I am very excited and honored to report that I am now officially the “executive sponsor” of my company’s health and wellness committees! This means, working with our Corporate Health & Wellness organization, I have oversight of the committees in each of four sites that coordinate activities (health expos, exercise groups, recipe-sharing, etc.) for improving employee health. I couldn’t be more honored to have been selected, since I have been an active member in our local group, and because I’m so passionate about this particular mission. I hope I can use everything I’ve learned these past two years to make a difference.
My first task is helping to oversee our upcoming weight management challenge in the PA facility. I’ll be part of a team myself, having been “stuck” at my present weight for months and months….and months. The weight management challenge is a 10-week contest, based on total percentage of weight lost by teams. I’m looking forward to the sharing of information and the team support to finally get that scale moving again (in the right direction, of course!).
You may think that what I eat, and seemingly how little I eat, that those pounds would be melting off. But since that’s not happening, I thought I would start tracking to see where I might be going astray. I went back to “MyFitnessPal.com” which I had used many years ago. I was pleased to see a lot of improvements to the site, and love the expanded database. I was able to find lots of vegan foods, including Forks Over Knives and Isa recipes! Saves me the effort of manually inputting the recipe information.
Speaking of recipes, we found a new one to add to the regular rotation. Everyone LOVED this one, and I think next time I will need to make a double batch: Isa Does It Cheddary Broccoli Soup. It really was cheddary… with NO cheese!!! OMG, sooooo good! And it’s super healthy with broccoli (cruciferous veggies are great anti-cancer agents) and turmeric (a good anti-inflammatory, also beneficial for warding off cancer). I was hoping to have leftovers for lunch tomorrow, but alas, there is not a single drop left.
