Six Weeks to a Younger You: Giveaway!

September 16, 2011 at 1:12 pm , by

We finished blogging our Six Weeks to a Younger You plan, but that doesn’t mean it’s over. To really reap the benefits, you’ve got to keep up with it—even if you fumble every once in a while.

My favorite part of the whole plan is from week one: wear a pedometer. I had never used one before, even though I’d heard “you need to aim for 10,000 steps a day” a million times. But after I finally tried it, I was surprised that on my first day I reached nearly 5,000 steps. When I told my sister, she immediately ordered two pedometers for her and her husband so they could compete with each other—and with me. So far, she’s winning because she works from home and paces around the house on conference calls. It really makes a difference!

So, to remind you to keep up with your Younger You habits, we’re going to give away three really great pedometers, courtesy of Omron. (Michael F. Roizen, M.D., chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic and member of the LHJ Medical Advisory Board, once told us that he likes Omron pedometers, so we called the company and asked for a few samples. That’s me with our prizes, above.)

All you have to do is comment on this blog, below (or on our Facebook page; just hit the Like button to post) and tell us one thing you do to be healthier.

We’ll draw three random names on Monday afternoon. Cheers to a Younger You!

  1. I walk everyday to be healthier. Some days I do not have the motivation, but I force myself, and always feel better afterwards!

  2. I have started out getting up an hour earlier to work out. I try to mix it up so I do not get bored. It’s only a start but at least I am moving.

  3. I try to drink more water and eat healthier all the time. I no longer eat meat of any kind too. More veggies and fruit. Thanks, Cecilia CECE

  4. after seeing some not flattering pictures of myself, i copied them and put them in various places to remind me how much I gained and to motivate me to be good. It’s been working for 2 months now. Feel so much better. Aim to lose 80 pounds, one at a time

  5. I became a vegetarian and eliminated dairy from my diet I look younger and feel great, it has really made a big difference in my life and health.

  6. First, we became vegetarians 2 years ago, then when my husband was diagnosed with diabetes, I changed our diet so that we both eat the same –only he gets more calories according to our individual needs. His blood sugar is now in the normal range, his last AC1 was 5.8, his cholesterol is back in the low range and I have lost about 40 pounds, my husband has lost 30 pounds. We love our new lifestyle–though we wish there were more vegetarian menus that were also low in sugar!

  7. I have Hypertension,but i know if I exersize every day it will bring my numbers down,so i make Myself do the treadmill or take my dog for a walk,I take my blood pressure later and it is always lower by quite a few points.

  8. Three years ago, I began a change in my life. I eliminated any added sodium from my diet, started walking daily, cut my portions, and began to eat 5 or 6 meals a day. I’ve slipped and fell a couple times, but I always get back up. As long as I’m breathing, I will not quit. For myself, my husband, and my two beautiful kids!
