No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
haha...cute title eh? we are having an amazing time here in hawaii. i am just in awe of how beautiful it all is here....we have been swimming in lava heated pools and driving to some beautiful waterfalls and along some lovely coastlines. I haven't hiked as much as i'd like to...but it's a bit hard with such different aged kids and a hubby who loves the idea of hiking but not the actual hike. lol! hopefully today we'll head out and hike the crater in the middle of the island. i've read that it's a lovely two miles with a lot to look at.
my eating has been off the charts. it's not been crazy, just much much different than i'm used to. i'm sure i'll see a gain when i get home...but honestly, i'm trying to not let it get to me, which is hard. I go back and forth between the manic have to work out dieters mentality and the it's ok we're only here once mentality. we are on vacation and it's all about balance. daily balance, monthly balance, yearly balance...it's about living life and not letting things pass you by because of a fear of gaining 80 pounds back in two weeks! i'm thinking i'll be ok with a 5 pound gain...i'm sure a lot of it will be just the change in type of food and i'll be able to get it off rather quick. but even if i dont...we've had some amazing local fair, coffee to die for, and some scrumptious guava filled cream puffs~~and not to mention we had TWO birthdays here this last week...so cake and ice cream too!
I've put up a post on my family travel blog with pictures (and more to follow) if you want to go look at them. www.travellingawesomes.com
we are on the east side of the big island...it's raining right now which is just one of the most peaceful sounds on the parts of the roof that are tin :) everyone is sleeping and i've got coffee brewing...it's a great morning! the rain should let up around ten and then we'll be making loco's for breakfast. we went to a local joint and ate them and decided to make some today to fill us up before the big hike. it's basically rice, meat, gravy, and eggs....we chose spam *(a local fave)* it's dieters hell but oh so yummy!
ok, i'm going to hop off here and get dressed and have some coffee. i hope you all are doing well and getting ready for a great week!
