Beach run fail, steamed veggies, Mr & Mrs Clean

05 Jul

Today was beach run FAIL. We both didn’t feel like getting up and drove down to the beach for our beach run. However, that didn’t stop me completing cardio workout for today. I did 30 minutes run outside the house and 25 minutes of P90X Cardio X. I felt something would be missing if I didn’t workout in the morning. After I started working out in the morning since 5 months ago, morning workout becomes part of my routine now.

Breakfast was bunch of bread from some Chinese bakery, given by my mother-in-law. I love these Chinese bakery or I’d say Asian bakery bread, very fluffy and smells nice. I tried not to eat too much of these, because of the empty calories and the fat, but after a nice workout earlier, these are my treats 😀

Ken and I shared these breads

shared this red bean bread with Ken

Had two of these ham and cheese good, but yet so evil haha

After breakfast, we started our usual routine….house cleaning. I skipped cleaning the kitchen counter last week so this week for sure I can’t skip that! The kitchen wasn’t dirty or anything but I am pretty anal when it comes to cleaning. Just because you don’t see it dusty or dirty, it doesn’t mean it’s clean either. Usually I started my cleaning after lunch, but today our lunch was pretty much just whatever left over in the fridge, and just need to add more veggies and we’re ready to eat!

big ass spring mix salad from yesterday, sushi roll from my mother in law, rice, chinese veggies (choy sum) and baked chicken. The only thing I cooked today was the steamed chinese veggies (choy sum)

had 2 or 3 of the spring mix salad after this plate

half corn cob

We spent the entire afternoon cleaning the house. I was wiping all the furniture, windows and doors for the entire house..literally. Ken was cleaning all 3 bathrooms and my brother, who was napping the whole afternoon, finally did his part by vacuuming the carpeted area.

took a little break in between by snacking on low fat yogurt with peach and papaya

I missed my whole wheat bread and the ones from Rudi’s Organic Bakery were long gone, so I baked my Vegan Friendly Whole Wheat Bread. Turned out gorgeous!

can't wait to have these w/ PB for tomorrow bfast!

Dinner was very similar to lunch with these additions:

tomatoes and egg

corn - i had sweet and good!

steamed green bean... a bit too long

Question: How detail are you when cleaning?
I am not a big fan of cleaning but once I got into my groove I could be very detail. For example, I could be wiping every single book on the shelf or wipe all the doors, top of door frames, and everything in my sight that I can wipe.
