As for the rules:

Rule 1:

·         EVERYTHING counts! Anything you do that contributes to fitness or nutrition can be logged in on a daily basis, even if you only do one thing or the other. Remember, lifestyle changes do not occur over night, so we are giving everyone a whole month to keep working on it every day.

o   Any fitness: Any activity, whether it’s walking or weight training, counts toward the Green Step Challenge. Did you play a game of hoops with the kids? Or how about take the dog for a walk? Log it in! Consider putting on a pedometer in the morning and then record your steps at the end of the day. Remember, it takes 10,000 steps a day for a healthy heart.

o   Any nutrition: Did you choose a salad instead of a burger for lunch? Or maybe you decided to eat carrots instead of chips or frozen yogurt instead of ice cream. Perhaps you’re eating six small meals a day instead of three big ones. Log it in!

Rule 2:

·         Post only what is comfortable for you. If your goal is to lose weight and you want to post your weight or inches as you go along, you may do so. If you would rather not, then don’t. Just post some of the steps you’re taking to accomplish your goal. This Challenge is all about incorporating a healthy lifestyle, so go with whatever motivates you. Remember, this should be about having fun, not dread.

Rule 3:

·         The 2011 Challenge begins May 1st and ends May 31st. You may join at any time, but the earlier you join the more entries you have in the drawing. Thirty-one days of entries equals thirty-one chances at prizes if you make an entry every day!

Rule 4:

·         You will receive one entry for every day of the month that you post something to the Green Step Challenge discussion thread on Facebook. If you are not a Facebook member, you may post your steps on our Green Step Challenge blog.
