After 11 hours of flying, I arrived safely in Kona. I wish I could have taken pictures while landing on the big island! The airport is located on an old lava field, looking like the surface of the moon.
On the flight, I brought along my own snacks of course. I picked up this bar at Trader Joe’s. It tasted great and was sweetened with stevia and only 220 calories!
US Airways did not have internet or a plug for computer so I spent the majority of my time, brainstorming video ideas, reading and deleting pictures from my iPhone.
When we arrived, we went to dinner at Hugo’s on the Rocks. It was gorgeous! I tried the poke which everyone recommended before I left. The view was unbeatable and at 7 pm there was a hula show the demonstrated the history and how to. I filmed a lot of it!
This morning I went for a 6 mile interval run. Afterwards, I finished with 3 90 second planks, and 3 60 seconds side planks. I baked a batch of my high protein blueberry muffins which made for a perfect recovery meal.
I’m off to the expo to check it with media credentials. Life is good!
Nice! The pics look beautiful. Enjoy 🙂
Wow, that’s such a wonderful opportunity, how beautiful..
Completely off topic, but I wanted to get an opinion from you, please. There is a post (probably propaganda) floating around FB showing Zumba burns 850 calories per hour. I realize that burn is dependent on many factors (weight, age, effort, etc) however, this number seems completely unrealistic to me -- especially since the same post compares it to running (560), walking (245), jogging (490). I just think there is really no way it could be that high. So have you ever used your calorie burn monitor in a Zumba or comparable class, if so were your numbers that high?
Looks like an amazing trip so far! Keep the pics, tweets and posts coming, I think I speak for a lot of us when I say we are living vicariously through you on this trip!
The whole experience looks beyond amazing Sarah! I am so thrilled for you! 🙂
Do you happen to remember if the promax bars are gelitn free? Thanks for sharing 🙂
Yes! I believe they are. Not 100% but pretty sure and thank you! 🙂
Thanks for your reply. 🙂
