Back to life, back to reality (and routine)

I have been on vacation for the past two weeks. Spent some time in Tucson visiting my family, resting and relaxing and celebrating my yoga school graduation and teaching my very first yoga class. The second week Curt and I headed to Amsterdam with our friend Jacob. The past two weeks I have enjoyed my […]


Spring Forward

This post is brought to you by the free wifi from the Starbucks in Harrah’s in Reno. Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) It’s that time again to Spring Forward (tomorrow at 2 a.m.). I am not a fan of time change. I seriously don’t get […]


Challenge: Get those abs in while watching calories

Wow, can you believe that it is already November? Halloween is over. Do you have candy lingering? Before we know it it will be December and Christmas and then a new year. 2014! Go Fit Girl’s November Monthly Challenge ideas come from many Go Fit Girl! readers/friends. Nicole M. asked for something abs related and […]


Eating at the buffet

When you stay at an all-inclusive resort for a week that means you pretty much get all the food and drinks you can consume. As I have stated in the past (many times) when I am on vacation I enjoy myself. I don’t worry about what I am eating and drinking. And I know once […]


Keeping hydrated with H2 OH!

One of the challenges in this month’s Monthly Challenge was to concentrate on water intake. Water is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Keeping yourself hydrated is a vital part of life. Water makes up 60 percent of your body weight, according to USGS. There is varying information on how much water each person should […]


Squats, lunges & water for May’s Monthly Challenge

One of the things that stuck with me with last month’s challenge was that a few mentioned they liked that it could be done at home. I know for a variety of reasons people can’t get to a gym or yoga studio. I will do my best for future challenges to make it accessible for […]


Readers are walking, recycling, biking, composting …

Wow, what awesome participation in last week’s Comment Contest Tuesday¬†and a great celebration of Earth Day. Like myself, many of my readers celebrate Earth Day every day … as it should be. Thank you to everyone who participated. You all shared some great things. Thank you. And the winner is … Gail! She will be […]


Keeping hydrated in warm weather

Being from Arizona I have always known how important water is to stay healthy and hydrated and safe. (Ever heard of heat stroke or heat exhaustion? That stuff is real.) And now that I regularly drink at least 64 ounces a day (but usually more–today I have consumed almost a gallon of water) my body […]


Lovely day for a Guinness

I have never really been a Guinness fan. While in Dublin years ago I had a couple of the black stuff while at the brewery. And damn, it was good. I haven’t had any since … until today. After my yoga class Curt and I headed out for brunch. I went all Irish. I had […]


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. […]
