Responsibility 199, what is it?

Responsibility 199 is a belief; I believe that to be healthy and to increase my longevity I need to weigh 199 pounds or less...
Responsibility 199 is a need; I need to reduce my weight, reduce my percentage of body fat, and the elevated threat of disease my present condition presents...
Responsibility 199 is a mission; I recognize that achieving 199 will be a challenge, perhaps the hardest I have ever undertaken...
Responsibility 199 is a commitment; I acknowledge that I must commit to action, commit to change, commit to myself and those I love to achieve this mission, to increase my longevity...
Responsibility 199 is ME.

Day 441 - Fishing, Ice Cream & Landmarks

Friday 7/1
Breakfast: powdered donuts at 5 a.m., we (boys, niece & I)are on our way to go fishing in the bright blue sea. Well it will be bright when the sun wakes up.

The boys, my niece & I went deep sea fishing at dawn. While we were gone the rest of the family went to the Aquarium. Our fishing trip yielded 3 aku (skipjack tuna) & 2 mahi-mahi. Great time for most of us. Cameron & Andrew were seasick within 30 minutes of the 5 hour voyage. Thus they didn't fish, unless you consider chumming the water with last nights pizza fishing.

Lunch: Back at the hotel we ate the Subway sandwiches we took out on the fishing boat.

Quick showers to wash off the sea salt were in order before we hooked up with everyone else.

Snack: G'ma treated everyone to ice cream in the mid-afternoon on what was the hottest day of our trip thus far.

The rest of the afternoon the adults just chilled & chatted by pool while the kids did the same in the room; well a safe bet they chatted less than we did.

Dinner: this evening we dined at the Shore Bird in the hotel. They have a special where you get to grill your meat. So we did just that. I has an 8oz sirloin and salad.

With some daylight left the adults headed out to Aloha Tower Marketplace Mall. A place that apparently was a happening-place when my wife lived here. Today it is far from that; half of the stores are for lease & the other half largely targeted to Japanese tourists.

Not wanting to head back to the hotel just yet we drove through downtown Honolulu. A tour of some of the land mark buildings like the Iolani Palace, the only palace in the U.S.A., King Kamehameha statue, etc..

As we were up before dawn to go fishing it was no surprise we were getting cozy in bed around 9pm.

  1. Sounds like a great day. I love deep sea fishing. I haven't been in a long time though. I hope to go again someday.
