Perhaps by now, you’ve heard of Community Medical Center’s Sustainability Team (aka Green Team), but wondering who we are and what we’re doing to impact Community and our environment. First proposed by two members and initiated by CMC CEO Tim Joslin in 2009, a CRMC Green Team was formed in response to employee questions like:

Why do we recycle at home but not at work?
Could there be more healthy food options in the cafeteria?
Are there practical alternatives to gas-powered leaf blowers?

Love it or hate it, it looks like ‘The Biggest Loser’ isn’t going away anytime soon. From day one it has gotten a lot of attention and stirred up controversy. The impact has certainly been felt in the fitness industry for better or worse. It is not uncommon for those of us in the fitness industry to work with new folks that have ‘Biggest Loser’ expectations. It is important to remember that ‘The Biggest Loser’ is a TV show and a “game show” at that!  It is edited for dramatic effect.

When we say thank you, we are acknowledging that we have received a gift. We are expressing gratitude for something that came to us freely, not something we have worked for. To get a bit philosophical about it, by saying "Thank You!" we are acknowledging our inter-dependence; we are naming our need for unearned gifts like water, air and love. Seen this way, expressing our gratitude becomes a way of acknowledging that we are part of the web of life which sustains all that we are, all that we can be and all life on the planet!
