Review Wednesday: Chico Bag

I try to be an environmentally friendly person.

We recycle, we compost, I shop with reusable bags, I rarely buy bottled water and instead have a Pur water filter on our kitchen facet where I fill up my Camelbak water bottle regularly.

Late last year I became an owner of my very first Chico Bag. I now have several.

The bag rolls up into itself into a small pack, which is easy to carry in a purse, backpack, glove compartment, etc. When opened up in full it becomes a good size sturdy bag. And according to the tag on the bag the Chico Bag can carry up to 25 pounds.

I like to carry the Chico Bag in my purse for unexpected shopping trips or when I don’t have my reusable bags.

I usually have two in my purse and have even lent a bag to a friend.

You can find a variety of Chico Bags in Go Fit Girl!’s Amazon store. There are a variety of bags to choose from like this one and these and even these.

Probably the only negative that I can think of is germs. That is likely the biggest … Continue reading

Review Wednesday: Camelbak water bottle

I have been using various Camelbak water bottles for years.

I like to call mine an adult sippy cup. The water bottle with the built-in straw for some reason makes me drink more water. I have a 16 ounce/500 mL bottle, which worked just great for me.

A few months back I decided to get a 24 ounce/750 mL bottle. And I have to say with that thing I drink even more water than I did before.

I monitor how much water I drink (well, to a point). My goal is to get in at least eight servings a day. After that I usually stop counting.

Most days without fail I hit that goal and beyond. But there are still days where I struggle. But that’s me not the water bottle.

The only negative with the bottle is that it is a pain to clean. You can buy the official Camelbak bottle cleaner at Go Fit Girl!’s Amazon store.

At first I just used a cotton swab to clean the inside of the nipple and used a regular bottle cleaner for the inside of the bottle. Then one of my co-workers told me she bought a baby bottle … Continue reading

Review Wednesday: The Tye

The tye.

I first discovered this hair tie at my regular yoga studio, Namaste.

They come in fun colors and are inexpensive.

I have a lot of hair and the tie holds it pretty well.

During any sort of yoga class, hatha or even during an aggressive yoga class it stays in place. In a more active cardio class I had to repony tail it up. But to be fair I have to do that with my regular black hair bands.

I was told by someone who has thinner, finer hair that it works well for that type of hair as well.

While not wearing it in the hair you can wear it around your wrist and looks like a fun bracelet.

After wearing the tye in all of my hair I can put it on my wrist and soon after it goes back to almost its original size.

I pretty much always have hair ties with me. I have so much hair and there are times I need to just get it out of my face.

Along with the black hair ties around my wrist you will sometimes find the tye around my wrist as well.

These would … Continue reading
