I don’t mean to sound flip, but seriously, what do you make of the aisle where the soda starts at one end and is lined up for as long as the eye can see. Soda dominates advertising and marketing campaigns on our TV, our radio and in our print media. In fact, Coca-Cola slogans have been encouraging us to drink the stuff since 1900 with “Deliciously refreshing: for headache and exhaustion, drink Coca-Cola” to today’s slogan “Life Tastes Good.” Yes, life does taste good but what does that have to do with this noxious beverage linked directly to such epidemic health concerns as world-wide obesity and heart disease?
As April neared I was barraged with challenges: from the Photo of the Day, to The Magic‘s 28 day program, to Script Frenzy. Being prone to the 3 C’s (Competitive, Creative, and apparently Cranky when inactive) I thought, not only would I attempt all three of those challenges, but I would create yet another for myself. This one I hope you will all consider joining with me. It’s simple. Walk for 30 minutes every day. Start today. If you miss a day, make it up by adding time on another day, but try, try with all the might of a serious challenge, to walk each day.
