Cassey Ho knows how to make fast fab abs, but this Dispo must melt the flab!

Even though I’ve scored a strong core, how can I show it off when the muscles may lay beneath fat layers?

Now I have both Blogilates official DVDs: the Original & Flat Abs Fast!

As I’ve done many techniques to tone up my tummy and slim those obliques, I’ve added this newest DVD to my mix:

 

I swear: I have more than enough exercise moves from Blogilates to last me all year ~ I must make the time to do them!

Cassey Ho took this ab blast to the beach!

This packaged deal promotes 3 10-min. routines:

  • Total core
  • Lower back
  • Obliques

HBD to my Uncle Dr. Rudy!!!

When my Tito’s daughter/my oldest cousin, Melissa, got married (exactly 12 years and two months ago today and exactly two weeks after I graduated from McMurry), I spent the ☼morning☼ of her nuptials running in the Maryland rain!

Ate Mel's Wedding

Wayback Wednesday: I can’t believe that back then, I thought that ruching made me look fat ~ it looks fab#PrettyInPink

Those  were the days when I didn’t have to ~ as Milli Vanilli (whose ½ of the duo would’ve turned the BiG 5-0 almost three weeks ago) would ♪sing♪ (or lip-sync) ~ ♫Blame It On the Rain♫ … BEFORE my crazy cold after I chilled on the chili Corpus Christi beach during my business trip.

Even though I myself am NOT a bride, that isn’t stopping me from wanting to stay in shape during wedding season, and most of all, when I defend my dissertation and graduate this fall. Check out my fave fit babes‘ workouts to get wedding-ready for those of you who are about to walk down the aisle or have another important upcoming event:

Addendum

As I work on my stats scoring manual, the timing couldn’t have been better as this special delivery arrives to my door …

My Doctor graduation regalia!

All the pieces together … They’ll all fall into place as long as I finish this chase/complete this race & keep a happy face! #FutureDoc #DISPObustAFlow

I must be as excited as a blushing bride because I just received the gown that I’m wearing on my BiG Day!

Wong Fu Wednesday: Everything Before Us

Today is THE DAY!

Wong Fu Productions officially has released its first full-fledged feature film, Everything Before Us!!!

Watch this world with DEI (Department of Emotional Integrity)

This cool crew of artistic Asian dudes (starting with Phil Wang, Wes Chan and Ted Fu) and babes have created a slew of shorts, skits and vlogs that millions of faithful viewers, including yours truly, have enjoyed ~ especially for me, the ones about exercise:

DISCLAIMER: These are bound to crack you up!

In everything before their movie, they’ve established emotional connections, especially comic relief, and even some serious stuff…

They’ve featured some of my fave music and on-screen peeps, including Jen from Head to Toe and even the guy who plays the dad (Randall Park) on Asian sitcom, Fresh Off the Boat, as well as have cast diverse ~ consisting off, but not exclusively Asian ~ actors, like the gentleman from a Super Bowl XLIX commercial. Therefore, some folks can give credit to Wong Fu for their big breaks!

Here Wong Fu addresses about their new flick’s FAQs:

I was happy to check out their live chat:

… And just stay in the loop as they gave us the scoop from the very beginning of making-the-movie:
