Recap continue: eats, baking goodies and good news!

This sporadic post mode will continue! I just can't find a moment where I can sit down and write an appropriate post. sorry guys, I either post at night or have a good sleep, I know you will forgive me if I choose the later!
Weekend was fabulous.... so enjoyable and did all my to-do list. Let me do a recap of feature meals like Erica does too (I won't post all my snacks)
Saturday: yoga + nap + groceries + movie + baking
Sunday: yoga + tv + cooking/preparing for the week meal + tea with a friend
Eats:Baking goodies:Monday: gym + dentist + work (extra long)
Eatspaella that I made on weekendTuesday: yoga at home + work (1.5 hours longer than usual)
EatsUpdates of June's Challenge:
  • workout: I'm following the plan and it's getting easier and easier (I don't need the alarm to wake me up ^_^)
  • clean eating: good good! No process food! All homemade!
  • One green oat a day: almost! I guess one no-green oats a day won't hurt me! :) Because it's not a MUST kind of things to do, I didn't feel I should stick to the rule just because I set a rule. Yey~ I'm not just a rule follower, I reason sometimes! ^_^
  • Use pantry items: really good progress on this one. I used more than 3 items: baking supplies, black fungus, canned baby corns.
  • Smaller meals and dessert: I kept only one dessert after dinner, either dairy free pudding or steamed kabocha!
I'm really happy about how I'm doing with it.

Good news:
  • I'm going to Argentina again!!! Yeah~~~ I already booked the ticket for weeks to spend in the heaven with Star! ^_^
  • I'm sleeping like a baby every night!!! I'm so happy that I'm enjoying sleeping again!
  • Work is progressing well/fast, making my boss really happy!
Question: Any good news? Any travel plan?

So glad you're sleeping AND taking another trip to Argentina- that is so exciting! We're traveling to moreee weddings this summer and we're going to Hilton Head, SC for a week (my favorite yearly trip). Great eats- your baking looks amazing. Have a good Wednesday

WOOHOO FOR TRAVEL!!! I'm quite jealous... I'm not planning on any travel until MAYBE august if I can afford it!

Gina said...

Argentina? I'm so jealous, I would love to go there, it looks so beautiful (in pictures...). Looks like you've been busy cooking, I guess that's what it takes when you decide to go "process free", good for you!!!

My travels this summer include a trip to Lake Erie (this weekend!) but only for two days :( Then Florida in July! I'm excited, we will be there for about 5 days, I need a break!

I like how you broke down your days into 4 or 5 words. Short and too the point.
I'm not traveling until October, but we booked a trip to New Orleans at the end of October! And I'm planning on going to AZ in November.

I've never seen corn on the cob that colour before, it looks beautiful.

I have no holiday plans as yet :(

Gina said...

Too much fiber? Well, the phytates in fiber can actually impede the absorption of some very important minerals: Calcium and iron. So, while fiber is great, too much isn't good. Too much would be more than 40 grams ( in my opinion). This is hard to do. If you think you eat more than that, make sure you are getting plenty of iron and calcium in your diet!

Jessica said...

That's wonderful news about your trip- I would loove to go to argentina!

No trips - too many doctor bills this year!
