Before I get to talking about DietBet a little about this week….

Tuesday evening when I left clinicals I walked outside to some big beautiful snow flakes! I really love the first few snowfalls. Partially because I know it wont stick and also because it is always so pretty.


Maisy really really loves snow. Scott took her outside in the morning and when they came in she whined for about an hour because she just wanted to go back outside. I took her outside and we played fetch in the snow for a long time! She was so tired when we got back inside.



DietBet is a website where you can join or start your own game to bet on losing weight. The games are either 4 weeks or 10 weeks. I joined a 4 week game. You’ve got 4 weeks to lose 4% of your starting weight. To begin, everyone puts money into the pot. After four weeks, whoever’s hit their 4% goal is a winner and splits the pot. The bet for my game was $20. No matter what as long as I lose 4% I get my $20 back and hopefully more, it just depends how many people lose 4%. To prevent unhealthy weight loss you cannot lose more then 12% and you cant go below a BMI of 18.5. If anyone would like to join in you still have time!!! The game starts on Friday so go here and sign up!!

My goal is to lose 4-8% in 4 weeks!

Healthy food I’ve been eating in the past couple of days…


I really love this blended greek yogurt…. I have a texture problem with the greek yogurt that doesn’t come pre-blended…. I don’t know why but I like my yogurt super smooth and this blended yogurt is!! I really love the strawberry cheesecake flavor… which of course you can only get at TARGET 🙂


This salad is so good I’ve made it twice and I will be making it again today!!! It has romaine lettuce, strawberries, carrots, yellow pepper, almonds, turkey, bacon bits and poppyseed dressing! So good!!!!


This morning I had this triple protein breakfast bowl. I really wanted to make a breakfast burrito but decided to add extra veggies and get rid of the tortilla 🙂 I included venison bacon (super lean), 2 eggs, broccoli, yellow pepper, red onion, a small sprinkle of cheese and hot sauce. So good!! I will be making this again…. probably tomorrow! I need to buy some egg whites because next time I will do 1 egg and egg whites!

I will be sure to keep you guys updated on my healthy eating progress, workouts and DietBet progress!

Anyone want to join in on the DietBet?
