DU Group: Exercise and Fitness...any takers?
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 09:49 AM by dolo amber
Interested parties post here, please. We need at least 10 w/donor stars, and we need a mission statement. Which someone other than me should write. :D

2. Me Too! I made a lot of progress in 2004; now I feel like a big slug
and it is making me nervous for 2005.

3. Democrats don't exercise!
Alright, that's not true... but Michael Moore probably doesn't, and neither should you!! :-)

Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 09:05 AM by dolo amber
on the Critics Choice Awards?? :wow:

I daresay Mr. Moore has been ambushed by the Queer Eye fellas...he looked SMASHING. Slim, hair styled, nice suit...amazing. ;)

8. But if I exercise, then I'll lose my beer belly.
What else will I be able to rest my beer upon?

16. Sounds good
It'd probably be really busy this time of year. Everyone is on the resolution kick.

I've been dieting and exercising for around 3 weeks now.

22. Dunno, Terry....
I guess so long as it doesn't venture too far into woo-woo land that'd be ok. ;)

As soon as someone steps up and volunteers to write a mission statement, all that sorta thing can be discussed. (HINT HINT, people... :D)

25. Thanks, d.
I, too, don't want the forum to go off into woo-woo land. But I think we might want to make sure nutrition is a part of it. Working out and eating McDonald's at the same time is rather counter-productive (I've done the workout and beer and pizza thing in the past. :-)

20. I am interested. Sign me up.
I can't write the mission statement, knowing little about exercise & fitness. But I hope to learn. That's why I want to join. Thanks, Dolo.

21. i'm in
my misery could use some company. i have been on again off again with yoga, and other stuff for most of my adult life. i am 50, and in crappy health, and need to get it together.
i let my y membership lapse this summer, and bought a gazelle. i have used it twice. i had been doing pretty well at the y, then i caught west nile virus. i have had problems ever since.
my son is after me to get him some weights. he could really use it, too.

so, we could have a daily workout log, and one for aches and pains.

24. Heh
I'd say the 'aches and pains' log could be a monster. :D

Ok, so with you on board, we have 10 donor stars...now all we need is a Mission Statement. Please, guys...you do not want the embarrasment of having me write it. ;)

26. MISSION STATEMENT TIME
Ok, I guess the point of the group is for support, advice and general bellyaching regarding trying to get into shape. Nutrition and dieting...equipment, what workout works for you...that sorta thing. Please feel free to add your ideas/concerns.

I have no idea how to write a proper mission statement, so as soon as that's handled we'll PM the Admins and see if we're a go. :hi:

27. Yes!
I'd join an Exercise and Fitness forum here at DU.

Just last night I went looking for one in the many, many forums (fora?) that DU has and was surprised there was none.

30. How about this for a mission statement?
The Exercise and Fitness Group exists as a place for people to discuss exercise, fitness and nutrition. Support and advice from those who are experts, novices or who are interested in beginning an exercise program.

35. I think that's it.
I went to the DU groups area and read what Skinner mentioned about asking for a group...and it didn't seem to be anything more than what I wrote. I don't think you have to go into flights of rhetorical fancy or anything. :-)

Thanks, D. :-)
