@clausdh For me personally I would create a separate goal that basically states I tracked my calories for the day. Some examples where I have done something similar include:
1.This goal was made to make sure I don’t delete my GTbee tasks as you can delete them without marking them complete so I do a daily check to make sure I did not delete any. (https://www.beeminder.com/linux535/nogtbeedelete)
- I didn’t want to have a beeminder goal for a lot of smaller simplistic tasks. So I decided to use the streaks app to put in all my smaller tasks (about 8 tasks). Issue was I wanted to find a way to hold myself accountable to not deleting my streaks goals since unlike a beeminder goal I could delete them on a whim. Thus (https://www.beeminder.com/linux535/nodeleteorreducestreaks) was born. It has worked great for me.
Note: As @apolyton pointed out this second goal could be a minimum amount of calories instead of a putting if you did or didn’t track your calories. Only possible issue is if you do track it for a day and happen to be under the minimum.
As @zedmango pointed out you can just make it a binary goal. The one negative is not being able to see all the cool statistics on the amount of daily calories in Beeminder. Another would be with this method you would be relying on your fine print which you can change at any time where as with a normal Beeminder goal it makes you wait a week for the change to happen. However this might not be a problem for you, it would be for me as I can be weasely sometimes.
Also welcome to the Beeminder forum and Beeminder! I have only been around for a few months on Beeminder (few weeks on the forum) and have really enjoyed it thus far. If you need me to clarify anything I said just let me know.
