Thanks for making me laugh!
I NEVER BRUSH MY HAIR.
Granted I don’t have treated hair so it’s healthy as
But still, NEVER EVER brushing hair? That kind of sounds ridiculous.
Everyone loves my mane and wants to know what I use and blah blah blah, what treatment, what products.
I say, NOTHING.
Most of the time I’m showering after I do Jim at Equinox and they offer Kiehl’s products but when I’m at home I use Matrix.
I buy these because they last forever and I have a pump to screw on.
The best shampoo and conditioner I’ve ever used.
Sunday was a tiring day…
So much that I had to order my usual crack…
Can you figure out what I ordered? I added a syrup for some flavor and sweetness because I haven’t had this drink is so long that I didn’t want to have the bitter taste in my mouth. IDK how I used to drink it all the time without it.
The stairmaster was a bit easier that day…still not achieving my high calorie burn and level though.
Haven’t been #doingjim since September.
Luckily I’ve stayed thin.
Bear started a new job so now the plan is to go together… On the days I don’t have class that is.
I’m still trying to convince him to go in the am before work.
It felt great to be back. Couldn’t do my usual 1 hour stairmaster but I say 45 minutes is enough for the first day back!
I actually made a bet with Bear in the beginning of the year.
I bet him that I would go to the gym 280 days out of this year starting 1/6/14, ending 1/6/15.
Yesterday was my first day back.
I’m running out of days! 😩
We had dinner after at #Chynnadimsum…
I was sure I was going to be over 105 this am since I had a drink and had a full dinner. But nope! I was only 104 and it’s because I worked out!
The benefits of #doingjim, I can eat dinner and still weigh under 105 the next am!
Bear promised me that we would start working out again this week so I made him call Lifetime Fitness nearby for daily/weekly rates.
Guess what? Way more than Equinox.
$40/day!?!!? You gotta be kidding me.
If they saw how I looked and how I’ll make their gym look, they would give me free admission.
Also on the phone, people don’t like to give deals.
Luckily Bear’s parents have a treadmill and that’s all I really need.
I haven’t been to the gym since my last birthday. 9/6.
It’s been too long!
So I made it a point to make sure that I start the ‘Doing Jim’ here so when I get back, I won’t want to lose the momentum.
And also because I knew I would be eating a ton of food here.
We had sushi for lunch, got some gifts,
ran errands got alcohol, came back and lounged.
After watching one episode of Suits (by the way, my new favorite show!) with Bear, I got into my Lulu and do my cardio for one hour.
Remember you don’t have to run to burn fat.
Just be at 15 (minimum) incline at about 3.0-3.5. Do for more than 30-40 minutes.
I use wrist weights so that helps I get the extra fat burning process going.
Oh and don’t forget your most important thing, iPad!
I would never be able to do an hour without visual entertainment.
And I don’t mean snow. Just kidding.
I mean it literally.
I am so excited to be in Kansas right now.
I wanted to make snow angels as soon as we arrived at his parent’s home but he advised not to.
Something about this place makes me feel so comfortable and relaxed.
I’m excited to experience Christmas like all the Americans do in the the U.S.
We dropped off Maximus at some service and got dropped off in a black car…
The check in line was crazy on Southwest, but luckily, the security line wasn’t. It’s unfortunate that we had a connecting flight.
I don’t have proof but I weighed 107 this am…
Let’s see what I’ll be end of weekend.
I’m actually really scared.
One whole week in Kansas.
I brought my Jim clothes again this time, let’s see if I actually get to the gym.
OH, and this time, I brought my stash too!
Now that I’m newly engaged, I wear my ring everywhere. Why shouldn’t I? It’s gorgeous.
I haven’t been doing Jim the past several months (I know, I’ve fallen off the wagon) and now that I’m thinking about going back, this question came to mind… Do I workout with my ring on?
When I was engaged the first time, I didn’t work out, nor did I do anything strenuous where I had to think twice about keeping it on or off. Heck, I didn’t even do the dishes.
I have friends who are are married and most wear their ring to work out, but most only do cardio.
What is a girl to do? I like to lift weights wearing gloves of course and do push ups and other stuff that require using my hands. I know platinum is pretty durable, but enough to withstand metal? Especially since the diamonds go almost all the way around?
I know there are some people who wear their jewelry when they work out. Bracelets, earrings, necklaces, watches and such. As for me, I only wear my necklaces. Not because I’m showing off, but because I’m lazy and I never take my necklaces off.
There are also those who wear their ring because they don’t want to get hit on guys at the gym. As for me, I’m fortunate in a way that I look so mean and intense, no one wants to talk to me. I do my thing and mind my own business.
