January 17

Friday!

What is your plan to stay the course this weekend?

Are you eating out?
Have a plan! Check out the menu in advance to see what will fit into your daily food intake. Then LOG IT. Plan the rest of the day's food around that meal.

Take snacks with you.
Carry healthy snacks along with you so you're prepared while you're out running errands.

Water. Water. Water.
Speaks for itself, but hydrate yourself!

MOVE!
Find fun ways to get movement and exercise into your weekend plans. If the weather is cooperating, why not take a bike ride or a hike? Play kickball with the kids. If the weather isn't cooperating, how about a dance party inside?

Think about Saturday and Sunday with the same mindset as you do Monday. Be proud of the choices you made come Monday!

Not seeing a drop on the scale but definitely feeling so much better and less bloated. Maybe Monday will be my day to see that drop 🙏

**January 16 Challenge Check In**

If you logged a minimum of 9,500 on Thursday, January 16, 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 steps in order to claim the prize. (*Please do not post pictures when you comment.)

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 January 18 to comment. After that, a winner will be chosen.

Jen.. What is the name of the App? I don't have a fit bit either but I do a lot of steps and wondered how I could get them entered?

DietBetJen

If you have an iPhone, it's just called Health. On Android, it's called Samsung Health (I think).

It's Thursday so that means it's time for another step challenge - 9,500 steps or more. Comment below with the appropriate reply.

A - Already crushed it!

B - I'm on it!

C - I have a plan to knock it out!

D - I forgot there was a step challenge today.

I am in need of help. I workout everyday! 30-45 minutes. I do have not have a lot of options for workouts. I have an elliptical. I walk my dogs. I am looking for an app that can add to my workouts. I went up 9 pounds in a week. I am a women, so that does play a part in it. I have given up sweets, soda, and alcohol. HELP!!

Thank you everyone. I am going to log my food on the Fitbit app. I feel I do portion control very well. This might be a rude awakening.

Kerrie H.

I am finding that logging my food is really helping. I haven't seen too much of a drop in weight but am definitely feeling less bloated. Sodium is definitely one thing to watch for. I dropped 6 pounds in a week myself once I started cutting out the sodium. Best of luck. You will find what it is and crush it!

We are officially into the second week. That means it's time for us to look back over the last week.

On Day One, I posted this:

"But getting started is the easy part. Anyone can click "join game," pay the bet and submit pictures. Here are the tough questions you should ask yourself.

- Am I going to be committed for all 28 days of this challenge?

- Will I tay focused for all 28 days to achieve MY goal?

- Will I put in the work required for all 28 days?

To achieve your 4% goal, what are you going to commit to doing (or not doing - i.e. giving up something) for the entirety of this challenge?

Use the SMART method to determine what your goal(s) will be not only for the next 28 days, but also all of 2020."

Let's reflect on the last week. If you created a SMART goal for this 28 days, how did week one go?

I lost 4 lbs. That's my focus and win. After over 4 months of consistently buying chips and pop on the weekend, I have not had chips or pop once since I started this dietbet. That is a HUGE win for me!

DietBetJen

That is awesome, Sarah!

**January 14 Challenge Check In**

If you logged a minimum of 250 steps more than your normal daily goal or the average of the past seven days on January 14, please comment on this post.

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.
