Through the path of life every day isn’t going to feel (or look) like progression. Life is full of setbacks and speed bumps. Some bigger than others. It’s important to keep moving forward and know that it will get better.
I’ve been through worse. In a matter of months I’ll be back to my normal self and then I can continue to focus on improving from there.
I’ll keep you guys updated with my rebound. Every day I’m feeling better and stronger. Muscle memory is an incredible thing. When your body is used to being a certain size, it tries to resume its normal state at a very fast rate. I left the hospital a week and half ago at 185 lbs and I’m back up to 205 lbs without much effort. My normal off season weight is around 240 lbs so i have a ways to go but I’m not rushing it. I’m taking things day by day, listening to my body and letting it heal. #onwardsandupwards#illbeback#recovery#daybyday
Started my “Grateful List” for 2018. It’s nowhere near complete, but already I have found myself smiling over the memories from January till now. Not every memory has brought joy; but even the painful ones have brought valuable lessons and knowledge of my own strength. Above all, I learnt this year, to rely on God and the love of friends and family in moments of self-doubt. 2019 will be the year of change for me...I will kiss 2018 with much affection and some nostalgia, and embrace her successor with renewed spirits. 🙏🏻🌷🦄. . . And this concludes my annual ‘Personal Reflection Retreat’, in a beautiful villa surrounded by birdsong. Another thing to be grateful for. . . . 🍀Rest. Reconnect. Refocus. Rise. 🍀. . . . Bring it on, 2019. I am ready for you. 😬 . . . #grateful#reflectionretreat#capella#personalretreat#2018reflection#2019planning#lookingforward#pressingon#onwardsandupwards#bringiton2019#2019iamreadyforyou#restreconnectrefocusrise
There's No Better Feeling than Getting Up Nice & Early especially on A Sunday Morning - Coz You are Getting up not because of Compulsion but Because You Feel there's So Much Living to Do in This Beautiful World & Can't waste this Opportunity by Sleeping more than Necessary :) :D <3
p.s. - As Long As my Body & Fitness (Physical & Mental) permits , I would Love to Continue my 5 and a half hour Quality Sleep Pattern - There's So Much to Explore , So Much to Do & A Whole lot of Mistakes to Make so that I Can Learn from them in the Long Run .........
Ironically , though the First Song I listen to on My Portable Speakers after Getting Up is : - "Kyun Main Jagoon ? " ("Why do I Wake Up ? " ) by Shafqat Amanat Ali from the Movie Patiala House !! & Follow it Up by A Whole Set of @atif.aslam songs starting off with #aadat , #wohlamhe (rock version) , #tehzeeb (good manners) and #yakeen :) <3 <3 <3 (Ending with "Ehsaas" and "Wo Lamhe" (Bollywood Version) ) - Capping Off my Daily Morning Routine with Green Tea , Almonds , Walnuts , Banana and A Cup Full of Positivity :) :) :) #happysunday :D
#riseandshine :) #livewithpassion !!!
#respect :) #loveandcare <3
Seven years of late nights, shitty customers and a whole lot of black clothing.
Today I worked my (hopefully) final hospo shift.
It's weird to think that this part of my life is over because as much as it sucked, I met some really amazing people and still had some great nights because of them.
That I'll miss.
But right now, I'm looking forward to taking a long and much needed rest.
Arrivederci Speedy Romeo, best of luck.
#LakerTakeover that’s a wrap for my college career and living in what has become one of my favorite places. I’d like to thank my mom and dad and every single person who has supported me on this journey. #onwardsandupwards#iloveyouoz
Powerlifting King and Queen 2018
Great day of lifting with lots to learn. Thanks for the coaching and support @martinwilliammarshall - will try and put more trust in your process as you’re the real MVP. Whoever knows me knows that I have been and will be continually re-watching my lifts from today to evaluate what went well and what to improve on for next time. #OnwardsAndUpwards 💪🏾 P.S Yes I stood on my tiptoes to take this picture 😂
Awesome work J-Mitch!
We hope you got that good night sleep you were looking forward to and a good feed after the fight.

I DID IT!!! I am officially a REIKI MASTER! 📜🤩🙌🏽🎉⁉️
WOW! I’m so speechless! The feeling of achieving another goal you’ve had set for yourself is such a splendid and magical feeling! 🤗
I can not THANK YOU ENOUGH @sunkentreasures_swfl for this amazing opportunity to be able to achieve another goal of mine. @_holly__ann_ , @_corrrrine_ & @courtneynfp , you girls have been an amazing support system and I wouldn’t be where I am at today without you three! You all have helped me truly find myself, and see that I can help spread love and light all around the universe. You girls mean so much to me! Thank you, thank you THANK YOU! 💖
I would always like to thank the Reiki Master Teacher herself, Grandma Joan! You have inspired me to begin this new chapter in my journey and I wouldn’t be where I am today without you! 💗
Reminder: ALWAYS chase your dreams! You can do whatever you put your mind to, and don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise! There may be times in life where you feel like life is throwing every possible curveball at you, but don’t ever give up! Hard work will always pay off! Just put your mind to it! 💯👌🏽
I would say I’m starting off my 27th year on this universe just right! I can’t wait for what 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣ has in store! Lots of love and light to be spread all around! 🎊💕✨
