Gym Session :: 10/30/2011

My legs are a tad sore from yesterday's workout.. :) but decided to go with Hubby again since i feel so motivated!

I did back/shoulders today.. and some cardio again :) 


- High Hammer Rows (one arm at a time)

- Lat pull down machine

- Military press (dumbbells)

- Standing Bent over side laterals 

like mentioned, just walked on the treadmill for about 20 minutes and then that was pretty much it. Hubby took us to Santa Monica beach to catch some sun and to hang out :) we ended up eating lunch at Bubba Gumps which was a delicious treat! i was dead tired after this lol.. after hanging out for a bit, we headed home so that we could get everything ready for the work week for hubby and the school week for the kiddies and of course i had to prepare for my last final :)

Gym Session :: 10/29/2011

I know it's been ages since i've been to the gym - but with my bout of palpitations/chest pains during this pregnancy - I had to take it easy.. seems like they've subsided.. so i decided to get with the program and do as I said I was going to do, and stay active :)

Luckily, I had my biggest motivator take me along (My Husband) and here is what I did.

-  Barbell Squats

- Dumbbell Deadlifts

- Leg curls (machine)

- Seated Alternating Curls

- Hammer Curls

that was pretty much it - I also did 25 minutes on the treadmill.. of course i kept myself hydrated and rested when i needed to :)

Hubby and I went to dinner at my favorite restaurant :) date night! lol :p okay until tomorrow!

My Husband's Body Transformation challenge progress + Hydrostatic Body fat testing

Hi everyone! :) I know my last post about my husband was back in September (Post is here) 

Well i'm proud to say, My Husband has less than 30 days in his challenge (The Live Shredded body transformation challenge on , it's the home stretch! He made his first video (I recorded some footage and his brother also did some footage - his brother edited everything!) I'd love it if you all could please watch his videos, subscribe to him (although we are going to combine our channels later on), and please RT/share his videos on your facebook page, twitter or anywhere! 

This was his original First photo when i posted it back in September:
You can definitely see the difference in his back muscles :)

Here are his before pictures (when he started back in August 28, 2011)

And this is him 2 months afterwards (this pic taken October 22, 2011)

Here is his Official/Detailed video 

Thank you so much for watching it! :) Hope you "Like" it! <3

The prize for this contest is 10k, plus SOO many neat things (like a photoshoot, plus 2 year supply of supplements by the company that is sponsoring the whole contest.. and so much more)! I'm so excited for my Husband! I have so much faith in him that he can transform his body even more! thank you to everyone who RT'd my tweets, watched his video and just have supported us! :) 

He is actually going to have more videos since we're on the home stretch right now! and after the baby comes, i'm definitely going to do the same thing (especially if there is another contest like this on that website, i'm definitely going to join!) 

Thank you to everyone who has asked us questions on how to stay fit, lose weight (he's usually answering the male questions and i'd answer the women's questions!) so we really appreciate it! 

wish us luck! i'll keep you all posted on his next video!

My Beauty Social By Beautylish Experience

Hi Everyone! :) I did attend the Beauty Social By Beautylish this past weekend. It was an awesome experience and i'm glad i'm finally able to post some pictures. I've been busy with finals this week (two being today) so I was not able to film a vlog. If you guys still want me to, then just post it down in the comments below - otherwise, i'm just going to show you all some pictures of everything! (even of my goodies!)

So, it was a 2 day event, unfortunately I did not attend the Saturday session. It was my mom's birthday, and we had plans to take her out for lunch (and had an awesome time!). I brought my brother's Girlfriend Karen with me (as always! <3 her!) and we ended up making it to the VIP social just in time. 

There was a mixup with my name/her name not being on the list, but after much frustration and confusion, it was all figured out! (Thank you Romee and Nils for situating everything!) 

Since it was a VIP party, it was a much more intimate setting (literally - the lights were dimmed lol) but it was a beautiful venue. There  were a lot of people, but not so much that I couldn't find a seat. Luckily Sonia (SCCASTANEDA on YT/Twitter) Recognized me from previous events, and waved Karen and I over. She was sitting with Heart & Anne (yummiebitez). Karen and I had sat down with them and hung out for awhile. they had hors d'oeuvres - Since I was still full from lunch, I didn't have any. they were also serving wines and other cocktails, which I also did not have. I did however, have a bottle of fiji water :) 

I then got to hang out with Judy (itsjudytime), Julie (juliegbeauty), Marissa (rissrose2), and so many other guru's it was insane! I was so thrilled to have finally met Kandee Johnson in the flesh! she is SO sweet and smells absolutely delicious LOL!

I actually made it on Judy's (itsjudytime) vlogtober :) it was like 2 seconds - but hey - I was on it! LOL.. If you've never met them in person - they are ALL super nice! and just like you and me! easy to get along with, and i loved hanging out with them. 

here are pictures from the VIP social :)

Me & The Kandee Johnson! <3
She is SOOOOOOO sweet!

Lauren (Queenofblending) & I
she had dared me to wear colored eyeshadow on Sunday's event,
because I said I was so envious of her eyeshadow, and i'm afraid of color.
She really hunted me down! Lol :p 

Me & Leesha (xsparkage)
She is a doll! she was so cute because she was a bit tipsy!

Sonia (SCCASTANEDA) and me! 
I <3 her to pieces! 

The famous Christine (Temptalia) & Me! 

Karen and I stayed till it was finished and were kicking everyone out of the room because the hotel needed to let it's employees go home :p .. I was sad, but excited that I got to hang out with everyone that I wanted to - Saw everyone that I wanted to.. and just really had a great time! :) I did get a few belly rubs since people sort of noticed my ever growing belly lol :) 

Here are some candids :p 

Me & Marissa (RissRose2)

Sunday - Karen & I went as soon as it opened, went to set up an appointment for our CND Shellac nails. everything really did get booked within 30 minutes of opening! poor Karen didn't get to get her nails done because the lady who put her name down, put her name on the wrong slot.. and they weren't lenient at all.. so poor thing didn't get her nails done :( .. 

I got to see a few of the speakers present, most of the time, we were waiting in line to get something done (ie: lashes, makeup done at temptu, etc).. so didn't really get to mingle as much. I did however, see Sonia again :) and we kept bumping into each other (which is always a pleasure!) and before Karen and I had to leave, We saw Heart & Arnold. I also got to take a picture with Dulce (DulceCandy) and Cristeen (Cdiorme) before i left. I did have a great time hanging out - I did wish we were able to stay longer, because I did not get to see a lot of people that I wanted (like Hollyannaree!)

Waiting for our eyelashes to dry (just had them done at the lash bar)

My 1st time getting my nails Shellac'd! :p 

My Urban Decay glitter tattoo (this was on day 2)
supposed to last 2-3 days. 

Now on to the part you've ALL been waiting for! The Goodie Bag!.. I *think* there were two types of bags, one for VIPs and the other for regular peoples (like myself lol) .. So I'll admit I was bummed that I didn't get to get a VIP bag - (i've been supporting beautylish and had attended every single one of their LA events and thought I knew them pretty well) .. Mainly was sad, because I was really looking forward to the Sugarpill sample inside and the full sized clinique goodies.. but otherwise - I cannot complain because I at least got a bag :p and because I got some really amazing items :) that i'm happy to share with you all! It's also really neat to see what everyone else got :)

Update:: Video "What's in my bag"  added :) (was requested) 

Overall I had an amazing time, i'm so glad I got to see everyone I wanted to and hung out with people I'd been wanting to hang out with! hopefully next time i'll be able to meet more people! 

I loved it so much, I already signed up to be notified for next year! :) Did you go? what did you get? :)
