DaddyPlace DOODS Getting Fit Group!
« on: October 16, 2008, 12:35:16 PM »
Welcome to our new Getting Fit Group. I am really looking forward to this. This thread will be our general Getting Fit Group thread to welcome new group members, have the rules for review, ask questions and give support.

DaddyPlace DOODS Get Fit Rules

1. A check in must be posted each Friday in a separate thread (The first person to post starts the thread) z_randy or I will sticky this at the top when we can.

Friday End of the Week Check In Thread (If there is not a new thread on Friday for the week please start one) will include:


Workout Days (Mandatory for Medal): If you workout a day during the week Saturday-Friday post it. Workouts will include but are not limited to Walking, Running, Gym, Treadmill, Swimming, Weights, Martial Arts, etc. Please list the days that you exercised above and beyond what you normally would. Regular work that you do around the house, or work that you do secularly, shouldn't count (unless it is something that you normally do not do). We are looking to encourage one another to work out more than we normally would, after all, it is our current situation that is a result of the work we currently do, so we all need some extra attention to exercise.

Weight Lost (Not Required for Medal): If you lost weight during the week Saturday-Friday post it. We don't need to know your current or starting weight (unless you want to share), just post a + or - and number of pounds gained or lost. If you stayed the same, just put a zero.

Distance (Not Required for Medal): Run, Swim, Walk, bike, or any other mode that has a measurable distance during the week Saturday-Friday. Post it.

A typical post on Friday might look like this:

RamblinDad
-1 lbs for the week
Worked out: M,Th, F, Su
Walked 12 miles on treadmill

See, it doesn't have to be anything complicated. You can abbreviate as you wish, and you're welcome to tell the story of your week as well in your post. Let us know what you had to overcome, what you liked, something that worked for you, or whatever you like.

2. Everyone starts with a black medal in their signature for being part of this group. You stay in this group, and advance in medals, not with weight loss, but with exercise. We want to know that you are working to get fit. Of course, losing weight should come with it, but even those that are their ideal weight can benefit from exercise. We don't want to discourage anyone from joining that wants to join just because they don't need to lose weight. Some of us do, some don't, but we all need exercise regardless.

So, if you fail to report on Friday or to exercise for 2 consecutive weeks you are still welcome to work with us, but your medal will go back to the black medal. If you can't post on Friday because you are out of town, or just forget, just post sometime during the week and I'll look for it, but try to post on Fridays to make it easier on me to keep track. We hope to encourage one another to be persistent, even if just one day a week, and to report so as to encourage others.

Medals, based on you reporting exercise on Fridays, will go as follows (Copy and Paste the associated codes into your signature):
First 2 weeks = Black

Code: [Select]

We’ll work on something really special for a year, but let's start here to kick things off.

The code also has a link to this thread to encourage others to come see what we're doing and maybe they will join in too.

Join other DP Dads in getting fit!

3. This isn't a rule, but encourage others that you may know to participate. A person can join at any time they like. A person is also welcome to leave at anytime they like, and will go back to a black medal if they decide to join in again. Together we can help others to make an improvement in their health, both physically and mentally.

You are more than welcom! Just copy and paste the code above in your sig. This will give you the black medal. At the end of the week a new check in thread will be posted, where only the weeks check ins will be. Do it to it for two weeks with check ins and I or Randy will PM a new code for the next medal.

If you want, you can post here each day you work out. This is the general thread for that too.

I just added another 200 characters to the max allowed in a signature.  That should get it done for you.

Perfect.  About exercise not necessarily losing weight (for me it's both).  About getting in shape mainly.  Welcome aboard!  Don't forget to add your medal
