This week: The Vegetarian Challenge

This was meant to be posted last week but once again I failed.

Vegetarian challenge was a success! It is actually more work than I thought so I did fail on doing the push ups and sit-ups.

Whatever! I endured the lack of protein and constant flatulence.

I didn't have a prize for my work but I am going to California this Thursday. So, maybe that's a prize.

Stay tune as I unveil my plan of doing the master cleanse... oh lord
You are looking at the proud owner of Guerlin Homme. The smell is divine! It is said to be inspired by Mojitos, which is just perfect since I just ended my drinking hiatus.

I am still trying to figure out the reward for this week. How hard is it for a rice consuming asian man to cut meat as his diet? Actually, really hard since I just realized I love my eggs, spam and vienna sausages. Right now, I am searching for my grocery list. You know it is really awful that I use google to create my vegetarian grocery list. Oh well, at least my life is expanding.

To add a little excitement I am adding other things to the mix
-Vegetarian challenge
-4 times in the gym -- since i have trip coming, I have to be in tip top shape
- Shop for a shrink -- why am I putting this in the back burner? this needs to be resolved.
-400 push ups - Yes we are stepping up a notch
-200 sit ups

Too much? Maybe not.

Guerlain Homme.. here I come

I need one more gym visit (5 mile run for breakfast) and 65 more push-ups and I will be a proud owner of possibly the most orgasmic cologne I have ever encountered.

For next week, should I justify a big ticket item since I am running a marathon? Let's see.

Also, a reader commented that my blog needs a makeover and Tyra needed to intervene. You know, I really this "rough around the edges" feel. It goes to show I am not trying hard to please anyone. But it wont hurt it Tyra tried to intervene and give this baby a makeover hahhaa.

The challenges will get more ridiculous as the week passes, so stay tuned everyone. And by everyone, I mean you Katie Martinez hahahahahahahaha

New challenge of the week: Guerlain Homme

Last week's challenge was a success!! I am now a proud owner of a micro running short, just in time for spring running.

Anyway, this week is a little challenging since this week's item is a little pricey. I went to Sephora today and fell in love with this amazing cologne called Guerlain Home. Yes, very high-end but I do need to treat myself sometimes (ergo, this blog).

Now, this week challenge entails not only tightening your belt, but also a test on pushing myself to my physical limit. Upon completing this challenge, there is no question the scent of victory will be sweet:

Item: Guerlain Homme $66

- Go to the gym at least 3 times this week
- 300 push-ups
- No money spent on Breakfast for 3 days

Wish me luck

Challenge of the week: Spend $0 until Thursday -- Item of the week: Shrink

I started to craft this idea of fusing my gurl-on-a-budget status with the concept of delayed gratification. Basically, A challenge comes every week (or two) about saving money that would then rewarded by spending it. Pretty stupid, you might think. But this is a good exercise on separating needs and wants. Am I ready to make sacrifices in order to achieve this one item/service? Well, I don't know the answer.

So without further adieu, let me unveil the item of the week:

ITEM: RUNNING SHORTS (Amount: probably around $30)

The challenge - Do not spend money until Wednesday. This means you may need to pack for lunch and breakfast

Updates will be posted soon
