Sunday was an awesome day… food wise, Dukan wise and exercise wise!
Daily weight: 148 lbs/67.2 kgs
Goal weight: 155 lbs/70.5 kgs
I started my morning early with a half hour of yoga and some housework. Then at 0900 out for a walk/run. It was HOT! Here’s how hot…
So I did this route… which the GPS is off a bit… I walked along the little river, across the bridge and back… so just move my route (in your head) down a bit… LOL
And these are the scenes along my walk…
I could smell a funky smell, like manure, and couldn’t figure out where it was coming from!
As I crossed over the bridge once more, I got wolf whistled at… LOL. That made me feel good and gave me the energy in the melting heat to finish…
Out of the 1:20 I only ran 35 minutes. It was just too darn hot… but it gave me the chance to slow down and enjoy the scenery!
Brekkies: 2 tea eggs… good protein fuel to get started!
Snack when back from walk/run: 2 ounces of an amazingly good aged cheddar that crumbles when you bite it… Mmmmmm and some Jerky… thanks, Suzanne for bringing that!
Dinner at 430 p.m. at Surbhi and Andy’s… OH MY GOD!!! My very favorite Indian dish, Palak Paneer, made just for me! Yummy, authentic Indian food. I am SO grateful for the people I have met on my 4 years of living abroad! I also had a little bit of rice, dal and aloo! Of course this was a celebration meal 😀
When I got home from my 1 hour 20 minute bus ride… standing (now that must have burned some calories) and dancing to my own tune (Rocking out to Rock of Ages soundtrack in the bus… smiling and dancing, sure makes the locals give me a little space) I opened my email to this picture…
And before bed a pot of 2% Greek Yogurt with Splenda and flax seed meal. Yum!
Awesome day all around… How did your weekend go?
Good morning, Sandi! How come the temp is 88 and Real Feel 101 degrees? That seems extreem! 🙂 Well, here in Italy the temperatures are 104 degrees for real right now, and I am dying!!! And my theory is, that this should melt away fat …
What cool GPS or application do you have that tracks your routes/calories etc.?
I am always convinced that with the right technological gadget, I would be more motivated to do more exercise. But only in a comfortable temperature range … 🙂
Hey Moonday… 104??? THAT IS HOT!
I use RunKeeper app to track my runs, walks and hikes.
I agree 100% that the heat should melt the fat away… that’s why I keep hanging out in it 🙂
Thanks! I will check it out!
How interesting… I thought there would be a lot of people about but everywhere seems empty! Lovely and interesting pics!
I think they were all inside because it was so hot! I did see people hanging out under the bridges with the kids playing, but not out on the trails where the sun was beating down 😀
Beautiful,scenic walk. Think I,ll find something similar. More inspiring.
One thing I’ll miss about China is that there are so many lovely places to walk.
You’re a better person than I am. 101 outside? I’m using a treadmill. But then again, look at all I would miss by staying inside. Way to soak it all in .
I had a good swim Sunday, quick bike ride Saturday, but otherwise a crappy sad weekend, but you know that. Glad to read happy.
Glad to give you happy. Maybe you & Dulce will feel better after a good run together! Sending hugs xoxo
Done, and yes, we do feel better. Thanks.
Beautiful pix Sandi. That must be some major incense for the burners to be so big!
It smells so yummy as you pass, Anna. I try to bring a little money each time I walk down there, to purchase incense and then say my prayers. Sometimes there will be hundreds of incense sticks burning! Pretty awesome. People of many religions congregate in that little area by the river 🙂
smells loverly Sandi. I wish I could enjoy a prayer there with everyone.
