  • If you’ve been working out this week (and it’s been a while since you’ve worked out) and you’re not enjoying the experience, just know you’re not alone! Many of you know (and I am sure many of you don’t) that it took me 12 years of fighting and clawing to finally have a baby. The year before I did the treatment that finally work (and the treatment I am hoping to do again in a couple months, fingers crossed it works again), I spent a year losing weight.

    I ended up getting pregnant in the beginning of February 2020 – right before the pandemic blew up (at least in the states). Being isolated in my pregnancy, being on bed rest for part of it, and other life stressors… I ended up emotional eating and gaining a lot of weight. This is not the point of my post though.

    Back to the year I spent losing weight before I was pregnant… I didn’t have the physical ability to do much more than walk on a treadmill. And I hated it. The only way to make it semi-enjoyable was to make the pace manageable enough maintain for 30-45 minutes, and to turn on a show from my phone and do my best to zone out. Like the image below, all my body organs resisted, every workout. FOR FIVE MONTHS. Seriously. I hit the treadmill 3-5 times a week and it took 5 months before I finally enjoyed working out and getting sweaty. My stamina and endurance naturally began to improve because of the weight I was losing. So many people say 30 days makes a habit, but I ready a study that said it takes some individuals (depending on their goal) up to a year to make a habit! So if you feel physical fight every time you work out, give it time! Things will eventually improve. KEEP GOING. These are the things I am telling myself as I work towards my health goals again.

    Also, I'd love to know in the comment section, what is your favorite way (or used to be your favorite way) to work out?

I prefer the elliptical because it doesn’t hurt my knees the way running does. I would like to get more into lifting weights, but it feels intimidating to do it on my own. I do currently have dumbbells at home that I use, but would love to do more than that someday.

I used to be all about the burn. Go hard or go home…every single day. And after a few years of that, my body literally rejected it. Now my body enjoys walking outside and Pilates or yoga here and there.

  • Hi! I’m Candice and I currently live in Virginia. I have 5 kids and started my health journey about 2 years ago. I have lost 50 pounds in that time. I did a few DietBets with Kateka and Stu, but took the last month off and started gaining back the weight I worked so hard to lose. So I am back. 😂

Like you, I tend to not do as well if I don't have a diet bet to help me stay accountable. One of the reasons I joined. Fabulous job on your 50lbs loss.

  • I will be announcing more challenges and prizes soon, but for now, please leave your email in the comment section of this post (or if you'd rather not leave it publicly, please email me at katekagood@gmail.com and I will respond to you that way; or maybe you can even download the image here from Dietbet...) if you'd like a copy of this month's coloring page/health tracker. I like to have my team members color this in during the month, and then when the challenge is over, I award someone with a bonus prize for coloring the entire image in. There are 30 squares/shapes (31 if you count the little tiny circle in the center) to color in.

    Don't forget to read about the introductory challenge we have going on in the post below! We will choose a winner for that on March 23rd.

    I can't wait to get this game started with you!
