    Default 2011 TypeC Exercise Challenge & Soirée

    Greetings, all!

    For those new to this, the idea of this thread is to offer encouragement and incentive to exercise. There is a contest portion that starts on Wednesady, Aug 31st, and will go until only one person remains or we make it 6 months.

    Any user participating in the exercise challenge portion will get to have green usernames for the duration of their involvement, which shall change back to the normal color if the participant falls out of or leaves the contest for any reason.

    You don't have to partake of the contest portion - feel free to join in just for fun at any time!

    Finally, the rules. The spirit of the law is preferred vs. the letter, but we do need something.

    Rules for the 6 Month/Last Man Standing Contest
    1. The contest runs 8/31/11 to 2/29/12, or until there is only 1 remaining participant.

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

    3. Report your exercising one of two ways:
    • At the end of the week, post what you did for the week. Each week begins on Monday, so please submit by Wednesday at the latest.
    • After exercising, make a quick post stating what you did. For example: "Hey, I just used the treadmill for 30 minutes."

    4. As mentioned previously, there will be a prize, or prizes, but not one worth cheating for*. Aside from the obvious bonus of those involved gaining the love adoration bacon of the entire forum.

    5. There will be allowance for vacations, injuries, etc, where exercise is not possible. Prior notification for vacations and notification of injuries and sickness, with a speedy return to the program will be fine.

    6. Each person will have 13 cheat days. You lose a cheat based on the number of days you are short of your weekly goals. Example: if your goal is 4 days of cardio per week, and you only exercise twice, you lose 2 cheat days. If a cheat day is used, please make a note of it in the thread.

    7. Changing exercise goals is allowed, assuming it consists of exercise. Just post the modifications here.

    Participation Option: This is for those who wish to join late or are unable to stick with the stricter schedule but find the thread to be motivating. All who take part in this thread (contestants or not) will have green usernames, it is simply a distinction of whether one is a member of the competition or not. Disqualifying oneself for the prize doesn't mean you can't participate. Please do make a specific note when you post your goals if ye do not wish to be a part of the competition.

    Additional information in regards to healthy foodstuffs and any discussions regarding such can be found in the 2011 Exercise Challenge: Healthy Eating & Recipes =D thread.
    Please feel free to offer suggestions, questions, or comments.

    Also, please note that this OP will be modified if/when needed updates and alterations become apparent.

    *The prize will most likely involve an online gift card to one's site of choice (to avoid any conflicts of privacy regarding users' personal information) should there be a singular winner, and something slightly different if there are multiple winners. Bacon? Cake.

    I'm in, of course.. lemme think for a bit to get some very specific goals written up. What are you going to do with the next jackass that posts that their workout will consist of standing up from their chair once a week?

    I want to participate. This is the heaviest I've ever been and I don't exercise at all right now, soooo anything would be an improvement on that. I'll have to start out slow in the beginning, but I'll think of something I can do.
    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.

    How do you win? By working out every day? Everyone's goals will be different.

    Well you already know I'm ridiculously in .
    I'm thinking.. Cardio/Zumba 4x per week. Yoga/Pilates 1x per week. At least 70 pushups per week.

    Need to gauge if I'll be able to tack on anything else after my Fall semester starts up. Hope-hope.

    I'm in. I just need to determine my goals first. Now that this is a competition, I don't think I can back down.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?
