New Years Resolution!!!
Top 10 Tips To Success

January can actually be the toughest and most depressing time of the year to set resolutions. It can really bring up a lot of familiar feelings of failure, shame and guilt.
Unless you've been really good the whole of Christmas (in which case no one will want to speak to you anyway!), your body will have a real hangover. After a few weeks of drinking too much alcohol and eating lots of sugar -which are really quite addictive - it takes time to rewire your brain and your blood chemistry to get back to being clean and lean again. Approach cutting back in a gentle way. You need to give yourself a mental break.

It's really important that this doesn't become a miserable experience. Don't go cold turkey with your diet. Eat foods that nourish your body and make you feel good, rather than a steamed chicken breast and some dust. Try to give your body a break from alcohol and excess sugar. Eat fruit, nuts, seeds that will still nourish you without making you feel deprived

It's horrible to waste food, and we're programmed to feel sinful throwing it away. But all those sweet Christmas leftovers cannot serve any purpose now. Don't let guilt force you to eat it all; just get rid of it. Bring Christmas cake into work to share with skinny friends you don't like... Give it away if anyone else wants it. If they don't, throw it in the bin.

You make the decision to eat biscuits and chocs when you buy them in the shops, not when you take them from the cupboard. Don't buy them in the first place, and follow the golden rule: Never go food shopping hungry.

Falling off the wagon is feedback, not failure. Think of this as a process - it's an opportunity to change your life for good, not just for a couple of weeks. If you do overindulge or fail to exercise when you promised you would, don't be too hard on yourself. It's part of learning how to get it right. 'It's easy to say, "I knew I'd never stick to these resolutions,"' and to give up. But don't despair. Pick yourself up and carry on. 
Think of how a baby approaches learning to walk. They fall over constantly but never give up. Learning to eat and exercise in a different way takes time. You need to keep trying until you get it right. Without wanting to be too dramatic, it really is a matter of life and death.

If things are going to pot, sit down for 10 minutes and figure out why you want to get fit or lose weight. Is to be able to play with your children in the park? To stay healthy for your family? Look for the reason you're sticking to your resolutions. If you want to lose weight to guard against obesity-related illness in later life, perhaps think about the people in your life who love you, and who you love. Whatever drives you to stay healthy will help motivate you.
In order to stick to the resolutions, writing down why you're doing them is a powerful and important part of the process. Make a list of the goals you want to achieve and the reasons why, and stick it somewhere you'll see it regularly, like on the fridge. It'll help you stay focused and avoid impulsive moments, like reaching for a doughnut.

Evidence shows those who exercise with a friend stick at it much longer than those who go it alone. Find a pal to walk with, run with, or play a sport with like tennis, badminton or squash. Or join a team - you're less likely to cancel if you know there's someone else counting on you.
Or the best chose, Join Zumba and burn up to 1000cal in one hour! :)
or Even Better BOKWA or new trend for year 2014 PILOXING..

Whatever your goal may be, set yourself steps and stages to achieve that will help you on your way. So if you'd love to run a marathon, break it down into stages. Start by walking every day, move up to jogging, then running. Gradually you'll get closer to your goal.

It's fine to think realistically, but it's important to do something that inspires you. If your New Year's resolution is too boring, there's a danger that it'll never happen.

Viveca Jensen
What is Piloxing?


Longing for a high-energy workout that will pump up your confidence and give you a sleek, sexy and powerful physique?

Meet Viveca Jensen

Jensen is the CEO of the Piloxing Academy and V-Pilates studio in Burbank, California. The celebrity trainer, who has an extensive background in dance, Pilates and body building, is a fave among fit-seeking celebs such as Hilary Duff, Heather Morris, Kirsten Dunst, Vanessa Hudgens and more. Her studio has been featured on ET!, The Insider, The Doctors and Hollywood Live, while she and her Piloxing workout have gotten accolades in several magazines, including Shape, O Magazine, Women's Health, Fitness Magazine, Elle and OK!. Jensen wants women to get enviably fit bodies, but her mission is also to inspire women to feel powerfully feminine on the inside, too.

What is Piloxing?

Piloxing is for the woman who is looking for an exciting workout that shreds calories, delivers core strength, creates lean muscles and leaves her feeling empowered. "Piloxing is a fitness program that blends the best of Pilates, boxing and dance into a high-energy interval workout that incorporates interval and barefoot training to burn maximum calories and increase stamina," explains Jensen. "At the core of Piloxing is the principle that women are powerful and can [boost their self-esteem] by taking charge of their own health."

Why try Piloxing?

Once you try it, you'll be hooked. Not only has Jensen crafted Piloxing to burn calories and tone muscles, the fitness pro designed the program to make women powerful — physically and mentally. She says, "There have been times in my life where I’ve been put in a situation which made me feel weak and let down, so my mission through creating the Piloxing program was to empower women and let them know it’s OK to feel strong and beautiful in their own skin, even in times when we don’t feel so strong or confident."

Piloxing moves

Jensen shares three of her favorite Piloxing moves.
Boxing Side Jab

Boxing side jab

This move strengthens your core muscles and trims up trouble zones, such as your triceps and your back at your bra line. (Good-bye, back fat!)
  • Start position: Start from guard position, fists by your cheekbones. Plant your feet outside your hips, knees bent.
  • Movement: Using your core muscles, jab to the right with your left arm, twisting your hip inward and lifting your heel as the jab goes across your body. Return to guard position and switch to the other side.
  • Perform: 32 jabs on each side.
Pilates Leg Lift

Pilates leg lift

This move targets your thighs, glutes, core and arms.
  • Start position: Center yourself and slightly bend your right knee. Tighten your core and hold your arms straight in front of you, in line with your shoulders. Lift your left leg, keeping it straight, to a 45-degree angle.
  • Movement: Do slow lifts (pumps) with your arms and straight leg, bringing the leg up toward 90 degrees on the lifts. Tighten the quads (front thigh muscles) on the leg that's moving.
  • Perform: 16 lifts each leg.
Cork Screw


This move targets your glutes, outer thighs and core muscles; this is all butt and outer thigh. As always, you need to engage your core. Scoop your abs up — never let those abs muscles drop down toward the floor.
  • Start position: Plant your right forearm on the floor with your elbow under your shoulder, bent at a 90-degree angle. Use your left arm to prop yourself up and keep your body stable. Bend your right knee.
  • Movement: Raise your left leg to the side and make small circles forward, then reverse the circles, using your core muscles. Make sure your abs are engaged during the entire exercise, with your belly-button pulled back toward your spine.
  • Perform: 16 circles forward, then 16 circles back. Switch legs.
The PILOXING System ($80) includes three 50-minute rounds of body conditioning and cardio plus two 15-minute power-sculpting workouts. With the DVDs, you'll also get a pair of weighted PILOXING gloves, a nutritional guide and a 60-day calendar that will help you organize your workouts for maximum benefits.
