[131/300] Ride the Waves, LEVERAGE.

Hola!

Went for my first ever wakeboarding session last Sunday! I’ve been looking forward to it, because it has been something I’ve always wanted to do, and also I wantΒ to feel the surge of thrill and excitement of trying something new for the first time! Haven’t managed to successfully stand yet, but will definitely want to make that happen in my next trip! And, I really enjoy being out at the sea. This trip revived my long-forgotten desire of wanting to become a beach babe! πŸ˜‰ I’ll take more photos on my next trip!

Speaking of riding the waves, many a times in life, someone will just throw a bomb at you. I used to just catch the bomb and let it explode in my hands, complain whine cry when everything, including myself, is blown into pieces, take some time to recover and then think of the next step. A disturbing event just happened a few hours ago while I was trying to cook some pasta for myself FOR THE FIRST TIME (was looking forward to see if I’ve any hidden talent in cooking, but the event just spoilt my mood and appetite totally). Now that it has passed, I reflect back and realized I’ve been more steadfast and calm in settling this issue. And I will not just catch the bomb now, I will fly off together with the bomb as it explodes, and leverage on its huge wave of energy. This is what MD always meant by ε€ŸεŠ›ζ‰“εŠ›. LEVERAGE. Leverage on the energy brought by external events because these are beyond our control, so we choose to control our reactions and emotions. Leverage on the power of the Universe because that is a much bigger and more macro environment we live in. Just like how I was trying to leverage on the waves to push me forward and stand up while wakeboarding. With leverage, we will be able to achieve much more with optimal effort. In Chinese, we call it δΊ‹εŠεŠŸε€ (achieve full results with only half the effort).

JY, brace yourself for a fruitful, productive and possibly life-changing week ahead! 加油加油!

[122/300] Positive Affirmation

Hola hola! It’s been a good start to the month thus far!

First of all, I went for my first ever spinning class on 2 June. Man, it was really tough! My limbs had difficulty supporting my weight as I tried to get my butt off the bike, so I ended up sitting on the saddle for most of the lesson. 2 days later on 4 June, I went for my 2nd spinning lesson, and I could lift my butt off the saddle for most of the lesson! Managed to keep up with the lesson, just that my own pace is way too relaxed compared to others. Self consolation: it’s ok, there is improvement from the previous spinning class! HAHA! And I earned not 1, but 2 “badges of honour”!

Also, I’ve spotted my 3235 more than once per day! Loving the magic of Law of Attraction!

An important addition to my life during the past few days was a positive affirmation to myself. Whenever I did something which will put me in the right direction I want to head towards; be it flossing my teeth before sleep, moisturizing my legs, or waking up early for gym classes, no matter how small the action may seem, I will say to myself: FOR EVERY DISCIPLINED EFFORT, THERE IS A MULTIPLE REWARD. So you can imagine how frequently I repeat this to myself during spinning classes!

When sweat drips down my face, I feel good! When my legs feel numb, wobbly and jelly-like after spinning as if they don’t belong to my body anymore, I feel good! When I feel the aches on my butt and thigh when climbing stairs, I feel good!

Way to go JY! Can’t wait to see how gorgeous and sexy I can get as I keep burning fats and work out for the next half of the year! Sorry totally no humility or modesty here πŸ˜‰

Day 16 of 300

Hello Yellow! It’s been an awesome day today!

I woke up bright and early today (just 15 minutes later than planned), brought my running shoes out of home, and finally stepped into the gym after inactivity for so long!

Processed with Rookie

I’ve finally made the first move towards fitness and my desired toned body, and started off with a 50-minute yoga class. Honestly speaking, I’m a super inflexible person, with long limbs and stiff bones, even friends whom I used to do yoga with found my poses funny and awkward. But, I’m quite surprised that I could still manage most of the poses today! I won’t say I can do all poses really well, I did struggle with a few, was shaking and trembling while I tried real hard to maintain my balance, and my thighs were still trembling even an hour after the class! But I’ve to say it feels super awesome and shiok (a really high emotion just like awesome) to just sweat the toxin out, and the slightly-sore muscles made me feel really good. While the beads of sweat went trickling down my forehead, glided down my face and eventually landed on the yoga mat like a raindrop falling onto the ground, I could totally imagine the picture of a suckling pig’s fats and oil dripping down its skin while being roasted!

The production of happy hormones during exercise are really getting to me, and I’m so looking forward to my next gym day (which is on next Monday). Before that, I’m just gonna practice some basic moves at home, like downward-dog and plank positions in the mornings.

Another thing which started my day really well; I dreamt of my late grandparents πŸ™‚ And ah gong was standing right in front of me, slightly shorter than me, and his face was so clear! Ah ma was just shouting out to me to get me to the kitchen for some food. Although it was a very short-lived dream, it felt very sweet and I woke up feeling very blessed and warm. It kept me really happy for the entire day. I miss ah gong and ah ma.

JYMDP is back into radar as well! I’m much clearer of the tasks and actions required for the completion of this entire project, after a simple and constructive discussion with MD. So, it’s action time! WORK IT BABY!

Lastly, meet my new bedtime buddy from Ikea; his name is Charming πŸ™‚

Isn’t he charming and charismatic? Look at that pair of innocent eyes, filled with simplicity and pureness. He simply melts my heart! Ohhhhhhhh come here you! Hugssssssssss.

Today, I’m thankful once again, for an awesome day, and for a day filled with pleasant and beautiful events, especially with blessings from ah gong and ah ma. Thank you for another lovely, fruitful and beautiful day!

284 more days towards JYMDP, my journey towards happiness and freedom, and most importantly, to do well and make my family proud.
