Weekend Eats and Poker

05 Jun

I’m happy to let you know that starting tomorrow I’ll be back bodyrocking like before thanks to my healed lower back pain 😀 When I woke up this morning, I knew that my lower back pain was about 90% healed. However, I decided not to do workout too hard so I did a 40 minute yoga (I made up my own sequence btw). I haven’t done a full yoga for a while so this morning yoga was really good. Yesterday I did a quick 12 minute strength training, which I came up on my own.

Breakfast/post yoga meal
Baked Japanese sweet potato with a tin of sardines – YUM!

A little better than yesterday’s breakfast – 2 slices of Chocolate Espresso Gluten Free Cake with sliced strawberries

Lunch was really simple: steamed spinach, sliced of whole tomato, Baked Mashed Cauliflower with Beef (it was ok, not great so won’t post recipe, unless you really want me to :P) topped with macadamia nuts

Ironically, it almost looked identical with yesterday’s lunch (also my dinner) (just different type of greens and fat)

Spent the entire afternoon cleaning up, organized paperwork, paid bills etc and by dinner time, I had the urge to be a little more creative on my food so I made a big batch of Asian Style Cauliflower “Fried Rice.”
This time the combos were 1 cauliflower head,sliced beef milanesa, sliced egg omelet, diced carrots, minced shallot and garlic, chopped 3 stalks of green onions (white and greens separated)

Seasoned with salt, white pepper, Red Boat fish sauce, sesame oil, and coconut aminos.

I LOVED my dinner today! I had 1 1/4 of this plate.

After dinner, Hubby K and I were playing poker. This was my first time playing it and I think I started to understand the game a bit more. Gotta be a good in bluffing and reading your opponent’s reaction and have a poker face.

We used tea bags as our “chips” (each of us had 10). If one lost all the tea bags, had to take off one shirt..haha.

I won at first round and Hubby K had to take off one of his shirt.

Unfortunately, in the end he won back his shirt and I LOST and I had to lose one of my shirt (still wearing a tank top, so get your mind out of the gutter) and sadly I didn’t win it back…*sigh*

I don’t usually play cards and never a big fan of it. Once in a while I do play Black Jack if I go to Las Vegas, but I don’t usually play big. I’m waaay too cheap to just gamble my money away like that. But the poker game that we played today was quite interesting and fun at the same time, probably because we only had to use tea bags as the chips, not our real money.

Any card games you’re good at or like to play?

Have you made up your own workout sequence?

Have a great night!

    I know it sucks to have pack pain! I am glad you are better 🙂 My husband loves, loves, loves poker. He says the key to wining is to focus, not drink, and be patient. I can do the first two, the last though, not so much!

    I’m so happy your back is finally better! 😀

    Never have played poker, but I love Doppelkopf (a German card games, a little similar to skat, but with four players, and two of them play together each which has to be found out during the game).

    Glad to hear the good news about you back, Jos. Keep an eye on it and take good care of it. Did you get my reply email by the way?

    I love poker. It’s such a sneaky little game. Haha. Like you, I’m too cheap to gamble my money away too. So when I play, it’s usually for fun. Haha.

    My boyfriend is obsessed with poker. Myself? I’m not that into it. The only game I’ve ever really won money at was roulette, and that is ALL luck!
