Round to Rock

Round to Rock kicked off Sept 14

Eleven lucky participants in the Round to Rock program kicked off their fitness transformations on Monday, Sept 14 at Seton Medical Center Williamson. The 11 participants divided into teams and while one group learned about proper nutrition and how to decipher what to eat and what to buy in the grocery store, another group did their fitness assessment which involved jumping jack warmups, situps, pushups, and initial weigh-ins. The participants include: Mayor Alan McGraw, State Representative Diana Maldonado, Sharesa Alexander, Teresa Bledsoe, Nate Edwards, Robert Edwards, Bob Eskridge, Jessica Iroanya, Michelle Palmer, Teresa Ramirez, and Brian Sedatole.  
On Tuesday, Sept 15 they worked out from noon - 2 with fitness trainer Carlos Vega for some exercise!  Follow this blog to keep track of the latest workouts, nutrition and exercise tips from the Round to Rock Participants. For more information on the program visit

My name is Brian Sedatole and I am one of the lucky participants chosen for the city's "Round to Rock" program. As I have battled weight all my adult life, I am so thankful for this opportunity. I realy appreciate the support of my co-participants, family, friends and students as I take on this endeavor. The past two days have been great, but not too strenuous due to the trainers  trying to complete a physical assessment of the group.

Today, Wednesday, 9/16, after warming-up, stretching and doing some core work, we ran our first mile with Bobby Craig. I earned my best time ever - 11:32! (Actually it's my only time ever, because I don't think I've ever run a mile before, however, I'm still proud of myself.) Must say that I was pretty winded by the end. Can't wait to see how my time decreases as I begin losing the excess lbs.!

I'm excited to take control of my health again, but this time taking control of it the right way. I've learned alot about myself these past few days, and now I really do believe that anything can be accomplished if you put your mind to it. Hats off to anyone who has a goal that their working towards achieving.
