Sunday was perfect not just because
- I had a great breakfast
- I worked until 2PM and finish week 1′s work plan!
- Had an amazing Hot Vinsaya Class at DownDogYoga
- Finally found a ripped kabocha!
but more importantly because
- I’ve been spending <5 min to prepare breakfast lately
- I worked hard all this week (8-9 hrs a day)
- I put all I got in this challenging Intermediate Class and formed a pool of sweat in my mat
- I kept searching for a better kabocha!
My point is Sunday (technically afternoon) was amazing not just because what I’ve done in the afternoon, but what I’ve done all this week! If I haven’t worked hard enough, I wouldn’t enjoy so much this half day off. If I hadn’t challenged my body to its edge, I wouldn’t enjoy so much the last 5 min of shavasana. Everything we do has an aim. Sometimes we don’t like it or even struggle with it and it refuses to reveal its purpose until the very end. But don’t give up! Keep trying, be persistent and one day all makes sense!
Now, do it yourself! Construct a sentence with: If I haven’t ….., I wouldn’t…..
Breakfast: kabocha spiced waffle topped with this Peanut Butter sauce and preserve (need to finish the jar soon)
Okay. I have to make justice for FitNutz. The last time I tried it in my oats and didn’t taste a thing and thought it was bland. My fault! It’s not supposed to eat that way. Yesterday I prepared properly as it’s indicated, adding 2-3 tbsp water to dissolve it and used it as sauce for my pancake. It tastes MUCH better this way!!!
wanna recipe? here it comes
Kabocha spiced waffle
Ingredients (for 2 serv)
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup roasted kabocha
- 4 egg whites

- vanilla/ginger powder/cinnamon/nugmet

Method: super easy! Ground everything in the food processor and make the waffle!
Lunch (2.30PM) I’d grab my arm first if I didn’t have leftovers.
Dessert: a little indulgence
no! the chocolate is not the indulgence part, but the coffee because I already had a big mug in the morning. So second cup is indulgence!
Dinner: sauteed cauliflower, cabbage, black fungus and dry shrimp.
chinese vegetarian chicken with black fungus and shitake mushrooms
served with a nutritious porridge (black rice, chinese dates, seaweed, white fungus and dry longan)
I keep my food rainbow!
