What I’ve Been Up ToPosted: July 7, 2011
Yesterday I went to Shenzhen, China for the day and didn’t get home until late and was too tired to write up a post.
I actually haven’t been spending much time at home partly because the space is just so small and also because once I’m out it’s just easier to stay out the rest of the day since I’m walking and it’s not always convenient to just go all the way home.
Heres what I’ve been up to lately:
Figuring out how to use an unfamiliar blender
Making almond milk ice cubes
Drinking chocolate protein shakes
Forgetting that I have no car and that everything I buy here has to be carried home
(Note to self: do NOT buy huge bottles of water, drinks, shampoo/conditioner, and toilet paper all at once. It starts getsreally heavy halfway home.)
Finding out that one of my favorite soy drinks comes in multiple flavors
Coconut soy milk
Melon, red bean, chocolate, and dark chocolate soy milk
Eating TONS of food
I went to a buffet today and ate more than my fair share of food. I only managed to take a picture of my first and last two plates. Everything I ate in between I forgot to photograph because I was too busy eating…
dragon fruit, watermelon, pineapple, and cheese
tuna, salmon, abalone, and crab sashimi
spinach noodle soup
All the dessert looked too good to pass up so I decided to try it all(!). I had little slivers of strawberry mousse cheesecake, vanilla bread pudding, tiramisu, black sesame and banana mousse, pear tart, and gluten free almond and orange cake, plus some pineapple, watermelon, and dragon fruit.
Everything here is delicious, but I’m beginning to miss my usual eats. Particularly oats and waffles.
Drinking my weight in milk tea
Trying new workouts
Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30
After I saw how much Kalli liked Jillian Michael’s DVD’s I thought I’d give fitness DVD’s a go. I tried it for the first time two days ago and I’m loving it! I love how she keeps the heart rate up and gets through the workout quickly, but efficiently.
The New Rules of Lifting for Women
I’ve heard many good things about this book and I also really enjoyed reading all of Amanda’s thoughts on the book so I bought it before I came to Hong Kong and started reading it yesterday. I got through the majority of the book and started stage 1 of the workout plan this morning. Loving it 🙂
Tonight will be spent packing because I’m taking a mini trip to a beachy place. My next post will be from paradise – at least that’s what I hope it’ll be! I’ll let ya know 🙂
Have a fabulous Thursday!
