Waaay early because I am a planner. Don't worry I'll remind you all sooner as well.
Sirius has just seen the Minister's newspaper-- is that Peter Pettigrew on Ron Weasley's shoulder?? He must escape before Peter kills Harry! But he can't escape on his own! This is where we come in.
Erstwhile Hogwarts students, get to Azkaban and save Sirius! He promises he will not give your name away or implicate you in the crime. He'll say he escaped alone but we all know you helped.
WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT? We're going to have a fun walking competition at http://community.walkertracker.com
. It's recommended that the average person walk 10,000 steps a day. This competition is set up to require about 7700 steps per day so it's great for beginners. If you're not a beginner and you want to challenge yourself a bit more, try swimming part of the way-- it is the North Sea after all.
How do you participate? The easiest way is to have a pedometer, which is $10-40 for a "cheap" version or maybe you have a fitbit or Nike fuelband or whatever. There are also a ton of FREE pedometer aps for your phones as long as you are willing to keep your phone in your pocket (THE HORRORS, WHO WOULD EVER DO SUCH A THING). I also have an extra if someone is really hard up and wants me to loan you a pedometer.
You can also do all sorts of activities such as swimming, Wii sports, yoga, vacuuming, you name it and keep track of your time. Then use this web site
to convert your time into steps.SERIOUSLY GUYS WE'VE BEEN WALKING FOR THE PAST SIX MONTHS ON THIS THING AND I LOST 17 POUNDS.
I know that not everyone is into weight loss, some people want to get fit, others may just want to prove to all of us how fit they already are XD But it's been fun and I made a few new friends and lost more than a few old pounds so I do NOT want to stop when our current walk ends.
