Update on the #MillionStep Challenge and Health Tools

Best Buy CouponA couple weeks ago I mentioned I would be participating with 9 bloggers in the Million Step Challenge. It is now January 26th and we only have 4 days left. I will admit I didn’t step up (pun intended) my game until this past week. I have been streaming some TV shows on my iPad and found that I could jump on the treadmill while I watched. This past week I have been averaging 12k steps a day.

As of January 21st we are currently at 689,252 steps, of which I logged 127,925. We are close hopefully in the ten days since the 21st we can meet our goal. I definitely had a “big” day today since the family and I went to the fair. Definitely a lot of walking done today.

Best Buy is excited to have the nine members of our Blogging Board participating in a Million Steps Challenge in January. These bloggers are using health and fitness products, found at Best Buy, to keep track of their steps during the month of January with the goal of hitting 1,000,000 steps together by February 1st. To see how they’re doing, follow @BestBuyWOLF or search #MillionSteps on Twitter. Make sure you post your steps, send them a word or encouragement, or grab a team of your own and see how many steps you can take in January. We’re starting out 2013 with a New Year’s Resolution to live healthy – please join us!

These three weeks I used several tools to help me with the #MillionSteps goal. One of which is one of my FAVORITE devices the Fitbit One. This is what I’m using to tally up my steps. Also in the Fitbit family is the Fitbit Aria scale. I have a love hate relationship with the scale right now. Even though I’m trying to win my DietBet and trying to follow the MediFast plan. I’m kinda status quo right now. Which is still an accomplishment.

However I have had a chance to try out an amazing tool, the Cuisinart Juicer from Best Buy. I had never used a juicer before and was amazed at how easy it was. I decided to start out with something tasty for my daughter and let her pick so me fruits to create a fun fruit choice. She picked grapes, pineapple, and apples. It took me less then 5 minutes to prepare the choice. The Cuisinart Juicer is quick and easy to use, juices in seconds.


Do you have any great juicing recipes? I would love to try some new ones.

All of these health tools the Fitbit One, Fitbit Aria, and Cuisinart Juicer can be purchased at Best Buy. In fact this weekend Best Buy is having a Winter Doorbuster sale, it is like Black Friday all over again. Even better before you head over grab this coupon (especially if you are going to pick up the juicer.

  1. I don’t really have a recipe but I do like mixing blueberries and banana. This would be pretty cool because I never know how to best get the nutrients out of blueberries and this was I could do it without wasting any

  2. Go to the mall and walk around with your chattiest friend. Trust me you will get a lot of miles in…lol.

  3. I used to do a lot of juice fasting. Carrot is surprisingly good. I also put lime, lemon, and ginger root through the juicer and add it to a glass of sparkling water…so good!

  4. You’ve done great! 12K steps a day is a wonderful goal.

  5. Good luck on your goal. I look forward to hearing your updates.

  6. I’m not a smoothie lover so I’ve never used a blender for a drink in my life, lol.

    thanks for the coupons though!

  7. I love making juices!

  8. I did not know Cuisinart had a juicer!

  9. Meghan @JaMonkey says:

    That juicer looks awesome. I wish I could afford one right now.

  10. That’s a nice looking juicer, my husband really wants one. I’ll be sure to mention this to him when he gets home.

  11. I have no recipes but I watched a documentary last week on juicing and I really want to try it for better health. Thanks for reminding me. I can’t do much with exercise so have to do my best with food choices for health more so.

  12. You can totally make the goal! &I want a juicer so bad!

  13. i would love to try juicing

  14. I love making my own juices

  15. NO help on recipes….I’d like to try the Fitbit!

  16. I’m not a juicer.

    But I am extremely literal. When you wrote you that you could ” jump on the treadmill” it gave me pause.


  17. I’ve never juiced (okay, no steroids either. ahha), but I’d love to start!

  18. I don’t own a juicer, so no recipes. My husband would love to get one. We will have to check out Best Buy since it’s his favorite store.

  19. I’ve never used a juicer so I don’t have a favorite recipe yet but I like the look and design of this one. FYI, my dear friend says be careful with fresh ginger in a juicer drink – a little packs a punch!

  20. I have been leaning towards getting a juicer…Best Buy always has great deals!

  21. I love juicing! Hehehe. I’m having a series of posts on my blog with the recipes. :)

  22. What great health tools!

  23. We need a good juicer, Thanks for the coupon!

  24. We own a great juicer however we don’t use it often enough. I’m hoping to see some good (and green!) juicing recipes shared from your readers.

  25. I would love to start juicing this year.

  26. Nicole Strunk says:

    My SO wanted a juicer, but I convinced him that a blendtec or vitamix would be better. We haven’t gotten one though. I would LOVE to get a fit bit. My goals are to start eating a little better, then during Spring and Summer will be be gardening and our chicks will start producing eggs. So in June I am going to totally jump on the health bandwagon. Until then I am just testing the waters.

  27. If you select to do a 2nd spherical of h – CG afterwards on, you’ll have to pay out
    for an additional doctor’s visit and purchase yet another spherical of
    supplies. An important thing to remember when beginning on the HCG diet is that you should observe
    a specific diet plan. WW is one of the most successful plans out
    there and one of the reasons is the food journal.
    Happily, there are oral drops and pills that might
    be taken as an substitute. The diet protocol requests that there is a break between injection therapies as the human body will become sensitizes
    to h – CG and will become ineffective if used in succession.
