We are in the final stretch of #GreyCupFitUp presented by SunLife! Playoffs are here which means Grey Cup is quickly approaching and the CFL Content Team is hitting the road to keep you informed on the biggest story lines over the next three weeks! I am covering the Western Semi-Finals and Western Finals and am lucky enough to be starting the roadtrip with my friend/colleague Kristina Costabile. We have committed to morning workouts every day this week and today we got started in a BIG way! Having someone keep you accountable down the final stretch is so helpful in sticking to your goals , so see if there is someone you can connect with who may want to join you for these last few weeks. If not our Twitter and Instagram community #GreyCupFitUp will be there to cheer you on!
This week the theme seemed to be huge progress and stormy weather! You guys fought through winter storms, darker days and slippery conditions and got creative with your workouts. It’s incredibly inspiring to watch you push through the uncomfortable conditions (remember August…) and you’re doing so well. Finally, there are some huge progress Tweets that made me smile – shoutout to Trent Ferguson! Keep the Tweets coming and keep up the incredible work – you will thank yourself on Grey Cup Sunday and I cannot wait to celebrate your successes. Note: scroll to the bottom to read the most amazing Tweet from Murray McCormick!

Thank you @cfl @BrodieLawson for #GreyCupFitUp My health change focuses on nutrition. Control nighttime snacking and portion sizes. Down >10 lbs. Was slipping before Halloween but back on track. If I make it to Grey Cup I might need new belts.

Today was a good day for #GreyCupFitUp. I broke through a plateau and acheived my current C25K target, after a few weeks (!) of trying and falling short. Now to build on it and move to the next level! (Did some bodyweight strength training too, for good measure.)

I JINXED IT! Huge blizzard and -20 winds and blowing snow. Managed 3k but one of us swore the entire time.🙋🏼♀️ Wanted to get a pic outside but couldn’t feel any part of my body (or see for that matter) @YogaWithBird before bed tonight to see if it helps me sleep.😴 #GreyCupFitUp 82 pic.twitter.com/W1HjvLAz6O

On Day 82 of #greycupfitup the #footballfittie planned to walk outside, but it was too cold and slippery. So on the treadmill for 45 minutes and finished with yoga stretches. I have noticed an improvement in… https://t.co/ZHJtQ6q563

#GreyCupFitUp Day 81 (I think…)
✈️ overnight flight to Paris for 4 days of meetings.
🏃🏻♀️ 6.5k run through the beautiful Bois de Boulogne. Great way to re-emerging after a long flight.
Time for a quick nap before my first meetings this evening! pic.twitter.com/LA8rzHotWQ

A HUGE shoutout to Murray McCormick who has been dedicated from day 1 but making sure he got a workout in before attending his daughter’s wedding…Murray you are our hero! Congratulations on the happy occasion.
A special Day 79 for the #footballfittie on #greycupfitup. Middle daughter Mallory getting married and made working out a priority @drivenyqr before partying. Missing today’s #riders game, but family first eh?… https://t.co/p87FKxGd1v
