Day 60: Another attempt at baking

Today’s baking attempt: breakfast cookies. I followed a recipe, but mine looked nothing like the pictures in it. Mine looked like this:

Looks yummy, huh? Yeah, I didn’t think so either. That being said, they’re not terrible. They taste better than the muffins, but they’re not great. The texture isn’t very cookie like. They’re also not very high in protein. Each cookie is 134 calories and only has 4.5 grams of protein. Granted, that’s more protein than regular cookies, but it’s not what I was hoping for. If all I’m getting is 4.5 grams of protein per cookie, I need the cookie to taste better.

Current step total: 580

Day 29: DietBet

So, I did a thing late last night. I stumbled across DietBet and impulsively joined a 6-month bet. DietBet, as I learned right before I signed up, is a website/app where you basically bet money on losing weight. Depending on what bet you choose to join, you have to lose a certain percentage of your weight by a certain time frame in order to hopefully win back your money and then some.

The bet I joined has six weight loss targets, one each month of the bet, that I’ll have to reach in order to win some (not much) cash. The first weight loss target is a month from September 4th, and it’s 3% of my weight (3.81 lbs).

That’s a little more weight that I had planned to lose this month by doing my Experiments 1 and 2. But, I joined DietBet for the motivation (considering I can be pretty competitive at times), so I’ll just have to weigh the pros and cons before I commit to it 100%. I have 14 days to decide. A 3% weight loss goal isn’t unreasonable, but it may require some changes to my aforementioned experiments. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Final step count: 15,569

Current step goal streak: 2 days
Previous step goal streak: 13 days
Longest step goal streak: 13 days
