Motor mouth

3 06 2008

Yes there is MORE I had last night after my snack overload! My stomach was feeling pretty empty, so I had a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice (I squeezed those babies myself!) but ended up drinking just half of my hard-squeezing work! Followed by a teeny-tiny portion of Asian meatball stirfry with mushrooms & snap peas. Aaand FINALLY my tummy was satisfied!


This morning I obviously had cereal since we have a pantry full of cereal to last us for years! You can’t really see everything I put in here, but my cereal bowl was a mish-mash  of Nature’s Path Flax Plus Raisin Bran, Fiber First, about 2 tbsp worth of Kashi Go Lean Crunch then topped with more raisins & cinnamon! YUM.. why choose one when you can have all of them?!

Then I was off to the gym for a satisfying hour-long workout! My in-car-post-workout-munchies were some leftover organic unsweetened banana chips & raisins! I’m obsessed with these little dehydrated yumminess!


So my intentions were to go to the mall and return a shirt from H&M but ended up coming out with 5x more stuff! Oh well, everything was a pretty good deal.. floral babydoll top, bow-tie tank, tank dress, 2 basic tanks (2 for $10!) Oh yes, I’m a happy camper shopper! 😀

Lunch was a find-whatever-in-the-fridge-and-plate-it kind of meal today. Tuna Salad (made with nf plain yogurt, relish, tsp of mayo & pepper), Pita chips made from 1/2 a pita, Cucumber slices dipped in soy-ginger dressing.

Plus had some mini Corn on the Cobs! Could anyone live on corn like me?!

 Made another Baked Apple Crisp but only ended up finishing half of this since lunch filled me up nicely!

When I got off from work I was close to starving but dinner wasn’t ready yet, so I had 1/2 of a Crunchy Peanut Butter Clif Bar to tide me over.. but hungry me ended up eating the other half 😛

Dinner was kind of on the bland side (Shh.. don’t tell the bf’s mother!!). Slow-cooked chicken breast & green beans sauteed in soy sauce. Had the smallest portion I could get away with (without being rude!) but I really just wanted a bowl of cereal for dinner haha

& a Pear with some Raisin Bran Cereal closes the day!

22 days until vacation time!! 😀 😀 😀

Oh and the bf won extra points today surprising me with 2 dozen roses for no reason! 🙂 Too bad they don’t like all that great when I transferred them to a vase.. I cut random stems&leaves, placed it in anywhere.. yeah, I wouldn’t be the crappiest florist 😛


Closet full of yoga wear

23 05 2008

Today was deja vu from last Thursday! Went down to Kitsilano again bright and early for the yoga wear warehouse sale. The sale is ending next weekend so I decided I better stock up since their clothes are really well made (very similar to Lululemon, I think) but the prices are seriously dirt cheap.

Another recycled picture.. for breakfast had my usual oatmeal with flax, cinnamon, raisins, bananas but ate it along this time with a spoonful of natural pb and a couple walnuts. The combination of flax + oats + nuts kept my hunger away for a really long time! 

My yoga haul for the day! 1 pair of capris & yoga pants, 3 pairs of shorts, t-shirt, and 2 more sports bras. You can never have enough sports bras! I think I’m GOOD with workout gear for a while.. 

Had a juicy pear when I got back. 

The bf & I ate at the best Japanese restaurant ever not too long ago, Akashi. I got the Salmon BBQ salad which basically was greens with a miso dressing and salmon cooked medium rare fanned on top. I crave for it all the time but since the restaurant is a little on the pricey side and with 2 broke college students, let’s say my cravings can’t be satisfied all of the time 😦 

Sooo I decided to make my own version.. Mandarin Salmon Salad! I posted it up in the “Recipes” page and it was suuuper easy to make.

Best. Salad. Ever. If I say so myself 😉

My quick snack of walnuts & raisins before heading off to work! 

Lunch filled a huge salad bowl, so I had a small bit of that for dinner along with another small pear and a Manila mango. One of the things I loved about the Philippines when I went to go visit were all of the mango trees. When they were ripe, mangoes would just drop from the sky and everyone would just pick them up from the ground and take them home. Raining mangoes = my dream come true. 

I could literally live on tropical fruits for the rest of my life! 

Fridays I have early shifts, so I’m going to force myself to wake up early so I can squeeze in a good workout at the gym before I take on a looong day at work.
