Yes! This was an epic weekend. Not that any extremely exciting stuff happened, but isn’t it the small things that make life beautiful?
Friday morning leg day at the gym (LOVE-HATE), and some stupid filing work at the office while watching the live coverage of the Crossfit Games. Yes, I am allowed to do that while filing and besides that it was actually my day off.
Lunch with the Crossfit Crew. I failed on the food picture front, but Coach Tom made sure we have plenty of pics. It’s obviously a fun tradition to take 7087892 pics with my iphone. 🙂
Friday afternoon: Spontaneous date with my Best and checking on a dress for a wedding in August. She photobombed my side-selfie while trying on my stuff. She might have complained about the million of clothes I own, but let’s face it, it’s a girls paradise.
Late afternoon: Pedicure. I call this Strawberry Cheesecake. SO girly. It’s summer and I am a girl. So I love it.
Sorry for the messy bed. I only slept in it. #twss
Heading to Crossfit. Crossfit-Boss Ramon taught us Squat Stretches (my Squat form sucks big big BIG (did I say big?) time) and then I practised Double Unders.
You might get sick of my Crossfit talk. I am sorry. But I can not stop, cause – I can do effing-freaking Double Unders!!! For those who don’t understand: Double Unders is rope skipping – 1 jump, rope passes under 2 times. It was my hate-exercise and now I did 30 (THIRTY) in a row. Barefeet. And my calves are dead now.
Time to put on the grill after this excitement, getting lazy on the box-couch, catching up with Vanessa, watching the Crossfit games and cracking stupid-silly jokes all night.
Oh, and I brought along a homemade apple pie. It was even half-paleo!! The crust wasn’t. But I used shredded coconut, almond meal and coconut milk for the topping. It was really good, if I may say so myself. I know, not everyone got a piece of it. Sorry about that 🙂
Saturday morning: 8k trailrun in the rain. No pics.
Postrun Breakfast: Blueberry Protein Pancakes with healthy almond chocolate sauce. I didn’t want it to end.
Saturday afternoon: Shopping in Germany with Mom and enjoying the farmers market…..
Later on: bustling around at home doing nothing and everything. Hanging up pics, filling up my snack jar, cooking dinner. I wanted to fill the jar with mini-chocolates. But let’s keep it real, they would be stuffed in my face before tomrrow night arrived. So trailmix it is.
Saturday night: More Crossfit Games at the box. Plus a bottle of Amarone. It starts to get out of hand with that red wine. Even though it is always only one glass – I don’t know where this is coming from?! Whatevs. I roll with it.
Sunday morning: Gym time. So nice, so quiet, so intense.
Sunday afternoon: Nutbutter-Blending-Craziness, and Summer Date with the Bestie at the river. Can it get any better?
My way of blending. Did I mention that the transformer weighs 13kilos (3-freaking-2 lbs) ? And yes, my kitchen always looks like some kind of foodbomb exploded after experimenting. I am NOT good in keeping things clean and neat while cooking. Can we still be friends?
I even had cacao powder and nutbutter on my cheek, in my hair, on my legs and all over my dress. Don’t judge.
PS. I had lunch in between nutbutter and date:
Chill out Time.
As said – little things that make life marvelous. Head on over to Katies blog for more!!
Have a lovely day friends!
What was your highlight of the weekend?
Do you manage to keep your kitchen clean when you cook or create recipes? If so, can you come and teach me please? I am not keen on walking around in town with foodleftovers all over me every time I cook. (It happened several times.)
What is your favorite bodypart to train? I love everything upper body. My legs are weak compared to it, that’s why I hate it. Maybe one day……
