diet blog #3 --- MAC package

So as of...yesterday morning I lost 2 lbs!!! :D
It's not much but I'm happy!!!
I probably gained it back but still hahaha
I accomplished something this week!! LOL xD

Yesterday I ate....

Friday 01/29/10
Breakfast: two eggs scrambled, two raisin toast with hummus, two slices spam, 1 cup milk
Snack/lunch: 1 cookie with grape jelly filling, water, 4 dumplings
Dinner: tuna salad on 1 slice high fiber multigrain bread, 1 banana, 1 small cup unsweetened ice tea, water
Snack: grapefruit, assortment of veggies

Exercise: work (working at fast food restaurant is harder than it looks! There's so much to it!!)

When I got back from tutoring, I found my MAC package waiting for me!!!
I opened the box right away!!!
Like I said in my last post, I got 19 things...(I don't know why, but I just ended up buying a lot of...stuff)
I most likely will be posting up another video, showing the things I got.
I would rather show pictures than my face and voice, but I have no camera!! T_T

Which reminds me to ask you guys...
What camera should I get? A small digital camera or the big ones?
I really like the big Nikon or Canon ones..but they're so expensive! and I'm still an amateur at taking pictures...

Any suggestions???

diet blog #2

I kind of screwed up my food plan today...

actually..BIG time

Breakfast: two slices high fiber multigrain toast with hummus
Lunch: 6" Spicy Italian on wheat bread from Subway..I put spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, banana peppers, olives and provolone cheese. It had pepperoni and salami.
Snack: small red seedless grapes, half Big Mac
Dinner: Milk and apple fries from Burger King.

Exercise: 1 hour treadmill -- walking on incline 3.0 at 3.5 speed, ran..I ran longer than two minutes today!! I didn't feel tired at all, but of course I had to stop for no reason after 4 minutes -__- and I lifted weights for the first time at the gym!! It's not that bad...the machines are really easy to use. I went with my friend and it was really nice to have someone to talk to while working out. The time seemed to go by really fast too!!

so TIP of the day: Find a diet/workout buddy!! Buddies are great support!!

I'm afraid my calves are going to be bulkier than they already are. I never had skinny legs it too much to ask for skinny legs?!?!?! D:
I hope they'll slim down..I want to wear some skinny jeans!!! T_T

So, I've been working at Burger King for the two weeks now.
I always said I would NEVER work at a fast food restaurant, but look at me now..sigh.
But it's good experience..some say it's good on resumes???
So, today's assistant manager made me practice the drive thru. It wasn't that bad UNTIL a whole flock of cars come at once!!!! It's so hard to remember everything!! I have move fast and it's really hard because you can't have people waiting.
But he said I was doing well and it made me happy haha.


So that was my experience of the day. You really do learn something everyday..

More picture time!!

NEW diet blog

Yet again..another new diet blog.
Man..I'm getting tired of making new ones..aren't you??


This time is FOREAL FOREAL!!! joke

First, this is my food diary of what I ate since Saturday..

Breakfast: 1 yogurt parfait from McDonald's, 1 slice multigrain bread
Snack: handful of blueberries
Lunch: 2 arepas with guacamole and grated cheese
Snack: 2 spring rolls, handful of walnuts
Dinner: 1 plate of chopped lettuce, tomatoes, steak, chicken, guacamole, bellpepper --> taco salad, shared plate of strawberries, blueberries and grapes with friends

This day was hard because it was the first day..I was so hungry!!! But, I was happy I accomplished the day strong..kind of. HA

Sunday 01/24/10
Breakfast: 1 small orange, 1 arepa with guacamole and grated cheese
Brunch: 1 bowl fish cake soup
Lunch: BBQ chopped salad at Paradise, 1 chocolate chip cookie (oops)

Lunch: Kimchi soup with fist size amount white rice
Snack: gum
Dinner: salad with walnuts, mandarins, and olives

Exercise: 1 hour walking and running on 3.0 incline.
So, the last time I ran was basketball season 3-5 years ago. I want to be able to run longer without stopping, so I tried it and I can only run for two minutes -__- how pathetic is that right?
I heard that after the first five minutes, you'll be able to run without stopping..I want to be able to do that, but I stop before the five minutes!! UGH my stupid brain tells me that i'm running out of air, but I'm not..I need more mental strength -__-

Lunch: Italiano salad. It had cheese, olives, and ham with vinegarette dressing
Snack: 1 small Gala apple
Dinner: BLT sandwich with bacon, lettuce, tomato, no mayo on high fiber multigrain bread.