So what is the protocol for wearing an engagement ring to doing Jim? Why do you or not? Honestly, I think it would be uncomfortable wearing it. Almost as uncomfortable as sleeping with a thong on.
I got a new batch of sox, apparently better than the last but I think it was always great!

Sunday, September 15 8am-8pm (Inventory dependent)
The celebration is happening all weekend long at:
The long weekend started with empty days except for one commitment. Dodgers game on Sunday.
I initially bought the tickets for Bear, his brother (who would’ve been in town), Tyler and myself.
Bear’s brother, unfortunately didn’t come into town and Tyler ended up going on a road trip.
Saturday we woke up really late. Actually, really early but fell back asleep after breakfast and woke up again at 2:15pm.
Half our day was almost gone so we decided to go to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Museum. Bear’s father had mentioned how beautiful it was and how we should visit since it was fairly close to us.
Knowing it closed at 5, we headed over to Simi Valley. We knew we wouldn’t need more than 2 hours at the location.
Luckily we got there and it was great timing. People had parked all along the pathway and walked uphill because there were no parking spaces available.
We were able to park close to the entrance and amazingly beat the rush!
There were so many interesting things to looks at. Love letters to his wife, the suit he got shot in (but didn’t die), and of course Air Force One!
We got to walk through it but of course no pictures.
There was also an Abraham Lincoln exhibit, tiny but fascinating.
We grabbed lunch in KTOWN at 어원 and ice cream at McDonald’s.
Bear had to work so I decided to go to to Catalina’s home to spend a quiet night in.
The next day we went to Do Jim in Pasadena and I headed back to Hollywood to go to the Dodger’s game.
OMG! What was I thinking! Getting tickets to a 1:15pm game when it’s even super hot and disgusting!
The section had no shade and I was drenched in sweat!
J & t joined us for the game and we went to HH at EMC after.
Look at all the goodies we ate!
We stopped by McDonald’s again for ice cream.
I ended up falling asleep as soon as we got home, at 8pm.
The next morning, we woke up and got breakfast in Pasadena. The infamous breakfast burrito from Lucky Boy’s!
Bear dropped me off to do Jim and he went to the range.
Thank you to my hubby who lives in an apartment with an amazing pool, we were able to get some sun!
After several hours, we headed back home and made one pit stop at FatBurger.
It was an eventful and glutinous weekend!
I don’t post everyday like I used to but I still weigh myself at least three times a day.
I’ve been bad lately. Did Jim twice in the last three weeks.
Something about being skinny keeps me unmotivated.
I was recently told a little secret and I’m about to kick myself into gear.
Starting today I’m back on my 5-6 times a week schedule.
I will weigh myself every week. Same time same day. I can’t promise my diet will be cleaner but my workouts will be different.
I was told I would see a difference in my body in 4-6 weeks.
Lets see what it’s all about!
Morning drive to Robeks for our breakfast.
He got the piña colada and I got the carrot juice.
Today is also our one year anniversary. So we woke up and exchanged gifts.
I still have a hard time opening gifts in front of him.
He then went to work and I went to Equinox in Beverly Hills. A very nice facility.
A quick sesh before our lunch date at Mr. Chow. Luckily it’s DineLA, so we had a cheap meal.
For food porn go to PigletVentures!
Gotta do what I gotta do.
Eating without thought so I HAVE TO work out!
I woke up, took Uber to Equinox in the financial district. Worked out for an hour. It felt amazing!
Then Bear picked me up!
We had delayed flights, delayed takeoff, long lines at rental and a bit of traffic but we finally arrived in SF. We were suppose to have arrived at 10am on our flight but by the time we landed it was 1230. And we were driving out of the airport after getting the rental at 2.
We stopped by San Mateo Equinox for business and because of the delay I didn’t get to work out. But I showered while Beat did his thing.
Ten we headed to the hotel. He took a nap of course and I watched Shallow Hal on tv.
We had plans to meet his sister so we waited til she got off work.
We grabbed a cab and headed to her place not too far from the hotel.
Quick drinks and appetizers at her place and walked over for dinner and drinks.
Food porn go to PigletVentures
We came to a cute little place that was named after me!
After drinks, we headed to an Italian place for dinner and more drinks.
SF crowd is different but interesting. Definitely a young crowd but no real attractive people. Just run of the mill.
They were all staring at me, guess they haven’t seen an Asian girl hanging out with two white people ever. You know, usually Asians stick together.
After dinner we came back and his sister made cookies and showed us her collection of PB!
And she made a homemade blueberry crumb pie just for us to have the next day when we wake up in our hotel. :). What a sweetheart!
That’s on PigletVentures too.
We took Uber home after!
