Hawaii 2015

Saturday, January 24, 2015

We had planned a trip to take my Dad bucket Pearl Harbor which was something he wanted to do - we figured we would use the money from the sale of our houses to do this. Long story short - God changed everything - houses not sold, trip to Hawaii still went out with some money from our retirement. Anyhow it was ALL God's plan. Dad was honored at Pearl Harbor when we arrived and no one knew we were coming but God! Seems there was a special ceremony the day we arrived for Military vets and families. He was treated as a VIP all over the island because he made the NEWS!
Eating wise it was OK - exercise wise we walked over 3 to 4 miles a day and I swam just about every day - better yet my swimming buddies were Honus "sea turtles" that swam along the reef outside the hotel. Oh and we renewed our wedding vows too
Great trip Great time - going to hold off on weighing myself till the day next week I see my doctor - no matter what I always get back into the Healthy eating lifestyle immediately - never mind ALL the exercise I got too
