Hopefully you’re aware of the Million Pound Challenge, San Antonio’s collective community quest to shed 1 million pounds by early 2015. Every pound counts, so each area resident is encouraged to participate.
The challenge is actually part of a friendly competition between San Antonio and Houston to see which city will be the first to lose 1 million collective pounds. So far, San Antonio is in the lead.
Participating in the challenge is easy, thanks to a free iPhone app developed by Community First Health Plans. Download the app at the iPhone App Store or at www.fitcitysa.com/mpapp. An Android version is being developed; Natural Awakenings will help spread the word when it’s ready.
When you engage with the iPhone app, you qualify to win fun prizes designed to help you on your wellness journey. Prizes include MP3 players and fitness packs from the American Heart Association.
