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’m giving away some coupons to try out the new Yoplait Source Greek Yogurt for yourself, AND a $100 LuluLemon gift card to one lucky winner!!!

I’m a KINDER Mom #KinderMom

11th September 2011

It’s official – I’m a Kinder Mom. Mmmmm…..chocolate.

Kinder eggs have always been a part of our celebrations – hiding in Easter baskets, stuffed in Christmas stockings and even birthday loot bags. My little ones love to choose Kinder eggs when given the choice of a special sweet treat, and love the anticipation of the special little toy.

Personally, I can appreciate that Kinder eggs are made of high quality cocoa, real sugar and the classic visible milk lining (yes, they’re also peanut free!). This company has been around for over 30 years, and it’s time for a fab relaunch of Kinder Surprise in Canada. This August, they launched a new 2012 line of Kinder Surprise toys (over 70 brand new toys) – you can see them here. Included are inflatable toys, water toys and toys that are so big, you will be shocked they even fit in that egg at all.

We love a good toy at our house, and playtime is an everyday thing for sure, whether it’s during the week or the weekend. We absolutely make time for it, and the kids insist on it as well. We have game nights every week, which guarantees that all four family members will spend some fun time together. We’ve even converted our former tv/media room (sorry husband) to a play room to accommodate all the fun stuff for the little people in our lives. One of our favorite things right now is the basket of costumes and props that we dress up in and have fun with. I just love to see my kids using their imagination and having fun together, so I’m happy to encourage it as much as I can.

Make sure to go check out the Kinder website and find them on Facebook.

Proactiv – One Month Later & Giveaway Winners

14th January 2011

So it’s been a month already since I started testing Proactiv for Mom Central.

I have no idea how that happened.

I’ve been using Proactiv on my face for one month, twice a day.

I cannot tell a lie – there were a couple days there that I may have passed out on the couch, and was too dead to wash my face, but for the most part, I was a good girl. (FYI: This happens when you’re an old lady so it was out of my control.)

What did I think?

I have to say that I’m really happy with what I’m seeing so far. I thought the products were light, non-smelly and pretty gentle for their effectiveness.  The best part for me was that they did not dry out my skin, which is a big problem for me this time of year. I’m sorry I don’t have a picture to show you but I can assure you that my pores look much prettier than they did 30 days ago.

Also during the last 30 days, you’ve had the opportunity to enter to win one of five full size Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizers. A little info about the moisturizer:

Most blemish treatments work to control and remove oil from the skin’s surface and therefore, by nature, can be drying. A soothing, oil free moisturizer is key to replenishing and repairing the skin. Proactiv Solution Green Tea Moisturizer is a light moisturiser that absorbs instantly, delivering soothing hydration to dry skin.  It is formulated for blemish prone skin with concentrated botanical extracts and powerful antioxidants that leave skin feeling refreshed and moisturized.  This mineral-rich, non-comedogenic formula won’t clog pores or leave skin feeling greasy and is suitable for all skin types.

And the five WINNERS (using random.org) are:

1. #20 – Lauren E

2. #1 – Sarah

3. #35 – Chantal

4. #31 – Londia

5. #17 – Chelsea

Congrats to all the winners!!! Please email me at maria (at) boredmommyblog (dot) com with your Full Name, Address and Phone Number. Thanks to everyone who entered!

New Proactiv Canada Blog Tour & Giveaway

15th December 2010

I used to have really nice skin – I would get comments on it all the time.

I was that person that never had acne during those years you’re supposed to be plagued by it. I was one of the lucky ones. Although, I did have braces and poufy bangs, so it all evened out in the end.

However, things changed when I had babies – or what I like to call – attack of the hormones.

Ever since then, I’m plagued much more often – it’s very annoying. I miss my cute skin. Now I get maam’d all the time – I blame the acne.

I’ve seen the Proactiv commercials many times, and I’ve thought about ordering their products, just as often. So I jumped at the chance to try out their products, thanks to MomCentral Canada – yup, I’m doing the 30 Day Proactiv Challenge (or what I like to call – the END of being Maam’d). I will be using the New Proactiv 3-Step System.

The new 3-Step System (Renewing Cleanser, Revitalising Toner and Repairing Treatment) are the same proprietary and effective formulas as Original Proactiv, with the same luxury skin-care ingredients – only the active ingredient (BPO) has been improved. New Proactiv also has the same great texture and fragrance as Original Proactiv.
So here are all the details on the 3-Step System:

The 3-Step System: Designed for daily use in the prevention and treatment of blemishes, it gently cleanses and exfoliates while targeting blemish-causing bacteria in the pores.
  • Step 1: Renewing Cleanser: A unique oil-free formula, with exclusive micro-crystal pharmaceutical-grade benzoyl peroxide, that contains smooth, tiny beads to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and other impurities.
  • Step 2: Revitalising Toner: A refreshing, alcohol-free toner with glycolic acid that helps balance skin tone and remove dead skin cells to reveal the vital, radiant skin beneath. Its special formulation to balance skin’s natural acids includes witch hazel to refine and purify pores and aloe and chamomile to soothe and soften.
  • Step 3: Repairing Treatment: A light, oil-free lotion containing exclusive microcrystal pharmaceutical-grade benzoyl peroxide. The Repairing Treatment penetrates deep into the pore to help heal blemishes and help prevent future breakouts. The advanced delivery system is safe for the entire face and any other blemish-prone areas.
After the 30 days, I’ll be blogging about any changes/improvements and announcing the winners to the giveaway!
*Five (5) lucky winners will receive a full size, Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer valued at $33 CAD!*
