It’s not me, it’s you guys. It’s ALL in your head!!!
Kidding. I am sorry. Not really. But I SWEAR, I didn’t buy this Essie nail polish due to its name. I actually have it since months and only now discovered the name of it. You kind of have to agree that ball-jokes never get old, right? Right.
Welcome to Monday!!! I hope your weekend has been marvelous.
A quick feature of my friend Christian. You might know him already, he made me go back to CrossFit last January and he is my co-worker at the office.
He is a bobsledder. You know, these huge guys who ride down an iced bob run. One of the things that are still on my list to do. Now, it’s actually his first season to compete and I think it is 90% of what we talk about together currently. I am excited for him and I will definitely go and cheer him on, once the season has started. Sign of his excitement – he sends me the days-ticker daily. I may or may not have a hundred and ten of this very same photo with a different figure on my phone now. I actually wake up every morning to this pic. I guess I never counted down days until a first bob race before in my life. Oh, well, what you do for friends. I show you one and spare you with the other 20.
But now, guys, shut your ears, I need to talk about PMS. My dear female readers, you maybe know it. Days of being fake-pregnant, puffy eyes, lower back ache and just feeling huge and shit. That was me for the past 5 days. I am considering going to my gyn and shovel some hormones to get rid of this drama every month. SO annoying. I only have this since I went off the pill and it suuuuuuucks big time. Any tips?
But anyway, this wasn’t the fun part about my week/weekend and we want to talk about some fun things today, right? I spent hours and hours with this girl –
Sylvia, my Best – we didn’t see each other in 2 weeks which is VERY abnormal and not acceptable. We caught up on 2 nights last week and exchanged about 5473897548937349 words. She thought it was fun to make a list of all the men I ‘met’ in my past. Let’s say I was in TEARS from laughing. SO many memories and gossip.
Another ladies night out on Saturday night – I went to visit my 2 blonde girlfriends Anne and Carmen for dinner. It was a beautiful late Summernight at the lake. Oh, how I missed it.
Now have a look at the drinks. And tell me what the HELL is that shrimp/octopus/see horse in my drink????!!!!
I swear. I didn’t see this while drinking, I only saw it on the pic afterwards and I was like ‘what the fuuuuuuuck’ (fuuuuuck in a very high pitch voice)….MAYBE that was why I looked like this after.
Sunday was my first day of workouts since one week. Unfortunately I couldn’t benefit from the restweek as much as I wanted to, cause my body was in all that shitty PMS pain for days. At least I slept a ton of hours all week and ate good food.
I made sure I fuel properly on Sunday morning.
I finally cooked up the FlapJacked Pancake Mix I got from Laura. I just added blueberries, and voilà! Ok, these are 2 servings. And honestly, my homemade pancake mix makes for a lot fluffier pancakes. But the apple cinnamon taste was delicious.
I went for a Sprintsession later on and then met up with one of my readers!! Sarah Jane reached out to me last week, telling me that she is in Basel. How cool is it to finally meet a reader!! We chatted along like girls do and I loved to get to know her – she is a musician (and a weight lifter! Yeah!) from the US who lives in Berlin with her boyfriend who is from Basel. Now how is that for a perfect combination.
Now look at her and agree with me on how beautiful she is. I can SO imagine her rocking the stage!!
I made a squat video to check on my technique after the restweek without any squatting but with tons of mobility and stretching. I felt that I performed a lot better apart from the upper body when I get down. Still, I go the approval from the coach that I am making good progress here!
Best ending of the day?? Dinner and then Facetime with my Atlanta blend-friend who I miss sooo much!! Except we failed MISERABLY with technology. God damn technology, I HATE it. Skype? Didn’t work. Yahoo Messenger? Didn’t work. So in the end we both stared at our phones and freaking out about our close up faces (don’t tell me you don’t know that). But I was so happy to catch up with her!!
That’s it! Happy Monday!
What is your usual Sunday breakfast?
Did you ever take a restweek?
