Whats your 5 mile time, Mr Wizard? Just curious, as you can do sub 2-hour half marathons I am not about to challenge you :)
I've never timed myself at such a short distance. My half marathon pace was 9.1 minutes per mile. However, for a shorter distance I know I could run faster. Probably about 7.5 minutes per mile, so let's say 37.5 minutes.
With a goal of 1700 calories per day:
If I burn 1200 calories at the gym (estimated via cardio+weight lifting+ class) and consume 2000 calories, does that mean I have a net of 800 calories for the day and can consume 900 more, or do I have to stop eating since I exceeded my goal of 1700 calories, but with the 1200 burned have a net of 500 calories for the day which does not seem like a lot. Hmm....
I think the NYE Resolution approach might be a good
thing, publicly stating what your goal is and then
tracking it. At least for me it might.
I also want (I think) to lose some weight, probably
about 40 lbs. But I'll start with 20 ! ! ! Actually a
nice milestone would be about 10 lbs!
I haven't exactly figured out what motivation I need to
Like others have posted, when this is something
as serious as your health, why would some
money on a bet make you (me) think you can lose
it AND KEEP IT OFF ?
Unless the odds for the forum get better than 1:1, I'd set the line for people to join V2.0 at 3.5 and I'd take the under, even knowing there's already 2 ready to go right now.
Lots of backlash, only Wiz is still on board.
Perhaps let this one run it's course and start a new NGS thread just for him?
