My First Giveaway!

I'm very excited to be giving away a Yoplait Light Yogurt Gift Pack courtesy of Yoplait through MyBlogSpark.  The gift pack includes a gym bag, a reflective wrist wallet, a pedometer, and a coupon for a free yogurt.*  I've seen this giveaway on a few other blogs and boy was I happy when the offer appeared in my inbox.  Yippy, I have a giveaway!  Here is some information they gave me concerning their "Two Week Tune Up."

"This year, Yoplait Light is giving women a great new way to get ready for special occasions with the launch of the new Two Week Tune Up plan.

Whether it’s for a class reunion, a birthday, or your best friend’s wedding, Yoplait Light’s Two Week Tune Up could help you lose five pounds in two weeks by:

    * Replacing your breakfast and lunch with a Yoplait Light yogurt, a whole grain,
      and a fruit
    * Eating a diet rich in lean protein and non-fat dairy, including a sensible dinner, beverages, and snacks
    * Walking 30-40 minutes daily

Please visit for study and full diet details.

By visiting, consumers can find the full plan details as well as robust online tools to help them lose weight and boost their confidence over two weeks.

To help women look and feel their best, Yoplait Light has provided tips and advice available on, along with valuable online weight loss tools such as a meal planner, healthy recipes and a daily food and exercise tracker. With 33 delicious flavors of Yoplait Light to choose from, you can switch up your diet menu as often as you like."

At the end of this month I am going to have to wear a bathing suit!  If that isn't a motivator I don't know what is.  So it is time to maybe shed a few pounds but more importantly tone up.  This past week I haven't been exercising very much.  :(  It seems like everything else takes priority.  But I have been eating healthy so I haven't had to witness the numbers creeping up on the scale... yet.  So I better get back on it.

Yoplait provided me with the prize pack they are offering you and a few coupons.  It was great to receive a box like that as a motivator.  I use yogurt a lot as a substitute for mayo.  That really helped me last year.  Since Mother's Day 2009 I have lost 22 pounds.  So I can honestly say yogurt has helped cut a lot of calories.  I'm not a big "grab a cup of yogurt" girl but with some of the new flavors I've found I have been excited to taste a few.  They have some great flavors that could kick up any smoothie.  

So even though I've been being healthier in general over the past two weeks, I think I'm going to try a little harder these next two weeks and let you know how I do. 
You can also find a coupon for $.75/4 on yoplaits website HERE.  And if you are already there you might want to see what this Two Week Tune Up is all about.