Unfortunately, today just happened to be the start of you know what and I've been PMSing like no other today.
I got a lot of bad cramps, so I decided to stay home, but what a lame excuse. I should have went because I ended up arguing with my dad..AGAIN!! I hate this time of the month..I get pissed over nothing -__-

My current weight is...the last time I checked, it was 166.
My goal weight is 145 lbs and be able to fit into size 4-6 pants.
I also want slim legs, but somehow they look as if they're getting bulkier Dx
I hope running, squats, lunges, and jump roping help..and weight lifting..

and here are some pics I just wanted to share of few of my favorite gals~~
enjoy :]

support....spending spree..future..

My sister's accountability group at church and I are doing a diet together.
I'm so excited!
I'm finally getting the support I need and I'm not in this alone!
It's VERY HARD to diet by yourself. I tried countless times, but I always end up giving up in the middle and gaining everything back.
I need to find time in my schedule to work out too...
My goal is to be able to wear size 4-6 pants.
I think that's reasonable for girls tall like me.
I want to be toned too and slim legs...I hate running though!! Maybe I should jump rope?? But what if I get taller?!?! :O
I'm not too worried about weight numbers's going to depend on muscle and long as I can fit in a size 4, I'll be happy :]

Being part of an accountability group is great!
I never had true girl friends before..
For those who don't know what accountability group is, it's a group where you can rant, talk about your problems/struggles, support each other, and have fun.
All of us in the group are in college, and most of us are leaders at church. We don't have much time to talk to each other because we're in different groups and don't have time to really sit down and, it's nice to have sisters to talk to. Also, because it's a church group, our center focus is God.

I think it's a great idea for everyone to be in an accountability group, whether it's at church, school, neighborhood, or friends. No one wants to do anything by his or herself. It's hard and we see ourselves stumble many times, but with good friends, you can reach your goals! So, instead of saying and writing down goals and resolutions, how about taking that step and doing them?

Everyone is always talk talk talk. But those who succeed are the ones that get up and DO SOMETHING!! a side note..
My friend and I decided on the name sisterhood of the traveling bible, but all the other girls didn't like it. I thought it was pretty cool hahaha so, we're still thinking of a cool name..any suggestions??

Have you guys seen Kim Kardashian's new body?!?!?!

it's a body to die for!!!
One of these days this year, I will FINALLY have the body I wanted for so many many years!!

I also bought $265 of MAC products online...crazy??? I guess you could say that.
BUT I'm a MACaholic!!!
I recently started to collect MAC..I guess you could say it's a hobby?
I think I ordered about 20 things: 1 brush, 1 Eye Kohl, 1 Mineralize Blush, 1 Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, 1 eyeshadow palette, and 15 eyeshadows.
(The caps are not necessary, but there are just some people who never learn -___-)

I could be a makeup artist, but it's not realistic due to my cultural background. Darn Asian parents!!!
My parents always told me to do this and do that. I'm the oldest child in the family and on my mom's side, so I feel like I the duty to make them happy.
I don't even know what I like to this day...I don't know what I'm passionate for.
I was thinking of studying to be a pediatrician because I love kids, but will I like it in the future?
I don't want to regret anything..
I want to do something that helps people, but I don't necessarily have to be a doctor...I'm hoping I'll find the answer soon because I feel like time is running out... :/

OH and please pray for Haiti and do as much as you can to help!!
They need your help!!

