Get Healthy With Yoplait Source Greek Yogurt And A LuluLemon Giveaway

24th April 2013

Have you heard about the new Yoplait Source Greek Yogurt yet??

Truth be told, if I could pick anything to eat for breakfast, I’d have to admit I would eat Eggs Benny because there is just nothing better. However, health-wise, it’s just not something you can eat every day, unfortunately. So, my second choice is always yogurt and fruit – plain yogurt with fresh fruit. Love it. Same goes with Greek yogurt – I like it and the fact that it’s actually good for you is just a bonus.

There is actually a new Greek yogurt on the market now by Yoplait called Yoplait Source Greek Yogurt. It has twice the protein of their regular Source yogurt, has no added sugar and is only 50 calories per serving. It comes in several flavors including Vanilla, Strawberry, Cherry, Peach, Strawberry/Peach, Strawberry/Blueberry, Blueberry/Raspberry, and Vanilla Lemon. So, yum to that.

When it comes to getting healthy, obviously you need to do more than eat yogurt. Funny enough, through my constant reading/researching of how to get my old self back, I’ve learned many a thing about how to make it happen. Putting it into practice is a whole other animal, but I can tell you that these steps make a great start:

  • Drink WATER as your main beverage – ditch the juice and pop and crap that are just empty calories. Water with fresh lemon is the best thing to de-bloat that body of yours too.
  • Veggies are your friend – eat them every day, every meal.
  • Cut out all sugar, processed, junk and fast food.
  • Eat protein at every meal.
  • Eat fresh fruit but not unlimited because of the sugar.
  • Exercise every single day, in some capacity. Punching in the air while watching reality tv doesn’t count.

Are you looking to get healthy this year? Let me get you started with some yummy yogurt and something cute from Lululemon!!

    I try to make sure I have a snack in my purse all the time. Granola bar, 1oo calorie cracker/cookie thing….I am constantly on the go…and I usually break down and grab junk when I have nothing to snack on.

    My best way to be healthy is to count the calories I consume, do exercice each day, drinks lots of water. And lots of veggies on my plate with just a little meat. No rice, pasta, potatoes… If I have to eat bread, it’s high fiber, low fat.

    I try to shop the outside of the store. That way I don’t find myself buying as many packaged goods that are full of things that aren’t good for my family.

    Oooh I would love to win this! I’d say exercise whenever you can, get out and run around with your kids, walk them to school if you can, walk around the block while they ride. Do something daily. Everyone will benefit.

    I keep lots of fresh fruits and veggies on hand to snack on so I don’t turn to cookies and cupcakes. I also park at the back of parking lots so I get in a few extra steps.

    Honestly water. The more I can drink the better. And if I cut up my fruits and veggies before hand so they’re accessible in the fridge it makes it easier to make healthy choices.

    I drink as much water as I can handle – and I take the stairs at work as much as I can. I also have two girls learning about nutrition in elementary school so they keep us all on track with eating enough fruits and veggies!

    I find keeping healthy food in the house, including snacks is the best bet! If you have chips in the house guess what you are going to snack on? And my love of humus and veggies helps!

    I have always been a runner. It’s my “go to” exercise. I love to just escape and go for a run. I’m almost 7 months pregnant (baby boy #2 is due in July) and I still go for runs (more like jogs now) and I would like to continue for as long as I can until the baby is born. It makes me feel good and reduces my stress a lot. I just love it.

    Making exercise fun is the best way to stay healthy. I really don’t like the gym anymore so I try to keep up with my son when he’s out riding his bike or playing around at the track in the school yard (oh great now you are probably picturing some crazy mother hovering over her kid while he plays with his friends…IT’S NOT LIKE THAT AT ALL!!) πŸ˜‰

    If there are days I REALLY don’t feel like exercising at the gym, I tell myself to go and if after 15 minutes I STILL really don’t feel like being there I can leave. Most times once you get going you feel fine, if not I at least was able to sneak in 15 minutes of exercise!

