Happy feet … walking

I decided to take today off and have a four-day weekend. I accomplished a lot today. I had a dentist appointment this morning. Then the car had scheduled maintenance. And I started the daunting task of de-cluttering the spare room/office/dumping room. I took the car in a little after 9. The dealership offers courtesy shuttle […]


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 […]


My response to NYT article

A little more than a week ago the New York Times ran an article in their Sunday magazine titled How Yoga Can Wreck Your Body. There has been a lot of talk in the yoga world about this article, or at least in my yoga world. We have been discussing in classes, some of my […]


Why not go for a walk on Wednesday?

One of my co-workers organized a walk today at lunchtime. When I opened the meeting invite I read it and my first reaction was, a walk for an hour? But I decided that the walk wouldn’t kill me. And it would get me outside and away from my desk for a good and healthy break. […]


Quiet, loungy, lazy Christmas day

Because it is Christmas both the gym and yoga studio were closed today. If the yoga studio had been opened I probably would have taken a yoga class today as there wouldn’t be any classes at the gym and it is rather difficult for me to get that motivated. I had debated if I should […]


Taking a walk …

I didn’t get down to the work gym until about 4:20 or so. Twenty minutes later than I really wanted. (Lately it is more difficult to get down to the gym at 4 and get in an almost 90-minute workout.) I really wanted to focus on weights and abs today. But I also wanted to […]


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, […]


And Feet Week concludes …

Well, I think Feet Week has been pretty successful and educational. I did some research and learned lots of stuff. And I learned from my readers as well with comments on Go Fit Girl!, Go Fit Girl’s Facebook page and even my personal Facebook page. Thanks to everyone who participated in Comment Contest Tuesday. A […]


Picking out a good pair of athletic shoes

Years ago I went to a store that specifically sold athletic shoes. The woman who helped me measured my foot and asked me what I mostly needed them for. Was I a walker, runner, what kind of exercise did I do? From what I told her she came up with an athletic shoe that was […]


Cardio prepares me for day at the ballpark

I attended a 6:15 a.m. cardio/body conditioning class this morning. Why? Partially because I am crazy but also because my work team attended an offsite at the Giants ballpark today. The class I took was intense and insane. I am pretty sure I am going to feel it tomorrow: arms, legs, butt, etc. We started […]
