Get Healthy Challenge!

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!!!!

Be a vegetarian once a meal

Take one meal of the day and make it completely vegetarian. I would suggest having a vegetarian dinner. When you go to bed after a dinner, a vegetarian meal would be much easier to digest and will not result in fat formation.

Include fruits, whole grain and green vegetables in your vegetarian meal. Eating mashed potatoes is not very healthy. So make sure to include green leafy vegetables and salads.

That is so cool, Heather! And you're right--nobody does say it quite like Rory and Kim! Skinny Bitch is a great book! :)
