I needed DietBet! Holy cow, people!! It’s like, all of the sudden, paying 25 bucks makes me accountable and committed to myself and my nutrition like a boss. Somehow it’s not hard right now. Well, that’s not all true, but you expect it to some degree. I suppose a lot of my success this week is owed to the fact that I spent last week prepping for this week by building better habits. I finally signed up for Habitica. It’s an app or online site that allows one to make todo lists, daily things one must do and habit building tasks to help build a better you:
As I check off tasks, I earn points. What for? Well. I’m a ‘healer’ in a tribe with my family and I get to buy clothes and stuff for my avatar. Ridiculous? Yep. Effective? Ridiculously so!! I find myself watching the clock every night, making sure that I can check my boxes for ‘don’t eat after 8:00’ and so on. By doing that for one week, I accidentally lost a pound and built habits that propelled me to better success this week. That said, I was pretty hungry on Monday night after reintroducing a diet rich in raw and plant based nutrients. That night I was bit by the sugar bug, bad, but I made it through the night and have been pretty solid ever since. The best part?
