It's a new year, new month, new challenge!

Our challenge is to do 10,000 steps in a day. You can do this for any one day or try for the entire month. Jump right in at any time! You can set a lower or higher goal if you wish. Our main goal is to keep activate every day!

It's easy to join - Just post here to begin! You can also jump in anytime during the month, too.

You will need a step counter to keep track of your steps and then post your results daily here.

Welcome to our Monthly Step Challenge!

    Welcome! I'm bumping my steps to 7000 this month. I've been doing more walking lately, even though I have a sedentary job. This will challenge me a bit more.

    My daily step goal is 7000, as I have a sedentary job (bumped up from 6000 last month, as I'm trying to get to the gym more)

    Jan 1 -- 10,365
    Jan 2 -- 7297

    My daily step goal is 10,000, but I normally exceed it.

    Good start to the month so far!

    I’m in. Desk job M-F, a husband that works nights and two little ones at home that don’t make it easy for Mom to get 10k steps a day. But, I’m fitting it in anywhere I can.

    1/1/19 - 7,243
    1/2/19 - 10,277
