Today was such a “torture” for me. Just imagine, I couldn’t eat and drink for 6 hours because I had a lab exam at the hospital in the afternoon. So in the morning, right after I got up, I chugged down these goodies into my belly before 8 am (the cut off time).
Plus tons of water. This was my biggest breakfast ever. Surprisingly it hold me over until around 3-4 pm (after I was done with the lab exam).
The whole morning I didn’t do much, just sitting and browsing around in front of my computer…trying to conserve the energy here. Luckily the weather had been pretty chilly and overcast for this whole week so I wasn’t feeling thirsty either. But I had to resist a temptation to sip a cup of water. I always drink water every 10-15 minutes, regardless I am thirsty or not. It’s just my habit. So for not drinking water for straight 6 hours made me a bit cranky.
Our bar stools came today (yay)! Ken put them together and now they’re sitting nicely nearby our kitchen island.
Around noon, we headed to the hospital. The appointment was around 2:30pm but I had to be there at 2:00 pm for checking in.
The whole thing took about 1 hour. By the time I finished, immediately I drank the whole bottle of water we brought from home. Not that I was so thirsty, more like my throat and mouth were super dry! It was around 3:30pm and we knew we won’t have enough time to prepare food at home, so we decided to eat out.
We decided to go to this small Korean restaurant. We’ve been to this place couple times before. The food was pretty simple but good. It’s not your typical Korean restaurant, more like Korean fusion. The owner was the chef, waitress and busboy.
After our super late lunch/super early dinner, we headed home and Ken finishing putting together the last bar stool (he finished 2 this morning before we went to the hospital). I on the other hand was preparing stuff for “dinner” and extra food for packing our lunch. Just the usual steam veggies and I made some baked chicken. Also had to bake another wheat bread. The last one I made was GONE already!
Since I couldn’t workout in the morning, I decided to do it before dinner, despite I still could “feel” the food in my stomach. Good thing today was Yoga, so it wasn’t too bad. Got my workout done, I still wasn’t hungry, but I knew I had to eat now or I’d suffer later tonight and couldn’t do my workout properly tomorrow morning.
Btw, for those who’s living in Southern California, did you feel the earthquake this afternoon around 4 pm? We were in the car waiting for the traffic light and I felt the ground was shaking. I thought might be because we were underneath the freeway bridge and there were big trucks passed by, but that wasn’t the case! Seriously, this year I felt the earthquake A LOT more often! Does this mean the end of the world is coming? I always think that I need to prepare an emergency kit, but HOW?? How am I supposed to know what and where I should pack? If I pack everything at home and when the earthquake happens and I am not at home, then it’s pointless.
Anyway, I don’t want to worry too much about it. If it has to happen then it happens. Nothing can stop mother nature.
I felt today I only had 3 big meals and no small meals in between. Kinda weird as I’m soo used to have small bites here and there so I don’t have to have big meal at once. Anyway, it’s getting late….NITE!
