rules are made for breaking, right?

LOL!  We've been here in North Carolina for a week, and I've surely gained 5 pounds already.  My mom greeted us with The Barefoot Contessa's Outragious Brownies - and then proceeded to bake sugar cookies with the boys.  Stayed a few days and then went to my MIL's house where we've eaten non-stop.  I counted - we've eaten fried chicken at 4 meals!!  Not to mention bar-b-que, hush puppies, sweet iced tea, good mexican (Hawaii can't make Mexican food) - yadda, yadda.  Ice cream.  Fresh from the garden vegetables - of course, laden with either butter or lard and salt.

I've done SOME walking.  I've got blisters on my toes, so I took a break today - but tomorrow - long walk day.

When we first got here we were freezing!  Didn't even make it to 70.  Luckily, we had left a box of winter clothes here at my folks house - so we had sweaters and sweatshirts.  LOL!  It was colder than we got in our winter in Hawaii, I do believe!  It would have been fine if I had brought a pair of long pants and mom didn't insist we eat outside!

Gotta go - typing on borrowed time here.  I'll try to update before we leave.
