Well today is July 1st. You know what that means don'tcha? That's absolutely right. It's the official start of The Big Girl Big Step Challenge. Once again here's how it all works.
Strap on your pedometers and start walking. Every day, keep track of your steps. At the end of the month, I'll ask everyone who has participated to email me or leave me a comment with the step count of their one biggest day. I might, during the course of the month ask for step counts just to update everyone as to ball park figures but, I'm not sure if that's really necessary. We can chat about that later.
By having the whole month, I figure this way if you have a bad day, or two or seven you still have lots of opportunities to have one really really big day. Or if you're not quite sure you want to participate yet and haven't "signed up", you can do so now or anytime during the month, just leave me a comment or email me.
So basically, just walk as much as you can and log your steps.
Besides hopefully reaping all the benefits of walking, all of you who email me your total at the end of the month will be eligible to win a piece of jewelry made by yours truly, picked in a random drawing and for the top 3 steppers I'll be getting you gift cards from your favorite store.
So far we have these people all ready to get out there:
40 x 40
If you've already told me you're planning on joining us but don't see yourself on this list, sorry I've left you off. Please let me know so I can include you.
Have fun and please remember to play nice.
And if anyone cares out there, I had NONE of the dinner options from yesterday's post. The Husband worked way too late, in fact, past mid-night last night, so I called my mom up and took her to dinner at our favorite Japanese restaurant. It's closing sometime soon because the owner is moving to Hawaii. We've been eating at his place for nearly 20 years now and I'm certainly going to miss him, and his food.
