Hey everyone, how’s your week going so far?
I started mine with a new workout this morning from Bodyrock.tv and go a nice sweaty workout. Despite not eating any dinner last night, my performance was pretty good. I didn’t feel sluggish or lack of energy. It’s true that I’ve been always working out in empty stomach for 90% of the time for the past year, but I usually never skip dinner the night before.
Truth: When you consumed enough calories of the day, your body will naturally not wanting any more food.
Refueled myself with sweet potatoes & grass fed ground beef
Truth: Remember I mass baked sweet potatoes on Sunday? Well, I found out a lot of them are still undercooked, especially in the middle. Solutions? Zapped them in the microwave for about 5 minutes and tada!
Packed my breakfast as well – 2 small avocado with some squirt of lemon juice, dash of salt and grass fed ground beef
Truth: I love my own “guacamole” version vs. store bought (which I still had 1 more container in my freezer). For some reason, store bought guacamole tastes bitter to me and my quick version is creamier and has a slight “sweetness” in it.
Lunch was whatever stuff I put together last night I finally got to taste Curried Chicken Kale I made last night. How funny I cooked but ended up not eating any of those until today.
Truth: I wasn’t really hungry for lunch but I still finished the entire box (plus the berries later afternoon)
And I also cooked more stuff:
Beef Stew (similar to 7 Spice beef stew but with 5 spice powder and star anise instead plus carrots, ginger and turnips)
Use-Whatever-Veggies-You-Have Stir Fry – the combo this time were asparagus, shiitake mushrooms, green peas and grass fed ground beef)
Truth: I don’t know why I’m still cooking during weekday despite already did meal preparation on Sunday. For some reason, I always cook every.single.day.of.the.week.
Truth: I don’t really enjoy cutting pineapple and yet I am still getting it and it will usually take me days to finally cut it before it actually goes bad.
After some macadamia nut overdose yesterday, I convinced myself to write my own Healthy/F*** off scale food using Whole9 template.
The higher they are, the healthiest and I strive to eat them more often. The middle part indicates some food that are not actually that good for your health but not that bad so I’ll eat them on some rare occasions. I put nuts in that scale so I’ll be more mindful consuming them. Finally the lowest area where food that are pretty much that won’t do any good but when it’s the time that I really want it, I’ll just F*** off, have it, savor it then move on. Just like last time I had that flaky buttery cookie.
Truth: I am not even sure if writing it down will actually work for me or against me. Anyway, it’s good to actually put it down on a paper so I could always refer back. Of course the scale might change later on in the future.
Have a great night/day everyone!
