I think it’s time to update you on what’s been going on in my life lately.


I’ve had some amazing movie dates with my girlfriends. First we watched Coriolanus, a live broadcast of a British stage play straight from London. Yes, that’s a Shakespeare play! Featuring Tom Hiddleston and Mark Gatiss, also known as ‘Loki’ and ‘Mycroft Holmes’. It was an amazing show! Our movie theater was packed, and we were all blown away. The entire cast was simply brilliant.

More information about those theater broadcasts can be found on ntlive.com. I’m kind of excited about King Lear on May 1st.


Next we went out to watch Only Lovers Left Alive. It’s listed as a romance drama vampire film on Wikipedia, but I’m not sure I agree. It’s a rather calm, elegant story with a subtle humor. I highly recommend that movie, but don’t expect it to be like Twilight! Again, our theater was completely sold out, and we were lucky to get seats. Goodness!

We recently got us a pull-up bar! The husband installed it right away and we gave it a try. Surprising to no one, I can’t do a single pull-up. I’m not even close. How humbling. The husband, though, who never ever works out and sits in front of a computer all day long, easily cranked out four perfect pull-ups! Four! Life just isn’t fair.

Of course, I’ve saved the best for last: we are moving! I’ve mentioned in a previous post that I was looking for a new apartment in my hometown, and after searching high and low we found a beautiful place! I’m so happy and excited, but also a little scared. Moving an entire household is a ton of work, and costs a lot of money. In just a few weeks I will be exhausted and broke, but infinitely happy to be back home, where my family and friends live. My hometown is rather small, I admit, but it’s so much better than this tiny village in the middle of nowhere. I guess I’m just not made for country life.

That also means that I need to use up all the food in my pantry and freezer, this time for real. I’m focusing on frozen goods first, as those would definitely melt and go bad during the move.

Any ideas how I could use up frozen spinach, brussel sprouts, broccoli, and cauliflower?

See you!

Social Media Summer Break

After what felt like the longest winter ever, summer is finally here and it’s just amazing!

There are a few things that I want to do right now:

  • going on bike rides with my husband
  • visiting our favorite Biergarten locations
  • enjoying refreshing gelato
  • workout out at my new gym (yay!) to get into my best shape ever
  • going on an epic road trip following the Danube river (finally!)
  • swim in a local pool or lake and bake in the sun
  • etc.

Things that I don’t want to do right now:

  • sit in my muggy apartment
  • staring at a computer screen
  • spending hours in my kitchen creating elaborate meals

That means I’m taking a break from blogging, including writing, reading, and commenting on blog posts.

This doesn’t mean that I don’t like this blogging game anymore, it’s just a shift of priorities. I want to focus on the things that really matter to me: my health, fitness, happiness, and most of all my family. I want to spend more time living offline instead of online.

I’m still posting all of my workouts on my DailyMile account, and might occasionally post on Instagram and Twitter.

So don’t worry if you don’t hear from me in the next few weeks or months. I’m just soaking up some sunshine.

See you!
