March is National Nutrition Monday and there is no better way to celebrate and have some fun than with a nutrition challenge. The Fuel Your Life Challenge is a self-administered 4-week nutrition challenge designed to support participants to improve their eating habits. It will run from Monday, March 7th through Friday, April 1st. Each week of the challenge is focused on a different goal:
- Week 1 – Making a small change to improve an eating habit
- Week 2 – Upgrading lunch to be healthier
- Week 3 – Cutting down consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages
- Week 4 – Planning and preparing meals
There is no need to sign up for the challenge. Information for each week will be posted on Monday of each of the four weeks of the challenge in the GMHEC Well-being calendar (the attachments will be available in the calendar, calendar password is GMHECWell-Being). To complete the challenge and be entered into each week’s raffle, participants must submit the weekly tracker via email to Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org either as an attachment or as a screen shot no later than the following Monday by 5pm. Share your progress on our Facebook page and cheer on your coworkers.
The final submissions must be received by Monday, April 4th. Winners will be announced on the following Wednesdays. This challenge is open to anyone but prizes are reserved for faculty and staff of the GMHEC colleges. We’ve got some great prizes including gift cards and Garmin Venu smartwatches, so we hope you’ll join us.
