day 894 – munching at gym

image

surely munching away on a chocolate chip cupcake is totally normal at the gym. it wasn’t the typical kind of cupcake off the shelf but a delicious yet nutritious version made with veggies that was devoured in a heartbeat. i am so glad there weren’t seconds available or that might cause some trouble. i’ll just convince myself maybe i worked hard enough and exerted much energy during the workout, and if not, there’s always dodgeball that follows

day 803 – lift them

image

couldn’t get through my conscience without hitting the gym after a horrible eating day. just pigged out terribly bad past two days i feel like crap. no more thanksgiving pigging out for me, eating is so overrated. the horrible combination of bad eating and no exercise makes it so tough to get back into the thick of training, and really showed for it at the gym today. i sure didn’t make the numbers today and that’s a warning i must step it up

day 793 – nacho feast

image

not much in the taco world is healthy but going in with an intent to stay away from as much oily fried food as i can – but this happened. i hope my digestive system and body won’t overreact too much after this feast. it’s been way too long since i had nachos i almost forgot how it’s suppose to taste like. it was flavourful and tasted awesome in many ways, but i will stay try to keep my distance

day 770 – summer wrap up

image

this was actually from yesterday night, marking the end summer vacation with the sweetness of shaved ice. icepik was jam packed tonight i guess many people had the same idea for closing out a good summer. the weather was cold, but my stomach is feeling happy after some heart warming pho and frozen dessert. i haven’t eaten so much in such a long time, unfortunately i don’t think my body thinks that’s a good thing

day 736 – night snacking

image

so happy it’s already humpday wednesday and halfway through!! i can’t express my love for long weekends accounting for short weeks because it makes getting through the week that much easier. it would be a perfect paradise if three day weekends existed every week. man, people are such bad influences on me for tempting me to do night snacking that i could not refrain from. i do feel a little guilty after devouring that toast box

day 717 – chocolate chill

image

it’s friday afternoon, the end of another week and i really craved something cold and chocolatey so i will allow myself to have cheat snack. not sure if i really liked it or my craving liked it. but i would describe timmy chocolate chill as an thick icy chocolate milk, or a poor man’s frappucinno. this better not become a regular craving because it would really get me chubs

day 595 – love from san fran

image

received my souvenir of matcha mochi and my signature shot glass from san francisco. i knew he would get me edibles just to make me feel bad for snacking instead of burning calories. he did try to ease the guilt by saying if it doesn’t have a nutritional label, assume the food is zero calories. i like how he thinks, but i don’t think my body reacts the same way. if i go by that rule, i guess i won’t feel too bad eating all of it

day 567 – chinese new year celebration

image

chinese new year dinner with my family is inevitablly another day of continued heavy food consumption. we were eating away at the table full of food with portions that never seems to get any smaller, but i guess it goes with the chinese tradition of having leftovers. can’t go through chinese new year without having chicken and fish because we asians live by a lot of rules and superstitions

day 563 – vday decadence

image

it was a moxies kind of night. it was also a night i bandwagoned the whole eating protocol and got myself some baby bbq ribs. i figured pairing it with some kale would convince myself it contains a portion of healthy choices, that was until we received a free white chocolate ice cream brownie. been sort of letting it slip today after i was bummed out from some news regarding my competition obligations and left so bogged down i even skipped gym

day 265 – hoops at pub night

image

catching a raptors playoff win while enjoying good eats and sharing quality moments with fellow hamberite. can’t stop staring at the amazingly ginormous original joe’s fish and chips. we obviously ordered way too much food for just the two of us and the worst is we both failed to take the leftover packed food on our way out. at least the raptors series all tied up heading to brooklyn
