Here are ten fitness challenges to motivate your group over the biggest hurdle most people encounter when trying to stay on the healthy nutrition and exercise path. Staying motivated. Having a group of friends to keep each other accountable is a great idea. Furthermore, it’s even easier to do now that we can stay connected via e-mail, Facebook etc. If you like these ideas, you may also want to check out The Big Book of 30 Day Challenges.
1. Seven day water challenge: For 7 days, drink your height in water. For example, I’m 64 inches tall so I would drink 64 oz. of water each day. If you don’t drink much water right now, work yourself up by drinking 8 ounces more each week leading up to the challenge.
2. Seven day low sugar challenge: Women should limit added sugar to 24 grams per day. Men should limit added sugar to 36 grams per day. Check the nutrition facts label for sugar. It you are eating fresh fruits and veggies, those are natural sugar. Also, some dairy products also contain natural sugar. You don’t have to count it! Yay.
3. Share one healthy recipe each week: Challenge members to submit a healthy recipe they have tried. The group can vote for their favorite. A secret Facebook group works great for something like this. You could even plan an event where everyone brings a healthy dish with recipes to distribute to group members.
4.Thirty day weight loss percentage challenge. Keep track of the amount of weight you lose for thirty days. The person who loses the highest percentage of his/her body weight is the winner. This is a more fair way to do a weight loss challenge as some members may have more weight to lose than others.
5. Seven day NO (pick two junk foods, like soda and chips) challenge. Group members check in each day to talk about how they are doing and the benefits they are experiencing. A group atmosphere promotes motivating each other and cheering each other’s accomplishments.
6. Thirty day points challenge: Use a 1 pt. multiplier for light exercise, 1.5 pt. multiplier for moderate exercise and a 2 pt multiplier for intense exercise. Multiply the time you exercise by the intensity multiplier. Keep track of your points each day. The person with the most points at the end of 30 days is the winner. You can compete individually or in teams of varying sizes. This seems to be the most popular of the “Ten Fitness Challenges to Motivate Your Group”. You can sign up to download the point tracker right here on my page!
7. Enter an event together: Try a 5K, a Warrior Dash, or a bike
When daily trips to the gym aren’t possible or gym memberships seem a little too expensive, home exercise equipment might seem like a good alternative. But before you spring for new equipment, make sure you’re not buying the fitness fiction of quick, easy results. When shopping, look for equipment that suits your lifestyle and budget, and shop around to get the best price.
Home exercise equipment can be a great way to shape up — but only if you use it regularly. Ads promising quick, easy results are selling a line, not a reality. Here are some claims to watch for:
Whether they’re promoting shoes, clothing, or equipment, some advertisers say their products offer a quick, easy way to shape up and lose weight — without sound science to back it up. There’s no such thing as a no-work, no-sweat way to a fit, healthy body. To get the benefits of exercise, you have to do the work. For more on pills and products promising easy weight loss, read Weighing the Claims in Diet Ads.
Promises that you can effortlessly burn a spare tire or melt fat from your hips and thighs are tempting, but spot reduction — losing weight in a specific place — takes regular exercise that still works the whole body to burn extra calories.
For information about electronic muscle stimulators, which may be able to temporarily strengthen, tone, or firm a muscle, but typically are intended for use in physical therapy and rehabilitation under the supervision of a health care professional, see FDA’s website.
They may be “satisfied customers,” but their experiences may not reflect the results most users get. And celebrity endorsements? They’re no proof the product will work as claimed, either. As for the chiseled models in the ads, is that six-pack the result of the product they’re promoting, months in the gym and years of healthy habits, or an altered photo?
You’ve done your job and looked at any claims with a skeptical, savvy eye. But you’re not quite finished. Before you buy any equipment, here are a few tips to make sure your new gear won’t wind up collecting dust:
Don’t expect the equipment to change your habits. Are you ready to act on your good intentions? If you’re not active already, start now.
Take a test drive. Before you buy, give different equipment a test drive at a local gym, recreation center, retailer, or even a friend’s place.
Read reviews. Check out consumer and fitness magazines that rate exercise equipment to get an idea of how a product performs, and whether it’s likely to help you achieve your goal, whether it’s building strength, increasing flexibility, improving endurance, or enhancing your health. You also can check out user reviews online. Just don’t put all your trust
Welcome to UConn Health’s Policy website. Here you will find official UConn Health policies that govern the daily activities of our faculty, staff and the UConn Health community. Policies can be searched by specific areas above or alphabetically. The website also provides resource quick links. The Office of Faculty Affairs is available for assistance with questions on any of the policies listed here at 860-679-2413.
Please note, violations of UConn Health policies may be cause for disciplinary action up to and including dismissal. A supervisor’s failure to enforce a policy does not excuse an employee from complying with it, nor does it prevent UConn Health form taking disciplinary action thereafter.
While every effort has been made to address the many related issues and ensure the accuracy of the manual, it is recognized that it may not be all-inclusive and does not constitute a legal document or contract. Management will continually revise these policies and communicate changes through normal channels. Advance notice may not always be possible.

