Yesterday’s Track Tuesday Sesh

Yesterday was an interesting day.

It was raining in the morning, so it made me feel kinda blue. After my classes, I stayed in my room and it became a cave. I did some readings, then watched stuff, then snacked like crazy…

and when I mean  snacked like crazy… I’m talking eating several servings of crackers with hummus, three oranges, a granola bar, and like four sweet potatoes. ALL CARBS, HAHA.

I don’t know why. I was in no mood to workout.

I knew I should probably do something and at least get myself out of the house, and then I remembered that my roommate’s birthday was four days before mine and I had meant to take her out to dinner! Since the first week of school was so crazy, I completely forgot about it until last night.

So I texted her and I told her I wanted to take her out to dinner. She was totally down, and I made it a surprise where I’d take her.

We went to Shin Toe Bul Yi and since it was her first time eating Korean food, I tried to stick with the noob-friendly items.

^And look at her using the chopsticks like a champ! (BTW, she’s about to eat kimchi, which she found out she did not like very much, hahaha).

I ordered the daeji bulgogi (spicy marinated pork) and japchae (fried up noodles with vegetables and beef):

That place actually gives free soon tofu, which was awesome. It had a nice clean flavor and I love eating it with rice.

Then as we were enjoying the food, we looked around at the packed restaurant and realized that every. single. table. had. fried chicken (tongdak). WHOOPS. I guess we ordered wrong, hahahaha.

[I looked up the reviews and only read the first five and I think the fifth one happened to say that the fried chicken wasn’t good… but I guess he was the only one who said that out of the 400+ reviews?]

Anyways, we had plenty leftover and we were still mega-stuffed!

What to do on such full stomachs? LAY DOWN AND SLEEEEEP…

Just kidding. I asked her if she wanted to go to the track and walk around with me and she said, “Yes” (after a little bit of wah wah it’s gonna be so cold, hehehe). I always tell her it’s only cold in the beginning and we’ll warm up as we walk.

So at the track, we just talked and walked at a brisk pace and ended up covering a total of five miles! WOO HOO!

This morning, I did my usual of waking up at 6:00 a.m. to pray, write some things in my prayer journal, then go back to sleep.

I swear… something about waking up at the time makes me think of someone or something other than myself.

Even still, I know that I can’t just pray all the time and do my daily devotions… then not do anything outside of that. I hope to be able to have actions that follow through on the prayers and Bible studies.

When I woke up again at 9:00 a.m., I made some coffee and made my protein breakfast cup souffle wannabe thing.

Oh, garsh. Those little holes and bubbles kinda creep me out (I didn’t notice it when I was eating it).

Anyways, today’s was made with protein powder, one egg, one banana, maybe 2 tbsp coconut milk, and about 1/4 cup almond meal. I blended it up, poured it in the cup, and microwaved it for 2 minutes.

Voila, about 25g of protein for breakfast:

Oh, yeah. I got my farmfreshtoyou box yesterday:

^(there was also a bag of oranges which are not pictured because I was eating some of them yesterday).

So I’m wondering if you noticed… among the normal carrots, lettuce, and apples…

WTH IS THIS???

This, my friends, is a Green Romanesco:

Anyways, I don’t know what I’m going to make with it, but I was intrigued and intimidated by the look of it.

Have you ever seen a Romanesco (also called Romanesco broccoli/cauliflower)?

Have a wonderful Wednesday (it’s sunny and beautiful in San Francisco today!)

  1. Both Dinosaur kale and Romanesco look so beautiful & fresh!!! Romanesco can be cooked in a similar fashion to cauliflower or broccoli, or you could just eat it raw. It has a softer texture than cauliflower. It tastes good.

    • Thank you so much! This is really helpful! I only noticed today that the underneath part reminds me of something like broccoli. You’re right, it is certainly beautiful… and you have a good eye to recognize the “dino kale” as they called it on my list.
