1. Exercise Minutes: 20 Minutes of Daily Exercise = 1 point
Earn 1 point for 20-29 total minutes of exercise, 1.5 points for 40-59 total minutes of exercise, or 2 points for 60 or more total minutes of exercise.
ONLY count activities specifically done for the purpose of exercise.
Examples: walking, running, biking, elliptical, swimming laps, strength training, doing a workout video or class, etc.
The 20 minutes of exercise can be accumulated throughout the day. For example: 10 minutes of walking in the morning and 10 minutes of biking after work equals 20 minutes of exercise.
Pedometer Steps: Take 8,000 Daily Steps = 1 Point
Earn .5 points for taking 4,000-7,999 daily steps and earn a full point for taking 8,000 or more daily steps.
You must wear an accurate pedometer/fitness tracker to track your daily steps.
Steps do NOT carry over (3,000 steps on Monday and 5,000 steps on Tuesday does not equal 8,000 daily steps).
Need a way to track your steps? Purchase a pedometer (these can be found for a good price on amazon.com), use a FitBit, or download one of the many phone apps that counts your steps (iPhone’s Apple Health counts your steps for you automatically!)
*Be sure to bring your phone with you wherever you walk if you go that route!
H2O Intake: 64 oz. Daily = 1 Point
Track your daily water intake & earn one point for every day you succeed in drinking 64+ ounces.
No Sweets EACH day = 1 Point
We know, we know! We believe in you though!

Electronic Free Meal: GO DARK for at least 1 Meal Each Day = 1 Point
Shut ALL electronics (TV, computer, tablet, phone, etc.) off and enjoy a distraction free meal with your family, friends, coworkers, or yourself. Let your mind relax and enjoy your surroundings.
What will you learn when you go dark for an hour?
