Protein Mug Cake & A GIVEAWAY!!

by Destini on July 15, 2013

This post was meant for Friday, however my site is currently changing hosting providers and I had some technical difficulties. So the site was up and down and not posting. ACK. It appears to be all up and running again!! Thank goodness!!

Now that is all behind us(I hope), let’s talk about some fitness. I have continued doing Revolt Fitness, but also have upped my gym time. I love Revolt Fitness and even after my 12 weeks, I will continue to use it. That being said, I have now started to go to the gym regularly again. I always went before, but I have definitely logged in way more hours as of late. Working out with the hubby makes me bring up my game! My 30th birthday is looming right around the corner (3.5 weeks) and I have this determination to be at my best for it. Whatever motivates you, run with it!

Recently I introduced a protein mug cake recipe to the hubby, since then……. HE IS ALWAYS REQUESTING IT! It has taken many versions and many freak outs…..but I think I might just have figured it out. I also had some help with some really great protein. Those of you that have read my blog and followed my strife with trying to find a happy medium with the hubbys allergies know that I can’t just go and use any protein in his diet. It has to be lactose free & gluten free. The poor man can’t really have much that comes out of a package anymore. And let’s all be honest, that isn’t a bad thing, just more work for me 🙂 So when North Coasts Naturals contacted me to try out some of their products, I was more than ready to give these a try. We’ve tried several natural proteins and have found some pretty good ones, but this one tops the cake for the hubby. He LOVES it! He says it breaks down perfectly in his blender cup, no chalky taste and has no tummy reactions from it.  YAY!! Oh and I forgot to mention that it’s a Canadian company!!!! Is it possible to love them anymore?

Ingredients: Yields 1

  • one scoop of North Coasts Natural Chocolate protein (or any chocolate protein)
  • 1/2T coconut flour
  • 1/4c almond milk(or any desired milk)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1T cooca powder
  • 1 packet of stevia (or liquid drops)
  • 1t baking powder

Directions: Mix all ingredients in a kitchen oil sprayed mug, cover and microwave for 35-40 seconds(watch this as it may be mushy or to dry).  Flip upside down and put it on a plate.

Toppings:You can honestly just go crazy here, but this is what my husband recommends.

  • 1T almond chocolate butter (I heat this up for 25seconds and spread it on the cake like icing)
  • pb2 maple sauce (1t pb2, 1tsp almond milk, 1/4t pure maple syrup)
  • assorted fruit

Oh it’s quite yummy and you would NEVER know that it was pretty guilt free. BONUS!!

WHOOPS!! I didn’t realize that I photographed the french side and not english. But you guys get the idea right? LOL

Remember how I said it was not possible to love North Coast Naturals anymore than I already do? Well guess what…they want you to love them just as much!! I will be giving away not one, but two tubs of protein. You pick Chocolate or Vanilla(Oh and I may just have ANOTHER recipe with the vanilla, this will just get you ready). This will run from Today, July 15th to July 23rd at midnight CST. Only open to Canadian Addresses.

I am off to do my Revolt Fitness program for today! Cardio baby!!

Oh another little true story….I run in the Color me Rad 5k Saturday morning and I haven’t done a LICK of running in a couple months. I better get going on that…

Have a great evening 🙂

Never underestimate social media

by Destini on June 24, 2013

Sorry for no Fitness Friday post. For those of you that hadn’t heard, Alberta had experienced large amounts of flooding last week and still this week. I have quite a bit of family in Alberta and an aunt that lives in a small town south of Calgary that was hit the worst. The town had been evacuated, but we had not heard from her for almost 30 hours. But with the help of social media, she was rescued and is okay!

Here is some photos from around the web (photos are linked to the source)

So I just wanted to give a big shout out to all of you. I know some of you helped in sharing her photo. My family really appreciates all the love and support. I can only hope that there is more stories such as ours. I send my love and thoughts to all those affected by flooding in Alberta and wherever else that is or has been affected by flooding too. It is extremely heart wrenching.

So the truth in how my workouts looked last week; I did my Revolt all week, minus Thursday & Friday. I end up missing Thursday’s all together, but did my upper body and a tabata workout on Saturday. I also went into the gym yesterday and did a core plus cardio session. I feel that it all worked itself out. I can’t stress this enough when it comes to fitness programs, listen to your  body. You know your limits, and you  know how to push yourself just a little bit farther. But if things are happening in your life, place the energy that is needed on those.

Really need to work on those triceps some more!

This post is going to be short . I just wanted to give everyone a quick update of why the no post etc.

Hope everyone has a bright Monday.

If you want to know how you can help aid any of those affected by the flooding, please visit the Red Cross website.

June 10, 2013

My weekend was a wonderful sweaty one! Spent a lot of time at the gym and keeping up with my Revolt Fitness program.

Let’s Compare – Revolt Fitness Check-In – Week 5

June 5, 2013

Happy Wednesday! Today is my rest day and it was great to be able to get some stuff done. I am mid week into week 6 for my Revolt program. Still seeing big changes! Week 5 I pushed through like always. Even when I am tired and can’t keep going…I go! I was asked in a comment what my opinion and the difference on DailyHiit (formally known as BodyRock)  vs Revolt Fitness. Now as most of you already know, I am currently a blogger for the Revolt Fitness program. I have in the past did DailyHiit.  I feel that this would be much better addressed in a post than just […]
