I’m still trying hard to balance work, workout, sleep 7-8 hours, eat properly, some relaxing time and BLOGGING! I kept my challenge on working out in the morning…. Woke up at 5.45am, did 45 min yoga, but I guess yoga is better to do at night than in the morning, because it didn’t wake me up as cardio did to me. I dunno.. I’ll try few days more and see if I have to adjust my plan. But the advantage of doing yoga instead of going to the gym was to have time to have breakfast at home. Another bowl of green oats.. This time with rolled oats instead of oatbran. Same method, same ingredients but not the same texture nor taste. It wasn’t that creamy and spinach flavor was noticeable, I had to add raisin to make it taste better. So, I guess I’ll stick to oat bran or add additional ingredients. And a big spoonful of Pumpkin Maple AB.
For lunch I packed brown rice, scrambled egg with zucchini (made the night before) and leftover sautéed sprouts. For snack: yogurt + mix of berries and kamut flakes.
I’ve been having teeth pain lately, not intense but still bother me. So I made couple of phones calls and got an appointment with a dentist. I went during lunch time and came back without even meeting the dentist!!! What happened you might wonder? Well……. The place was sooooooooo nasty!!! The people I saw were sooooooooo weird! So, after waiting for 15 min I told the secretary who had a bunch of snacks on her desk that I had to go, and I left! I don’t know if I did it right, but I just didn’t feel confident about this clinic to treat my pain. Have you ever had experience like that? That basically you escaped from doctor office because the place didn’t entitle you with confidence?
Longer lunch hour wasted means longer day of work… I worked until 6.30pm instead of 5.30pm. Back home, after 45 min dinner and today’s lunch was ready. Shrimp cooked in a homemade spicy tomato sauce, sautéed Chinese broccoli with garlic, leftover sprouts and porridge.
Dessert: steamed kabocha. (I dunno what’s my fav dessert: chocolate pudding or kabocha, what do you think?)
I was tired last night and went to bed at 9.30pm. Sorry if I didn’t comment on your blog, I do read your posts, but until I find a great way to deal with everything within 24 hs, commenting will be sporadic. Apology in advance.
Sorry that pics are not in order that they're supposed to be. I'm at work and dunno how to cut/past pics.
