Feast Day and Peng Chau Island

My morning workout today focused on lower body strength with some mountain climber sprinting (my modification) at the end.

I followed up with my plank challenge: 5 sets of 20 second holds in reverse table top. Oh my hamstrings could really feel this. 

After a quick shower and some breakfast, I headed to Hong Kong with some girlfriends. 

Peng Chau Island: after getting to Hong Kong, we took the ferry from central pier number 6. It was about a 30 minute ride to the island.

We arrived smack dab in the middle of the island, which is home to only 6000 residents and measures less than one square meter.

There are walkways along the outer edge of the island. The Heritage Trail will lead to several historical sites.

The main drag, Wing On Street, located though the center of island is lined with shops and fresh markets, teahouses and seafood restaurants serving up seafood.

We visited Tin Hau Temple in the center of the island.

We made our way to the main beach, Tung Wan, and discovered that Hong Kong's effort to clean it up is lagging (although we did see three women raking the garbage debris into piles). This spot has so much potential, but I definitely wouldn't recommend taking a swim here.

Off one end of the beach was a great little rest area. We found it to be perfect for having our lunch.

Then, to work off our meal, we made our way over to climb Finger Hill. Known for its panoramic views of the Hong Kong islands and island vistas, the highest point on the island is also in need of some TLC. Most of the view is currently blocked by overgrown trees and shrubs.

What I ate on feast day

Breakfast: scrambled eggs with ham and pb&j rice cake

Lunch: turkey slices, sweet potato chips, apple

Dinner: banana pancakes. yes, all the goodness again!

Dessert: strawberries 

Macros: not a very good feast day. I did not eat all my calories or hit the carbs goal. Hopefully I won't pay for it tomorrow while fasting.

Happy Hump Day!!
