For this challenge you specify your maximum daily energy intake (daily or average) and your exercise goals (or a combination of both - intake minus exercise). How many days can you achieve both in a row? Also say when you lose a pound or 500g.

    I want to eat no more than 6,000 kilojoules (average since Christmas/New Year are coming) and my exercise goal is 3 minutes walking/3 minutes running plus 1w,1r for each additional day until I hit 45 min total.

    Today: stay under 6,000 kJ, walk 60 minutes, run 5 minutes. Walking drops by 2 minutes a day, running increases by 1 minute a day.

    Starting tomorrow: keep my food intake under my average daily energy used, and slowly ramp up my running times to 45 minutes, variations allowed.
