an improvised recipe from my crazy brain – Salmon-Asparagus-Quinoa Bake. It was absolutely delicious – despite the horrible pictures!! I went back to my still-home to sleep over- Sandro was in the Alps over the weekend. My morning was spent with weights – shoulders, chest, glutes. Ouch. But good. Postworkout breakfast: Protein Pancakes! I mixed 3 eggwhites with Vanilla Protein Powder, added 2 tbsp of quark (greek yogurt works) and cinnamon. Topped with more quark. Yum.
In the afternoon, I met up with a friends’ couple of Sandro and me. They are actually his friends, but they became dear friends to me too in these 4,5 years and I am so happy we can stay in touch. They came with their baby girl and we went for a long stroll, chats and drinks at the lake. I travelled back to Basel late afternoon and my evening was spent in the oldest of the oldest but most comfortable sweatpants from H&M. LOVE them.
More fish happened for dinner: codfish with roasted asparagus in coconut oil and salsa. Healthy bowl of deliciousness! Dessert looks weird, but it’s my favorite currently: No fat quark with stevia and cacao. Talk about decadent chocolate pudding! And yes, I eat this out of a mug. So, SUNDAY! I had a FitFriends Date with my Crossfit girl and neighbour Vanessa at 10am. She is so freaking fit and I love to workout with her. We truly understand how to motivate each other and still have a ton of fun while
almost dying exercising. We went for a 8km run in the forest and then practised Crossfit skills in my street. Double Unders and Handstand – omg. Please laugh at the hilarious pic here. Where the HECK did my feet go?? LOL. And the hair. Seriously, the HAIR!
Tonight we’re going to Crossfit class and add another little skill training after – I was quite pleased that at least I could do a few times 1 Single Under, 1 Double Under in a row. AND I managed to do a handstand on my own. Baby Steps. To be
After this session I ran some errands until I was close to chewing my arm off. Lunch had to happen.
The afternoon was spent with Jonas, my best childhood friend and his little son, and then I went back home to do meal prep and blog work. Just the usual Sundays. Dinner was simple but one of my favorites: Smoked salmon, roasted asparagus and spinach salad. Dessert: More Cacao Quark and a Sesame-Chocolate Cracker
Now I know I promised the recipe of the Coconut Oatmeal Bake for today, but since this post is already so long, I postpone it for tomorrow – watch out! It really is pretty amazing and delicious and the most perfect thing to prep ahead. Or to spend time with more important stuff while the thing is
burning baking in the oven.
Happy first day of the week Lovies!
