So when I read this Penny Arcade Comic regarding Fitocracy, of course I found it funny, but I was clueless regarding the reference.
Slideyfoot then offered an invite to Fitocracy on Facebook, for anyone that was interested in that sort of thing. I expressed my interest, by this point forgetting about the Penny Arcade reference, and he was kind enough to oblige.
It’s an interesting concept: to track your fitness like a video game, including achievements to unlock, points to earn through difference activities and of course challenges to accept. And conquer.
I can see this much like how I play video games: I’ll end up going out of my way to earn achievements- for example there are achievements to unlock for doing barbell presses-something I have no desire to do, but if I want to unlock that achievement…Probably not. Nevermind.
What I am going to do however is at least try for the entire month of November to keep up with this. I am usually pretty terrible at keeping track of anything I do, eat, drink, etc. I want to give this site a fair shot, so I am going to work on keeping it updated for the entire month of November.
Let the physical challenge begin! 😉
