A knee injury has sidelined me. But...I've gotten back on the healthy eating and have managed to lost 4 lbs. I won't win this dietbet, but still feel good about my progress! Hope everyone is safe and healthy and has a great Holiday season.

I have had a pretty dismal first 2 weeks. I've been getting my steps in but my diet has been horrible and I haven't lost a pound. But I'm going grocery shopping tomorrow, getting healthy choices and will try to buckle down. I might not win, but need to get it together!!

At least you haven't gained weight. One day at a time.

All you can do is go forward. Being disciplined and consistent with food is the hardest part. Focus on consistency, not perfection.

**November 5 Challenge Check In**

If you logged a minimum 8,750 steps on November 5, then 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 activity in order to claim the prize. I will accept sweaty selfies showing the date, or screenshots from an activity app you use to track your exercise (i.e. Fitbit, Garmin, Polar, or other device you use).

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, RunBet 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 November 7 to comment. After that, a winner will be chosen.

October 31 - November 1

Happy Halloween to you all!

I'm sure you all have seen those graphics that have pictures of various types of candy or candy bars showing the calories associated with each, right? It usually then has an exercise of some type listed to show how many minutes of that activity you have to burn in order to eat that candy.

I just want to say a piece of candy is not the end of the world. Nor should any food you eat be thought of in terms of how many minutes you need to exercise to burn it off. Certainly eating an entire bag of Snickers isn't a good idea whether you're watching what you eat or not. But having a candy bar isn't going to derail all of your progress. What we do MOST of the time matters more than what we do SOME of the time.

Exercise is not a punishment. Exercise should be viewed as something we enjoy. If you don't enjoy it and do view it as a punishment, then you are less likely to stick with it. If the exercise you're currently doing is not enjoyable, find something you do enjoy.

- After all, if the exercise is something you enjoy then you'll look forward to doing it.
- If you look forward to doing it, then you're more likely to stick with it.
- If you're more likely to stick with it, then the more progress you're going to see.

So get out and move this weekend. Get in your 18,000 steps (combined total between the two days). Drink your water. Plan your meals. And if you end up enjoying a candy bar, ENJOY it. Don't beat yourself up about it, or put yourself through a grueling workout to "work it off."

Perfection is impossible. Consistency is the goal.

I had a few slices of pizza. And today I will get back to it. I've often viewed my diet and exercise as transactional. I'm now trying to view both as good ways to treat my body and to enjoy them.

thank you for putting into words what i’ve been struggling to tell my friends. I’ve lived in the enjoy/punish cycle with food most of my life. only with DietBet, FitBit and a few others, have i finally gotten over that brutal cycle

Way to go! I made a point to walk my dogs on the days I wasn’t at Orangetheory classes.

Warm is an understatement. It was in the mid 80's here in South Florida. I can't wait for some cooler weather.
