Finished my bit for the January '05 newsletter today and sent it on to Snakemoon. We'll publish in the next few days.
Among other things, we've announced that Full Circle is now listed as Civic Group in the American On The Move Program. This program is free and available to all. You can tour the website and take a tour before you decide if you want to join.
The America On The Move Program is designed to help you develop a healthier, more energetic lifestyle by making 2 minor changes: moving 2000 more steps and eating 100 fewer calories each day. You can log your activity (via steps or by noting exercise, like gardening or walking the dog), track your progress, learn from news and informative articles, and find healthy recipes.
This website also lets you virtually “walk” a famous American trail using a pedometer to count your daily steps along the route. I am currently walking the Appalachian Trial and friend of mine is traveling in the shoes of Lewis and Clark. It’s fun and it’s easy to do, especially if you have a friend or a partner doing it, too.
Once you are a member you can use the Pace Setters page to see how others at Full Circle are doing. We hope that this will further inspired you to get on the move. You can also use the Match Mates page to email friends with encouragement and arrange Walking Clubs in your area.
The Full Circle Registration Code is: RFU18067

You can use your real name or a Craft name if you prefer and you do not have to give out your phone number or address. Also, you do not have to identify as a Pagan to join this group. We’ve signed on as a Civic Group and all are welcome.
We also recommend that our members visit Dr. Weil’s website for information on healthy eating, vitamins, alternative health care information and inspiration. Becoming conscious of what we eat and how it affects our health and our mood is half the battle, and we think that this site can help. I get the daily newsletter and I’ve found that it helps me keep motivated to eat right and reduce my level of daily stress
