With the amazing @acrojames
How do you feel when you finally get to learn new tricks and get some lessons real time from someone you’ve been following for quite a while in this virtual instagram world?
Quite awesome ☺️😁 it’s not always you get to feel that quite honestly.
Have you seen his crazy picture where he’s casually sitting sipping a cup of coffee with one hand and doing a hand to hand with a partner with the other hand?🤪
That’s an insane picture. I think that was how I started following him. Can you all tell how excited I am for the weekend 😂🤣 haha
Thank you so much for teaching us new moves and tricks at the jam today.
Anyone in hk or hongkongers keen on getting some lessons from the amazing James, head to Trybe this weekend or check their website to sign up for a three day workshop event this fri sat and Sunday.
This will be officially my second workshop so I’m quite excited about it and I think I have improved a little on a personal note since the last time I attended Frank’s workshop strength wise so I’m hoping I get to try and learn some more new things.
Thanks everyone who showed up for the jam today!
I’ve added the Facebook event link if anyone is keen on signing up for the event
Can you all tell I’m a wannabe athlete? 🤣 just starting on this journey 🙂😎
Do you often get nasty comments and stupid and discouraging unwanted remarks from people all the time? 🙂 I do.
Not always advisable to give it back but I also follow that policy when needed.
For me, this video is progress however small that may seem to you however small it is in reality. From nothing to something isn’t that progress? And why! We should celebrate progress however small.
You may be all strong and may have been working out🏋🏻♂️most of your life. That doesn’t necessarily allow you to make stupid remarks on someone else’s progress.
You also started out somewhere.
I put up a video of me showing my back muscle movement (haven’t trained them all my life dude!) with a caption “do I see something?” To which someone said no I don’t see anything.
Wasn’t a joke but I immediately replied back saying “and who asked you?”🤣 I’ve been at the receiving end of such comments and remarks throughout all my past 10 months of yoga journey and different fitness forms I took up after that and the world doenst cease to surprise me.
There are still assholes always trying to put you down telling you things like “you’re just lazy” “you can’t even do that” and shit.
Because hey I’m not lazy! Maybe you are! Cause your progress is comparatively too slow. You see you are always taunted made fun of irrespective of what you do. 😁
But I say keep pushing forward there’s nothing more sexy nothing more beautiful and rewarding than a body that talks and shows the results than a mouth that just blabbers. Well it may take 5 years for me to see muscles on my arms or a well toned body but I’m willing to be patient and put in the work needed. :) Never take away someone’s progress however small. Celebrate it anyway :)
That’s my last set of 5sets of 20 reps of 12 lbs dumbell shoulder press and 5lbs dumbell fly 😂 did a superset that morning :)
Oh I’m still learning fitness and form gurus and fanatics before you put me under a knife 🤣
Am I missing this Hooman today?
Think so 😁
I know you stalk me sometimes (she isn’t on Instagram or Facebook or anywhere else 😐) so if you see this ❤️ I’ll get back to bitching about life soon 😅
Wonder when we will get time to explore a new place together 🤔😕
Andaman was ages ago😢
She speaks so fast sometimes I can’t understand what she says. When she hates me and is pissed with me she won’t even reply to my msgs. I always tell her everything irrespective of whether she wants to hear it or not. The last date I went to, the last crush I had on someone the last time someone actually said something nice to me 🤪 the whys the how’s the. Frustrations the happiness and details that people can’t even imagine 😝my fitness progress my fucked up life updates or travel bucketlist (we talk less now about this come to think of it cause our jobs aren’t quite allowing us to travel or to be more precise my balance in my bank😜) and she sometimes doesn’t respond to my over enthusiastic msgs about anyone new in my life 😂😅 and I still leave her all my msgs. She sometimes replies after a decade but we get back to where we were😅
She sends me hateful msgs and calls me miss apongbi (proud girl) when I sometimes read her msgs but don’t quite reply because I’m running or practising acroyoga.
Sometimes all she asks is “who are you flying on now? “ whatever that means 😅😅🤣 Ahh now you know that if you’re reading this, I actually miss you and our healthy innovative dishes that we come up with or rather you. And the pork that your mom or bro sometimes cooks for me when I’m home.
Throwing it back to this day when she took me for a drive around loktak lake nodding to all my demands of taking yoga pictures around the lake and soaking in the hot afternoon 🌞 and my mala yungbing picture demands. (I can be quite demanding sometimes) and the day when we ate lunch meant for 4 people 😅 after all the craziness.
