Walking = Money

Early last year, my company started a Health Miles program where you wear a pedometer and eventually earn some cash when you walk enough steps. It's pretty easy to get to Level 2 and 3, and you get some cash for it, but  most of the money is attained by reaching Levels 4 & 5. Those levels takes a long time and a lot of walking. A few days from now, I will actually reach Level 4 and earn $175!

The cycle starts over again on Jan 26, and I'll be back at Level 1. One of my goals for 2011 is to get to Level 5, which I think I can actually do with enough consistency. The extra money will definitely be nice, but I'm hoping the real rewards show up on the scale and in my energy level.

Good night y'all!


  1. Wow, that's fantastic. I wish my company would do that. And, please, get to Level 5 - make 'em pay ;-)

    Keep us notified of your progress. It will be fun to follow along. Good luck.

  2. Cool! That's a great goal! How many steps do you have to take to be at Level 5?

  3. Incredible - that's worth looking in to!
    And congrats for getting that cashola.....
    What to do to celebrate - Mc Donalds?
    Well..... maybe not!
