Hong Kong report card

Sunday, May 26, 2013

Well I'm sitting here in Hong Kong airport ready to come home. I've just had a skinny latte from Starbucks and I'm contemplating the last six days. If I were to rate my success here in HK in terms of a school report card I think I would give myself about 75%. Here is why:

Day 1: The day that we left/arrived I ate very well. I tracked that full day and while I did go over my daily limit for losing weight I stayed within my limit for maintaining. I also used this day as a rest day, which was part of my plan from the start.

Day 2: I worked out the next morning as planned and again tracked and ate ok for being on holiday. I was a little over my "maintain" calorie amount but by about 200 cals.

DAY 3: The next day I worked out again and the spent the day running around Disneyland in the hottest weather I'd seen in ages. I had an ice cream with one scoop and some popcorn later which was the bad thing during the day. We then went to Macau and had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. I had two potato skins and a salad. I didn't track this day as by the time we took the ferry back to HK it was nearly midnight....we didn't get to bed until 1am.

Day 4: I did not get to the gym as planned due to my late arrival in the night before. I was a bit disappointed in myself. I ate ok....nothing super awful but I did have some little treats here and there. I had a couple of beers at our evening function and some ice cream and pasta but I danced like a maniac for at least an hour and when my friends and I dance we are going so hard I sweat more than at a workout class. Anyway I went back to the hotel and had some Pringles from minibar. Bad news.

Day 5: no gym as our conference started at 8:30 but I tried to eat well today. No tracking due to no time (our conference was pretty much all day) but again I didn't go too nuts. I could have but didn't.

So to sum up...I worked out 2 of the 3 days I planned to if you don't count the dancing. I had salad for every lunch/dinner we went out for even at the Outback Steakhouse and Hard Rock Cafe. I didn't have any alochol until the "party" night. I tracked for about half of the trip.

I wasn't perfect but I did try. I hope that I haven't put on weight but I am prepared for the worst. I am proud of what I did achieve as there is no way I would have been that diligent in the past.

And for the first time ever I am excited to get home and start my daily routine all over again!!!!! 72kg here we come. No next time ill get at least a 90%!

Always learning and trying to be better...

    Thanks for the support guys! I'm not super happy with the scale...did a sneaky weigh-in at the end of my day ... Worst time ever... And not happy with the results. Looking forward to a productive few days and hoping to maintain at the least!!! I do know that the weigh-in tonight was kind of bs though so not getting too caught up!

    Sounds to me like you have done pretty darn well. The key thing is that you are still essentially sticking to it, instead of totally letting it go by the wayside which is my habit. I was really happy to get the notice that you were back on here, as I'm back on and enjoyed our interactions a few years ago. Enjoy the rest of your trip to HK, and you WILL make 72kg!!

    It's hard to be our best when traveling. just back from Honduras where I had no control over what was served, and very little veggies. I stayed at Hong Kong Disney world a couple of years ago with my then teenage son, not quite the same as here. It was weird going to Disney in Asia. Sounds like you had a great trip.
