The last workout before going home on Monday. Had 2 dog walkers slow me down for about 5 minutes. Most of the workout went well. I did feel like I was working harder than usual. Felt a great sense of accomplishment from transitioning in diet based on limited carbs, intermittent fasting and getting 8 hours of sleep. I feel totally energized and ready to go home. Thank you Lord for all your blessings.

Back in Hawaii

On Thursday…Dec 22…picked up by Michael Raymer of orangepeel Transportation. Luckily he got me to the airport at 3;45AM. The place was packed. Checked in outside…got to the gate and by the time I landed in ATL I was tired. Didn’t get too much rest the entire week due to nervous anxiety on leaving Trixie behind for 3 weeks. I preordered the Asian meal which wasn’t too bad…a curry dish, nice sandwich…vegetarian. Edwina picks me up around 4PM. Flight was over 9 hours long. I felt a slight chill. Old age and the fat my immune system was compromised I came down with a pretty petty cold that put me out so bad I missed Christmas Mass. The above workout probably worsened my immune system even more. I started to feel much better after a week. Got a new membership at UFC…thank you Silver Sneakers. Bought a nice aloha shirt at Kahala Store…Matsumoto shave ice…and visit to 3 tables. By New Years eve, went to Wailua market. Got a bunch of fruits that I had no clue what they were. Had a nice gathering eating fresh fruit, marinated steaks.
Buying fresh fruits for Eve party.

Did this Loop dedicated to Foxie….who passed last year. I call it Foxie Loop #1. The Loop includes a pretty tough Hill at the end. Foxie got me into shape for me to accomplish this. I miss you Foxie.

Foxie Loop #1

January 2, 2023

Went into town for lunch at the busiest Chinese restaurant…Jade Dynasty in Ala Moana. Got there at 1130AM…and a 50 minute wait. Food is excellent. Edwina had the duck and custard. I ordered the salted fish fried rice and salted pork chop.

Tuesday…Jan 3…went to see the big waves at three tables. Had lunch at Sunnyside. Bought stuff at Cosctco which earned this comment….NUTS!!! The place was jammed already by opening at 10AM.

Back in Hawaii

After a long trip from the frigid East, I felt very sluggish. The lack of sleep over the past prior days didn’t help. I was tired of travel and of age. I surprisingly did this workout.

This was the peleton portion that upped my pace nicely.

The next day I was knocked out with a severe cold that prevented me from attending Christmas services.


I don’t know if my watch is off or not…but….I had my fastest walk this morning. It was a rather cold and breezy morning. Trixie kept pulling off course. Dang that dog is strong!!! 

I decided to do Olivia’s peleton 20 minute walk into the middle of the workout.

When I got home, was very surprised of my time for the entire workout. 

Started to intermittent fast….more plant based diet….meat/fish at a minimum…and low carbs.

Here’s the proof.  Life is good. Thank you Lord.
