1 Million Calories Challenge – Week 4

Jan 21 – I woke up early this morning after only six and a half hours of sleep. I need eight. I don’t know how much longer I can survive on getting only four to seven hours of sleep per night. I find it stressful knowing that I haven’t been getting enough sleep. I now…

1 Million Calories Challenge – Week 3

Jan 14 – I woke up early because of the dog, but that’s okay. I have decided to be as calorie restrictive as possible today as last night at my aunt and uncle’s place, I ate more than I should have. I think I ended the 13th with 100 calories left before hitting my cap.…

1 Million Calories Challenge

TL;DR – January 1st, I start a countdown giving myself 1,000,000 calories for all of 2019. My cousin decided to do a push-up challenge in 2018 in part to improve his health. He completed over 37,000 push-ups during the year. His dedication to a challenge that he set himself was really inspiring to me and…
