Hi, I'm Ginny and this is my blog where I share interesting facts on food and fitness, the latest health and wellness research, my latest recipe experiments (mainly on my husband who is a willing subject), as well as a little inspiration from my learnings on living a full and vibrant life. Check out my ME page to find information on what I do and how I could help you or someone you know.
“You go girl!” I heard that a few times and even got 2 high-fives on my Saturday afternoon run (or should I say jog) this past weekend.
I was a little surprised at these reactions. I was just doing my thing, in my normal zone, focused on my running as usual. Then I realized I probably did look a little strange running because I am ALL belly these days.

I ran 6.2 miles this past Monday in the Peachtree Road Race. Yes, I am 7 months pregnant.
After I posted a picture of my husband, baby Streib, and I starting the race on Instagram, I had tons of questions on how I do it. I took some time this week to really think about how I have worked to stay fit during my pregnancy and why it has mattered to me.

I celebrated my 36th birthday this past weekend. I cannot believe I am now closer to 40 than 30. But 40 is the new 30, right?!
It was a beautiful weekend full of some of my favorites, a massage, a new dress, a manicure, a long run on a sunny afternoon, a dinner at a new restaurant with my husband, and sweet texts and phone calls from so many friends and family. I felt loved and special ... Read More
What is in your lunchbox?
Do you eat out for lunch everyday?
Are you so busy that you skip lunch and then raid the candy bowl on your co-worker’s desk mid-afternoon?
Do you just grab the easiest possible solution to keep you moving throughout your day (the bag of chips, the pack of crackers, the cold sandwich available at the quick service kiosk in your office ... Read More
