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.
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.
Barbecue, Laughs and Booze. Good combo.
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.
Blueberry Almond Cake (Glutenfree / Paleo)
100g Almond Flour
2 heaped tbsp grated coconut
200g fresh blueberries
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.
That’s it Loves. I try to get my shit together and keep that smile up. Have a good one.

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