The ego

22 May

Who wants to get up at 4:30 am on Saturday? Nobody..LOL..including me! But my workout ego overcame it, dragged my ass off from the bed and got ready. Seriously this round 2 of my semi P90X workout seems more intense than the first one. At least for the first round, I still get some more sleep over weekends. But now I only have 1 day during weekday to sleep in until 6:30 am. Hopefully I won’t got burned out too quickly.

Beach workout was pretty good today. I could jog alternating with running in between and added one or two sprints, mostly to catch up with my husband. Again, it’s my ego not wanting to be fall behind from him. Especially he doesn’t workout every single day like me. That got me even more.

On the way back, I was super hungry so I snacked on my first sample from Larabar®, Larabar® Peanut Butter and Jelly!

My thought? LOVE IT! Not too sweet, has a little tangy taste into it and pretty filling! Plus no chemical ingredients in there, just straight forward peanuts, dates, unsweetened cherries and salt. See that unsweetened cherries? That explains where that tart taste came from 🙂 Plus no added sugar! The sweetness came from the dates! Wonderful stuff.

Of course I still needed a real breakfast food so after I got home and shower I made this bowl of oatmeal! This time it turned out creamier than the previous two. Topped with 1/2 not quite ripe banana, a bit of peanut butter and pieces of whole wheat pita bread left over from my husband’s breakfast, I’m in heaven! Also cooked them in plain soymilk instead of water. Yummy!

thick and creamy oatmeal!

Speaking of which, I wonder what do cook for lunch? My husband had to go help his brother so there would be only my brother and I. On the way back from the beach, I bought salmon, smelt fish and shrimps. Hm…


boiled spinach, baked acorn squash and soft tofu (eaten with organic ketchup)

these are yummy!

baked smelt fish. These are so tiny! I should make more. I only ate 1 and brother finished the rest

      Yup! Actually you can eat tofu with anything! Sweet or savory. I love tofu so much and it’s so healthy too! Fried smelt fish are the best but not too healthy so I baked them instead 🙂 Still good!
