Video, Graphic & Book. // Jen J.

Just a little post dedicated to media today. 

I can not tell you broads it enough, I loved all the introduction videos that were posted within the group recently.  It was so awesome for the posts to have more dimension to them and hear all the accents.  I made a point to watch every video I came across.  In doing so, I came across this gem, made by Fit Camper, Sania C.  As soon, as I watched it, I called my boyfriend over and said you gotta check this shit out.  He was impressed too.  I asked for Sania's permission to share it here, because her effort and skill level warrants being seen.  So watch it, and smile, you are surrounded by some talented broads in that there Fit Camp of yours.


On the topic of talented broads, another Fit Camper, Erica H., created this little graphic for our push to recruit Jillian Michaels to attend the Fit Camp retreat.  She volunteered immediately after I put out the call for someone artsy and I think this graphic is the perfect representation of what I was trying to accomplish.  If you are interested in more of her works, please check out her Facebook page.
If you have not signed our letter to Jillian please do it. NOW.  It is so easy.  Just click here.  I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Patrica R. for helping me fine tune the letter.  She is really good at that stuff but I guess she should be.  Her big girl job is as a literacy coach.  You can see her skillzzz for yourself at her blog, Legacy.

See I told you we had some talented ladies.  Thanks for pitching in for the greater good of the group. 

In other news.....we are going to test out a little book club action in the group.  You can join in on the literary fun by finding us under the events tab - January Book Club.  I selected three titles from everyone's suggestions and took a vote and this book won. 

As of this typing, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me had 70 votes.  The honorable mentions were Wild, by Cheryl Strayed, with 40 votes, and Made to Crave, by Lysa Terkeurst, with 21 votes.  There were enough positive comments and votes for Wild that I'd like to consider it if we decide to do this again.

I timed the book club experiment to start in January so that people could add the book to their Christmas lists.  I don't really know how to handle the discussion in the event because I don't want any spoilers.  Should I just let it be a free for all and if you don't want to risk being spoiled, stay out of the event?  Or possibly I could break the book up into increments - like by pages or chapters.  For example, by week two, we'd be free to discuss, say - chapters 1 - 7 and only those chapters.  And then we will increase it by a few chapters in week 3.  Please, please, chime in with suggestions. 


As always, thanks for reading.
P.S.  I can now be followed @fitnessunscrpited on the Instagram.  I did a little switch-a-roo from @passingleft after the Jillian push - which led people directly to Fitness Unscripted.  I just don't really want people from my personal/work life tracking my every wellness journey.  I want to be more raw and open about it.

  2. I think you should set up the book club with the latter...discussing ONLY certain chapters at a selected time. B/c everyone has different hm lives and may not b able to read everyday as someone else might b able too. But don't make the discussion time too long b/c if u want to join u nd to make the time to read it or risk the spoiler post when reading the comments. But just my opinion. Btw...Love the video by Sania C!

  3. I like the idea of discussing only certain chapters at a time. I am a fast reader if there is time for me to read. So that would help me not leak any important info :). Sania's video and Erica's logo rock!

  4. I just have to say Thank You Jen J for ALL you do here and on FB! I can only imagine the time it takes to moderate and keep up these pages. It means worlds to me that you do. Everyday I come here for my daily inspiration and am never disappointed. Love Sania C's video every time I watch it! And great logo by Erica H. Thanks again!

  5. I agree with the chapter or section discussions. That also might slow me down from staying up all night to finish it in one go.
    Love the video & the graphics. Talent ladies in our group!
