Hi! It is raining and we only have high 77F (25C) today. It seems like the fall weather has come. The forecast says it won't be back up to 90s any more. I hate the hot humid weather but how sad... I haven't worn all my summer clothes yet :(

You know what!? I just joined a gym last Friday! Don't say that I'm influenced by Olympic athletes! (well... maybe a little though.) I have been there everyday since then, so I have sore muscles. But I realized I like to jog and work out! Hope I can continue like I cook everyday. I need to burn fat, and improve my strength and metabolism! Right now, I have a low basal metabolic rate, which means I am more likely to gain weight if I eat much.

Anyway, I lost the prize at Haagen-Dazs's contest. I thought my work is creative... The prize was gift cards for the ice cream, so I am sure that I don't need them now but I am dissatisfied with the result :(

Okay. Time to go to bed.
Good night!

  1. We have been hot here Ochi,
    August always hot here, supposed to cool down alittle, was in the pool over the weekend, nights still cool. So my pool is cool too!

    How wonderful you have the energy to go the gym. Very good for you!
    I could use it too, fat is sticking to me, I like to eat all my good cooking too much! Ha! Ha!
    I don't think my metabolism is burning at any rate at all!

    Sorry you lost your contest, I try to stay away from ice cream too! I love dairy queen soft ice cream!

    Also I love can salmon too, tastes so good. Glad you liked it, sounds
    great stuffed in mushrooms. We can get fresh, but I worry not too fresh here in stores, so I use a lot of canned Salmon! :)

  2. Hi jo!

    I hope summer comes back once more... It was very sudden to go away.

    I'm glad to hear that you could go in a pool again!!! I always think having a pool at home is like a celebrity ;) I wish I could have it someday!

    >>energy to go the gym
    Yes, but to tell the truth, I had a headache the first day :( I think I didn't use my muscles but my head and shoulders to do crunches... I have bad coordination, you know...

    Right, fat is sticking bit by bit, day by day!!!
    I think I gained more than 10lbs in 5 years, though I tried not to eat too much sweets :( This pictures my bad metabolism...

    I always don't understand the result of the contests! Sometimes very unexpected ones win!!! I know it depends on judges, but makes me depressed... But I believe my way, jo!

    I think I'm gonna get another can when it's on sale! It is pretty expensive here. Costs about $2.5 for 3.2oz can!
