Two weeks have passed since my last blog- I started my new job last Monday and COMPLETELY forgot to post!
Maybe it's for the best- last week I seemed to have GAINED a pound- Tuesday a.m. the scale read 133.0, which was a major bummer, but again, I've been eating out a lot more and trying a lot of new foods here in Hawaii (and not feeling very guilty about it!). Also, Mike and I are getting back into the swing of walking and hiking, and this week we did much better than last.
New loves: PAPAYA! Discovering new beaches and hikes! Yelp (how I'm discovering the island's best... everything)! Hi ling powder (sour plum powder- I've been sprinkling it on fruit)! Shave ice! Body surfing! Furikake- a seasoning that includes nori, sesame seeds, salt and sugar. I sprinkled furikake on a piece of salmon and sauteed it for dinner last night with brown rice and cucumbers- it was so good! I should have taken a picture!
The dislikes aren't even worth mentioning. Things are good here and so beautiful. I've been here three weeks now, but I still can't believe we live here. Next Tuesday I'll be sure to attach some pics and talk more about the health-related aspects of our new life here, but for now... I'm going to finish this Kona Brewing Company Wailua Wheat Beer and go to sleep!
Good night, Sparkles. Love and luck to you this week!!
