Want to get fit and healthy with a community of amazing teachers? Read on to learn how to join us!
If you’ve been around here much over the last little while, you may know that I just had my third baby, Peter, 2 months ago. As a working mom, I’ve found that it can be such a challenge to find time for myself and self-care. And since teaching is such a huge part of our lives, there are hurdles to fitness and weight loss that are truly unique to teachers.
I reached out in my Facebook group and it turns out many other teachers felt the same way, and also wanted to make their health a priority this year. So I started a Wife Teacher Mommy DietBet and a Wife Teacher Mommy StepBet.
Invest in YOURSELF and your health by participating one of these challenges with us. Join us in making 2020 the year of making a health a priority with a fun and supportive teacher community! Keep reading to learn more about these challenges.
Wondering how to decide which game is right for you, or if you should do both? Here’s some detailed information about how each works and the link to each one!
Wife Teacher Mommy DIETBET: January 13- February 9
Wife Teacher Mommy StepBet: January 13-February 24
You are betting $40 that you will hit your step goals each week. These goals are calculated by StepBet. You’ll have to hit 4 active days, 2 power days, and 1 free day. The active goal is calculated by doing a bit more steps than you normally do. Power days are even more than that. There is one free day that you can save for a rainy day. This is good for if you don’t reach your steps one day, forget to charge your tracker, etc.
The first week is also a practice week so you can get the hang of the gist of it. The first week, you will not be penalized for not hitting your goals. If you hit your goals every week after the first practice week, you split the pot!
Fit & Healthy Wife Teacher Mommies Community
I have also created a new Facebook group, Fit & Healthy Wife Teacher Mommies, for teachers who want to get healthy and fit. This will combine members who are doing both challenges as well as teachers who are interested and want to learn more about the Wife Teacher Mommy DietBet and Wife Teacher Mommy StepBet challenges. We will also share healthy tips and tricks in the group. You can join the group for free below!
Shift that mindset! It’s not spending extra money. It is an INVESTMENT in yourself.
You may wonder why you would need to spend money to join a challenge. I don’t see this as “spending money”. I see it as an investment in myself, and my health. Plus, I plan on losing the weight AND getting all my steps in, so I will get at least all of the money back, if not more!
Sure, you COULD use weight without joining a challenge. But this challenge is extra motivation to lose the weight or get active, along with a community of teachers who are doing the same.
Inside the DietBet and StepBet apps, you can communicate with other challengers right inside the app. While I love our Facebook groups (and I think you should join those too!) I love the community inside the challenges because everyone is working towards a mutual goal. You’d think that everyone would want others not to succeed so they get more money at the end, but that is truly not the case! We want EVERYONE to succeed!
I also love that you can check in easily after a workout or to express challenges with what you’re working on… WITHOUT getting distracted by other things on Facebook (it’s not just me who does that, right?) I’ll be checking into the Facebook group, of course, but I’ll be posting even more specific tips and tricks inside of the challenges.