    My tip for staying healthy/getting healthy is to start with baby steps towards a fitness goal to avoid getting frustrated and give up. It worked for me…. I set a goal late one summer to run a half marathon the following summer. Starting walking (normal pace) at the gym and gradually, increased the treadmill speed to jogging. It took several months to reach jogging speed but I made it, kept pace all winter and completed a half marathon that June!

    I have been struggling to lose weight without dieting. I really watch the products that I buy, making sure that they don’t contain any artifical colours, or flavors. Mostly I eat fresh fruits and veggies! Drink lots of water, don’t eat after dinner, unless it is on the weekend and pushing myself to exercise. Down 5 pounds so far, it is working.

    Cut out pop, french fries, and ice cream from your diet. I have no will power so if it’s in the house I will eat it. So buy simply not buying it in the first place, there is no temptation.

    Eat a nutritious breakfast – After a long nights sleep it is important to refuel. It will help you do better in school/work. Examples: Peanut butter on toasted whole-grain bread, yogurt with fruit, fruit on cereal/

    My biggest tip is to cut out unnecessary calories from beverages. Many people know that soda is full empty calories, but don’t know that their double double coffees from various outlets are full of calories (i.e Tim Horton’s double double has 230 calories with 26g of sugar!!).
    I used to drink up to 2-3 of these a day! It was one of the things I cut out to help me lose over 100 pounds. I now brew most of my own coffee and only use a tbsp of coffee creamer (25 calories) and if I want it sweetened I use a sweetener like Stevia.

    I’ve been setting goals that are realistic in a certain timeframe. I challenged myself to walk 5 km on the treadmill, then I challenged myself to do 8 km on the treadmill. I had challenged myself to do 10 km on the treadmill by the end of April and I hit that goal today! My next goal is to be able to walk 15 km at a reasonable pace by the end of May. I never thought I could do any of this but by breaking it up into realistic steps I have been able to achieve my goals.

    How do I stay healthy? I have eliminated all refined sugars from my diet, increased my fruit and vegetables consumption as well as my water intake. Lowered my carbs and increased my proteins. I run 5 days a week (currently training for a half), weight lift 3 times a week and do yoga twice a week. The key is healthy/clean eating and good old fashion exercise.

    My best health tip is make healthy foods ready to eat! If you have washed and cut up fruits and veggies in the fridge you are more likely to grab them if you are hungry, then if you have to do all the work to eat when you are hungry!

    I try to keep in mind that it’s basically all about eating less and moving more. I’ve been trying to just be very conscious of every bite I have. Nothing is forbidden, but I ask myself if I really want to eat this? Am I hungry? Is it worth the calories? And then I walk instead of drive whenever possible and if I can find a spare 30 min I might even exercise.

    What’s worked for me in the past is to be pretty rigid in diet and exercise… But I always make room for a cheat day. A day to indulge (a little, not a lot) if I’m feeling like I need a treat.

    My best tip? I wish I knew since I’ve fallen off the wagon so many times, it’s embarrassing. What I do know is that if I just remove the crap from the house, there’s no temptation so I snack on healthlier choices. And then when I do have a treat, it’s just that: a treat, not a daily thing. Yogurt is my friend, though…I use it in my ice cream maker and it almost fools me. πŸ˜‰

I also drink lots of water. Figured out yogurt was my friend a few months ago, fruit and veggies always!

    The thing that helps me most is not punishing myself if I slip up. It’s so easy to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Oh, I cheated, it’s all over, why even try, time to binge…We are given so many reasons to hate ourselves. A trip-up need not be one of them as it’s hard enough to keep things together sometimes.

    Even if I screw up I remind myself that I can always restart the healthy patterns starting that moment. Not tomorrow or next Monday or next month. Interestingly, having this mentality helps me avoid habit-breaking mistakes. If before I’ve even cheated I’m already planning on getting back on the horse at the next snack or meal, it makes me stop and ask myself, “Wait, why am I doing this now?” If I can think about it, it doesn’t need to happen!

    The ultimate result is improved self-efficacy, and confidence in self-control.
