MIMM – Crying and dancing


28. April 2014 by swissfitchick

Happy Monday!

I hope you are all well and rested from the weekend. Thanks to Katie we make today a marvelous Monday!



Oh my weekend! It was – interesting. Let me explain.

I had my good friend and blog supporter over on Thursday night – he offered to cook for me cause all my blogstuff just takes a lot longer than usually planned. I didn’t complain. He made penne a la siciliana and I added some salmon. Red wine, chats – good times. LachsFriday after a morning at the gym hitting chest/back and shoulders, I went to the hairdresser –Lucie– had a coffee date on my own – always when I happen to drink coffee (which is rare enough) – I think of my sweet blend. Coffee– then had my nails done –Nails– and in the evening took the train to Zurich to meet up with Anne. We went to Dean and David and then enjoyed an outdoor concert at the lake of one of my favorite SWISS bands! Seriously, listen to them – they make great sound and I am proud that they are locals.

pegasusI slept in my ‘old’ appartment and Sandro was also there. We agreed to go out for breakfast in the morning to talk. When I woke up I wanted to run at the lake. So that’s what I did.

I miss it so much. So so much.

I miss it so much. So so much.

The ‘date’ with Sandro started awkward – as awkward as it is when you first talk as ‘ex’. But all of a sudden the ice broke. Yup, I started crying in the middle of the cafe we sat in and so did he. We decided to go down to the lake for a walk.

What can I say? We talked for 2 hours. It was wonderful. Cruel. Clarifying. Touching. Sweet. Heartbreaking. Good. Freeing. Sad.

We talked and walked and sat and hugged and cried. Seriously, when I once start crying it never stops. The same goes for Sandro. Crybabies.

I went back to Basel later and while sitting in the train I understood what I miss the most about our relationship – the familiarity. In the end, there might not have been a lot of fire and passion left, but I always felt at home with Sandro. Only my brother knows me as well as Sandro does. We both know each other inside and out – I can tell from his movements/look/vibrancy what’s going on inside of him. He was there in my worst moments and in the happiest. But yes – we probably were more like best friends than lovers. Still – missing this feeling of familiarity causes the feeling of loneliness.IMG_5084Thank God I had a plan with friends to party in the evening. I checked my outfit – which you can’t really see here, sorry 🙂 I wasn’t aware of the bad light. It’s a black skirt with a black Indigo-blouse and brown leather boots. Simple. Good thing is that you can’t see my after-cry-messed-up-make-up. Lucie LucieI had dinner with Mom – I made lamb lettuce with smoked trout and a savory egg/mushroom mugcake.Salad

– and then met up with Nicole, a friend to have some predrinks before we went off to the party.

Nicole und LucieIt was a good night with tons of chats with people from my past and a bit of dancing. But seriously folks – some guys honestly suck at their pick up lines. I talked for a while with a guy who was really funny and charming, but some of the others….geeeeeze.

I talked to one of my male besties about it the next day and he suggested following: ‘ Did you sit on some sugar? Because you have a really sweet ass!’ – REALLY??!! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!!!!!! Nicole und LUcieI slept in on Sunday morning and when I woke up, my whole body hurt. I really don’t know what’s going on but I feel like I have pain everywhere. Oh body, what’s your message? Please recover.

I had a really delicious smoothies ready – Growing Naturals Vanillla Protein Powder, PB2Chocolate, Flaxseed, 1 Apple, TVP and water. So creamy rich and tasty!! SMoothieRest of Sunday it was raining and raining and I spent the day at the office to get some paper work done. Grocery shopping, a little meal prep and then dinner…..

Codfish/Salmon Skewer with roasted asparagus and broccoli

…not to forget dessert!

So tell me – what was the most awkward/terrible/idiotic/funny pick-up line you ever got?

Favorite smoothie combo?

Favorite song on your iPod currently?

Have a wonderful Monday everyone!!

    I can totally relate to losing that familiar feeling! Just be patient it goes away 🙂

  2. Awwr! Some day we WILL have coffee together! Either here or there… and there will be chocolate and hugs and tears… of happiness 😉 Speaking of tears, I had my own little meltdown at the end of last week, and while it left me with blotchy eyes and a snotty nose, it was definitely needed. Sometimes nothing helps like a good cry. Hope you’re feeling back to your smiley self now, love!

    • Yes, yes, yes!! We will!! And I am so sorry ot hear you had a metldown. But as you say, sometimes crying feels so good!! I want to come over and give you the biggest hug!!

  3. I can definitely relate to the losing the familiar feeling like – an ex of mine and I dated on and off for 5 years and were friends for a year before that, so at the time I didn’t think anyone else ever could know me as well as he did. I let the relationship go on for waaay longer than it should have – deep down I knew we weren’t well matched as a couple, but I was comfortable with where the relationship was. eventually though, I was able to build that familiarity with someone else, and it’ll be the same for you – chin up love, and I’m happy to hear that you had a fun weekend with friends! ❤

    • Aww Sam, your words make me feel so much better. It’s so hard to believe that there is someone else who could give me that same feeling. Thank you so much!!

