Cry a River and Blueberry-Almond-Cake Recipe


19. July 2015 by swissfitchick

I confess my way or we could also say the amount of using swear words is more than considered appropriate. Especially when we look at the fact that I am not a teenager anymore. Although I think I can keep up with my young family at CrossFit.


2 hours spontaneous Pumping Iron and lifting heavy shit on Saturday afternoon

2 hours spontaneous Pumping Iron and lifting heavy shit on Saturday afternoon

Anyway, I increased the use of these words past week significantly due to a few things over here which simply suck and there are too many moments a day when I want to curl up on our couch and cry a river. I could sit there squinch up my face with 25 question marks stringed together above my head cause I don’t understand why this is happening. Not that I would do this or anything cause I don’t give away bad times in public, I handle it on my own as always. Job is Happiness, Training is Happiness, Body Image is Happiness, so nothing to worry about there.

Anyway, sad/frustrating/difficult things happen and I just have to hang in there till it’s over. Harden the fuck up as the boys like to say.

Quoting my brother who says his sister is the most relaxed and cheerful person around, I still do have hard times too but I always suck it up, take the strength I may gain out of it and realize every time anew that one probably needs to shoot me five times to be able to struck me down. It’s not for nothing that my boys call me a buffalo cause of my buff upper body but I am just as buffalo-y on the inside. I  might be a nice, funny cheerful and silly blonde girl, but – don’t mess with me, just don’t.

It’s ok though, if my boss sneaks a pic of me during my lunchtime nap and then my team hacks my Facebook account and upload it as my new cover photo. They own my heart, so they got the license. After crazy 2 hours morning trainings and hours of work it’s totally legit to look like dead.

CrossFitTraining and friends keep me sane currently, I’d be lost without them. It’s my medicine and I consume it in ridiculous amounts every day at the time.

Barbecue, Laughs and Booze. Good combo.

Never stop laughing.

Never stop laughing.

And of course food. I did some extreme grocery shopping on Saturday where I stockpiled up on blueberries cause they were on sale. If you have ever been to Switzerland (or Sydney for that matter) you know that buying berries make your wallet cry. But not this time and before I cycled to the lifting session with the boys I inhaled them in form of sweet scrambled eggs plus created a new cake recipe for the bunch of CrossFit people later on at the BBQ.

Eggs Cake


Blueberry Almond Cake (Glutenfree / Paleo)


100g Almond Flour

2 heaped tbsp grated coconut

200g fresh blueberries

4 eggs

1 tsp baking powder

3dl rice milk (can be swapped by almond milk)

3 tbsp melted cacao butter (can be swapped with coconut oil)

2 tbsp honey

cinnamon as much as you want


Preheat oven to 220° C

Mix all dry ingredients together

Add in eggs, milk and melted oil and stir well until all ingredients are well combined

Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Eat right out of the oven.

Cake Cake

That’s it Loves. I try to get my shit together and keep that smile up. Have a good one.

What is your best medicine in hard times? 

Can you walk on your hands? 

Do you want to come over and have a piece of the cake with me?

  1. sending you hugs L! hope all is well, i’m sure the handstands help to ease any issues 🙂 i like a good sweat to get over tough times as well, and sometimes a good scream into a pillow…
    you are rocking those butterfly things lol! wow you are truly an inspiring chick. xoxox

  2. I want some cake. I think you should move here. We can be buffalos and eat cake together. And bananas… with eye contact. xoxox

  3. I love talking to my mom, she always seems to be able to cheer me up! I can’t walk on my hand what so ever.. I try but I always fall over. If you bake that cake I’ll be over in a second, it looks so GOOD! 🙂

  4. Friends and some TLC are the best medicine, always. Sending much positivity your way! I know it sucks when you don’t know what’s wrong.
    I once worked in a farm shop (behind the counter) and one day had to help out with the blueberry picking, I gained a new found appreciation for those suckers. Think stay in the bottom of a squat position whilst shuffling sideways along a row of plants and identifying the perfect berries individually for EVER. Ouch. Now I get why they’re expensive…

    This looks amazing! Thank you for sharing a great recipe! I shall have to add it to my list of things to try 😊

  6. Can you walk on your heads? OH you know, we do that in Australia, what’s feet?

    I love the glow you have in this new(ish) position. Your a radiant chicken.

  7. You better believe I want to come over and have a slice of cake with you. And then give you the biggest hug and tell you that I hope everything is okay. I know you got this (whatever -this- is), but I also know that hard times suck when they happen. Hopefully everything gets better soon ❤ Miss you. We need a repeat May weekend.

  8. I most definitely want to come and have a slice of cake with you and you can be assured that I will come armed with plenty of hugs and tea to soothe the soul :)! Sorry to hear things aren’t going great for you but I’m glad you are surrounded by a good support system–> if you ask me, that is undoubtedly the best medicines during low moments!

    • Haha yes I love to record all the crazy stuff we do here at the gym. So cool to look back!
      It’s getting better. I’d love to have some cake and wine with you though!!!

  10. I’ve been thinking about you my lovely Buffalo. Did you know I’m from a town called Buffalo and I was there last week. It’s a sign. Clearly. Also I had another sign about something you and I have talked about with regards to little old me. I’m following up on that sign. 🙂

    Keep taking care of you and remember I’m here. Cleveland too if you need an escape. We have lots of blueberries.

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
