Lack of Energy

26 Mar

Hi all, how’s your Saturday going so far?

I’ve been feeling SUPER LAZY today, though this morning I managed to squeeze in my workout that supposedly for yesterday.

Fueled myself with leftover Costco chicken

Consequences for not eating proper post workout meal (starchy carbs like yams & sweet potatoes): I felt SUPER SLUGGISH, lack of energy, fatigue later on! It wasn’t fun feeling.

So after got home from grocery and other errands, I popped all yams that I got at the store in the oven and nuked one to be consumed right away!
Now I don’t have to worry about tomorrow’s post workout meal anymore.

Got mandarin oranges for $2.99 for 3lbs bag – SCORE! I LOVE THESE THINGS!

I decided not to go with K to his parent’s house for dinner today. Instead I drove myself to check out Sprouts Market Henry’s Farmers Market.

My goodies

Strawberries for 97 cents/box -got 4 so total $4 for 4 lbs -SCORE! Taste wise: kinda bland -unlike the one I got from Farmer’s Market last week (super sweet but it was a whole big box for $11 – I guess it was equivalent of 4 lbs?) Oh well I got what I paid for, right? At least Fage Full fat greek yogurt was $3.79 – MUCH cheaper than Albertsons or Whole Paycheck ($4.99)

More goodies: found pastured raised 100% natural grass fed beef, Applegate bacon and Henry’s brand no preservative sausages!(gotta keep these for my quick to serve protein!)

Since I already used up our joint account grocery budget this morning for getting grain-fed beef from regular market, I opted to get small pieces of grass fed beef. Now I know I can get grass fed beef from around where I live!

I found my kryptonites

100% dried mango -no added sugar

unsweetened banana chips! I munched LOTS of these in the store

I ate a bit too much banana chips that now I’m feeling kinda sick of it. The dried mangoes were a bit too sweet for me so I couldn’t eat it too much, which was good.

Anyway, I LOVE Henry’s Farmers Market. It’s very very similar to Sprouts Market (very homey, with bulk bins of nuts, dried fruits etc) and the best thing is? It’s much closer to where I live compared to Sprouts. Now I know where to shop for grass fed beef and other organic stuff. Woot!

Something I want to talk about:
I was browsing through my old posts and read what I wrote in the past and seems like I’ve never really had a consistent topic. Some posts I might write about food of the day, some about recipes, some just random stuff like my life etc. Sometimes I wonder, if by having a non-defined blog topic actually a turn off for new readers. Some big bloggers that I’ve seen usually always have one consistent topic in their posts – either being vegetarian/vegans/primal/paleo, informative/education, restaurant reviews, recipes etc. Even this morning, K mentioned that I’m not being consistent. One day I’d be doing certain stuff and the next day my thought would change to something else. – scattered brain?

I’m sorry if I’m not making any sense, but it starts to bugging me a bit and how would I want to continue with this blog.

Have a great night!

    I have sluggish days like that as well … but I never manage a workout then. 😦

    I don’t think your blog is non-defined! It’s about paleo nutrition and cooking, and some things you do in your daily life. I reall like your blog!

    I always suggest to blog about what you want to blog about. Doesn’t necessarily have to be a certain topic. I read a lot of food blogs, but sometimes it’s very refreshing to read a non food post and just learn something about the blogger. Just have fun with whatever you’re blogging about and don’t try to make it a chore. Hope you had a great weekend, Jos!

        I agree with LeQuan. Keep up the good work!!!

        Before I forget, bo bo cha cha is a coconut dessert with sweet potato, taro, and banana. Served iced or hot. Next to ice kachang, this is my FAVE SE Asian dessert!!! ;D
