Day 90 - complete!
Time to reflect! My 90 days complete! I made it. Wow, although I didn't keep track of my last 10days, it had help me realized that to reflect each day is important. My last day to treat myself was a day in Squamish. I decided to get away. Get out of the city. Get to explore a new town. Be a tourist. But ultimately, explore me! Really reflect on my feelings, my thought process, my love and passion in each way. I really love exploring new adventures. I realized wind… Continue

79 to 81 - slow & steady!
My time keeps tickin away! I haven't been stopping. So much I want to do but little time. Is it because I'm ready for love!!!! I've been on a few dates this week through online dating. The idea is great! Am I a fan of it, not ideally. But worth a try. How hard can it be!!?! Hahhaa really hard. So many men to look at...yet nothing seems to suit my needs! Oh needs! What are my needs? This is a big question. I sure got a lot done today, but I need me! I need me… Continue

Day 61 - nature is your friend!
I have forgotten what it feels like I be in nature. No people, just u & the forest or ocean. It is a sunny day do there are lots of people who are out. But finding the right spot where no other human being can bother you is amazing. You can hear birds chirping, wood pecker pecking, leaves blowing in the wind. What more can u ask for when a bird comes to u as close as 3 feet! Amazing!
Except the occasional speed boat going by, not so… Continue

Day 60 - one more month!
Wow my 90 day challenge is almost up! I have stuck with it, with a few bumps on the road as I haven't met my original goal, but it's ok. Slowly. I'm taking my time and allowing myself to make mistakes along the way. I've come to a point in my life to let go of fear, let go of anger, let go of feeling unwanted. I need to allow myself to feel ok in my own skin! I'm still working on that. Today feels like one of those days. I sure don't feel good in my own skin!… Continue

Day 51 - when it hits u, it hits u!
So today started off amazing! Had a bit of time to connect w/ a friend & even got a card for my day! And it was a card that was telling me that my cycle is over & I'm on to a new one. But that really turned around when I started getting dizzy half way through the day. How come? How did that happen! How is it possible that my great day turned into a not so good day! I listened to my body, left work early and went home to relax. Is it… Continue

Day 40 & 41 - mindful weekend!
As my weekend unfolds to what was no weekend, I seem to find time to smile. It can be tough at times when one has to work through the weekend. But to be mindful and be in the present is one thing I'm working on. It was great to be present in what I did. Yes work can be challenging, but it can also be great fun. It was good to share it with me. :)
Smile and your… Continue

Each day seems a little harder. How come? Motivation is tough to handle. But I did it. Yoga today! I forgot how it felt after I finish. The push ups & sit-ups seems to have been put on hold. Haven't been feeling great so hope to get my motivation back...or lack of. Or just to go through the emotions of feeling.

Wow, do hormones take the best of u some days! Today was a day for me! I had a good morning & then headaches linger. After that, cramps hit me hard. But also getting notice from my doctor that my cyst were gone one one side & getting smaller on another, I kind of an in shock. I don't know how to feel about that. I know u for have cancer but it's hard to hear that I had 2 cyst, one on each side of my ovaries. No wonder of some of the pain I get. But I guess not major pain. I have low… Continue

Day 32 - road trip
Road trip weekend to Merritt BC for a volleyball tournament. I'm excited to play with fun girls & to hang out w/ my sister. It's been awhile since we had some sister bonding time. I pondered on what it would look like for the weekend. But the day was quite long w/ not getting a lot of sleep & needing to drink water for an appointment in the morning. We weren't leaving town until the afternoon but I had many little things to do before we left. I felt like I was… Continue

Amazing. It's been a month. I know a month goes by each year as we are on a 12 month cycle, but it's not the same when you track your thoughts, your every move with a commitment to yourself & writing about it to who knows who is going to read my thoughts. It's all about me! What a break through. :) it feels good. I know in the past, I would try to set a 30 day goal or even 10 days and i would give up after 2 or 3! Is it because I don't have will power, or is it because I wasn't truly honest… Continue

My last day in nature and I'm back in the city! It was a great long weekend while it lasted. I got time to relax, have fun & learn more about me. I learned what I want & what I don't want. It's been a great to be able to learn this being by my best friend. It's not easy these days to find a friend that values the same things & enjoy the little things in life.
Even with being back in the city, there is a lot of anxiety around. So many people are under stress with so… Continue

Day 27 - Dream Free
Have u ever sat down & write down dreams! No, I don't mean day dream because everyone does that. I mean actually sit down, perhaps at a coffee shop & write down your dreams! Well, that's what I did today. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. I really tried to be realistic to dream but that's not what I wanted to do. I wanted to dream big. I wanted to be unbias or no judgement. We as humans judge ourselves so much that it doesn't allow us to really think… Continue

Day 23 & 24 - auto pilot
Do u ever wonder how your brain works or why you do the things you do? Do you ever feel like your mind is not in your brain or you wonder where is your soul? Or am I the only one? Or perhaps I'm not present. I think that's what it is. I'm so not present. I'm on auto pilot. Do u know what that feels like! I feel like a zombie! It's kind of scary because u loose focus on the now. It's weird. Day 23 was a blur! My day 24 is catching myself in that blur...how do I… Continue

Last night, i didn't know what to write about. I think i hesitated to write. Or was I scared to write. Neither. I didn't know what to write because I didn't know how to feel. It was one of those days that I didn't know how to name it. I didn't know if I was tired, sad, mad, happy, content...I wasn't sure. I couldn't really pin point it. I was excited for the morning to go on another adventure, but it just didn't feel the same. I had a day off and i had little things here and there, but it… Continue

Family from Seattle, Hong Kong & Chicago came to visit. New found family with the Canadian culture, there is no blood relation. But in the Chinese culture, I'm a bui bui goo ma! Which means I'm old. Goo ma is like grandparents sister. Bui is like 1st or 2nd generation or basically, cousin. It feels nice to be a goo ma because in another couple generations, there won't be this relation because not many people are having kids. Chinese families are huge when there are grand children or cousins… Continue

Tight hamstrings! Tight quads! Tight IT band! Results=knee does not function. Ouch! But with my massage therapist, the muscles hope to work again. It was scary to not have a knee work. I can walk, I can drive, but I couldn't jump. Not fun. So my workout today is to clean the house! I already worked out! My massage theapist did it for me! Hahaha. Am I cheating? No way. I'm listening to my body. Pain, please go away. Calm shell exercises all the way.

I cheated today. Had sugar! Had gluten. Had eaten late. :( so sad.
But I'm ok with it. I know I need one if these days. Going for a 100 days is challenging. I realize that I know I will fail, but to not beat myself up about it is a step forward. In the past, I would screw it. I can't do it and go back to my old habits. I know it takes about a month to break old habits. 100 days may seem a lot but I know it will be over in no time.
With my knee not well, I'm taking it easy. I can still… Continue

It was a quite day today with my event over. Now on to the next. One and a time. No rush. In due time, it will all work itself out. I'm not worried. :)
I'm content. I feel great to be able to take it easy. My knee is recovering and…
