I have been dominating my 2013 Goals – Running and 2013 Goals – Personal. Okay, maybe not dominating, but I am really happy with the progress I am making, it is definitely a step in the right direction. The one area I am not doing as excellent in: 2013 Goals – Healthy Eating.
I let myself go a bit over the holidays even though I swore I wouldn’t and it has been hard getting back on track. However, the past 4 days I have done great. I am down almost 3,000 calories so far (I love counting them and seeing those negative numbers) and I think I know why- at the beginning of this week I signed up for a Diet Bet and I am really excited.
I have to admit I wish the Diet Bet started this week since I have been doing so much better. I want those calories and pounds I will be losing to count toward my total. However, I am super excited to weigh in this weekend and start the Diet Bet on Monday.
I am really hoping to win my money back, but I went into this knowing that even if I miss the 4% weight loss goal (which is about 7 pounds for me) and don’t win my money back if I lose those first 4-5 pounds it will be worth it. Don’t get my wrong though, I will be trying very hard to win! I cannot wait for this extra motivation.

What is usually your biggest struggle when losing weight?
How do you overcome that?
My big struggle is that this Diet Bet is smack in the middle of Restaurant Week and Poogan’s Porch Menu Rollback. I usually eat out once or twice a month, but I have 5 reservations in just 3 weeks. I am still going to allow myself to enjoy my dinners out, but I plan to be even stricter about my healthy eating the other days.
P.S.- What are the chances of me winning all $4,575?
