2017 – Fitness Friday 43 (on a Saturday)

It’s Saturday everyone! How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. This week has been crazy busy. I wish I posted more but it is what it is. Anyway, I watched the new Star Wars movie today and I enjoyed watching it. Do you guys like Star Wars?

So, let’s talk about my workouts now.

Fitness Friday 12-15-17

The one thing I am happy about this week is that I actually ran a little bit. I have been wanting to get back into running and I am slowly doing that. Another thing to is that, I will be doing the Shamrock half marathon with my friends in March. That means I really have to kick my running into gear!

So, I think my next nutrition post will be about holiday eating. I know that the holiday season is already half over but I think it’s still relevant.

That’s it for now.

How were your workouts this week? 

Any suggestions on how to get back into running? It’s so hard when I am unable to run outside! It’s always dark before and after work, so I have to run on the treadmill.

2017 – Fitness Friday 42 (on a Saturday)

Happy Saturday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. This week has been a crazy, fun, and busy week. My work’s holiday party was fun, hung out with friends, danced, went shopping, and watched the movie Thor.

Anyway, here were my workouts for the week.

Fitness Friday 12-8-17

I still haven’t reached my goal of running yet but I will have to start at some point. I plan on doing a Super Bowl 5 k and I do want to PR on it. That means I have to start running again soon.

So, that’s it for now.

How were your workouts this week? 

What do you like to do during your free time? 

2017 – Fitness Friday 41 (on a Sunday) + Weekly Meals and Workouts

It’s Sunday everyone! How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. It has been quite a weekend. I thought that it would be a lazy weekend where I wouldn’t have to go out. But, the weather was actually fantastic and there was stuff that I had to do! I love nice sunny weather.

Anyway, this weekend was the California International Marathon. My friend ran it without much training and she did an amazing job! I debated whether to sign up for the relay with a few other friends but at that point, they had already sold out. Oh well, Maybe next year.

Speaking of exercise, here were my workouts last week.

Fitness Friday 12-1-17

I really need to get back into my running routine. I should run at least twice a week. However, I’ve been lacking motivation. I do want to mix up my workout routine with running, elliptical, and stair master. We will see how that goes.

Speaking of which, here is my plan for the week.

20171203 Meal Plan + Workouts

So, my dinner is usually just brown rice and then whatever things my parents cook. There is always vegetables and protein. The protein is either chicken, beef, fish, shrimp, tofu, etc.  If there are leftovers, I take some. If not, I just buy lunch. As for breakfast, I eat whatever is around the house (what my parents buy). If I don’t want to eat what is around the house, I buy food myself. My breakfast varies a lot.

In regards to my workouts, I want to run and incorporate yoga into my routine. I have been feeling stiff lately, so it would be nice to add it. I’ll see how that goes.

Anyway, that’s it! I really hope to have more time to type up more nutrition posts.

What is your plan for the week?

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast? 

2017 – Fitness Friday 40

Happy Friday everyone! How are you guys doing today? How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was good. I spent time with my family, which was nice. I ate a lot of good food too! I hope you guys enjoyed my Disneyland post.

Anyway, I am so happy that I am posting a Fitness Friday post on a Friday. It’s been a while. I have been busy that I wasn’t able to in the past. But since it’s the holidays, I do have some time off, which is nice!

Fitness Friday 11-24-17

I am hoping to run tomorrow morning but knowing how I have been lately, I may end up going on the elliptical again. I do and I don’t miss running. I just have to find a workout routine that I like that incorporates running once in a while.

Anyway, how was your guy’s Thanksgiving? Did you guys go Black Friday shopping?

I made a Sweet Potato Casserole to bring for my family’s Thanksgiving potluck. I have never eaten nor made one before so, it was interesting to see how it turned out. I think it turned out good, considering I never made it before and I don’t have all the fancy kitchen appliances to make it.

Other than that, I indulged, ate a slice of pumpkin pie and ate good food. I didn’t limit myself and I just enjoyed my food. I didn’t overeat though, since I let myself enjoy everything.

Anyway, that’s it for now.

How was your Thanksgiving?

How were your workouts? 

Disneyland November 2017

I went to Disneyland and California Adventure during Veteran’s Day weekend to celebrate my sister’s birthday. It was so much fun! It was a nice change of weather since I live in northern California. I love the warmth and sun. I am not a huge fan of cold and cloudy weather.

