My High School Reunion

My 20 year high school reunion is rearing its ugly head at me.  I knew it was coming but until the committee actually announced a date, I wasn't going to think about it.  Well, they did indeed set a October of this year.  What does that mean?  

My 50 pound weight loss goal now has an official deadline.  

In October.  

I want to show up at least 5 pounds less than what I weighed in high school.  And unfortunately that puts me around 50 pounds that I have to lose.  Yes, I'm that chick that wants to go back and show everyone else up.  Make all of those former crushes wish they had actually done something about it at the time because LOOK AT ME NOW!

Do I actually want any of them now? 


I just want them to want me.  Is that so wrong?  

The truth is that's just my ego talking.  At the end of the day I could really care less about whether or not they want me.  I'm in love with my Special Someone, and all signs point to him being in love with me too...including him verbally expressing it so....that's all I need and want.  And for me, that means that all other males become androgynous.  Ok, ok...I'm human.  I'm sure there are some that will still turn my head although I can't think of anyone specific at the moment.  For the most part, however, it's my guy or nothing.  (He'll probably be relieved to hear that, although I'm still not sure that sentiment works both ways).

Back to the weight loss dilemma...well, I've realized that the reunion was coming up since the end of last year, so to ensure my goal it probably would have been wise to have started then.  I did join a gym....and went exactly 2 times.  I actually injured myself the 2nd time (pretty much blew out both quads), but I never went back after my quads healed. That's a whole different blog post.  And now it's almost March and I have a little over 5 months to get my act together.

But it's going to have to start tomorrow.  Tonight I have girls's night...and wings...and fruity adult beverages to partake in.....

Things Asians Hate...

This video came across my Facebook feed from comedian, Eliot Chang, and I about spit out my coffee as I hit play.  It's so true...and yes, people really do say these things to you when you're Asian.  LOL

Men, for the love of God, if you don't know this by now, just stop dating altogether:

2013 - What Do You See?

Image source unknown

The first three words I saw in the following order were: Love, Fun, Happiness

Considering the trial and tribulations that made up the majority of my 2012, I am ecstatic at the prospect of those three words making up the theme of my 2013.  To be fair I had some amazingly good things happen in 2012, but honestly, the bad comprehensively outweighed the good.

Bring on 2013!

What If Money Didn't Matter?

Tony Robbins - Selection and Connection

If you were reading my blog a few years ago, you would have noticed me talking a few times about Tony Robbins and my involvement with his organization.  In recent years, I've moved away from being an active member within the group, however, I've never moved away from the tools and the learning I obtained during my involvement as a participant in his programs, as a crew member of his events, and in my leadership training with his team.  Every once in a while certain videos from his team pop up on Facebook, in my email or some other form of communication, and they jump out at me for whatever reason.  The video below happened to jump out at me today.  

I did this exercise...a number of years ago, and I still have the list that he's referring to in terms of what I want and what I don't want in a partner.  The only part of the list that I didn't write down (and I'm not sure I fully thought it through) is the person I would have to be in order to get what I wanted.  I'm going to have to dig that list back out again and take a little looksie just to see...

Tony's style isn't for everyone, but his message is.

I'm not a fan of being uncomfortable with it, but I'm learning to like it...

Holiday Spirit

It's taken me a bit of time to get into the holiday spirit considering I didn't actually have the traditional turkey dinner, but dim sum instead...That's the Asian part of the family shining brightly through.  LOL  Anywhoo, between that and most likely not getting around to putting up a tree or other holiday decorations AGAIN this year, the holiday spirit has been slow to invade my psyche.  But then I saw this featuring one of my favorite Christmas songs, and I can feel it creeping in...
