FLY PROJECT: On Consistency & Game Plan


On my 9th week (On my third pilates class), my trainer and I had a thorough chat about goals and timelines. We agreed to set clear intentions on why we’re doing what we’re doing. Again, Pilates is a mind and body movement; it goes beyond just lengthening and stretching, it also practices so much mind work and alignments. While he was guiding me through my practice, he told me to keep…

FLY PROJECT: On Sleep and Caffein Punch.


I have a confession to make, I haven’t been sleeping according to schedule. Crawling to bed was the easiest part however snoozing my way to dreamland is a different story. No, I don’t think it’s the sandman’s fault nor the flock of sheep; it’s probably been the adjustment of my work-at-home schedule. Truthful to my capabilities, compartmentalizing and zooming in to what matters. I left the employment world once again for academe.…

FLY Project: Monsoon is in!


It’s going to take awhile for me to get back to the distance I’m aiming and training for knowing my body is still adjusting and re-adjusting but with determination and persuasion, everything or anything is doable! The summer finally gave it’s final push, our tropical country has welcomed the monsoon season. On my 7th week, I worked on running intervals. I’ve progressed from jogging an entire 3km.

FLY Project: Recuperating, re-introducing and reduction.


On my Fifth week. The days were filled with catching up on school load – an exchange of thoughts online, spending more time with my eBook reader and not having to log mileage as I was trying to recuperate from a bad flu. My nose had most of the workout, and days well spent on over-longed savasana. As much as possible, I didn’t want to self-medicate and pop on any manufactured medicines.…

A Dreamer: Pursuing Education


Remembering conversations with the first boss I had when I migrated in the U.S. in 2007. He narrated how he claimed his dreams, on becoming the General Manager of the BEST resort in the world.  He didn’t finish high school nor did he graduate from an Ivy league University but with perseverance and willingness to learn, he wanted me to put into heart to cherish every challenge, fail forward, calculate…

Fortunately, the study also showed that autistic children were just as physically capable as…

FLY Project: On Habits and Schedules


Charles C. Noble once said “First we make our habits, then our habits makes us” It sounds simple but having to do one thing and another does require effort and mindfulness. Finding a game plan and executing can be a trial and error process however once you’ve found the equation, everything else would seem to naturally move in autopilot. Before I started lacing my rubbers on and head out for…
