Seeing results with healthy choices

I know that there are so many things challenging about the holidays. There is stress, overeating, over drinking … etc. But we can overcome a lot of that and stay on a healthy track. When I quit my job a little more than two months ago I thought the weight would fall off and I […]


Trying out HG’s miracle mashies

Since my recent “FUNemployment” beganĀ I have been trying to cook more. It’s not something I enjoy. But really to ensure I eat healthy (and not spend a ton of money) I need to cook at home often. Because I have more time to plan meals, look up healthy recipes online, shop and execute the deliciously […]


Undoing with new chapter

Life is a balancing act … believe in yourself … Leap and the net will appear. Happy wife … happy life. Today is the first day of what I am referring to as FUNemployment. I quit my job of nine years and yesterday was my last day in the corporate world. (The top two lines […]


Back to life, back to reality (and routine)

I have been on vacation for the past two weeks. Spent some time in Tucson visiting my family, resting and relaxing and celebrating my yoga school graduation and teaching my very first yoga class. The second week Curt and I headed to Amsterdam with our friend Jacob. The past two weeks I have enjoyed my […]


Cycling in The Netherlands

It’s a rainy day today here in Amsterdam. Curt and I are being lazy and lounging … sleeping way too late, but there is a futbol match tonight at 10 p.m., which will keep us up late. Plus, we’re on vacation so who cares! This is my third visit to Amsterdam and the thing that […]


Chihak cousins take on Austin

I spent 5-6 days in Dallas for an international trademark conference. I allowed myself to enjoy food and drink. And boy, did I. The day I arrived and Day 2 I hit the gym at the end of the day. And then the gym time went down hill after that. Late nights, early mornings and […]


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. […]


Yup, it was a challenging week

Well, what a week … I knew this past week would pose some challenges in the caloric intake department with food and booze and also with my regular exercise routine. What I didn’t count on was getting sick … AGAIN. Tuesday morning when I woke up I was exhausted. And I slept decently. I felt […]


Forming healthy habits

As I have talked about before, my company has a Wellness Program. Throughout the year challenges are created for us. Some of Go Fit Girl!’s Monthly Challenges are inspired by my work challenges. Though I do try to add my own twist to them. One of the challenges right now is to Challenge a Friend. […]


Take care, love you this month

This month’s Go Fit Girl!’s February Monthly Challenge is about the No. 1 person in your life. It’s not your spouse, partner, kids, parents, boss. It’s YOU. In honor of this month’s Love of Reading Month and that other silly celebration that happens in the middle of this month the Monthly Challenge is about focusing […]
