2 years ago I decided to make a change in my health. I ate better. I picked up running. And I used a social networking tool to help keep me accountable. And it worked......and has worked to this day.
Think about it. We use popular social network tools for keeping up with friends, sharing good news, and even finding dinner recipes, why not use it to keep in shape too??
Cafe' Well is on the forefront of this!! Cafe Well has wellness promotion and management tools on their site to keep you accountable to your fitness goals. One of my favorites is their Race to the Moon corporate wellness program. Race to the Moon offers a free pedometer that tracks your steps (through running or walking), and rewards your milestones and total steps with incentives & fun through social networking applications. Race to the Moon is only available to select Health America members - so if you are one, take advantage of this awesome program!
January is the month to do it - the month where we all have the motivation to get fit, so why not use a tool that helps keep you accountable to it?
If I could design a challenge, it would be one with all my bloggy besties - a workout challenge between all of us. Who can walk the furthest?? Wouldn't it be fun to all challenge ourselves? We have the perfect medium through our blogs to keep each other accountable! And I know there are some motivated people out there!!
How long do you think it could take us to Race to the Moon?? Who's in??
