MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!

MY INTRO

ALOHA AND WELCOME TO MY PERSONAL BLOG!!! I THOUGHT WHY NOT SHARE MY PERSONAL GAINS & STRUGGLES THAT LIFE PUTS OUT TO EACH AND ONE OF US. I FEEL THAT THROUGH THE GIFT OF "GIVING & SHARING", THERE IS NO WAY BETTER THAN START THIS BLOG WHICH IS ALL ABOUT ME, MY OHANA (FAMILY), HOALOHA (FRIENDS), AND EVEN ENEMIES WHICH ARE THE VERY ONES I NEED TO LOVE AND ACCEPT.


I'LL SAY THIS STRAIGHT UP, I DON'T HOLD BACK MY FEELINGS FOR ANYONE AND IT'LL COME OUT OF MY MOUTH ON HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU AND OTHERS. I DON'T GO BEHIND ANYONE'S BACK AND START RUMOURS WITH HOPES THAT IT WILL CIRCLE AROUND AND FINALLY HIT ITS TARGET. WHY TAKE THE LONG ROUTE WHEN I CAN GO STRAIGHT TO THE POINT. PERSONALLY, I THINK THAT IS THE "REAL" WAY OF LIVING LIFE, "BE REAL" AT ALL TIMES EVEN WHEN THE WORLD IS WATCHING.


ON THE OTHER NOTE, "I AM" THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE FROM THE WAY "I SEE IT". I AM NOT SPEAKING FROM OTHER PEOPLE'S FEEDBACK OR "CONCEITEDNESS". "THIS IS" WHAT I CHOOSE TO SEE MYSELF EVERYDAY WHEN I WAKE UP FROM MY BED AND THANK "AKUA" (GOD) FOR GIVING ME ONE MORE DAY TO LIVE, REGARDLESS OF REGRETS FROM THE "YESTERDAYS" TO THE FEARS OF "TOMMOROWS".


IN MY EYES, LIVING A "BEAUTIFUL LIFE" CAN ONLY BE ATTAINED BY "CHOICE" AND IT REQUIRES "INTEGRITY", "HONESTY", "UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE", "FORGIVENESS" AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, "LOVE".


AS MY BEAUTIFUL ANCESTORS HAVED ALWAYS BELIEVED:


'Ike aku, 'ike mai, kokua aku kokua mai; pela iho la ka nohana 'ohana.


WHICH MEANS, RECOGNIZE OTHERS, BE RECOGNIZED, HELP OTHERS, BE HELPED; SUCH IS A FAMILY RELATIONSHIP.


SO ONCE AGAIN, "WELCOME TO MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!"

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!

SEVERAL WEEKS AGO I DECIDED TO TAKE ON A PERSONAL CHALLENGE FOR MYSELF.

I'VE ALWAYS DREADED THE "BURPEE"...  LOL!!!

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON'T KNOW WHAT A "BURPEE" IS...


WITH THAT SAID...  IF YOU'VE NEVER DONE A "BURPEE", THEN I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU GIVE A TRY AND SEE WHAT YOU THINK.  IT LOOKS EASY AND IT FEELS EASY AFTER 5 OF THEM...  BUT AS YOU CONTINUE TO GO...  YOU START TO FEEL IT!!!

ANYWAYS...  BACK TO MY STORY...  ORIGINALLY IT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE A PERSONAL CHALLENGE FOR MYSELF THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN I HAD THIS URGE TO CALL SOMEONE OUT.

AND THEN I DECIDED TO CALL THIS PERSON OUT...


THE "AWWWESOME" ERICA M.  SHE IS "WEIO" - (http://www.weio.org/)COMPETITOR AND DOES MANY OTHER SIMILAR SPORTS COMPETITION...  TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT...  SHE IS JUST A "BEAST" IN THE GYM AND TO ANYTHING SHE DECIDES TO DO...  LOL!!!

I HAD THE WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO MEET THIS YOUNG BEAUTIFUL ATHLETE JUST THIS PAST SUMMER IN FAIRBANKS, ALASKA AT A CONFERENCE.  WE EXCHANGED INFO AND NOW IT IS ON!!!

I CALLED HER OUT ON THIS "1000 BURPEES CHALLENGE!!!"

I KNOW THIS EASY FOR HER, BUT FOR ME...  ITS PURE "INSPIRATION & MOTIVATION"...  AND BRAGGING RIGHTS!!!

SO MY RACE BEGAN YESTERDAY OCTOBER 21ST, 2014...  I COMPLETED 100 BURPEES...  AND THE RACE IS ON!!!



MY STATS:

AFTER THAT I DID A COOL DOWN STATIONARY BIKE RIDE...

MY ROAD TO "SPARTAN RACE TRAINING" - DAY 01 - INTRODUCTION.

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!

AFTER A 3 WEEK LONG BREAK FROM MY WORKOUTS, AFTER AN "AWWWESOME" 2 WEEKS OF FUN WITH OHANA IN HAWAI'I...  IT IS TIME TO GET BACK INTO FULL TRAINING AGAIN...  AND YOU KNOW WHAT...  I AM SUPER EXCITED TO BE BACK IN TRAINING!!!

FROM HERE ON OUT...  I WILL BE POSTING UPDATES OF MY JOURNEY TO MY FIRST SPARTAN RACE COMING UP IN MARCH 15, 2015 IN O'AHU, HAWAI'I!!!

TO BE HONEST...  I AM SO SCARED AND SUPER NERVOUS RIGHT NOW, I ASK MYSELF, "WHAT THE HELL AM I THINKING???"  AND AT THE SAME TIME, MY SUB-CONSCIOUS LEVEL OF MY MIND IS SAYING...  "PIECE OF CAKE BECAUSE I OWNED THIS ALREADY!!!"

IT IS THE POWER OF "VISUALIZATION" THAT PUSHES ME FORWARD, IT IS THE POWER OF "OWNERSHIP OF MY GOALS & DREAMS" THAT TELLS ME THAT "I AM DESERVING"...  AND THE REST IS UP TO ME!!!

SO I INVITE ALL OF YOU TO JOIN IN MY JOURNEY AND LETS "SPARTAN UP!!!"


MY STATS:

AFTER FINISHING "DAY - 01", MY BODY HAS TRULY AWAKEN AND IT NEEDED IT VERY BADLY...  LOL!!!

BUT AT THE END...  "I WIN!!!"

RIGHT AFTER MY WORKOUTS, I HEADED OVER TO MY OTHER FUN ACTIVITY, "DOG-MUSHING TRAINING - DAY 01".

IT IS ALSO PART OF MY GOAL TO LEARN HOW TO DOG MUSH!!!


THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING!!!




THIS IS TAKEN RIGHT OUTSIDE OF MY DRIVEWAY...  WINTER HAS ARRIVED!!!



STAY TUNED FOR MORE EXCITING UPDATES!!!
