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.
