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!!!"

"PROJECT SYNERGY" - PHASE 02 - WEEK 03 RECAP.

ALOHA "TEAM AWWWRITE!!!"

WOW!!!  I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW FAST TIME FLIES!!!

IT'S BEEN 3 WEEKS INTO MY "PHASE 02" AND I'VE NEVER IMAGINED MYSELF BEING WHERE I AM AT IN LIFE.  AT THIS VERY MOMENT I AM LOOKING BACK AT WHERE I WAS SEVERAL YEARS AGO WITH MY HEALTH.


ME & KAHEALANI - AUGUST 2010.

365LBS!!!



AUGUST 2010, I WAS WEIGHING AT 365LBS, DEPRESSED, CLOSE TO BEING LABELED AS "TYPE 2 DIABETES", SUFFERING "SLEEP APNEA", BADLY OUT OF SHAPE, AND LIST GOES ON AND ON!!!

MY DOCTORS SAYS I NEEDED TO MAKE SOME SERIOUS CHANGES IN MY LIFESTYLE IF I WANTED TO LIVE LONGER AND HAPPIER.  I WAS PUT ON A VERY STRICT DIET WITH VIRTUALLY "NO SUGAR" AS POSSIBLE!!!  I THEN WAS REFERRED TO DO A "SLEEP STUDY" FOR TESTINGS ON MY "SLEEP APNEA".  I ALSO STARTED TO EXERCISE AT A  SLOW PACE TRYING TO WORK MY WAY UP.  AND THEN I GOT A "HEARING TEST" AS I'VE BEEN IN DENIAL THAT I CAN HEAR JUST PERFECTLY FINE...  LOL!!!

AFTER ACCEPTING EVERYTHING "AS IS" WITH MY LIFE, I "TOOK ACTION!!!"  LIKE I SAID BEFORE THIS YEAR'S MOTTO IS:

"TAKING ACTION!!!"

AND I AM VERY GLAD THAT I DID AND I TRUSTED THE PROCESS.

FAST FORWARD TO THE PRESENT DAY...  TODAY!!!

TYPE 2 DIABETES...  WHAT'S THAT???  NEVER EVEN CAME CLOSE TO MESSING WITH ME BECAUSE I SAID TO MY BODY THAT "I AM IN CONTROL!!!"

"SUGAR"...  BLAHHH!!!  I READ EVERYTHING ON THE LABELS BEFORE I BUY IT, AND YES  I AM VERY AWARE OF "SUGAR'S" NICKNAMES:




I THEN WENT AND DID A "SLEEP TEST" AND WAS DIAGNOSED WITH "SLEEP APNEA" AS MY DOCTOR PREDICTED.  SO I GOT MYSELF A "C-PAP MACHINE" - FOR MORE INFO, CLICK ON THE LINK:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Positive_airway_pressure

I AM STILL USING MY "C-PAP MACHINE" AND WON'T LEAVE WITHOUT IT.


FOR MY WORKOUTS...  I STARTED AT A VERY SLOW PACE AND I WAS SLOWLY SHOWING SOME RESULTS AND MY WEIGHT WAS GRADUALLY GOING DOWN TO 313LBS, BUT AFTER 2 YEARS OF ROLLERCOASTING...  I THEN SAID TO MYSELF, "WAIPA...  WAKE UP AND GET WITH IT!!!  QUIT TRYING TO TAKE THE EASY WAY OUT!!!"



AND ON AUGUST 2012 THE UNKNOWN FORCES KICKED IN, I CALL IT THE "SUBCONSCIOUS" AND "SUPER CONSCIOUS" OF MY MIND.  THEY BOTH GOT INTO MY FACE AND I SURRENDERED TO THEM AND WENT FORWARD AT FULL FORCE!!!



I WAS REFERRED TO AN ONLINE COACH, "TOM VENUTO" WHO IS A VERY WELL KNOWN  COMPETITIVE BODY BUILDER, A BODY TRANSFORMATION COACH, A NUTRITION RESEARCHER, AND A MOTIVATIONAL COACH!!!



HE BECAME MY NEW BEST FRIEND!!!  HE SET ME UP WITH A PLAN THAT WAS MADE JUST FOR ME AND I FOLLOWED EVERY SINGLE WORD AND HAVEN'T STOPPED AND I DON'T INTEND TO!!!

AND FINALLY MY "HEARING TEST"...  YES I MUST ADMIT...  I AM VERY DEAF.  OKAY...  NOW YOU HEARD ME ADMIT IT...  LOL!!!


I NOW HAVE TWO HEARING AIDS AND I LOVE THEM AND I WILL NOT LEAVE WITHOUT THEM.



ALSO THROUGHOUT MY JOURNEY TO A BETTER HEALTH AND FITNESS LIFESTYLE, I MET SEVERAL "AWWWESOME" PEOPLE WHO ALSO BECAME MY PERSONAL COACHES.  I AM NOW DOING "YOGA" AND "RUNNING" WITH MY NEW FRIEND & COACH, CHRISTI.  AND I AM ALSO DOING "ZUMBA FITNESS" WITH 2 OTHER NEW FRIENDS, CINDI & CARLA.  AND I AM BACK IN "BALLROOM & LATIN DANCING" WITH MY GOOD FRIEND FROM 2007, CHESTER.



WITH ALL THIS COMBINED I AM ON MY WAY TO A BETTER AND HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE!!!



MY CURRENT WEIGHT TODAY:


261LBS!!!



I'M OFFICIALLY IN THE "100 POUND CLUB!!!"



AND I'M NOT STOPPING THERE.  I'M GOING FOR THE "150 POUND CLUB" BECAUSE I HEARD A RUMOR THAT THE PEOPLE IN THAT CLUB HAVE "SINGLE DIGIT BODY FAT PERCENTAGE!!!"...  SO I'VE HEARD... AND THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY TO FIND OUT...  LOL!!!



HERE IS TODAY'S "KATCH-MCARDLE RESULT"



I'M ALSO SHARING THESE PICS TOO:


NECK:  17 INCHES!!!



BICEPS:  16 INCHES!!!



WAIST:  43 INCHES!!!



RUNNING WITH MY TEAMMATES, "TEAM AWWWRITE!!!"

I AM FEELING VERY PROUD OF MY ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND NOT DO I ONLY OWE TO MYSELF BUT I ALSO OWE IT TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE STOOD MY MY SIDE IN "MIND, BODY, AND SPIRIT!!!"

I WANT TO THANK EVERY ONE OF YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED LOVE & SUPPORT TOWARDS MY GOAL TO A LIVING A BETTER AND HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE SO I CAN BE AN "AWWWESOME" ROLE MODEL TO EVERYONE AROUND ME!!!

FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART,

"I LOVE YOU!!!"
