Being OK with this week’s challenges

I was in Vegas for a long weekend with The Husband and our good friends. As I said in yesterday’s post I gave myself permission to eat and drink whatever I wanted. That being said I didn’t go super nuts. Many of my meals were decent in the calorie department, in fact, some were actually […]


Flexible schedule keeps employees happy

Yahoo’s CEO has announced that employees will no longer be able to work remotely. A major uproar seems to be coming from working parents, especially mothers. Not to discount parents at all, but I am not a parent. And personally for me if this was announced at my place of work I would be unhappy […]


Yawn … so sleepy

I eat fairly healthy and exercise regularly. I drink lots of water. But I feel tried most of the time. I don’t sleep well. I fall asleep just fine. Usually I zonk out on the couch while watching TV. But I wake up during the night. Sometimes just once or twice. Sometimes 5-6 times a […]


A challenging Challenge

One of the challenges for January’s Monthly Challenge is to work on curbing unproductive complaining, to be more aware of what we are really complaining about. It is just bitching or is there some truth and necessity to it? I will admit I am having a hard time with this challenge. I have been super […]


The power of the cupcake

I had another post in mind today. But I have some work to do on it and I am tired. And something happened at work, which warranted a short and quickie post. Part of my job is to ensure that our researchers keep their lab notebooks up to date, that they are complete, signed and […]


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 […]


Are you inspired by Go Fit Girl!?

Recently I debated if I should keep up with the Go Fit Girl! blog. It’s a decent amount of work. I consider it my second job, which I don’t get paid for, and it is rather time-consuming. I do enjoy maintaining it and doing the research and learning things and sharing it all with my […]


Tips on forming good, healthy habits

A friend recently asked me if I had any tips on how to eat healthier. She may regret that she asked. Just a reminder to my readers … I am not a doctor, nutritionist or personal trainer. This post and all of my posts are based on personal experience and my own research. So here […]


What kind of muscular development do you want?

It’s a good thing I pre-wrote some posts over the weekend in anticipation of a busy week. Between work, working on the shuttle bus on the way home, coming home and working, getting exercise in, visiting friend’s cat while she is away, being dressed suitably for work each day and still eating healthy I really […]


Feeding your body after exercise

I really wanted to blog on Thursday night. Mainly because I had skipped blogging for days before. But I got home late and still had stuff to do around the house and work work to do as well. And by the time I was done I was exhausted. The past work week has been exhausting […]
