Lighter Side of Weight Loss: Chapter Fifty-seven

Lighter Side of Weight Loss: Chapter Fifty-seven
Postcard From Maui

Just like Willie Nelson, "I'm on the road again, just can't wait to get on the road again..." Well, that's not quite true. I can't wait to get to the end of my 64 mile virtual walk to Hana. I just completed my 8th mile which means I'm 1/8th of the way to my destination.

The goal I set for myself was 1 mile per day, but inexplicably (read as due to laziness), I am 4 miles behind schedule. I told myself I got behind because I wanted to stop and smell the hibiscuses! Since most of these flowers have no aroma, it took me 4 days to realize this.

I haven't noticed any weight loss yet due to my increased activity, but my blood pressure was excellent yesterday at an appointment with Dr. He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named's office. I guess I should consider that a non scale victory.

While on the road to Hana, I'm practicing singing Pearly Shells in Hawaiian:

Pupu (a 'o 'Ewa) ika nuku (naka naka) ...

Not to brag (even though I am bragging), but I actually can sing this whole song in Hawaiian. When I get to Hana, you're all invited to a luau to help me celebrate. We'll have kailua pork, saimin, fresh pineapple and poi. Treat me to a Blue Hawaii (or 2 or 3) and I just may sing for you. Aloha nui loa. 

Sandra Warholic Seeley - All my life, and half of someone else's, I have lived in a humorous place called Earth. My muse is a tiny menehune from the island of Oahu in Hawaii where I lived for a year. Ernest Hemingway once sat under the exact same coconut tree where I did most of my writing. I'm also a sensitive to criticism Virgo who loves to get paid for writing and speaking funny stuff. Even though my mind is filled with volcanic ash residue and I'm still finding sand in my shorts, I will continue to write until my muse retires or I run out of pretty blue drinks, whichever comes first. Don't be bashful, email the author.
