Registration is now open for the 2012 Live Healthy Nebraska 100-Day Challenge, a wellness challenge beginning January 23, 2012.  The program offers friendly team competition in weight loss and physical activity minutes.

Throughout the 100 days, teams of 2-10 people receive weekly motivational tips to guide them toward healthier nutrition and exercise habits.  The participants periodically log their progress and can check their results on a leaderboard.  The leaderboard is sortable by state, ZIP code, company and department to encourage local challenges.

Upon enrollment in the program, each participant receives a training T-shirt, an annual subscription to a healthy lifestyle magazine and access to daily nutrition and workout planners.  The cost is $20 per person, but participants can receive $5 off with a coupon available at Hy-Vee stores or online at  The Nebraska Sports Council also offers webinars for company or community coordinators.

Those interested can email for a webinar schedule. For more information about Living Healthy Nebraska, please visit them online at
