90 Day Health and Fitness Challenge

I am so into my work's 90 day staff incentive health and fitness challenge! It's a point challenge with raffle tickets given at every 100 points you earn and a grand prize dinner if you get 200 points per month for 3 months. We have become pretty competitive at work. We can get points if we walk 10,000 steps per day (recommended for beginning health benefits from walking) attending classes, tracking our calories and bringing in a vegetable tray (without dip). I am only doing the pedometer challenge right now but I also plan to attend some classes. I really want to win the raffle prizes. We have over twenty staff members participating and I think I'm trailing in 4th place. 

I never knew it would be so hard to get in my 10,000 steps a day. On days that I walk to work, walk home for lunch and talk the dog out for leisurely walks 10,000 steps is easy. Days that I drive to work and have a lot of meetings 10,000 it a large stretch, I have done 10,000+ each day but sometimes I'm walking around the house before going to bed. 

Does your job do any health challenge? Have you ever tracked your daily steps?
