Day 4 of the 10,000 steps a day challenge!

Did you know we have 42 people in this challenge?  I think that is absolutely fantastic!  Palomar College employees rock!

The realistic way to build up to 10,000 steps a day:  “The goal of taking 10,000 steps in a day is a rough equivalent to the Surgeon General’s recommendation to accumulate 30 minutes of activity most days of the week. It should be enough to reduce your risk for disease and help you lead a longer, healthier life. But not everyone should start right out trying to get 10K a day. So instead take a comfortable, gradual approach — the 20% Boost Program” ~PBS America’s Walking

So, How did you do today? Do you think you can boost your steps by 20% tomorrow?

Day 3 of the challenge!

There is a request to get some information together about when everyone is taking walks throughout the day.  So, please respond to this post with your total steps for the day AND when you walk around campus.  Let’s try to get some walking groups together!

Day 2 of the 10,000 steps challenge!

Here are a couple links you may find helpful:

Remember we have 3 exercise activities available FREE to employees this semester.  I hope you will join us on Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:30-1:30 for Jazzercise, and Wednesday mornings 7-8am for circuit training.  They are held in the aerobics room, G-8.  If you can only make it for 30 minutes that’s ok!  Some exercise is better than none.  Hope to see you there.

So, how did you do today?  Did you do better than Day 1?
