Watch out because I am contagious

I switched from regular running/work out shoes to this Vibram five toes/fingers shoes:). They look weird at first, but they are very comfortable and great for legs work out because they give you that good grip you need and your feet don't slide. They are a bit pricey, but you can get them online for about $75. I got mine from Sun and Ski for $108 including tax. They are good for rock climbing and yoga too. I start to see more and more people wearing them at the gym so I don't feel weird wearing them anymore:)

I am infected with an obsession to work out and I am totally contagious. Proof? My FI is infected now because he is alwaus with me:). He may not be as obessive with working out, but he has been going to gym lots more often like four days a week, and taking on a healthy eating habits...and guess what? he has pretty good results.

How often do I work out? On an average four to time times a week. Trust me, I get lazy too, don't try to sit on the couch to watch TV after you get off from work, chance is you will not get up to make it to the gym:).

Where do I work out? Apartment home gym or between different LA fitness locations, LA Fitness Richardson, Preston and 635 and more frequently at Mid-way and Park.

What are my work out regimens? I don't use lots of machine, and/or the same work out machine everyday. I use mostly my own body weight and or free weights. Those work better, but I still use machine to change up the work out as well. I always stretch prior to and after my work out. Your muscle grows easier and you become more flexible not injured if you stretch. My work out usually starts or ends with at least 20 mins high intensive cardio either walking very fast on the treadmill with high incline or on the stair master with high speed of course.

  1. Stretch prior to and after work out

  2. Cardio of at least 20 mins only if you do high intensive or if you go low pace, you have to do 40 mins because your body won't start burning until after the first 20 minutes if you just kind of walking slow and taking it easy

  3. Weight work out: don't do the same exervise or same muscle group everyday. You have to change it up, your muscles need rest to grow. One major and minor muscle group a day.

  4. Let's say we start out with legs work out on Monday: you can either do full legs work out or just partial legs work out.

  5. Tuesday: no weight work out, must cardio and abs. On the day you only do cardio and abs, 45 mins cario and at least 15 mins abs

  6. Wednesday: back and biceps

  7. Thursday: rest if you want to, but if you feel like goign to the gym, cardio and abs

  8. Friday: Chest and tri-ceps

  9. Saturday off, rest day

  10. Sunday: shoulders and arms, some cardio to end the work out

Let's just start out like this. Working out is just as important as keeping a healthy diet if you want to ahieve optimal results. I will blog more often, and I will explain in more details on some of the good abs, legs, back, chest, arms exercises. I love fashion, I love food, but I have to maintain a healthy life style to feel good and look good in all the beautifyl clothes right?

what's new?

I have two addictions:
1) I am addicted to working out. I am a healthy nut, I work out on an average 5 days a week which including 30 mins on the stair-master, 40 mins weight, and 20-25 mins abs. I eat supper healthy and do not consume sugar, cake if I do they come from natural sources like fruits. I barely eat rice although I am Asian.

2) I have weakness for pretty designer clothes and shoes. FI and I are in the process to start a house building process, and we have been trying to look for a perfect plan. We have purchased a plan earlier this year, but had to push back on the process because I thought the plan was too big, would be wasting money on property tax and ultilies. It's been very frustrating to find a perfect plan for our lot that also has all what we need. We finally found one, and if everything goes as plan, hopefully we will have our new house by next Spring 2012.

J-brand Jeans

Christian Louboutin Knee-high suede boots
Master closet: instead of having closet in the master, we modify it to make the master bigger, and our 5th bedroom will be connected to the master and will be converted into the closet for me:). He just knows me well and he always points out plan with small closet that may not be something I like. Such a considerate person:).

It's a perfect one story house so we'll modify the ceiling to be about 12' tall through out.

Friend's BD.

I wore this to my friend's BD last week. J-crew skirt, Givenchy silk top from Barneys, Chloe clutch, and CL patent pumps. I love love this skirt, it's so pretty and look like a nice piece that comes from couture line/price tag although it is not.

I told myself that I do not need another black dress, but then again this fits so perfect and nice so here I go, breaking my promise and vow:). Because it is a runway dress so it runs small, I think I am a size 34 in Lanvin, but this 36 fits perfectly without any alternation.

Where have I been?

I know this pic is lame, just want to ducument my body transformation progress:), I feel like my abs was better before the 4th of July Holidays, must be the food and drink that I consumed all 5 days weekend:). This pic was taken today:)

I am still trying to find the best button down silk shirt to go with it. This is the type of skirt if worn wrong it would go from classy to trashy.

Herve Leger sequin skirt, Robert Rodriguez pearl top and CL black pumps

Worn here to date night dinner with Mr. B-Dinh, J-crew skirt, dolce & Gabbana lace top (the top comes with straps, but I have them tucked to wear as strapless) Christian Louboutin patent leather peeptoes pumps.

I don't really have many followers and readers, but if you follow my blog you know I am not a good blogger:)

1) I don't have cool outfit post like most other bloggers:)

2) The photos on my posts are usually taken by my iphone so they are not the best quality

3) I am camera shy and don't really take pictures too often
4) I don't really go out much to any social event so this explains why my blog is dry and boring:)
