Workout of the Day (WOD)

Many of you signed up for Coach Taryns back to basics food challenge and had great success.  Coach Taryn is going to run another one just for the holidays where a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Toys for Tots.  Here is more on it from Coach Taryn:

Back to Basics Holiday Edition

Get after it on Thanksgiving Day, then starting December 1st, join your fellow CFIB members in a friendly, competitive Nutrition Challenge.  There will be NO LIMITATIONS and you’ll get some FREEBIE Cheat cards! Yup, 28 of them in fact (more can be purchased for a small fee - $5 per card, as a donation to Toys 4 Tots. What’s at stake? Well, YOU keeping on track and staying relatively healthy during the holiday’s AND a hefty contribution to the Toys 4 Tots.  I mean, come on, it’s all for the kids, right? So, what’s the skinny??
