Do a Photo Shoot with Photographer Michael Vincent

In less than 24 hours, my sister and I will be in L.A. Whoo-Hoo! The BIG day is finally approaching. I started off my morning today at 5am. I went straight to the gym to work out. I ran the treadmill for about an hour - loved it. It felt so good. My final 2 minutes I increased my incline so that I can do a hill sprint @ 8 mph! I really thought I was gonna puke, but I didn't - YAY for me! My appointment with the photographer is Saturday at 3pm in beautiful West Hollywood. If we have time, my sister and I wanted to stalk Rob Dyrdek and Big Black! I LOVE them! We even 'googled' their home address!! LMAO! Anyway, I've thought long and hard and changed my mind about the 3 looks I had originally chosen. I figure - might as well just wing it and see what they have for me. I'm most definitely sticking to my 1940's Pin-Up Model theme. I just got to remember my them black and white 40s high heeled mary janes...sooo cute! I'm hoping for a safe drive down to So. Cal. Wish me luck...HOLLYWOOD here we come! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Yesterday afternoon, I went to to the Blood Center of the Pacific in Millbrae to donate plasma. After 2 hours in there, I was getting extremely drowsy. When I got back to work, my co-workers noticed that I wasn't acting the same. I was very very quiet. Once I got home, I had dinner and then went to bed and watched 'The Biggest Loser'. Pissed - I fell asleep before the elimination. When I woke up this morning, my face felt all swollen and my eyelids felt heavy as if I had absolutely no sleep. I looked into the bathroom mirror and saw big dark circles under my eyes....OH NOOOOOOOO! With my shoot 3 days away, I really hope it goes away. Not sure if its the loss of blood/plasma in my system....Guess I should look into the side effects online. GO AWAY DARK CIRCLES!!

6 More to Go!

I weighed myself this morning and since I've started my diet on New Year's. I've lost a total of 14 pounds! Whooo hooo! 6 more pounds to go and then it's time to really tone up big time.

Once I reach my 20 pound weight loss goal, I'm most definitely going change my way of living. I'm already learning how to eat right. I'm going to start a brand new fitness routine - maybe add Martial Arts or Boxing on top of my daily exercises. I want to stay in shape like forever!! I realized that exercising is FUN! Besides, it relieves tons of stress so I'm barely moody now (I think).

Nails DID...

So, yesterday, I had my whole pamper appointment at my normal spot in San Mateo. I got my wax (aka whack if your Vietnamese), pedicure, and for the first time acrylic MANICURE!! Whaaaat! The last time I recall having my fingernails done was let's see - SENIOR PROM back in 1996!

I could not function afterwards. I couldn't open my wallet. I couldn't even remove my eye contacts properly when I was getting ready for bed. It literally took me 15 minutes to finally get them out of my eyes last night. I was seriously about to cry. I really got to hand to to those ladies that wear these plastic things 24/7. They ARE hardcore!

Now, I'm at work struggling on my keyboard. Do I type with the nails or do i type with my finger tips? I couldn't even unbutton my pants to use the bathrooom nor could I even open the container of my low-fat strawberry yogurt. Booo! Sucks to be me right now.
