Brian Williams Receives the Go Red Power of You Award

May 1, 2013

brianThe American Heart Association has again partnered with Excellus BlueCross BlueShield to recognize an individual whom over the past year has made positive changes and significant steps towards living a healthier life.  No change is too small and every accomplishment is significant to be celebrated!

This year our own Brian Williams was the recipient of the Go Red Power of You award for beginning and maintaining a healthier lifestyle. Brian has stuck to a great workout regiment at a local gym and also has become more conscious of his diet. That combination of exercise and sticking to eating healthier foods has had a positive impact on both his health and is an example for others to follow.

Brian was recognized at today’s Go Red Luncheon and we want to extend our congratulations as well!

Go Red Corporate Challenge Update

April 18, 2013

With the Go Red Corporate Challenge entering its final weeks, we wanted to catch up with some of our First Source staff members who have been setting healthy eating habits, exercising more, and tracking their results. Today, we’re checking in with Michael Orsomarso about what he’s learned.

goredMike“So far the Challenge has taught me a lot about my personal eating/health habits.  While I thought I was eating healthy for a long time prior to beginning the Challenge, I learned that my mentality of what exactly “healthy” meant was a little skewed.  I have since changed my eating habits to incorporate more natural and truly healthy foods instead of what I was eating before:  Greek Yogurt with Kashi vs. Regular Lowfat Yogurt with Special K, baby spinach and peppers with eggs vs. turkey bacon with eggs, etc.  While whole wheat bread may be good for you, there are better alternatives and differences from one brand to another, such as the amount of sugar in the loaf.  One brand of “whole wheat” bread may have more added sugar and high fructose corn syrup than another.  I compare labels and make sure I know what most of the ingredients are, and watch for ones that I can’t even pronounce.  Overall, the Challenge so far has definitely forced me to take a double-look at my eating habits and the foods that I eat.  This is definitely something and a standard that I will hold myself to even after the Challenge has officially ended.”

Brenda Rogowski’s Goals for the Go Red Corporate Challenge

April 9, 2013

brendarogowskiWhy did you sign up for the Challenge?
I signed up because good nutrition and health are very important to me.   I want to set a good example for my daughter who is 5 years old so that she starts off life with healthy eating and exercise habits.

What do you plan to focus on in the next 8 weeks?
I ate a pretty healthy diet before the challenge.  I am a vegetarian and eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains already, but I don’t make time to exercise as often as I’d like to.  I am trying to do more at home but I am also entertaining the possibility of joining a gym or taking group exercise classes.

I’m not sure if you would see it as related to this challenge, but I have set a goal to floss at least once a day and follow with Listerine rinse.  I have never had a strong flossing habit, and I have heard that it can impact heart health.  I want to do it to prevent cavities, as a heart health preventative and to set a better example for my daughter.

What do you hope to accomplish?
I hope create a daily flossing habit and find a way to build cardio workouts into my exercise routine on a regular basis.
