Starting the new year with Insanity

January Workout Schedule – Insanity Round 2

I already started my new workout schedule! I was planning to start 1st of January but because it’s in the middle of the week and not on Monday when I usually start with the workout plans. This time is Sunday my first day and Saturday will be my rest day (because on this days we usually shop so it’s busy day for me).

I started with Insanity workouts again. 29.12 I did my first Fit Test again and I was killing it. I wasn’t hoping for such a good numbers after more relaxing weeks during December, but I’m very pleased with my scores and I have no idea how I will manage to beat the numbers next time.

First week is behind me and so far it feels almost like a first time I did the workouts, but I’m able to push myself more and I almost not taking any extra breaks. I’m loving the crazy cardio workouts but I’m not big fan of cardio recovery … looking forward to cardio,core & balance and month 2 workouts (fingers crossed that this time I will get trough the second month).

I still need to write down my measurements (this time into the calendar so I’m not searching for them everywhere like crazy). I will try to wear my heart rate monitor every time and maybe even write down my calorie burn for the workouts (if I finally find out how to do it).

Happy New Year 2014

Happy New Year everyone! May 2014 shine bright and fill your lives with health, happiness, prosperity and success!

New Year – Fresh Start

The New Year is a great time to add some healthy habits into a daily routine. And I’m not talking about New Year’s Resolutions. I don’t do those! Most of them don’t last past January and if they do mostly they end up shortly after. Why? Because you are setting the resolutions on what you should be doing instead on what you want! …so there is not much commitment or real motivation there. And again its holiday season you are in good mood you think you can fly at this point but after the holidays usually reality checks in again and you are busy with your life more and more….

Yes New Year is perfect time for fresh start…. Everything what happened or didn’t happen was LAST year. So stop thinking about that this year is another book in your life, now you have again 365 blank pages a front of you  so write them like you want…day by day.

If you want to change your life this year write down the goals you WANT to accomplish not that you SHOULD do! Write them down and put them somewhere where you can see them. Make visualization board which can inspire you to accomplish them. Be positive! Be patient! And believe that YOU CAN DO IT!

Make changes which will make YOU happy! Yes you can dream big but remember that nobody is perfect! One bad day or one small mistake doesn’t make the entire week bad and it doesn’t mean that you should quit completely.

For most people it’s new year beginning of new diet so why not try plant based one. Start with one plant based meal a day – for example breakfast and continue with lunches and dinners. Or start adding to your meals more and more fresh produce and then swap one meal to just plant based one. And if you see the benefits you can adapt vegan lifestyle. These days it is not so hard anymore. You can find many vegan substitutes for your previously favorite meals. Give it a try. You will feel better, you will look better. You will do something good not only for yourself, but for the animals and planet too.

Happy New Year everyone!

Please make some steps towards cruelty free lifestyle! And go vegan! Believe me you will feel better.

Peace and Love, G.
