Do One Simple Thing To Feel Better In Two Weeks

Take the Activia Two Week Challenge to feel better and improve your digestive health in just two weeks!

This post is sponsored by Activia but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Admittedly, I'm a terrible breakfast eater. Most days of the week, I skip it. I even skip breakfast in my current state, five months pregnant with twins! Give me a cup of coffee (yes, I can have just one while pregnant) and I'm good to go until noon, sometimes as late as 2pm. However, I know this isn't healthy. Non-pregnant Paige can live off caffeine and adrenaline from an advanced yoga class, but pregnant Paige shouldn't. I needed to get better about taking a minute to care for myself and my in-utero babies. I had to keep it simple, because I'm already a busy mom of two kids under age 4 and run a tight ship of schedules to manage. Enter the Activia Two Week Challenge.


The principle was simple enough: Eat a cup of lowfat yogurt or drink an Activia Dailies yogurt drink once a day for two weeks and evaluate for yourself the impacts the probiotic-loaded yogurt has on your gut health. The packaging of the product makes it really easy to consume, even if you're constantly busy or constantly juggling little ones like me. Besides the probiotics, it was a great way for me to get 4g of protein in the morning to keep me and these twins I'm growing full and fueled. 

Activia is easy to find at your grocer. I happen to be loving anything peach flavored lately (blaming the babies on that one - besides fresh seasonal peaches, I've never been much of a peach fan before!) and was thrilled to see Walmart had the yogurt cups stocked in my favorite flavor. Bonus: They're currently offering an Ibotta offer to get cash back on your Activia purchase! Get your $1 offer here.


The rest of the challenge is pretty straight forward: Eat a serving of the yogurt a day. Take notice of how you feel. After two weeks, the brand is betting you'll feel better, more energized to tackle the day because you've taken a moment to prioritize yourself, and experience improved digestive health.

My two weeks are up today! So what changes am I noticing? First, the probiotics, carbs and protein are a great - and frankly necessary - mix for pregnant mamas. Sure, I *can* run on my cup of coffee and feel agitated and struggle to get through my morning yoga practice. But when I took a moment to eat the yogurt I felt SO much more energy and so much less irritated. The natural sugars gave me a boost of energy (and satisfied my peach craving!), the protein kept me full throughout the morning, and the probiotic helped balance my gut health and encouraged regularity.


Sometimes life is funny and gives you opportunities at just the right time in life. This was one of those times for me. Activia reached out to partner and I thought, "Actually, yeah... All of those things are things I should be doing for myself right now! Sign me up." Their two week challenge is great because everyone can commit to doing ONE thing for themselves for just two weeks. Everyone can take just a few moments and focus on themselves, having just a few minutes of "me time" a day, even if you're growing additional humans while you care for others. There's no risk to you - only reward! Take a moment, enjoy your day and get some protein and probiotics for your health while you're at it. You'll be glad you did.

  8. NOW LIFE IS WORTH LIVING WITH THE HELP OF EDWARD JONES FINANCE

    Hello Every One, My Name is Trevor Cohen live in Texas and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now. I really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling Dad with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that credit score was bad, from there i run to my father and some of my freinds but they could not help, then when i was surfing through the net i came across a loan lender EDWARD JONES who provides loans at an affordable interest rate of 2% and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this time, in my desperate situation i had no choice than to give it a try and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $85,000.00 and i payed for my son surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk. I could in turn start something profitable with the remaining amount and i said to my self that i will shout loud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender EDWARD JONES and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing Company via: Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com

  10. Those who are desperate to lose weight should understand that the only way to achieve their goals is by making some compromises and lifestyle changes. Add some natural supplements such as ketone supplements to these lifestyle changes and success will be guaranteed. This is the only way in which you will succeed.

    If you have any questions about Love, Money, curse, protection, bad luck, divorce, court cases, or about me please call or email me. I really want you to feel comfortable before moving forward with any spells, or other services. I will take the time to explain things to you and provide you with honest advice, to what is best for your situation.

    I perform my Rituals only at night between the hours of 0.00 - 0.59 (South African time) lasting 1 hour but of course, this depends on the nature of the ritual, some rituals might take hours and can also become necessary to be performed at specials places like; flowing streams, cemeteries and other places dictated by the gods.
    I do not want anyone to be under any illusions about my spells and its numerous rituals. Real and effective Voodoo is no child's play, it is expensive because, after the rituals, I will have to destroy all the materials involved by fire and the ashes scattered over a flowing stream or river.
