The staff at my office has talked about how they want to get healthier, and if you read down a couple of posts, you can hear a bit of my own frustration of maintaining my weight when not training for a major event.
As a result, I started the West Hills Multispecialty Office Get Healthy Challenge! It is a five week challenge to eat better, adopt positive healthy habits, and lose weight. The challenge started yesterday with a weigh-in. I've offered up a $100 prize to the person who loses the most weight. I've also given everyone a copy of the book Skinny Bitch for inspiration, since no one quite says it like Rory and Kim.
Each day, I am providing a health tip. Today's tip: Pack a lunch so you're not tempted by unhealthy choices around you. Yesterday: Soda has 100 calories per eight ounces -- cut it out! I think I'm also going to have a "Skinny Bitch Potluck Lunch in a couple of weeks.
Nine people in my office are participating, and so far there's a lot of buzz.. I'm really excited!!!!
