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!!!"

STILL TRAINING HARD, EATING CLEAN, AND LIVING ALOHA!!!

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!


AS I AM WRITING THIS BLOG, KAHEALANI WILL BE ON HER WAY BACK TO ALASKA IN 24 HOURS!!!  I AM SO EXCITED TO SEE HER AGAIN.  WE HAVE HUGE PLANS FOR THE SUMMER BUT I'LL SIMPLY LET THE BLOG DO ALL THE TALKING AS WE SUMMER DAYS GOES WITH THE FLOW OF OUR LIVES.


SO WHAT HAS BEEN NEW WITH ME???  PRETTY MUCH NOT A WHOLE LOT!!!  JUST KIDDING!!!  HONESTLY I DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN...  SO HERE GOES!!!

AS FOR MY TRAINING AND HEALTHY EATING, I'M STRIVING REALLY WELL!!!







I'M SO LOVING MY HYPERTROPHY SUPERSETS TRAINING!!!  I INCREASED THE WEIGHTS AND INTENSITY WHILE STILL BEING GENTLE WITH MY KNEES AND I'M MAKING SOME AWESOME GAINS AND PROGRESS!!!

AND FOR CLEAN EATS...









THESE CHICKEN LETTUCE WRAPS ARE THE BOMB.  THERE ARE SIMPLE AND FAST TO PREP AND EASY TO GO MEALS!!!

I MIXED THE CHICKEN WITH CHOPPED CELERY, ONIONS, AND CILANTRO.  ADD THE A SCOOP OF MAYO BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE PLAIN YOGURT AND ADD CRAISINS AND FRESH SQUEEZED LIMES WIT SALT & PEPPER TO TASTE.  MIX IT ALL UP AND WRAP IT UP IN A ROMAINE LETTUCE AND THAT'S IT!!!

I CAN DO ABOUT 3-4 WRAPS AND I'M DONE!!!  LOTS OF PROTEIN!!!







MY COUSIN ALISSA GOT ME INTO "JUICE PLUS", ITS PRETTY MUCH GETTING ALL YOUR DAILY VEGGIES AND FRUITS NEEDS IN PILLS INCLUDING OMEGAS WHICH I AM A VERY BIG FAN OF.  I'VE BEEN TAKING THEM FOR A WEEK NOW BUT I'LL KNOW AFTER A MONTH OR SO WHERE I'LL START TO FEEL THE BENEFITS, SO I'LL BE KEEPING ALL OF YOU UPDATED ALONG THE WAY.






ANOTHER DAY IN THE ARENA AFTER TRAINING.

BUT IT FEELS GOOD AND THE ENDORPHINS ARE RUNNING CRAZY INSIDE OF ME!!!





I WENT TO GO SEE THIS FILM BECAUSE...  WELL I'M AN AWESOME, CARING, LOVING, WONDERFUL, HANDSOME FATHER TO A BEAUTIFUL 15 YEARS OLD DAUGHTER WHO WILL MORE THAN LIKELY GO THRU THIS PHASE VERY SOON. SO I FIGURE I GO SEE THE THIS FILM AND SEE WHERE IT TAKES ME.


AND MY CONCLUSION TO THIS...  POOR GUYS WHO EVEN DARE TO TRY...  LOL!!!

OVERALL A GOOD AND FUNNY FILM.

JUST THIS PAST WEEKEND I WAS INVITED TO SEVERAL GRADUATION PARTIES FOR THE CLASS OF 2018 FROM THE BETHEL REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL.




MY ISLAND ESKIMO WAHINE, ALAINA FLEW DOWN TO SEE HER COUSIN JAMIE GRADUATE.  IT WAS NICE TO SEE HER.



CONGRATULATIONS TO SVEN AND JAMIE AND THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME OVER.  IT WAS GREAT TO SEE EVERYONE AND I WISH THE BEST TO ALL THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 2018!!!




SINCE I PRETTY MUCH CUT MY ALCOHOL INTAKE TO ALMOST ZERO, I WANTED TO COME UP WITH MY MIX THAT WASN'T TOO HEAVY IN ALCOHOL, MINIMAL SUGAR, AND YUMMY TO SIP.

