Friday Five: Kicking Off Summer

It turns out that living out of my suitcase for nearly a month took it's toll on me. As much as I wanted to jump right back into my normal routine of fitness and blogging when we got back to Hong Kong, my brain just wasn't ready.

Has it really been a month since my last blog post???

Today it finally felt like it was time to catch up and write a Friday Five post about what's been going on around here.

1. We were blessed with some incredibly nice weather when we got back from the states and I did some swimming and walking.

2. I researched a lot of different juices until I found a favorite ---> Happy Apple <3

3. mrC and I got dressed up and went to our first Chinese wedding celebration in Macau. If you think their celebrations are over-the-top, you are right! It was a lot of fun.

4. And then little C arrived for a kick off the summer two week visit ---> just as Hong Kong was having record-setting hot weather.

We went to Stanley Beach to show her one of Hong Kong's most popular sports and cheer on the AWA Dragon Boat team.

We got nice and sweaty hiking at Cape D'Aguilar and then cooled off with a swim at Shek O Beach.

She and I got to spend the day on a junk boat cruising around Hong Kong Island while her dad was working.

5. We played on our SUP boards.

A couple of weeks of living up to my 2018 goals, I felt refreshed and energized. In my next post, I will tell you about the two week fitness challenge I took.

I'm linking up with Lacey and Meranda and Rachel for the Friday Five 2.0!

Did your summer weather kick in early?
Tell me something you have been up to lately!


  1. I saw bits and pieces of your adventures on Insta.....looks like you had a lot of activity to keep you busy! Our summer arrived (literally) overnight about three weeks ago. It's been really hot and humid, but it sure feels much better than the sub-freezing temps we had over that extended winter.

    1. I do love warm weather, but the humidity is what kills my mojo, ha! The weather in the states seems to be having a good time messing with everyone this year...wonder what will happen next??

  2. Traveling can be so exhausted- I don't blame you for needing a break when you go back! Sounds like you have been doing lots of fun stuff lately.

    1. It's always nice when fun and being active can go hand-in-hand...then I don't feel as guilty ;)

  3. I can see where it would take you a while to get back into your normal groove after all that traveling!

    Looks like you had a fun time with Little C. I bet you were happy to have the company for a while. What is the water like there? Do you have to worry about "sea creatures"?

    1. I worry about sea creatures even when I don't have to worry, haha! We do have jellyfish in the spring, but the other sea life (turtles, dolphins, fish and even whale sharks) are things I've never actually seen, only read about. I actually prefer to swim in pools ;)

  4. Wow, summer... nice place.. hope to visit those kind of places too soon..



I love comments!
