My Food + Workouts + FREE GIVEAWAY! {Life In Pictures #14} {WIAW #17}

Someone remind me when the last time I posted a #What I Ate Wednesday post was.

Wardah is a curry-making machine. Before she left, I promised to make me something she’s never made before: pork curry.wardah and I

(Wardah’s on the left)


I always joke about how she eats halal things: one time I put a sticky note on an organic apple I left in the fridge for her during exam season. I haven’t seen her in a while and I wanted to surprise her. I wrote,

“Please eat me. I’m Halal.”

Gave her a good laugh, she admitted! She never cooks with pork and I personally love eating pork. She cooks her first pork curry, and I get to eat it. It’s a win-win situation.

(I threw in some 0 calorie noodles and parsley at the very end to bulk it up!)

Here’s what you need for curry:

red onion

Red Onion.

curry ingredients ghee garlic paste

Ghee, Garlic paste.

curry ingredients ghee red onion

Saute the onion with ghee

pork hock curry

Pork hock added to the mixture

And then she added some spices to the mix and water and let it cook for a while. It started to smell so good in the kitchen! I ate this for breakfast/lunch while we watched Sharkshank Redemption.

Sometimes for snack, I’d eat kale chips:

kale chips with walnuts

…with added walnuts! Because, why not?

And some almonds too.


chicken salad

And for my last meal, I had some salad made with MCT oil, some vinegar and egg yolks in the dressing. It was double dee-licious! The other day, my body was actually CRAVING for salad. I’m so glad I got me some, even if the lettuce I bought wasn’t organic.

And there you have it! What I eat on a random day. I don’t ever label my meals because I don’t see the point in them. I’ll eat when I eat, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s time for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Food is ultimately, food at the end of the day.


As for workouts, I run outside when the weather is below 20 degrees Celsius! Sometimes I get lost and have to run all the way home from a foreign place. I have wide feet and I wore a size 7 regular shoe, resulting in this:

foot blister callus

Oh, happy blisters though.

fitbit surge run stats

I rarely ever run longer than 1 hour at a time! I use the fitbit surge.

And I always stick to shades whenever possible because the sun is hot, and I also dislike getting tan (I tan very easily…)


I’ve been doing the Bikini Body Guide and am currently on week 7. I’m doing 3-4 sessions of resistance training and 6 sessions of low intensity steady state cardio per week ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m going to be honest, going into this routine had me scared crapless like myself being scared of burpees followed by tuck jumps(DEATH, I TELL YOU!), but I fully managed it and I feel good, even, doing so.


I’ve definitely slimmed down since last winter and also since last summer with my horrendous trip to China.

And now the giveaway you’ve all been waiting for…

Remember my last Monthly Finds post? Well, the people over at Coconaise were so kind to offer a prize for 1 lucky winner. That winner will receive 2 jars of Coconaise!


So to enter, check out their facebook page, and then leave a comment below answering one of these questions:

What have you guys been eating these days? What food are you absolutely obsessed with at the moment?! (Mine’s curry!)

What workouts do you do this summer?

a linkup with jenn, Amanda, Becky, Meghan, and Heather

  • My feet are PEE-YOO-NEE! For two years they stuck to a size five, but now I’m a six or six in a half! I don’t think my feet are going to grow that much though ๐Ÿ™ anyways, I’ve been really annihilating my coconut milk curries, sweet potatoes, lettuce and tofu! Sometimes I go crazy and eat tons of salmon or turkey, which are my favorite animal proteins!

    • Wow salmon and coconut milk curries are some of my favourite foods–we would totally get along so well.

      Also, there’s a good side to having tiny feet–you can buy from the kids section.

  • Maryann D

    I have been obsessed with anything coconut lately, so I would love to try Coconaise. I also eat a lot of Avocado! My foot is size 6, slim though. I just enjoy walking in the summer.

    I like eating loads of black bean pasta! They’re not low carb like you eat, but they give a ncie purple color and they’re wayyyyyy better than regular white carb pasta.

  • Kath

    Chicken curry is literally my favorite food ever. I love it more than words can sufficiently express. Now I’m going to have to try it with pork. ๐Ÿ˜€ (Like there’s any ‘have to’ with me and curry.)
    Ouch, those blisters! My feet don’t look nearly that bad- I guess I’m lucky. I’m from Arizona, so running currently entails getting up at 4 AM.

  • That’s what I hate about summer! It’s super hot.

  • hehehe, I can’t eat pork curry either, so I’d be giving it to you too if I ever made any! ๐Ÿ˜› Those blisters do not look fun–I hope your foot’s feeling better now!

  • Serena Powell

    I have pretty big feet. I generally wear about an 11 1/2 in women’s and have very wide feet. It’s awful trying to find shoes that fit properly.

  • Mandie Mutchie

    1. Been obsessed with tacos. This is always the case!
    2. 7.5 and yes, but I think it is because I don’t have arches.
    3. Been doing the Beachbody on Demand workouts. Will be doing 21 Day FIx Extreme again soon!

  • That pork curry does sound delicious.

    I’m pretty obsessed with tacos // burritos // nachos. I love all the different combinations I can make!

  • MCTs yo!! My mom just told me to jump on that bandwagon and now you seem to adore it too, so I MUST, I MUST!!

  • Judy Litt

    Right now I am totally obsessed with nori rolls (I made them for lunch the last 3 days). Always chocolate!

    I’m 5’1″ but my feet are big — I wear a size 9 running shoe (and they’re somewhat narrow).

    I run, I swim, I strength train, I’ve been slacking on my yoga lately, tho.

    I’ve never heard of coconaise!

  • Beauty in Christ

    Ouch those blisters look painful. But I’m glad you got to eat some good curry! I love curry!

  • Beauty in Christ

    That coco-naise looks really interesting. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • mylittletablespoon

    Curry is great because it is surprisingly so easy! You could easily see it as a fancy meal but really I can throw a bunch of things together and have it for leftovers all week long. I’ve been loving anything pickled right now… sauerkraut, pickled onions, pickled beets… on everything!

  • Jordan Dunne

    Curry is such a great versatile dish! I love all Indian food! Summer for me is all about raw produce and grilled vegetables though. I’ve been loving bell peppers and grilled romaine lettuce. Thanks for the chance to win some Coconaise!

  • Judith

    i love running outside – getting into the mornings runs to tackle the heat
