happy friday, everybody!
did you know that i am a fitfluential ambassador?
that means that fitfluential [a company] decided that i [ME!] am influential when it comes to healthy living // lifestyle // fitness. it also means that i get to partner with some pretty awesome companies that will make all of our lives easier!
do you know this site? go see here.
you join a dietbet group [can be your friends, can be total strangers] & place a bet [anywhere from $10-50 ; the group you are in decides the amount]. then, you work your little butt off for the next four weeks. the goal is to lose 4% of your body weight [its always 4%, regardless of your weight!]. if you reach your goal within the time frame, you split the pot with all the other winners.
the site itself is pretty cool. it has a 'wall-feed' similar to facebook, so you can comment on your workouts, what you are eating & general motivation.
you can weigh in as much as you want, but only your initial weight & the final weight count.
fitfluential dietbet group! [you can still join! we are almost a week in, but people have been signing up each day this week!]
right now, there are 550 of us [!] and the pot is *almost* up to $14,000 [!!!]
i am not a huge fan of dieting [actually, i dont do it!] i measure recipes & ingredients, but find it SO time consuming to count & track each and every calorie.
also, if we are being honest, i can get a bit carried away with tracking ; obsessive, almost.
food is meant to be enjoyed & its all too stressful for me to count everything.
i have 4.4 pounds to lose in the next 23 days! i am not 100% confident that i will meet my goal ; but i am excited to try.
my goal is to continue to move a bit more each day & to take over a bit more cooking here at home.
[blake does most of the cooking & he just dumps an entire bag of pasta in ; never thinking about serving size!]
i drink smoothies every day for breakfast & have been making large batches of food for lunch. i snack on fruit, nuts and seeds.
the classes we take at the gym [body pump, body step] get done at 9pm, so by the time we get home, i go right to bed & read for a bit before *finally* getting to bed at a decent time!
also, if you have any awesome recipes to share, please do!
and hello! if all of this isnt motivating enough, what about the fact that you can split a $14,000 pot!?!
what do you think?
have you ever tried anything like this?
if i decided to create my own dietbet program in the future, would you be interested in joining?
