“I told you so.” We could just leave it at that. We could end the entry right here and now. “I told you so.” That’s the beginning, middle, and end of it, I suppose; but, then again, really, it’s not. So, yes, I do get a point or two for being right. I do get one hell of a great laugh at the expense of the man I love more than anything else on this globe. But, I get something more… I get a partner who is determined to get in shape, to look as sexy as he can, to becoming again as close as he can (physically)  to the twenty-four year old man I fell in love with 18 years ago.

We’ve done a lot of amazing things on this around the world family adventure. We’ve fought, cried, laughed, and ate cool things. We’ve seen unreal sites, had unbelievably deep conversations facing sunsets, and witnessed cool strangers-become-friends. One of the really amazing things we’ve done is decide what are the most important things for us to accomplish these next few years. If nothing else, what is on our ‘get-around-to-it-one-day’  list that we must get done?

Getting in shape is on that list (actually, it was my number one) and has taken a huge role in our daily decisions and lifestyle choices. We haven’t talked about it too much yet, but you’ll hear about it more and more in the coming weeks.

Here is Kobi (it’s ok, you can laugh- we all have, including Kobi) trying to over-enthusiastically get into shape after not moving a muscle in a looong time. He wants one thing; and his body wants something very different . Enjoy the video and enjoy the cruel, evil wife laughing her head off!


We’d love to connect with you. We feel that we’re all here to inspire and strengthen each other. We’re traveling the globe right now, you are at home (or on the road) and we’d love to share with you. Leave a comment and tell us how you are, how this relates to your life. Join us on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. We’d really really love that!

Gabi, Kobi, Solai, Orazi, and Dahnya


  1. Oh Gabi, my dear. I love you guys and we haven’t even met (yet). You know, in the back of my mind I have been thinking that our upcoming trip will be good for our health. I know we’ll be more active (I type this after three full days of sitting at the computer from 9 am til 7 pm), and we’ll probably eat better (well… maybe). I love your team approach here. And laughter is always good for you. 🙂

    • Oh man I relate to this all too well! And thanks for the laugh 🙂 We’ve been loving our expat life and on our current trip back to LA for Xmas we realised that we must have Brit stomachs now because we can’t finish any meals! Also after a week we are getting all achey because we’re driving everywhere rather than walking. Here I thought I hadn’t begun working out yet, but my change in where we live also changed our health and for the better. So now I’m excited to get back home to my walking commute, smaller portions, and to step it up a level and actually get fit again. We’ll see how we do haha
