Jari, Sylwia and Yoga: kicking off 2014

Having spent the last week racking out my brains for the perfect rotation to start off 2014, I decided to keep it simple.

Looking Ahead to 2014

So I have big plans for myself in 2014, including my journeys into health and fitness.  But I also have bigger things to address in my life that go beyond fitness and touch upon my overall well being.

Surviving the Holiday Season

Tis the season to be jolly...and round.

But not me.  I have a plan of attack to combat Holiday Season weight gain and it is more simple than you think.

Well so much for consistency

Just last month I declared my return to blogging about my adventures in fitness, but lo and behold...crickets.  I definitely need some accountability for my blogging habits.

But alas, I will attempt a return again.  Hopefully, I can share some reviews of my latest purchases, which include Focus T25 and some of the recent DVD releases from former Bodyrock host, Zuzanna.

Stay tuned!

I'm back!

It has been over 2 months since my last post, but this fitness junkie is back and ready for action!

I can the see spammers went out in full force, in my absence.

A revisionist review of JNL Fusion

If you are curious, I am in the middle of week 3 and still going strong with the JNL Fusion rotation.  While I still love this program, I do think the rose-colored goggles are coming off and I am seeing this program in a more objective light.

Back on the JNL Fusion bandwagon

Now that I can get back into consistently exercising -- goodbye Mus musculus! -- I have found myself intrigued at the idea of finishing a JNL Fusion rotation.  Can I make it this time?

Dealing with a Mus musculus

You might have noticed my absence from blogging for the past two weeks, but this time I have an excuse: my health and wellness is being violated by the presence of a Mus musculus.

My favorite individual workouts

Perusing through my blog history, I noticed that I tend to talk more about systems and programs than I do individual workouts.  Well, it's time for me to share the love for exercise DVDs that don't come with tape measures and eating guides.

Healthy, gluten-free, two-ingredient pancakes...and they actually taste good!

After having a moment of relapse in the midst of my "no refined carbohydrate" challenge for the month of February, I have rebounded with these fantastic pancake recipe I found online...and I am addicted!

Somtimes I just want a piece of bread...with cheese...and a latte

So I am already 2.5 lbs down while in the middle of carb-free challenge for the month February...but the cravings are relentless!

(Refined) Carb-free February

 Blogger note: this is part 1 in a series where I participate in a monthly diet and/or exercise challenge as part of a journey to improve my health.

I need a little Namaste in my life

Namaste: a common spoken greeting or salutation originating from India and Nepal. 

But I am specifically referring to the yoga show on the now defunct Fit TV.  Curse you, Oprah!

Sample the JNL style workouts

Lately, I have been gushing about how great the 30/30 format of circuit training is, based on the format of the JNL Fusion program.  Well, I thought I would share some clips of Jennifer Nicole Lee's workouts for those not familiar with her style of workouts.

30/30 and 60/30: my new favorite way to exercise

As promised, I will share with you how I am managing to exercise without fitness DVDs and creating my own circuit workouts.

Sayanora, video fitness!

After embarrassingly admitting earlier this week that I cannot stay committed to a rotation, I have another one to confess: I am not interested in doing exercise videos.  Blasphemous, I know!

My next rotation: best of both worlds

I'm torn between being a haphazard exerciser and wanting to fulfill my desire to finish a 90-day rotation.  Is it possible for me to do both?
