Hello! Here at 2 Fat Nerds, each Wednesday is a Weigh-In day, where all of the data from the previous week is collected, displayed, and analyzed.
Now, let’s dig in to the results!
Each week, members who have opted to have their weights publicly displayed for the world to see have them graphed on the main blog. It is a great way to keep track over time, and it gives a bit more accountability to your workouts. If you are interested, leave a comment!
Anti-fat points (AFP) is a system designed to give some sort of value to each and every workout, regardless of type. It is based on metabolic-equivalent values out of the compendium of physical activities. Submit a workout, get AFP. Each week we post the totals for each person for the week. In addition, you may see the monthly AFP leaderboard on the right-hand sidebar. This is meant to be a fun way to encourage competition to see who can earn the most points!
The Chain Game is a fun little system we came up with to see how many consecutive weeks a person can complete a minimum of three days of workouts. Every week in a row that a person completes the three-day goal, he or she adds one link to his or her active chain. For more information see this post!
Due to the large number of people that I assume haven't fully submitted their data, for whatever reason, I am going to delay posting this graph until later once everyone has a chance to update . . . breaking a chain undeserved would be tragic!!
The November Challenge
The November Challenge starts today! Please read up on the post from yesterday!
Below is a graph showing all of the different types of workouts submitted this week.
Each week we chart our cardio-based workout distances (no cycling included). This week, 157 kilometers have been tacked on to our journey!
I agree, keeping track of weight loss is essential to staying motivated. I’m a promoter of a fitness challenge and I caution my clients to not only rely on their weight loss but also look at inches lost. Sometimes the body will recomposition itsself and you won’t weigh less but your waist may get slimmer etc. Or you may gain more lean muscle which weighs more than fat. Awesome article love the graphs keeps people motivated!
Thanks very much for stopping by and reading! I would love to help people start tracking their measurements too, I think that would be really interesting to see over time!
I agree!!! Keeping track of measurements would be cool.
And congrats to you and Brindy for posting nice losses!
