Here at BabyFit, our goal is to create a community that encourages women to stay healthy through regular activity and good nutrition. In that spirit, we have created the BabyFit Walking Challenge for all pre-pregnant, pregnant, and postpartum women-a friendly and fun way to increase your level of fitness. Here's how it works:
1. Pick a virtual destination
Visit the Map My Run website, an interactive tool that allows you to plan your route.
Make it fun! You can send yourself through exciting cities, historical landmarks, and beautiful parks. You could even visit family members who are spread across a state or region.
2. Track your progress
Setup a goal on BabyFit to walk a certain number of miles per day or week. Every time you complete a goal you will be awarded 3 BabyPoints! (Sign in and click on "My Fitness" on the left side. In the Cardio section, click on "Add/Remove Other Exercise Goals" to create your daily or weekly walking goal.)
If you are using a pedometer, track your mileage after each walk. (If you are using a base model pedometer, this Pedometer Calorie and Distance Calculator can help you convert steps into miles.)
3. Celebrate Milestones
Each time you reach a major accomplishment, share it with the team on the Message Boards. Celebrate each step along the way. After all, it could take some of us a year or more to reach our goals. Join a virtual walking or running group in the "Workout Clubs and Challenges" forum for more motivation and inspiration.
4. Inspire Others
