CONNECT with MYSELF // Sweat Party

I have been frustrated with my progress lately. I am not seeing the results that I want. I know I should not give up but I can't help feeling a little bit discourage. I wanted to quit but I just can't. I am some what addicted to the adrenaline and the heart pumping activities. That is also one of the reason I went hiking. The feeling burning so many calories in a day is really addictive. 

Well I can't really go hiking every day or every week, so today I decided to host my own Sweat Party to at least simulate the feeling of heart pumping, the sweating and the feeling that I am going to die when hiking. 

Workout One

I started the party with Country Heat Bring in the Heat for about 28 minutes. This routine is so much fun that my brain did not registered it as working out. I still burned a good amount of calories - 120 of them.

Workout Two

After that I moved to Shaun T program which is T25 Beta Speed 2.0 for 25 minutes. I really really love this routine. This routine used to make me breathless not today. Today I really nailed it. My total calories burned increased to 290.

Workout Three

I did not stop there. I moved on to Master's Chisel Total Body. I missed doing weight lifting program with Autumn. I really need to buy a new set of dumbbells, 12 pounds is getting lighter for some of the moves. This workout lasted about 35 minutes and my total calories burned reached 438.

Workout Four

Then I decided to do Zumba Ripped. I have not done any Zumba workout in a while. It's always fun to do the workout with a great music. This one lasted me about 30 minutes and I burned a few calories to a total of 575.

Workout Five

Now it's time for some core workout. I always go back to (21 day fix extreme -) 10 minutes hardcore workout for my abs. I have been doing this workout this week and I am loving it. 
By the end of this 10 minutes I have burned about 640 calories.

I wanted to do more but the time is almost 12:00 pm and my baby boy is already hungry. So I have to take a break and feed him. Now my total calories burned has reached 1,551. Oooo I am so excited. I might continue with this party in the evening. If I can pushed myself to do at least two cardio workout I might pushed the calories burn to 2800. ( At least that's the goal I set for myself today )

I really have no idea if this will work or not but I sure do have fun doing it.

Day 55:365 // Powerless

It's finally Friday night. I am so looking forward to this night. The feeling that no work tomorrow and no punch card is the greatest feeling of all. I can basically do anything that I love and not worry too much about what I am going to wear tomorrow. Oooo that reminds me that I need to upgrade my outfit soon.
What did I do with all those so called free time? Well I watch Powerless on hulu. Surprisingly this show is way more fun than I expected. And I also love watching other people wear Apple watch.

Day 54:365 // #thursday3 [23.02.2017]

I am loving my Thursday so far.
Day 54-365

#thursday3 

1. - I've finished reading " Talking As Fast As I Can" by Lauren Graham in two days. I love her book so much. It's definitely different than reading " Scrappy Little Nobody" by Anna Kendrick

2.- I am suddenly in the mood for watching some old movies and old TV shows like Charmed, Twilight, Striking Distance, Untamed Heart and many more

3.- I am trying doing a journal using GoodNotes app. I am loving it so far and it's so much fun.

Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done." - rukristin.com

Day 52:365 // Look Up

I started reading this book yesterday and today I am almost finished. I have so much fun reading " Talking as fast as I can" by Lauren Graham. I love reading her words in the book, so down to earth, fun and heartwarming. I can totally relate to her - we both remember Happy Days, remember what it was like to grow up without internet and cellphone, remember what overshared means and remember what it feels like to write a letter to someone. When I read a chapter - A Note from Your Friend Old Lady Jackson - reflect exactly how I felt about young generation. Her letter My dearies really got me thinking about my life right now. I need to take a break from technology, learning to talk to people again, read a book not facebook status, write a proper sentence not emoji or short word that I don't even understand. 

I really really like this "If you never look out the window of a subway car, how will you see the boats gliding by on the East River, or have an idea that only you could have? Just look up for no reason, just for a moment here and there, or maybe for an entire day once in a while. Let the likes go unchecked and the quality of sleep go unnoticed. Que sera sera, my dears - whatever will be will be, whether we're tracking it on our GPS devices or not.
Look up! Look up! What you see might surprise you." excerpt form Talking As fast As I can book. Wow! These words really have impact on me. 

Just Look Up!
