North Coast Naturals

Color me AWESOME!!

by Destini on July 23, 2013

Howdy everyone! Hope everyones week is going well. I just finished my workout with G at the gym. We were there for almost 2 hours. The place was just a gong show. I had a whole different plan written for today, but due to the lack of open space, I was not able to do it. I just did G’s tricep and chest workout as we can share the bench/machines. I finished strong though and thats what matters!!

This Saturday I ran in the Color me Rad 5k and it was a BLAST! SOO much fun. I think it’s probably the best type of run for a first timmer. I went with a group of friends. Check out our day 🙂

On our way to the race in stalled traffic! So many people attended that they extended it TWO days!!

Our “dirty” group photo!!!

What a hot mess!! 😀

Alright, time to watch some of my “shows” before bed. Day was a long one with the extended gym session. But before I go I want to announce the winner of my North Coast Naturals protein giveaway!! It was wonderful to see all the Canadian LOVE 😀

The winner is……

CONGRATS!!! Please email your address to destini{at}

Oh and Saturday I also finished my 12 weeks of Revolt Fitness. I will be doing a big write up on the whole program and how I feel about it! STAY TUNED FOLKS!!

Question: Do you HATE when the gym is super busy too? I love seeing so many people workout……but I still get frustrated 🙁


What was the most fun race you ever participated in?


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 🙂


Phew! What a weekend & Revolt-Week 6 Check-In

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. Sunday which is usually a rest day for me was spent with the hubby doing his leg day. WOWZER!! It was really the first time we ever did a workout together, I must say it won’t be the last. We just pushed each other more! <3 Here is my weekend via Instagram 🙂   The leg workout we did on Sunday consisted of this: Each exercise was 3 sets of 12 5min warm-up on the treadmill, brisk walk at 3.5 Squats with barbell – 20lbs + weight of […]
