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!

Challenge Day 4 — Holiday Party Oops

It’s Day 4 of my 5 day Challenge week — where I’m taking photos of everything I eat throughout the day.

no Fun for me this Friday!

no Fun for me this Friday!

That’s right, no fun for me today.  It’s Friday and I should be thinking about how much fun I’m going to have tonight and this weekend!  Instead, I’ll be stuck at work until 9pm.   BOO!   I’m actually not even mad, I have so much work to do that it’ll be nice to have office time to finish things up.  It’s cold, it’s rainy, and there’s not much going on — so why not finish work up tonight so…

Thursday things — I hate the Gyno

Thursday things — I hate the Gyno

Okay ladies– you know you’re with me on this. I hate going to the gynecologist. I know it’s the healthy thing to do — so I go every single year for my annual check up. But I hate it. Almost as much as I hate the dentist. Why do I hate it? First, they make you walk in and jump in a scale in front of all the other nurses. Oh my. 195.8 today with clothes and breakfast and stress…

Weigh in Wednesday — 12/6/17

Weigh in Wednesday — 12/6/17

This week’s Weigh in — 189.0!    AHH! I had stepped on the scale the other day and was still reeling from that 195 flashing on the scale.  Last Saturday I was 192.6 (up from 189.4 just a few weeks ago).   What went well this week? This week, we stuck mostly to the meal plan and I used the new Weight Watchers Flex/Freestyle! Packing my lunches for work was a really good idea — and the Big Ass Salads for…
