Yay tomorrow is Friday!!!!
Good running advice
Today was treat day at work
I had one and a half krispy kreme donuts
I knew i wanted today’s treat so i went light on breakfast
Did a run on the treadmill tonight! It felt great!
It was just a short run but it was good.
Off to bed for me. Tomorrow os TGIF!!!!! Yay!!!
I spent most of the weekend relaxing and feeling down about my ex who i hung out with Friday night. But i got over it. I spent the weekend on the couch relaxing and bindged on scandal, i am now halfway through season 3.
I opened one of my small coffee samples i bought from Hawaii to try this weekend……freaking delicious!!!!!
I hung some fun motivational quotes in my cubicle to keep motivation all day long
I will continue to add to it.
Tuesday i had a good strength workout and i am a little sore today. This morning i did my swim workout, i am sure as the day goes on i will get more sore hahaha.

How was your week?
Here is super fun series that is a very easy read. You don’t even have to read them in order if you don’t want to. I tend to just grab whatever one sounds like i haven’t read it. I think initially i read the 2nd or 3rd one first.
It is a cute story about a psychic who helps the policed or her friend who is a private eye solve cases. She gets herself in some dangerous situations along the way.
A great beach read or something to read between intense books.
Today was back to the grind for more. It was actually a good day.
Though i am taking the week off of scheduled workouts because i am exhausted from my trip.
But i still want to know what you are up to!
What do your workouts look like this week?
By day 5 i needed to relax so while the girls went out i thoroughly enjoyed having the condo to myself and reading pretty much all day.
I took a break from reading to go for a run on the lovely overcast day with some drizzle coming down.
And yes when i say lovely, i mean lovely. The drizzling helped a bit with the temperature.
Though the humiditing mixed with the drizzling led to me dripping sweat.
A lot of it.
After running i enjoyed a delicious simple lunch
Then i contined to read for the rest of the day until the girls got back and we all went to dinner at Duke’s. I had Ahmazing fish tacos!!!
Today was pretty much all traveling. A cab picked me up at 9:45. It took me an hour to get through security, Hawaii’s airport is packed.
Then i spent 5 hours in a plan then a $50 cab ride later i was sitting on my porch waiting for my roommates dad to let me in with the spare key since i somehow didn’t pack mine.
And now i am finally in my own bed so excited to go to sleep.
How was your weekend?
We got up sort of early again and hit Pearl Harbor.
It was definitely a moving experience
My souvenir was a book 😌
After Pearl Harbor we went to a local coffee farm.
They had soooo many different coffee flavors it was insane!! Yes i bought several samples lol
After coffee was had it was time to see where the coffee came from!
First comes the flour
Then green berries
Then red ‘cherries’
After the coffee farm it was Luau time!!
The dancing and entertainment was great but i have to admit the food was lacking for me. Being as i am not eating meat they had 1 fish option and it left a lot to be desired in my opinion. But it was still a great night!
Now for a dilemma, i feel like we have been going going going since we got here, which i understand and enjoy, you want to get in everything you can while you are here. On the other hand to me part of a vacation is taking some time to relax from our hectic everyday lives amd i feel like we haven’t done that and don’t plan to.
Tomorrow is my last full day in Hawaii and the plan for the girls is hitting up a macadamian nut farm, possibly snorkelling then hanging out at a beach and maybe surfing. Those things could be fun but are nothing that i am dying to do. So do i stay at the condo tomorrow and relax or go out with them?
Part of me feels like if i don’t go out with them i am wasting the day but i also feel like I’m going to be exhausted for work and life when i get back if i don’t take the time to rest. Desicions, decisions.
What would you do?
What does your perfect vacation look like?
We got up early to go hiking.
Lots of pretty views on the way
It was up and up with lot
s of stairs
And an undergro
und bunker tunnel
More insane stairs.
We were proud we made it to the top hahahaha.
My calves were burning!!!
Oh wait more stairs.
amazing views were the reward
The we drove around the island looking for a snorkel spot. We never found one. The surf was high and there were jellyfish and cra
zy currents and broken sewage pumps
Dinner was a local brewery that ended up being mostly appetizers. With frivolity insuing.
Day 2 in Hawaii started off with a 2 mile run.
Then off to the dole pineapple plantation.
It took us an hour to get through this crazy maze. And after that something cold was necessary.
Pineapple whip, it was pretty delicious.
Next we went to the North Shore and walked around.
Then we hit some cute little shops and of course i got coffee! Lol
The day ended with some delicious fresh pineapple on my pizza
And a twilight walk on the beach where we attempted to see turtles but they weren’t there.
I was up before the sun on my way to the airport to fly to Hawaii!!!
It is a 5 hour flight…….i haven’t been on a flight that long in many years. I got bored and restless about halfway through. My garmin told me to move twice while on the flight lol.
The view from our condo!!!! No lie its pretty freaking amazing
And I’m here for free!!!! Does life get better? Lol
We hit the pool for a bit and i did some laps
We went down to the water for the sunset then walked to a sports bar that had Tuesday taco night.
I peeled the breading off my 2nd taco.
Not too shabby for a day of travel, but now i am wiped out. Goodnight all!!!
How was your Tuesday?
