Today's the Day!

Hello Step it Uppers,
 
Welcome to the 3rd Step it Up: Holiday Edition challenge. We know this is a stressful time for many, and we hope that this challenge will help you to focus on self-care through physical activity, eating well and getting support from others.
 
Here's what you can expect from the challenge this year:
  • Points for your steps, physical activity, and fruit and vegetable intake (maintaining your weight will earn you bonus points - but weight tracking is always optional). Wondering how to count cups of fruits and vegetables? This resource can help!
  • Prize drawings for ten gift cards every week. Be sure to log your points by Tuesday morning, as that's when the gift card drawings will take place.
  • Weekly emails on Wednesdays. In these emails, we'll share information and resources about the challenge and about the week's healthy eating focus. We'll also announce the weekly prize winners!
Remember to log in to stepitup.ucsf.edu daily to enter your points!
Need an email reminder? Sign up here to receive a quick, fast email reminder every weekday.
 
It's not too late to get others to join the challenge! Participate in our recruitment contest (open through Friday, 11/18) and you'll be entered in a drawing for a Fitbit or a gift card. Learn more here.
 
Head over to Chatter and find walking buddies and share ideas and resources. Those who participate in our Chatter group will be eligible for a special prize drawing!
 
Looking for a way to be more active during the challenge?  Get $50 off a UCSF Fitness & Recreation 10-visit pass.  Offer available 11/14-12/31. More details here.

That's all for now - we'll be back on Wednesday with this week's healthy eating focus. Until then, get some exercise or walking in and eat those fruit and veggies.
