In my previous life, I was not "allowed" to take a vacation, and until recently it just did not make economic sense either. We were lucky enough to get to go to Hawaii, somewhere I had not been for over 30 years. Needless to say, we were both very excited. We spent 7 days on Oahu seeing the sites, hiking, swimming and most of all relaxing. It was an amazing opportunity to just get away from it all. It also was a way to test out the "new me..." As some of you know, I have lost over 100 pounds and I am still going strong. I started a big big boy, around 350 pounds and did it all myself exercising with a combination of P90X and Insanity, along with eating correctly - I am mainly a vegetarian. I am now able to hike and swim and enjoy the outside in ways I never knew imaginable.
Here is a picture of us Hiking 4 miles to see Makapuu Lighthouse Trail - a great hike for anyone who likes a challenge.
Here are some of the views from the top!! Amazing...
One thing I certainly will never forget are the amazing sunsets and running on the beach! Memories we will never forget!
If you can, visit and enjoy it!!
