Netflix & Hulu+

Did my first workout for the month. Maybe I’ll put it up here one day? I feel accomplished afterward so that’s good. I’m trying this whole documenting thing. Yah know … a little workout notebook. Hopefully that works out as well. I tend to stop documenting after a few times. Fracture doesn’t hurt much right now. Ask me again tomorrow. I think it’ll be okay … eek. It’d be nice to look like Beyonce. Not going to lie. I’ll check her out if she was right in front of me. She’s got a good bod. Jealous! But she works SUPER hard for it. Channel Beyonce.

I am like that baby throwing a fit. I’ve finished Gossip Girl … except for Season 6 since it’s not on Netflix. Wahh. Does anyone know where I can watch it? Is it only on Hulu+? I’m thinking about getting that. Everyone sleeps with everyone on that show. And backstab each other every chance they get … yet they stay best friends. Only in shows. But I love it.

I’ve started on Felicity now. Old ass show … but I always loved the main three characters and was too young to watch it fully. Felicity uses a tape recorder recording her words to her friend that lives far away. TAPE. RECORDER. And they talk about beepers. WOW! Brings back memories. Time does fly. Love that most of them still act.

What do you think about Hulu+?

Any recommendations on Netflix?

Just A Little Update

Hi Doodies.

I’ve realized I’ve been M.I.A. What’s been going on? Absolutely nothing. NOTHING. Ever since the busy last few weeks I finally got a chance to just relax … and watch Gossip Girl. So here are some updates.

As of last week, my foot’s been doing better. I picked a 12 week workout to start on June 1st. Problem? We sold our bench on Sunday so now I have to find a new workout or revise the workout that is already set up. Blimey.

Work’s been going crazy. People not fully doing their part. People stepping on others to get to the top. People talking shiet even if it’s not about me. I can’t deal with it. It takes too much out of me. Stress-freaking-ful.

IMG_20130527_130021

Sissy & BIL are moved back into the house for the time being. Travel nursing starts soon for them. Until then, I enjoy having Bruno around … and I guess those two other fools.

IMG_20130528_203601

Brother let me keep Pluto for the time being. I’m suppose to give him back soon but you know … I kinda like his company. Sorry, B. I have no clue when I’ll be visiting to bring him back to you … because I don’t want to.

Tomorrow night is Wade Bowen with zee friends. Can’t wait to see them. It’s been two week!! Ahhhhh!

Happy Thursday, y’all!

[2013] 019/365: Best Probably Unhealthy Snack Ever

PicsArt_1362540709990 (1)

I had a Hong Kong snack day at work today. The best memories ever. I’m not sure how healthy it is for you … but who cares. The seaweed isn’t like the ones from sushi. It’s much crispier. So much yummier.

We use to drink this Lemon Tea when we were little kiddos back in Hong Kong. When we moved to America, we were so happy that they sold it here. We rarely bought it because it’s not that great for you but the times that I do … oh my. I only like Lemon Tea from Hong Kong. The way they make it here just isn’t right.

The seaweed on the other hand was introduced to me by Rachel this past summer. I was a little hesitant to try it but once I did I knew I was hooked. If you have this selling anywhere near you, you need to try it pronto.

I just want to go back to Hong Kong. Who’s down to go with me?

PicMonkey Collage

My after workout face. Haven’t taken a selfie in a while. Hair is ratchet. I hate that word but it’s true. I’m wearing my Ellie top if you can’t tell. 😉

Below was my dinner. I love this soup. I made it all throughout college. Water, cabbage, tofu, and Chinese meatballs (or just plain chicken breasts). I got Jenny making it to when we lived together. Oh college. Seemed like years ago.

Workouts have been going well. Come on perfect bod! haha jk.

Hump day tomorrow. FINALLY!

[2013] 009/365: She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy

Okay, so I didn’t take this picture. Obviously.

But do you see those tires? I moved two of those today.

I came home from work and saw my neighbor struggling carrying them off her truck. They’re from a farm and super old so she got two of them for free. She’s going to use them to plant things or make a sandbox or something. How cool, eh?