I MIXED SAKE OR SOCHU WITH CLUB SODA AND ADDED MINT LEAVES AND LIMES WITH ICE.  THIS IS MY NEW DRINK OF CHOICE!!!  ITS WAY BETTER THAN BEER BECAUSE ITS SO DAMN FATTENING AND HEAVY...  GRRR!!!  AND BETTER THAN HARD LIQUOR WITH ALL THE HEAVY HANGOVERS.  JUST TO CLEAR THINGS UP, I'M CREATING ALTERNATIVES DRINKS SO I CAN CONTINUE ONWARD WITH MY HEALTH AND FITNESS LIFESTYLE.  NO WORRIES, I'LL ALWAYS BE OPEN FOR THE SPECIAL OCCASIONS...  LOL!!!


AND WHAT ABOUT "CHEAT MEALS???"

SO THIS IS A HUGE CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC FOR THE HEALTH FREAKS...

IT REALLY COMES DOWN TO MODERATION AND OFF-SETTING YOUR PLATEAU WHICH IS WHY THESE "CHEAT DAYS' ARE CREATED.  IT ALSO HELPS WITH DISCOURAGEMENT AND IT ALSO CAN BE AN INCENTIVE, BUT KNOW THIS...  DO NOT INDULGE TOO MUCH AND THEN OUT GOES ALL YOUR HARD WORK YOU DID THE WEEK BEFORE.  A SIMPLE FORMULA I USE ON MYSELF, DO NOT EAT MORE IN UNHEALTHY FOOD CALORIES THAN WHAT YOU BURNED IN THE ARENA!!!












JUST THIS PAST MONDAY I WOKE UP A BEAUTIFUL DAY!!!
THE SUN IS SHINING AND THE SKIES ARE MOSTLY BLUE!!!

I IMMEDIATELY MAKE MY BED, THEN I MADE A FIBERWISE MANGO SMOOTHIE FOR MY PRE-WORKOUT, ENJOYED THE VIEW FROM MY PORCH WHILE I WRITE DOWN MY SUPERSETS FOR THE ARENA!!! 





LOOKING AT THE TIMER COUNTDOWN BEFORE I START MY NEXT REP!!!





AND MY POST-WORKOUT DRINK...  WHEY, CREATINE, AND GREEN TEA MATCHA MIXED WITH WATER.  YUMMY!!!

AFTER THAT IT WAS MEAL PREPPING TIME!!!

MY FRIEND MAYA SHARED THIS "3-BEAN AVOCADO SALAD" RECIPE AND I DECIDED TO GIVE IT TRY!!!

IT ORIGINALLY CALLS FOR THE FOLLOWING:

1- CAN BLACK BEANS
1 - CAN GARBONZO BEANS
1 - CAN RED KIDNEY BEANS
1-WHOLE AVOCADO (DICED)
CHOPPED CILANTRO
CHOPPED GARLIC
OLIVE OIL
FRESH SQUEEZED LIME JUICE
SALT & PEPPER TO TASTE

MIX ALL THIS UP AND...  BOOM!!!



I DID MODIFY THIS BY ADDING CHICKEN TENDERLOINS AND GRAPE TOMATOES!!!



AND THAT IS IT, I ALL SET FOR THE WEEK!!!

HIGH IN PROTEIN, GOOD FATS, AND GOOD CARBS, LOW IN CALORIES!!!  I EAT THIS RIGHT AFTER I'M DONE RUNNING OR BIKING AT 4AM EVERY MORNING...  I TIMED MY EATING AND WORKOUTS ON PURPOSE SO I CAN BENEFIT THE BEST OF IT.


NOW ITS TIME TO ASSEMBLE MY NEW BBQ GRILL THAT I BOUGHT FROM HOME DEPOT!!!

I'VE BEEN WANTING A HALF BARRELL TYPE OF GRILL BECAUSE ITS LARGE AND THE HEAT ARE EVENLY BALANCED.



MY FRIENDS, JAMES AND MATTHEW HELPING ME OUT.




AND THE FINISHED PRODUCT!!!

RIB-EYES ARE ON ITS WAY VERY SOON!!!

