New year, new beginnings... Constantly become brand new!

The new year is off to a wacky weather start!  It's been raining all day here in Shanghai, freezing cold in New York and the rest of the North/Midwest of the States, and there's nothing better than some "snuggle weather" songs. This playlist is actually the set list from Alicia Keys' November concert that I saw here in Shanghai.

Empire State of Mind (part II) Broken down

U don't know my name
Tears always win
Listen to your heart
Like you'll never see me again
A woman's worth
Try sleeping with a broken heart
You're all I need to get by (cover)
When it's all over
Mercy (reggae mix)
Un breakable
Brand new me
If I ain't got you
No one

New day
Girl on fire
Empire State of Mind

Please support her in the iTunes store!  

Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday, wherever you are in this beautiful world.

Happy New Year!

Today is the first day back at work, and I am very happy to see all of my students again!!

Our January fitness challenge has begun.  My students will be monitoring their fruit/veggie intake, sleep patterns, tech time and physical activity time for the next month, in preparation for the personal fitness unit.

If you'd like to join my fitness challenge, please email me at

The new year is always a time for people to set new goals, and I am very lucky to have the chance to restart and refresh three times per year (Western New Year, Chinese New Year, and at the start of the new school year).  That being said, I'm excited to announce that this year, I will be moving to my own official website.  For more information, follow me on Twitter @getFITwithFITZ.

There you can check out my own line of organic exercise clothing and gear as well as more information about my online wellness counseling services.  For those of you in the Shanghai area, I offer in home/hotel exercise classes, and wellness tours of Shanghai.

Thank you to all of my readers, and for all the positive feedback, especially on my top 5 posts of the year:

I wish you and yours a very happy New Year, and look forward to helping my clients live their lives to the fullest.
