Si, claro, WIAW

Good morning!image just had to take a break from this to sit inside and write this post for you guys…..

Bena Bena

You’re welcome.

Ok, so I am still here living the solo spanish life and I definitely don’t want to come back. Anyone interested in my job, appartment, bikes? Just send me the money soon, tks.

LucieOk, you came here to see food. I give it to you.

It is perfect to implement my LBC program here – tons of fresh food, a lot of time to cook, do my workouts and rest.

Fresh Fish and Seafood anyone??

And I feel so posh going grocery shopping by car.


You remember my grocery trip normally looks like this back home:


Ok, STOP babbling, now FOOOOOOOOD!!!


Eggy Oats with Berries, Peanut Butter and Yogurt

Yep. I am not the biggest fan of PB, but the only Almond Butter they have here is sweetened. So better Peanut Butter than no Nut Butter, right?

Oatmeal Pancakes with Cacao Yogurt and PB

Dinner –

Not booze. But I LOVE to cook with it – it tastes so delicious AND it is the perfect excuse to drink the leftovers – aka 2/3 of the beer πŸ™‚


Baked Codfish with Asparagus and Broccoli

Actually, on Monday a friends couple who is travelling through Andalusia at the moment came to visit me! We went for Tapas and Drinks of course. Such a great option to eat and drink out at least once…..

Cava....what else

….enjoyed with a side of this view.



The workouts are the 35 bike ride to the gym, lifting and cycling back – as already mentioned in Monday’s post…..

…plus a run here and there with the perfect views while the sun’s rising:

Not a nice view, my sweat.....

Not a nice view, my sweat…..


And I have my own Crossfit Box at the beach to practise my skills – completely on my own. It really sucks. Especially the view.

Bena Bena Bena BenaBenaSome twerking happens in between on demand of Miss Atlanta. Seriously, she just can not get enough. Unbelievably enough I found her name on the street while running. It was calling for a shadow twerk. New twerk skill. #shadowtwerk

BenaOh, and I completely master the perfect awkwardness of selfies and self-timer. Sorry, but I feel scared to stop the cyclers to take a pic of me. And I am famous here already anyway, so it doesn’t matter if I behave strange and weird by placing the camera everywhere, making adjustments, sprint to the spot, put on blogger smile and race back – repeat. #owntheawkwardness


3 more days and I am back……not that I want to.


Happy Wednesday friends!!

Do you like to cook with booze? Some white wine or prosecco to deglaze is sooooo good…..

What’s your go to workout when on vacation?

Can you pack me in your suitcase so I can join Blend this Weekend??

    Looks like a lovely vacation! So glad you’re enjoying yourself!

  2. Gosh you poor poor thing, looks like you’re having an awful time.

    But honestly, I think you’ve needed this trip so I do hope you come back nice and rested, even if it is a little different being there. πŸ™‚

    Running! I love to run around new places to explore. Or it’s even better when we can take the bikes – dad and I had a great cycling holiday through Germany a few years ago. We ended up following a wine festival along the river route! It was tough.

    Beautiful pictures!

    • Yep. I am drowning in self-pity. Lol.

      Oh yes, i needed it so bad and I feel so much better already now!

      That bike tour sounds so cool!! Wine is perfect fuel. πŸ™‚

  3. Looks like such a crap vacation…. πŸ˜‰

    So guess what. I’ve been keen to try a crossfit class for the fun of it but I’ll be waiting for your visit to do it with you!!!

    Glad your having time to embrace this all!

  4. Thanks for the tip about never going to spain without bringing my own almond butter! I love running at the beach not only because it is such a good change for my workout routine but also does it give me the perfect holiday feeling!

  5. Sigh…. I wish i could be there w/ you right now. We both know I need it & it’d be fablous of course! One day it’ll happen.. One day!

    Of course all your food looks delicious… when doesn’t? I did have to laugh though before you mentioned how you are using the self timer on your camera. I was wondering who you had snappng that photo of you posing in your bikini. Haha!

    Can’t wait to catch up & hear more about your lovely trip. I miss you xoxo (Does this make me sound like we’re dating? hahahaha)

    • I want to be your date!! Lol.
      And yes, this here would be perfect for you now. Beautiful and peaceful! AND we would get to chat in person all day long. Perfect.

      Haha – it is SO awkward when I do the self-timer thing πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  6. Your food always looks so amazing and whilst traveling, you are a superstar! I have to get on the eggy oat boat especially since I found out that I can eat oatmeal again! Lots of loveC

  7. I’ll pack you for Blend if you pack me for Spain next year! πŸ˜‰ It looks so gorgeous!!

  8. I want to do THAT Crossfit with you!!! My name is written all over it. πŸ˜‰

    It made me smile that grocery shopping with a car was such a treat. I’ll never forget how scared I was to drop the bicycle of champagne! That was SO MUCH fun. Who needs a car?!

  9. Love me a good boozy meal! Both in the food and in my glass! Now my question is, who is taking all these gorgeous pictures of you?!?!

  10. I don’t blame you for not wanting to come back… I wouldn’t either! One of these days I really need to make it out to Spain. Wanna meet me there and show me the ropes? πŸ˜€

  11. Yes. It’s horrible. πŸ™‚

    YOU Sweetie WAIT for me till I’m there!! We’re going to rock that Sydney Crossfit Box!!

  13. Funny – I wondered if you were stopping people to take all of your photos!

  14. If I had male genitalia, I would have a HUGE BONER from that seafood! LMFAO!

  15. Sarah says:

    You know you’re a healthy living blogger when you think “I should ahve taken my own nut butter from back home”… Have fun in Spain Lucie!

  16. Wow- WHAT views…I need to head to Spain! Your vacay sounds so lovely! I usually rely on running for exercise during short trips. However I’m in London for another 4 weeks so just paid for a monthly gym membership to make use of the classes & weight training section!

  17. Kierston says:

    Beautiful!!! And the food, amazing as always…especially those oat pancakes πŸ˜‰

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. β€š'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
