Hi there!  Welcome to fangirl_shapeup!

Feel free to create a post introducing yourself.  Posting is not moderated. And you can choose whether or not to lock your posts. I have now set the default to locked posts.

And feel free to post anything you'd like when it comes to eating healthier, exercising, and living a healthy lifestyle.  The only rules are: 1) be kind to one another and don't flame or troll and 2) keep it healthy.  Hope that's not too vague.  Use your common sense.

And if anyone has any awesome fandom-related icons of characters you love working out, let me know!

ETA: And yes, I'll get to work on making this layout prettier.  Anyone want to make a pretty banner for us?

Awesomesauce! I'll be doing an intro tomorrow. :) And if I end up not going to work tomorrow (because of the damn back), I'm sure I can hook the community up with a banner, too.

Do you want it to be non-fandomy? Or can I totally put Mary on there? LOL Either way, I think I can work something out.

Oh, your poor back! I really feel for you!

We can totally have a fandomy banner, but can it be multi-fandom? Most of the people here are XF and/or BSG fans. YES, WE NEED MARY!!!

OMG, thank you!

It's faily faily faily. :(

Ah hells yeah! I'll slam Gilly on there, too! Two inspirational women for us! :D

Back is frakking KILLING ME again. :(

Hence why I just told truemyth she's more than welcome to do the banner if she's still up for it. LOL If she turns out to be busy for the rest of the week, I can most definitely come back to this banner project later on when my back is treating me better!

But yes. WE NEED MARY. Because, y'know. She's made me awesome. (And is hot.) LOL

Oh, you and your poor back! *sadface*

That's totally cool. I hope your back gets better and soon. We need you healthy for this weekend. OMYGOD, BSG ENDS THIS WEEKEND!

1. WHAT are you doing up at this hour?? LOL

2. My back is pissing me off. It's sunny and lovely outside, and I want to be out walking, but I walk like a frakkin' 100-year old at the moment. (Then again, if I could be up and running around, I'd be at work, and wouldn't be out in the sun anyway. LOL)

3. I hope so, too, because a) I need to be back at work on Wednesday LOL, b) IT'S BSG THIS WEEKEND *sobs*, and c) Katie is coming here and we're DOING things to help deaden the pain that is the end (IT WILL NEVER END) of BSG!


I was thinking it would be neat to have an animated banner that shifts between lots of awesome chicks working out... Do you know how to make that? We could add to such a banner as people find pictures, and I'd be happy to do some research for it. :D

I'm not sure I've ever seen an animated banner in LJ. Do you have any examples?

It's just a matter of making a gif... the trick is to make it small enough that it doesn't take too long to load for people or slow down their computer (the animation part should be small and maybe black and white).

My old banner was animated:

Now, my friend strippedpink has a banner that refreshes with different images... I have no idea how she does that. Her kungfu is better than mine.

I have no idea how she does that. Her kungfu is better than mine.

Oh, that is REALLY cool, though - ask her!

Very cool! I think an animated banner would be awesome as long as it's not too busy and eye-jarring. I say go for it and THANKS!

Hi! This is a GREAT IDEA!

I'd be happy to play with banners this evening if you have some caps for ideas. Dude... why don't we have many hot icons of Scully exercising, huh?

AHA!!! HERE IT IS! *drools*


Dude, I was so going to make an icon of one of these pics. I think I still will.

WIN! I'll get to work as soon as I've settled in back here in Fairfield.

Any idea where I can find good BSG screencaps? I'm thinking Starbuck or Laura running... Lee helping Dee... Starbuck and Lee boxing? Even pyramid fun.

I'm also going to do some stuff with Aeryn from Farscape, but I know where to look for those caps because I'm more familiar with that show.

Oh, and I really want to figure out how to rip my La Femme Nikita DVDs because there is an AWESOME and hot workout montage at the begining of an episode.

I wasn't exactly sure what kind of slogans to use...

Actually, tell ya what - GO FOR IT! :D

My back is completely out at the moment, and I thought I'd be up for photoshopping today, but I'm really not. I instead foresee a lot of lying flat on the floor with my legs up on the couch.

So yeah, if you're still up for it, go for it! Can't wait to see what you come up with. :)

Angie already volunteered for the banner, but I'd love to have an icon of Scully exercising. There IS that pic of GA lifting weights. OH CRAP, WHY CAN'T I FIND IT???? GAH!


Ah, now I noticed this post that you want one as well - maybe we can have a community-wide one we can share? (I can't make icons for shit so I'd rather someone with talent do it *g*(.

YES! All icons for the sharing!

Icon makers, we are calling you! :)

dashakay, you are probably a genius. Also, as a general request, I NEED A LEE ADAMA FITNESS ICON LIKE WO.

Pwease? *makes blinky puppy eyes*

Give me screencaps/pictures/text requests and I'll do my best.
