Will I hit my fitness goals this week?
Resolved
NO
May 7
M$130 bet
This resolves to YES if I: 1. Log how many calories I consumed + how much I weighed in the morning in my spreadsheet every day through and including 05/08/2022. 2. Consume 2600+ calories on each of those days 3. Go to the gym and complete my lifting routine (~1 hour) on Tuesday and Thursday, also Sunday. 4. Run at least 2 miles on every day that I don't lift. 5. Take creatine every day through and including 05/08/2022. * I might be flying out later this week (Sat or Sun at the earliest); if I do, then 1-4 won't be counted for those days. Useful information: 1. Calories/Weight I've been pretty inconsistent at doing this over the past year. I was very consistent for a ~3 month period and stopped after that (partially by choice, partially just stopped doing it). I started doing this "seriously" again 1 week ago; logged weight on 8/8 days (incl. today), calories on 3/7 days. I eat the same 3 meals every day for the most part and use Myfitnesspal to track my diet. I weigh myself as part of my morning routine each day. 2. 2600 Calorie Goal With my current lineup of meals (3 per day), I hit 2620-2650 calories per day. I expect this to be sustainable if I stick with 3 meals per day, but I occasionally have 2 instead due to poor planning. 3. Gym/Lifting My routine takes ~1 hour to complete. I've been lifting pretty consistently (~85% subjective score for consistency) for the past year, but did not lift for most of April due to external factors. I started lifting again last week and went on Tuesday and Thursday but skipped Sunday for bad reasons. The external factors from April are no longer an issue. 4. Running I'm pretty inconsistent with running, guessing I run maybe 20% of the time on days that I don't lift atm. I was pretty consistent at some times during the last year though (probably ~80% of the time). 5. Creatine I often just don't take it, usually for bad reasons (sometimes I forget, often I remember but just don't do it?? not sure why; this is something I need to work on). I will likely set a daily alarm or make it a habit to take creatine with the same meal each day. General I generally enjoy lifting, but I dislike the amount of time it takes (incl. commute, shower, etc.). I also don't currently lift at a consistent time; I started going in the very early morning last week to see if that worked better for my schedule. In the past, I always went in the evening. I'm ~5'7.5" and ~158 lbs. May 6, 1:17am: re: "* I might be flying out later this week (Sat or Sun at the earliest); if I do, then 1-4 won't be counted for those days." I now know that I will NOT be flying out this week. May 7, 12:46am: Failed on Day 5: Friday 5/6 (Didn't log weight or run)
