Vegas, here we come

Curt and I head to Vegas tomorrow night.┬áThis will be our third annual Vegas trip for the opening of the NCAA Men’s basketball tournament, which starts Thursday morning. Our good friends Jen and Dave will meet us on Friday. Last year Jen and I discussed doing our best to get some exercise in. Jen did […]

Eating with a little walking sprinkled in

Curt are in Albany, MO this weekend. We are here visiting his parents and also for deer season. Curt’s brother and our nephews were also here–they left today. My mother-in-law, Marilyn, is an amazing cook. We have had butterscotch rolls, pumpkin pie, tenderloin sandwiches, pot roast, ham, apple salad and so much more. Of course, […]

UGH! Time for some sort of detox

I had a good weekend in Tucson. I saw lots of family, ate good food and had numerous drinks. I knew there would be little if any healthy options to eat. Which I was completely OK with. I hoped I would get a little yoga in with Hilda. We talked about doing yoga together. But […]

Earning my shiny stars

Days after I got back from vacationing in Barcelona in June I started back into my exercise routine. From June 22 until July 13 I did some form of exercise. That’s 22 days in a row. We had friends in town so I hate a delicious dinner and drinks with them in the city on […]

Exercise back in full swing after vacation hiatus

A little vacation weight gain

Yesterday and today I have been so hungry. Not sure if it because my internal cycle is all screwed up or because I am used to eating and drinking a lot more than normal, after my week in Barcelona. I appear to have gained about a pound and a half. We did a fair amount […]

Walking, walking and more walking

Yesterday we did a lot of walking. Today we did a ton of walking. We visited Montserrat. It was beautiful and amazing. It is 7:30 p.m. We are home to clean up and rest a bit before we meet our friends Mark and Rosie at 9 and then head out to dinner. I don’t need […]


Curt and I are in Barcelona and i am teating out my WordPress app. If it works, more posts and details to come. We have been having some connectivity issues since here.

Go Fit Girl! heads to Barcelona

In preparation for my trip to Barcelona I have been working pretty hard to eat healthy and exercise regularly to get me in shape for my gorge and drink fest while in Europe. For the past 10 days I have exercised. That’s damn good. It has been spin or yoga or body conditioning or abs. […]
