Before another day passes us by this month, I’d like to share with all the ladies out there a series I’m participating in. It’s put on by Girlnetic Fitness and is basically a networking group, for women, who share the common interest in staying fit. The Jumpstart to Fitness series kicked off last month and unfortunately I couldn’t make it. However, during the entire month of April, there are fitness classes and groups meeting, giving us all the opportunity to try new activities at a very low cost ($5) or free! There’s crossfit, kickboxing, yoga, spinning and running to name a few, and I’ve already registered for four events. I’m really looking forward to meeting women runners that may be at my same fitness level and share the same goals.
Take a click over and check out the schedule; they have events all over the Capital District and hey, maybe you’ll see me there. Say hi and maybe we can catch up over a tasty vegan lunch!
A second event (or challenge really) that I’m still undecided to participate in is also being put on by this group. [p.s… Girlnetic is free to join] It’s hosted on the site, DietBet.com, and is basically a fitness bet for 28 days. You put in the challenge amount, $25, and at the end of 28 days, if you don’t lose the required amount for that specific challenge (4%), then your money gets distributed to the people who did lose enough, and essentially won. If you are considered one of the winners, you get to split the pot. As of right now, there are FOURTEEN players- meaning the pot is up to $350! I have until Saturday night to decide whether or not I’m going to make the financial commitment and as of this afternoon, I’m leaning yes. More information regarding the challenge and the rules & regulations, click here.
Don’t feel like joining that bet but would like the financial motivation with friends and coworkers? You can create your own bet and wager- I’ve suggested this in my office/department.
Stay healthy and active, my friends!
