Would that be the sun poking it’s head through the trees?
Today it has finally started to warm up and everyone in Daegu seems to be enjoying the spring-time weather. I feel bad sitting inside on my laptop right now and am going to force myself to go for a walk soon.
This week was pretty good in terms of my new eating goals. I concentrated on adding the right foods into my day and, while I didn’t hit the amount of protein that I should have eaten, I consumed much more then previous weeks. Once I stopped filling up on foods like breads and rice that don’t really have much nutritional value I found myself feeling less gross and bloated and more ready to eat protein goodness snacks like almonds. I do think that I need to buy some protein powder however, guess that means I will have to order some more stuff of iHerb.com… how disappointing…not.
The day started healthy.
A big bowl of strawberries, oats and almond butter. While the almond butter is a bit sweet, I am seeing this as a good thing as it means I can’t eat too much of it.
After breakfast I made myself hop on a bus and check out the downtown area, I have been here a month but haven’t really explored Daegu. After getting really distracted by a cosmetics shop (Korean cosmetics are just amazing, they have everything under the sun and it is much cheaper then back home), I walked around and was heading back when I saw a sign for a park. It was only 100m away so I thought I may as well see what was up, turned out there is a kick-ass park in the middle of the city. It is centered around a government building from 1801 that the city decided to turn into a focal point for a park when the offices moved.
I walked around for a bit then headed home to do some yoga, drink coffee (do these things contradict one another, if so I do not care) and make lunch.
I made the mother of all salads with lettuce, roasted sweet potato and homemade spinach chips with nutritional yeast. Trying to eat this was hilarious. On the side I had a grainy roll that a bakery near us sells and is crazy addictive; as well as some cut up pear with almond butter. Hmmm maybe I don’t dislike that almond butter as much as I thought…
I’m going to try and enjoy the sun, whats the bet it will be gone by tomorrow. Have a good Saturday 😀
