about me

Hello all and welcome. My name is Joanne Rondilla, but my workout friends often call me j-ro. I'm your typical, more-jiggly-than-not, thirty-something who has a love-hate relationship with exercise. This is where I record my workouts and thoughts about the ups and downs of health, beauty, and other musings of a modern day woman who has a brain and isn't afraid to use it!

In real life, I wear many hats. Scholar. Writer. Educator. Fathlete Enthusiast. Daughter. Sister. Aunt. Loving friend. Awesome girlfriend. Living in the San Francisco bay area, but originally from the island of Guam. More left than right. More dark than light. Caramel over chocolate. Beef over chicken. I eat all my veggies. A good laugh over burpees any day. Red velvet cupcakes make me smile.
