2012 GO GREEN GET FIT CHALLENGE!
The 12-Week Go Green Get Fit Challenge officially kicks off June 18, 2012 and runs through September 9, 2012. Each member of our Green Blogger Team is posting weekly throughout this 12 week period to help motivate and inspire our collective readers to Go Green and Get Fit this Summer! This event is part of the Sustain Your Self™ Program from our non-profit partner EcoMom Alliance. Presented by PlanetShoes.com
For 12 weeks, June 18-September 9, 2012, 30 Exceptional Green Bloggers, Leading Health and Wellness Brands & Organizations, Coaches, Nutritional Experts and Fitness Trainers will join together and offer information, inspiration, and motivation to help women prioritize their health, get fit, lose weight, reduce stress and have fun along the way!
Why we are doing this:
- In 2010, only 16.4% of women age 18 and older met the 2008 Federal Physical Activity Guidelines (US Center for Disease Control (CDC) 2012).
- Among women age 20 and older, the following are overweight or obese: 59.3% of non-Hispanic whites; 70.8% of non-Hispanic blacks and 75.1% of Mexican Americans (CDC, 2012)
- A 2008 Center for Disease Control study found a majority of American women overextended, depressed, anxious and isolated. (CDC 2008)
- One in three female adults has some kind of cardiovascular disease (CDC, 2012)
- Personal health and environmental health are intertwined and equally important, yet women often allow their personal health to take a back seat to other demands in their lives
- To Nurture the Women Who Nurture their Families and our World.
- To support women in taking Better Care of Them Selves and give them the tools to make health and wellness a permanent and sustainable priority in their lives
- To Play More, Spend More Time In Nature, Connect More with Friends and Family: Hiking, Exercising, Exploring…and much more!
