    I'm in!

    CrossFit 3x a week for me.

    (+ green smoothies, but I'm not including them in my goals because I'm still experimenting with them.)

    Great to hear from ye, everyone.

    Well, if they want to gain weight (mostly in the form of fat), this could actually be a viable exercise plan!

    But seriously: a common sense addendum to the rules which shouldn't need to be stated but will anyway because ye're a sarcastic goof...

    2. Share your exercise goals with us before the contest begins.
    • Have a goal(s) that is both reasonable and challenging to you on some level.

    How do you win? By working out every day? Everyone's goals will be different.
    ...I have no idea what colour yours will turn. I'm guessing straight green, since what colour a username is most likely is a specific setting that doesn't overlap with but would instead cancel out automated processes that may be present when one becomes a moderator/admin?

    You win by consistently pursuing your goal (whatever that may be) till the end, and whether or not ye are the only person will simply affect the distribution/type of prize. Choosing a particular type of goal is up to you, but as this contest revolves around duration of time, that may help decide what exactly your target is for the end of this six months.

    I'd like to get back up to where I used to be, and do 75 push-ups at a time. I also used to do it twice a day, 5 times a week, so I did that 10 times a week. With work any everything, I doubt I will get back to that, but getting up to 5 times a week would be nice.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Yeah... me too.
    I haven't exercised at all since January... mostly because I always have to vacuum the living room floor before I do it.

    Umm... I'm going to start at once a week for the first 4 weeks.
    Then I will re-evaluate as to whether I think I can do twice a week.
    I can't make more of a commitment right now. My life is in shambles and I am barely living one hour at a time.
    I guess I will say Saturday. I have such a hard time exercising on days that I work.

    For the record, I weigh 159.5 and I am 5' 1".
    My goal is 135.

    I'm definitely doing this, and it's going to be interesting to see what it's like on the other side of the contest. I'll come up with my goals before the contest begins. Gotta deal with the hurricane first.

    Awesome that you were able to get the green user names, though! That's going to be a great addition.

    I'll PM you things that came up when I was doing this that you may wish to address now, but a couple of quick thoughts:

    1. For people vying or the cash money prize, the rules are great. If you use your 10 cheat days, you lose the prize.
    2. I suggest that there should be a "participation" option for people that A) want to join late or B) can't stick with the stricter schedule, but find the thread to be motivating. Like, keep the green user names for all participants (say, someone that posts once a week with a 1 week grace period), but keep a separate list for people who are still vying for the prize. Disqualifying for the prize doesn't mean you can't participate.

    To 1.: Yes, that is how it will work.

    To 2.: That was the original intent, and I didn't specify quite enough in the OP. I will update it now. Thank you.

    Ok I think I'd like to do it now with Udog's suggestions. My goals:
    • Work out my core (back, abs, sides) at least 3x per week.
    • No white bread/pasta/rice/carbs for meals or snacks. One small treat (sweet or savory) after dinner.
    • Continue with other exercises as normal - hiking/climbing, biking, running, stairs, etc.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    I'm so excited. I made an account on sparkpeople. I've set up strength and cardio programs, goal of at least 1 hour exercise per day, 5 days a week. I want to lose 45 lbs.
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    @Zoom, what will you do if more than one person makes it to the end?

    Okay everyone, I'm going to THROW DOWN THE GAUNTLET. It's so serious that the seriousness can only be conveyed in ALL CAPS. That's SERIOUS. Seriously.

    I'm going to take before pictures.
    At the end of six months, I'm going to take after pictures.

    I will post these before and after pictures in the lounge no matter what. Even if I gain 5 pounds, I will be obligated to post the before and after pictures. Every time I feel like slacking too much, I will remember this challenge and use it to stay on track.

    Is there anyone else that is a bad enough dude to save the president join me?
