A Body Challenge, Weight Watchers Gains Momentum, and Pink Gloves
The National Body Challenge kicks off, Weight Watchers unveils a new plan, and one fun shopping bonus.
New Year, New National Body Challenge
Have a bad habit that needs breaking? Discovery Health wants to help. Its sixth-annual National Body Challenge is in full-swing, providing thousands with meal plans, workouts, healthy recipes, message boards and a free 30-day pass to any Bally Total Fitness. Heck they even have Gilad.
The free online program lasts eight weeks and is paired with a TV show, aptly named National Body Challenge. Like any good reality show, the competition pairs a diverse group of individuals (from a partying musician to an athlete-turned-couch-potato to a decadent chef). The series airs January 5-9 at 8 p.m. Eastern on Discovery Health.
If you’re going to go on a “diet,” Weight Watchers is probably one of the best ones you can do. On the whole, it’s all about lifestyle changes, realistic results and regular activity. But, the one thing that has always bothered me about the program is that it doesn’t always emphasize the healthiest of foods. In fact, many Smart Ones branded Weight Watchers foods have ingredient lists that are waaay too long for my regular-eating liking. While the Smart Ones don’t seem to be going anywhere, Weight Watchers recently unveiled a new plan that brings healthy, filling foods front and center. Hooray!
Now that Christmas is over, you probably thought your shopping was done for at least a few months, right? Wrong! Any good shopper knows that this week is ideal for finding good bargains as everything is on sale! Case in point, the goods at Lucy.com. They’re currently running a deal where you get a free pair of pink (yes, pink!) boxing gloves whenever you buy the new lucy Power Cardio Pant. The pant features powerful compression, moisture-wicking fabric and smooth supportive stretch, and is perfect for yoga or anything at the gym. The deal is only good for the first 500 orders, so get to clicking!
