Week 3 - Diamond Head
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Well this week I had a pretty decent week. Was going real strong but had nights out on Wednesday and Saturday where I drank a few extra calories. I know I live in an awesome place and it offers a ton of opportunities for healthy living but one of the downsides is it definitely has that party/vacation atmosphere ALL THE TIME. The apartment complex where we live is full of non natives. People who are here for school or work or just recently moved to the island. None of us have family or know a lot of other people here so we tend to hang out and do a lot of stuff together. Two of the things we do quite frequently is eat and go out. So trying to keep calories in line is hard. But lately we have been countering that with a lot of physical activity.
Take This weekend. We were awaken at 8am to join the neighbors for a breakfast buffet oceanside at Duke's. We went but dressed appropriately and went straight to gym after. Also it is a 1.2 mile walk to Duke's and then another 1.2 miles to the gym. We had a really good workout. Came home showered and went back out and walked to the mall and spent 2.5 hours there shopping. I have started trying to watch my carb intake so I have been usually eating carbs for breakfast but try to avoid them for lunch and dinner. But on Saturday I did pretty good only carbs at breakfast were fruit and baked red potatoes and veggies. Had an egg white omelette with green peppers, onions, spinach ham and cheese. 3 slices of bacon the potatoes and fruit so not bad for a buffet. Lunch was prime rib, roast pork and veggies and salad at the food court. dinner was grilled chicken, turkey sausage, beef ribs and veggies I grilled the night before. Who said you can't eat and lose weight :)
Anyways on Sunday we hiked diamond Head for the first time. it was awesome it is a mile and a half hike and very scenic. It was a pretty good workout as we tried to keep a good pace going up. Below are some pics. It was my first time hiking. It was challenging in parts. Especially one of the last staircases they have there. Hopefully the first of many future hikes :)
Anyway here are the numbers for this week. not great but I know on the weekend I probably was over on calories. I don't track on the weekend. I also have to keep the nights out down to have bigger weeks.
