Hello Monday!! Hi all!
Let’s start this week with some marvelousness – check out Katie’s blog for more! Summer was back in the city this weekend and I LOVE it so much. It definitely IS my favourite time of the year! Plus, it was my first weekend I was actually HOME – no moving, no Zurich, no trip. Just home.
Ok, so – I started my weekend with a visit to one of my best friends who owns a little gym close to Basel and we made a little fun photoshoot. I wanted to have some pics for my About Me section and check on my progress. Here’s a small selection!
In the evening I was invited for dinner at Jonas’ (male Bestie :-)) new place together with his girlfried and little one. He cooked up some serious deliciousness. Chicken wrapped in smoked ham, spinach salad with pine nuts and baked sweet potato wedges. Perfect.
And I ate what felt like 20 cookies after dinner – which was a bad choice, my stomach hated me all next day and I felt bad and a little guilty. But well, it happens, my choices are not always perfect.
I went for a run on Saturday morning and then spent the rest of the day
half-naked more or less here – soaking up the sun, sleeping and reading. This pillow lounge was definitely one of my best ideas ever!!
And now a historical moment: I tried my ULTIMA NINJA BLENDER for the FIRST time. It worked. I was over the moon. I freaked out and made jars and jars of coconut butter and cacao coconut butter. Feel free to come and purchase.
Sunday morning it was time for a killer strength session at the gym. Seriously, I must have hoarded extra energy, as I gave it all and my whole body was shivering when I was done. Even my workout notes were tattered.
I drove to the office with the car later on to get some work done and in the evening my friend Anne from Zurich came to visit me in my new home!
We sat on the pillow lounge forever and then I cooked up chicken and shrimps on endive salad with apples and cucumber plus sweet potato wedges on the side.
I loved this weekend, cause it showed me that I am happy where I am today. Basel is my hometown, it is the place I’ve been born and raised, my loved ones live here and my childhood memories are everywhere. I am happy to be back in such a familiar surroundment. It feels like home.
Where is the place you feel home?
Will you come here and help me emptying all these nutbutter jars? (not that I seriously need help….)
What are you looking forward to TODAY? Crossfit tonight!
