Spring Forward 2018

It’s that time again to Spring Forward (on Sunday at 2 a.m.). Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) I have never been a fan of time change. I don’t get the point of it. I grew up in Arizona where time change doesn’t occur. I say, let’s Spring Forward […]


Fundraising month(s)

In a previous post I mentioned that I am fundraising for Living Yoga’s Yogathon. I will be fundraising for Living Yoga for all of April. I am also fundraising for Rose Haven. I will be walking on Mother’s Day with members of my Beaverton Huddle. We will join hundreds of people for this Mother’s Day to […]


Getting ready to Spring Forward

Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) It’s that time again to Spring Forward (Sunday at 2 a.m.). I am not a fan of time change. I seriously don’t get the point of it. I grew up somewhere (Arizona) where time change doesn’t occur. So to my Arizona […]


Reunion with fundraising walk

This morning I participated in a charity walk with friends/former and current co-workers to raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. We came together this morning to honor a great man who left this world too soon. Team Goldman ended up being No. 4 in fundraising. We rallied at the end to get back […]


Spring Forward

Yesterday we had a Farmer’s Market; today is eWaste disposal for a free lunch; tomorrow–Wellness Walk; Thursday–a sustainability quiz (not quite sure what that means); and a Vendor Fair on Friday, which I will miss since I […]


Exercise, say no, buy toys and don’t gain weight …

And today we launch Go Fit Girl!’s December Monthly Challenge. December is a challenging month in all aspects of my life. So I am gonna guess that it is the same for most of my readers. The challenges this month are going to be a little different than the previous months. Exercise: Exercise 3-4 times […]


Accountability=successful weight loss

At one point over the summer I realized I needed accountability with my food and drink intake. Even though I worked out almost every day I wasn’t monitoring my food intake and I wasn’t losing weight even though I wanted to get back to my goal weight. I needed accountability with food tracking. In the […]


Taking care of No. 1

As a woman I have to remind myself that I need to take care of me, too. I have a long commute to work and a long day during the week as I get up between 5:15 and 5:30 most mornings. At times my job can be demanding and stressful. Even though I am not […]


It’s time to exercise

So you have made the decision to start exercising (or maybe you haven’t but this post may just motivate you). Now where to begin? I recommend starting slow. You don’t want to hurt yourself or do something unpleasant that makes you never want to exercise ever again. When I started exercising seriously (believe me I […]
