I have partnered with Dannon to help promote Activia. I have been compensated for my time commitment to review Activia. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to post positive comments. #ActiviaChallenge
Hi Lovelies! Today I’m going to be giving you my two week update on my Activia Challenge experience! Are you participating with me?? How are you doing, any struggles yet? It’s been pretty smooth sailing for me!
I have to be honest, I really do love yogurt but finding the time to eat it at two separate times during the day has been a struggle for me. What I found has worked out best is to have both of my daily yogurts together as a meal instead of a snack. I’ve tried a variety of fruit mix ins and I have to say my favorite has been canned pears!
I’ve been using 4 pear halves in a bowl and covering it with two of the same flavored Activia yogurts. It is SO good and more filling! I’ve had this for breakfast quite a few times or lunch.
I bought a TON of different flavors in the regular style of yogurt when the challenge began and I’m almost out. I’m going to be doing my weekly shopping trip this weekend and I’m going to pick up some different kinds. There are so many more flavorful kinds I can try like Mixed Berry, Blueberry and Vanilla! I’m definitely going to pick up a bunch of Activia Greek flavors this week, I can’t wait to try some of the fruit on the bottom varieties, especially Raspberry and Tropical Fruit, YUM! Activia Greek is the best of both worlds, still packed with the digestive benefits of Activia and a thick, creamy texture. I’m going to try and start working out again, I’ve already lost 3 pounds on my new fruit/yogurt meal replacement and doing some cardio will (hopefully!) help me shed some more. That’s where the Activia Greek will come in handy, it will be great for a protein packed lunch or post-workout snack!
There is also Activia Greek Light, a lighter version of their popular Greek yogurt. Activia Greek Light is only 80 calories and has all the benefits of Activia Greek with 0% fat and 2x the protein vs. regular low fat yogurts.
Here are some great tips from Activia Brand Ambassador, Laila Ali for living a healthy lifestyle:
“Start the Day off Right: Whenever I have a busy day scheduled, I always make sure I have an Activia Yogurt in my fridge. These delicious, creamy low-fat yogurts are rich in flavor and help me easily stay on track with the Activia Challenge!
Work Out: Fit it in when you can. You don’t have to do a two-hour workout at the gym – I rarely have time for that anymore. I like to take the kids out for a bike ride, or go for a run while they ride their scooters along with me. Doing little workouts throughout the day will help to improve your mood all day long.
Pack In The Protein: After I complete a workout I always grab Activia Greek! It is a great post work out treat. Plus, with seven delicious flavors to choose from I get to switch it up regularly.
Laugh: I surround myself with people that make me feel happy and make me laugh. Staying positive and enjoying my surroundings always keeps me in a good mood.
Make Wise Food Choices: You are what you eat! I spend one day a week cutting up fruits & veggies and making healthy dishes that my family can eat throughout the week.”
Just like when exercising or dieting, it is always easier to have a partner to do it with. Someone to keep you motivated and accountable! I think that is a great idea for this Activia Challenge as well, because let’s face it, it’s easy to forget things!
