Fitness and/or healh thread?

Hi!
I'm ready to start my new fitness plan, so thought if anyone else wanted to jump on, that might be fun. I know I could go over to the other board, but I like it here. If people are up for it I'll just post once a week or so and we can update motivated. You can do exercise or healthy eating or diet or what have youall are welcome!

Let me know if you're in and I'll get it going. If no one is interested, I'll just wonder over to the HF board.

"Things separate from their stories have no meaning. They are only shapes. Of a certain size and color. A certain weight. When their meaning has become lost to us they no longer have even a name. The story on the other hand can never be lost from its place in the world for it is that place.” ― Cormac McCarthy, The Crossing
