Month of Magical Eating

Guest Post: LisaMy eating policies are generally sensible, and owe a lot to Mark Bittman: Lots of fresh vegetables Fresh fruits when they’re high in fiber and nutrients Vegetables and whole grains for breakfast and lunch, and meat for dinner maybe four days a week Little to no refined flour or sugar Protein-rich snacks like string cheese and […]


Staying on track with eating, exercise creates weight loss

Yea, I know I have sucked … at keeping Go Fit Girl! updated. But I have been awesome in my eating habits, exercise and weight loss. I have been pretty diligent in tracking my food and keeping it rather reasonable. I am just 2.4 pounds away from my goal weight. That is the closest I […]


Recipes can be modified to be healthier

Guest Post: Alicia, a third-timer! I’m a great baker, but the problem is there are only so many cookies, cakes, pies, etc. anyone can eat before their pants start to explode. All this means is that a girl has to learn to how to cook “normal” food, too. Cooking means saving money and calories from […]


Biking is fun, healthy, free and gets you where you need to go

Guest post: Cyrus, our second Go Fit Boy!Over the past few years, I’ve dabbled in various forms of exercise. There was the year of indoor rock climbing, and the year of racketball. There has been intermittant trail running and this past summer, frequent friendly basketball games. But lately, my most regular form of physical activity […]


Control portions to control weight gain

Guest post: Michael, our first Go Fit Boy! Did you know that when Coca-Cola was introduced in 1886, it was available only in 8-ounce servings? Both in fountain glasses and bottles, 8 ounces was it. Later, it went to 12 ounces, a 50% increase. Then up from there. Now, at convenience stores, you can get a […]


And the Go Fit Girl! / Go Fit Boy! award goes to …

… Jen F. Woot-woot! Thank you for all of the entries. They were all different and fun and cool and great. I really enjoyed reading them and seeing the comments. (All those who commented were thrown into a hat and a random person was drawn. And Jen was that random person.) Oh, and what does […]


Now you take a crack at it …

Today I am posting a twist to Guest Post Tuesday: Comment Contest Tuesday. It is your turn to be a Go Fit Girl! or Go Fit Boy! for a comment. You don’t even have to write a guest post. Your comment can be simple or complex. For example: I love ice cream!; I have abs […]


Bikram Yoga eases chronic pain

Guest Post: Jen C. Ten years ago a truck ran a red light, t-boned my Honda and left me to a decade-long battle with chronic pain. Both sides of my neck were whipped around, concentrating the pain in my neck and shoulder muscles–and radiating out to the connecting head, facial and jaw muscles. The pain is […]


Lisa’s workout: Just add water

Guest Post: Lisa I had surgery back in April–doctors went up my nose to remove a benign brain tumor that had been playing merry havoc with everything from my metabolism to my reproductive system–and naturally, there were side effects. Some were unpleasant, like having a stuffy nose and the spins for four solid weeks while my sinuses […]


Mall walking great alternative in summertime

Guest Post: Erica As you know, from a previous post, I loved to spin but chose to stop fairly far along in my pregnancy. I had to keep my heart rate below 140 and that pretty much meant sitting on my butt and slowly peddling along. It wasn’t fun so I decided to put spin on […]
