Hi everyone! Hope you all are having a nice weekend. If you’ve read my blog recently, you would know that weekdays and weekends do not make any difference for me. In some ways, I do enjoy it but on the other hand back in my mind, I do feel a little guilt for taking this way too easy. More on that later.
Apparently, I’ve been in the mood of easy cooking as well.
Like this Easy Tandoori Chicken – which what I had for today’s lunch
With the Cauliflower “Mashed Potatoes”
And yesterday I made a big batch of Bo Kho (Vietnamese Beef Stew) – this time I used Red Boat fish sauce and TONS of lemon grass, 3 huge carrots and 1/2 cabbage head cut into chunks!
I also made a little effort to make my own tomato paste by cooking 8 tomatoes until most of the liquid evaporated.
Boy, I have Bo Kho to feed an army here
I froze some so we won’t be sick eating Bo Kho for the next couple meals.
Now you know what I’ll be having for dinner later
But taking it easy doesn’t apply to my morning workout. Yesterday and this morning workout left me sweaty and pumped up, in a good way.
Yesterday and today’s pre workout snack – 1 small Japanese yam
Yesterday’s post workout snack – 1 small Japanese yam and 1/2 chicken breast left over from Crazy Chicken dinner
Lunch was super yummy and easy as well. Cheater’s Shish Kabob Chicken with sliced of whole avocado, Baked Cabbage and steamed Chinese Kale (gailan)
And I had mid afternoon snack of bowl of fruity goodness: cherries, strawberries and sliced of an orange.
Which kept me full that I almost didn’t need dinner, but couldn’t resist to taste Bo Kho that I made.
Today’s post workout snack was combined as my lunch, which I already posted earlier. And I had some purple yam in the oven and by the time it was done, I couldn’t resist to have some. I only intended to eat half but then ended up consuming the whole purple yam. Gosh, I love purple yam way too much!
Now I wonder if I’ll have a dinner later.
Ok, here’s my dinner
Anyway, back to the topic I mentioned earlier on this post. It’s been a week since that day and to be honest, I haven’t really made an effort to prepare myself for job search. On one hand I’d like to take my time to do it, but on the other hand I’m a little scared that I’m getting a bit too comfortable with my situation now. I’m not saying financial won’t be an issue because eventually it will catch up! We can’t live off on our entire savings forever. I’ve been having this “guilt” at the back of my mind that I should put my act together and stop being a slacker.
Ok enough rant. I just want to write it up to make myself feel better.
Have a great day!
