Training, Friends, Party


23. February 2015 by swissfitchick

Good morning and Happy Monday!

While you are reading this, I will probably be in the middle of 200’000 people downtown at Basler Fasnacht, aka Carneval. You remember – I wrote about it the past few years and most presumably the major part of you think I am completely nuts for being part of this tradition, but I roll with it.

Anyway, first things first: A week full of good things lays past me. I was so free to take 2 half-days off from work to catch up with girlfriends. Nothing better than spending time with my loved ones.

AnneFriends FriendsIt actually felt like Spring two days this week which makes cycling SO MUCH more enjoyable. I absolutely LOVE to be on my racing bike, we know that by now, but even more so when the sun’s out and I can ride in a shirt and with shades. Perfection.

LucieTraining: CrossFit Games Open start in only 5 days! I have to be good at carneval and I will – for the first time since I am carnevalising (30 years now) – go to do a training twice during these 3 days. We did some tough competition prep sessions past week, I inserted some Powerlifting stuff (Swiss Championship in FOUR weeks!) and as every week, I went to Gymnastics. I love it more and more each time I go – even though I still move like a wet sack on the rack (wheeeee, RHYME!!) – I do see some little progress.

Highlight of the week?

Burlesque Party with my CrossFit peeps. It was a damn frolic BLAST. We started at the box and then moved on to the club where there was dancing, drinks and Burlesque shows all night. Absolutely, absolutely loved it.

The Guys…..


I hope you all have a marvelous start into the new week – head on over to Katie for more good things this Monday!!

What was your highlight last week?

Have you ever been to a Burlesque Party?

  1. A Burlesque party is brilliant! I want one for my birthday! I actually had friend who has a burlesque-themed wedding. It was amazing.

  2. ok, so the next party I’m having needs to have a burlesque theme. That looks like so much fun!!

    The more I read about your experience with crossfit, the more I want to try it. Unfortunately it’s not very popular in Geneva (there is only one box and it’s far away from my place and my office). I might still decide to give it a try though!

    My highlight last week was probably pizza on Saturday. LOL. My week was super uneventful so I’ll have to go with that. It was amazing though, with buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil and cherry tomatoes.

  5. I bet the party was a blast! Our CrossFit box parties/ nights out always end up being a blast!

  6. In LOVE with the idea of a burlesque theme party! What’s say we throw one at Blend? 😉

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
