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!!!

AGAIN I WOKE AT 4:00AM FOR ANOTHER SET OF WORKOUTS!!!



THE AFTER EFFECTS IS AMAZING!!!  I LOVE TO RECHARGE MY BODY BEFORE I GO TO WORK!!!


AND GUESS WHAT I HAD FOR LUNCH...  "SHAKEOLOGY" AND A FRESH PAPAYA FROM THE BIG ISLAND...  YES I REPEAT...  FROM THE BIG ISLAND...  PLEASE DON'T ASK HOW MUCH I PAID FOR THIS...  LOL!!!

KICKING MY "ALOHA MONDAY" MORNING HARDCORE!!!

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!

I GOT UP AT 4;00AM IN THE MORNING...  TOOK MY VITAMINS & FIBER...  AND STRAIGHT TO MY WORKOUTS!!!



90 MINUTES LATER...  I KILLED BOTH OF WORKOUTS!!!

AND NEXT UP...  STRAIGHT TO WORK FOR MY ANNUAL "CONTROLLED-TACTICS" TRAINING!!!


I GOT THE WHOLE PLACE TO MYSELF...  WHO WANTS TO GET RESTRAINED???



FOR LUNCH I SHARED MY VIETNAMESE SPRING ROLLS THAT TRINA MADE FOR ME THE DAY BEFORE!!!




MAHALO NUI LOA E TRINA...  YOU ARE THE BEST!!!




MY CO-WORKER, TONY WHO ALSO IS TAKING THE TRAINING WITH ME!!!


I MUST ADMIT...  I'VE BEEN DOING THIS TRAINING EVERY YEAR FOR THE LAST 13 YEARS, BUT THIS TRAINING WAS DIFFERENT...  I WAS MORE FLEXIBLE, MORE AGILE, MORE STAMINA, MORE STRONGER THAN ALL OF MY PAST CLASSES.  I CAN CREDIT MY TRAINING AND WORKOUTS OVER THE LAST 2-3 YEARS WHEN I STARTED...  HOWEVER...  IF I HAD TO CREDIT ONE THING...  I GIVE IT TO "PIYO" TRAINING!!!

IT IS ALL ABOUT "CORE-STRENGTH" AND MIXING BOTH "PILATES" & "YOGA" TOGETHER WITH ADDED STRENGTH & CARDIO...  THIS HAS DEFINITELY ADDED HUGE IMPROVEMENTS TO MY HEALTH & BODY!!!

I LOOK FORWARD TO DOING "PIYO" FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE WITH MORE EXCITING TRAININGS TO ADD TO IT!!!

I WANT TO GIVE A SPECIAL SHOUT OUT TO MY WONDERFUL COACH, ANGELA FOR INTRODUCING ME TO "PIYO"...  MEETING YOU IN OCTOBER 2014 AT THE IRONMAN TRIATHLON WAS NO "COINCIDENCE", IT WAS A PRAYER THAT WAS ANSWERED!!!

AND FOR THAT...  I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL!!!

AND FOR THE DECEMBER PHOTO OF THE DAY - DECEMBER 15TH, 2014 - "SPARKLE"...

BE READY FOR THIS ONE...  LOL!!!


I'LL ADMIT...  I LOVE MY GUNS...  THE "OTHER GUNS"...  LOL!!!