The past few days have not been easy. And well I’m not exactly sure why. There are tons of things in my head most of them are questions that I ask myself and to which I have no answer “how long?” Why? Where? When? And I had just been blaming my pms and post mentrual syndrome if there ever is a thing like that. But maybe it has to do with things more than just that. Most of the times I feel like “i have no reason but I feel so shitty” is this even normal? Most of these days I’ve been quite anxious during afternoons and once I go do things I love and enjoy doing, I know that I’m fine. But it’s been a struggle. I don’t know if anyone else goes through such things. I’ve been reading some books and been going through stuffs on good reads and well maybe that’s why I’ve been posting some of these stuffs so here goes another one. And well life isn’t all that rosy as you see on instagram 🙂
I’m sure we all have struggles. And I do resort to something like this at such times 😄
It’s what I’ve been telling myself -
Breathe. It’s okay. You’re going to be okay. Just breathe. Breathe, and remind yourself of all the times in the past you felt this scared. All of the times you felt this anxious and this overwhelmed. All of the times you felt this level of pain. And remind yourself how each time, you made it through. Life has thrown so much at you, and despite how difficult things have been, you’ve survived. Breathe and trust that you can survive this too. Trust that this struggle is part of the process. And trust that as long as you don’t give up and keep pushing forward, no matter how hopeless things seem, you will make it.” - Daniell Koepke.
I read this today and I had to share this.
Just what I needed.
You meet so many people in your life and maybe you wonder “why?” Go on read this
Go easy on yourself. I need to tell this to myself most days :) It's easy to feel uncared for when people aren't able to communicate and connect with you in the way you need. And it's so hard not to internalize that silence as a reflection on your own worth. But the truth is that the way people operate is not about you. Most people are so caught up in their own responsibilities, struggles, and anxiety that the thought of asking someone else how they're doing doesn't even cross their mind. They aren't inherently bad or uncaring--they're just busy and self-focused. And that's okay. It's not evidence of some fundamental failing on your part. It doesn't make you unloveable or invisible. It just means that those people aren't very good at looking beyond their own world. But the fact that you are--that despite the darkened you feel, you have the ability to share you love and light with others--is a strength. Your work isn't to change who you are; it's to find people who are able to give you the connection you need. Because despite what you feel, you are not too much. You are not too sensitive or too needy. You are thoughtful and empathetic. You are compassionate and kind. And with or without anyone's acknowledgement or affection, you are enough. - Daniell Koepke .
That’s uhh happy me ☺️😁🌚
I’ll post more from today maybe because I liked my hair today and well I took 20 mins to plait that in the morning so I had to take them pictures 😆 Because i don’t waste time doing that 😂
No I wasn’t just posing with those dumbells I actually had a satisfying workout 🏋🏽♀️🧘🏻♀️🤸🏻♀️session in the morning today &hell yes it burned. And well you all do know I do like taking pictures 🤣🤣 so took some selfies today yeah those were selfies rather self timed pictures cause there was no one early morning at the gym 😁🌚😆
Anyway, I’m done posting pretty pics. I mean ofcourse I’ll post them too when I have pretty pics but I also want to start posting more of what I enjoy now instead of just maybe staged photos. Could be also because I’ve changed in the last few months my priorities have changed I’m not travelling as I used to before &I don’t intend to as long as I don’t have time &as long as I’m happy working on things I love.
I started going to the gym one month &half ago maybe &I’ve been loving every bit of it.
More so because I’m not doing any more of those workouts I used to do on my own. I’m now focussing more on what I’ve always neglected &hopefully will build up a little too (that change I want to see in myself)
There is nothing that makes me happier now than sweating it out &doing strength training. Sure I enjoy running I love yoga acroyoga but I also need strength to build up for all those things I can’t do. I’d love to run more often &maybe prep for a marathon but atm I’ve decided to cut down on running& focus more on building up a little. I know I’m still at zero and have a long way to go but I’m enjoying every bit of this new me.
Can’t believe I was such a sloth last year :)😂 I’m still so weak but you always start somewhere & I’m getting stronger day by day &i know it’s gonna take a long time before I see any major change but I’m willing to put in the effort & time &be patient to see that change :) To the new me :) #happiness#sweatitout#fitgirls#fitnessmotivation#fitspo#yogaeverydamnday#yogagirl#runnersofinstagram#girlswholift#strongwomen#getstronger#calisthenics#streetworkout#thingsilove#gymsesh#gymmotivation
My first low bird as a base
I know she’s light which is why I tried with her first but that’s how you learn slowly :) Thanks Saffron :) Well her legs are not on my knees in the second picture. It just looks like it 😆
I asked her if she was scared of letting go of her hands and if she wanted to try full bird and she did
Maybe I’ll do it better the next time
I’ve always neglected working on my arms and shoulders and now I’m actually putting an effort to change that so hopefully I can do more of this in the future hehe😁
Should get stronger first
