    IMO, the best number would be whatever your personal TDEE is, minus a modest deficit of <500cals or so. It's really worth trying to figure that out to avoid downregulating your metabolism because if you go too low you'll feel like gnawing off your own arm and then overcompensate by overeating later on.

    I don't think I could do that.

    I just calculated my TDEE. I got 1674.

    Who in the world told you 750? That's incredibly low...

    Hmm...

    This has been a crazy week. Still not finding the time I need to train for the halfathon, owing to the chaos that is my college schedule - but of course that's no excuse for me. I seriously need to sort out my priorities in a more organized way. And I need to stop procrastinating on that task (with re-organizing, that is).

    Dad bought quite a few bags of apples from the grocery store this last weekend , so along with my water bottle (from which I've still been drinking a lot of water) I also carry an apple every day. [With the exception of Tuesday - because of transportation issues due to the Chicago weather, I stayed at home. But I still had an apple. ]

    I've started cutting down on the amount of carbs that I eat. Still not cutting down enough yet, but it's a start.

    Sorry, I went on a little hiatus but would like to keep a fitness journal and such. I apologize for the late start.

    Goals: Exercise 4+ times a week, gain weight/muscles. I have two personal trainers and I want to make them proud but I haven't done as much as I should.

    The first few weeks: I kinda failed but I am eating more.

    What do you mean by "it's normally how it works for me"?

    Hey Glycerine! Welcome. Would you like me to add you to the list of participants, or would you rather just in and out of this thread at will?

    Also, two personal trainers? Nice.

    Please post your summaries, everyone! I'll post the list tomorrow.

    We are reaching the 3-6 week period, which seems to be where we've lost the most people in past Challenges. So I'm especially curious to hear how everyone is holding up.

    ----------------------------------------------
    As for my summary:

    My main focus this week was managing willpower. Two weeks ago, I learned that I have 1 day worth of willpower when it comes to resisting junk food. Once my willpower was used up, I was vulnerable to binging. So this week, I allowed sweets two times, both times because of someone's birthday forcing junk food in my face. The trick was to eat a FULL meal before I ate the sweets, and then I used my willpower to eat the junk food slowly, and stop.

    I also finally realized why M-Th was so easy, while I struggled so much during Fri-Sat: I don't get enough sleep during the week. When I'm only getting 5.5-6.5 hours of sleep a night, of course I'm going to be tired out by Friday. Kind of obvious, now.

    So I'm adding a third goal:
    1. No sugar, small amounts of flour.
    2. Exercise 5x a week, with 4x resistance and 1x cardio.
    3. Sleep at least 7.5 hours a night.

    As for numbers, I did 4 out of my 5 workouts, and had no sugar for 5 out of 7 days. Slightly better than last week...
