Enjoying vacation

Since the end of 2006 I have been a fairly healthy person. In October 2006 I joined Weight Watchers and started on the venture to lose about 30 pounds. In March of 2007 I started regularly exercising, which still continues to this day. (And now I teach other people to exercise and practice yoga.) I […]


Finding your paradise

I literally (pen to┬ápaper) wrote this post on Wednesday (October 15). As a native Arizonan and Tucsonan (born, bred and educated) I spent many summers in San Diego, as did many other Arizonans. Getting a tan, running my toes through the sand and the smell of salt water … that’s my ideal and dream vacation. […]


Gym yoga teacher sub gig

Last night I taught my third yoga class, but my first gym yoga sub gig. A friend of mine who I work with and lives in Alameda helped me get this sub gig. (She is also a yoga teacher.) She knew Alameda Athletic Club was going to need a yoga sub when the regular yoga […]


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 […]


Do you want to be happy?

As much as I hate to admit this I used to watch Dr. Phil. His famous line (at least with me) was, Do you want to be right or do you want to be married? I realize he was trying to keep the peace in a relationship. But damnit, sometimes you just want to be […]


Back to my routine

From my posts last week you know that I was on vacation. I had a great, amazing and relaxing time with The Husband in the Caribbean. The water on Turks and Caicos was absolutely a beautiful, gorgeous turquoise. I lounged a lot, slept in a lot, got some sun. I also ingested a lot of […]


Exercising while on vacation

Another great thing about Club Med is there are activities for just about everyone. (And if your thing is to just lounge at the beach and drink, there’s plenty of that for you. That’s my favorite pastime.) Like most trips I brought exercise clothes with me. And about half the time they don’t leave the […]


Eating at the buffet

When you stay at an all-inclusive resort for a week that means you pretty much get all the food and drinks you can consume. As I have stated in the past (many times) when I am on vacation I enjoy myself. I don’t worry about what I am eating and drinking. And I know once […]


GFG! is going on vacation

OK, so you already thought I was on vacation, right? Every week I think life is gonna slow down and it just seems to get more hectic. This means certain things in my life suffer, such as regular exercise and blogging. And starting Friday I am on vacation. Curt and I are heading to Turks […]


Back to healthy, clean living

Oh man. I feel like I have been writing these posts too often lately. I have been allowing myself to get out of my routine way too much recently. Yup, I usually have a good reason or “excuse.” And we all fall off the wagon and experience life. And sometimes I give myself permission to […]
