exercise park

Have you ever listened to a recording of your voice and cringed at how high/nasally your voice sounds? (Even though others seem to think it sounds just fine?)

In this video I share two quick and simple tips I use for webinars and recordings to like my own voice a little better.

I hope this might be helpful for some of you out there!

I would like to see how it looks so if you reblog with an screenshot I will be eternally thankful, you’ll help me a lot with this exercise.


Sooo, I try to be as honest as I can. Last night, I ate. Again. That’s 2 nights in a row. Ughhh. I don’t even be hungry. I just want to eat. I kept it Keto foods, but still. On the way home from work, I was so close to going to McDonald’s, but I talked myself out of it and turned around and just went home. I told myself if I’m going to eat anything, it’ll be keto foods. Still not good, but I’m trying here lol.

I wish I would’ve never started eating carb dense foods again because now I have cravings like a MF. Ughhh it sucks. But I’m going to do better, I promise this to myself.

I did get up before 8 today and got motivated by a friend. I was just laying in bed when he told me he was up early to go to the gym. So I was like lemme get my ass up and goooo too. I went to the park (my little park) and initially planned to do 3 miles, but I did 2 instead. I didn’t wanna push myself too much especially with it being hot out there and I didn’t bring any water.

I must say, I feel sooo good. There was another girl there, she was running thoo. And all I could think was, “wow, you’re passing me up again?” Hahah! I’m not the fastest walker, but ima get there. Today’s day 1. I planned on going just 3 days a week for right now, but idk. May go the rest of the week. I feel sooo good. The sun was out, but there was also a cool breeze accompanying him. It was perfect.

Thank you @xtinedancefit for being some inspiration and motivation to me. You have pushed me as well and you don’t know how much I appreciate that and you. You’re absolutely amazing, doll! 😘😘

find boyfriend! hwang minhyun here, boyfriend! ong seongwoo here and boyfriend! im youngmin here :-) 

I sort of had a super amazing day!  Even though I already got my butt on the move today, it was so nice and sunny outside that I just had to walk through Metro Park. Very spring-like today, though a little windy. Such is life in Michigan. I think I used my legs enough today, so I’ll probably move cardio to Thursday and do my ab workout tomorrow to give them a break. I feel so on top of things this week.

wanna one as conversations with my asian mom

disclaimer: real 100% convos with my mom. my mom is straight from china so lots of asian jokes ahead. not meant to be offensive, just for laughs! read at your own discretion. you have been warned.  ps read in an asian accent for more laughs

yoon jisung:

mom: “why you so fat now? when i was high school student, i weigh 45 kg. you so fat, so ugly. aiya.”

2 minutes later…

mom: “come downstairs eat dinner! eat more, eat more!

*aggressively shoves food onto my plate*

ha sungwoon:

mom: “why you always no stand up straight? you look like old grandma. even i’m taller than you now!”

me: “what are you even talking about, mom? you’re wearing 5-inch heels, you cheater!”

hwang minhyun:

mom: “if you to the good college, i can go back to shanghai and brag to the family. go to stanford, be doctor, so i can have the money travel the world with your dad. we can brag to your auntie haha.” 

me: “mom stop dreaming.”

mom: “i treat you always so good, and this is how you repay me? can’t even go to the stanford? any chinese student can make it into stanford easy. why you so stupid?” 

ong seongwoo:

mom: “aiya, you so ugly. skin so dark. why you no put on sunscreen, wear hat? i can’t go to china with you, you embarrassing.”

me: “what are you talking about? i stayed inside all summer. plus we’re asian. our skin is yellow.”

mom: “no you dark. why you no like japanese, korean white skin, huh? you always watch gay-pop videos, watch dramas, but you no learn from them white skin?” 

me: “mom, it’s k-pop, not gay-pop god.”

Taste Of Spring
26 August 2017

Spring is in the air with sunshine and flowers and the prospect of Summer to come - aah joy. I had a healthy breakfast smoothie and lots of veges with my bacon & eggs for lunch, with a 4.5km walk for coffee & ‘Living Pukka’ catch-up in between. This is a health-focussed fb group and I had a fun time meeting some new people. This evening I got my kit ready for tomorrow’s City To Durf 12km fun run. The weather forecast is for sunshine and 24°C. It may be more of a walk jog for me but the plan is to turn up and enjoy the day.



So you love Dinosaurs just like everyone else and they love you too. especially for morning, evening and night. Getting stuck in Jurassic Park with T-Rexes, Raptors and other dangerous animals is no good but luckily I’m here to help you survive!
