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 […]


Healthy routine pays off

Yesterday I talked about weight-loss pills. If someone chooses to take a weight-loss pill they should combine with exercise and a balanced diet to make it work to it’s fullest potential. (And discuss with your doctor.) As I said I personally would not take a weight-loss drug. But I am all for the regular exercise […]


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 […]


Back on plan, on my way to goal weight (again)

Right before Curt and I headed to Mexico City I weighed in super close to my goal weight. Like ounces away. My hard work is paying off. Like I said I would, while in Mexico City I ate and drank what I wanted. I had a lot of amazing food and beer and margaritas. We […]


Go Fit Girl! va a la Ciudad de México

According to Google Translate the headline above says: Go Fit Girl! goes to Mexico City. Almost two months ago I made the decision to rejoin Weight Watchers. I needed accountability with my food intake. And I am proud to say with my food tracking and really paying attention to what I put in my mouth […]


Feeding your body after exercise

I really wanted to blog on Thursday night. Mainly because I had skipped blogging for days before. But I got home late and still had stuff to do around the house and work work to do as well. And by the time I was done I was exhausted. The past work week has been exhausting […]


To stay on plan or to not stay on plan?

My mom comes into town tomorrow night. Curt is heading to Missouri for a high school reunion. So I invited my mom out here for a girls’ weekend. I haven’t decided yet whether the time she is here I will be counting points and tracking my food. I am gonna just go with the flow. […]


Love of reading

As a little girl I loved to read. I read so much that I was three grade levels ahead of my own grade reading level. My vocabulary was quite advanced. I would participate in reading contests. My parents really limited the amount of TV my brother and I watched. I didn’t need TV. I had […]


Dry nose remedies

(Be warned: Some of the pics associated with the articles I link up not are not exactly appealing. I mean they aren’t grotesque, just remember it is noses.) It was either last Thursday or Friday while in Las Vegas that I noticed that my nose was really dry. I have never had a bloody nose […]


Surviving long weekend in Vegas

We got home from Las Vegas today. We flew out on Wednesday night. We had a great time and with our friends Jen and Dave, too. When I go on vacation or out of town or whatever I usually know that the healthy eating goes out the window. Sometimes I can keep the outrageous caloric […]