Anyway, those things are HEAVY and super muddy so I offered to help her out. For two hours we scrubbed them clean and moved them into her backyard. Then washed out her driveway of that leftover mud. Workout for the day: complete.

It was the first time I’ve ever met a neighbor. I just don’t go out enough to be able to do that. But it was nice talking to her. And her kiddos are so cute.

Random Act of Kindness. Accomplished. Did you do something for someone today without expecting anything in return?

In All Honesty

I went a little crazy yesterday and did 30DS Level 1 along with a 25 minute walk/run. Then because I didn’t feel anything, I did some planks. For some weird reason, I love planks. I’ve always told y’all how I dislike Jillian Michaels because she’s just SO annoying. And watching her on screen just makes me want to drop kick her. But her methods work. I’ve seen people’s results so I stopped complaining about having to see and listen to her and started doing.

Yeah, thankfully she didn’t look anything like that in the video.

Today I was hoping to feel a little burn and soreness but nope. Felt nothing still so I went and did the 30DS Level 1 and some planks. I feel the soreness a little but it’s so miniscule it’s pretty much nothing. Ask me again tomorrow. But seriously, what is going on? Who am I? I love it and hope it’s here to stay.

Maybe it’s because my body knows I’m going to San Antonio this weekend and I more then likely will skimp out on my workouts. I’m not being negative. I’m just being honest with myself … and to my readers. I know how I am when I’m not in the comfort of my own home – where I don’t know the paths for runs. So why play it up. Why lie? I more than likely won’t work out Thursday – Sunday. There I said. it.

Will I regret it? Yeah, I probably should because I’ll be eating out a whole lot and drinking here and there – alcohol or not. But in all honesty, no. Because I haven’t seen these people who I call my friends for a long while. Because I rarely go out anymore now that all I do is work and save up money. Because I need to have fun once in a while.

Happy Tuesday!

Eat Cake, Get Boy … Seriously

Working Out

One of the best feelings in the world? Starting a new workout plan. Let’s do this!

Lots of cardio and strength training!

I feel a little tired afterward but no soreness. Ask me again tomorrow.

Work

IMG_20120910_081324

Work is going well. On some days, I get coffee with the co-s. You can see Dopey in the background. He’s the only decoration I own in my office.

Since we’re on the work topic, we just found out our whole floor will be moving into a different building – not sure when exactly but sometime soon. EVERYONE will have cubicles except for the high high up. I heard these will be fancy cubes. Fingers crossed I get a window seat.

Maybe once we move I will buy some things and decorate my office. Anyone know where I can buy cheap, pretty things to do so?

YOLO? Dumbo.

I saw this on my Facebook feed and I shared it with practically everyone I saw today.

You already know what I’m going to say …

I Love Mail

Seriously loving opening the mailbox and seeing that something belongs to me. The same goes with email. They are so much better than a text or Facebook message. No doubt.

I would put up the picture of the Cosmopolitan and Women’s Health but I am too lazy to cross off my name/address. I’m sure you can picture magazines in your head.

IMG_20120910_164845

Plus, getting things like this is always nice. Alyssa & Greg’s thank you card from the wedding. I know it’s a must to write thank you cards but I never give to expect something in return … even if it’s just a thank you. Seriously, to me, I think them letting me be a part of their wedding is them giving me something. I got to be there for my best friend from high school. Someone I will always treasure in my heart. Thank you, Alyssa. And Greg, you got a good one. Treat her well.

Eat Cake … Get Boy

20120910_202445

I came home and the first thing Mum told me was “EAT CAKE … GET BOYFRIEND.” Really now?

Apparently if you eat this type of cake, you will get a boyfriend. If you already have a boyfriend, he will treat you so well. Same if you’re married.

In my head, I’m obviously saying … bullsh*t. But I eat it anyways. Can you guess what kind it is?

Red Velvet … with Cream Cheese Frosting. In other words, my workout done earlier was useless.

