Fall Back 2017

Wow, It’s been months and months since I’ve written a post. There are definitely things I want to share with you all. Just time isn’t on my side these days. You can keep up with me via social media and my monthly newsletter (you can sign up with the button to the top right.) On […]


Before … after … and now

For about the¬†past year to year and a half I have been the healthiest I have ever been. Not the smallest or thinnest, but the healthiest. I turn 42 in one month and I feel amazing. And I think I look pretty good, too. I know that’s not what it is all about. It’s about […]


Healthy living at 40

Right now in my life I am the healthiest I have ever been in my whole entire life. And I’m 40. I’m at a healthy weight. I eat pretty healthy. I drink alcohol in moderation. I rarely have soda. I exercise regularly. My stress levels are fairly low. I drink a lot of water. I […]


Our bodies need energy, fuel

Like a car we need to fuel our bodies. I was talking to a friend recently telling her how I am teaching five cycle classes a week (among numerous yoga classes). Her next question was, are you in crazy great shape? (That’s not a quote. But she said something like that.) I told her I […]


Seeing results with healthy choices

I know that there are so many things challenging about the holidays. There is stress, overeating, over drinking … etc. But we can overcome a lot of that and stay on a healthy track. When I quit my job a little more than two months ago I thought the weight would fall off and I […]


Celebrating bumps and curves

Recently I saw stuff¬†about Jennifer Garner and her baby bump. Jennifer Garner admits she has a baby bump but is not pregnant on the Ellen DeGeneres show. She’s had three kids and now there is a bump and she says it ain’t going away. Society as a whole is so obsessed with women and their […]


Experimenting in the kitchen

As I have mentioned in the past since my FUNemployment began I have a long to do list of things, including getting healthy. And one of the many ways I am working on getting back to healthy (and hopefully lose a few pounds in the process) is by experimenting with recipes and cooking. I will […]


Pursuing happiness

You want to know the real reason I quit my job? I wasn’t happy. I was also becoming a person I didn’t like. And that definitely needed to change. When I started my yoga teacher training about a year ago (can’t believe that was a year ago) it wasn’t my intention to quit my job […]


Keeping balanced with Restorative

One of my favorite yoga teachers, Vickie, is teaching a Fall Restorative Series. It was for three Sundays. One in September, one in October and the third one was today. After today’s workshop I felt calm and relaxed. I’m ready for this week and the holiday season. October’s Sunday workshop was called Not for Women […]


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 […]
