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. […]


Keeping hydrated in warm weather

Being from Arizona I have always known how important water is to stay healthy and hydrated and safe. (Ever heard of heat stroke or heat exhaustion? That stuff is real.) And now that I regularly drink at least 64 ounces a day (but usually more–today I have consumed almost a gallon of water) my body […]


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. […]


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 […]


Go Fit Girl! is thankful/grateful for many things

Today is Thanksgiving and I have many things to be thankful and grateful for. This list is just some of the things Go Fit Girl! is thankful for. (If it was Ann … it would never end.) I am thankful and grateful for: Yoga. Meditation. Setting intentions. In-Shape City Gym and teachers: Jenn, Jessica and […]


Can you drink too much water?

Years ago when I lived in Phoenix and worked at The Arizona Republic I was a unfairly unhealthy person. Having a job in newspapers makes it difficult to have any sort of healthy lifestyle. I think that was also when I had my (regular, packed with sugar) Vanilla Coke addiction and I would troll the […]


Chugging water, practicing yoga

I meant to write this post on Monday. But this has been a crazy and exhausting week. OK, how are you non-Facebook Go Fit Girl’s Monthly Challenge participants doing? There are 21 people participating in the Facebook event. One participant let the group know that she recently took a CPR class and was told my […]


Let’s play a drinking game … drink more water

One day on the shuttle bus on the way to work I said to one of my co-workers/friends, Let’s play a drinking game. Every time I drink water you drink water. For some time now┬áI have been encouraging him to drink more water. I mentioned this story to another co-worker. She said she wanted to […]


Rockin’ customer service

I have been using Camelbak water bottles for a little more than two years. The first one I owned just had a lid. It was a little difficult to drink out of because of the wide mouth. But nonetheless I liked the bottle and how easy it was to take to the gym, when traveling, […]


Adding a little flavor to that drinking water

OK, so it is looking like this week might be a water theme. Maybe. I forgot to mention in my post last night that when I exercise I drink about 16 oz. of water. That is in addition to the roughly 80 oz. I get in on an average day. When I was doing Weight […]
