New rotation (and one that I plan to actually stick to)

This probably seems cumbersome, but I think I can finally stick to a rotation.

Weekend updates

I just came back from a day of splurging on some yummy food, but now it is time to get back on track.

Only 5 more days...

...until my Metamorphosis program arrives!

Review: Lebert Equalizer

Despite some major setbacks in my family life (I might share later on the other blog), I have so many things to look forward to in my own little world of fitness.  The new Tracy Anderson Metamorphosis program should be shipping this week, and first thing tomorrow morning, I start a new rotation that includes circuit training with my Lebert Equalizers.

My new take on rotations

With a little help from the alcohol in my system, I have been able to make some clarity out of my current rotation problem.  Yes, that's right....alcohol makes you smarter!  Duh!

I'm weak and lack willpower

I'm sure this comes as no surprise to anyone, but I caved and purchased Tracy Anderson's Metamorphosis program.  Instead of being upset with myself, I have just come to accept that impulsivity, particularly when it comes to purchasing fitness-related items, is my downfall.

I hate Tracy Anderson and Shaun T!

Ok, I don't really mean it when I say I hate them--I just lack willpower.  You see, both of them are conveniently releasing new material right around the same time I'm trying to stay focused about not buying any new exercise DVDs until June.  Aaarrggh!!!!

I feel a major case of DOMS on the way...

...and I have the TRX Suspension Trainer to thank for that.

Lebert Equalizers and rotation challenges

As I look to my left, a pair of beautiful, new Lebert Equalizers stand in my view.  Now only are they amazing, but they are shockingly light weight, easy to store, and extremely easy to assemble.  I am having a hard time wiping this goofy grin off my face every time I seem them, and quite frankly, I don't want to.

It shipped!

Brushing off the negativity of this morning's post and concentrating on the positive (it is resolution #6.1 after all), I just received some great news.

This is the last time I make New Year's resolutions!

I've been making New Year's resolutions for as long as I can remember.  As a kid, I did them because the adults told me so.  As an adult, I do them because of my childhood indoctrination.  Unfortunately, New Year's resolutions are just like Lent--unnecessary and pointless.

Late Night Inspiration

So I love, love, love, love, love, LOVE Turbo Fire!  Did I mention that I love Turbo Fire?  Ok, you get the point, but it's nice to see I'm not alone when it comes to my love affair with the best cardio conditioning program...on the planet!

While spending another late night session of perusing Youtube (Did I also mention I love the word perusing?), I found a really cool video.

So far I am winning the battle...but have I won the war?

I'm only on day 3 of my 4-week rotation, but I have still managed to overcome the injury to my trapezius muscle and stay on schedule.

My first rotation of the year

As promised, I am sharing with you my exercise rotation from January 10th-February 6th...

Screw my trapezius, I'm doing this anyway!

So after taking an afternoon nap and spending most of my day sitting around, mopping in pain, I decided to get out of my tiny studio apartment and clear my thoughts.


I think I have received a wave of bad karmic energy my way since blowing my #1 New Year's Resolution only six days into 2011.  Not only did I just blow my first New Year's , but I might have to postpone my other resolutions due to a recent injury to my trapezius and rhomboid muscles.

Rant: Only 6 days into the New Year...

...and I already broke my number one fitness resolution.  I guess this is one of the downfalls of being a vidiot.

Musings in 2011

As briefly touched upon in yesterday's post, 2011 will be the year I plan to blog consistently.  You see, I have been blogging since 2004, but I've never had the motivation to stay on track.  My 2010 odyssey into health and fitness has not only given me something to be passionate about, but FINALLY, a reason to blog.

Happy New Year!

Edit: I just realized I have 11 New Year's Resolutions, and repeated #6 twice!

As clich├ęd as it may sound, I am starting 2011 with a list of fitness-oriented resolutions.   Just like previous years, I made similar lists and failed to come through.  Why is this year any different?  I am changing my outlook as to what fitness means to me.
