(page 1 of 2)
Ten professionals and 10 teams are competing in the 2015 Get Fit Challenge. Who will earn the healthiest marks? Follow along on Facebook and then find out at the In Business Expo & Conference on Oct. 21. This week, IB checks in with the team from Community Partnerships Inc., which includes team members Scott Strong, Mercy Greenwald, Carrie Tourek, and Lori Duzan. Stay tuned for future blogs from the team.
Hello once again from Team Community Partnerships! We cannot believe that time has passed so quickly and the IB Get Fit Challenge is winding down. In these past six months, we’ve all had our shares of ups and downs, but it really feels like we’ve created some sustainable awareness and made positive changes in the way we take care of each other and ourselves.
During the past few weeks, Mercy has been able to get back into a more rigorous exercise routine, now that her finger is mostly healed. The last few months have been difficult with her injury, but she’s getting back to feeling motivated, strong, and healthy. While she wasn’t able to participate in the Madison Mini Marathon as she had hoped, she is running again and feeling good. She’s also likely to compete in a team-based fitness challenge at her gym, capitalizing on the Get Fit momentum she’s gained. All in all, she’s really enjoying being a part of this challenge!
After some early minor injuries, Scott was able to get back into running again to compliment his regular routine of morning circuit exercise. Once back on track, he took advantage of some late summer vacation time, which typically means getting off the exercise and healthy eating wagon; however, he was able to build in healthy activities during his time away (walking, running, kayaking, and paddle boarding) and once back returned to his routine with a minimal amount of set backs — especially since he enjoyed good, and sometimes not-so-healthy, food while on vacation. Now in the home stretch, Scott is motivated to stick with his routines and finish strong. Having the Get Fit Challenge and his awesome team behind him, Scott has enjoyed the past six months of healthy focus and looks forward to continuing. He reached his initial challenge goals in early summer and is on track to meet his new goals by the end of the Get Fit Challenge.
