Forming healthy habits

As I have talked about before, my company has a Wellness Program. Throughout the year challenges are created for us. Some of Go Fit Girl!’s Monthly Challenges are inspired by my work challenges. Though I do try to add my own twist to them. One of the challenges right now is to Challenge a Friend. […]


It’s go time

The Husband and I are traveling to Tucson for Christmas … by car. We decided to drive as it is expensive to fly to Tucson and even more so for Christmas. We will need a car while in Tucson and for the second part of our trip to San Diego. I am not a huge […]


Review Wednesday: Camelbak water bottle

I have been using various Camelbak water bottles for years. I like to call mine an adult sippy cup. The water bottle with the built-in straw for some reason makes me drink more water. I have a 16 ounce/500 mL bottle, which worked just great for me. A few months back I decided to get […]


Just me, just you … trying to survive life

As I mentioned last week, I recently attended my 20-year high school reunion in my beautiful hometown. As a Badger alumni I had the option to be a sponsor for the reunion. So Go Fit Girl! was a sponsor along with a few others. With my sponsorship I received an acknowledgement on a banner, in […]


Minus 1 drink, abs/core work are featured in this Monthly Challenge

The first Go Fit Girl! Monthly Challenge seemed successful. Trying to increase or get your water intake to at least 48-64 ounces a day and either trying yoga for the first time or if a regular yogi, trying a new teacher or new kind of class/practice. Today launches Go Fit Girl’s October Monthly Challenge. And […]


Can you drink too much water?

Years ago when I lived in Phoenix and worked at The Arizona Republic I was a unfairly unhealthy person. Having a job in newspapers makes it difficult to have any sort of healthy lifestyle. I think that was also when I had my (regular, packed with sugar) Vanilla Coke addiction and I would troll the […]


Get your water, yoga in for this month’s Monthly Challenge

OK, GFG! readers, today marks GFG!’s first Monthly Challenge. There will be two challenges. One focused on exercise and one focused on nutrition. In honor of National Yoga Month I thought I would make the first exercise challenge about yoga. If you have never taken yoga before, try a class. If you occasionally or regularly […]


A good night’s sleep

From what I have read and what I I just know 7-9 hours of sleep at night is recommended and ideal. Because I get up at 5:30 four days a week I try to get in bed between 9:30 and 10. I usually have no problem falling asleep. A lot of time I am crashing […]


Rockin’ customer service

I have been using Camelbak water bottles for a little more than two years. The first one I owned just had a lid. It was a little difficult to drink out of because of the wide mouth. But nonetheless I liked the bottle and how easy it was to take to the gym, when traveling, […]


Keeping yourself hydrated is important

I drink a lot of water. So when I slack on the H2O my body notices it pretty quickly. It is important for me to keep up my water intake. It’s best if I drink 64 ounces, which is eight servings. Sometimes I only get six servings in, 48 ounces. On Friday night Curt and […]
