Catching up

15 May

I’ll post up today’s stuff tomorrow… has been a busy day today. In the meantime you can read my workout entry for today. 🙂

EDITED 5/16/2010

Ok I got a really good cardio workout in the morning, but my knees were all acting up thanks to my terrible shoes. I planned to go to Road Runner Sports Shop later to get a new set of running shoes. I’ve heard lots of good stuff about this place, so I decided to give it a try and I did. More on that here.

Anyway, even though I wasn’t at my most intense jog, I felt super hungry afterward. It took us about 30 minutes to drive home, not to mention we had to stop by at a market to get some groceries. So I munched on Clif® Bar Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Energy Bar.

240 calories, good enough to replenish my energy after 6 miles jog/walk

The taste reminds me a lot of the usual Oatmeal Raisin cookies. It has a slight cinnamon taste in it, which is not quite my favorite and it’s pretty sweet too. But after 6 miles jog/walk, my blood sugar was pretty low, so I devoured the whole thing in a second. I always feel a lot hungrier after I did cardio workouts.

Back from the market, I reheated plain soymilk, mixed some cocoa powder and a bit of sugar as part of my breakfast. It was ok, but cocoa powder might not be that good companion with plain soymilk. It tasted a bit bitter, might need to add some vanilla extract to balance it out.

And I had this Whole Wheat Arabic bread, pair up with Crunchy Peanut Butter! It wasn’t the best combo, but I had no cheese or hummus around. I ran out of my whole wheat bread and craved for peanut butter so this whole wheat Arabic bread satisfied my crave.

only a bit fo PB per bite. I couldn't eat PB too much at once, make me feel sick

And as usual my dear hubby made me a cup of hot tea. I usually always have a cup of tea t work too, but it’s usually a green tea bag instead of loose leaf tea.

I bought lots of bell peppers at Superking Markets because they were on sale this week! I love to bell peppers, especially the colorful ones because they make even a simple dish look very appetizing. Like this Stir Fry Fish Fillet Medley!

So colorful! Love it!

I came up with that dish name. In the mix was very simple stuff: Fish fillets, green bell peppers, red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers, carrots, red onions, and garlic, seasoned with salt, black pepper and some light soy sauce. Yummy!
And I need the fiber fix so boiled a big bunch of spinach!

A lunch won’t be complete without fruity desserts! So I cut up an orange, an apple and washed some red globe grapes.

We didn’t finish the fruits because we had to go to the store and then headed up straight to my in law’s place for dinner. I forgot to bring my camera so no food pic for the dinner. :[ But majority of the food are meat based dishes, including the vegetable dishes. All vegetable dishes cooked with some meat in it. And they also had fried egg rolls. I only had 1/2 of it just for a taste. Believe me I do have weakness in deep fried and crunchy stuff. Potato chips, french fries, deep fried egg rolls, fried chicken, you name it! As I try to cut down on those, the less temptation I have towards those foods. But I still try not to start munching on french fries..ugh…those stuff so addicting. Once I start I can’t stop so better not start at all!
After the dinner, we had some green tea mousse cake. The cake was pretty light but I didn’t eat the mousse part..was too sweet.
