Blog Post 101

So, this is my 101st blog post.  Yeah!

Remember the diet I was on?  The exercise more, eat whatever I want, blog less diet?  Well, it's going OK.  I'm not losing weight, but I feel stronger and I think my figure might be getting better...but who knows really?  I've done a lot of yoga, running, step aerobics, hoops, weight lifting, and boxing with a personal trainer.  She insists that I won't see the results right away, but if I stick with it, I will start to see measurable improvement.  

Even though I haven't lost any weight, I still feel that I have accomplished a lot.  When I have a day where all I do is sit around, I look in the mirror and all I see is the chub.  However, after I have exercised, I feel a sense of accomplishment, and I begin to see the health and beauty beyond the chub.  I honestly think that the biggest part of the whole process is how you feel about your own body image.  

After all, it isn't what other's think of me, but how I see myself.  

And I needed to see myself differently.

In honor of my new body image, I have decided to get a personal makeover!

Sooo...

--I got a new outfit.

--I got a new hairstyle with a new COLOR!

--I did my eyebrows (finally!)

--I'm wearing make-up

--I may have plumped up my lips a little.

...and, I really think I like the way I look.

It's a new hot look to match my new hot bod(y image).  Yes, this new look is what I need to take me to the next level.

So, are you ready for some before and after pics?

After: 







I wonder if my personal trainer will even notice?

Is that a Mary Kay illustration at the top? We should all do our lips like that.

All my other Asian friends have no problem with weight. They are all super slim. Of course, they all smoke. Are you sure you're really Asian?

Your Asian friends are probably 1) 100% Asian 2) haven't given birth to multiple children 3) don't have a cheese fetish.
