H-E-B invites Texans to act on those resolutions to get healthy in 2014 by joining the Slim Down Showdown Challenge, a 10-week, online healthy living course developed for H-E-B’s annual Slim Down Showdown competition.

The course includes recipes, workouts, summaries, videos, and a mobile tracker for weight. It’s great for individuals and workplaces looking to inspire a little “healthy” competition among employees to get fit in the new year.

To help motivate customers, H-E-B will kick off the year with a two-week, in-store Start Fresh Fest featuring samples, cooking demonstrations, and savings on healthy items.

Registration for the Slim Down Showdown Challenge is open now through Friday, Jan. 17, online at Logging eight weeks of continuous activity will enter contestants in a random drawing to win up to $1,000 in H-E-B gift cards. The contest will run through Sunday, March 30.

Participants will take their own wellness journey alongside contestants in the official 2014 H-E-B Slim Down Showdown.

In addition to the free online course, H-E-B is offering low-cost packages for employers to host a weight-loss challenge in their workplace. Options include classes facilitated by a registered dietitian, aggregate reporting to track collective progress, and “train-the-trainer” sessions that teach companies how to run the program in-house.

As H-E-B does every second Saturday, stores with a pharmacy will offer free health screenings on Saturday, Jan. 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Jan. 11-12, all products in H-E-B Healthy Living sections will be offered at a 20 percent discount.

Everyone, including those in the Slim Down Showdown Challenge, can follow their journey at
