day 1984 – snatch desires

i finally did something that has been on my list for the longest time – get serious with olympic lifting. i acquired the skill three years ago, but slowly drifted away because time was a big restraining factor. i would still do cleans here and there, but never touching snatches since the drop. it only further dampened my hopes of returning to olympic lifting when my shoulder fell apart six months ago. i knew i had to do something if i truly wanted it back. the first step to getting serious was to reach out to a coach who would correct and refine my techniques. today’s first session was very good on working through regaining the fundamentals and correcting any bad habits

day 1289 – all girls team

week one of six girls coming together, all with sound dodgeball fundamentals. i had a great time at dodgeball tonight and racking up wins with executed teamwork. although i didn’t make nearly as many catches, i had the arm going throwing out at least a dozen players. this has to be one of my top vdl moments in my many seasons of dodgeball; one that had a lot of laughter and positive vibe. tiering up is just a matter of time. there’s a lot to look forward to for this season

starting a new series called resolution series inspired by an article based on 30 new year resolutions people in their 20’s should make or consider making to develop and prepare for the road ahead. the second decade of our lives is when we discover the most about ourselves as a human being, and learn to pave the road for what is to come in the future. this is the perfect opportunity to explore, experiment and experience all our options in shaping ourselves and becoming the person we want to be. there will be difficult times when it seems like there is insurmountable obstacles and challenges that lie between the start to finish line, but just know that it will be worth it in the end. i live by, and am always reminded, that when there is no pain, there is no gain. i hate thinking of the regrets in the past so here i am trying to take my life by the horn and live life to its fullest without regrets. i cherish all those that have entered my life and made a positive impact in all ways possible and i hope i have impacted other’s lives likewise. without your support, patience and guidance through all the ups and downs, i would not have the strength and motivation to continually make improvements. you listened to me when i vented, you lifted me when i fell, you held me together when i cried and ultimately showed me the meaning to true love and friendship. i am grateful for who i have become but i am not satisfied with where i am at. it’s never too late to make resolutions and changes towards a better me

it may be apparent that i have a horribly busy schedule and always pressed for time, therefore it may not be pumped out daily, but i will try my best to keep up with it. stay tuned……
