So far, Beth has lost an additional 7lbs, has signed up for Weight Watchers and has been going to the gym every day. She's signing up for a 5K run in May! "I'm going to train hard so I can plan for a personal best," she says. She's also been making loads of healthy foods at home—including baby food for her grandson. "I think we need to educate up and coming generations on the importance of eating healthy and knowing what you are consuming," she says.
Stacey is working to maintain her weight. "Christmas was very challenging this year from a diet perspective," she says. She participated in a 30 day plank challenge in the month of December and a 5K resolution walk/run in Fredericton.
"I am trying to be more mindful and take stretch breaks in my office, even if it's just for two or three minutes a couple of times a day," says Stacey. "I have re-worked my previous exercise plan to include more yoga and strength training in addition to walking and dancing as my cardio. I've had to bump up the fun factor a little to keep me motivated so I've decided to get back to dancing at home to the music I love (which was something I used to do for exercise as a teen)," she says.
Ellen continues to work out at the gym doing everything from circuit training to weight lifting to cardio. She's training for a Mud Hero relay in Halifax this July with a group from Fredericton. She's currently doing a boot camp every Saturday to prepare for this race. "It's lots of fun and motivating," says Ellen.
