Day 296 – Aloha!


        I’m having a great time in Oahu. I got settled in and now I’m ready to explore.  As recorded on the Bodybugg  I burned 4165 calories yesterday.  I walked Solomon twice and strolled along the very populated Kalakaua Ave in Waikiki. I was told that the best local fish was served at the Cheese Cake Factory. Go figure?  So I found free parking on the street near the Zoo and hit the road.  The walk was gorgeous, however, it was very hot. I lingered for a while a the beach called the Wall and watched the waves crash. Just beautiful!  By the time I found the restaurant I was soaking wet and dehydrated.  It was nice to sit on the outdoor deck and watch all of the activity.  Everyone was in such a hurry.  Fortunately, I have 27 more days to enjoy any way I see fit.   I’m going to try not to put any pressure on myself during this time.  I’m not going to rush and do rush and do.  I want to find a nice balance between doing amazing things but also relaxing and being OK with my decision to just go for a drive or throw the ball to Solomon or go to a movie or read a book or have a bite of Carb-Free Cheese Cake.  



  1. What a great start to the vacation, Shelli! You’re already getting some good activity in, too!

  2. Sounds heavenly! I really like your balance of doing whatever strikes your fancy, and relaxing.
    I loved seeing the photos. 🙂

  3. Oh–I am thrilled for you. This post is beautiful. Your attitude about how you will spend your time during this vacation is sane and wonderful and will truly make for an enriching, rejuvenating experience.

    If I were to have a month off, I hope I would make the wise choice you have made about how I used that gift.

    It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.


  4. Thanks for the beautiful pics!

    Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
