2nd Exercise Contest

Once upon a time , there was a pig named Robert. In this particular story, Robert lived in the internet age. One day Robert heard that an AIO board was paying virtual money to those who would exercise during the summer. This made Robert very excited. However, Robert ended up doing so much exercise he wasn’t even fat enough to make bacon with. :(

Unlike Robert, we can exercise and be made better for it. Not only does it help us take care of the temple God gave us, it helps us feel better, reduces the risk of some cancers, controls weight, and sometimes is just plain fun.

Now we add another element to that mix, getting paid for exercising. There are all kinds of ways to exercise.

How Do I Join The Fun?
I'm glad you asked. For starters you can set a goal for yourself in the Exercise Goals thread. While this is optional, it does provide a bigger payout. If you set a goal for July, You can change it for August if you need to. Another way to get involved is to post how much you have exercised each week in the Exercise Logs thread. The only way to get credit for your week of exercise is to post how much exercise you did at the end of each week. If you would like to post what you did throughout the week, I do ask that you list all of it in one post at the end of the week by Saturday @ 11 PM CST. The weeks will be as follows:

  • July 2-9
  • July 10-16
  • July 17-23
  • July 24-30
  • July 31- Aug 6

  • Aug 7-13
  • Aug14-20
  • Aug 21-27
  • Aug 28-Sept 3


Where's The Money?
Now, here's where you really have some decisions to make. You can just exercise or you can try to reach a goal. Here's how it works
$0.25 For every minute of exercise without a set goal to work towards.
$0.50 For every minute of exercise towards a set goal, as long as you give an assessment of how you progressing towards said goal.

I don't suppose spending 6h a day operating a K&C rig counts...
