Today is one week before Thanksgiving in the US. One week is also Beeminder’s akrasia horizon. That means if you would like to stuff yourself silly a week from today, or slack off, or otherwise make your yellow brick road do the opposite of what it normally does, then now is the time to adjust your road dial!

Our apologies to our Canadian users for failing to think to give a similar warning last month. And our apologies for our east coast users, for whom there’s only one hour left to flatten their roads!

Addendum

If you didn’t see this in time, fear not! It just means you need to make sure to have a couple safety buffer days built up before the holiday.

Final Addendum

It’s now t minus a week till the Monday after Thanksgiving. So now would be a good time to dial your roads back up! UPDATE: Now we have the “schedule a break” feature so you don’t have to remember to dial your road back to normal again!

    Thanks for the reminder! I’ve been so busy with political organization and job hunting lately. I would have forgotten to change the rates on my calories and weight tracking goals.
