Veganuary

January= VeganuaryVeganTM_col

I can’t believe it next Sunday is already February. How did it happen? That’s just crazy.

But the first month of New Year isn’t bad so far. My Jawbone fitness bracelet died after Xmas, but I’m truly blessed with wonderful husband and I have Fitbit now. Still not sure how I feel about it tho, but I like the display part 😀

I joined Veganuary (people going vegans for month of January) and I was pretty surprise how many people joined the group… fingers crossed that most of them will stay vegans. Yay J Go vegans!

So far I managed to work on my story ( I’m 3 chapters in) and I’m keeping up with my workouts, the eating habits are still an issue, but I’m working on it too 😉 So let’s see what I did so far:

Benchmark workout it’s like a fit test in ZGYM and I must say it was a KILLER! I must be crazy but I’m looking forward doing it again in February to see if I improved.

Peace and love, G.

December 2014 with update

December Calendar

December 2014

And we almost have a middle of the December, Second Advent is behind us and we almost have Christmas and we won’t even realize it and this year will be over soon so let’s try to make most of what we have left. 🙂 And let’s not leave all resolutions just for the New Year and maybe we can have earlier start.

I’m not really once a year only resolution person I’m trying to get better on daily, weekly, monthly basis. I’m trying to improve myself and my life so I can be happier and better version of myself the day before. 😉

But if you like to make New Year’s resolutions for 2015 please consider going eco-friendly, choose vegetarian diet or even vegan. Your body and our planet will thank you for it. 😉

I like this month – Holiday season- Christmas movies and carols, but what I don’t like about this time of the year is the craziness – some people go totally mental – they are forgetting that this time of year is not about the presents and food …it’s about time spending with family. And another thing is the shops – another mad house- shops are closed like for 2 days and some of the people think that they will starve or something – please remember people working in the shops also deserve holidays! – Time to spend with their families! Two days ago I noticed on Morrison that they will have opened also on Boxing day and New year’s until 5pm – so I think I won’t be shopping in that store again – obviously they don’t care about their employees! That’s just sad. 😦

I will try this month not to get suck in into this madness and I will try to be positive and jolly! Fingers crossed.

November 2014

November Calendar

November 2014

So first half of the month is already behind me … I can’t believe it! I’m checking my personal organizer (no I’m not Filofax fan or any other leather diary fan) and I’m way behind from last month, but I’m going to step it up this month!

I’m back in London, slowly adjusting and settling down and I’m back to my training. First week I was more or less just catching up with sleeping and putting this place in shape. But I’m back and I’m also back to Zuzka Lights workouts… I just missed the high intensity and the challenge. So good bye Body Beach Workouts! Welcome back Zuzka Light 🙂
Zuzka recently changed or updated her site and first week of November was also free look into her ZGYM, so I wrote down her workouts and I’m completing them one by one …. so far I love every single one, but that’s not a surprise.

For now I’m also limited with my equipment, I have of course my speed rope and I have 8kg kettlebell, but I’m planning to update my collection before end of the year.

Week 1 in my ZGYM

Body Crush 1 aka ZWOW 117 – 11min and 44 sec
JRC X 1 (Jump Rope Cardio) – worst jump roping ever! way too many interruptions and ZERO double unders
Power Yoga 1
Body Crush 2 aka ZWOW 118 – in 15 min AMRAP I did 1 round and 10 Side Lunge Jump combo
Tabata 1 – new one – I was keeping up with Zuzka

Week 2 in my ZGYM

Body Crush 3 aka ZWOW 119 – 11 min and 50 sec
JRC X 2 (Jump Rope Cardio) – killer cardio but I did better than last week and I even tried double unders, managed 2 solid ones
Power Yoga 2
Body Crush 1 aka ZWOW 117 – beating my personal best!
Tabata or other workout

And the following week I will be doing similar workouts. I will be updating before end of this month.

November Update:

Week 2 in ZGYM

Tabata or other workout  Cardio Shred 1 : 16 min – 2x3kg dumbbells & 8kg Kettlebell

Week 3 in ZGYM

Body Crush 4.: 14 min and 25 sec
Cardio Shred 2.: 14min and 5sec – 2x3kg DB & 8kg KB
Power Yoga 2.
Day off
Body Crush 2. : 2 rounds – 4 Push ups ( next time I’m going for full 2 rounds)

Peace and love, G
