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!!!

WOW...  I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN...  THE LAST 13 DAYS WAS AN EYE OPENER FOR ME AND ESPECIALLY MY UPCOMING SPARTAN RACE!!!

THE BUTTERFLIES ARE RUNNING CRAZY INSIDE ME...  LOL!!!

ALOT OF THINGS HAS BEEN GOING ON WITH ME IN BOTH MY "PERSONAL LEVEL"  AND MY "PHYSICAL TRAINING".

LETS GET THE EASY PART OUT OF THE WAY...  LOL!!!

MY LAST POSTING I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF MY "TEAM CHALLENGE" - "I LOVE BURPEES!!!"

HERE IS THE REST OF THEM...



AND I FINALLY FINISHED MY 5 DAY CHALLENGE!!!  IT WAS FRICKEN BRUTAL!!!

THE WEEKEND HAS FINALLY ARRIVED...  IT WAS TIME TO HIT THE POOL FOR SOME RELAXATION AND FUN WITH OHANA & FRIENDS!!!



THE WATER WAS PERFECT!!!  I SWAM COUPLE LAPS...  NOT BAD FOR BEING AWAY FROM THE OCEAN FOR 6 MONTHS...  I STILL GOT MY SHARK SKILLS!!!

MY FUN WEEKEND CONTINUES...

I ALSO HAD THE LIBERTY ON EATING SOME KILLER HOMEMADE PASTRIES MADE MY GOOD FRIEND, BRUCE CLAYPOOL'S MOM...  HOMEMADE CINNAMON ROLLS AND HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE CREAM PUFFS!!!




MAHALO TO THE CLAYPOOL OHANA FOR HAVING ME OVER FOR SOME YUMMY SWEETS...  THANK GOD IT WAS ON MY CHEAT DAY...  LOL!!!


I HAD THE WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO BABYSIT THIS KIDDO!!!





I AM SUCH A POOR ROLE MODEL FOR THIS FELLOW...  WHAT WAS I THINKING...  I AM SO AGAINST THESE FOODS FOR OUR YOUNG GENERATIONS...  ARGHHH!!!



AND BACK TO THE POOL I WENT...  I WENT TO GO CHECK OUT THE "H2O CAMP" THAT THE YK-FITNESS CENTER PUT TOGETHER FOR THE KIDS DURING SPRING BREAK...  IT WAS FUN AND I WAS HAPPY TO BE PART OF THE FUN!!!




AFTER ANOTHER FUN DAY AT THE POOL...  IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO HEAD BACK HOME TO GET READY FOR WORK...  BUT FIRST...  I HADS TO PREP MY MEALS...



MY KILLER PRE-WORKOUT SHAKE BEFORE I WORKOUT AT MY JOB WITH MY CLIENTS!!!


SINCE THIS IS MY REST WEEK...  I DID AN ALL AROUND CARDIO CIRCUIT...  I MIXED IN SOME BURPEES, JUMP ROPES, AND JACK KNIVES!!!

AFTER THAT...  IT WAS TIME FOR DINNER!!!



AND  THAT IS HOW I TREAT MYSELF!!!

AND THE FOLLOWING DAY...  BACK AT THE POOL AGAIN!!!



MY "AWWWESOME" CO-WORKER, BRITANNY!!!




THE KIDS AT "CAMP H2O".

AND ANOTHER DINNER PREP BEFORE I HEAD TO WORK!!!



THE NEXT DAY I WENT TO GET MY EYES FITTED FOR CONTACT LENS.  I DON'T CARE FOR THEM BUT MY SPARTAN RACE IS COMING UP SOON AND I BETTER GET THEM SO I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT MY GLASSES FALLING OR BREAK IF ANY OF THE OBSTACLES GET TOO INTENSE!!!

WHEN I LEFT THE EYE CLINIC, I CAME ACROSS THESE COOL NATIVE ESKIMO ARTS & CRAFTS...






AFTER THAT I HEADED OUT TO THE STORE AND RAN INTO THESE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS SELLING GIRLS SCOUT COOKIES!!!





THEN I HEADED HOME TO PREP MY POST WORKOUT MEAL...  GREEK CHICKEN FILLING WRAPPED IN A SPINACH TORTILLA!!!



AFTER A COOL 30 MINUTES OF MIXED CARDIO...  BURPEES, JUMP ROPES, JACK KNIVES, AND PULL UPS...




IT WAS SO WORTH IT!!!
