Day Two

Wow. That exercise yesterday only took me 20-25 minutes to complete, but this morning, my deltoids and bum were really sore. Below is the regimen my friend gave me (with just a few exercises that I like added in). Continue reading

Startline Line

Whenever I googled for weight loss stories, it was somewhat informative, albeit a little boring, to read about what they had eaten and how they had exercised that day.

Jieun is excited to hear that they agree and turns to them, only to do a double-take when she sees that that their faces look like squids.
