I recently became a board member for a new group for Virtual Assistants. This group was developed for a very different reason to the existing forums. It is recognised that there is a downside to working at home – and that is the lack of exercise and increased tendency to just snack through the day. If you have been a Virtual Assistant for more than 6 months you’ll know what I’m talking about.
I love being at home and wouldn’t swap it for anything but I have to admit that I have definitely put weight on and the lack of exercise has been because I’m reluctant to go out – I love it in my home and my office very much. Just over a year ago I joined Weight Watchers and my husband and I invested in a treadmill and exercise bike at Christmas time – both of these things have assisted in my losing 2/3 of the weight I’d put on in a 10 year period. But it is important to have ‘buddies’ to check in with regularly to help you keep on track with your weight loss, healthy eating, exercise and generally healthy lifestyle. So, enter DiVAs.
Virtual DiVAs was formed to help female professionals and entrepreneurs who work online to adopt a healthier, more balanced lifestyle. It is their mission to help each other achieve great success in life without sacrificing the things that really count: health, happiness and family.
Virtual DiVAs is hosting its first “Open House” event, a free Skypecast/”Girl’s Night Out” on Wednesday, June 28th at 7:00PM EST. The Virtual DiVAs and Gillian Hood-Gabrielson, an Intuitive Eating Coach and President of Healthier Outcomes, have collaborated to stage this special event to impact the lives and health of virtual women professionals. Gillian specializes in helping women entrepreneurs overcome emotional eating in order to achieve their natural weight.
The Open House event, our Group H.U.G., features Gillian’s teleclass, “5 Steps to Break Out of Diet Prison”. Connect with other women professionals and learn how to gain better control of your health during this exciting, complimentary event.
