Thank you ever so much for all your sympathetic and caring comments, text messages and emails I got from you as a reaction to my 2nd ‘my story’ post from last Thursday. Guys, you are the best. It definitely took quite some courage to make this all public, but you just gave me the best reason as to why I do this! Just one thing: With the publishing of my past, I DON’T want to arrouse pity. Not at all. I made peace with my past, and I am recovered from all of these difficult happenings. It took me quite some time and work to reflect, but I am absolutely OK about it today and in a happy place. These things happened for a reason and the way I handled it at that time was right. Maybe I would do it differently today, but back then, these were the right decisions for me.
Now on to some marvelous things!
We had an office trip on Thursday / Friday last week – which was a blast, as always. There was a minor fact that was a little disturbing though – we went hiking. Maybe you know meanwhile that I am NOT a friend of hiking. Thank God I had food and chocolate before we started that adventure.
My coworker during climbing up this horrible-steep mountain: ‘Lucie, do you like it?’ Me (yelling at him in between gasping and trying to ignore an almost heart attack): ‘NO!!! I fucking HATE it. I wanna go home and watch TV.’ – Not very appropriate if you love hiking and fall into a romantic enthusiastic mood when you enjoy views like this:
I was drenched in my own sweat (so nice, I know) when we arrived on top and I couldn’t come up with more horrific swearwords as I used them all up. But of course it was stunning up there and when we sat down I was served some booze and food, all was good. You see, I am so frugal.
We slept in a cottage without water and power. It was really cool. Except that we all smelled. I mean, my shower was my own sweat on the hike up! Ugh. That just meant, we had to drink more.
Took some fun pics – this one was for Ramon, as it was his birthday.
Christian managed a MASTER-PHOTOBOMB. Seriously. WHERE the hell is ME??!! I was fighting for my visibility as you may notice. ALL IN VAIN. #fail
We hiked some more and I had to take a hiking selfie as usual. The excitement is real, as the hike wasn’t steep and we were about to arrive at a restaurant. Which meant I was awaiting food soon. Always a reason to be excited, right?
Stupid me left my phone unattended and the traditional ‘let’s-take-supermany-silly-pics-with-lucies-phone’ – fungame came into action. Oh my GOD. I was in tears. How on EARTH can someone make so many different creepy faces??!! NOT human.
Saturday morning called for a good breakfast, I was about to absolve an All Levels Class at Crossfit and Olympic Lifting.
Yeah. I drank coffee. I was said that coffee with fat is great. Why? I have no clue. Well, I just forgot it. but I was said it is good. I think it has something to do with more energy and even blood sugar levels. If you know more about it, please clarify in the comment section, tks.
The Oly Class was great – GIRLSPOWER!! We had a guest trainer from Germany who coached us and I am pretty sure that he was torn between being superhappy and totally nervous – or a little overwhelmed by so many words from us that were thrown at him in 60 minutes. I guess he wouldn’t admit that, but hey, 6 strong ladies – ain’t no joke there.
In the evening we celebrated Ramon’s birthday with a BBQ at the box. I can not publish all the pics or videos – let’s leave it by that fact that it was, errr……frolic. Yeah.
This is the only uncensored one I can give you…..Selfie with Ramon’s glasses. Inclusive photobomb (a photobombed selfie – now that is new even to me) – and someone who is dancing. Without pants.
Sunday I fueled up to be ready for Strongman training! I did my first and I loved it.
Apparently there are disciplines which are more fun, but I already loved this session. Like with everything I do for the first time, I was supernervous and sick cause of that – but I was able to do it all. This is what we did:
– Apollo Axle
– Crucifix hold
– Viking Press
– Keg Carry
– Tire Flip
And I flipped this damn thing. 6 times the lighter one and 3 times the heavier one. I was so angry at that heavy thing. So damn stubborn, for eff’s sake. Now check out my ever so pretty pout when I am in workout pain.
Many days with many happenings and many people – I was DONE by Sunday night. I wanted to have no plans, no talking, no people. Just me and my food and my laptop and my TV and my dishwasher (damn, I love my dishwasher) my bed, my peace.
Bye and happy Monday!
Do you think Ramons glasses fit me?
What is the benefit of coffee with fat?
Who is in for an European Blend retreat? In the Swiss mountains?
