first day in paradise...

Friday, January 11, 2013

i mean molokai:-) it was DH's birthday but unfortunately the cold that has been plaguing him worsened, though not until we had gone for a 5 mile walk that included beach walking. he started on antibiotics (he now has sinusitis and other ucky stuff), and felt better - well enough that we were able to complete the errands that were necessary. we stopped for a restaurant meal and i ordered a salad as my side dish with the garden burger, and picked at a few of his fries, but when he suggested we get more fries, i agreed - and ahem... oh well. just a reminder that i should not *keep* doing this while we are here since that is definitely a danger for me (and has been in the past).

i miss weighing in on the scale more than i miss tracking (though if the scale shows that i'm er.. off track, i will definitely be tracking again). found our scale but it is out of battery - that will be a top priority.

i'm letting the fitbit do the tracking and it looks like it will be easy to hit 15,000 steps here - just getting to the beach and back. and pelle the BC is here too, though we need to get out early to beat the heat for him. no running yet because my cold is not quite gone, but it will come...

    Do I understand that you'll be there for 3 months? How lucky can you get! Hope DH continues to feel better.

  I'm such a dog person that my takeaway from this blog is " Oh that's so wonderful to be in Paradise with your dog":)

    Hope you and your husband get over those colds soon. Enjoy your walks on Molokai. I would want a scale for the next 3 months also!
