My church started an 10 week exercise program for the ladies called "Meltdown Mondays" 3 years ago. I have been helping with it ever since.I am really excited about this years program.
We made some major changes. We really wanted to move from just being an hour of aerobic exercise to being a wellness program. So, this year we are offering an cardio/strength/flexibility session as well as volleyball. We are also offering talks with a doctor, a registered dietitian, and a personal trainer.
The first hour we are doing 30 minutes of cardo, 20 minutes toning/strength, and 10 minutes of flexibility. The next hour we are doing volleyball - both competitive and recreational. The ladies can pick and choose what they want to do...
We had a good turnout and I am excited about how this year will go.
We also gave the ladies a 10 week challenge to encourage being healthy on more than 1 day a week. We are challenging them to walk at least 100 miles...(they can also run, skate, bike or do other convertible exercise). We are also challenging them to eat at least 5 to 9 servings of fruit and veggies servings a day. Each fruit and veggies serving counts as 1 point. They are to strive for at least 275 points.
Even though I work out 5 to 6 days a week. I am going to participate in the challenge and see just how many miles I'll do. I strive to eat 8 servings of fruit and veggies a day - 3 fruit and 5 veggies - as recommended by my dietitian. But I've been kinda slacking on the veggies. So, I gonna strive to meet and exceed 275 points.
