My Week in Photos #12

A sunny break in between the downpour that started the week.

Someone finally slept the whole night in her bed! Unfortunately, she was back to climbing over me and into our bed the next night.

Waiting for my turn at the endocrinologist’s clinic. The doctor said I have to have a lifestyle change because of my borderline diabetes. In other words, time to move my butt and exercise!

Breakfast at Pi to celebrate my father-in-law’s 76th birthday. Anyone notice how often we’re at that restaurant?

I had Eggs Sammy, or eggs benedict with smoked salmon instead of ham. As usual, I preferred what Julio ordered – caramelized spam with kimchi rice.

Just a few more weeks, and it’s Christmas already! I decided to put up our holiday decorations so that the 2 months or so that they’re on display will make it worth the trouble of putting them up.

My Life This Week #4

I really should rename this series to My Life Last Week or something to that effect. I haven’t been posting on Sundays, which is the day I had hoped to post for this series.

Merienda with Bea, my dad and brother at my dad’s favorite merienda spot.

Julio and I started on the Paleo Diet/Slow-Carb Diet. Probably more for my sake than his though. It tastes just as bad as it looks.

This dish was much better, but still tasteless as salt is a no-no. Boo.

Bea’s birthday breakfast – chocolate chip pancakes with whipped cream and bacon. We made that day a cheat day. Yippee!

My Life This Week #2

Another week gone by. Same old, except that I turned 33.

Here’s how last week went:

An attempt at eating healthy.

A birthday gift from my husband – a not-so-subtle way of telling me I need to start exercising?

Lunch with my parents and sister – but honestly, I chose the restaurant for its tomato-cheese fondue and to-die-for coffee pie!

Birthday dinner with Julio. I love sashimi and uni. Except maybe I had a bit too much. Enough to make me not want to look at it again. Or, at least, not until next year.

Merienda with two of my best friends at The Royal Picadilly, our newest go-to restaurant. And cocktails at 3:00 in the afternoon? Why not!

A rainy but lovely Sunday morning spent with the little one at a cafe then a bookstore.
