Guardian challenge on again

LATE last year the New Norfolk Guardian Pharmacy offered a six week "Be Good To Yourself Challenge" to its customers. The challenge focused on losing weight, improving health markers and increasing fitness levels, all whilst being supported by pharmacy staff and the Be Good To Yourself program. Some 18 "Challengers" signed up in October, including our the pharmacy's wellness coach Nicole Lawrence undertook the challenge alongside customers.

"Each week for six weeks our Challengers came back for progress updates and support; all of the Challengers have improved aspects of their lifestyle, their eating habits and fitness, as well as gained confidence in their ability to make healthy changes," Nicole said. "The Be Good To Yourself Weight Management Program is a comprehensive meal replacement program that focuses on whole body wellness and our Wellness Coaches provide advice and motivation to help Challengers achieve and maintain their goals." At the end of the six weeks the group had lost a total of 62.6 kg, 104.5cm and a combined 96.4% body fat.

The next Be Good To Yourself Challenge kicks off this Tuesday, January 15 and runs for eight weeks. This New Year Challenge includes an option to participate in the New Norfolk Australia Day Fun Run or Walk and enter as a team with the pharmacy staff members and their families. To register your interest, speak to a New Norfolk Guardian Pharmacy wellness coach or join the event "New Year's Resolution & Welcome Back 8 Week Challenge" on Facebook - www.facebook.com/Newnorfolkguardianpharmacy

All results are confidential and there is a prize at the end of the eight weeks. Tuesday night is the official start of the challenge but participants can start any day this week. Call in to the pharmacy in High St or phone 6261 2246.
