Some of us in the Arvada Game Group have accepted that gaming, while our favorite obsession hobby, does not do wonders for the waistline. We're therefore putting forth a challenge to ourselves and anyone else in the group who wants to join us. The overall goal is to promote better general health among the group so that we feel better, live longer and... the time we spend playing games is the best it can be.

To game with our group, go here for details/dates:
http://www.meetup.com/The-Denver-Boardgames-Meetup-Group/

Ideas for our challenge are posted below. Members of the group should feel free to post their ideas as well.

Pre-Game Day Walking Group

Starting with the March 4th Saturday Game Day (3/23/12), meet up for walking group at 9:45AM to walk for an hour before game day. A good chance to get some exercise in before you sit on your butt for the rest of the day and a good opportunity to socialize with fellow game group members. We'll return by 10:45AM in order to meet up with any early arrivals. (There is a sports complex and a "lake" both within a few blocks of our meeting location.)

A Voluntary Junk Food Ban will be in place at all Arvada Game Day meetings. We'll request that as moral support to those participating in the Healthier Gamers Challenge, the group consider excluding candy, chips, fast food and other junk food from game day contributions. (This does mean the long standing Gummy Bear War will meet a cease-fire...)

Dinner arrangements will change from the previous big host provided family-style meals to healthy dish potlucks. Plenty of choices available, whether you make it yourself or pick it up from the deli.

***Members... Consider posting recipes or links to recipes below to help out fellow gamers who need ideas.

Game Breaks... During breaks between games, those of us taking the challenge will take advantage of the time and remember to get up from the table, stretch, get a breath of fresh air, perhaps take a short walk, or otherwise make sure we're not just sedentary lumps. There too many bad backs and bad necks in this group of fairly young gamers.

This one's simple... Play at least one dexterity game each game day. Two reasons: #1. Most dexterity games get us up off our arises, get our arms/shoulders moving and/or otherwise encourage movement and #2. Most dexterity games result in laughter. And, laughter has positive effects on health. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/stress-relief/SR00034

Water: Drink it. Instead of soda. It's also cheaper, like almost free.
