ok.. we have decided to resurrect the challenge..
the 10,000 step challenge is so simple .(.why even a cave man can do it.. he he)
just try to ensure that you take 10,000 steps every day, or as close as you can to it.
You can fit it into any busy lifestyle.. infact , you really do not need to put much extra or extraordinary effort into it.
All you need is a pedometer ( little gizmo which counts your steps.)
You can get the most basic of pedometers, although some people have found that the real cheap ones sometimes do not work.
i got mine here. I got the base model which measures steps and distance.
mine is the SW 401 Y
here is all the info and a website you can go to to learn more ( what more to learn is there, really?)or to purchase one of their pedometers.
I can vouch for the quality of their pedos,.
consumer reports , i think, recommended them.

hope people will decide to participate.
i had mine on today, but for some reason, it fell off its perch.. One requisite is that the pedometer be on a waistband.. for best results.. mine was in a pocket so i did not get an accurate reading.
if you do not get enough steps in your busy lifestyle, you can make up for the deficit in the evenings on a rebounder, or around the house or block or field.. whatever floats your boat..
anyone up for the challenge?
i suppose we could post on following days to report in as to progress, or whatever.
the thread remains open for subsequent interest or lack thereof.
