And once again it’s time to Fall Back

So twice a year I write about time change. And we are upon that time once again. For most of us in the U.S. we will Fall Back on Sunday at 2 a.m. Many of my readers are from Arizona, so this post doesn’t apply to you as much. But I think the suggestions I […]


Learning over the weekend

Over this past weekend I attended two 5-hour yoga workshops. There were supposed to be three, but unfortunately the Friday Fibromyalgia yoga workshop was canceled. I attended the two workshops at Piedmont Yoga Studio. Piedmont explains a little about the workshops: Adaptive yoga is the tailoring of the practice to people who are not “sick” but […]


Can the breath cure hiccups?

I recently got the hiccups. I decided to do some research on why we get them. They are such a nuisance, aren’t they? Curt recommended me doing research on a yoga pose that helps stop hiccups. Why didn’t I think of that? First, what is  a hiccup? According to Medical News Today, a hiccup occurs when […]


Winners have challenges, post advice, solutions

Thank you to everyone who participated in Comment Contest Tuesday, which was part of September’s Monthly Challenge. Many amazing women posted their challenges and so many posted advice and solutions to others’ challenges. The support that everyone shared with each other was truly amazing. Go Fit Girl! tries to be a regular person with everyday […]


Unconditional love

My brother, John, unexpectedly lost Sabu, one of his furbabies, on Monday. I lost my furbaby, Joey, about a year and a half ago and I am still so sad about it and completely heartbroken. (I wrote about it on the day he died.) Joey used to maintain a blog (mostly with fun photos) with […]


Removing toothpaste from clothing

My girlfriend Monica recently asked me if I knew how to get toothpaste out of clothing. Don’t you hate when you are dressed and you brush your teeth and you get a spot of toothpaste on your top? You rub and rub and it doesn’t come off. This is definitely frustrating. And either you don’t […]


Walking Wednesdays

When the weather is nice in South San Francisco (and that can be iffy) there is a small but mighty group who walks together on Wednesdays. The regulars come and go and come and go and new people trickle in. I am not a huge walker and personally would rather not walk. But if it […]


Comment Contest Tuesday: Challenge Go Fit Girl!

I was thinking about this month’s Monthly Challenge and how I am not super jazzed about it. And based on the participation and minimal updates I am guessing GFG! readers feel the same way. It’s difficult to come up with exciting challenges for exercise and nutrition every single month, which I have been doing for […]


Readers are walking, recycling, biking, composting …

Wow, what awesome participation in last week’s Comment Contest Tuesday and a great celebration of Earth Day. Like myself, many of my readers celebrate Earth Day every day … as it should be. Thank you to everyone who participated. You all shared some great things. Thank you. And the winner is … Gail! She will be […]


Spinning that hula hoop

One of the challenges in Go Fit Girl’s April Monthly Challenge is to rock that hula hoop. According to this article on Healthy.com, we are all as cool as the First Lady. And we know how cool Michelle Obama is. And I can guarantee she can rock that hoop. The article also says, doing any […]