THANK YOU JAMES AND MATTHEW FOR HELPING ME PUT THIS BAD BOY TOGETHER!!!

SUMMER IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!!!

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!

AS MOST OF YOU KNOW MY HOME, HAWAI'I HAS BEEN IN THE MEDIA FOR SOME TIME ABOUT THE ONGOING VOLCANO ERUPTIONS.

MY FAMILIES ARE OKAY AND FAR AWAY FROM THE AREAS WHERE ALL THE LAVA FLOW IS AFFECTING. 

THIS IS AN AMAZING EVENT SINCE 1955 WHERE KILAUEA WAS STRONG AND IN 1984 WHERE MAUNA LOA WERE ACTIVE!!!

EVENTUALLY IT WILL HIT THE OCEAN AND SO FAR IT HAS 18 FISSURES AND CLAIMED OVER 3 DOZENS STRUCTURES AS OF NOW. 








CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR EVERYONE THAT ARE AFFECTED.

SO WHATS BEEN NEW WITH ME, YOU ASKED???

WELL LETS BACK TRACK A FEW WEEKS AS WINTER IS OFFICIALLY OVER, THE KUSKOKWIM RIVER IS NOW BROKE AND FREE AND THE EVERYONE IS WAITING TO GO FISHING.



AS FOR ME...  I FLEW INTO ANCHORAGE TO GO WATCH A MUSICAL PLAY, "CABARET".

Welcome to the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd – and to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through the dangerous times? more..


SITTING NEXT TO YOUR ALASKA AIRLINES LEADER/SUPERVISOR AND TAKING A SELFIE WITH HIM AND HE DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE...  PRICELESS!!!  I ONLY WISHED I RECORDED HIM SINGING WITH HIS HEADPHONES ON, IT WAS FUNNY AS SHIT!!!


AND I ALWAYS GET MY GREEN TEA FRAP, ITS MY NEW FAVORITE DRINK WHENEVER I GO TO STARBUCKS.

ON ANOTHER WEEKEND TRIP, I HEADED BACK TO ANCHORAGE TO DO SOME SHOPPING AND HANG OUT WITH FRIENDS.

FIRST THING I DID WAS PICK UP FLOWERS FOR MOTHER'S DAY.  I MADE ARRANGEMENTS THROUGH A FRIEND OF MINES WHO OWNS FLOWERS BY MARIE.  SHE IS VERY REASONABLE, FRIENDLY, AND TAKES GREAT CARE AND PRIDE IN HER FLOWERS.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER IF YOU EVER NEED FLOWERS.  SHE DOES ALL TYPES OF OCCASIONS AND SHE DELIVERS AND ALSO DELIVERS TO AIRPORT FOR ALL ALASKA BUSH ORDERS

.

MY BEAUTIFUL FRIEND MARIE, THE OWNER OF "FLOWERS BY MARIE"



SHE DEFINITELY GAVE ME A WONDERFUL SELECTIONS OF ASSORTED FLOWERS INCLUDING A DOZEN YELLOW ROSES.  SHE PACKED THEM VERY WELL AND HAD THEM READY FOR ME TO TAKE BACK HOME FOR MOM.




THESE LOVELIES ARE THE BEST AND THEY TRULY BRING THE FUN AND EXCITEMENT OUT OF ME, FOR I AM VERY FORTUNATE TO BE PART OF THEIR CRAZIES!!!  I'LL BE BACK SOON LADIES!!!


MY CHEAT MEAL BEFORE HEADING BACK TO BETHEL.  ITS FILIPINO FOOD FOR ME, DINAGUAN AND PORK ADOBO...  SUPER HIGH IN EVERYTHING I DON'T NEED IN MY BODY AND THANK GOD IT WAS A CHEAT MEAL.


AND HERE I AM CHILLING WITH MY FRAP WAITING TO CHECK IN.




I FELT LIKE BEING CREATIVE AND THOUGHT THIS WOULD BEING SMILES TO THE ALASKA AIRLINES CSA AND RSA CREW.
#iamalaska



LANDED SAFELY AND BACK IN BETHEL!!!


