Can you believe that September 1st is on Sunday!!?? That’s so ridic. Where did the Summer go? In fact…I feel like I remember the rush of Fitness January as if it were last month. I guess that is what happens when you’re so busy you can’t even take time to fully experience what’s going on around you. I need to do a better job of that. I feel like I am always rushing, rushing, rushing and then catching up like crazy!
I’m so happy I don’t get to go “back to school”. I remember how much anxiety I used to have thinking about new teachers, new friends, old friends, homework, summer reading, boys…UGH! But you know at least with school you got summer vacation! Now I just work all the time. Fun work though! Not complaining. Actually my summer days as a student were not so fun…I had to take summer classes and those were THE WORST. Ah, probably the worst one was taking a pre-course to AP Physics for like 5 hrs a day 5 days a week. Torture. TORTURE I TELL YOU!
Anyway, with the new month, I wanted to surprise you with the Blogilates Official App and then motivate you to still stay fit as our schedules get busier. I already made the #SWEATEMBER calendar, integrated it right into the app, and per your request, I am hosting our 2nd Dietbet game! I saw how happy you were after the last one. How motivated! How positive!! Together we lost 31,900 lbs! Isn’t that crazy??!!! I designed this next month’s #SWEATEMBER calendar to include more cardio toning days to make sure you can get lean in case you’re thinking about doing the Dietbet.
Last time we broke the record and us POPsters hosted the largest game EVER in Dietbet history ($149,700 in the pot what what) and since, it’s not been broken! Our army of strong and driven POPsters are a force to be reckoned with!! *Raises fist in air*
Because Blogilates is a healthy living community and not a strict weight-loss only community, I feel that is is extremely important to surround yourself with people heading down your same path if you are looking to shed some pounds. Doing things together is A LOT easier than doing it alone.
So here are the rules if you’re interested in joining!
– Game starts Sept. 3 but you can join now to COMMIT. Click here to join.
– You bet $25 that you will lose 4% of your body weight is 28 days. (If you’e 150 lbs, you need to lose 1.5 lbs a week or 6 lbs in 1 month.)
– You weigh in when the game starts with a photo of you on a scale with a secret password and then you end the same way. The photos are looked at by real humans who make sure you’re being real.
– We will all contribute towards a pot, then anyone who makes the bet (you lose 4% of your weight or more) gets a split of the pot.
– If you don’t make the bet…it’s ok! Most people still saw a positive change in their body by participating.

Good luck! I know we’re going to have so much fun! Jelly of your shoes. I don’t even have those yet!! But I liked the color so I thought it’d be cool to give one of you guys this shoe. Then you can tell me how it is 🙂
