I’m on Day 3 of a new get healthy plan. This one is called “Game On!”. Its a program which focuses on all aspects of health – diet, sleep, water consumption, exercise, making a new healthy habit and letting go of an old, unhealthy, habit.
Plus, its all done in a friendly competition!
“Kick your friend’s butt while shrinking your own.” Ha! I love that. The competition goes for 5 weeks. A friend of mine set it up; she’s done it before. We have 5 or 6 teams of 4 or 5 people each. So far, its been great! Every day, all day, there are a ton of emails that go around offering support, encouragement, tips, what’s working and what’s not.
So far, what’s great about it is that I feel like I have a plan for being healthy every day. If I need some help or inspiration, there’s about 25 people who are ready and willing to lend a hand. Plus, there’s the aspect of not wanting to let my team down.
I really need to do something because I weigh more than I ever have before. I know 138 at 5’4″ isn’t the end of the world but a lot of my clothes are not fitting. And I just haven’t felt well. I’m tired a lot; I get out of breath easily. And that’s not how I want to live.
I know I’m only on Day 3 of 5 weeks but I feel like this just might do the trick!
