5 Best Fat Burning Moves + My 1st ever Inversion!
New video! It’s my 5 best fat burning moves in 5 minutes! Ugh. I did not want to film this video. But we all know HIITs are good for us, so I did burpees for you. Enjoy 🙂 My 5 best cardio moves are:
1. Star Jumps
2. In n Out Donkey Kicks
4. Mountain Climbers
5. Split Squat Jumps
Now…Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely Easter Weekend! Let’s have a lil recap shall we?
It started off with a trip back to the Bay! Friday, I visited my sister at Crunch and she taught me how to do an inversion for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE!!! LOOK!!
I was sooooo scared. See, if you know me, you’d know that I can’t handle roller coasters, heights, or being upside down. I really didn’t want to do this but after much coaxing from certified yogi sis Jackelyn…I shocked myself. I could do a headstand!!?? Yes, I am assisted by a wall, but nonetheless…I never ever ever thought this was possible! A reminder to you to stop holding yourself back from doing amazing things. We all have it in us! We just gotta let ourselves go. Once I get this down, I will do a video with sis to show you how to do it too!
What other yoga moves or poses do you want to learn?
The next day Jackelyn and I surprised mommy and daddy with a lovely lunch at Espetus Churrascaria for their birthday! (They have the same one but are a year apart.) It was their first time at a Brazilian Restaurant and we all had so much fun eating and eating and eating 🙂 Over the years I have taught myself how NOT to die of “bloatation” from a buffet! I used to go and just stuff my face to “make my money’s worth.” Haha, I think it’s an Asian thing you learn as you grow up. But now, I eat what I want and appreciate the sheer fact that I can eat VARIETY. A little taste of this and a little taste of that. So good!
Speaking of so good…this Brazilian cheese bread is the death of me. I love it. Let’s just say that Saturday was YOLO Day and we made the YOLO gods proud 🙂
Sunday I biked to a nearby flower field with my mom and we had so much fun doing an impromptu photoshoot! The fields were blooming with millions of mustard plants and the yellow was MESMERIZING! My mom and I even french braided flower crowns.
Now I am back in LA and ready for a whole week of work before my first magazine cover shoot next week and…a Maui trip!!! Yes yes 🙂 I am shopping for tropical clothing and bikinis like a crazy person and I love it. It will be my first vacay in a LOOOONG time and I’m taking you with me to see the sights and the beauty that belongs to the islands. Don’t worry – you’ll still be working out with me as we begin MAY! What should we call the calendar by the way? Any ideas?
Ah! And I have a REALLLLYYY cool giveaway that I am doing with Quest!
