Turkey Trot

Welcome to Turkey Trot, the healthy, fun way to start your holidays. The month-long aerobic event may be just the motivation you need to stay active through the holidays and all winter long.

Your goal is to participate in aerobic activity for 500 minutes or more in 30 days. Aim for 30-60 minutes of continuous aerobic activity four or more days a week - activities that increase your heart rate and breathing and can be performed continuously for 10 minutes or more.

Sign up today in the College Nurses Office, L-178 or call X-1111.

The $3 registration fee will be used for prizes.

Please register by Monday, October 23, 2017

The Turkey Trot challenge will run October 24 – November 22, 2017

Do You Have "Claus-Trophobia"? The fear of looking like Santa Claus after the holidays!

If you answered, YES, don't worry---you're not alone. The not so merry news is that the little bit of weight we gain each year can happen during the holidays. Those few pounds add up over the years. BUT, THIS YEAR COULD BE DIFFERENT!!!

Sign up for WEIGH TO GO and get a handle on your holiday consumption habits. It is a unique challenge to maintain your weight over the holidays. All you have to do is weigh in before Thanksgiving and again after New Year's Day. In between those holidays, I'll provide you with information, tips, and ideas on "how to" manage those behaviors that have gotten you into trouble in the past.

Challenge Yourself!!! Maintain your weight over the holidays within two pounds of your starting weight. Don't let the holidays weigh on you all year long. Register by attending the Pre-holiday Weigh-In.
