New Get Fit Club Thread

Hey everybody! I thought that since we've moved away from the medal system, it would be nice to get a fresh start. We have a new logo, and more relaxed rules, so here is a new thread to discuss what we're doing.

To get your logo for use in your signature, please go here:

http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o99/shemwelljr/GFCGreenBlackLargeLetters100.jpg

Once you use that url in your browser, you will see our new logo. You can either right click the logo and save it to your computer, and then upload it here to your sig, or you can right click and copy the url at the top of the page and use that by putting it in rather than uploading your saved picture. Or, you can just highlight and copy the red url above and put it in your sig, which is even easier. It is up to you which way you want to use it.

Now that you have your new sig, let's go to the new rules:

1. We will post results every Friday, like always. I will start a new thread each and every Friday, usually Thursday night just so I don't forget. I'm an ADDer, after all . Please let us know what you did this week to improve your life by exercising. The purpose of this group is to help you IMPROVE your life with exercise above and beyond what you ordinarily do. You aren't improving if you just do your ordinary daily activities, so we encourage you to reach out and do something above and beyond. Let us know what you did, which will encourage us to do more too.

2. Use this thread to let us all know what you're doing throughout the week, to ask questions, get help, etc. Keep in touch with everyone here, introduce yourself if you're new, and welcome others.

Pretty simple, eh?

We're all in this together. We've all struggled at times, we've all experienced some level of success, no matter where we are or what we're doing, we all have one thing in common, and that is our ADD. Exercise can help, and we want to try and help reach out to others so that they too might gain the additional boost that exercise can give.

If you see a newbie, welcome them. If you notice someone missing, send them a pm and encourage them to come back. Maybe they just need a little push, or just forgot to come here and report what they've been up to.

Welcome to the ADD Forums Get Fit Club!

Mike

Re: New Get Fit Club Thread

Nice! It was 0 degrees this morning and is supposed to be as low tonight. Needless to say, I didn't get out. Next week should be better.

It's really nice to have a shiny new thread! Thanks!!!

Re: New Get Fit Club Thread

Glad to everyone migrating over, and I'm glad you all seem to like the logo!

Welcome to the group Stef!

Dorie, we've been having those zero degree days too. Not fun. Our poor work truck with 206,000 miles on it kind of looks at us like, you have GOT to be kidding, when we start it in the morning, lol. The cold is hard on everything.

I like the new medal-less format because it gives me less keeping track to do. However, I also like it because in the past, I would keep up with people and if someone stopped showing up, I would contact them via pm to let them know we missed them and hoped to see them back. It helped a lot of people along, just to know somebody cared. With everything going on, and falling behind on keeping track of things, it was hard to do that anymore. So, not only myself, but any one of you, can reach out to people that have quit showing up and see if you can help them to get going again. Just a quick note to tell them we've missed them down in the Get Fit Club is sometimes all it takes.

So, when I get a bit of time, I'm going to go through the old Welcome thread and see who we are missing. Maybe we can get some to come back with the new format. There is strength in numbers, and I like seeing a big group playing along. It is encouraging.

Glad to see all of you over here so far!

Mike

Re: New Get Fit Club Thread

Seems like we are going to actually have a day above 55 degree here. I am going to make the most of it! Maybe even go for a long walk with the kids in the wagon.

Re: New Get Fit Club Thread

I like the new logo thingy too, Mike, especially since it will absolve you of the extra work. :-)

20 ~ a wagon walk with the kids sounds like fun! Weather-wise here, we are pushing close to 80 degrees, I'll push some warm air your way!

Thanks Frazz! Spring is around the corner and then this thread should take off. Nice weather makes you want to get outside and move!

Re: New Get Fit Club Thread

I have a nifty little rebounder I got from the infomercial, and I use it all the time for the cardio workout when it's too hot here to do it outside. I like it alot, it's really easy on the joints, and I can dance on it and watch TV at the same time with music in the background.

Yes, if you go to the Exercise Forum, and click on it, it (the one for Jan 16) is stickied. Grafter puts them up each week at the top. I put a link to it in the old GFC thread, along with a link to this new thread. It is up and ready for your results.

Re: New Get Fit Club Thread

Frazz, what is a rebounder? Sorry for my ignorance. Is it like a trampoline? Sounds great for indoor exercising.

Yesterday I walked for about an hour and today it is back on the wii for some strength exercises.