According to the CDC, in light of new data about how COVID-19 spreads, along with evidence of widespread COVID-19 illness in communities across the country, CDC recommends that people wear a cloth face covering to cover their nose and mouth in the community setting. This is to protect people around you if you are infected but do not have symptoms.
As care gradually resumes at VAPORHCS, more staff and patients will be present. This makes physical distancing challenging, which could result in asymptomatic spread.
– Outpatients, if not already wearing a mask, should be offered a cloth or paper mask and asked to wear it while present in VAPORHCS settings. Veterans can keep the mask for reuse in the community.
– We understand that there will be some patients who will not be able to tolerate wearing a mask; staff providing direct care to these patients will wear appropriate personal protection equipment accordingly.
Here is a link to a CDC web page that addresses the “Use of Cloth Face Coverings to Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19” including…
– How to Wear a Cloth Face Covering
– CDC on Homemade Cloth Face Coverings
– Should cloth face coverings be washed or otherwise cleaned regularly? How regularly?
– How does one safely sterilize/clean a cloth face covering?
– Sew and No Sew Instructions
Thank you for your support in the new mask policy; your assistance will help keep your fellow Veterans and VA staff and everyone’s loved ones safer.
The Rx Refill mobile application (app) allows Veterans to request refills of their refillable VA-issued prescriptions, track VA prescription deliveries, view VA prescription history from the convenience of their mobile device. The app provides a native mobile interface for the Rx Refill feature found within My HealtheVet. Refill requests submitted through the app or the My HealtheVet website that are dispensed by a VA Mail Order Pharmacy are easily tracked using the app’s “Track Delivery” feature. NOTE: VA is undergoing an Electronic Health Record Modernization (EHRM), which may impact whether My HealtheVet and Rx Refill applications are operational at your facility. To Learn more about EHRM, visit at www.ehrm.va.gov.
Veterans, please use MyHealtheVet or call VA Portland at 503-220-8262, option 2 to relay a message to your Primary or Specialty Care team or to make change or cancel an appointment.

The CDC defines COVID-19 as a new type of coronavirus (or “novel coronavirus”). COVID-19 belongs to a large family of viruses that are common in people and different animal species. On rare occasions, animal coronaviruses can infect people, and then spread from person-to-person. This is how

McDonald’s joins fast-food chains like Chick-fil-A and Taco Bell in removing restaurant seating and moving to drive-thru only.
Some gyms across the nation are closing, but that doesn’t mean you can’t workout. Planet Fitness, one of the nation’s largest chain gyms, is offering free online classes starting today, because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The at-home workouts began streaming on the company’s Facebook page March 16. These classes are open to anyone, including non-members.
“Our daily routines have changed in unexpected ways, and we know that people may not be able to get to the gym. That’s why we’re offering a free, daily virtual fitness class for everyone on Planet Fitness’ Facebook page from Monday through Friday,” said Jeremy Tucker, chief marketing officer of Planet Fitness, in a statement to USA TODAY.

The workouts will be live-streamed at 7 p.m. ET each day for the next two weeks. And if you can’t make it live, the workouts will be available on-demand on Facebook and in Planet Fitness’ YouTube channel. No equipment is needed, and the classes last 20 minutes or less.
Tucker said that virtual classes “will be led by Planet Fitness certified trainers, as well as special guests like ‘The Biggest Loser’ coach and fitness trainer Erica Lugo, among others. The home workouts will offer tools to combat stress, while providing motivation and inspiration sure to keep us all physically and mentally fit.”
With President Donald Trump on Monday calling for Americans to avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people, most gyms will feel the impact immediately.
“We are calling this movement ‘United We Move’ because we know that the best way to stay healthy both physically and mentally is to stay active,” added Tucker.
The gym chain has consistently grown its revenue in the past three years, with a total revenue stream of $174.4 million for 2018.
