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!
Just for Fun Friday!

Just for Fun Friday!

Just for fun this weekend — we’re balancing all the work we have to do with my three favorite things. Brunch I love breakfast foods! Hubby loves sleeping in on the weekend!   What better way to merge these to loves than with a Saturday morning brunch!  We’ve decided to go to one of our favorite brunch stops in the next town over — where their specialty is all things crepes. They have sweet crepes and savory crepes and the…

Thursday Things — I forgot to take pictures

Thursday Things — I forgot to take pictures

I forgot to take pictures! I can’t believe it!  Hubby and I completed the pumpkin carving challenge, but I don’t have any pictures!  We carved at a friend’s house and left them on their porch for decorations, so we have nothing to show for all our hard work. 🙁 It was super fun though — I carved up my side of the pumpkin in 3 minutes while hubby took hours and hours.  His side is way more detailed and perfect…

Weigh in Wednesday – 10/18/17

Weigh in Wednesday – 10/18/17

Weigh in time!   I only have a quick sec to update — because this week (like all of October) is crazy cakes…. but here I go:   My 10-day-best was 189.4 but my overall moving aver is 190.5, down from 192.3! As you can see by my individual weight in, I was actually lightest last Thursday — weird!       How was your weigh in this week?  

Tuesday’s Treats!

Tuesday’s Treats!

It’s 47 degrees here this morning!  That’s a treat in and of itself! To take advantage of it, I’m planning a few fun things for the day! Get moving Originally, I planned to run a few miles — but my Garmin died and needs to charge up first.  Looks like that’ll have to wait until later… maybe it’ll charge super fast and I can still go a bit later this morning (or later this week?) Last night’s Crossfit workout was…

Marathon Monday — It’s my Runniversary!

Marathon Monday — It’s my Runniversary!

That’s right — today marks my 1 year Marathon Runniversary!   Exactly one year ago today, I ran my first ever full marathon!!  I finished dead last and the race organizers would clean up the course as I passed!  *How embarrassing!* So many early mornings, hot runs, long runs, and exhausted rest days…   So many things went wrong: Streets were flooded due to Hurricane Matthew so the course was changed and re certified last minute Volunteer Teenagers that were…

Just for Fun Friday — I’m a zombie

Just for Fun Friday — I’m a zombie

For whatever reason, I could not settle my brain last night.  My thoughts kept leaping from one thing to the next without giving me a break to calm down and fall asleep.  I tried reading, watching brainless tv, sitting in the dark, counting sheep, and even some warm milk.   By 3 am I had tried everything — and even a grilled cheese sandwich snack — and was finally able to catch a few z’s.  Sadly, I was wide awake…

Thursday Things — Pumpkin Carving Challenge

Thursday Things — Pumpkin Carving Challenge

October is all about Scary Movies, Pumpkin Spice everything, and all things “sweater weather”.  October also means pumpkin carving and trick or treaters! This year, I’ve decided that hubby and I are going to do a “thing” — a pumpkin carving contest!   We’ve invited friends to join us — and they requested real rules to be written up.  So I have them below.   Who Carved it Better? Goal: Carve the best looking pumpkin this world has every seen…

Weigh in Wednesday 10/11/17

My weight this week: I was so pleased when I stepped on the scale this week and weighed in at 190.4.   That means its working!   What are we eating? We are still eating mainly from out Family Foods List — we’re just going to keep on going.   We haven’t been perfect — but it’s super encouraging that hubby is coming up with ideas for heathier versions of whatever he’s craving.   Meals this week: A few of…

Tuesday’s Treats — 10/10/17

Time with friends This week’s most favorite-est treat is going shopping with my friend!  We have to pick out gifts for a few of our mutual friends, so we’re taking an afternoon and making it happen.  I’m always so grateful for time with friends — as I feel that it helps me take off my Negative Nelly hat for a while.   It’s been really crummy here lately — as far as the weather goes — and something about life…
