Rough but short week ahead

30 Jun

aah, i hate the fact that i'm flying out tonight.  the next two weeks will definitely not be good for eating more "health conscience", because i will be traveling a lot, and won't have access to the good foods.  when i come back, this is when i will be cleaning out my pantry. 🙂

6:30 – banana and an egg white.  i was suppose to eat the whole egg, but i'm was so used to just throwing out the egg yolk, that it comes natural to me now.

10:30 – gluten free cereal

11:30 – did uphill intervals for 30 minutes.  worked on biceps and shoulders, then walked for another 30 minutes

1:15 – kale salad with tomatoes, cranberries, and pomegranate dressing.  watermelon for dessert.

4:00 – tarmarind

6:30 – made steak salad for myself, and steak with red rice for tran.  i had a couple bits of the red rice.

8:20 – 2 hard boiled eggs.  i got lazy to make an omelet.

9:30 to 10:30 – went to starbucks and got a sugar free vanilla, non-fat caramel machiatto.  before my nutrition class, i had a small snack..yogurt, cantelope, and strawberries

1:15 – spinach, romaine salad with kidney beans, eggs, celery, and corn.  topped with olive oil and balsamic vinegerette.  also had a small cup of veggie soup.  the killer was 2 blueberry muffins(small ones)

6:00 – kimmie's bbq – 1 small piece of korean beef, two turkey sliders, some bbq rib-eyed beef, pita chips and dip.  i think this meal was at least 600 calories.

6:30 – 1 hard-boiled egg

7:00 – ran for 35 minutes then did yoga for 90 minutes

10:30 – i had some tamarind, yogurt and cantelope, and one tbsp of my mom's soup that tran was eating

1:30 – went to an engagement party.  let me sum up what i ate: pad thai, tocino, fried egg rolls(lumpia), flan, basil chicken, and some guava cake.  i think i had like 8 small egg rolls, which is sorta overboard, but they were spread out between 1:30 and 10 pm.  so i didn't totally stuff myself.  NO ALCOHOL TOO….

i can just feel the weekend coming…

26 Jun

i woke up this morning, but my body felt really tired, so i decided to rest this morning.  i should do some sort of cardio today.

6:00 – 1 hard-boiled egg and a banana.  i also had coffee with nonfat milk

9:20 – another hard-boiled egg

11:30 – went to sweet tomatoes, and i was soooooooooooo GOOD! LOL.  i had a spinach salad with kidney beans, garbanzo beans, corn, a little bit of beets, and some cucumbers.  i topped it off with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.  then i had a cup of vegetable soup.  i didn't have bread, or the wonderful blueberry muffins.  **SIGH**.

2:00 – Fuji apple

3:00 – strawberries and some tamarind

6:00 – i did 2 set of 8 SELF strengthening exercises.  then sean and i ran the long route(close to 4 miles).  it was a good workout

8:00 – i made chicken curry with spinach and carrots last night.  the boys had it with rice, while i just wrapped the chicken in a brown rice tortilla.  then i caved and had some of my grandma's dessert.  it was definitely not gluten free(made of sweet rice), and definitely high in sugar.  *SIGH*
