LAS VEGAS — Just as those New Year’s resolutions are starting to wane, the Southern Nevada Health District is launching its annual 10-in-10 Challenge, the online program that helps participants both cut and burn more calories. The free program kicks off Monday, Feb. 22 and participants can sign up on the Get Healthy Clark County website, Get Healthy Clark County 10-in-10 Challenge. The program is also available in Spanish on www.VivaSaludable.org. For more information, log on to www.GetHealthyClarkCounty.org, www.VivaSaludable.org or contact the Office of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, (702) 759-1270.
Participants sign up online for the free program. Each week, they will receive two emails with tips and suggestions about how to swap foods they eat regularly with healthier, less calorie dense choices as well as ways to increase their physical activity. Participants can track their progress online and set short- and long-term goals. In addition, they can post quotes or photos to help them stay motivated and achieve their goals. Participants can also share their ideas and thoughts or ask questions via the Get Healthy blog on the website.
The 10-in-10 Challenge takes a realistic approach and provides participants with small changes that can be incorporated into their daily routines after the 10-week program concludes and long after most New Year’s resolutions have been broken.
In addition to the 10-in-10 Challenge, Get Healthy Clark County online programs include the Nutrition Challenge, which encourages participants to eat more fruits and vegetables. The Walk Around Nevada and the Neon to Nature programs help participants increase and track their physical activity. Walk Around Nevada and Neon to Nature each have apps that can be downloaded via the Apple Store for iOS devices: https://appsto.re/us/sTYf3.i or from Google Play for Android: http://bit.ly/1zirwNo.
