I don’t talk about this on my blog & WIAW

10. September 2014 by swissfitchick

Last week, I was out for lunch with friends and then there was this situation: we talked about an acquaintance (not even a friend), and I said:’ I don’t know more than this, he didn’t tell me.’ The answer of my friend was:’ Well, maybe cause he was scared you would share it on your blog.’

That made me think. See, you know me. I am extroverted, I am a Social Media addict (not all of them. Someone please clarify as to when the HELL I created a Google+ account and why and what is it anyway – I am stupidly clueless), I am a passionate writer, and I am a narcissist. That’s why I can keep up this blog since almost 2 years (DON’T remind me that I forgot all the blogiversaries so far). I know that for some people it is difficult to understand as to why the hell I would share my whole life with the whole world. And that’s ok. I provide a huge platform of vulnerability and take the risk to be criticised when sharing so much personal stuff on the Internet. I don’t have a problem with that. Far from it. I love honest and straight people, cause I am just the same. I say what I think, so I like if I get the same attitude back. Different opinions lead to interesting discussions. Perfect.

And if someone is bored to death about everything I write, that is fine too. No big deal to click away. Maybe I am a pain in the ass with my blogposts on Facebook. That’s Social Media life. I think as a blogger, you have to be a little of a pain in the ass. It’s part of the success🙂

Writing is my passion, my life. Even though I don’t do it as often as I wish and even if I don’t earn money with it, it is what – besides training – I LOVE to do. I might sound like a prig, but I never ever wrote an essay back in school under the mark of 5.5 (6 is best). As said – it’s my passion. Besides that I love the action itself, it is my favorite way to express myself. I don’t have a problem with talking in front of many people, but writing means so much more to me. It helps me to reflect, it helps me to clear my head, I can be creative, I can be silly, serious and it challenges my intellect. If I can help, inspire or support people out there at the same time, then even better. If I can entertain and make people laugh out there, even better. If I can share useful information, tips and ideas, even better.

LucieBut I would NEVER EVER share private stuff from someone else. Maybe I posted a pic or 2 in the past about someone I didn’t ask first, and I am sorry about that. Though I never got any complaints. But I give my best to ALWAYS ask first when pictures or articles about someone else go up. I have all the respect for my friends, family and everyone else in my life who do not want to be featured on here.

I have a bunch of best friends with whom I share pretty much everything with. They know me, my life, my character in and out and my struggles. And they share everything with me too. Does anyone really believe I would write about this here?! I consider myself as a true, faithful and loyal friend, I have friendships that last since over 30 years. I know what it means to take care of friends.

Also – maybe, one day I will have a new man in my life. Maybe. My Ex, Sandro was just as extroverted as I am and he didn’t have a problem to be featured on my blog here and there. But that’s not everyone’s thing. This blog is about me and even if my closest people don’t want to be on here, that is perfectly fine and I will respect that for all times.

Talking about sharing stuff about myself: Remember that I took part in a photoshooting for a personal trainer website? Here you go.

Why the fuck do I hold the barbel like this. I am a chick, yeah, but THAT? Cheesus. Also, I wanna know my thoughts in this pic. Or….nope. Maybe I don’t want to know. I probably thought about something inappropriate, as always. Plus, I daresay they made my boobs smaller. I am not a fan of them, but hey, where are they?? Normally they almost jump out of the tank top, assholes (the boobs, not the editors…..).

Is this ME?? I look SO awkward. But I felt comfortable, I swear. This is my favorite version of pull ups🙂

Good, we have that out of the way. Now food.

wiaw fall into good habits buttonSaid lunch with the CrossFit community was so nice. It was warm and sunny, we sat in the garden, cracked tons of dirty jokes, discussed inappropriate things (again) and I had a lovely beefsteak with mysterious veggies and salad during all that.

BeefMost of them just got out of bed (oh, the students!), so it was breakfast for them – not for me. You know I can not wait until 11:30 to eat breakfast, unless I had a wild night out and stay in a booze coma until forever.

My breakfast was a big bowl of a VERY new to you meal:

2 eggs, 4 eggwhites, oats, banana, cacao nibs

2 eggs, 4 eggwhites, oats, banana, cacao nibs

You see, my kitchen mojo is nowhere to be seen. I don’t have any recipe ideas (ok, I didn’t even make the effort to think about something) and if I don’t cook up my weekendly pancakes, then I am really lazy. Cause Weekend are for pancakes. Maybe next time.

