OMG, So Yummy

Guess what. Last night, I cooked up such a good dinner! It’s kind of sad how proud I was of myself.

Anywho, here’s what I made:

Baked (roasted?) potatoes (with garlic, Italian seasoning, onion powder, olive oil):

Some sauteed carrots, onions, and bell peppers:

And my mama’s marinated chicken which I cooked up on the pan, too:

Yeah. All that with some S&P and Sriracha sauce and you have one super-filling meal. Actually, I had a bunch leftover for another meal…

Cut to this morning.

I had a light breakfast and then I chilled, checked emails, then did a quick upper body workout.

Building up to first push-up PHASE 2That’s right. I actually did phase 1.5 on Sunday (doing some with chin-up grip and some with pull-up grip). Phase two is lowering down, all with pull-up grip (palms away from you).

I am pleased to say that I am WAY more capable of this stuff than when I started two weeks ago. That first time left me wrecked. Now, I can actually lower down slowly instead of just dropping down to the ground.

PROGRESS!!

After 5 sets of 8 reps, I did 4 sets of 15 push-ups with the pull-up bar. Again, I think this makes it easier, which I loves. I can’t believe I’m doing them all on my feet though :)

Finished it all off with about 8 minutes of shoulder/arm burnouts. Holy crap, it BURNED.

Now here was my post-workout meal:

Bell pepper with an egg in it and cheese on top (that’s where all the protein is). Leftover potatoes, carrots, and some fried up spaghetti squash with Sriracha sauce.

Now it’s sitting like a brick in my stomach. SO FILLING, I tell ya!

______________

I’ll be visiting SF MoMA today! Then I gotta work on some papers, and I MIGHT go for a short run (hill repeats… perhaps).

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  1. That looks delicious! I just found your blog and i must say, your story is very similar to mine.. I was curious, have you ever struggled with the sterotype that ALL asians are skinny? I have a huge time trying to get over this…

    • I’ve DEFINITELY struggled with that (all my Asian friends are so petite)! It’s one of the reasons why I chose this blog name… that though I am tall, muscular, and have “thunder thighs” (which has a negative connotation), I have learned that it is actually a blessing. I feel that God has given me the gift of running so that I can love my body for what it can do instead of what it looks like. Also, through the blog, I hope to get the dialogue going. Eating disorders are so secretive and I want to just go out there and finally be vocal about these struggles.
      Thank you soooo much for sharing! I really appreciate it :)

      • I am just like you minus the height part. I did cross country and a lot of sports in school so I am on the muscular side for asians. My Whole family is skinny/muscleless and then there is me… Not fat, but quite muscular.
        You are really good at running especially marathons! .
        I look forwards to more post and I do agree that ED’s are so secretive and quiet.
