Happy Monday to you and you and you.
Alright, I found a place where we can stay up-to-date/share/inspire/etc in regards to our fitness goals. Thanks for some really great website suggestions last week – I decided to start our online fitness group at Fitocracy. It has a really streamlined, clean interface (which I love), a good app, a great social aspect, but most importantly, it’s simple. Some of the websites I checked out were way too robust for me, and I was totally drowning in the options.
I’ve set up a private group which can only be accessed by invite. If you want to join, click here and set up your account/username. (It’s free.) I should be able to see that you came from this website, so once you’re set up, I’ll send an invite to join the group. Cool? Cool. It’s called Fit Bits. (cue trumpet fanfare)
From what I’ve seen so far, Fitocracy a really cool website – you can totally keep track of all of your workouts (utilizing points), browse people’s specific workouts for inspiration, and compete in online challenges. Probably lots more, but I’m just getting the hang of it. Oh, my username is whoorl. Hope to see you all there!

I think this is such a fun idea and a great way to keep up the motivation and inspiration! I’m going to go join now.

I’m so confused! why oh why am I so confused?? I think I signed up, but who knows. I do know, however, that I will be running tomorrow with or without a fit account. I so want to be in your group, so hopefully it works :)

Ooh, I’ve been on Fitocracy for ages! Or, you know, since early September of last year. I’m (wait for it…) “kerrianne.”
The site actually used to be even better! than it is now, mostly because there was more emphasis on fitness and far less people posting back shots and/or shots of very exposed body parts I’d rather not see, no matter how “fit” they might be, thank you very much (see also: groups called “Flirtocrats”). (The mobile app is admittedly pretty sweet, and very user-friendly.)
But dude, a chance to play along and prop the shit out of your workouts on a daily basis (I’m so eloquent today)? I’m so in.

AWESOME! So glad you are in. Yes, I noticed the lovely photos of which you speak, hence putting the private group together. Let’s all just stay in our little clothed bubble!

HA! I just joined at the site followed some people FOR ME. And, of course, few of them are wearing much clothing.
I just want to tell them to put ALL THAT away. :)
