System change

I get a lot of points on l_points, but looking at the breakdown, 90% of it is points from calesthenics. Though calesthenics are important, they won't save my health if I'm eating junk food and staying up all night. To remedy this, jenn1224 has thought up a new point system, one that I think is fabulous and well balanced.

---

Calisthenics:
1 point for every five up to 100
1 point for every fifty after 100
Examples: 50 calisthenics = 10 points
100 calisthenics = 20 points
200 calisthenics = 22 points
1000 calisthenics = 38 points

Exercise:
1 point for every minute of strenuous exercise (something like
running) up to 30 minutes
1 point for every 15 minutes of strenuous exercise after 30 minutes
2 minutes of non-strenuous exercise (such as walking) counts as 1 minute
Examples: 10 minutes of running = 10 points
10 minutes of walking = 5 minutes of running = 5 points
30 minutes of running = 30 points
45 minutes of running = 31 points
30 minutes of running and 30 minutes of walking = 45 minutes of
running = 31 points

Eating Well:
5 points each for a healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner
5 points (total) for healthy snacks.
Deciding what makes a healthy meal or snack is up to the discretion
of each l-goolber. No partial credit. It's either a healthy meal or
it's not.
5 points for resisting weak foods (here, partial credit is allowed)
1 point for each serving of fruits/vegetables
Examples: healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, no craving
cave-ins, five fruits/vegetables = 30 points

Rest:
1 point for every hour of sleep, up to 8
2 points for taking some "me time" and doing something relaxing
Examples: 8 hours of sleep and "me time" = 10 points

Water:
full points for 64 oz of fluids (10 points) or 1 point for every 8 oz
any non-caffeinated beverage counts
Examples: 32 oz = 4 points
64 oz = 10 points
64 oz of coffee = 0 points

Bonus:
5 points for posting point totals within 1 day
Examples: points for 5/1 posted by 11:59pm 5/2 = 5 points
points for 5/1 posted on 5/3 (or not at all) = 0 points

A "good" day might look like this:
100 calisthenics = 20 points
30 minutes of exercise = 30 points
healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and two healthy snacks = 20 points
no junk food = 5 points
5 servings fruits/veggies = 5 points
8 hours of sleep = 8 points
"me time" = 2 points
64 oz of fluids = 10 points
Total = 100 points (plus 5 point bonus for posting)

For the most part exercise makes up 30% of the total, eating healthy
is 30%, calisthenics is another 20%, and then water and rest makes up
the last 20%, which seemed like a fair breakdown to me. I [jenn1224] think that
having a bonus for participation keeps everyone motivated to post
their results which will in turn keep everyone more motivated to stay
healthy.
