I have recently asked a friend to help me with my work out regimen he has introduced me to the world of DYNAMIC work out . Its working out with no machine or heavy weights . resistance is basically your body weight ! Less injury or strain to the body more reps though and its a killer work out ! Its the same work out system used in the reality TV show the biggest looser . The squats and killer lunges are just some of the routine one must do to make this work for you . Reason why I had to revamp was 1.) Im already going into palteau all the cardio I use to do has made me strong to the point all my routine's was not making me loose any weight , 2.) I was also gaining weight due to quitting smoking ( Its been 1 and 6 months since I took my last puff, some times Im tempted but I came all this way and i wont start again ! ) But lm luckier than most I've gained on average 8 lbs so far and some of it is muscle mass a Dr. friend told me that most peep's on average gain 15 lbs oh gawd forbid I go there !! 3.) My blood sugar level's are erratic and goes up on some day's , a normal level is 115 for some one in my age group and built , well I can hit 220 ( Ssshhhhh no one tell my mother .) Well its I guess age also ... But with the help of this new work out its helped lower the blood sugar levels and kept weight gain at bay ( heeheheheh Im a veracious eater ! Thank god Im not put on another diet cuz Im already following a no sugar , low red meat diet )

As you can see from the stolen shot ( You know who you are ) This is not an exercise for a wus !! Already I can spend 2 hours doing a spinning class or doing 2 hours of cardio 6 days a week . But yet my energy was sucked dry !! I was aching all over !!

Well its a good hurt heheheeheheh see you at the gym . Thanks to my friend I will get better and sexier !!

I have been tutoring a friend of mine recently for almost a month now lets call this friend Beatrice ( She swore me to secrecy !! She said she will hunt me down and shave my kilay and rats tail if I rant on her ..So hence the back ground blur and the non mention of her name ! ) She has a strong sense of love for arts and culture ... Oh also for pigging out with me !!

So todays lesson was " Translating from Mood boards to actual outfits . " I had Beatrice come up with 4 inspiration/ mood boards to help her style her look's . This where boards on fashion history influences so she had make boards on 1) Renaissance. 2) Victorian . 3) Grecian. 4) 60's . The look also has to be styled in a way that it can be worn by a " Real " person to a given event for this century ( challenging huh ? ) But this woman has a walk in closet of clothes that she hasn't even worn yet ! She has ton's of accessories from belts to boot's etc .... So she has the luxury of every stylist's dream but this is just her hobby collecting costumes and clothes heheheh !!

So I packed my kikay kit / Manni ( My body form thanks Jojo Mead I saw love her !! ) dragged my 2 intern's Tin Tin and Sher ( Who where both my students at LCI and have recently graduated from the fashion course ,) and crammed them and my stuff in the car . Beatrice had a hard time comming up with her looks due to the fact she's been so used to styling her self for photo-shoot's ... She has to learn how to detach her self and its still baby steps . Harder because she's using clothes from her archives .

Well true to Beatrice's form she asked me what I wanted to eat after tutorial's , with out a bat of an eye-lash I said singang head of salmon and anything chicken ( She's been on the same " diet " the whole week long and since she dragged me to mega to have singang head of salmon ... I have been craving for it my self ! She also prepared a side dish of chicken chorizo and tocino and boneless bangus ! This was such a perfect treat to end the day !! ( Ay wait I had another meeting at 830pm after din din ! ) When we where eating Beatrice pointed out to me that there was a chorizo that was oddly shaped !! Just check out the pic and let me know what you think !! Hay another day in the life of a creative professional !! We see humor in everything ... Now I feel the urge to create a collection for mens wear with that visual still in my head whahahahah watta inspiration ! Till the next blog Smoochies !!

Well here I am again the last blog I wrote was Aug of 2006 YIPES .... Trying to put my thoughts on paper! I'm not a writer so please don't point out to me the "flaws " you see ! I don't care about my typo errors / grammar / spelling ( Well I have spell check like most people do ! ) I write to rant and everything just pours out and I don't even bother to edit !! So if any one comment's " Your spelling sux!" or " Dude there are alot of typo errors ." This is all I can say .... Im ranting or raving on what i see , hear or eat !!! FYI I am NOT writing a thesis or term paper ! Im done with school this is just what I have floating in my head and I just want to spew it here !! If it bothers you ... You have the options to surf elsewhere .... Now to business.

Friends have been encouraging me to write my so called AVANT philosophies in life !! Hehehe " AVANT " cuz it's basically experimental ideas like my fashion sense ... Im still classic with a twisted edge like my take on fashion . I won't pretend to be a blogger .. Blame Colin Chan for my writing he suggested once to write down my thoughts because he found my ideology interesting , I forgot to ask if he learned anything ! Its been 5 years since I met Colin and Katsu and they are one of the few peeps that I consider almost close to family here in the PI . I'm sooooo blessed to have their love and friendship ...l And I bet you they NEVER had a friend like me in their life when I 1st met them !! I can still remember Kats cringing when I would say the " F " word .... Now she can swear like a sailor ahahahah !!

Well going back to my story ! Colin suggested I start writing my thoughts and philosophies on what I have learned in life ( How's that ? Im crazy, spastic, neurotic, confrontational and hard headed to top that all i don't mince my words, thats American education for you . ) But thanks to my up bringing i have kept the principles my parents taught me to this very day . I refuse to enumerate them I am not a an expert typist ! So this is how I set the foundation of my blogs .... Good luck to me least some one slaps me with defamation case ahahahah !! Thanks Col I took you up on your suggestion I hope I do you proud .... I hope you guys leave me POSITIVE comments .... Well Im wrecked ... Going to hit the sack now ... Will update my blogs soon !! Smoochies to all !
