For Those Wondering

Hello Dear Reader,

Thank you for taking the time to actually check out my blog. However, I regret to inform you that while I may have had high hopes for this blog, I am unable to pursue my blogging goals within the foreseeable future. This is because I have to many important things that I have to prioritize first over blogging.

I promised myself not to do anything half heartedly. This includes blogging. When I first started this blog, I had a lot of plans.This was because my situation then led to a lot of free time wherein I can contemplate and express myself. I thought I had a lot to offer the blogosphere. Unfortunately this is no longer the case.

Right now, I have very lofty academic goals. Academic goals that at the present economy, my parents cannot afford. I understand this and I accept it. However, I am still holding on to this ambition. Because of this, I have taken a job that can help me raise the cost of my educational goals. My parents and I are working hand in hand for my education.

Because of this, I am no longer able to fully commit to my blogging endeavor. For the next year, I am focusing on three things, my education, my job and other money making endeavors that I can try in order to raise money.

It’s not only blogging that has suffered. My social life is virtually non existent right now. I also have made sacrifices in terms of shopping and other leisure activities.

You may wonder what prompted this radical change. Well lets just say that I had an epiphany. A few weeks ago, I had a great talk with a person that truly inspires me. For the first time in my life, I know what I want and I know what to do in order to get what I want. I just can no longer ignore it.

So dear reader, thank you for reading. Stop back in a few months. Maybe I’ll be back by then. Have a great day everyone!

The Best!

I just had the best weekend ever! It was just perfect. I had my best friends with me and we were on the beach and we just let loose. After being so busy with school and getting so tired with our gym sessions, it was about time that we treated ourselves and simply had a great time.

Another thing that I loved was the fact that we all looked awesome in our bikinis. Yes, we were definitely a long way from being a Victoria’s Secret Angel but we all felt good about ourselves. I do not know if it was because we had really cute swimsuits or just that we felt carefree and just so excited to be there. All I know is, we received a lot of compliments about how hot we were looking. Of course, that jump started our weekend for sure.

Honestly, I felt like we were in that movie The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. Haha. Random, I know. But it feels like our whole weekend was like that. We have always been close but somehow, the long weekend made us closer to each other, if that is even possible.

All in all, it was just the best weekend ever and we could not wait for more of these soon!

Last Minute

I mentioned last time that we were heading out to the beach this weekend. Well, since we still had a couple of days until the actually weekend comes, my friends and I still went to the gym to have last minute sessions. One can never have enough exercise especially if you are preparing to go to the beach. Believe me, we are not vain at all. We just want to feel good about ourselves and wearing our bikinis should feel natural and not awkward. We just bought new swimsuits and we must be able to look smoking hot in them. In order for us to fully rock those sexy stuff, we must tone up for the weekend.

My thighs are my biggest insecurity about my body. That is why I focused on working out my thighs and legs today. My trainer asked me to work on the elliptical trainer today instead of the usual treadmill. He told me that this was a faster way for me to achieve my goal which is to strengthen my things. Treadmill more or less does the same thing but this equipment is more effective. At first, I did not get the right rhythm but as soon as I got into it, I actually enjoyed it.

Getting Ready

We are going to have a long weekend and I am just so excited! Finally! I can just chill out and have fun with my friends. I do not have to worry about school work and waking up early to go to class. I cannot wait for the weekend to finally come!

We all decided to go to the beach. We thought it was about time we debut our gym bodies. Haha. Seriously, we just wanted to get lazy and get a tan as well. It has been a while since we last sunbathing and we were looking forward to the long weekend. Surely, it was going to be a blast.

However, we suddenly got worried because we did not have the right outfits yet. Haha. We are girls, after all. Plus, we have been working hard at the gym and so of course, we wanted to flaunt our bodies the right way. We still do not know if there were any really big changes in our bodies but at that point, we did not really care because all we wanted was to relax and chill out. This was going to the best weekend yet and I must prepare everything as soon as possible.

No Pain, No Gain

My new motto is “no pain, no gain”. Seriously, I am so ready to give up. I feel so tired and I am beginning to question myself. Is this even worth it? Is this worth the pain and suffering? But then, I just cannot find it in myself to quit. I feel like I have already started something really good and quitting halfway does not seem acceptable. I am not a quitter and I am definitely not going to start right now. Hence, the motto that I keep saying over and over again to myself just to pump myself up.

It has been really tough and I believe that if I did not have two of my best friends with me, I would have probably stopped altogether. Losing weight is a lot of work and it takes a lot of sacrifice and dedication to actually achieve your goal of losing weight. However, I feel like everything would just have been a waste of time and effort if I stopped now. I am going to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel and this is the only way. So be it.

I started this journey and I am going to finish it no matter what.

Avicii x Guetta

I have always loved a good remix and for me, the two of the most amazing DJs right now are Avicii and David Guetta. Well, David Guetta is more popular and mainstream than Avicii but I actually love him more. Imagine, he is just 22 years old but he has done so many amazing stuff already! It is pure talent, I tell you.

I have been going over YouTube videos and I just cannot help but reminisce on their songs. I feel nostalgic even just by looking and listening to both of their remixes. They are really awesome and if I wanted to be a DJ, these two are probably going to be my influences. Of course, I know I would never have a future in that field. That is why I just listen and appreciate.

This is pronounced as Uh-Vee-Chi.

Here is a small bio about these very talented DJ (Source: Wikipedia).

