Winter 5% Challenge

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Are you looking for a way to get fit, lose weight, and have fun along the way? Check out the Winter 5% Challenge! Team members will work towards losing 5% of their starting weight in 8 weeks by participating in team challenges that focus on exercise & healthy lifestyle habits. Letís have fun, make new friends and get in shape this Winter!

I spent January in Palm Springs, with a side trip to Las Vegas and this last weekend in Yuma, AZ. I am headed home and should be there by the weekend. I am listening to Wheat Belly as I travel and considering the merits of eliminating wheat from my diet. Being in a dry climate seemed to agree with me, no aches or pains! I will post some pictures later. When I get home I have a week to get ready for 2 weeks in Mexico, then home again and back to work.

Have a great week!

    I can't have wheat because I have celiac disease. I'm not sure giving it up unless you have an intolerance does you much good, although staying away from white bread and other refined and processed wheat products is probably good for everyone.
