Stuck on my chair

29 May

Well, not exactly, but 90% of my activity today was watching anime online. I used to like anime (Japanese cartoon) a lot in the past, now it has been decreased a lot since there were not many good anime around.

Anyway, we went to the beach this morning for our usual jog/walk/run whatever you wanted to call. My husband jogged along the way while I just did between brisk walking and jogging. My right foot was still a bit hurt so I didn’t want to put too much pressure. I’m considering to see a foot specialist. Before I went to the beach, I had a glass of protein powder mixed in water to give me some energy. I felt my stomach was super empty and I knew I wouldn’t last long if I didn’t do something about it.

On our way back home, we stopped by at a market to shop groceries. My fridge was super empty and definitely need to shop some. I bought:
3 romaine lettuce
2 lbs tomatoes
3 lbs carrots
1/2 lbs mixed nuts
2 fishes
1 lb peeled and deveined shrimps
a bag of cherries
1 bag of baby carrots
2 red bell peppers
2 green bell peppers
1/2 lbs raw almond nuts
3 packs of spinach
4 lbs non fat plain yogurt
4 packs of blackberries

All of these are about $25! That was a lot of stuff and yet I only spent less than $30! 🙂

After cleaned up and showered, I fixed this delish breakfast for me: 1 slice of whole wheat toast I made last night w/ PB and 1 cup of non fat plain yogurt topped with Kashi cereal.

My husband had the sandwich that I got from my co worker yesterday. I had 1-2 bites. It was good but too much mayo for my taste.

And he’s so sweet to give me a cup of hot tea. I had 2 cups of this.

We talked a bit after finishing breakfast, our usual ritual on every weekend morning. The breakfast was kind of late (around 9:30 am) so we weren’t hungry by lunch time yet. Regardless, we still had to eat at regular lunch time. Just a habit we’d like to keep. So we kept our lunch light..lots of veggies (boiled spinach and left over boiled broccoli from last night) and left over soy sauce chicken.

Btw between breakfast and lunch, I was snacking through these bad boys….ugh…the roasted mixed nuts and corn kernels were hard to resist. The dry roasted raw almonds weren’t as much temptation though. I had to go easy on these unless I want another painful canker sore popped up in my mouth again.

Today was a bit warmer than yesterday and the day before. In fact this weather made me lazy. My husband was such a good man, he swept and wiped our living room and kitchen floor while I was stuck on my chair, watching anime online. To top it off, he even cut some fruits for me.. Man, I am such a bad wife.

The computer room was getting a bit too warm so I went downstairs and washed some cherries as my second snack. I asked my husband to take a break and joined me having these sweet delicious cherries.

I remembered we bought a tin of peanut flavored wafers, so we had some of those as well, along with some almonds.

So after finishing some snacks, I went back upstairs and continued watching the anime online while my husband continued his cleaning. See, I am such a bad wife? Leaving all the houseworks to the husband.

Saturday is the day my husband goes to his parents’ place for a dinner. I usually tag along, even though most of their foods are not quite fit into my current diet, but this time I decided to skip it. Yeah, I’m such a bad wife and daughter-in-law as well. Good thing my mother-in-law isn’t the picky type and the best part is we don’t speak the same language. She doesn’t speak English and I don’t speak Chinese. It’s good in some ways, less misunderstanding.

This whole day I wasn’t quite hungry but I still wanted to have dinner at my usual time. Since it’ll be only me and my brother, I made a bowl of salad and a steamed fish.

romaine lettuce, baby carrots, 1/2 red bell peppers

white trout fish..first time trying was ok actually.

2 cans of garbanzo beans, a bit of EVOO, garlic powder and a dash of salt

after the blend

left over in the blender. Couldn't reach it so added more water..a bit too much it was a bit watery in the end. I used that for my salad dressing

after dinner- noticed I finished 1/2 of the salad bowl alone..haha. My brother finished the rest of the salad..I think
