Spring 2014

This Spring we have increased our TEAM LIFE activities and hope to see many more new faces!  Please take a look at the Spring TEAM LIFE Newsletter for specific dates, times, and events.

Here is a quick idea of some activities starting next week!

 

Health Dimensions Expo

TEAM LIFE takes great pleasure in presenting the fourth annual Health Dimensions Expo on February 20, 2014, 11:00am to 1:00pm in the AA/ST Courtyard on the San Marcos campus.  All staff and faculty are invited to attend, browse the many booths, get your raffle card punched, pick up some free goodies and enjoy a fun time with some healthy learning overtones!  For those who are joining the Biggest Loser Challenge, this will also be a weigh-in site.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Week 5 of the 10,000 steps a day challenge!

Are you doing other exercise besides walking and would like to convert it to steps?

For example, according to Shapeup.org:

“Question: How do you convert time on a bike to steps? I have a Schwinn airdyne.

Answer:  If you have a Schwinn airdyne that has a calorie readout, then all you need to know is that walking one mile is equivalent (approximately) to burning 100 calories. If you exercise on your Schwinn airdyne long enough to burn 100 calories, that is like walking 2000 steps. To burn the equivalent of walking 10,000 steps, you would have to exercise long enough to burn 500 calories.”

Last day of week 2

Did you know that the city of San Marcos offers weekend hikes lead my their city trail experts?  This would be a great way to learn about the trails available around Palomar while also earning more steps!
