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.ย 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 hereย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚


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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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?

Weekend Recap 10/20/13 and Meal Planning

This past weekend was just what I needed….. a weekend that was almost school free and fun!

Saturday I had to go to school for orientation for my mental health and OB clinicals! After class I rushed home to get ready for a wedding. We missed the ceremony because I was at school but we made it for the reception! The best thing about the reception was it was at the same place that Scott and I had our reception. It was really fun to be back at Oak Marsh Golf Course.


Steph and I stuck together during the dance because half the time we couldn’t find our men. They are both very similar and such social butterflies! Steph and I love to dance so we had no problem dancing with or without the boys.

I was not able to get a decent pic of the bride and groom due to not having my nice camera with me. All the pics turned out blurry….. but Kelsey looked amazing!

During the dance someone requested What Does The Fox Say. ย I hadn’t heard the song before but of course Scott knew every word! Check out that link for the music video…. very weird and funny!!

Sunday we relaxed in the morning and then headed over to my parents house to get Maisy. We ended up hanging out with them for the day. We watched Hangover III and went out for a late lunch/early dinner! Sunday was the perfect day….. very relaxing!!!

This morning when I headed outside with Maisy I couldn’t believe it was snowing!!

It’s hard to see it snowing in the first picture but you can see the evidence of the snow on Maisy! She loves the snow!! I love the first few snowfalls, when the temp is still in the 30’s but once we hit a month or so of freezing I’m over the snow ๐Ÿ™‚

For the next 3 days I don’t have to work so I will be studying, cleaning and cooking! Thursday I have a test and friday I have to work…

I have a few recipes planned out for this week!

Monday: Rachel’s for lunch

Tuesday: Mashed Potatoes with Shepherd’s Pie Meatballs

Wednesday: Chinese Chicken Salad Rolls (I’m making these for dinner at my parents!)

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: Leftovers

The Chinese chicken salad and the meatballs are inspiration from Rocco DiSpirito. Check out his pinterest page! He is a chef who tries to make comfort food healthy.
