Review Wednesday holiday roundup

For at least the past five years (maybe a little longer) Curt and I along with our families have stopped giving each other Christmas presents.

We have decided we all have what we need. This helps to ease the stress of getting each other gifts.

So instead of giving to others we give to charity.

Curt and I still give each other small gifts, aka stocking stuffers.

Over the past two years GFG! has occasionally had Review Wednesday, where I review items for myself and my readers.

Many of the items I have reviewed would make great stocking stuffers.

I am going to do a quick review on the Fuller Brush, which would fit in a  stocking just great, before I summarize items in past Review Wednesdays.

Comment Contest Tuesday announcement

Thank you to everyone who participated in the most recent Comment Contest Tuesday.

The Comment Contest Tuesday was connected to Go Fit Girl’s September Monthly Challenge where GFG! readers were asked to come up with healthy ways to improve their lifestyle that they don’t have time for.

Recently in my yoga teacher training we are learning to ask ourselves What is important for me? What are my priorities? What do I want to make time for?

For the Comment Contest Tuesday I asked my readers to post their challenges and for others to come up with advice and solutions.

There were so many great comments. The best part for me was to see my readers to be so supportive of one another. It was beautiful and amazing.

It will take me some time to sort out the winners. Yes, I said, winners. This Comment Contest Tuesday has multiple prizes.

Thanks again to those who participated to show support to Go Fit Girl! I asked my readers to make a commitment to be … Continue reading
