Moves and Eats

31 May

Hi everyone, hope most of you enjoy the extra weekend (for those who are in the US). Sorry for the lack of updates but seriously I didn’t do much differently other than usual eats and some moves 😛

Wanna know what I had? Well a little hint, I didn’t exactly have squeaky clean Paleo approved food.

Let’s start off from Sunday
Breakfast/pre workout meal
3 over easy fried eggs sprinkled with Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning salute and sliced of a whole avocado

For lunch I made some grass fed beef patties, seasoned with curry powder, Red Boat fish sauce, green onions, pepper, puree onion/garlic/shallots and an egg, pan fried with coconut oil.

Plus more yuca root fries

You’d think I’ll dig in to the lunch? Er, not so fast. I brazed myself to complete this killer 600 reps fat burner workout, which roughly I finished about 1 hour (including rest in between first and second round). I’ve never sweated so much in my life!

After that workout, it was good to devour this lunch plate 😀

As usual I had my afternoon snack bowl of fruits (strawberries and cherries) and might be some undocumented amount of macadamia nuts.
Can you believe I already finished a bag of these already? I finally decided to do subscribe and save order from Amazon since my local Costco doesn’t carry any of these babies!! 😦

For some reason I didn’t take my dinner pic but I think it was a super simple meal of some steamed broccoli and 2 grass fed beef patties. I wasn’t that hungry. Yuca roots always kept me full for a long time.

3 over easy fried eggs (seasoned with TJ 21 seasonings) served with steamed broccoli and sliced of a whole avocado

Eggs for breakfast in 2 days in a row? Let me tell you, I’ve been OUT of eggs last week and I missed them so much!

Hubby K brought back his mom’s homemade Chinese sticky rice (zongzi) the night before so I had some bites of it for my lunch, along with last of yuca roots, steamed bok choy and last of Bo Kho.

I love Chinese sticky rice (zongzi) and prior Paleo I could finish the entire thing in a second! It usually filled with some Chinese sausage, peanuts, and some pork meat. My mom’s homemeade zongzhi is something that I missed dearly. Now I know just to have a little bite of it or else I’d be a bottomless pit! Yes, that sticky rice is surely addicting!

As I thought I wanted to take a rest day, but my inner side kept bugging me to at least do some short exercise challenge, so I did 300 reps squats. Boy, I surely felt it today on my lower back and buns!

For dinner, I made Pan Seared Lamb Shoulders seasoned with Homemade Taco seasonings. The direction was exactly the same as this Crispy Taco Chicken.
Served with sliced of whole avocado and Baked Mixed Veggies (cauliflower, carrots, tomatoes, with 2 Tbsp Kerrygold Salted butter)

And I had some bowl of fruits afterward and called it a night!

Have you had any Chinese sticky rice before?

    Yeah… zong zi are SO addictive. Totally reminds me of childhood. Ahh…! 🙂

    300 squats?!?! Come on girl. Do Murph! But make sure you break it up though, like 5 pull-ups and 10 pull-ups. You can do it!!! 😀 (I’m such an instigator!)

    Damn, I do like sticky rice…but I haven’t been home in awhile, so I haven’t been able to try any. My grandma used to make them all the time when I was younger — but I was never really a fan. I still am not crazzzzy about them, but I think the older I get, the more I could enjoy them

    I’m like you with the simple carbs – totally and hopelessly addicted. 😦 I’m seriously thinking about going on a 100 % sugar and simple carb detox, which also means staying away from all alcohol … I eat quite healthily overall, but the sweet stuff tends to sneak in again and again, and I like a nice glass of wine, but I feel that I get moody and unwell easily lately. And since I had two stressful weeks, I feel a bit off the wagon. Caffeine has the same effect on me, and I drank quite a lot of coffee again. I just have to start with one mug of coffee or some pieces of candy a day, and I’m back in within a few days. 😦 But it’ll be hard …

      I haven’t even tried 100% sugar and simple carb detox..that sounds pretty challenging. For me, if I actually try to restrict something 100%, the more cravings I’ll I just go easy on it.

    Yes, sticky rice is so addictive! I think it must be the gluten in the rice or something, it always makes my tummy ache after eating it, but it is so yummy!

      Is there gluten in sticky rice? Probably because of the sugar content that makes it addictive?
