Saturday – A PV Day
No scale to weigh myself as I am in Hong Kong on a border run. I arrived in the morning and checked in by noon.. Put my walking shoes on and hit the pavement! Hong Kong is a lot like San Francisco, very hilly!
After a good two hour walk up towards the peak I made my way to Ryan’s Chicago Steakhouse. This would be where my first cheat in NINE weeks on this diet happened. Not earth shattering mind you, but a cheat, nevertheless. I ordered their burger (bun less of course) with blue cheese AND bacon… AMERICAN BACON, like what I make for breakfast when I’m in America… OMG, it was so yummy 🙂 I refuse to look up the nutrition facts on blue cheese, I don’t want to know. I then walked an hour back to the hotel and hung out online for a bit.
Dinner was at a different mall where the H & M store is. I am so stoked! I bought 2 shirts and a sweater and they are all size ‘L’ !! There was no choice on what to try on because XL does not exist here… LOL. I reluctantly took them in the dressing room and was shocked that they fit… I let out a woo HOOso loud that it brought the try-on girl down to make sure I was OK 🙂
To reward myself I went to get shashimi. I had 2 big pieces of tuna with wasabi and soy sauce, and was full.
I then caught a taxi back to the hotel and did the 15 min. climb up the big hill behind the hotel and 15 mins. Back down. So, I’m hoping that 3.5 hours of hiking up hills makes up for the sin of the cheat. No regrets!
This morning I had 3 pieces of meat for breakfast, that was the only non-carb in the hotel buffet 😦
Back upstairs for some online time and a nice long Skype chat 😉
Lunch back at Ryan’s and same same as yesterday’s lunch 😀 So 2 cheats in a row, I feel happy that I allowed myself this treat! I walked there after a 45 min. hike (so 1.5 hours total) and now I’m sitting in a Starbucks having a venti latte with skim milk and Splenda writing my blog.
It’s been a FABULOUS weekend… I am happy and life is good 🙂
