Coming Full Circle: Discovery Channel's National Body Challenge

Hey all, I'm doing a little publicity for the Discovery Channel's National Body Challenge.

National Body Challenge is a FREE, comprehensive fitness and weight-loss challenge that provides the tools and inspiration - online, on television and beyond. Among the offerings include a free 30-day pass to Bally Total Fitness, access to customizable meals and fitness plans, over 1,000 healthy recipes and more.

A contact at their interactive agency contacted me to write a post about the program. But, I'm not posting just because someone contacted me. I actually worked for the Discovery Health Channel a few years ago and learned about this program from the inside out. They put a lot of effort into making it comprehensive and motivating. Actually, that is where I learned about blogs, especially health and weight loss blogs, and what motivated me to start my blog. I wouldn't say that working there made me want to lose weight, it was just the right place at the right time I suppose. So, to be contacted by them to promote this program, is just a lovely way to come full circle. (And I realize that by sharing this information, they may realize who I am in "real life," but I think I'm okay with that.)

So, I'll also update you later this week on some of the interesting information I find on the site.

I'm excited about all of your goals! Why do you have one that says 'did not meet expectations' at work. Did you have more than one before, and now you want less? Or are you just wanting to 'stick it to the man' but only in small quantities? :)

Thanks for being so encouraging as I make my way back in.

Hey there KL!

Yeah, I had a big long explanation as to why I would say I actually wanted 1 "did not meet ..." on my evaluation - it's because I was told by my boss when I got hired that she's been promoted like 3 times in 5 years and she's never gotten an evaluation without a "did not meet ..." on it. I got one on my last evaluation. So, if that's the standard my boss is going with, I realize I'm never going to have an evaluation without one, I just don't want more than one. Okay, sorry, too long of an explanation. :)

Good goals for the year....I hope you meet them.
I quit doing resolutions a few years ago....maybe that's my problem but my goals I do make are for all year round not in January.
I hope you had a nice time off from work.
