Rings of Power by Mike GIllette

Rings of Power by Mike Gillette Cool new book from Mike Gillette about Ring Training for all fitness levels. Being on this shoot with Mike was like working with a real live action hero! (And I got to put a cinderblock on him too!) Mike knows his stuff and shares everything you need to know for his versatile go-anywhere ring training.  Full progressions of every exercise, workout plans, and all the know-how to take the training as far as you wish. Good stuff, and yes, that's me on the left side of the cover  :)

Holiday

Simple Workouts that Can Travel with You Over the Holidays

Hope the season is bringing you maximum joy with minimum frustration!  Was just thinking about all the magazine articles and blog posts out there which will be offering up all the usual holiday advice for surviving feasts (or not giving yourself a hard time for indulging--that seems to be a new theme this year), and well meaning, but often over complicated holiday workout plans. 

I think the cliche of "no matter how slow you go, you're still lapping everyone on the couch" is a good think to keep in mind during the holidays.   Mainly, making an effort to stay reasonably active and keeping portion sizes reasonably appropriate.   One year, my folks and I were on different but similarly low carb eating strategies - and while our plates were just as full as everyone else's, the choices of what we chose to eat (plenty of meats, green vegetables, one small dessert) ensured that instead of passing out on the couch, we decided to take a fun walk on the beach.   We also didn't have that painful "omg I am going to explode" feeling either.   AND by eating the good things we wanted, and plenty of them, we didn't have to deal with anyone giving us a hard time.   They just failed to notice in our joyous heaping plates there wasn't any mashed potatoes or sugary items.  So this is also a great approach for side-stepping any "well meaning" passive aggressive attempts to derail your healthy life choices.  

Gift Guide for the Kettlebell Enthusiast in Your Life

It's notoriously difficult and probably annoying to shop for someone like me.   If I really really want something, that means I may have already purchased it, or its so exorbitantly expensive that I'd never even think to ask anyone for it.  Ever.   Pair that with the fact that for over a year I've been systematically getting rid of anything extraneous*, am excessively particular about what I'll voluntarily wear/eat/use and it's usually gift card city for me at Christmas.   Which is frankly, just fine with me!   Not going to send my relatives on wild goose chases, or request that they send me frozen Ostrich tenderloin (that would be really great, actually), or that one of a kind bag in the window of the local artists store that looks

The New Year is Coming - are you READY?! Holiday Sanity from GiryaGirl.com

It's been an exciting year so far - and I hope you all plan to make the most of what's left of 2011!  Just a quick note for you - since you've taken the time to subscribe to the GiryaGirl.com newsletter, I wanted to give you advance notice that there's going to be a big giveaway contest coming up (as soon as all the items arrive). Basically a gift box of many hard to find and/or unique items that regularly feature on the site. And loads of surprises. The item count for the gift box is 10 so far, and after running an internet-based retail business since 2000, I know how to stuff a Priority Mail Flat Rate Box to the gills. The contest will be officially announced here on http://www.giryagirl.com as well as on Twitter and on Facebook.
