Default Office 2010 32 bit upgrade to 64 bit

Is there a way, or will there be a way to upgrade the 32 bit Office 2010 to
64 bit?

I would just uninstall, but do not want to go through everything and risk
losing my Outlook Data...

You need a fresh and clean install when going to 64 bit. I suggest that you save all
your data and files you have on Office and then install the 64 bit

Why would you think that any uninstall will remove data?
Do you in any case, not backup data?

There is no upgrade path from 32 to 64bit. There is no issue (no
data/settings loss) in uninstalling a 32bit version of Office and installing
Office 2010 64-bit. As always, everyone's mileage may vary based on 3rd
party addins and tools installed that integrate with Microsoft Office.

PS - Microsoft does recommend staying with the 32bit version of Office 2010
due to 3rd party addins and tools.
