Ladies 'Lush' Night
It is no fun waking up with a terrible hangover from too much wine drinking last night. Wine hangovers are no fun! However, do I regret it? Absolutely, not. Inessa arranged a ladies night at her place while her fiance left with his guys to celebrate his bachelorhood. Not all of her girlfriends were able to join in on the soiree. Although, we all still had a ball with lots of hors...
Wait...how much? DEAL!
This morning, I had another great workout. Since I came in a little late (7:30am), and my PT had a 9am appt, we squeezed in a 2 hour training into 1 1/2 hours. That means I had no breaks and it was fast. ”Oh. Wow,” is all I can describe this morning’s workout. We first started off with an obstacle course: run & jump, bear crawl, squats,...
A "Pet" Stop & Persian Nomz
Saturday was such a busy day for me. I spent a couple hours in the gym to burn off the extra calories I consumed Friday night in Huntington Beach…and then some. Oh! While I was warming up on this amazing “Steps” machine, this crazy old Cambodian man (possibly in his late 50s) did 20 one arm pushups really fast! Crazy thing is…he was just warming up. He brought a smile to my...
A Heartwarming Voicemail
After a long and exhausting day sanding my dresser yesterday, I received a voicemail from none other than my ex-boyfriend’s mom, Carol. In case you don’t remember, two Sundays ago, I called Carol to greet her a happy belated birthday; and of course, to see how she’s doing. I also mentioned about my “thank you” cards I’ve written for her and her husband, her...
My DIY project
It’s been two months since I’ve moved back to CA, and I still don’t have a dresser. A few weeks ago, I noticed an ugly 5-drawer dresser in our backyard. It’s apparent no one wants it. So, I’ve decided to claim that junk my treasure. Today, with my dad’s sander, a few sandpaper, and some gloves I went to work. It was actually quite enjoyable. Although, I...
Second Month of Fitness Training
My, oh my, am I tired! I go to the gym every morning at 7am and I’m out within 2 hours (balance, coordination, & body weight exercises). It always feels great getting my balance and muscles stronger, but today was my toughest! My PT noticed some great improvements in my training. My balance is so much better and I’m getting stronger…so what did he decide to do?...
Weight Gain: Muscle or Fat?
I’ve gained 2 pounds since I started working out. Is it muscle or is it fat? If it’s fat then that’s a problem. It’s a problem for me because I’m trying to slim down! I’m doing fine working out, but I REALLY need to work on my sugar and salt intake…like by 95%! That’s my problem…eating sweets and the hearty homemade lunch/dinner my stepmother makes. It’s...
Oh my…it’s so much harder going to the gym in the afternoon than it is early in the morning! Grr…please don’t be lazy. I have my gym clothes on and all I have to do is start walking to my car, start the ignition, drive, and pump iron! Must. pump. iron. D:
