DietBet – Bet on yourself!

by Destini on April 1, 2014

Hey everyone! I know some of you might still be seeing that beautiful white snow outside and may feel like it will be here FOREVER. But I promise(I hope) that Summer WILL come and along with Summer brings bathing suits, shorts, dresses etc. And I don’t know about any of you, but I have noticed that this horribly long winter has left not only that snow, but also a nice cushion around my body.  I am okay with that cushion right now(keeps me warm), but come Summer….I will wish it to be gone just like I wish that snow to be gone.


I have started up my regular workout routine again, back to eating pretty solid (No more oreos, side note…the USA has the best flavours of Oreos EVER. Us Canadians get vanilla or regular..maybe this is for the best). But I have decided to make a nice HEALTHY bet on myself. Nothing like a little personal investment to keep me accountable. It isn’t a HUGE investment, but for $25, I have committed myself to lose 4% of my body fat in 4 weeks. And with the help of DietBet, it can be a group competition.

If, at the end of 4 weeks, you have lost 4% of your body weight, you will split the pot with any other participants that have also hit the goal. That’s only 1% a week, very doable!. This is open to anyone and I encourage you to get friends and family involved!

Let’s all make ourselves accountable :) And I may have an extra prize for the person who loses the most %!

The contest starts April 14th and your final weigh-in is May 12th(just in time for that warm WEATHER) and I’m looking forward to hosting this for you all.  If you have any questions  please email me at

Be your personal BEST!

Cheers :)

Healthy Tuna Salad – Great for Lunch

by Destini on March 10, 2014

So its Monday and for most of us, we’re back at work! One thing I personally search for the most on the internet is simple, healthy, YUMMY lunches. I know my mayo-free egg salad sandwich has been a HUGE hit for so many of you, so why not take another popular lunch item, turn it into something……AWESOME.

Tuna Salad-2


Ingredients: Yields 2 servings

  • 1 can wild tuna in water
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup radishes, sliced
  • 2T fat-free mayonnaise OR plain greek yogurt
  • 1t red wine vinegar
  • fresh pepper
  • smoked paprika
  • romaine lettuce

Directions: Drain tuna. Mix all the ingredients and serve over freshly washed romaine lettuce. Sprinkle with smoked paprika and pepper.

Tuna Salad-1-2

George and I ate this everyday for work for SEVERAL weeks! It turns a rather cliche lunch into something super flavourful and delicious!

Tuna Salad-3

Best part is you can omit the mayo and replace it with plain greek yogurt!!

I hope everyone has a  good MONDAY!
