The 2014 Blogger Survey


19. December 2014 by swissfitchick

Hello from back on the couch!!


Yes. I am back home, sick. It obviously was a BAD idea to go to work and CrossFit Monday and Tuesday. Now I have several bacterial infects, that attacked my sinuses and my eyes – I look like someone punched straight both of my eyes after smoking shit tons of cheap grass. So, Holiday Season my ass – can we extend it for a month, so I can catch up on the missed parties and all the mulled wine?!

Anyway, that’s the boring part, now my friend and blend Arman saved my blogger entity by creating a fabulous survey.


Let’s go.

Top three favorite posts: 

1. I have to cheat a little here. I had a hard time and it took me tons of hours to put them together, but I loved writing them and they were some of the most read posts by you – the MY STORY series, part 1, part 2, part 3. part 4 and part 5. Clearly super narcissistic to like my own story, but hey, the blog is about me, so nothing new here.


2. I am not a size small anymore and why I think lifting weights is good for you 

My view and attitude about my muscle gain and what I benefit from it and from my daily strength training.

3. Pumpkin Chilli Recipe. Since it is winter and chilli is the bomb, I repost it here. I love this recipe!!


Top Three Favorite Blogger Post: 

1. Of course I LOVED Laura’s recap of her time here in Switzerland with me. Besides that we had the best time, it is so fun to read how others experience my country.


2. There are hardly any posts by this lady which I don’t love to the moon and back. She is my queen of words and humour. Since I can not decide which of her posts is the top one, I chose one randomly and it happens to be the Public Banana post. I read it at the office (I normally never do that, aahahaha) and I honestly considered to stuff my mouth with post-it’s to not laugh out loud constantly.


3. Carly. She is real, honest, straight, lovable and hilarious. And so brave. I love this post about the ‘Tuesday Transformation – I’m Calling Bullshit’ – madness going on in Social Media and showing how light, clothes and all that jazz can change the look of your bodies in pics. And how unimportant it all actually is.


Top Three Events of 2014: 

1. Swiss Team Challenge. My first Team Competition in CrossFit – I loved every single minute of this weekend!!

2. My Move. A big change this year – moving from Zurich back home to Basel after Sandro ended our relationship. A whirlwind of emotions – excitement, fear, farewell, sadness, anticipation – all of it. But, I survived it all, built myself back up with tons of new challenges and I am deeply in love with my new home.


3. Travels. I spent 14 days on my own in Israel and Spain in November. Best way to lengthen the summer, shorten the winter and exploring a whole new world all by myself.


Top Three Meals 2014: 

1. Hummus and PIta Bread. I ate it daily in Tel Aviv and I can not stop thinking of it.

Tel Aviv

2. Chestnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Not a meal, but definitely one of my favorite healthified cookie recipes so far. So much the better since I made them when I was sick and had all the time of the world to slowly eat my way through a batch.


3. Quark Pancakes. I can never get enough of them – topped with more quark of course.


Top Three Blogger Trends:

I don’t think I can give you three – cause I usually just don’t get the trends. I am kind of naive and blind when it comes to these trends (and in some other situations too maybe, coughcough), so I totally miss out. BUT, yesterday, I noted one that Amanda brought up on her blog – the meme game. You type your name and meme into google and see what comes up. Holy mother of god, you must try this!! I definitely had a damn ton of fun with the results. My favorites:

You beautiful liar, hell yes.

Thank you. Yes. #gulpsdowndoublewhiskey #faints

I am shocked at how much this equats to the truth

PLUS, I will follow a BIG blogger trend next year – I will attend my first Blend Retreat in May 2015 in Boulder. To say I am excited is the understatement of the year.

Happy Weekend to all of you!!

Top of 2014….

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. ‚'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
