If anyone is interested we could start a group over there, noone has to but would be nice to compare how each other is doing. It does not show personal info just how many participants are involved in the percentile score.

I just got the email from Lauren and signed up. I was already a member and had totally forgotten about it so I was able to log my walk from today and I'm on my way! Thanks for the reminder, Gemstone, and great going for the awards! Way cool!

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things. Phil4:8

Sounds good to me. I'll try to keep up with for at least the rest of this year. Would be interesting to find out how much better I could get in that time.

I haven't stopped doing it. It seems that there are more and more levels to go up. After you get the active lifestyle patch/emblem you can elect to continue onto the medal type awards. All points are cumulative.

Wow! Thats a lot of awards. Great going! I can only ever hope to be active enough to earn more than the first award. Can you join again once your time is up ?

I got my awards in the mail today. I now am the proud owner of a "patch", a gold medal, a ribbon, some stickers (eh), and lapel pins--one gold, one bronze and one silver. My family is very impressed. And I love the "awards". I am working towards the next level now. It really is fun and motivating.

I joined up almost a week ago. I love it. Still a ways to go before I earn an award but knowing I'm working up towards one is great motivation.

There is a wonderful program that is free to join and offers tangible rewards for increasing physical activity. Pretty much any activity (includes household chores, yard work, walking etc) counts towards the points you earn. There are multiple levels and multiple awards. I cut and pasted the description below directly from the webpage.

"The Active Lifestyle program shows you how to make a commitment to staying active and how to stick to it. The program helps you set realistic goals to encourage fitness for a lifetime. The rules are simple. You can choose from all kinds of activities. We'll also give you a personal activity log to guide you every step of the way.

Because your hard work shouldn't go unrecognized, you can also earn awards. You can earn the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA) by performing regular activity beyond your daily activity goal of (30 minutes a day for adults/60 minutes a day for youths under 18) at least 5 days per week, for a total of 6 weeks. As an alternative you can count your daily activity steps using a pedometer.

That means if you stick with the program, you can earn an award in a little over a month. So what are you waiting for?"

Here is the address that will take you to the sign up page. You can type it into your browser or copy and paste it into your browser.

https://www.presidentschallenge.org/the_challenge/active_lifestyle.aspx

I've been logging in my activity since March and I've just ordered my first sets of awards. Even if you decide not to participate, it's worth checking out and it is free.

If you decide to participate, post your award points here!
