Maintain Don't Gain Challenge

Manchester Wellness Committee Maintain Don't Gain ChallengeThe holiday season can be a stressful time, and 2020 brings a whole new level of complication to the season. Instead of focusing on losing weight during such a hectic time of year, we encourage folks to maintain their weight throughout the holiday season.

During the season we will send out tips and challenges to help you stay encouraged and motivated. While there is no participation requirement, we encourage you to weigh yourself about once a week so you know whether you are staying on track.

Happy Holidays from the Wellness Committee!   

Employee Step Challenge

Starting in January of 2020 the City of Manchester Wellness Committee will be challenging employees to get stepping. Each month throughout the year a step goal will be given and employees are challenged to reach it or surpass it. If you reach the goal submit your total steps for the month using our online form or submit your tracking sheet to wellnesscommittee@manchesternh.gov. Just enter your daily steps and it will add your total steps for the month. 

Download Worksheet

Each month a $25 gift card will be raffled off to those who complete their step goals. At the end of the year if someone reaches all the step goals they will be entered in a raffle for a $100 gift card.

Winners will be randomly selected by the Human Resources Department on the 15th of the following month.

January 2020: Remove a Vice

Instructions: Choose one vice that challenges your wellness. Whatever it is, it should be challenging! For each day you are able to go without your vice, give your calendar a checkmark.

Goal: See how many days you can cut your vice completely this month. Can you make it a whole week? How about the whole month?
