So yesterday a company called ‘Healthy By Design’ came into my work and organised a big morning tea and three days of testing for everyone on our floor. In the 20 minute test, you get your glucose levels tested, your heart rate/blood pressure and then you also get body fat and body water levels measured by a consultant attaching little electrons to your hands and feet that get plugged into a machine. Sounds scary but you just lie there, not feeling a thing.

So with this presentation/morning tea, there’s also an 8 week challenge. The person who makes the biggest improvements in their body fat or water hydration levels, wins an ipod. I don’t necessarily want an ipod nor do I want to win, I’m going to challenge myself just so I can see what an improvement I can make in 8 weeks just by exercising more (now that I have a treadmill) and……cutting out chocolate.
It’s going to be hard but I’m very motivated and determined to do it. Worst case scenario, I’ll eat the chocolate on the treadmill, won’t feel so bad that way.