Tim Bergling (born 8 September 1989), known professionally as Avicii, Tim Berg and Tom Hangs, is a Swedish DJremixer, and record producer.[1] His single “Bromance” (recorded under the pseudonym Tim Berg) has charted in the top 20 on the national single charts of Belgium, the Netherlands, and his native Sweden. A lyricized version titled “Seek Bromance” was released shortly thereafter, charting on the UK Singles Chart and reaching number one on the international Beatport chart. Other singles include “Levels” (sampling the song “Something’s Got a Hold On Me” by Etta James), “Fade Into Darkness” (sampling the song “Perpetuum Mobile” by Penguin Cafe Orchestra,), “My Feelings for You (sampling the song “My Feelings For You” by Cassius),” “Street Dancer,” and “Tweet It” among others. Currently he is releasing music under the Ministry of Sound label. He ranked 6th in the 2011 Top 100 DJ poll.

David Guetta has already produced lots of hits with his collaborations with the likes of Akon and even the Black Eyed Peas. Compared to Avicii, he is really current and mainstream and that is why a lot more people can appreciate him and actually know of him.

Here is a small bio about him (Source: Wikipedia).

Pierre David Guetta (born 7 November 1967), known professionally as David Guetta (French pronunciation: [daˌviːd gɛˈta]), is a French house musicproducer and DJ. Originally a DJ at nightclubs during the 1980s and 1990s, he co-founded Gum Productions and released his first album, Just a Little More Love, in 2002. Later, he released Guetta Blaster (2004) and Pop Life (2007). His 2009 album One Love included the hit singles “When Love Takes Over” (featuring Kelly Rowland), “Gettin’ Over You” (featuring Chris WillisFergieLMFAO) and “Sexy Bitch” (featuring Akon), the last becoming a top five hit in the US and all three reaching #1 in the UK, as well as another internationally known single called “Memories” featuring Kid Cudi which became a top five hit in many countries. Guetta has sold over three million albums and 15 million singles worldwide. He is currently one of the most sought-after music producers.

Distracted

I had a lot of school work and yet here I am, blogging. I just cannot help but get distracted. Our English teacher assigned us to do a paper on The Great Gatsby. Do not get me wrong, I actually find this book really interesting but I just did not feel like working and reading today. So for the past hour, I have just been browsing through blogs and even online shopping. But I know I should go back to my work because the deadline is tomorrow. Or rather, the paper is due in a few hours. As usual, I find myself cramming again.

Here is a small background about the novel (Source: Wikipedia).

The novel takes place following the First World War. American society enjoyed prosperity during the “roaring” 1920s as the economy soared. At the same time,Prohibition, the ban on the sale and manufacture of alcohol as mandated by the Eighteenth Amendment, made millionaires out of bootleggers. After its republishing in 1945 and 1953, it quickly found a wide readership and is today widely regarded as a paragon of the Great American Novel, and a literary classic.

Actually, I am looking forward to the film adaptation which will be released next year. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher, Tobey Maguire and Gemma Ward. I am sure it is going to be a good film. Let us all be updated! Anyways, I have to seriously go back to work now.

Child’s Play

After school, I went home to find my younger sister playing with her jumping rope. I then had this idea of borrowing it from her so that I could work out more at home. With this, I do not have to wait until my next gym session to actually sweat.

I talked to my sister and asked her if I could borrow her jumping rope. I explained to her that I wanted to jump rope because I felt like it was a good way to exercise and lose weight faster. At first she did not want to lend it to me because she was still using it but after pleading with her and even promising to let her borrow my iPod, she conceded.

I happily jumped rope and I seriously got so dead tired after that. Like I said, my legs already hurt from working out on the gym last time and to further make it hurt by jumping up to a hundred, I really felt like my legs were going to give up on me every time I took a step towards my bed. Oh well, that is what you call dedication and I will still continue to do this one again next time.

Swimsuits

I needed a new set of swimsuits. That is why my friends and I went to the mall today after class. We all tried on a lot of styles and honestly, I can say that I actually feel kind of good in those which I tried on. That would probably mean that I think I lost a bit of weight already. But I did not want to raise hope so I just did not think any of it. I will weigh myself next time but not right before we were going to the beach.

 

At the end of our fittings, I ended up buying a red and white striped twist bikini. I think it flattered me in all the right way so that was why I just had to buy it. Anyhow, when I arrived home, I saw this online shop which sold really cute and sexy bikinis.

Here are the three that I really wanted to get for myself.

I like this one because it kind of looks like a regular lingerie. I like the underwire because it boosts the breast more. It looks really sexy. Plus, the color is so beautiful as well.

I like the print on this one. I also like the small tube bikini tops. It looks so relaxed and almost hippie like.

I super adore this monokini because of its print and its style. It would show the curves so sexily.

Operation VS

Today was the first day I was to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Haha. Yes, I am still on this dream of mine. I just have to look as hot as them so that I can confidently wear my costume next year, complete with the wings.

The gym instructor took it easy on me today. He just made me run on the treadmill for an hour for some cardio. He did not let me lift some weights today. After the cardio exercise, he let me do crunches and sit-ups. It was hard but I was able to handle it so far. After that, he also let me work on some equipment to help tone up the muscles on my legs. I do not even know what they are called but I know that after that, my legs hurt. I could not properly walk down the stairs but overall, it was a good session.

I felt good after that workout. I did not feel bored or uncomfortable at the gym because I was with my two friends so it was actually a lot of fun. We could not wait for the next session. As long as I am determined to reach my goal, I will not quit even if I can’t go up the stairs to my own bedroom.
