The contagious cold

I have a cold. And man, it sure makes me tired. I have skipped the gym since Thursday evening, when I thought I might be getting sick. I don’t exercise when I am sick as I personally believe my energy should be reserved for getting back to healthy. But that’s not what this post is […]


Take care, love you this month

This month’s Go Fit Girl!’s February Monthly Challenge is about the No. 1 person in your life. It’s not your spouse, partner, kids, parents, boss. It’s YOU. In honor of this month’s Love of Reading Month and that other silly celebration that happens in the middle of this month the Monthly Challenge is about focusing […]


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 […]


Major Munchie Monday

Wow, I don’t know what happened today. All day all I wanted to do was eat. I had the munchies. I wanted to eat carrots and I wanted to eat candy and I wanted to eat chips and just about anything else I could get my hands on. Since back to a healthy routine I […]


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 […]


Chugging water, practicing yoga

I meant to write this post on Monday. But this has been a crazy and exhausting week. OK, how are you non-Facebook Go Fit Girl’s Monthly Challenge participants doing? There are 21 people participating in the Facebook event. One participant let the group know that she recently took a CPR class and was told my […]


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 […]


Dealing with higher altitude

Who knew I would have things to write about while on vacation? As soon as we got to Iris and David’s on Sunday night David poured all of us a glass of bottled water. He told us to make sure to have lots of water because of the altitude. Normally I drink a good amount […]
