"Get your Buns in Gear" Initiative and Server
I must start off by thanking @ablaze for planting the seed that grew this idea for starters. I am starting a server for Scorumites who want to keep each other motivated and find workout partners and stay on track. A lot of us made the Resolution to get fitter and stay focused on fitness and our sports lives. After reading his post and chatting in the comments it made a energy saving light bulb go off in my head. Here is his post that set the gear in motion of making this a "thing". https://scorum.com/en-us/fitness/@ablaze/join-me-in-regaining-my-fitness Part of my rather long list of resolutions was to declutter and try to avoid things that no longer served me but instead were wasting valuable time and energy. The problem is that once you stop really being invested in your own physical well-being, it can be hard to jump right back on that wagon. I am sitting here typing and staring at a brand new treadmill that is not being used. In the dining room is an antique wooden chest where I store a ton of my equipment. Having it just sit there is not serving me, perhaps I need others to help motivate and guide me and perhaps in turn, I can return the favor. Like most of you, we are juggling so many things and getting so bombarded with all the tasks we have to complete that we lose sight of what's important. Staring at a screen all day sitting around and talking of athletics isn't doing my stress level any favors. Perhaps some of you can relate. One issue can be isolation that we find by being behind screens and not connecting at levels that we could be.Confessing you need actual friends online to help get your "buns in gear" can be a bit of a vulnerable feeling. I confess it though that I need a nice and solid group of people who are perhaps needing the same type of connections I do. My friends are all running around like I am so I stopped bothering trying to "do lunches". Now through Scorum I am meeting like minds! Hurrah!!!This Discord Server is open to those who want to focus on finding workout partners and listing routines and then helping one another reach our goals. If people can't follow the rules they will be kicked which also is a sport if you do it right! ;) https://discord.gg/FmJ9CxbThe invite link will expire in one week. After that I will either refresh the link somewhere or you can express interest in the comments section. Feel free to find me on Discord and send a friend request to join as well. My Discord is battleaxe#1003... Hoping some will join in where you can come to chat and meet up and see where we can take this. Ablaze and I already pretty much agreed to bust each others chops on sticking to our routines and doing updates so I am inviting whoever is interested to join. This is not for Politics or Post Promotion but for a Scorumite Team who can help each other out. :)
Its ok to have fun while working out......
Working out should not be all boring and serious. It is ok to have fun while doing, at least in order to catch your breath after some rigorous routine. Dancing during or after working out does it for me. Although i am not a very good stepper but i try to have fun with my moves regardless. I am an extremely shy person when i am in front of the camera, especially when i am not delivering a lecture or a speech. But i can proudly say that my dance moves have improved over the years because i kept at it most times during or after my work out sessions.The video below is one of my funny moments after a long workout session. The song i was dancing to is a song by TUFACE IDIBIA a.k.a TUBABA Nigerian, one of the greatest musician to ever come out of the continent of Africa. He featured another fast rising talent from Nigeria, PERUZI. The title of the son is called "Amaka". The song was basically talking about how he, TUBABA and PERUZI were waiting for Amaka in their house but got disappointed when she didn't show up.. Amaka is a popular name amongst the Igbo tribe of the Eastern part of Nigeria.I decided to dance to this song in my SCORUM shirt because Amaka is one of the most played songs on radio and Tvs across the continent Africa presently. Moreover i am a big fan of TUFACE IDIBIA. His talent, voice, craft, music and longevity can not be matched by any other artist in this present generation, perhaps in the past too and the nearest future. Another important thing about this video apart from my SCORUM shirt and TUFACE IDIBIA is the kind of dance i was doing. Its the presently the most popular dance step in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. It is called "SHAKU SHAKU". Another dance that is making waves here in Africa is the South African "GWARA GWARA".