  4. Anita says:

    What a weekend! Stay strong. U got this. You look fantastic too!

  5. Sending you plenty of hugs Lucie…it can only going get better from here on. As hard as it is to believe, there are still a few guys who exist that don’t come with terrible pick-up lines. Speaking of which, one of the worst I’ve heard yet is: “Is your daddy a terrorist..because baby you the bomb”—> cringeworthy!!

  6. Geez! I’ve had the same body pains and can’t figure out what’s going on. I think it could be seasonal allergies, but it’s getting rather old! Yum! That smoothie looks so good:) My favorite smoothie is definitely Sunwarrior Warrior Blend vanilla, spinach, Amazing Grass Cacao Superfood, 1 tablespoon coconut butter, matcha green tea, acai powder, maca, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk- YUM:) Hope things get better for you soon:) ❤

  7. Ahhh Lucie. As tough as it was with Sandro, at least you can pull apart the beauty of the relationship you shared- the best friend notion.

    It takes a strong person to realise this and I think it’s a positive step in closing this chapter.

    I can’t wait until we can go out and get hammered together- we’d have a blast! How do apples taste in a smoothie? I’ve had it once but it was microwaved lie crazy beforehandb

    • Thank you my sweet Aussie friend. Means a lot!! I give my best to go back to my cheerful self soon.
      AND YES – we need to get hammered together!! Laura is coming to visit me next week. For real. Join us?? We need to twerk!!

  8. cottercrunch says:

    oh wow! talk about some closure!! and i’m so glad you talked, cried, and more. so needed!! and thank god for male friends, love that pick up line!! LOL!

  9. Sometimes you just gotta cry!!! Let it out girl.

    I’ve had some epicly horrible pick up lines, but i’m usually pretty wasted when I get them which means there is a 0% chance I’ll remember them in the morning…probably a good thing!

  10. Pick up line: “If you were President, you’d be BABErham Lincoln.” Someone said this to me. Seriously.

    Glad you got some closure… mind if I come help cheer you up in person? 😉

    And will you make me that smoothie???

    • Oh for EFF’s sake!!! Seriously, what is this?? Cringe!!

      Oh lady – you are the BEST cheer up I can think of!!! And I will make smoothies all day if you want!!

  11. Wow thanks for sharing that vulnerable moment! That sounds downright awful. You two are so strong though…you could easily get back together just because not having that familiarity is so painful. But you’re staying strong and working through the pain – I really admire you. You looked great for your night out if that helps 🙂 I don’t think I’ve ever been hit on with a pickup line! I say that now and then three hours from now I’m definitely going to comment again saying WAIT I forgot this one….haha.

    • Thank you so much Lauren!! Yes, it definitely would be comfortable to just go back to the same old thing – but it wouldn’t be right, just ‘lazy’. It will get better I know!
      Did you remember a pick-up line? I wanna know! 🙂

  12. Leslie says:

    wow, what a beautiful post. Don’t even know what to say except that I don’t even know you, but I admire the fact that you were okay leaving the familiarity. So many times we are afraid, and so we stay. Continue to run into the change…you won’t ever regret it. Love your blog.

  13. I will still always hold hope that you & Sandro work out. It may not be now, or in a month from now, but best friends make the best lovers & husbands. I’m sorry if you are rolling your eyes right now , but I’m a hopeless romantic. I know how much the two of you loved(love) one another, and I really dk why I feel like y’all will workout, but I do. Call me crazy, but I just adore you & only want the best for you. Sure you may have some rocky times in your relationship, and the passion may leave, but those are the times that you really have to work hard & bring it back to life. When your together for such a long time, it’s common in some relationships that the honeymoon phase is over. Idk… You already know your like a sister to me, and I really only want the best.. and of course, I have to say what I feel/think xoxo

  14. Thinking of you! Sometimes we need to get uncomfortable in order to access our best selves! Each person and part of your life is to help you grow into your best self! Lots of LOVE to you!

  15. I don’t know what I am drooling over more, your food or your delicious hair color – LMFAO. But I’ve swooned over your hair color before 😉

    Sounds like you’re taking some time for yourself, which is exactly what you need! Be kind to yourself, and take all the time you need. Breakups are always painful, no matter how smoothly they go.

    (I’ve read your blog a while now, never commented though, so don’t think I’m a total stranger!)

  17. […] was no snacking involved so far this week. I don’t know – I think after this emotional weekend my appetite was kind of off. Besides that, it is highly and finally needed for me to jump back on a […]

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
