1 million steps in 100 days

Tomorrow, the University of Notre Dame’s Official Walking Club will start a challenge for its members which sounds like this: 1 MILLION STEPS IN 100 DAYS! This mean a goal of 10,000 steps per day between September 1st – December 9th.

But maybe you’re asking why I’m telling you this. Well, you may take it as a healthy tip, which sounds like this: “WHY DON’T YOU TRY THIS AT HOME, ON YOUR OWN?”.

If you’ll decide to follow my tip, then you should know that you have 2 options to track your steps:

  1. a pedometer – I know you might say that pedometers are very expensive, but the cheapest one can do a great job, because you need just something to count your steps, not distance, calories, speed or… other things like those.
  2. an app on your smart-phone – if you own a smart-phone running Android, iOS, BlackBerry or Windows you’ll find for sure in its app-market an app which can track your steps due to the accelerometer built-in you phone, so you just need to keep in your pants’ pocket.

Starting tomorrow and untill December 9th we’re in an un-official challenge. Meanwhile, post in comments stats of your work!

Do you think you can reach this goal?


Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.

The big picture of o

Sometimes it’s better to let your mind fly away for a few seconds to perceive the big picture of your life or even better: to forget all about problems, but never forget to return.

My very first post

Pics ‘N Tips it’s a new concept of a personal blog. It’s not some kind of a diary or a gossip place, it’s something  with photos, curiosities and any other things from all over the world that can make you forget about the problems from the outside, so you have to remember: HERE YOU’LL FIND ONLY :-) THINGS.

Everything here will make you smile and to support me to keep writing, just share the blog and its posts with your friends and join the community of people who use to smile here everyday.
