Exercising while on vacation

Another great thing about Club Med is there are activities for just about everyone. (And if your thing is to just lounge at the beach and drink, there’s plenty of that for you. That’s my favorite pastime.) Like most trips I brought exercise clothes with me. And about half the time they don’t leave the […]


Eating at the buffet

When you stay at an all-inclusive resort for a week that means you pretty much get all the food and drinks you can consume. As I have stated in the past (many times) when I am on vacation I enjoy myself. I don’t worry about what I am eating and drinking. And I know once […]


GFG! is going on vacation

OK, so you already thought I was on vacation, right? Every week I think life is gonna slow down and it just seems to get more hectic. This means certain things in my life suffer, such as regular exercise and blogging. And starting Friday I am on vacation. Curt and I are heading to Turks […]


Burning calories out on the dance floor

On Saturday night Curt and I went to a wedding, which was attended by a few other good friends. It was a beautiful ceremony and a great party. Free flowing sparkling wine and beer among some other adult beverages. I took part in wine, sparkling wine and water. I had some delicious lamb for dinner […]


No excuses

Monday was my day to get back on the healthy living wagon. No excuses. The cafe at work always has healthy options for breakfast and lunch. (Curt and I were out of town over the weekend so I didn’t have a chance to get to the grocery store.) Having the work cafe means I have […]


Back to healthy, clean living

Oh man. I feel like I have been writing these posts too often lately. I have been allowing myself to get out of my routine way too much recently. Yup, I usually have a good reason or “excuse.” And we all fall off the wagon and experience life. And sometimes I give myself permission to […]


I need my routine!

The lack of posts have to do with many things going on in my life. Nothing major. Don’t freak out. It’s just life. Today I am going to talk about the BART strike, which is drastically affecting my life even though I don’t actually take BART to work. (For those of you who don’t know, […]


Keeping hydrated with H2 OH!

One of the challenges in this month’s Monthly Challenge was to concentrate on water intake. Water is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Keeping yourself hydrated is a vital part of life. Water makes up 60 percent of your body weight, according to USGS. There is varying information on how much water each person should […]


Once again … back to healthy living

After more than a week traveling for work and fun I got back home last night. And today is the day I got back to my normal and healthy lifestyle. I was in Texas. First Dallas and then Austin. Dallas was for work and I thought I would add Austin to the end of my […]


Chihak cousins take on Austin

I spent 5-6 days in Dallas for an international trademark conference. I allowed myself to enjoy food and drink. And boy, did I. The day I arrived and Day 2 I hit the gym at the end of the day. And then the gym time went down hill after that. Late nights, early mornings and […]
