Weight Watchers: Move More, Sit Less

Our Blog Ambassador challenge this week has been move more, sit less. We were encouraged to stand up more, walk around more and generally exercise more. At the beginning of the week I ordered 30 Day Shred, a workout DVD by Jillian Michaels that I have been told over and over again really gets results.

Global Corporate Challenge – Walk the World

Starting today, and over the next 16 weeks, six colleages and I are attempting to walk around the world. We are are taking part in the Global Corporate Challenge (GCC), which is a world-wide company challenge that aims to improve the activity levels of workers and therefore also our health and well being at work

Pedometer Challenge – Day 7

That’s it, the challenge is over! And it’s a good job as my pedometer pretty much fell apart and is badly held together with lots of sticky tape! After a week of counting my steps I have absolutely completed the challenge and am very pleased. I have found that it’s made me really motivated to

Pedometer Challenge – Day 6

Well I have to say I thought today was gonna be easy for steps – I was on my feet pretty much all day. But no, I “only” managed just over 7.5k – how disappointing!  I thought I would smash the 10k daily target easily! I discovered this morning, though, that something had come lose

Pedometer Challenge – Day 5

Friday woo! And I’ve only gone and done it… I have completed the challenge work set us of 50,000 steps between 1st and 7th March. Two days early. 🙂 Everything now is a bonus – I wonder if I can manage 10,000 a day at the weekend? Day 1 – Monday – 14,022 Day 2

Pedometer Challenge – Day 4

Another pretty normal day for me, no additional exercise to bump up my steps, but not as much walking on the spot required in the evening.  Really am getting there with the challenge now… hopefully I’ll have the 50,000 steps needed in the bag by the end of today and then everything at the weekend

Pedometer Challenge – Day 3

Another pretty normal day for me today which involved a lot of walking and jogging on the spot in the evening to get my step count up! Really getting there now though, over 10,000 today and so the total is looking ok! I am feeling very positive about completing the challenge set by work to

Pedometer Challenge – Day 2

I knew that day 2 wasn’t going to be quite as active as day 1 – I had no netball planned for a start.  It was a much more normal day really – sat at my desk at work all day, a walk into town at lunch time, and sat down at home in the

Pedometer Challenge – Day 1

I have to admit to being very worried at 10am as after two hours of wearing my pedometer I had done less than 1,000 steps.  But thanks to a long walk at lunch time and netball in the evening I managed 14,022 steps on Monday. Day 1 – Monday – 14,022 Running Total: 14,022 Today

Pedometer Challenge

This week at work has been designated “Healthy Campus Week”, with lots of stuff going on to encourage staff to be more active as well as eat better etc. Later today I’m gonna play netball, then on Wednesday I’m gonna go to a Tai Chi worship coz I’ve always wanted to try it.  I’m also
