Monday began the Pokéwalker Fitness Challenge hosted by Z of Hipster Please! Our first goal is 21000 steps by the end of Sunday.
"First and foremost, the point of the PFC is to trick ourselves into exercising. It's to get us up from behind our keyboards and walking around a bit, for our own benefit as well as the benefit of our Pokiemanz. Each week we will be faced with a challenge, a specific number of steps to be walked between 12:00 AM Monday and 11:59 PM the following Sunday local time.
The required number of steps will increase each week. Should you fail to meet your walking goal for the week, you are out. That's right, kids, single elimination. We will continue in this manner until only one of us remains. That participant will be the winner, with all the rights and privileges associated with such an esteemed title"
I think most of us will be able to knock the first goal out in under a week. Yesterday I fell a little short on my normal number of steps, but today I should be able to make up for it!
Not that I had any doubts about being able to hit any number of steps this week. It is Sakura-con weekend after all.
If you're interested at all in following our progress, we'll be tracking our steps and talking smack on Twitter under hashtag #PWC (though there is some spam from other randomness being tagged the same).
My Pokémon of choice thus far is my cute little Psyduck. I'm hoping our exercise together will keep us both happy and headache free. :)
