Getting beach ready by tracking food

I have a little more than three weeks until Curt and I head to Barcelona for a a glorious week. So that means I have a little more than three weeks to get back to my goal weight. I have 5 pounds to lose. I would love to also be toned as I will be […]


Vegas workouts

Over my Vegas weekend I hit the hotel gym twice. That is pretty good. Most vacations I pack my workout clothes and they never leave the suitcase. I seriously think having a workout partner, Jen, made all the difference. So, Jen, I think you must go on all vacations with me. 🙂 Day 1 was […]


Vegas, baby!

For me Vegas means a lot of drinking and a lot of eating with just a little gambling (mostly penny slots as I don’t like to lose my money). Curt and I head to Vegas on Thursday night. Our friends Jen and Dave will join us Friday morning. Jen and I were talking about trying […]


WW newbie goes on vacation

My friend Jen asked for some advice for someone who is new to WW and going on vacation. Jen doesn’t want to reverse all of her hard work. And I totally understand. So, let me first say that I don’t know all of details of the newest Weight Watchers plan. But I think I can still […]


Carb-loaded lunch

I am almost embarrassed to admit what I had for lunch today. For some reason there has been a lot of extra food around work lately. And I can’t seem to not eat it. So for lunch I had mac & cheese (wow! it was delish!); mashed potatoes; white rice; and salad doused with dressing. […]


Getting back in the exercise routine

My plan (after being gone from the gym for 5 weeks: getting sick and then being on vacation) this week was to immediately get back into my regular workout routine. Not sure why I thought that would happen. I guess I was hoping it would since I knew it would help with the jet lag. […]


Lots of walking …

and eating and drinking beer since I have been in London. Go Fit Girl! is on holiday for two weeks. There won’t be many healthy things happening over these two weeks. But I will be enjoying myself.


3 pounds in 3 weeks

(Written Sunday night about 9:30 London time) So about a month ago I started back on plan with tracking points. I was well on my way to hitting goal weight and maybe with a few pounds to spare by the time we came to Europe. Then I got sick … I was hit with a […]


Please sponsor my virtual walk, if you can

My company, Onyx Pharmaceuticals, has created a team to support the MMRF Race for Research. Check out my page by clicking right here. I signed up for the virtual walk, since I will be on vacation that day. But I assure you, there will be much walking in London, Paris and Amsterdam. If you can […]


Weight Watchers really works

As you know I lost 30+ pounds about three years ago. I lost the first 20 pounds on counting Points(r) alone–so making better food choices and reducing my calorie/fat intake. The last 10ish pounds I lost with food and exercise. Probably for about two years I kept the weight off. Recently I put a little […]
