So I went for a run (at the school gym) yesterday morning after being cooped up all week. Ideally I was supposed to go for a yoga class to give my legs a break. Except my plan to make the 10am class completely went into shambles as I was unable to get myself up that early. So after getting up at noon, I ended up going for a 25-minute run (again at the gym) to make up for my failure.
It was nice. Spring is finally here. I was able to go to the gym in my running capris and a light jacket. I broke into a nice sweat, and was happy that my endurance is getting better and better.
And later in the afternoon I went shopping with my friend for our egg-tart making, movie-watching date.
We got a recipe from another friend for egg-tart, which the said friend had made for us several weeks before and was absolutely divine. But the crust of the tart was a bitch to make so we started our first try today with trepidation. It requires cake flour, bread flour (we used all-purpose instead), LOTS of butter, and plenty of patience. The complete recipe is here if you want to give it a try (it's in Chinese). I also made jalapeño bacon poppers from a Buzzfeed recipe. It was super easy, delicious, and fattening.
So over Julie and Julia, which my friend hadn't seen, we had homemade garlic bread, beef stew, some stir fried veggies, my jalapeño poppers, and egg tart (one per each person since we were stuffed by that point).
So now I'm going to pop a few Prunelax pills (I don't do this on a regular basis, just when I feel that I have gone too far), watch a few episodes of Castle, and go to bed. Will probably go for another run tomorrow. I think I will restrict my yoga plans to once or twice a week from now on. But we'll see how that goes.
