I have some fun things to go over this morning but first, let’s talk workout!
I did a great arms/shoulders routine this morning before my run.
You may have noticed that I’ve done weights every morning this week and that’s for good reason! A few weeks back, I asked for three volunteers in each of the age groups 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. I ended up with far too many volunteers so there are actually about a dozen people doing this program now even though only 4 will be “officially” reporting back. On what you ask?
I had weights sent out to each “official” participant – a set of 5lb and 10 lbs. I challenged these women to follow a weights routine, which I supplied*, for three weeks – taking both before and after photos so we could all see the results. I want to put the “I don’t have time” theory to bed. These routines are all under ten minutes but are challenging and productive. Today we are half way through week one and I can already see and feel a difference in my arms and shoulders. Can’t wait to show you guys the results!
I treated myself to one of my all-time favorite breakfasts – Lemon Chobani with blueberries. So simple and yet so wonderful. I am secretly pretending that its SPRING even though it is currently snowing outside.
The lemon CHO reminded me of those delicious little cheesecakes I made for the Superbowl… and then a multitude of other recipes I’ve put together in the past.

There are lots more on my recipe page so check it out!
And now, for the GIVEAWAY!
Whenever I post a new recipe using Chobani, I inevitably get an email or some other message asking me “What CAN’T you make with this stuff?” Well, I don’t know! You tell me! I want to get all your “bet ya can’t make this!” ideas.
Send me your ideas, suggestions, or flat out “I dare ya” challenges by FRIDAY (March 2nd). I’ll randomly select ONE challenge to remake with Chobani.
What’s in it for you?? Whoever’s idea is chosen will receive a shipment of yogurt directly from CHOBANI** (Can I win?? – Sadly, no) and will also get a nice little CHO recipe collection from me. We want YOU to start your own “Chobani Kitchen.”
So, there you have it… now brainstorm some challenges! You can enter as many times as you like, simply comment below with your ideas.
* I am not a physical trainer nor do I have any sort of licensing in physical fitness. I merely put together a weights routine based on what I was already doing and asked others to follow suit. I am not guaranteeing any results.
** I am not paid by Chobani (or anyone else) to say these things. Chobani is providing the yogurt for this challenge.
