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. If anyone is interested in taking part in weekly tracking, leave a comment!
In an attempt to optimize the speed and accuracy that I put up the weigh in post, I've moved to start automating some of the weekly graphs. Yes, I should have done this many years ago now, but I am finally getting around to it. I spent quite a lot of time last night working on the database and an R script to produce plots, and so far I've automated the Weekly AFP chart... I hope you like it!
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 leader-board 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 threshold is back to 100 AFP, Green is over and Red is under. Try to get 100 AFP and turn your bar green!
To put more emphasis on current progress and current streaks, I am now only displaying the current active streak for each player. It is calculated the same as before, minimum three days a week. Each consecutive week you gain a link.
