Biggest Winners at Southern Miss

It turns out that I was able to get on a team for this program at work. I'm on a team that consists of faculty, staff, and students. So we get to be a little different. I got a glance at the list of my team members today, but I only recognized one name. And it isn't someone that I know well, I've just talked to her on the phone a few times.

Anyway, I think I will enjoy the program. They are going to weigh me and do measurements either tomorrow or Wednesday. I will alos be getting a lipid profile done as well as a DEXA scan to check my bone density. We earn points for varius activities, and this goes through mid-April. I'm really excited!!!!

I get points for attending classes at the Payne Center, exercising by myself (on days I don't attend classes), getting my lipid profile and DEXA scan, attending educational meetings, four weeks of food journals, AND weighing in each week. There are even 4 Saturday events that are worth 10 points each!!! Otherwise, the points range 1-5. I won't make all the Saturdays, but I hope to make at least 2 of them. (The first one is while I am out of town.)

I'm all kinds of hyped up about this program. It's Jan 31-April 14. If over the next few weeks you see all kinds of stuff about it, don't be surprised. All of my exercise will count towards this. The only negative that I see so far is that I will be limited to one session of water aerobics a week because the meetings coincide with one of those sessions each week.

I hope to be able to share lots of interesting information from the ed. sessions each week. I make no guarantess since a couple of those are really based on our campus (such as the week that we tour some of the cafeterias), but anything to help others I will post for everyone to read.

Well, I think I'm going to leave it at that today. I will have more about this later in the week I'm sure!

Everyone have a wonderful day/evening/whatever and keep being successful!!!
