Dukan – Day 233 – Easter

Sunday was a PP day :)

Daily weight loss: 0.2 lb/0.2 kg
Total weight loss: 85.8 lb/39.01 kg

Back to my normal weight loss :) Still plugging along. I had the morning off for church and had a great time. A few things to note… people think that China is an atheistic country, when in fact, most people here are religious. The largest percentage being Buddhist. It is estimated that there are over 50 million Christians in China. And I have to say the church was rockin’ Easter Sunday morning. And yes, it’s a REAL church with a big ole cross on the top of it… just across the street from the Buddhist temple :)

The music was gospel with a bit of reggae and blues... totally awesome!!!

The really awesome thing about attending church outside of my home country is the diversity of the fellow church goers… you don’t see that so much in churches in the U.S…. it was the same in Al Ain… people from all over the world in church with you… it makes it so much more fun!

The kids group... rockin' the house at Easter services.

I then walked 2 miles to the bus stop for Bus 900 to take the 1 hour and 18 minute ride to work. Wasn’t too bad… I love people watching.

I then had another marketing event to live through smile through :) Steve, Romina and I got up and sang “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”… the crowd loved it and the kids sang it in Mandarin… pretty cool.

I then went home and got another run in… I’m really trying HARD not to overdo it, but I love it so much! I can’t explain it better than that… took my time, worked on pacing, since I am now running for longer periods without stopping… I think I’m doing pretty well…

Breakfast: One baby bell low fat cheese roundy thingy, 2 tea eggs
Lunch: 1 tea egg, tin of tuna
Afternoon snack: 1 tea egg
Dinner: Stir fry pork loin with onions and garlic cloves… yum

Exercise:
1 mile walk to and from work
2 mile walk to the bus stop
2.98 mile/4.79 kms Run

I hope everyone had a nice Easter Sunday or Passover weekend!

Ciao!

Parting shot… PJ’s AND high heels in the tea egg line this morning!

PJ's and High heels at 651 a.m.

  1. Congrats on being back to your top form :) You are doing awesome!! True weight here you come…… I can only imagine how fantastic you must be feeling. You deserve it!!!!

    Love the PJ’s/heels – at least “she” (I hope its a she!) is trying to be a little stylish, the heels do add a touch of class!!!!! xoxo

    • LOL, yes, it was a she :) hehehe

      I feel fab for sure! TW is very close, but I’m going 10 pounds below that.

      I’m in guangzhou this week ,major western grocery 2 blocks away, I’m delighted that it won’t be too tough staying on the diet :)

      I’m staying in a gorgeous suite in the hospital… Love it! Will blog all about it in the morning.

  2. I laughed out loud at this: “One baby bell low fat cheese roundy thingy” — ha ha ha!

    What a fun Easter service :). One of my favorite childhood memories is how our Youth Group leader took us kids to visit other congregations – we attended different (mostly Christian) worship styles and she broadened our horizons so much.

    I’m hovering at 9.6lbs lost = 3 weeks today … and traveling to Denver tomorrow. I’m determined to get in my walks and do my best to eat by the plan. Thank you for the inspiration :)

    • You are welcome… Not too hard to stick to it. Beef jerky if you’re in a pinch, ask for no bread, pasta, potatoes with your meals… Tell people you’re allergic to wheat… Seems to work for me :D
      Well done on the 9.6, you’re on the way!,,
      Safe travels xoxo

  3. On the PJ’s and high heels: One of these days I’m going to take pics of the outfits my girls where to class. I swear they get dressed in the dark.

  4. What fun to visit a church in China! We had a rocking good time celebrating here!! Great job on your run…feeling discouraged here! Fell off my bike…wrist took most of it, but on my run this morning, I just felt old….

    • I buy them some days (vendor on the street outside my building) and sometimes I make them… Recipe on Day 142 :)
      That was the first time I’ve been to church here in China. It’s an over 1 hour taxi ride to get there. I plan on going again… It was fun!

    • Thank you so much :) I need to spend time today working on those awards and getting them up! Damn job and all the traveling… LOL
      You totally deserved the award… The way you took control of your blood sugars is amazing, I’ve shared your blog with everyone I know with diabetes!
