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).

Now that we are past the halfway point, it's time to dig deep to find your success.

1. Stay (or find) focused on your goal. Try to shift your thinking from the number on the scale to what the number means to you - do you like how your clothes fit when you're at a lower weight? Do you have more energy?

2. Be consistent. If the majority of your calories each day are coming from wholesome sources (fruits, veggies, lean proteins, etc.) but you have a piece of Halloween candy, don't worry. It's what we do MOST of the time that matters more than what we do SOME of the time.

3. M-O-V-E! Getting a good sweat on can really help you stay focused. Why work hard in your workouts if you're going to undo everything by eating junk all day? Moving our bodies is good for us physically & mentally.

Focus + Consistency + Movement = SUCCESS

And to help you with that last part, don't forget the step challenge today. The target is your normal daily step goal (or past seven day average) plus an extra 750 steps. Are you in?

Moving right along to day three! And a friendly reminder that there is a step challenge today. The target for today's challenge is your normal daily step goal (or past 7 day average) plus an extra 250 steps. Unsure what that means? Find the **Challenge Winner Board** post. Read the second comment. It explains how to calculate your step goal for the challenge today.

~~~~~~~
Let's talk about "motivation" and "self discipline."

Motivation is defined as “the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.” Motivation is likely the reason why you decided to join this DietBet.

Motivation alone is likely not to keep you pushing each day. You need more than motivation to reach your goals - whether that be losing your 4% to “win” this DietBet, train for an athletic race of some kind, graduate from college, etc.

Self Discipline is defined as “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.”

Here are eight ways to build self discipline:

1. Make the commitment. If you really want to achieve your goals, then you must make the commitment to be disciplined.

2. Stay focused. Review your goals each morning before starting the day.

3. Prioritize tasks. Focus on completing the most stressful of your daily tasks first.

4. Get sufficient rest. Rest is just as important to losing weight as proper nutrition and exercise.

5. Eat for energy. Good nutrition equals a smarter brain and more energy.

6. Do the little things. Disciplining yourself to do the little things (making your bed, cleaning the house, keeping your car clean, etc.) will help you create the discipline to do the harder things.

7. Follow through. Make a decision and stick with it.

8. Reward yourself.

What have you already done today to work on building your self discipline - maybe without even knowing it?
