This morning started bright and early at 6am :S I actually thought I was going to wake up much earlier but I think yesterday’s Travelathon must have really worn me out… After waking up and having some coffee and water, I did what else, but my favorite Insanity I know, this is vacation but to be honest, I would not be a pleasant person if I didn’t get a chance to exercise in the mornings… I am not the most pleasant person even after that but I’m much better once I get my sweat on (and a Margarita drank ) After almost dying doing Insanity (because it is so freakin HOT here), I had some delicious breakfast – Strawberry Chobani, ½ a banana, granola and half of a Mango Mac Nut Muffin from Sweet Marie’s. Probably not the most nutritious breakfast but oh well…
After breakfast, it was time for some sitting in the sun and cocktail sipping. It was such a pretty day here in paradise. We sat on our lanai for a bit, got attacked by at least 4 chickens (not joking) and then finally decided to move closer to the pool and actually sit on some lounge chairs.
The sun was starting to get hot and we were starting to get hungry for lunch so we ventured into town to find something. We ended up stopping at Mariachi’s Mexican Grill and that ended up being a very delicious decision! I had a taco salad with Verde sauced pork, beans and guacamole. It was very delicious. A few margaritas may have also been consumed.
Once we were finished with lunch, we headed to have some serious beach time. But first, we stopped at Spouting Horn to take a look at that. It was actually kind of anticlimactic. You couldn’t get that close to it and it was not spouting very high this afternoon but we did catch a couple good pictures.
Then it was time for the beach – Poipu Beach to be exact! This was a pretty nice beach, not the best because the sand was kind of crunchy but it was a beach none the less!
We did a little sun soaking, a little snorkeling and then were tired out so we headed to do a little shopping. We stopped at a Wine store and got some Macadamia Nut wine and then headed to find Papaya’s Natural Food Store. This would be my favorite store ever if I lived here!!!
Dinner tonight was made in our condo and was Steak, Yams, and Kale Chips. I was planning to serve a side salad but apparently they do not have much for lettuce here in Hawaii?? $6 for a gross looking bag… so kale it is! Dinner turned out pretty good and was a bit cheaper than going out to eat and hopefully a wee bit healthier – although it was concluded with half of a Sweet Marie’s Double Mocha Chip Cookie. Tasted like a flat brownie – so good!
A bit of hot tub sitting was done and then since the time change is finally starting to get to me, I am feeling like it really is 1am CST instead of 9pm local time… so time for bed! Tomorrow if our big 10K at the Sugar Mill!
