day 511 – feast on eve

image

as i could have guessed, the luxurious holiday feasting goes on. day three of three and this time out with family eating a yummy lobster dinner. so much intake, definitely not the gains i want. i made up my mind that there will be some extensive exercising and training waiting for me once i get my knee fixed up in working condition. in the meantime, i might as well enjoy the rest of the holiday season full of food

today’s struggles

image

when times get rough and life gets tough, i try to remind myself that it’s only training me to be stronger for tomorrow. if the road to success was plain and simple, it would not be worth the sweat and hard work. understand that no matter what happens, there will be someone out there watching over you and ready to give you support when you most need it. and know that someone will be there to catch you when you fall, but ultimately its up to you yourself to stand back up and carry on. i know very well that if i stick with it and put in the effort, its just a matter of time before i get the results i want. it’s all about taking the necessary steps knowing everyday i will be stronger than the day before. because nothing beats being able to do something i couldn’t do yesterday and only i can change that

day 385 – go get them

image

attempting to break new ground and find new sources of entertainment. this will be my next challenge to improve and perfect. recent interested in the exploration to add cooler and flashier moves to my skillset, so i am set to go get them. the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step

day 359 – flashback

image

looking at this photo of me back in the day makes me laugh. this was my first ever competition years ago and i have never looked back since and have gone on to many more. who knew this competition kickstarted my interest in competition and to this day still continue to compete whenever possible. seven years and counting, i have risen to and accepted many challenges along the way. been plagued with numerous undesirable injuries ranging in severity, but nothing stops me from doing what i care about. i have learned and gained so much, transformed from a girl who didn’t have the confidence to speak up in front of people to now having the confidence to step in the ring alone and perform in front of a large crowd. this is not to say its in my comfort zone because i do get nervous every time, but at least i am willing to take that step forward and do what needs to be done

day 315 – physio’s jail free verdict

image

one of the best days that brought me the happiest news in past three weeks. physio informed me xrays shows no fracture and i no longer require an mri like initially suggested. which ultimately means i am finally jail free and cleared to gradually get back. all i need to do is do the exercise as i am told to work my way back up, and let my physio take care of the rest and hopefully make my comeback soon. it will for sure involve a lot of patience, hard work, training and tons of beating. i will no doubt work hard at it and push myself within the constraints, because i am determined to get back and surpass my top form

day 251 – dig deep

image

shutting myself off from the world and staying away from places that created all the frustration and uncertainties. taking all the bashing and fustigation and putting into perspective and using that to ignite the fight in me. trying to clear up my mind, refresh my soul and reenergize myself to continue moving forward in the path i have chosen. recognizing the only option i have is to dig deep and persevere, is the words of a good friend of mine

day 108 – don’t let my mind go astray

image

after shutting the world out of my life for twelve hours, thinking long and hard about my many misfortunes. i have no answer for all the things i cannot control, but i have come to conclusion that i will only work harder to achieve what i thought i never could and push beyond my limits. afterall, i would not be me if i had given up so easily
