Congratulations to team Get ‘ER done, the top point earner for New Year, New You challenge week seven. Team Get ‘ER done includes seven participants from Jamestown Regional Medical Center’s Emergency Department.

NYNY is an eight-week wellness challenge. And, it encourages participants to develop positive lifestyle changes.

NYNY is certainly about exercising and eating right. It’s also about staying healthy. Improve and maintain health by making healthy choices.

Nutrition is an integral part of overall health, healing and disease prevention.

JRMC Nutrition Services Manager & Registered Dietitian, Holly Kiehl said it is important to practice being mindful of what you eat.

“Before reaching for something to munch on, stop and think whether this food is nourishing your body or causing disease,” said Kiehl. “Learn to eat to maintain overall health and well-being. Start by making a single healthy choice, which often leads to more healthy choices. It is about creating sustainable healthy choices that lead to a balanced lifestyle.”

With one week left, use this time to try out new healthy recipes like this week’s slow cooker chicken fajitas and honeycrisp salad. Earn one point for trying a NYNY recipe of the week.

Finally, enjoy this week’s community activity outside of normal activities and yield five bonus points this week. In addition, earn extra points for the work-friendly Lose Your Lap exercises and the more intense High-Intensity Interval Training.

To clarify, team points are due by 8 a.m. on Tuesday.
