Life for me has been going at 100 miles per hour…or at least that’s what it feels like. So many changes and so many new aspects of life to deal with…again, that’s what it feels like. I’m not at all complaining. Quite the contrary, I believe that’s where life is the most exciting. A clip from the movie Parenthood sums it up best of all:
Reflections Of Paradise
My trip to Hawaii for my birthday was incredibly wonderful…and way too short…LOL. I could have laid in the sun and swam in the ocean everyday for hours. My good friend Dana and I stayed at The Modern Honolulu. It was a beautiful hotel where luxury and guest satisfaction are a huge priority. I would highly recommend a stay there. Here is a short video of the gorgeous property:
I have to say that I felt really great on this trip. Not only was I feeling in top health (knock wood), I was really enjoying how I was looking in my body. It seems nowhere else does your hard work pay off than in a swim suit at the pool or beach! I ate pretty much Paleo the entire time I was on vacation…with a few exceptions…I had an alcoholic beverage now and then AND I enjoyed a few wonderful desserts…after all, it was my birthday. In spite of my indulgences, I kept everything in moderation. I woke up each morning around 5:30am and worked out in the hotel gym for about 90 minutes. It was a great way to start my day.
Most of our time was spent driving around the island and either doing a bit of sight-seeing or discovering cool beaches to plant our towels for an hour or two. The rest of the time we we either at our beach near our hotel or poolside. I may have turned 47, but I did notice that I was getting a few looks from some of the other hotel guest when I was sunning myself…that felt good. I would laugh to myself and say, “Yep, daddy still GOT IT!.” Below are a few pictures from the trip:
