Check out Go Fit Girl’s new look

My IT/Webmaster consultant (aka The Husband who also answers to Curt) has done some tinkering with Go Fit Girl!

Let me know what you think of the new look, whether in comments or via e-mail to ann@gofitgirl.com.

Thanks to all of my faithful, occasional and new readers. You are all appreciated.
