JANTASTIC

Over the month of January, we set our members the task of evaluating their eating habits and chosing their own changes or areas to concentrate on.  Each area was worked on for 5 days at a time.  Each day, whoever chose the task passed on to somebody else for the next day and so on.  The reason we chose to do each activity for 5 days is so that it starts to become habit forming.

Well done and thank you to all that took part, and a massive congratulations to those who worked hard enough and have seen the great results!!
