A sign from the weight loss gods

In my previous post I mentioned how I started the year off great and was on a roll ( or should I say losing rolls), but what I failed to mention is what put me on the weight loss band wagon.

My job is constantly offering "wellness programs" that help us manage our stress, fitness, and health. Well, in the beginning of the year, we were offered a program that was described as a virtual hike. If we decided to participate we would be given pedometers and would have to register to this website that would track our steps. The more steps we enter the further our little dot would move on the map and the greater our chances grew to win prizes. Yes, prizes! WooHoo!  --- I was in!

Long story short, I turned into an exercise machine & won an iPod!  :)   But obviously I turned back into an eating machine. :(

Any who, I was feeling a lot better today because of my recent decision to get back into the swing of things and what pops up at work today?....Another offer for a new wellness program! Yay! Of course I was all over it and I swear to Bob (he is my imaginary weight loss god) he must have heard my cries for help because this email was sent at the right time. This is exactly what I needed to get my Mojo back and end the year great. The program offers a lot of great videos and mini challenges; it even has a health coach we can contact at anytime.

Oh yea did I mention more prizes! I have no clue what they are but free is always good.

Serious grown up moment time --

All BS to the side, I am glad I was given another opportunity like this. Regardless of the prizes, I plan on taking as much as possible from this experience and making the most out of it.

  1. A sign indeed! Every little bit helps. It's a good incentive to get back on that wagon. I think it's great that your job offers those programs to employees. One step at a time...