At least I cooked up my meals and didn’t buy any packed salads at the supermarket. Win.

Sweet Potato Wedges, Mushrooms. Zucchini, Chicken

AND! My favorite dessert of the year is back!! Roasted Cinnamon Squash with Chocolate Dip. Oh bliss.

Do you consider yourself extroverted or introverted?

Did you already have your fair servings of squash?

What do I think in the squatting picture?

    What kind of squash do y’all have over there? Your favorite?

  2. As you know, I am super introverted and I’m totally not sitting here eating a bowl of kabocha squash right now. Really. I swear on my awesomesauce.😉

    Your squat is hot. The nails make it, and your boobs look marvelous. I think a largely rounded booty is better to have anyway. Any one can buy boobs. You have to build an ass.

  3. That comment from your friend was not cool at all! Just because you have a blog doesn’t mean you lose respect for the privacy of yourself and those around you- sorry you had to hear it! I love that squatting pic of you- strong woman who you don’t wanna mess with😉

    • Actually, I wasn’t hurt by the comment, it just really made me think that maybe people in general would think that I share stuff about them that they don’t want to. Or that they stop opening up to me, cause they think I would publish it. I am so far away from a thought like that, I can not even say it.

      And thank you Khushboo !!🙂

  4. Never had squash before…am I missing big here?!!😉
    I am rather introverted so I think my writing and blog activity is the medium I choose to open myself and share more about me. I guess it works both ways!

  5. My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.

    You look amazing in those pics!!! So focused! Hmmmm I’m pretty careful with what I post and often don’t post pictures of my friends, but there are a few who don’t mind- then again not too many know about my blog…yet.

    Kabocha me baby.

    • Thank you!
      I think pretty much all of my friends know about the blog. I love that they even pose for pics meanwhile. Or they lay food on the table and say:’ Take a pic!’ I feel like a dog, but they’re awesome.

  6. I for sure miss blogging, it was my favorite way to express myself but have been SO busy I am unable to even think of anything fun or creative so I am kinda putting it on hold! I am so happy you share your stories and experiences its def nice to read! All my love xo C

  7. You and your chocolate squash😛 It’s still a combo that I need to try, but I promise you — this year for sure!

    And I’d have to say that I’m pretty introverted. I go through phases sometimes where I’m a little more outgoing, but for the most part I’m pretty private. People that know me are actually super surprised that I blog since it’s such a public platform, but I need the creative outlet.

  8. This line –> ” . I think as a blogger, you have to be a little of a pain in the ass. It’s part of the success ” SO TRUE. Also there is one person in my life (not really a friend, just someone I know) who repeatedly says “don’t post this on the blog”. It drives me nuts!! Mainly because I would a) never do that and b) she is not particularly interesting so I wouldn’t do it anyway. Oh man I’m the worst…

    • Hahaha. Exactly!! The guy we were talking about is someone I meet randomly at the gym (if I ever go there, haha), so WHY would I want to blog about him🙂 I am not better at all……🙂

  9. You look awesome in those photos! And of course, the boobs look fine :-p I think I’m a mix between extroverted and introverted – I love going out and spending time with friends, but I’m shy and it’s hard for me to open up to people I don’t know well. I have noticed a bit of a shift to a more extroverted personality the last few weeks though, which is fun!

  10. It’s a bit ignorant to assume that someone who blogs will share other people’s stories as well, sorry you had to get this judgement. Just because you live life openly doesn’t mean you don’t have respect – this blog is for you and about you, not anyone else🙂
    You look fabulous in all the pics! I would be concerned my face would expand larger than a watermelon if photographed during a pullup!

  11. Wow, I’m surprised anybody would ever assume you to share personal information about anybody but yourself. Do many of your friends and family read your blog?
    I’m more introverted in general so when people find out I blog they’re occasionally stumped. Probably assuming I was talking about myself non-stop on there. Like you, I just need it as a creative outlet, a place to let my thoughts flow.
    And to answer the most important food question: I’ve been working on my pumpkin glow since the beginning of August. The situation around my new place is somewhat sad, though.

  12. I hear you. I try to make sure that even though I’m posting all out MY life, I don’t overshare about other people’s lives. I’m a total extrovert so I’m kind of an over-sharer by nature, haha.

  13. Emily Hawkes says:

    I think you are my new favourite blogger🙂 Loving your posts and the fact that you are an extrovert.

  14. […] And I identify with Lucie: I don’t talk about this on my blog. […]
