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 “TEAM AWWWRITE!!!”

MY 2ND WEEK WAS ANOTHER “AWESOME” ADVENTURE FOR ME!!!  I CONTINUED TO TRAIN HARD AND CONTINUED TO FOLLOW MY DISCIPLINED EATING.  I ALSO STARTED LOGGING MY FOOD INTAKES AND LEARNED TO BREAK IT DOWN TO:  “PROTEIN”, “CARBS”, “FATS” AND “CALORIES”.  THIS HAS BROUGHT ME INTO A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF AWARENESS OF SURROUNDINGS WHEN IT CAME TO EATING AND TRAINING.  BOY WAS I HUMBLED!!!  BUT “I AM” ALL ABOUT “SUCCESS” BEING ACHIEVED THROUGH HARD WORK, COMMITMENT, AND DETERMINATION!!!

MY DAILY INTAKE CALORIES IS:  2288 WITH A BREAKDOWN OF:  40% PROTEIN, 40% CARBS, 20% FATS.  I ALSO CONSUME 1 GALLON OF ICED COLD WATER THROUGHOUT THE DAY NOT INCLUDING MY “PROTEIN SHAKES” AND “FIBER DRINKS”.  

I BURNED A TOTAL OF:  “3627 CALORIES FROM MONDAY THRU FRIDAY!!! 

ON SATURDAY MORNING I COOKED UP A "HAWAI'I LOCAL FAVORITE DISH", "FRIED RICE MUSUBI" FOR THE KIDS AT MY JOB.  IT WAS THE FIRST TIME FOR THEM TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND THEY LOVED IT.  LOOKS LIKE ITS GOING TO BE AN EXPECTED ITEM IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE...  LOL!!!

AND GUESS WHAT???  

I AM BACK TO “BALLROOM DANCING” AND LATIN DANCING” CLASSES AGAIN!!!  FOR THOSE OF YOU DIDN’T KNOW, BACK IN 2007 I STARTED TAKING DANCE CLASSES AS IT WAS MY PASSION GOING WAY BACK INTO MY HIGH SCHOOL DAYS.  AFTER NEARLY 20 YEARS LATER, I FINALLY HAD THE COURAGE TO SIGN UP AND STARTED MY JOURNEY INTO A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF FUN.  I’VE BEEN DOING IT FOR 2 STRAIGHT YEARS AND THEN TOOK A BREAK DUE TO UNEXPECTED CHALLENGES BUT NOW AFTER NEARLY 4 YEARS…  I AM BACK!!!  AND LAST NIGHT I WAS HAPPY TO BE BACK IN DANCE CLASS!!!  

AFTER DANCE CLASS, MY DANCE INSTRUCTOR INVITED ME OVER A LATE NIGHT SNACK AND WE BOTH HAD A BLOCK OF HOT TOFU SPRINKLED WITH "TWICE COOKED SALMON" WHICH LOOKED MORE LIKE DRY SALMON FISH FLAKES.  BUT IT WAS VERY DELICIOUS OR IN HAWAI'I WE SAY:  "ONO!!!"  IT WAS A HEALTHY SNACK FOR ME AND A PERFECT WAY TO END MY WEEK!!!

I’M GOING BACK TO “EAST COAST SWING DANCING” THIS COMING THURSDAY AND HOPEFULLY BACK TO NEXT WEEK SATURDAY NIGHT FOR MORE “HUSTLE” AND MAYBE “BOLERO”…  AWWWRITE!!!

I’M ALSO HELPING OUT WITH TWO POSSIBLE DOG MUSHING TEAMS FOR THE UPCOMING ANNUAL “KUSKOKWIM 300 DOG RACE SCHEDULED FOR NEXT WEEK FRIDAY AND SATURDAY.  SO IT LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER “AWWWESOME” WEEK FOR ME!!!
KEEP PUSHING YOURSELF UNTIL YOU GET THE RESULTS YOU SAID YOU WERE GOING TO ACHIEVE WITH “NO EXCUSES!!!”

 "NUFF SAID..."


 A CLOSER LOOK AT WHAT I MADE FOR BREAKFAST FOR THE KIDS AT MY WORKPLACE:
"FRIED RICE MUSUBI"


 ANOTHER VERSION OF MAKING "FRIED RICE MUSUBI"


 ME & TERESA ENJOYING THE "HUSTLE DANCE!!!"


 THANK YOU TERESA FOR INVITING ME OVER!!!


ANOTHER COOL DANCE MOVE!!!


"TWICE COOKED SALMON"

Give the world the best you have, and the best will come to you.
