New Year's Resolution? I'm still on it!

Howdy folks? Yes sireee bob!! I'm still on a roll. I am blogging regularly now and I have also kept my promise to myself when 2011 came. I promised myself to keep my workout routine and lose weight in the process.

I have been working out since December 2010, way ahead of the "New Year's Resolution" phase, just so that I can say that my workout routine was not developed because I made a New Year's resolution. It is something that I decided early on so I can continue when everyone else that made their resolutions starts dropping off from the gym.

It's nice to know Jake Gyllenhaal takes the train like regular people.. :)


I saw this image on one of my favorite blogs and I really couldn't verify if it was indeed Jake Gyllenhaal. He does look a lot like Jake if he isn't the real one. And if he isn't the real one, I would still like to meet him.. :)

I love Jake Gyllenhaal. I recently saw Love & Other Drugs and I thought he was so hot!! Well, it didn't hurt to see him naked a lot as well during the film... his body is rockin'!!

If you haven't seen it, there was a photo (GIF animated) of Jake during one of the scenes and I'm sure you would like it.

View the animated photo after the jump....

Brazilian model Bernardo Velasco - Sizzling Hot!



I must have been hiding a rock somewhere to not have noticed Brazilian model, Bernardo Velasco. I usually am pretty good at spotting beautiful guys with maximum male beauty so I apologize. I have been hiding under a rock!

Anyway, the features of this guy is impeccable. Not only does he sport a gorgeous smile, he's got the magnetic personality that one cannot ignore.

I have been away from blogging for a while (again!) just because I've been busy with a lot of stuff. I am trying to get back into school again and I will probably just take online courses in order to finish by early next year. I only have 10 classes to take and I should be done!!

Done.. done.. done!!!

I just want to walk on the aisle with my graduation gown on. That would be the ultimate experience for me.

In the meantime, as I head back to burying my face in my books - - enjoy Bernardo Velasco!

Video below as well at the end of the post.

Still on the road to fitness after two weeks? I hope so.

You haven't dropped off the gym roster just yet have you? You are still showing up with gusto and doing your "promised cardio workouts", three times a week right?

We all have our ups and downs when it comes to working out. The very secret that I discover is simply to get myself all psyched up to go to the gym. It actually helps a lot because now, I actually get excited when I go to the gym. And when you start seeing results (i.e. losing weight, getting muscle mass), you get more excited to go the next time.

There are ways to get excited and lots of ways to improve your performance at the gym. I follow a fitness trainer on Youtube and so far, all the workout routines that I follow are based on his training tips. You can find online fitness sites that offer free fitness programs and routines that would help you get back into shape.

Just remember, it takes at least two weeks of steady workout before you see results. Don't give up to easily. Once you see the first few pounds drop, believe me - you'll be encouraged to go back for more.

I've been going to the gym steadily since December and have followed through. Now, I am more excited than anything to press on.

Hope you all are feeling the same!

We all need a little help sometimes. :)

I know. We all want to look perfect. We want to obtain that Maximum Male Beauty look and we work hard, we work out and eat well to look and feel our best. It's no longer an option, it is a lifestyle.

There are many things we can do ourselves. If we want to bulk up, we lift heavier weights. If we want to tone up, we lift lighter weights. Losing weight? Do cardio. These are the basic things that we understand and do so that we can feel better and look better.

But there are certain things that we can use a little help on. What if you do your cardio and you lose the weight you intended. The side effect is that you lose fat on your face as well and you start to look older and haggard? You may be able to avail of what they call Sculptra Maui. It is a treatment that is FDA-approved to restore your youthful appearance. That would be a treatment you might be interested in.


How about sagging skin. There is also a procedure labeled the Liquid Face lift Maui. It is an outpatient procedure to help you return the contour of your face gently without surgery. It is to enhance, restore or shape your face.

Lastly, the most common procedure (even Kim Kardashian gets this treatment regularly - without anaesthesia!!!) It is called:Botox Maui. It's a series of injections to certain points in your face to reduce or eliminate age lines and wrinkles. Some of us are luckier than others where we don't really get lines until we are really old. But some of us get wrinkles as early as the age of 19-years old. Although it is not a permanent procedure, it is still may be of interest to you if you have unwanted wrinkles on your face.

Why are all the procedures succeeded with the word Maui? Because the procedures are all available in Hawaii. If you happen to vacation there, it would be the best time to get the procedure done and come back not only feeling refreshed but looking refreshed as well.

Like I said, we can all use a little help... sometimes.
