Hi everyone! How’s your Sunday going so far? For those who are in the US, anyone watching the Superbowl? I am not a big fan of sports so NOPE, though the commercials are usually pretty interesting. I heard for a mere seconds of commercial spot, it could cost million $$.
Anyway, today I’ve been sniffing, have scratchy throat and a little lightheaded.
It might be because yesterday I didn’t wear enough clothing when hanging out with my friends. More on this later below. But that didn’t stop me to do today’s workout from Bodyrock.tv. Hope by sweating it out would ease me up a bit.
I’ve been drinking this Chinese sore throat herb syrup to ease it up.
Anyway, yesterday I was out for almost a whole day.
It started with my morning car service appointment, which I was told would take 2.5 hours (40k service, they had to do some fuel injection cleaner). Good thing they provide free wifi so I brought my laptop 🙂
They also provided free tea, coffee, cappucino etc and sugar loaded carbs.
Even during my pre-Primal/Paleo, I usually don’t eat sugary carbs like donuts and pastries.
I watched Inception on my laptop and I’d say that story is pretty good. Something about a dream. I won’t spoil it for you in case any of you haven’t watched it.
Turned out my car took about 3 HOURS!! I rushed back home, quickly did my workout, showered, ate the last 2 of tea eggs that I made couple days ago and went to the lunch gathering at BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse.
I was about an hour late, but wasn’t the last one. There were 2 more after me. 😛
They ordered some appetizers. I just avoided anything deep fried, grains and gluten. Besides it was a good thing I snacked 2 tea eggs before I came so I wasn’t super starving and started indulging the carbies.
Totally skipped these:
I ordered their Old-Fashioned Pot Roast with oven roasted vegetables – substituted their mash potato & gravy with extra steamed veggies and a cup of fruits.
The pot roast was super tender and tasty! It really inspired me to make my own too. Shouldn’t be too hard. The only thing is I don’t have a slow cooker but I think I should be able to make it with my pressure cooker.
Cake for M, the birthday boy.
Cake for D, our friend who’s going back to Taiwan for good later of this month.
I had a slice of each cake. I know it’s gluten, sugar = not primal approved. But this is when 80/20 rule comes in. There are times that I can cheat a little bit. This gathering is for M’s birthday and D’s going away party. Besides I haven’t seen my friends for about 3 months.
But we weren’t so lucky! The lanes were all full and no open lanes until 2 hours later.
I was totally sucked! Despite I am a regular exerciser, I couldn’t even bowl properly! Only got one strike and lots of ZERO! Both games!
None of us were hungry but the day was still early so 7 of us headed to Tea Station.
They also offered me some but I politely refused because I wasn’t hungry. In fact, I wasn’t hungry at all. I had a pretty good lunch and good thing I finished my whole portion. Most people bagged their lunch, but not me. Even though I finished my lunch, I wasn’t feeling sluggish or tired. On the other hand I felt energized. Even watching my other friends having their dinner, while I only drank my Star Fruit tea (the only one of a few of caffeine free drink choices I had here), I wasn’t even craving for it. Being primal surely nice, eh?
Today I went to stash up my grocery and found this!
It tastes like onion to me – without that onion smell. It was ok, not over the top. I’ve been wanting to try this ever since see some bloggers posted about it. But I think it’s not something I’d crave for.
Are you good in any sports?
I’m really bad in any kinds of sports, despite I do regular exercise. Anything with hands, feet and ball coordination, count me out!
