I woke up at 7.30 AM (slept in at 3AM) telling myself: okay. It’s Valentine’s, without Star with me, I can still celebrate it and be happy by my own.
I got up, first thing to feel, terrible headache (not surprisingly :-?)
But I was determined!!! I made a yummy breakfast to boost the spirit!
Vegan Waffle topped with aduki-coconut mousse.
For the waffles I used 3/4 cup WW flour, 4 tbsp flaxmeal diluted in homemade soy & peanut milk, 1 cup soy & peanut milk, 1 tsp baking powder, pinch of salt, vanilla/cinnamon.
It was DELICIOUS, so much that after breakfast I made two batches more to be freezed
Worked a little bit because I knew that would distract me. 😕
Another stir-fry soba for lunch. I love this meal for lunch, quick (<15min), satisfying and tasty! 😉
this one had cabbage, celery, black fungus and chinese sausage.
After lunch I did more thing to boost spirit. Groceries!!!
Got new flours to make some chinese dim sum for breakfast 😉
and I couldn’t wait to try lotus powder, it used to love it! 😀
It is really simple to make, use 1/2 cup of the powder + 1.5 cup of hot water. DONE!
I still love it!!!
And then, I spent 1.5 h trying to pull my car out of the snow! IT WAS THE HARDEST WORKOUT in 2010 so far!!! My arms can barely raise after that. 👿 Snow, I curse you AGAIN!!! At the end, it was a nice guy who helped me out, otherwise I would have to spent 3 hours! I can’t even imagine that!
Exhausted, lying on the couch I thought: I need to exercise more! It’s not possible that I get soooo tired and sore after this.
Bottom line: I felt miserable in Valentine’s. Even I tried to tell myself that it is just a normal day, Star and I can celebrate it any day of the year. But I couldn’t fool myself, I was sad and lonely. 😦
Q: What do you do to boost your spirit when you feel low?
