Thursday was a PP Day 🙂
I’m up 200 grams today and I have NO BLOODY IDEA how that can be!
I did the following:
Walked all over the city at a brisk pace = 5.21 miles
I pooped 🙂
I RAN UPHILL and the down = 2.58 miles
I did KYA Ashtanga yoga (KYA is Kick Your Ass, name of the class, and it did!) = 90 minutes
Breakfast- 4 slices oven roasted turkey and a small chunk of low fat (6%) cheese
Lunch – same as above
Dinner – street pork, two pieces of he crispy skin (could not resist) and NOTHING ELSE
Snack – pot of fat free Greek yogurt with 2 T bran and a Splenda
Drank- 1 coffee and 3.5 liters of water
I’m a bit disappointed…. Which is out of character for me 😦 That’s a net gain of 300 grams for 2 days.
I had a really good day though and a massage in the middle of all the exercise, and the best news is that I’m still able to move this morning! I was a bit worried after the yoga.
Here’s some pics if my day!
My running route uphill!!!
Only you would take a picture in the middle of a massage….
LOL, gotta document my life. Even the massages 🙂
Love the pics! Oh, by the way… added the “follow by email” link, just for you! Have a great day!
Yay! Cuz I miss your posts 🙂
Hi, fab photos! Glad u had a massage, not sure how you managed to take a photo during it – I was nearly asleep during mine!
I’m sure your weight will settle on your return home, i dont know if this effects you but when I fly I always retain fluid which takes a few days to go. Your yoga sounds hardcore, I’m very impressed you could move the next morning, your fitness sounds fantastic! Enjoy the rest of your time in Hong Kong:) x
Thanks, Meg 🙂 I was pretty shocked when I was able to walk this morning, too! Not doing too bad, some muscle soreness, but way less than I thought I’d have!
Totally agree with Meg about little gains, probably just the flying, you’ll be whooshing away when you get home. Sounds like you’re having some great R&R. Well deserved! xoxo
Had a great couple of days away… Much needed… Living in China can be challenging 🙂
I always ache two days after doing exercise….maybe the street pork was really cake with pork round the outside.lol. You’ve done so amazingly so far, hardly any gain days. Maybe its muscle?:)
Damn street pork vendor… Knew I couldn’t trust him, LOL,
Up, down, all around but … I have to think travel/not your normal routine/water, and maybe salt in the street food??
I admire your tenacity 🙂 MJ
MJ, I’m a tenacious among other things, like competitive, funny, awesome 😀 Lol
Thanks so much for your support… I’m hoping my body resumes its normalcy in the next few days… We’ll see what morning weigh in brings… As will you 🙂
Much in agreement with the travel related up. I know for myself any travel, even a non flight travel is disruptive to my routine. You’re SO committed to powering through with your exercise that I’m sure it will stabilize once you get back to China. Glad to hear you treated yourself to a massage Hurray!! Have a great weekend.
Thanks, Anna… up another 100 today, but I’m dealing with it… I’m back in Hangzhou and in control again 😀
I so want to be back in HK when I read your blog! I am also thrilled you enjoyed the music of Tyagaraja..he will be so pleased you got his album 🙂
I listened to it on the plane flying back to Hangzhou…. BEAUTIFUL! I really like “Meaning of Life”.
HK is great, especially when you live in mainland China… kind of like getting a dose of civilization, just a 2 hour flight away 🙂
