I mentioned the health incentives that Magnum's company offers its employees and spouses? How we jump through their hoops like trained animals going for the treat bucket?
Most of them don't even involve doing healthy stuff, to be honest. We each had our screenings, where we're just told what our various numbers and suggested ways to get them better. Another hoop was filling out our online questionnaire to assess how healthy our lifestyles are. One interesting question was, "Do you smoke?" with answer choices "Yes", "No", "I don't know".
How would I not know whether I smoke or not?
BUT I digress. The latest incentive actually requires some work. Pedometer bling!
Starting tomorrow, we will be entered into a daily random drawing for each day we get in 7,000 or more steps. The contest lasts 21 days, meaning we can get in 21 entries. I just snapped this photo, note that I've already got over 9,000 and I haven't even taken China for the daily beauty walk. >7,000 per day is not a major undertaking. This is just my morning calisthenics play plus a few trips back and forth across the morning crosswalk.
On a related side note, I got to wondering why "pedestrian" and "pedophile" had the same word root. One is a Greek root, the other Latin. No relation. Good to know, I don't want to lose my job over a "pedophile meter".
ANYWAY, since I hardly ever win random drawing type prizes, and this drawing is bound to have lots and lots of entries, I don't really care nor do I expect to win anything... But there is a daily leader board that doesn't affect the drawing, just shows who's kicking butt. Yeah, whatever...
Oh, who am I kidding?! Game on, B*tches!!
