Somewhere in the world, 2012 is being welcomed in... Just not here in Colorado. Not yet.
So after some thought here are the 2012 Challenge, Rules, ... er, no, guidelines.
(average) 10,000 steps a day.
First week begins January 1, 2012. First week, wear the pedometer of your choice. First week is baseline week. For each week thereafter add average of 500 steps per week. Each week note the average steps per week for that preceeding week.
Goal to reach average of 10,000 steps a day in the safest manner possible, and maintain for the year.
