day 949 – so green

image

dinner full of green food felt like the way to turn the corner and slowly leave that nasty cold behind. getting back to eating more greens is the goal instead of grabbing what’s most available. never thought i would ever say i missed my veggies, but i really do after a stretch of not so health conscious food. time to get healthy and stay healthy, the big events are fast approaching

day 677 – last of it

hamberite catching up time with more shaved ice at icepik which was fitting for a scorching hot sunday afternoon. call me old school, i stuck with green tea flavour just like last time despite hundreds of other possible combination. i promised myself this is the last of the dessert pigging out for a while because there’s been too much of it lately and not doing me any good

resolution series: [eleven] eat clean

there’s a saying “you are what you eat” and i couldn’t agree more. understanding the value of eating well goes a long way to staying healthy. i have always been told you must eat regularly and not skip meals so not to ruin your body clock. too late it’s already ruined and that’s exactly why i have chronic stomach issues. a lot of the times it can’t be helped because when i get busy cramming for deadlines, i lose track of time and forget to eat my meals. this is one of the things i have put emphasis on in trying to correct and make better. i can’t deny i am a picky eater and there are many things i choose not to eat simply because i don’t like it. but there’s also i lot of things i choose not to eat because my digestive system just doesn’t want to accept it. it has taken me a long time to realize my body actually doesn’t like starch all that much and that my digestive system is very sensitive to oily foods. simply reducing starch has made a positive impact to my well being, and the bonus is my stomach has thrown less tantrums. i still have a lot of inexplainable cravings at the most random times but i am trying hard to reduce and control that department. not saying i cannot have them, but just need to keep a close tab on it and only use it sparringly. staying hydrated still troubles me since i can never consume enough water to maintain what people call hydrated, and no one will believe me when i say my body operates just fine with less water. my conclusion is: eat like shit, feel like shit

day 545 – morning meal

image

i was up very late last night doing a lot of thinking, that’s usually when my mind wanders far off, it doesn’t feel like i slept much at all, but no matter what life must go on. as usual, starting my day off with some multi grain cheerios. it all sounds healthy until you realize how much sugar is actually in the cereal. but oh well, still an optimal choice because it is quick and easy

day 538 – the last meal

image

second dineout vancouver stop at carderos with some fellow hamberites. nice walk along the seawall although it was a cold one, maybe that’s why my throat is hurting. being guilt tripped after dining out past month, i told myself each time that it was the last; but after yesterday, i swear it would be the last exquisite dining out for a while and even limiting any kind of eating out as much as i can. that’s enough pampering myself with good yet expensive food

day 469 – freshii

image

i wasn’t able to wake up early enough to prepare my own lunch so it gave me opportunity to finally have my freshii salad bowl for lunch. chose the bistro salad, a simple turkey breast with tomato and avocado salad that i could probably make myself but somehow it tasted better. i should wake up earlier tomorrow to prepare a lunch so i can avoid spending eight dollars on a salad like such

day 462 – today’s lunch

image

keeping a close tab on my meals and trying to eat clean regularly and stick with the suggested nutritional proportions. lunch composed of a mix of bean sprouts, veggies and pork. it’s going to take some time to adjust to the many technical details of proportions and have to be really on top of it. hope i can keep going at this rate and stay disciplined to make some necessary changes
