Being fit......

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Since I started my journey to get fit I seem to be a happier person, I smile more, just lots of little things. It's nice going to work and have people comment on how good I look. Same old looks just a better body. Thought I would make that clear. I was asked to help with our health and wellness group at work, and that has since turned into our plant spokesperson. I think its an honor. I have started a riding group at work, and we meet twice a week to ride. I started out with 6 people and now we have 18 people riding with me. I have different mileages to ride for all skill levels. Some people do 5 miles and some have done as much as 20 now. I think that is pretty good since most had not done anything, fitness wise in many years. So i am proud of our group. So now a few in our group want me to help them with there nutrition, I'm not real sure how good I am at doing that, but I do have spark friends to help out if I have questions. So I might be asking a few of you for answers in the future. We have done a weekly weigh in and the people in my group have lost more than the rest of the plant combined. I could be up for a nobel peace prize or something. :) NOT...

So I just wanted to share this, not sure anyone is even reading it, but it gives me a chance to write it down anyway. So if anyone does read this thank you for stopping by.

Hugs to all my spark friends,

    That's good, really awesome, to be asked to be a spokesperson, helping others in the workplace, that will trigger the urge to start taking care of health, balancing work with life :D And as it seems that we spend more time at work compare to other places, I think it's a good idea to start taking care of ourselves from work then spread out to home, family and friends!

    Our office has health & wellness program for the employees, including losing weight and stop smoking. I think many have reap the benefits and influencing+supporting each other and I'm happy that in my department, it's easy to share tips and stories of our fitness, activities and sports, no matter what we do. Though, we also have lots of free food from meetings LOL

    Hey I've just started biking about 4 weeks ago!! Love it!! Started due to a foot injury. I don't have an amazing bike like you though, just a regular mountain bike. Got any tips?? Like the idea of the running and biking, didn't know they had thoughs. I used to be a runner. I'll have to check into those.
