Bringing Your Heart Into Backbends

As a yoga teacher challenges can come up in a class you hadn’t planned for or expected. Last night my friend Sandra and I co-taught a beginner yoga class, which is part of the Summer Series fellow Deep Yoga teacher graduates and I are involved in. We taught a beginner backbend class, which we titled […]


Positive experiences in a jar

So I said in my Happy New Year post that I wouldn’t be posting GFG! Monthly Challenges each month. But I would post occasional challenges on the Facebook Challenge page. This is a┬áchallenge I am doing for myself for 2014. And I decided that more than Facebook Challengers needed to know about this one. Throughout […]


Learning to let go

In February I wrote about having a tough time with work and life. In that time I was striving to learn to let go. It is much more difficult than it sounds. There is a great poem called Let Go, which one of my yoga teachers (Vickie) shared with class at the end of a […]


Comment Contest Tuesday: Challenge Go Fit Girl!

I was thinking about this month’s Monthly Challenge and how I am not super jazzed about it. And based on the participation and minimal updates I am guessing GFG! readers feel the same way. It’s difficult to come up with exciting challenges for exercise and nutrition every single month, which I have been doing for […]


Challenge yourself

Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do. I stole that quote from my friend Nicole’s Facebook status. She was quoting her kid’s basketball coach. She said it was inspiring for her yoga practice. Lately I have tried to be more open minded with myself when it comes to exercise. There […]

  Go Fit Girl! is excited to announce two new features coming to the blog starting this month. GFG! is launching Review Wednesday and Monthly Challenge. Review Wednesday: I will review a product once a month on a Wednesday. If you have suggestions for items you would like me to review I would love to […]


Sweating with the yogis

I realize my blogging has been minimal lately. I am either too lazy to blog or too busy. One extreme or the other. No fear–I will get back into my flow, soon, I hope. Because tomorrow is a holiday, today it was a half day at work. So I worked from home. Because of my […]


Just for me

I took an extra long weekend with having Friday and Monday off as well as Saturday and Sunday. I gave myself an extended weekend for a variety of reasons: I needed to get stuff done I don’t have time for in my spare time; I wanted to do some de-cluttering on our storage unit and […]


Tackling stairs and storage unit at once

I am taking an extra long weekend for myself and just to get some stuff done. I went to our storage unit yesterday to continue with my de-cluttering project. When I first arrived it appeared worse than I thought. But once I started working on it I realized it really wasn’t that bad. For some […]


Making goal while biking at work

Today was Bike To Work Day. At least it was in the Bay Area. Did everyone have Bike To Work Day today? I did not bike to work today for many reasons, including I live more than 20 miles from work (I don’t think you can ride your bike over the Bay Bridge); I would […]
