100 More

So I have completely fallen off the bandwagon. Life gets busy, things happen, and I get back into old routines and habits. Usually the first habit to creep back in is not making the best choices when I am eating. It becomes whatever is fast and easy especially when you have 5 little ones ranging in ages 8 months – 3 years running around the house 5 days a week. NO MORE! Old habits may be hard to break but taking time for myself should be #1 priority.
I have teamed up with Chobani to bring you ways burn 100 calories in a day! There are many ways that you can do this. The choice is yours!
  • Increase your step goal by 100 steps! We are all becoming obsessed (including myself!!) with how many steps a day and it’s becoming more of a competition. My average step goal is between 5000 and 8000 steps a day, which I thing that it is a good average being that I never leave my house during the day and I am running a home daycare. I have made it a point to push myself to get 100 more steps in the evenings before bed. This doesn’t take much time. Right before bed, I usually pace around my home for a few extra minutes
  • If you don’t have a lot of time in the evening just taking 10 mins and jog (in place, if you have to) and that short amount of time of jogging will give you an extra 100 calories burned for the day.
  • If you are a parent, you know that “the days are long but the years are short” — take an extra 25 minutes out of your day, unplug and play with your children. Get outside and take a walk around the neighborhood, talk to them about their day, or if they are younger talk to them about things in nature that you see. Make an obstacle course (inside or outside) and join in the fun with them. Before you know it, the 25 mins will turn into an hour and you and your children are making memories and burning calories all at the same time! #doublewin

Now I am not a HUGE yogurt fan but I did try the new Chobani 100 crunch before writing out this because I am one who writes about things that I enjoy or agree with. I can say that the blueberry cookie crunch was one that I will be purchasing again. (Side note: brain fog was heavy that day and a picture didn’t get taken!) But I can tell you that it was not only tasty but also a much better choice then some.
Most people believe that yogurt no matter what brand it is. You really need to read ingredient labels because some yogurts have added sugar. aspartame, and other not so good for you things added.
The Chobani Simply 100 line (crunch or not) is all about making healthier choices.

The Chobani Simply 100 line (crunch or not) that you can find here is all about making healthier choices.

So tell me…
How are you burning 100 more calories a day? Have you tried the new Chobani Simply 100 Crunch yogurt? Which one was your favorite?

  1. Hi there! I ended up on this blog through a strange wandering path through the Internet 🙂 I’m on my first TTC cycle and just entering the TWW, which of course means…symptom spotting!! :-/ During one of my more ridiculous Dr Google episodes, I found myself on a Countdown To Pregnancy thread (this one, in case you want to know just how ridiculous I’m being haha http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/forum/post.php?postid=3980) and after reading through your posts, I ended up on your Blogger blog. From there I read through your updates from mid 2011 (including your heartbreaking ectopic pregnancy story, which brought me to tears) until the blog abruptly stopped with a small update in Sept 2013 to join you on your new blog…where I was thrilled to discover you are now a mom to a 2 year old! Am I allowed to be happy for a complete stranger (that I only “met” about an hour ago)? I am honestly so glad to hear that your TTC journey ended so well! Anyway, I just wanted to leave this note to let you know that your story inspired someone today! Now I gotta get back to convincing myself that my headache is not actually related to lack of sleep due to jetlag, but rather an obscure early pregnancy sign 😛

    • Wow!! I am praying for you! Thank you for the kind words!

      I was just thinking about getting back into blogging today and you’re comment appears! Maybe that’s a sign! Stay in touch!!!