Anyway, the main reason why we went was that they will be closing down a lot of rides for a while to build/redesign new rides. One of them is California Screamin. They are also closing my favorite restaurant in California Adventure, the Cove Bar. They will probably open it up again after construction but I am not sure if they will be keeping the same name/food.

First day was Disneyland.  My plane landed in Orange county around 9:30 AM and we didn’t get to Disneyland until about 11AM. My sis and I took pictures and decided to eat lunch in the park. I ordered a turkey sandwich with chips and my sister ordered the grilled cheese sandwich with the tomato soup. The tomato soup was so good. Dip the grilled cheese in it, it was delicious!

After that, we decided to go on all the rides! Space mountain, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Tours, all of it. It was weird since it was more crowded than the last time I went back in June. The wait was longer than what I was used to. Maybe it’s because we went during Veteran’s Day weekend and Disneyland also just started their holiday season.

The rides were fun, the holiday decorations were pretty, and the castle was absolutely beautiful at night, especially with the lights! We just had to take pictures.

My sis and I ate dinner at Naples, in downtown Disney. Man, the food is expensive! Also, the waits for the other restaurants were so long. I ended up getting an eggplant parmesan dish while my sister ordered a chicken alfredo type of dish. It was pretty good but I don’t think it was worth the price that we paid for. Oh well. I knew eating at Disney was going to be expensive.

After dinner, we headed back to the park to watch the fireworks! We just had to watch the holiday themed shows.

The next day was California Adventures!

We got up a little late and ended up getting to the park around 11. There was no line getting in, which was awesome! The first thing we did was get a fast pass for the World of Color Water show (which was holiday themed) and then we went to the Cove Bar to eat brunch.

The reason we went to the Cove Bar is because we wanted to drink the Fun Wheel drink and eat their lobster nachos. Another reason is that they will be closing down this place while they are redesigning and doing construction in the park. My guess is that it won’t be called the Cove Bar anymore once it’s done.

Anyway, we ordered the Earthquake, Fun Wheel, Lobster Nachos, spinach and artichoke dip, and the Fajita Quesadilla Rolls.

 

The food was so good but we were stuffed after eating it. I think we ordered too much and we ended up eating most of it but not all of it.

We went on the Ferris Wheel (the swinging one) and California Screamin after eating (don’t worry, it was at least a 45 minute wait for California Screamin and a 15 minute wait for the Ferris Wheel). I heard that they were going to make California Screamin the Incredibles themed, so we had to go on that at least once before they re-brand it.  The Ferris Wheel is also supposed to be replaced with Pixar characters.

We went on a lot of rides after this, including going on the Grizzly River Run 3 times in a row! There was literally no line (probably because it wasn’t warm and sunny) but the ride was still fun! We also went on Soarin Around the World, Radiator Springs Racers, Guardians of the Galaxy, and a lot more! It was fun but the waits were long. Getting fast passes were a waste too, since you could only get one every few hours and the time would be for 4 hours once you get the fast pass.

We also ate a corn dog and churros at the park. That was our “snack” before watching the World of Color show. We got a great spot to watch it and I recorded the whole thing. I suggest going at least a half hour early to get a good spot. After all, it is holiday themed and I rarely get to go to Disneyland!

 

We were pretty much done after watching the show. We looked through the stores to buy some souvenirs. Then, we headed out and ate dinner at a sushi place!

 

Yes, there was a lot of eating out but hey, don’t restrict yourself too much while on vacation. You want to enjoy it!

The next day was pretty chill. I hadn’t gotten much sleep at all the few nights before so I slept in! Then, my sister and I went to eat Korean food. We got kimchi fried rice with cheese on it,  fried chicken, and kimbap.

IMG_4234IMG_4236IMG_4231

The food was delicious. I rarely eat Korean food and this was pretty good. I think the place was called Chan Chan’s. It’s in Orange county.

After, we ate ice cream at Cauldrons. It’s nitrogen ice cream! The cone is an egg puff but churro flavored! The ice cream had oreos in it. It was delicious!

 

After all the food, we went shopping at Daiso and TJ Maxx. Then, it was time for me to go home.

I had a lot of fun during my trip and at a lot of delicious food. It was a nice weekend get a way.

What’s your favorite ride at Disneyland?
