Munching on “spaghetti”

I survived Day 3 of my cleanse. I replaced my three meals with three green smoothies. I was a little hungry in the afternoon so I had an apple. Trying to keep it raw. It went much more smoothly than I thought it would. Last night I attended my regular Friday evening Vinyasa flow class […]


Exercise, vegetables and dancing … oh my!

Sorry for the slacking in blogging. But rest assured I have not been slacking in the exercise or the caloric intake department. Let’s see. What have I been up to since I last blogged on Tuesday … On Wednesday I walked with some co-workers/friends. It was a small group, but we were/are fierce. The walk […]


Trying to de-clutter my life

I recently signed up for a super cleanse with Lory Benson Pilates, which started yesterday. I haven’t actually started the green smoothie cleanse as the timing isn’t quite right for me. But before the end of this month I plan to imbibe in some fruit and veggie smoothies. The seven-day cleanse is about de-cluttering physically, […]


Sore, tired body

This will be a short post as I am tired and well, just bleh. Tuesday night Jenn and I did some weight work on our back and shoulders (among other stuff). Yesterday I worked from home so I attended the Power Vinyasa yoga class at the studio in my neighborhood. Naushon really had us focus […]


Go Fit Girl! is thankful for …

      the fact that I am fairly healthy. the fact that I can afford a gym membership … and a yoga studio membership. the fact that I can afford fairly healthy food at the grocery. the fact that my company has a gym on site. my spin teachers, especially Jenn. Baxter’s fun and […]


Candlelight flow

Usually on Fridays when I work from home I attend the 10 a.m. yoga class at my yoga studio. But Joey had a vet appointment this morning so I wasn’t able to attend Rachel’s Vinyasa class. I attended the 5:30 p.m. fairly new candlelight flow class. This was my first time with the newish class. […]


You had me at bolster

My regular props for most of my yoga classes are a blanket, strap and block. (Bolster photo provided by Yoga Bolsters.) The blanket is great for sitting on to give yourself a little boost. It is also good to use under your knees when doing poses where your knees might be sensitive. The strap is […]


Burning thighs … er … sore hips

  My work schedule has been a little weird this week. I worked from home yesterday. And today we were allowed to leave work a little early after being treated to an amazing seafood lunch. (See lobster photo to the left.) Yesterday morning I took a yoga class from the yoga studio, Namaste Yoga Studio […]


Yoga subs are great way to experience the new, different

Today my Vinyasa Flow class had a sub. The class was taught by Emily. I like her style. I have taken class from her before. After class I told her I enjoyed her class and style. She told me the type of yoga it was, which I don’t remember now what it was called. I […]


Compliment from yoga teacher made my day

Before yoga class today Ashley asked if anyone had anything going on with their bodies they needed to discuss with her. This is the norm. I told her my legs and glutes were sore from body conditioning the day before where Jennifer had us do step ups. So I might not be able to hold […]
