The Second ACT

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Today, I declare a revolution on my summer.

Summer is almost over. I only have 2 more months left before school starts again. So, for the rest of the summer, I want to use my time efficiently to improve myself for the better.

After getting out of the dump from the game addiction, sickness, and grades, I am ready to declare a second ACT for this summer

What is going to change:

1. New Time management skill & strategy will be developed and tested this summer in order to prepare for “use” when school start.

2. Whitening my teeth & dentist check-up

3. Reorganized closets & clothes & books for the new year

4. Finish Learning Organic Chemistry

5. Finish Organic Chemistry Lab Intro

6. Gym 5 days a week

7. Relearn how to play piano

8. Skim through Bio Book & prepare for future reading

9. Finish 2 reading books.

10. Prepare MCAT Literary test.

11. Design & built a Home Photostudio

12. Produce a my Maplestory drama series

13. Prepare & Produce Volunteer Service

14. Relax time with parents & friends

This is my Goal List for the Rest of Summer. I am going to get off my lazy butt and start making things happen!

I absolutely have no idea how I am going to achieve it all.

And.. I’m not even sure if I got the calories for fried rice correct. And I didn’t even exercise today because my body was completely sore today.

Healthy Living Daily Records: A though…

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Today, my mom bought me a new purse! πŸ™‚ I’m very happy. It was very kind of my parents to do this for me after what I went through. I don’t think I deserve it, but they say its a gift for trying and it’s also a early celebration gift to help me get started again. And.. to motivate me to be a girl and concentrate on my life and body instead of video games pixil.

Also, today, I saw a celebrity at the mall. I didn’t run to her and scream like crazy, instead, a though rush through me. What’s does she have that I don’t have? and obviously, my mind begin to list all the criteria..

-the popularity, the money, the body, the looks, the face,

and then I think about what i have that she might not have or know how to cherish

-a loving family, an education, a dream in sight, and a future..

.. so, then I wonder.. I want to be like her. I am not after her popularity of money. But I am after her body, her looks, and her face. In my belief, I don’t think any woman is born ugly. She simply doesn’t know how to take care of yourself.

THus, I am determin to work toward the body I always wanted. As well for my face, I’m gonna start learning how to perserve my skin, and get braces. I think it’s time, I take care of my teeth and skin. .. but right after, my eye heal 100% of course (b/c right now, it’s only 90%)… so the skin part can wait, but I definily going to work on my teeth tomorrow!

So.. I also took inspiration by following the blog of the Korean pop star SNSD-Girls Generation. To Motivate me.. that “she doesn’t get this body by staring, drooling, or wishing..she got this body by getting off her ass and working for it every second, everyday, for her whole entire life” πŸ™‚ …

So.. Daily Records:

Breakfast: 1/2 banana + 1/2 cup of strawberry + 1/2 ban bao + 1 bowl of cereal = 150 + 100+ 100

Lunch: 2 slice of bread + 1 fish + 1/2 fish filet + 1 bowl of rice + soup = 180 + 100 + 50 + 250

Dinner: 2 slice of bread +1/2 fish filet + 1 bowl of rice + soup = 180 + 100 + 250

Dessert: 1 bag of grapes + 1 bag of mixed cereal = 200

Total:Β  1570 calories

The GOOD: well.. I ate fruits. But.. still, not enough. I need to cut back on the rice + bread. Maybe, next time, it’s one or another. but not both .. b/c then i’m just stuffing myself.

The Bad: I feel that I haven’t been eating vegetable lately. I need to bring that back into my healthy living eating style, and definitly drink more water + more fruits. I’m going to bring back eating fruits + drinking water. Then slowly introduce 2 lunches of salads.. to work that part into my system.. and wait till my period is over.. and start exercising again. Also, i need to stop eating cereal when i”m not Hungry.. and slowly cut back on all sugary-fruit dirnks b/c basically, I feel like i”m suck drinking calories when it comes to drinking artifical “fruit” juice. πŸ™‚

Overall, a pretty good day on the healthy living system. I wish I could exercise, but, right now, my body is telling me to rest, and that’s exactly what i’m gonna do! Peace out, healthy world, until tomorrow. Below is a motivational picture:

Healthy Living Daily Records: I’m back again and…

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

I’m back again, and I’m not planning to fall down anymore.

Yes yes, I been through some rough obstacles lately, but This is it!

After receiving that grades, it was a slap in my face. But I needed that slap to wake up. And life has been a lot better from then on. I was very unhappy before, but I feel I have never been happier now. I need and deserve that slap, because I’m coming back stronger. It’s time to take my life back.

So let’s start…. what I did this week, (and no updating 3fatchicK), I did a lot of thinking.. and crying.. and reflecting. But, through that time, I saw what I was doing wrong, I realize my flaw, and the mistakes that have lead me down this road. And.. I’m ready to start again and apply my “new” strategy. I’m gonna kick ass this quarter. πŸ™‚

OH.. and this weekend, I made 2 new changes to my life. I made a 2 years membership at 24 hours fitness! And, I also cut my hair, and just in time, my eye heal! I’m really back with 100% FULL HEALTH! πŸ˜€ I have never been happier.

SO.. let’s start w/ the daily Records:

Breakfast: 1 banana + 1 cup of strawberry + 1 bowl of cereal = 200 + 150

Lunch: 1 bowl of rice + 1 bowl of fish + 1 bowl of soup = 250 + 100 + 100

Dinner: 1 bowl of rice + 1 bowl of fish + 1 bowl of soup = 250 + 100 + 100

Dessert: 1 bowl of fruits + 1 cup of juice = 100 + 130

Exercise: 10 minutes stair climbing + 30 minutes tredmill (It’s not much, but it was a good start)

Total: 1500 Calories! πŸ™‚

The good: It never feel so good to be back and back on my feet. All my game addiction seems to be a mile away. After my grades drop, the game addiction seems to completely disappear. I never even thought about it anymore. And.. after hitting the gym, I feel proud about of myself, so I wasn’t disappointed about my weight, b/c i know it’s gonna be change by next week. As for my eyes, it never bother me again! πŸ˜€ Haha, my new haircut has definitely made it easier on my eyes! Also, I called my grandma for the first time IN .. YEARS? She was very happy that she cried. I never have been happier talking to her. Haha.. that silly old lady that I love so dearly. I am going ask my mom to buy her a new air matress for her back!

The Bad: I’m starting my summer section 2 classes today. I’m scare as hell b/c I am not confident in my ability. And.. I kinda started my “hw’ late. But.. I’m currently doing hw.. right now! so… it’s all good! πŸ™‚
