I hate doing that, not just the cost, but the nasty plastic bottles. I went to work after and we have a recycling bin in the break room, so at least these will stay out of the environment.See this image largerActive recovery day, so took Makua to his happy place for a walk.

Me: Realizing I should have vacuumed the floor before starting my core workout. Dog hair is my favorite accessory, I wear it with EVERYTHING!🤪See this image largerThis stuff is a lifesaver. Growing up in Hawaii, rice is THE staple. I HAVE to have it with certain foods (beef/curry stew and chili). This is so much healthier than the white rice I grew up with and a fast fix if I don’t have pre-cooked brown rice or quinoa portions in the freezer.See this image largerWhen you haven’t synced your Fitbit since waking, then leave it at work after you take it off to wash your dishes.

(alarm went off at 11 am). I don't usually have any problems falling asleep, but when I do, I toss and turn for hours.(1 comments)See this image largerNot feeling well, caught my Mom’s cold. People from Hawaii will understand lemon with li hing mui seeds. Better than anything else for a cough and scratchy throat.See this image largerFirst trip back to the gym in about a week.

Day shift!See this image largerI shared this on instagram yesterday. There was a time when I wouldn’t have gone anywhere near the squat racks or deadlift area. I was too unsure of myself and of my capabilities. Yesterday was the last day of an 8 week functional fitness program and I decided to really push myself. 90 lbs on the deadlift!! I am starting the program over and I hope to 1. Be lighter at the end and 2. Deadlift at least 120 by the time I finish.See this image largerIn the middle if a major bathroom reno.

My body is letting me know, a little stiff and sore at work tonight.See this image largerIt’s been a little over a month since I started using the cpap. I am still struggling to get 7 hours of sleep regularly, but I have definitely noticed I am getting better quality sleep. Less restless and awake periods according to my Fitbit, and I feel rested most of the time.See this image largerMy reluctant walking buddy is really hauling tail! 😄 I would be happy with a nice stroll, but he’s like “Okay, if I gotta walk, then let’s MOVE!”See this image largerOne of the reasons I like to take Makua walking in Princess Kahanu Estates is the beautiful landscaping in so many of the yards.See this image largerAnother pretty afternoon walk with Makua.See this image largerWith my crazy work schedule, I still haven't finished painting our renovated bathroom. I did manage to finish priming all the sheet rock, yesterday. Since heavy cleaning counts, thought to check if painting does.

Didn’t get it done tonight, so that is the safest place for them until I put in the new louvres.See this image largerDaily gratitude for August 22; I am grateful for the free exercise app from my gym.
