In my mind I am healthy

Yesterday, which was Day 2 of back to healthy living, I realized that I already felt better. I was only on Day 2 of back to eating healthy and into my regular exercise routine. And it was already making a difference in how I felt. I think a big part of healthy living is mental […]


I need my routine!

The lack of posts have to do with many things going on in my life. Nothing major. Don’t freak out. It’s just life. Today I am going to talk about the BART strike, which is drastically affecting my life even though I don’t actually take BART to work. (For those of you who don’t know, […]


June Monthly Challenge: Greek yogurt, exercise routine & giving

All right, it’s time for Go Fit Girl’s June Monthly Challenge. I want to say thank you to everyone who participated in Go Fit Girl’s Comment Contest Tuesday. There were lots of great ideas for future Monthly Challenges. And I promise to use them in the upcoming months. But I did have some ideas already […]


Yawn … so sleepy

I eat fairly healthy and exercise regularly. I drink lots of water. But I feel tried most of the time. I don’t sleep well. I fall asleep just fine. Usually I zonk out on the couch while watching TV. But I wake up during the night. Sometimes just once or twice. Sometimes 5-6 times a […]


Being OK with change while taking care of No. 1

You may have noticed that my posts are not as frequent lately. It’s not that I don’t want to share my wealth of research with you or that I don’t want to share the posts I already have written and I just need to hit the publish button or that I don’t still love writing […]


A challenging Challenge

It is just bitching or is there some truth and necessity to it? I will admit I am having a hard time with this challenge. I have been super […]


Are weight-loss drugs safe?

If diet pills worked wouldn’t we all be skinny? I have always been leery of diet pills. I know as the new year is here some people may be thinking of taking them. Personally I would not take them.┬áBut if you do, please do your research. Some are dangerous. Some have some very serious side […]


Exercise, say no, buy toys and don’t gain weight …

And today we launch Go Fit Girl!’s December Monthly Challenge. December is a challenging month in all aspects of my life. So I am gonna guess that it is the same for most of my readers. The challenges this month are going to be a little different than the previous months. Exercise: Exercise 3-4 times […]


Just me, just you … trying to survive life

As I mentioned last week, I recently attended my 20-year high school reunion in my beautiful hometown. As a Badger alumni I had the option to be a sponsor for the reunion. So Go Fit Girl! was a sponsor along with a few others. With my sponsorship I received an acknowledgement on a banner, in […]


Epsom Salt … Take me away

Recently I have been taking some hard core body conditioning classes. Sometimes I do a double-header and take Will’s Total Athletic Conditioning class Thursday night and his 6:30 a.m. Total Athletic Conditioning class Friday morning. Yes, I am nuts. The last time I did that my thighs were in pain for at least five days. […]
