Vodka has less calories than wine

I’m home! 

I wrote on my facebook wall yesterday after i landed….that it’s pretty special that i can say that i’m 

coming “home” to Kauai. On the flight home i was sitting next to a family with three kids all around the same ages

as mine….and they asked how i love the North Shore and how do i deal with all the rain.

Most tourists stay on the South/West side because of that reason. It’s drier…it’s warmer….and they think 

it rains all year long here on the Northshore.

I told her we all tell everyone it rains all the time because it’s to keep the tourists on that side of the island;-)

Oh…we get rain alright. For two weeks before Thanksgiving it rained for 10 days straight…..but it’s because of the rain…

that makes the North shore of Kauai one of the most beautiful places in the world. But our average here on the North side is

a balmy 82 degrees.

Today is the ending of week 13 of my circuit training with Gabby…..

{i missed a few classes while i was in New Mexico..and i might have had some huevos rancheros one morning}

but i stepped on the scale last night and i’m down 12 pounds.

12 pounds!!

{Free tip:….by folding your arms up and resting them on your hips…

….it makes them look thinner then if you  just let them hang by your side}

There are still a good 12 weeks of class left….which means i’m not done yet!

Gabby and her family live here for 6 months out of the year…..

she does the classes FOR FREE….{read more about it HERE}

and it’s by invite only. I was lucky enough to score an invite by a friend

that was already in the class. 

The classes are three days a week….and on the alternate days i’ve been walking a 4 mile loop.

I hate running. {even though i did that 5k last year…..but i think i was drugged when i signed up for it}

I never felt that high that people talk about when running….so just doing the long walk works for me. I also

am walking in one of the most beautiful places in the world….and i get to see the ocean as i walk.

It clears my mind.

{well….and a good vodka with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice}

I’m pretty sure vodka has less calories than wine…but don’t quote me on this bit of info….

i just know that working my ass off…..and drinking vodka….

{okay…..maybe investing in a juicer and drinking green juice every day has helped a teeny tiiny bit}

has lead me to lose 12 pounds.


  1. You are amazing! Sounds like a tough class. Good for you for keeping up with it!

    Sitting here on my butt reading this and feeling pathetic after not working out since Monday. I do have a cold, but I’m pretty sure I could try harder. 😉

  2. Okay, you got my attention with the Vodka bit…but that butt! I don’t normally comment on one’s arse, but sheesh…it’s lookin good Mrs Kasey.

    You need to write a little “how to do Kauaii right” ebook. You’s have all the best bits of advice…where to jump off the pier, best place to drink boxed wine, where to find free movies…

    Have so loved keeping up with your families adventure!

  3. I’m heading out RIGHT NOW to get some vodka!

  4. Wowza girl! YOu go.

  5. Anne McCarthy says:

    Seriously, that must be some serious working out (along withthe vodka) going for you!
    I just linked over to Gabby’s site, and that class looks like it kicks some butt.
    Way to go.

  8. You look great Kasey! Your hard work is paying off.

  9. Hottie!!!

    I just watched Gabby’s video. Boy, she doesn’t mess around.

  10. Well you are always darling, but good job! I too am drinking green juice I hope it helps me. ~Cheers Kim

  11. Suzanne G says:

    You look fantastic!
    Mind if I ask what kind of juicer you bought? You’ve inspired me to want to try juicing.

  12. You do look great! We’ve been thinking of juicing, need more recipes/tips. Mahalo.

  13. Fa-sha! You are rocking that body! Congrats!

  14. I hope your Mom is ok. Ive been praying for her. You look great. 12 lbs is a LOT. Im stuck at 6 and cant jump off. Monday Im trying something new.. Im just going to drink margaritas and see if barfing helps. 🙂 Yes Im having one now…
    I hope some day I can visit Hawaii. Never been there and always wondered what Im missing…
    Glad you made it home safe…

  15. Whooo hoooo!!! You look hot Kasey!! Hawaii has been good to you. 🙂

  16. You look amazing and I am super fat. Thanks for making me jealous;)

    Sorry to hear about your mama, but so happy they caught it in the early stages. Prayers for you and yours.

  17. too funny! my sister does those arms all the time…in pictures…we call it her “cheerleader pose”…
    we always expect her to say, “ready set, you bet!” then do a herky! ;}
    you’re sticktoativeness is an inspiration…truly!

    m ^..^

  18. Hurray on those 12 pounds, it shows! And I imagine that Gabby kicks butt! We spent our honeymoon on Kauai in December and it rained the whole time. I blamed my husband.


  19. Christie McGetrick says:

    Congrats on losing 12 pounds – I am using the juice route as well – but just getting started.
    Hope you mom is recovering nicely.

  20. Kasey… I’d love to host a relaxing girls brunch at my hale with fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice and vodka on the menu, and give us a chance to meet. We have some common girlfriends (and our boys had fun at Justin’s party too).

    We also seem to think alike, check out my post about grapefruit juice & vodka 🙂

    Welcome home to warm and wonderful Kauai!

  21. WAY to GO!!! You look fantastic…keep it up!
