As a reminder, if you do not weigh in your weight is entered as your starting weight which means you contribute a 0% change for your team.

Get back on track with a few simple steps:

  1. Drink plenty of water
  2. Plan your next healthy meal (don’t starve yourself, just make good choices)
  3. Plan your next workout or just take a walk

Remember that overdoing it on food is the human condition.  We all do it…as we can see from our overall result this week. As a popular inspirational quote says, “You are not defined by your mistakes, but your reaction.” So, own the mistake and get right back to your weight loss plan.

For those that did not fall off the wagon, extra props to you!

Employee Swim

The college will now be offering Employee Swim times.  The pool will be available to employees Monday-Friday from noon to 1:00 pm and on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 7-8 am, excluding District holidays.

If you’d like to take advantage of this great resource, you just need to fill out a liability waiver and you’re all set!

Thanks to pool supervisor, AJ, and Dean Kahn for getting this going.

Did you know there are many free apps you can get on your smart phone to help you track steps, exercise, nutrition and weight loss? There’s an app that comes standard on Samsung phones called S Health where you can track your step count, overall progress, and heart rate. There’s also MyFitnessPal, which I love, to track your water and food consumption, exercise, and weight. You can even just scan a bar code to upload all the nutrition information for the food you eat. These free tools really do make it easier to monitor how you’re doing with your diet and exercise goals.

NOTE – TWO MORE GREAT OPPORTUNITIES FOR FREE EXERCISE!!!

First, a group of participants are hiking up to the ‘P’ on Fridays.  They meet at the flagpole at 4:15 and return between 5:30-5:45.  Anyone can join the challenging, fun hike.  Just bring water, comfy shoes and sun protection. A hiking stick might be helpful if you have one.

Second, Weston Titus (Titus Fitness), who leads our morning boot camp this semester, is offering a FREE boot camp class this Saturday beginning at 9:00 am in Oceanside at Buccaneer Park/Beach.  Everyone is invited to come and bring friends/family.  It will be a good hard work out mixing cardio and body weight resistance exercises.  It should be a beautiful day and what a great way to start the weekend!

TUESDAY (regular weigh-in day)
