Speaking of weigh ins - I bounced up to 139 from Hawaii, but considering all the booze, that isn't too bad. A quick recap for ya'll -then it's back to business (and by that, I mean working out, running, eating healthy, being psycho obsessive, etc.). And you will notice in the recap that there was no exercising at all.
We did A LOT of eating. The Captain is not one to skimp out on meals. I wanted to try to extend our budget by having small breakfasts or sharing a light lunch, but NOOOOOOOOO. Basically our main focus for each day became what we were going to eat next. (I seriously think that is an Italian trademark.) Therefore, the majority of our photos are while we are eating.
One day, we drove around the entire Big Island. Of course, I don't remember the exact mileage, because, well I don't really don't bother with those types of details while on vacation. What was cool, was not being on a schedule. We just drove and stopped when we wanted and kept driving when we wanted. I have this crazy
We went to the volcano (big yawn) but I guess it's a must. So we took some pics and got back on the road.
We were on the hunt for cool beaches - that's more our style. We came across a really cool black sand beach. I thought that sand would get you really dirty - but it doesn't. There was a turtle just swimming right in the surf and a creepy goose wondering around like he owned the joint.
Other than eating, our main interest for the trip was true R&R. To me, that means SUN, WATER and COCKTAILS. Of course, the Captain is a brown bear and I'm a white rabbit, but he was the one who actually got sunburned. (He thinks he doesn't really need sunscreen and I re-apply all day long). YES, I know I am wearing the same swimsuit I had on LAST summer. I'm trying to get over it, but I'm not there yet.
It was a fantastic trip. I love traveling with The Captain. This was our first big trip together (I don't count Vegas or Palm Springs as real trips). Yeah for vacations! I really hope he comes with me more often when I travel for work.
But first. Back to the regularly scheduled exercise program. Staring Monday.
