Today’s DietBet daily carrot is to think about the prize that awaits me if I win. One of the great things about this program is that it offers a tangible prize. For many people “feeling and looking better” are huge motivators, but they’re so abstract it’s easy to lose focus of them (I know I can’t get pumped up by imagining myself five years down the road). If you’re struggling to envision the end of your diet/fitness revolution, maybe joining a rewards-based program would help give you the incentive you need to succeed.
If you can’t find people to challenge you in a DietBet competition, there are tons of new and emerging rewards-based exercise programs out there. For example, with Earndit, you use an app to track your exercise and money you earn is donated to a charity of your choice. A similar tool is Switch2Health.
You can search for apps, programs, and more online, or set up your own system, where you reward yourself after exercising X amount of days in a row.
