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!)
