I just wanted to make a quick note that Island of Aloha is now Aloha Geoffrey. This fits in better with my goal of a personal (non-tech) blog. The focus will be similar, but you’ll mostly see recipes, Hawai’i-related topics, and fitness.
That’s all I had for now. Have a wonderful week!
I don’t really consider myself out of shape, but I’m also not where I want to be. I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while, but just kept putting it off. I really don’t like push-ups and curl-ups, but my body isn’t going to get in shape doing nothing. At least not the shape I want. Some people only do stuff to get in shape for summer. I missed the timing for that, but I’m OK with that. Although this challenge is only 100 days long ,this is the beginning of a new way of living. I enjoy running, but the hardest part is finding time.
I made a change in my schedule. Fitness is no longer something I fit in where I can, I have intenionally put it on my calendar.
Since I’m only tracking number for running, push-ups, and curl-ups, it may seem like this is focused on my Navy Reserve physical readiness test (PRT). That’s important, but there are other reasons I want to be in the best possible shape.
For the purpose of this challenge, a week will begin on Monday and end on Sunday. Every week, I want to:
Have you started you own fitness routine? What are you doing to get in shape? What are your goals? I’d love for you to let me know in the comments!
2018 is my year to get fit. I intend to post a before and after picture. As a starting point, my day measurements are:
Happy Kamehameha Day! Today is in honor of King Kamehameha I, also known as Kamehameha the Great. He united the Hawaiian Islands into a royal kingdom in 1810. Read more about King Kamehameha Day. It’s no coincidence the official launch date for Aloha Geoffrey is a Hawaiian holiday.
E komo mai (that means “Welcome, come in” in Hawaiian”) and thank-you for visiting Aloha Geoffrey – my new personal site. Aloha Geoffrey officially launches today. There may still be some changes as I figure out what works best.
My name is Geoffrey and I’m passionate about all things Hawaiʻi. I have a website where I share web development-related topics, but this is my place to share everything else. Some of the things you’ll see here include:
For more on what you can expect, please take a look at the Start Here page.
Have any questions or comments about anything you see on Aloha Geoffrey or suggestions on what you would like to see? Let me know! Even if I don’t know the answer, I’ll do my best to find it for you. Now it’s on to the exciting stuff.
Aloha a hui hou (until we meet again)!
As you can see in the last picture, the can definitely left a rust ring on the glass, and even that took some scrubbing to get off. Make sure you put the can on something so it won’t stain your crockpot. I tried two different brands of sweetened condensed milk, just to see if there was a difference. The consistency of Nestle Carnation was very smooth, just like what I was expecting. I also tried Eagle Brand and it was more the consistency of sour cream, but the taste itself was similar.
Original recipe: Chicken of the Sea’s Tuna Twist Casserole.
This is a very easy recipe that you can change the ingredient proportions to make it just the way you like. You can also make these in oven-safe bowls, but the casserole was more convenient for us.
