[Fitness]: Conclusion after 1 month  

See? I'm really trying hard here!! I'm posting only one day after my last entry! Although I have to disappoint everybody who was expecting a Japan related entry. If you're only here for that you might wanna skip this entry! (^-^;)
So, as some of you know I've been talking about working out and stuff a lot lately and Twitter followers probably already know half of what I'm writing here.
It's been a bit over a month since I started working out seriously and I haven't skipped a single workout yet. Yay!~

I'm quite slim, always was. I've been feeling very good. No sudden health problems. No sudden cellulitis. No sudden weight gain. NOTHING!!!
So why would I suddenly wanna start working out?

Also 1 month ago I stumbled across a website called "". It's actually quite popular and well-known in the fitness (online) world.

The website is completely free and is run by a married couple. The guy is behind the camera and she's doing the workouts in front of the camera.
Her body is amazing (apart from her silicone boobs *coughs* and maybe a bit too many muscles for my taste) and so I guess a lot of people are motivated.
They put up videos on Youtube of her working out and also explain each workout on their website. If you want to know more about it, just check out there website.

More about useful websites and can anybody help me out with some yoga advice??!! )


Nyattou!!!! Awwww!!! I love natto (explanation: fermented soy beans are called "natto" / cats don't say "meow" but "nyan" in Japan, thus "nyatto" *lol*).

Alright, that's all.
Wow, that was long, but that's what I get for not updating in such a long time. And there's more to come!! The question is just WHEN [insert crazy laughter here]!!
Thanks for reading and now post away!!~

[Life]: Fitness and healthy food  
Hello everyone!~

This time I need your help/advice again. My head is spinning like crazy after reasearching the internetz for the last 2 days.
I think I've mentioned this before but I wanna do something to get fit (not fitter, but fit at all) again.
I don't really wanna lose weight, but I wouldn't mind losing 3kg or so, of course. Not more because I'm quite slim anyways and too skinny is not good either

There are several problems, though.

1) Motivation.
The thing is that I feel healthy and like I said I'm also quite content with my weight.
I mainly need to improve my fitness in general and wanna get a nicer shaped body.

Well, so .... what I came up with by myself so far is that ... )

This is a little somthing I bought recently.
It's called "calorie scan", but .... )

Completely random in-between photo: Hello Kitty grape gum (found @ Lawson) - normally not such a Kitty fan, but that was just too cute!

Thanks for reading and I really hope I have some people on my f-llist who exercise and can help me out a bit here!!
Remember, I don't wanna exercise insanely and a lot, but just improve my general fitness - thus it should be a doable schedule and something that's also a bit fun - otherwise I'll drop it soon again.
I'm somebody who tends to put her efforts too much into something (lil perfectionist here) and forgets everything else around her. Sometimes it works (e.g. Japanese studies), but it's not really a good thing I think.
Thus I wanna try doing a bit of everything instead (exercise, cooking, studying and photography) and see how that goes. For somebody with my character that will be tough!!!

P.S.: Am off to watch "Hotaru no Hikaru" now (will finish season 1 today). I haven't had time to watch it any earlier, but I always wanted to watch it as people kept telling me how awesome it is and it IS!!!!
Hotaru = me (apart from the beer, I guess XD)

That's all for today.