If this is true (which I doubt), I guess I rarely get boyfriends because I don’t really like eating sweets therefore pass up Red Velvet a lot. This will explain why some girls I know that love red velvet always has a new guy after breaking up with one two seconds before. And because I like baking goods, like Red Velvet, and give it away it’s like a metaphor … I give away the guy I like to the friend because I don’t like fighting.

So … guess that explains it.

Thanks Red Velvet … for solving this dilemma for me.

Time Flies

IMG_20120909_125704

Lately I’ve been cleaning my room. Well, sissy and I have and we found stacks of magazines. Some from the 1990s!

Remember the magazine from above? It’s from August 14, 2000. Time sure flies!

Guess Brad and Jennifer ate a lot of Red Velvet since the divorce … It’ll explain how they both got someone new …

*****************

Sissy and Bruno came home. Time to hang out with them a little before heading to bed.

TGTBLIG!

Goodbye San Antonio

San Antonio Part III

Yesterday was my last day in San Antonio which meant it was a sad, sad day.

*The first two pictures you see are from when I was running errands with him the day before and took them. They’re pretty.

IMG_20120629_234856

Made with pans … at the Culinary Institute!

I woke up early to pack up the rest of my things and then went to Patricia’s to drop off silverware that I would never need again. Said my last goodbye to her and then went to lunch with him and his friend. We spent a good 3 hours sitting there talking about the randomest things … those always makes the best conversations. A lot of times they talked about people I didn’t even know and I didn’t mind at all. Just listening to them talk was nice. We talked a lot about marketing, advertising, and computer stuff. And I loved every second of it.

IMG_20120629_235327

Some building … it looked like it was decorated with puffy paint. Happy colors.

After we departed, I went and packed the rest of my car. Turned my keys in. Hugged everyone, stared at the apartment complex, and drove away. I’m sad I’m not coming back in August, but I’m happy knowing that I will be back to visit and to see all these people again. I’m aiming for November since I have an excuse to go back: FTK’s Fashion Out Cancer Show. Smile Cannot wait to see what they come up with this year for that. So excited.

IMG_20120630_192105

“You brighten up the sky.
Like a rainbow after the storm.

The drove back to Houston was long though. Sleeping for a total of 3 hours those past two days didn’t help. But it felt nice coming back home and knowing that I won’t have to move again … for a while.

My twin bed is now filled with 7 pillows and three blankets. And even with this heat, it feels nice to be surrounded by softness. I cannot wait for a bigger bed though.

Liliana mailed me a belated birthday card. And it made me tear up.

2012-07-01 14.35.432012-07-01 14.36.49

“I wonder whether you know how the good things you do ripple out to make things nicer for other people. I wonder whether you realize you have a gift for listening with a gentle heart when someone needs to talk. And I wonder how you do it all, day in and day out, with such grace. It’s no wonder I love having you for a friend. Happy Birthday”

I hope that it’s true. That other people see me as that because that’s not a bad reputation. I should have studied to be a physiatrist or something. So I guess if you ever need someone to talk to, I’m a good one to chose from. My email’s always open …

Sadly I didn’t get to see her in San Antonio; she wasn’t in town. But I know for a fact I’ll see her in November when I go and I. Can. Not. Wait.

I already miss them all. Now I’m back to being by my lonely self.Crying face

Workout

45 min cardio

My plan has completed. I am so thankful for that because this 3 week plan was killer! Mostly on the legs.

I cannot wait for Hong Kong. That means a lot of cardio since you walk and sweat everywhere. That only means strength training at nights. Sounds good to me.

I’ll be taking a lot of pictures of my food because well … it’s Hong Kong. That’s pretty much all you do.

I Never Want To Leave

San Antonio Part II

If anyone was wondering … I haven’t seen him yet but hopefully I do before I leave and before he leaves out of the country for study abroad. I just want to give him his present. No big deal.

Jenny finally arrived … with Krypto and Pluto last night!! Ahhh … my heart skipped a beat. Love those two puppies (who aren’t puppies anymore).

IMG_20120628_202105

Then I went to Patricia and Shayna’s and we made dinner with Gary and his boyfriend Matthew! Getting to catch up with them is heaven. I’ve missed them. I also got to meet a guy named Chris tonight. Nice man. So far nothing bad to say about him. Guess my friend picked a good one! Love seeing happy people. Warms my heart.

