Protein secret revealed: It can help you lose weight (and keep you healthy)

This month’s nutrition challenge is about getting in enough protein every day. (Facebook event page here.) And the headline should be no secret, especially to my regular GFG! readers. But you all know how much I am into eating protein and writing about it. (And if you can stand it, I will discuss this in […]


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. […]


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. […]


It’s time to Spring Forward

It’s that time of year again. Most places in North America will Spring Forward tomorrow at 2 a.m. To my Arizona family: No more confusion. Starting tomorrow we will be back in the same time zone. (For those of you who don’t know, Arizona doesn’t participate in Daylight Saving Time.) I hate Springing Forward or […]


Fruit, veggie tips & tricks

I have recently gotten into eating grape-nuts. Funny, I hated them as a kid. (My brother and I weren’t allowed to eat a lot of sugary cereals.) Grape-nuts are crunchy, yummy, filing, healthy and have some fiber and protein. But that’s not really what this post is about. Over the summer I was eating my […]


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 […]


I <3 veggies!

Monday I talked about my munchie-infused snacky day. I mentioned my high-veggie dinner and neighbor/friend/GFG! reader Jessie wanted to know more about my dinner. So let’s talk veggies (and, of course, I will have to get a shout out to protein … Why? Because I am on a protein kick and protein is good for […]


Chugging water, practicing yoga

I meant to write this post on Monday. But this has been a crazy and exhausting week. OK, how are you non-Facebook Go Fit Girl’s Monthly Challenge participants doing? There are 21 people participating in the Facebook event. One participant let the group know that she recently took a CPR class and was told my […]


Let’s celebrate National Yoga Month

September is National Yoga Month. I know that. But the weird thing is I am having a hard time finding a lot of current information on this. In honor of of this month I thought I would FINALLY respond to a request from my friend Rosie. Months ago she asked me for advice for someone […]


It’s time to exercise

So you have made the decision to start exercising (or maybe you haven’t but this post may just motivate you). Now where to begin? I recommend starting slow. You don’t want to hurt yourself or do something unpleasant that makes you never want to exercise ever again. When I started exercising seriously (believe me I […]
