Music (and Youtube) Obsessions: Music and Comedy edition

I’m going to need a new name for this segment soon.  Sure, I still use Youtube to listen to music but I don’t as much as I used to.  Between movies and blogging and everything else in between, my other part of life is watching gaming videos on Youtube and watching Youtubers with their little shenanigans that entertain me a lot.  So, I just couldn’t not share it.  Last time, I shared The Whisper Challenge which was a ton of fun. We’ll switch it up a little this time and intertwine funny vids (that I had a good laugh) and music that I keep replaying! How does that sound?

Just a note: The music will vary in genre and style.  We have some country, some latin, a cover and electronic.  As for funny clips, its mostly from two challenges over at the guys who did the first Whisper Challenge.  Its rather silly but I like it a lot.  If you didn’t like the first one, then don’t bother with it.  While I also added in videos from my favorite Hong Kong comedian since I found some videos with English subs and they are done pretty well so hopefully you’ll enjoy it! 🙂

Let’s give that a go and have some fun! 🙂

Take Your Time- Sam Hunt

I might have posted up Sam Hunt’s performance on The Ellen Show months ago but I really like this video.

It’s All About Perspective! – Dayo Wong [Stand-up Comedy]

La Mordidita – Ricky Martin feat. Yotuel

If you didn’t know, the place where I do Zumba classes had this Flash Mob thing at a shopping mall.  Unfortunately, I had plans already so I couldn’t join but I finally found the song for the routine that I love the best because of it.  Didn’t know it was Ricky Martin but its super fun.  I can’t help but do the routine when it goes on. This is officially stuck in my head!

The Whisper Challenge #2 – Markiplier, Wade (LordMinion777), Matthias & Jesse

Cheerleader – Pentatonix (cover)

I’m not a huge fan of the original of this one but Pentatonix does a great acapella version of it.  They are truly amazing!

Employees and Employers – Dayo Wong [Stand-up Comedy]

Tomorrow is Today -Jack Howes ft. J-HYPE

Finish My Sentence Challenge -Markiplier, Wade (LordMinion777), Matthias & Jesse

There’s not much else to say! Hopefully you enjoyed it, either liked the music.  I tried to keep it upbeat for the most part.  Or maybe you enjoyed the comedy and had a good laugh.  I’m sorry if it didn’t but comedy is subjective.  I always say it but I still wanted to share! 😉

Happy Friday, my lovelies! Have an awesome weekend!! 🙂

What song has been stuck in your head?

Week 28&29: Challenges Completed!

Its hard to believe that I’ve committed myself to working out for over half a year already. Lets see how the last two weeks was!

Early September, I decided to challenge myself and joined the 30 day Fitness Challenge.  That means to complete 11 different 30 day challenges to complete that one challenge.  Afterwards, I wanted to get a full body workout so I matched up the 30 day Arm challenge and the 30 day Squat challenge.  To see the post and update, you can check it out HERE and HERE.

Both the challenges ended yesterday! Lets take a look again at what it was 🙂

1) 30 DAY SQUAT CHALLENGE

Squats were supposed to be the easy part in all this.  Some other Tribesports member had written that they lost inches off their hips and whatnot.  I didn’t do a before after but I can tell you that my leg muscles are definitely more defined and less fat, in general.  Still quite far from slender but I think we’re on the right path.  For the workout, its really straightforward.  I do not own legs of steel or anything so by the time we got into the 200+ reps (maybe even 180) I had to start splitting up into certain reps and giving myself 20 seconds of rest in between.  I have to say that I’m proud to complete this, to start from the rather easy 50 reps to a crazy hard 250 is definitely an accomplishment in my book. The fact that I even keeped at it during my weekend away and even if it meant coming home at 11pm and doing it at the crazy hours of midnight, it showed discipline. Something I felt that I might have lost as I started feeling like I’d lost motivation.

2) 30 DAY ARM CHALLENGE

As proud as I am of finishing the squats, I felt even better about completing this one.  I seriously thought I’d give up on this but I never did. Despite doing dragonboat, I have a much stronger core than I have arms.  Especially since I had been training on the right side, my left side is totally weak and has very little muscular endurance.  When I first started this challenge, the tricep dips started getting challenging by Day 6 and the push-ups (normal full body, not modified/girl ones) were difficult from the start.  Pulling into Day 30, its been amazing how my upper body has gotten really muscular.  I can actually see the contours of muscles when I move my arm and even muscles that I never thought existed are showing up.  Plus, not to mention that I can now do 3 sets of 20 pushups and 3 sets of 30 tricep dips.  I have to say, this is quite impressive.

For all of you wondering whats up after this? I’m taking a day or two of break to rest up my body.  As I have been working on upper and lower body during these challenges, its hard to just jump into another 30 day commitment.  I’m going to go back on my random workout routines from Tone it Up, Pumps and Iron and a few other sites I follow and some individual workout challenges in Tribesports for a week or two before I go back into it.

I did learn something about myself during this month.  As much as music is extremely motivating to have when working out, many hours of it was spent watching (and listening to, when doing push ups) TV series.

During the next two weeks, its going to be deciding what 30 day routine to do next 🙂 I’m thinking abs but maybe I’ll change my mind! Who knows, right? For now, I’ll stay proud of myself and just enjoy some spontaneity and more intense workouts!
