Once again … back to healthy living

After more than a week traveling for work and fun I got back home last night. And today is the day I got back to my normal and healthy lifestyle. I was in Texas. First Dallas and then Austin. Dallas was for work and I thought I would add Austin to the end of my […]


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 […]


Making a green choice while away from home

When I checked into my hotel in Dallas on Friday evening I was given a choice to decline regular house keeping for environmental reasons. There is a reward of points to decline. Frankly, I don’t need points to agree to that. I don’t make my bed every day. And I don’t need anyone else making […]


Training, travel and all that comes with it

As I am writing this I am sitting at a restaurant at the Oakland airport waiting for my flight to Dallas. I am attending the International Trademark Association Annual Meeting. The past two years I have attended the Trademark Administrator’s Conference. But because they are revamping that conference/training there is not one this year. So […]


Full workout at home

My routine was completely out of whack this week. I got sick on Sunday and even though I felt better on Monday I decided to skip the gym and make sure I was back to healthy. (Plus I had a fever on Sunday, which broke Sunday night or Monday morning, and didn’t want to infect […]


Armed with sunscreen and hat

I took today off to attend a Giants baseball game with my friend Alicia and a couple of her friends. A baseball game in San Francisco can be a beautiful and fun experience or a dreadful one depending on the weather. There have been times when I am wearing a sweatshirt, jacket, gloves, hat, scarf […]


Start jumping!

One of our exercise challenges this month in Go Fit Girl’s April Monthly Challenge is working the jump rope. If you want a major cardio workout, jump rope for 3 minutes (or longer). Jumping rope requires and builds coordination, is an easy and quick cardio workout and can be done almost anywhere. According to WebMD, […]


Have mat, will travel

I stole that headline from a friend. But I love it. So I had to use it. I don’t believe I announced to my readers about my trip to Vegas this weekend. Though between my Facebook friends and fellow Challengers and my mom I think I got my readers covered. Curt and I have made […]


Being aware of trivial complaints is half the battle

One of the challenges in this month’s Go Fit Girl!’s January Monthly Challenge is to try to go one day with no complaining. This one is definitely a tough one. I have had discussions with others on this one. And there has been some discussion on the Facebook event page. But I think it is […]


Back to life, back to reality

Today our vacation ends … Well, we still have a few more days off. But today we take off and drive back home to the Bay Area. I have had a great time visiting family and friends. But frankly, I am looking forward to getting back into my routine … my healthy routine. Our one […]
