I have so many pictures to share with you guys but I think I want to break them up into a couple different posts by location. So for today I will share some random pics from the past week or so:
|what happens when you feed kids dragonfruit! haha|
|early morning skype with the family|
|almost died when I saw the sign|
|Cheering my parents on for the Chicago marathon|
Another thing I was kind of having a hard time with. I know from previous posts you guys have seen how much I love supporting my family in their runs and doing them together. For the last 3 years I've gotten up at 5:30/6am so I can head downtown and show my support when my parents run the Chicago Marathon. I had to make a plan for the family so they could make it around the city without me. I was happy to do it but so sad because I wish I could have been there.
Yikes...It sounds like I am whining today but really just being honest. I get an amazing experience living abroad but not without sacrifice.
Ooh and a little update on the 90 day challenge front. It is VERY hard to keep a good meal plan when you are visiting a place that has some of your fave western foods. I tried my best to stay on track and I walked A TON so I hoping I made up for the slip ups I had. Its definitely much easier being back at my apartment where I can cook my meals and its very hard to find western food close enough. I couldnt have been more excited to find some goodies at the International market in HK. I know they weren't all good for me but I believe in moderation and not denying myself everything.
Thanks for bearing with me today! I promise to get some pics up from my holiday week! Can't wait to see all your Monday posts!
