Burpee Challenge

July 31, 2014

p-2837-481_burpees

Beginning August 1st, we will conducting a month-long burpee challenge! We are well aware that burpees are probably not your favorite movement, but we promise to make it worth your while. Anyone who completes the entire challenge will be entered into a drawing for a lululemon athletica gift card. All you have to do is pick up a form from the office, complete each day’s burpees, and turn in your form at the end of the month. The rules of the challenge are on the form that you will receive, and if you have any questions, please talk to Jill. We will also have a chart outside of the office to which you can add your name and track the progress of everyone who’s participating. Yay Burpees!!!!

We’re Wasting Food & Money By Misreading These Labels

We’re Wasting Food & Money By Misreading These Labels
“Sell By,” “Best By,” “Use By.” If food labels are confusing you, you’re not alone. That confusion is causing us to dump tons of perfectly edible food.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service (USDA/ERS) estimated that in 2010, about 133 billion pounds of food (about 31 percent) of the 430 billion pounds of edible food available at the retail and consumer levels in the United States was not eaten as a result of being wasted. It’s a loss of about $161.6 billion in retail value and 1,249 calories per American per day.
On a global scale, food waste amounts to about one-third of food produced for human consumption, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). That’s about 1.3 billion metric tons of food. The richest countries waste nearly as much food as the entire net food production of sub-Saharan Africa.
In a scientific review published in Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety, researchers attribute part of the problem to confusion about these date labels on consumer food products:

Friends, we know it’s hot and your hands get sweaty, but if you use more chalk than a one-room schoolhouse on the pull-up bars, barbells, plates, or any equipment, PLEASE take a few extra seconds and wipe it off at the end of class. You will make the maintenance monkey very happy. Thanks for your cooperation!
