Thanks - I enjoy the motivation of your challenges, even though I haven’t managed to ‘win’ on the weight loss front.

**October 13 Challenge Check In**

If you logged a minimum of 1,000 steps more than your normal daily goal or the average of the past seven days on October 13, please comment on this post.

From those who comment, I will select a winner at random. I will email this person (using the email address associated with his/her DietBet account). ONLY this person will need to provide verification of his/her steps in order to claim the prize. (*Please do not post pictures when you comment.)

You will also need to provide verification of your daily goal, or your seven day average - whichever you used to calculate your step total for the challenge.

This person will have 24 hours to reply with verification. If I don't hear back by then, the prize is forfeited. And a new winner will be chosen. The winner will be a choice between either DietBet credits (may be used towards the bet payment of either a DietBet, WayBet or StepBet, awarded immediately), or an Amazon gift card (sent once all step challenge winners are identified).

If you comment on this post, please be sure to check your email after the check in period ends!

You have until 9:30 am EST on October 15 to comment. After that, a winner will be chosen.

First, I just emailed the randomly selected winner from Wednesday's challenge. This person has until 11:00 am EST tomorrow to reply. If I don't hear back by then, a new name will be selected. Be sure to check out the challenge details for the weekend challenge starting tomorrow. You'll find what you need on the post titled, Challenge Winner Board.

Earlier this week, I explained the difference between Motivation and Discipline.

Brief recap:
Motivation: the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.

Self Discipline: the ability to control one's feelings and overcome one's weaknesses; the ability to pursue what one thinks is right despite temptations to abandon it.

Self Discipline is choosing between what you want NOW versus what you want MOST. Remember those thoughts or feelings that drove you to join this DietBet. You were motivated to join, but now that we're on Day 5 you need to build/establish or strengthen the self discipline that will push you closer to your goal.

Stay focused. Remember why you started. Make those hard decisions that will push you closer to that goal and give you a sense of pride at the end of the day.

May I suggest continuing to stay engaged with the group? Often times I see a lot of comments in the first few days and then that starts to wane as we progress through the challenge.

What is something you are doing now to strengthen your self discipline?

Doing personal development. And also I run a fitness accountability group via Facebook. That holds me accountable because as the leader of the group, these women look up to me. My group has been going strong now for 9 months and the women and I have become a family. This keeps me moving!!!

Katie H.

I love the comparison between motivation and self discipline. I often have lots of the first and not so much of the second! I've been pondering on these ideas ever since you posted. My weakness is stess snacking, so I put up notes reminding myself that I can say NO to the food I don't need.
