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!
