This year I was only able to go to Hmong New Year for 2 days. My family always tries to go at least one day all dressed up in Hmong clothes. A majority of my outfits are made by mom and usually my sister and I go dressed up in matching outfits. I paired this with a white pleated skirt.

Took a picture with my favorite Hmong singer- Maa Vue. Her performance was by far the best at the Yellow Diamond New Years Party. There was so much detail and thought put into the performance. You can’t really tell in the photo but it was raining and super windy this day. It was the only day I had left to go so I still braved the weather and wore my Thai outfit since I wasn’t able to wear it last year.

I also spent the day in the rain looking for cute hair ornaments to match my outfit. Next year, I am going to try to go more often. I also have a DIY project in mind so stay tuned! I can’t wait to start and show you all my finished product.

Fight the Fat! The Beginning of my Fitness Journey

Today is Day 5 of PIIT 28 1.0! PIIT stands for Pilates Intense Interval Training and is a workout program developed by Cassey Ho from Blogilates. I watched Cassey’s Youtube videos for about 4 years and was interested in buying and trying PIIT 28.
PIIT 28 is composed of 28 workouts with each workout lasting 28 minutes and 40 seconds long. If you include the warm up and the cool down stretches it should take about 45 minutes.  Personally, I was trying to find something that was less than 1 hr so that I could incorporate it into my everyday routine. The only time that I can work out is before workThis requires me to wake up at 5 AM and originally I was dreading to wake up so early. The first couple of days were difficult, but now my body has adjusted to waking up that early.
I would highly recommend finding a workout partner or at least someone to hold you accountable. My cousin and I call each other in the morning to make sure we are working out instead of laying in bed.
At Day 5, I already feel more energized, flexible, and stronger. I noticed during yoga today that I completed more poses with less modifications. For me this fitness journey is less about losing weight and more about toning and getting stronger. I wanted to be consistent and more active. I can’t wait to see my results at the end of the month and will continue to post updates.
