Desperate Weekend

15 May

Thank you everyone for all your supporting and encouraging comments on my last post! This definitely a tough situation for both Hubby K and I but I’ll try to stay positive and keep our heads up. We might want to take this opportunity to take a little break before starting our job hunting. Besides we need to update our info and put our stuff together before applying. Again, thank you.

And despite the title of the post, don’t worry, I wasn’t totally super desperate and down. I’ve been rewatching Desperate Housewives older seasons for this whole weekend. Sort of having a Desperate Housewives marathon. Yes, I am not kidding.

Our weather has been pretty gloomy and cold since yesterday. It was actually raining earlier this morning.

Saturday breakfast: the usual loose leaf tea, 2 slices of Egg Loaf Frittata and some mac nuts plus shredded coconut flakes

Then we went off for our usual grocery shopping.
Lunch was more leftover: char siew slices, one small purple yam and steamed veggies.

After lunch I precut some ingredients for Yellow Tamarind Cabbage soup that I’m planning to make for today. Snacked on strawberries and some mac nuts while watching more Desperate Housewives.

Dinner was steamed spinach with Lemon Date Chicken which I prepared in the afternoon.

Sunday breakfast was courtesy of Hubby K. He prepared this plate in the morning.

Today’s lunch was 2 big bowls of Yellow Tamarind Cabbage Soup that I cooked this morning topped with leftover cooked grassfed ground beef. Kudos for precutting the ingredients on previous day. 😀

Hubby K always loves my homemade whole wheat bread so I made one loaf today (with dried cranberries and almond waste from my homemade Almond milk)

I won’t lie, I had one slice of my homemade whole wheat bread and it was delicious! Super soft and moist. Nothing beats a freshly baked homemade bread. Paleo or not, I savored this a lot.

Dinner today was pretty similar to lunch so no pic. You got the idea. 🙂

Well I don’t have the obligation to get up super early anymore starting tomorrow so I think I might wanna stay up a bit and continue watching more Desperate Housewives. Besides, I didn’t feel sleepy yet and it was 10:30pm while I was typing this post. Hubby K on the other hand actually went to bed earlier than me now. Hm what a contrast huh? And I haven’t been working out since yesterday which might explain why I wasn’t as tired. For the whole day since yesterday I was pretty much sitting in front of my computer watching DH. Half of the time, I also made an effort to sit on my stability ball, which gave some good sores to my core muscles. 🙂 So did it still count as a workout?

Anyway, good night everyone!

    I’ve been thinking a lot of you lately and cross all my fingers that you and your husband will get along well! Thank you that you were so kind to support my study and retweet it although you must have so many things going on in your mind yourself!

    Regardning the bouncing ball, I’d definitely count that as a workout! 😀

    Sorry to hear about your run of bad luck, I’m glad you had a chilled out weekend. When you eat so good, one cheat every once in a while does you no harm. I think if you want a treat, you’re better off with a real one than a paleo one, and that bread looks pretty good:)
