A couple of days ago, Sam and I stopped by Costco. Immediately we were faced with rows of vitamins and an enormous display of workout machines. There were treadmills, ellipticals, stair climbers, weight sets, even inversion tables (didn’t those go out in the 70s?). nbsp;And, of course, diet pills and potions were everywhere.
With the new year comes the renewed efforts to get fit. This year will be different. And I’m no exception. You’ll notice on my list of goals for 2012 is the regular commitment to get super, duper fit.
If you’re in the same boat with the other four billion of us looking to make a full body makeover this year, check out Cafe Well. It’s a wellness program that rewards participants for milestones and uses social networking for support and encouragement.
They have a program called Race to the Moon. If you’re a member of HealthAmerica, you may be eligible to join. Members get a free, wireless pedometer that tracks their steps every day. In just under a month, those involved in Race to the Moon logged over 50 million steps.
My daughter, Belinda, and I work out together every morning. When the new year came around, we talked about how we’d both be more likely to work out if we did it together. The team aspect added accountability to our workouts. Café Well can offer that same healthy encouragement. They have challenges to help motivate you, discussion groups to share experiences, and even experts who can answernbsp;questions and give advice on your road to fitness.
I’m on a quest — again — to get fit by working out regularly and eating a healthy diet. Oh, and getting enough sleep, for once. Those are the challenges I’m taking on this year. I’m going to look more into Cafénbsp;Well and see how that resource fits into my healthy lifestyle.
