So, in the spirit of friendly competition, I'd like to invite you all to join Fitocracy. Fitocracy is a fitness website where you log your workouts and receive points for what you do. More strenuous exercise equals more points. Meeting certain point levels allows you to level up. Oh, and there are "quests" that you can complete for bonus points! Anyway, the best part is that you can add friends and compete for the highest points.

I started logging my exercise on Fitocracy a couple of weeks ago and I'm on level 4 right now. I'd really like to have some people to compete against to motivate me to work out more! We could even make a group for us all to join so that we can easily view the leaderboard to see who has the most points at any given time. Any interest?

(By the way, is anyone already on Fitocracy? I can't seem to find an easy way to search for friends if I don't already know their usernames.)

I'm there too. And I'm going to make a concerted effort to actually post my workouts.

"Snugly fitting shorts help wearers drop jeans sizes by intensifying body heat to increase perspiration"


If you want to use temperature difference to lose weight, you're better off taking ice cold showers. Your body then has to burn more calories to maintain/regain normal body temps. For best results, apply cold to chest, shoulders, neck. No scientific human trials on this yet that I've heard of, but lots of anecdotal evidence. Science!

Also check out "4 Hour Body" for more info on that and other "hacking" your way to fitness.

I wish hot showers counted as exercise. I'm a pro at staying in the shower for a really long time.

Also, I believe I made the Big Freakin' Fitness group private now, so let me know if you aren't in yet and you can't find it!
