So we left CA on April 30. And it was crazy all April just trying to get ready to leave and move to Hawaii. We are currently on the beautiful island of Kauai. It is known as the Garden Island. We're living at the foothill of a mountain and the island breeze is wonderful. There's so much peace and quiet here. The only time I want to leave is when I want to got the beach, or to church. :p

So my weight has been going up, up, up and then now it's going down again. Just trying to get some control and I've found that God is what works. I'm learning that, I can manage my weight, but the real victory can only come from me surrendering every meal to God and asking Him what and how to go about eating. Each day is an adventure and each day is different. I'm so grateful. Since my WI on the last Saturday of May (26th) I've lost 4.8 lbs. I am not concerned about losing another 4.8 lbs, this week. I just want to be obedient to God's leading. I believe He'll supply the grace for me to continue on this track for life. I'm not on a diet, I still eat the things I want to eat, I just have a GREAT Accountability Partner :)

So, now that I've got internet once again, I'm hoping to be blogging at least once a week.

Oh, and I forgot to mention. I've been exercising. When I got here I took up walking since a gym membership is out of the question. Everything here is waaaaay more expensive than on the mainland. And with the new cheap hiking boots I've been getting lots of blisters. One turned into an infection because I left the bandaid on. Staff infections are common in these parts... so I've been drinking activated charcoal and using a poultice on my toe. The pain has subsided and I hope to get my 3.5 miles in on tomorrow. Initially I was doing 5 days of walking 3.5 and 6 days of JM's Ripped in 30 in the afternoons. So yesterday we assisted in a Health Expo and my toe was THROBBING, so no exercise. Today I got in day 1 of wk 3 on the dvd workout. (it was CRAZY but went by soooo fast). My toe felt fine, so I think tomorrow will be my time to shine.

Church evangelistic meetings begin this Friday so I'll be busy, but I plan to make my workouts happen in spite of...

Thanks for stopping by!!!

We can do this!
