Happy Monday! I hope your week started off nicely!
Welcome to another MIMM. Thank you Katie for hosting!
4 days to go. 4 days at the office, then I am off to a Chill-Weekend with my girls and on Monday, I fly off to the beach. It’s unbelievable how much I look forward to the sun!
But let’s start with the weekend first. On Friday I met up with Toby, my Ex-Ex-boyfriend which was great since I haven’t seen him in way too long and he is probably one of my most favorite conversational partner. He knows me so well and he is smart and funny. A good combo to talk about some important things. I also got to know his little family he has now and I am really happy for them. Oh, and the food wasn’t too bad either.
In the evening, I killed it at the box – I had a skill session with one of the coaches (skill: Toes to Bar – I managed 3 proper ones until I ripped my hands) went to Powerlifting and added 90 minutes Advanced CrossFit. Let’s face it – I couldn’t walk nor properly take off clothes anymore for the rest of the weekend. SO SORE.
Saturday morning I got up early to pick up our Powerlifting World Champion Nora to drive her to the Junior Switzerland Championships in Olympic Lifting in Lausanne. We babbled all the way in the car and arrived fresh and ready at the location.
Of course she broke all the Swiss Records. She’s a star. Look at that perfect snatch with an easy (*coughcoughcough*) weight of 80kg/176.3lbs.
After the award ceremony we drove back and I dropped her and her boyfriend off at their home and then went on to a little dinner party at one of my best friends house. It was one of the most relaxing and funny evenings in a long time and I took exactly one pic (of the booze of course) and then ignored my phone for the rest of the night. Oh, and I had 2 glasses of prosecco and was already supertipsy. I didn’t realize that I didn’t drink in about 4 weeks. WHO am I??
Sunday morning I did my sprints outside and then stumbled (did I mention I couldn’t really walk anymore from damn Barbell Walking Lunges??) to the train station to travel to a guy who wanted to sell me his bike. Sleepy and trying to hold my phone with sore arms from Pull Ups and weighted Push Ups.
Thank God I had food with me. Seriously guys, After Friday workouts like this, I eat like a lion. You can also call me bottomless pit, no big deal.
I bought the bike. It was a super bargain. You’re absolutely right, I already have a race bike, but the one I have is really exclusive (Klein Alteus) and I am paranoid that it will die in winter or maybe get stolen. So I need a back up. Diana with the pink stripes is now MINE and I absolutely love it. Both of them will be taken care of carefully, that’s for sure.
See, when you’re on the road alone, you just have to get strangers to take pics of you. You’re either a blogger or you aren’t. I am clearly used to get on people’s nerves frequently. It’s part of the job. Totally fine with me 🙂
I came home and started to do the debriefing work for Nora’s competition when I was hit by dizziness. I had it 2 weeks ago already one afternoon. Maybe you remember the day back in February when I spent a whole day at the Emergency Room cause I was acting like a complete drunk with throwing up and all that jazz at 7am in the morning. Now yesterday it wasn’t as bad, but it was definitely not possible to ignore and I had to cancel my CrossFit class, which I HATE. I don’t know what it is or where it comes from and I just hope it won’t happen again. I really hate it and it scares me. So, I spent the rest of the day in bed with my laptop, trash TV, blogging, Facebook stalking, a lot of sleep and dozing and killing mosquitos.
Yes. I have mosquitos in my bedroom regularly lately and I am just SO confused as to what the HELL they are doing there. It’s NOVEMBER guys, your season is over, so DIE and leave me in peace, damnit.
I guess it is just the work overload and the lack of sleep lately – my last vacation being back in May and the break up, the move and all the changes happening since then. Good thing Israel and Spain is just around the corner.
Have a great day guys!
Do you still have mosquitos where you live?
