I am crazy so i make bets like this with my friend haha. So we are planning on doing the tough mudder October and maybe? April. (Happy birthday to me! if April) Anyway onto the bet.

For the next YEAR. Starting from Jan 1st. We are not allowed to have these 6 items.

1. Bagels
2. Doughnuts
3. Muffins
4. Pizza
5. Candy (gum and mints ok)
6. Fries (sweet potato fries are ok)

Every time you take a bite its 1 instance. aka if i'm taking a bite i'm eating the whole damn thing.

Every penalty is $10 towards the OTHER persons fee into tough mudder. Fee is around 100 dollars.

Why is this going to be extremely effective for ME. I am a poor college student and i refuse to pay for a dude's tough mudder who makes 6 figures. Hell naw. I'm going to do this. Clean living what up?

Why the total deprivation? That would never work for me and I have no problem enjoying pizza and chocolate in moderation.

Yeah I think this is pretty intense. I eat a bagel on occasion and also enjoy pizza and chocolate once in a while. Tough mudder is something I wanted to do this year. Next year I'm going to join in the fun for sure. It's going to be awesome. It's a 10 mile run at a ski resort. So I'll have to train in the altitude too. But it'll be so much fun!

Well first off pizza was off the list like....a year ago due to a recent lactose intolerance problem mwreor. And we can have things if its like a birthday, wedding, or anniversary. Do we really need to have it any time. These foods were originally meant to had as a once in while indulgence.

Also he said it's not a real bet if we dont make it really hard.... i hate him nbd.

7. Cookies
8. Pancakes

(cries)

but then again its all about self discipline.

You ARE crazy! I would just pay up and continue to eat the things I like Smile
As you said, they are once in a while treats. Can you not just pay if you eat them more than once a week or so? The problem is that depriving yourself leads to cravings and the risk of binges or giving up completely. Good luck Smile

hahah well if you look at the list closely it just includes SOME treats. I'm a creative mofo. I'll just make other things dont you worry haha. I view this as a way to expand my palatte to other delicious things haha. But no its really just about can you have the discipline to not eat those things.