AS SOON AS I ARRIVED BACK TO BETHEL, I GRABBED MY FLOWERS AND HEADED OVER TO MY MOM'S AND SHE WAS SLEEPING WHICH WAS PERFECT AND I ARRANGED HER FLOWERS SO SHE CAN WAKE UP TO THIS...



THE NEXT DAY I WENT BACK TO MOM'S FOR LUNCH AND ENJOYED MY VISIT WITH MOM, MAURICE, CHRISTIANA, AND ARYA.


MY FAVORITE SEASONING.



HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY MOM & CHRISTIANA!!!



I ALSO WANT TO GIVE A HUGE SHOUT OUT TO MY 2 NEPHEWS WHO GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL.

KEKOA AND KAWIKA...  CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS, I AM VERY PROUD OF YOU BOTH, NOW THE WORLD IS YOURS TO EXPLORE!!!


KEKOA







KAWIKA



I'M STILL STAYING ON TOP OF MY TRAINING, MY KNEE IS STILL HEALING AND I CONTINUE TO USE THE STATIONARY BIKE AND I'M STILL HITTING THE ARENA MAKING GOOD PROGRESS.




HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE





I ALWAYS HAVE IT, "MY WHEY!!!"





MAKING GAINS!!!





MY NEW FAVORITE PRE-WORKOUT SHAKE, MANGO AND FIBER MIXED IN WATER.




I LOVE MY NEW GARMIN WATCH!!!




MY OWN GREEN TEA MIXED WITH ALMOND MILK.





MY MAIN MAN AND BROTHER FROM ANOTHER MOTHER, NICK FROM NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA IS FOLLOWING THE SAME STRENGTH TRAINING PROGRAM THAT I'M USING.  WE BOTH MET LAST YEAR IN NOLA AND WE BECAME FRIENDS EVER SINCE.  THIS GUY IS MAKING A GREAT PROGRESS AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HIM IN OCTOBER OF THIS YEAR!!!

AND I STILL MAKE MY BED AS SOON AS I WAKE UP.

AND HERE'S WHY...




COMING HOME TO SEE THIS AFTER WORKING BOTH JOBS IS SO REWARDING BECAUSE I DID THIS AND I CREATED MY RESTING PLACE FOR THE DAY AND/OR NIGHT AND IT IS MINES TO CLAIM AND I SLEEP IN PEACE AND WHEN I WAKE UP, I REPEAT THE PROCESS AND I HAVE BEEN DOING SO FOR THE LAST 6 WEEKS. 

I WILL TELL YOU ONE THING, SINCE I STARTED DOING THIS, MY LIFE HAS BEEN DIFFERENT AND MORE POSITIVE THAN EVER, I AM STRONGER IN CONFIDENCE, STRONGER IN BEING A RESPONSIBLE ADULT AND FATHER, STRONGER IN PATIENCE AND ACCEPTANCE, STRONGER IN MY DAILY TASKS, STRONGER IN MAINTAINING MY COMMITMENTS, STRONGER IN EVERYTHING I DO FROM MY WORKOUTS TO MY CLEAN EATING MAINTENANCE, STRONGER IN KEEPING MY TRUE FRIENDS CLOSE AND GETTING RID OF MY UNTRUE FRIENDS AKA TOXIC & JEALOUSY PEOPLE.  I WILL ONLY DO WHAT IS BEST FOR ME AND MY KAHEALANI BECAUSE WE DESERVE THE BEST THAT LIFE HAS TO OFFER.


SHE IS MY ROCK AND MOTIVATION TO KEEP LIVING STRONG!!!








THIS IS 100% TRUTH ABOUT ME...  MAKE ME PANCAKES AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS!!!




NOW THIS HEAR IS A SWEET YAM PANCAKES COVERED IN YAM SAUCE AND TOPPED WITH COCONUT SHAVINGS...  FML!!!  IF ANYONE EVER MAKES ME THIS, I CAN'T PROMISE I'LL BE GENTLE IN BED IF IT LEADS TO THAT...  LOL!!!

YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!!!



AND I AM STILL YOUR FRIENDLY HAWAIIAN RAMP SERVICE AGENT FROM ALASKA AIRLINES!!!






AND THAT PRETTY MUCH SUMS OF MY CURRENT AND GENUINE LIFE!!!
