12 week challenge.

We are now 3/4 of the way through the work 12 week challenge. I fell off the diet and exercise wagon so badly the weekend of the Whiskey Bread and Butter Pudding. After a week of eating and not exercising and putting on weight at the next weigh in I got started again and am slowly losing once more.

Sian sat down with me this weekend to add up how much exercise has been logged by the group as a whole and how much weight has been lost. I am proud to say that we have clocked up an amazing 16,352 minutes (272.5 hours) and lost 39.24kgs (86.5lbs) Not bad at all!

As a motivator I will be giving away a bunch of freebies that the hospital donated to us to anyone who weighs in or updates their exercise logs in work this week. I am also going to print a weekly poster showing which staff members are currently potentially the winners of the prizes for weight loss and minutes exercised. I'm hoping that this will keep people motivated as we get closer to the final weigh in!!!

  1. You certainly sound movtivated to motivate the group! :) That is a lot of hours and weight lost. Wouldn't it be lovely if the weight would just fall off when you wanted. Believe me....the older you get, the harder it comes off. People use to tell me that when I was younger and I thought pish posh, not for me....sadly I have discovered they were right and I was wrong!! :)

  2. Those are some incredibly impressive numbers! And I love what you're doing to keep everyone motivated!
