About Me

I go crazy over a piece of chocolate. Good thing, I don’t get fat easily. I am a lover of freelance writer and a bookworm of my own definition. I love reading Conan Doyle for he brings me to a world where I can be the master of my own. In fact, I have made several thesis based according to his line of thought. However, when it comes to studies, I envy those who are doing well on their mathematical problems. They said math is easy, I believe it otherwise.

About Me

My name is Alezsandra and I live in London.  I've been married for almost ten years and have two wonderful children, a girl that's seven and a boy who is five.  My husband and I met at school and we've been together ever since, I'm very proud of that, it's almost unheard of these days.

 

I love cats and own a cattery and I think I have the perfect job.  I get up, play with cats all day and get paid for it.  Life doesn't get any better than that.

 

I'm interested in history and tracing my family tree.  I've managed to get as far back as the 1600s and I even have some royal blood running through my veins... very much diluted but that's not the point, it makes me feel important lol!

 

I like reading, swimming and pottering in my little garden.  I'm a "little" bit overweight and have just joined the Fat Loss 4 Idiots program to try and lose a couple of stone in time for my sisters wedding in November.  I've been doing all of the usual things, you know, pictures of very fat people on the fridge, chomping on carrots and the like.  I've also cut out all of the sweets and chocolate and go for a spoon of Manuka Honey whenever I have the craving for something sweet.  At least it's healthy.

 

So, nice to meet you all, I'm looking forward to being part of the community.

About Me

America's #1 Mind-Body Transformation Expert and author of 'Mind Your Own Fitness', speaker, trainer, lifelong martial artist, U.S. Marine, PhD in Psychology and amateur neuroscientist.

My martial arts background extends formally to the age of 5 and informally to my toddler years.  My mother was my first teacher back then, teaching me Kendo with a stick.  My formal training began in Okinawa in Goju (back in the 1950s) and with my Uncle Keiji in Japan (Judo and Kendo).  I love the challenges of the arts and in fighting in general.  The mind-body connection is strong and both must be accomplished in order to be effective.

Back in 2005 I was invited to teach at the 2nd Annual West Kenpo Confederation by Chuck Sullivan. It was a wonderful experience to be alongside one of Ed Parker's original blackbelts.
