15,000 calories?


Assuming that I ride the bike four days a week and lift weights three:

Bike: 30 min, 350 cal
Weights: 60 min, 500 cal (est)
Week: (4*350) + (3*500) = 2900 cal/week
Assuming 4 weeks left, I only make 11600. And that's assuming no days
off, which I can't really swing with two trips back to Minneapolis. I
might be able to make it up because I do ride on weekends when I'm here,
and I'll probably lift, too.

Although looking at it in a slightly different light, if I were to ride
the bike for an extra 15 minutes or so, I could probably wrangle a
500-calorie burn. Follow that up with an hour of weights, and I hit my
1000-calorie a day goal.

Cripes, it's doable.

See, that's what I'm talking about right there.

If I swim, or do at least a 500-calorie workout (approximately an hour to 1.25 hrs on various machines) for 27 days, I'll make 15,000.

I could technically do it, but considering some after-work obligations this month, it will be tight. The original 15K cal challenge gives you 6 weeks... whereas I'm trying to do it in 4.

I admire you for doing this. I have never really gotten into working out. I'd do it for while and then stop. Can't seem to stick to a plan. Perhaps if I write it out like you're doing...

Dang, you are going to be hot before you know it!

Yeah-- by this time next decade, I should be trim!

Okay, a little silly. Figuring a good three years if I'm able to keep up the pace that I have set now.

And being in Iowa helps.

Hey! Cool! I'll be able to fold myself into a bathtub, or a Ferarri Boxster...

According to the tests that I had done this week, my body only burns 1,000 calories a day.. nahhh, I didn't fuck up my metabolism or anything.. how in the world would I have done that..
It's great that you're active though. I'm so fucking lazy..
