If you’ve ever heard of the website “Diet Bet,” you’re probably pretty familiar with how it works…The site hosts these “diet bets” for people who are committing to getting healthier and losing weight. Typically, you “buy in” with your own money and bet that you’ll lose at least 4 percent of your body weight in a certain period of time, and lots of other people do too! Essentially, you bet on yourself to win! And, if you do, you get your money back plus a little extra!
Obviously, if you lose, though, then you lose your money. It’s a great way to get motivated and hold yourself accountable. BUT…what if I told you you could do THE SAME thing without fronting any of your own money?! Would you be in??? Would you want to get PAID to get fit?
Well, I’m excited to let you in on a pretty big secret, but you have to keep it quiet…
So this is probably a little late in coming, but I figured since I am officially in full holiday mode that now is better than never! As we finish out our Christmas shopping, I really wanted to shift my focus this year and do a little something different. I’ve always tried to de-emphasize gifts, but especially as our daughter gets older I want to focus more on sharing experiences with her than just gifts.
While that is still hard in a few ways with her age, I figured I could at least focus on doing it with everyone else on our list. So I decided to do a little brainstorming and came up with a few different ideas for gift ideas that were more than just gifts!
If you are looking for that perfect idea for someone who just seems to have it all or if you simply want to make more of the holidays than just giving things, then check out these ideas! Continue reading

Even my husband enjoyed it, and he’s always the naysayer when it comes to crazy “health foods.”
I loved this option so much that I decided I’d share my recipe with you so you can give it a try too! It’s SO easy and super-yummy! Plus, it kept me full longer than your typical wheat toast would!
I don’t know about you, but it seems like for me the holiday season has always been about one thing…The FOOD! Now, don’t bet me wrong. I know the real reason for the season, but as far as celebrating goes, most of our traditions revolve around food. And I don’t mean the healthy ones. So as I begin to plan for the upcoming holiday season, I’m determined to make this year different.
I don’t want to sacrifice all of those things that I enjoy, including the flavors and scents of the holiday season. But I want to be able to enjoy and find a little more balance with everything. So here are the 5 ways I’ll be making this holiday different in an effort to stay on track! Continue reading
