That's awesome! Keep us posted!

My company works us ragged and if we call in sick, we have to see a supervisor who asks us, with a straight face, "What could you have done to prevent this?" We all just laugh about it. And then they put up posters encouraging exercise and stress management. Geesh!

We have an on site gym here at work but they got rid of the personal trainers due to the economy. I used to go down there everyday at lunch but have gotten out of the habit. In truth I've gotten out of the whole working out habit lately. I PLAN to get back to it after we get back from Hawaii.

Right now, they are waiting for a "note" from my dr saying it's okay for me to exercise and such. I have completed some paperwork with LOTS of ?s. I was as up front and honest as I could be about my attitude towards all of this. So, I haven't actually started yet. I did tell the life coach and dietician about sparkpeople. I know that I need help and accountability, because I can stretch the truth about some things. since this is through work, I will be held accountable to these 3 people.

Wow! I didn't think any companies were doing ANYthing for their workers right now. That's really great.

The company I worked for had two fitness program. In one, they would pay 20% of your gym membership if you went at least 20 times a month-- but they only got around to making arrangements with one gym, which was the most expensive in the city ($200/month or more) and had ONE branch, a 20-mile round trip from our main offices. In the other, if you rode your bicycle to work at least 80% of the time, they would give you $5 a month in vouchers that you could put toward the purchase of a new bike at one particular shop. Only a bike; you couldn't use it for locker rental or shower service, or lights and reflectors, or anything else that might make it safer and more practical to ride the bike you already had. And since that shop doesn't sell any bikes under about $1200, their 5 bucks a month just wasn't much of an incentive!

So, congratulations! You work for a company that has some brains!

When do you start with your coaches?

The company I work for is REALLY trying to get people healthy and therefore offering the services of a dietician, fitness coach, and life coach............FOR FREE! maybe they will be the motivation I need to get my b**t in gear and work sparkpeople like I'm supposed to.