Don't forget to enter for the giveaway and contest!!!
I forgot to mention this, but I'll be adding extra goodies for each winner! Tell your friends and fellow bloggers :]

I got my MAC package!!!!
It took a week to get here...maybe 6 days???
I wish it would come sooner, but the tax is so much cheaper online than going to the store and buying it, so the wait is worth it.
I'll still go to the store because I'm a very impatient person..


I got a few things from the Warm and Cozy Collection.

By Candlelight Mineralize Skinfinish
Comfort Mineralize Skinfinish
Nurture Shadestick
Cuddle Shadestick
2N lipglass

I'm so excited to try these out!!
I couldn't wait for this collection to come out and I finally got the stuff!!

I'm glad these came in today because I was having a crappy day but all is good :]

My brother ordered the battery charger for our digital camera, so I'll post pictures if it comes...if not I'll use my crappy camera phone like always...

I made a video!!! It's my first video and I'm kind of embarrassed, but I hope you guys like it :]
and sorry for the bad quality..I used my webcam and the lighting sucks, but it will have to do for now..

P.S. I'm trying to find ways to make this blog as pretty and cool as possible, but until, I am so grateful for those who read my blog!!! THANK YOU AND I LOVE YOU GUYS!!! GOD BLESS <3

The title says it all.
I've decided to have a giveaway and a contest because I feel like giving :]

So, I bought earrings from when I was in Korea last year and I saved them to give as gifts but they just looked better as prizes!

I’m also doing a giveaway as a thanks for those who follow/subscribe..I know my blog is boring, but I’m doing the best I can!! Blogs were something that I started for me. I wanted to have a journal/diary, but I thought an online one would be better because I don’t like it when I write and my hand starts to hurt..


Rules for the contest:
Lately , I’ve been collecting makeup, especially from MAC. It turned into a hobby I guess you can say and I REALLY like it even though I kill my wallet every single time I buy something.
Contest: Spring is on its way..slowly, SO create a spring look for 2010!! It can be something dramatic or something you can wear every day. Send me a picture or tutorial of the look and tell me what colors you used so maybe I can give it a try! :]

1) Everyone and anyone is allowed to enter!! So, tell your fellow bloggers and friends to enter!!

2) Submit your entry to my email: with the subject as BLOG CONTEST
Your submissions can be photos or videos..I prefer photos to make sure that I can open the file without a problem because I can be technologically challenged at times, but whatever floats your boat :]


There will be THREE winners!!
The prizes are
1. black Dior

2. silver/white Dior

3. four leaf clovers

4. bows

5. two hearts

6. three hearts

(sorry for the bad picture quality!! I'm still saving up for a digital camera >_<)
First place winner gets to pick ONE of the two Dior earrings and two other pairs.
Second place winner will receive the second pair of Dior earrings and gets to pick another pair.
Third place winner gets the last pair.
I will have a few people to help me judge this contest to make it fair!!

For the giveaway, one winner will receive two lotions from Victoria’s Secret.
A new scent called Secret Charm and a body lotion from VS PINK.

Rules are:
1) MUST be a follower/subscriber of one of my blogs: xanga, livejournal, blogspot
2) Can only enter once!! Reason is because I don’t want to go through a long list of comments
3) All you have to do is comment “enter me” under this post along with your email address
I’m going to enter all the names in a randomizer to be fair

Contest and giveaway is opened to US, CANADA, and INTERNATIONAL

AND I am going to donate $0.25 for every contest and giveaway entry to the American Red Cross to help Haiti!!!! I got this idea from Erica. I just recently subscribed to her YouTube channel (ericaleung13) and her blog ( I would really love to go help out, but because of the situation I’m in, donating will have to do. I STRONGLY encourage all of you to help out in any way possible whether it’s UNICEF, Invisible Children, Red Cross, other legit foundations profit or nonprofit, or volunteering in your local community.

The contest and giveaway will end on February 28th, so you’ll have a lot of time to get some ideas!! I hope it won't be too hard ^^;;

This is my first giveaway and contest, and I know the prizes are not great compared to all the other prizes bloggers give away. But, will get better!! I don’t know when, so I’m not going to make any promises. I will do my best though :]

Good luck you all of you, have fun and GOD BLESS!!!