Today I have great things going on and I cannot wait to start my day!

     – Tricep Extensions – 30 sec

I woke up at 9am … to work out. Who am I? What happened to the girl that worked out at night times? I think this is only temporary.

Not being able to go out and run is one of the hardest things here in San Antonio. Don’t get me wrong, I can. But it’s hard because you have to drive to a trail. Sorry, I’m not about to waste gas.

Just did my usual cardio of jumping jacks, run in place, etc. And then I just about died when arms, abs, and legs happened. Luckily it’s my last one for this plan. Hurray! So that kept me going. I feel it the worse in my legs. Bleugh!

After today, only one more workout and my plan is complete! And then it’s packing and off to Hong Kong! Eeep a dee doo da!

Funnies

Okay, I won’t keep you much longer. Here’s some things to look at while you wait patiently for work to end so you can go home!

Yes. Preach it sista. I understand if you want to show a little cleavage … but yeah. Seriously, stick them back in.

My people will never live this down. haha

Me to a tee. My uncle got me a Medium sized football jersey and I love it. But it fits my body but my boobage area. I have squashed boobs. Oh, hi uniboob …

With this heat we’re having in Texas, it’s necessary. Now I just need to find someone with a truck …

His hips don’t lie!

Happy Friday! Stay cool! Smile

I’m Back San Antonio!

Workout

Be proud of me. I woke up and immediately changed and worked out.

45 min cardio

For the first 15 minutes I had no energy and kept yelling at myself, “Why are you doing this now?”

Yep. I felt like a lazy lard until I picked up my pace and said it’s now or never.

After that 15 minutes I realized it’s not that bad at all.

I congratulate all of y’all that work out in the morning upon waking up.

San Antonio

Reason I worked out so early is because I needed to head to San Antonio. Last time for a while. Hoping I can come back here by September. It sucks how much I really miss these people when I’m back home.

Went to Aerie. Then went and saw Leah at Kona. Caught up and ate. Took a nap (because I’m getting old). And now I’m talking to Jared on Facebook. We have bad timing. Every time he’s free, I’m not and vice versa. He was wondering to hang out and obviously, I’m in San Antonio.

Cannot wait to see some lovelies tonight!! Going to seize the moment!

Question: Foam Roller or The Stick?

Catching Up Is Fun

I’ve been trying to get my workouts done earlier in the day so that I don’t dread it at night. Plus it gives me a surge of energy so hopefully this works out.

Like I said, doing them in seconds are harder than doing them in numbers. Sad smile The legs were the worst part.

Hopefully it gets easier by Friday when I repeat Monday’s workout. Here’s to hoping!

Catching Up

Whoo … this week has been catch up overload!

And I’m happy to say it will continue until Saturday. I cannot wait to see everyone in San Antonio! Hopefully I’ll get to see everyone. It’ll be hard since I’m only there for a couple days and there’s so many people I want to catch up with. Sad smile And hopefully I’ll get to see him, too. If not, I’ll be bummed.Annoyed But what can I do … anyway. Back on track.

Seeing Ed Monday night … great!

Seeing Michelle and Stephanie last night catching up on boys, work related things, and other fun stuff. We do movie nights once in a while and this time we watched 21 Jump Street. I’ve already seen it but I didn’t mind seeing it again. Love that movie. So freaking funny. If you haven’t seen it, go watch it!

And upon seeing them and getting back home, I get on Facebook (because my life revolves around social media … if you haven’t noticed) and I got an FB IM from Travis! Which ended up in us trying out the Facebook Video Chat for a little after an hour long. Miss talking to him. Face to face.

I love keeping in touch with people. But I must admit, I’m horrible at it when I’m away. I’m happy that there are still people that try to keep in touch with me. I hope it doesn’t change though. I’m trying hard to not pull away from people and keep the connection strong. So far, so good.

Do you tend to lose contact with your old friends? Do you seem to feel disconnected from them? Do you do something to fix it? If so, what do you do?
