First I want to acknowledge that this National Nurses Week. Thank you fellow nurses for your tireless and compassionate work caring for the sick and for teaching people healthy living skills.
I am always looking for fun ways to promote nutrition and exercise to kids and families. Well Fit Factor Kids is promoting a walking event by creating a team that will walk 100,000,000 million steps! Sounds crazy? Not really, because we all make up the team! And together we can all log in quite a few steps. They are asking everyone to reply to their blog and share the number of steps you walk. They make it easy, because you can send them your steps by email, facebook, twitter etc once a day, once a week or whatever is easiest for you. They will tally it all up.
This kind of challenge reminds me of trying to break a world record when we were kids! This can be one of those fun things you do with the kids and track your steps for the whole family each time you walk. Just think what a great message you will be sending kids and a fun challenge for the whole family to make an event out of it and see how many steps you can add towards this 100,000,000 million steps.
Walking is one of the best exercises and easy to do and great family time too. Join the virtual walking team it's fun and healthy!
