Gym yoga teacher sub gig

Last night I taught my third yoga class, but my first gym yoga sub gig. A friend of mine who I work with and lives in Alameda helped me get this sub gig. (She is also a yoga teacher.) She knew Alameda Athletic Club was going to need a yoga sub when the regular yoga […]


Challenging myself and you

At the launch of the new year I made a decision to not continue Go Fit Girl’s Monthly Challenges. At least in the temporary as I had to give up something in all the things I have going on. That being said, I am still trying to occasionally come up with a quickie challenge here […]


Winners have challenges, post advice, solutions

Thank you to everyone who participated in Comment Contest Tuesday, which was part of September’s Monthly Challenge.

Review Wednesday: Fitbit Zip

About two months ago I got my first Fitbit. I have the Fitbit Zip. It was a prize I won for participating in my company’s wellness program. The Fitbit Zip (along with the other two mentioned on the website) tracks steps, distance (in miles) and calories burned. They sync wirelessly to computers and my iPhone […]

Planning for my week

I work hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It’s a choice I have to face every single day. And part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is planning. Planning is a big part of my success with clean living. (I plan out meals and my exercise.) Sunday mornings are my normal day to hit the grocery. […]


My fitness competitiveness comes out

Sorry that I have been a little absent lately. Work has been nuts. Tuesday and Wednesday I had to come home and do a little work. So really by the time I was done with that I had no interest in blogging. Let’s just say I am glad this week is almost over. I am […]


Yoga is constantly challenging me

I attended my regular Friday night Forrest Yoga class. Man, that class is intense. Such an amazing and sweaty workout. I made some new discoveries with my practice today. While in Dolphin Pose, Kristin gives us the option to do Dolphin and then two variations of Dolphin, each a level higher than the next. I […]


5, 7 & about 4

So last week I talked about how I just had 5 pounds to lose, which doesn’t sound like much, right? I hadn’t weighed myself in about a week and soon after that I weighed myself. I had 7 pounds to lose at that point. Women tend to fluctuate with weight. So who knows. But anyway, […]
