Hello all! Anyone thinking, "why Point.Five.Korean"? I know right! Okay maybe more like "WTF?" or "WTH?" It's an inside joke that captures a little bit about me in a way that's just my style. Is it grammatically correct? NOPE -- and neither am I! Is it profound, uber-intellectual, and mysterious? NOPE -- not that either. What it is, is what I am -- straight to the point with a little humor. I'm half Korean -- my super cute daddy met my super cute mommy in a little town in South Korean. They met, fell in love, and BOOM!! Three super super cute (more or less :-P... ) children with yours truly smack dab in the middle. Since I'm a numbers fan and math nerd, I see "half Korean" and think 1/2 = 50% = 0.5 Korean... and there you have it, Point.Five.Korean it is. So where's the inside joke? Well anytime I'm feeling particularly awesome, I will scream "Point.Five.Korean!!" as if I were a sports broadcaster announcing the winning goal in the final hour in the final minute of some sports game. Yup -- I've done this more often than I'd like to admit. Yep. Yup. Deal with it ^_^ Thanks for dropping by!
My Training Plan Update

My Training Plan Update

Are you training, or what? As school is starting, I can’t help but start to organize and plan all aspects of my life.  If it doesn’t get planned – it won’t get done! Part of that is meal planning and prepping, but a larger part is planning my training.  I’m still circling the idea of running a 5K race this winter, but haven’t found the “one” just yet.  I’m toying with the idea of either a Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas…

It’s Friday!! YAY!! But I’m melting

It’s Friday!! YAY!! But I’m melting

The heat wave continues here in NC — I’m literally melting.  Why do I even try to wear makeup?  The second I step out of my super air conditioned home, the wave of humidity and heat just melt my makeup right off.  Like a candle and a blow torch.  Seriously.   Anyone else have this problem?   Since it’s Friday, I figured I’d write about all the fantastic things that have happened this week and things that I look forward…

Thirsty Thursday— It’s 109 degrees, drink up!

It’s so hot and humid here in NC right now!!  I can’t believe how quickly the sweat starts pouring down my face and neck!  SICK!  GROSS!   Does anyone else hate the feeling of being super sweaty (when not at the gym?)??   Life here is returning to normal after my unusually busy and travel packed summer.  Fall 2017 classes have begun and I’m starting to settle into a routine.  My courses are all scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays…

Oasis VoxBox!

Oasis VoxBox!

I’m a youtube fan.  It’s pretty recent, but I’m all about it!  I love watching videos to learn new things — from make up tips, to recipes, to organizing my home!  It’s amazing to watch and absorb! One thing I learned about from youtube is Influenster!  Recently, I signed up and was able to get my hands on the Oasis VoxBox full of goodies! I signed up, answered a few questions, and a few days later this arrived in my…

Procrasti-nasty

Procrasti-nasty

At the eve of my next family vacay, I find myself cursing my past lazy self for not getting on top of the ToDo list!! In order to counter act my procrastination, I'll be running around like a chicken with its head cut off for the duration of the day and part of tomorrow. This has happened before and I think there are pros and cons to be a little procrasti-nasty. Pro- I'm super efficient when up against a time…

Jet lag is real…

Jet lag is real…

My body seriously cannot handle flights and lack of sleep or a changes in schedule.  This week, my average night’s sleep was about 4 hours.  Some nights, I got 6 or 7 hours of sleep and other nights I got 2 or less.   Needless to say the gym last night and this morning FELT AWFUL!  I didn’t feel like I was going to die or anything, I just felt WEAK and I HATE FEELING WEAK!   Does anyone else…

So Embarrassed — I want to die

So Embarrassed — I want to die

The other day, some of our friends were getting together to have a big fun day!  Lunch, rock climbing, bowling, movies, dinner, ice cream, donuts,… everything fun!   While rock climbing, one friend fell and really hurt her leg.  We scrapped our plans so that she could be taken to urgent care.  Turns out, our girl broke both bones in her leg!! HOW AWFUL!  She was totally tough though — and only ended up getting upset when she realized she…

Travel WOD’s?

Travel WOD’s?

In my last post, I alluded to the fact that this week I’m eating Wild and Free!  I also mentioned how this means I’ll need to stay active and sneak in some workouts to balance things out.  The easiest workout for me to do while traveling is running — so there will be lots of that — but to keep things interesting, I’ve done some research as prep work. Here are a few workouts I found that require zero equipment…

Macros while on Vacay?

Macros while on Vacay?

Vacations tend to go one of two ways with me.  I’m either hypervigilant with my eating — having a plan, taking time to track calories, and making sure to have healthy alternatives on hand wherever I am.  OR I’m wild and free.  In the latter case, I eat what I want to eat, when I want to eat, until I feel like I’ve had enough.  Some would call these types of days “cheat days” — but I call them “refuel”…
