Before we went to the movies we met some friends at the Maui Brewing Co. ( yes...the place I hate ) for a drink and ended up ordering food because we were starving ( from all the Frisbee Golf I'm sure....) When will we ever learn?? We shared a pretty boring small Pesto Pizza that was a shocking $25. Good thing I had a nice glass of Fume Blanc to keep my mind off of it.
We totally slept in the morning! 9:30 to be exact. I feel better than yesterday but the Kona Winds ( south winds ) are blowing full force and you can barely see Lanai and Molokai again thanks to the thick suffocating VOG in the air.....yuck! I swear...it was never like this until 2 years ago when that new vent opened by Kilauea ( The Big Island ) It's terrible....I mean you can't really turn off a volcano so what do you do? I feel so bad for everyone on the Big Island because they have to deal with it all the time....not just when the Kona Winds blow.
I started the morning off with a great 40 minute workout on the elliptical machine followed by some weights ( lat pulldown and seated shoulder press ) While I watched my Steelers almost lose again in the 4th quarter...geez guys.....
I then headed home and made myself another Green Juice before heading off to the beach to study.
3 cups organic kale
1/2 local lemon
2 organic Granny Smith apples
So, I have a beach that I go to when the winds are coming from the south. It's facing north and it is normally a windy mess when our typical Trades Winds are blowing. Not today though! :-)
You can barely make out Molokai in the background. This is so strange, normally it's plain as day! Damn VOG!
This is a really good beach for shelling too....
Look what I found in the sand....It almost feels like I'm on holiday too lol!
Well, at least I can pretend....
Time to head home for a late lunch...
Sorry another repeat...
organic lowfat cottage cheese
Kula green leaf lettuce
and some Louisiana Crystal Hot Sauce!
Dinner was easy....just some spiced up ( added hot pepper flakes, balsamic vinegar, crushed garlic and evoo ) "Classico" Pasta sauce, Pecorino and organic pasta....
Remember back on December 20th I mentioned I gained a few pesky lbs???
Well, I decided to jump back on the scale this morning and guess what...all gone. All I did was resume back to a normal ( non holiday eating habits ). I cut out blue cheese dressing, Christmas cookies and candy, loads of sticky white rice and shoyu from my new job's cafeteria and the extra glasses of wine I was drinking....easy peasy :-)
