Yo! What's up?



I am a muncher. Honestly, I'd have to list it right at the top of the list if I had to describe my biggest weakness.

Now, what I munch on can obviously be a factor in my never-ending quest to find my waistline again, so I have to make a conscious effort to reach for something sweet but healthy.

That's where Yoplait yogurt comes in. I am not even kidding you when I say that one entire shelf in my refridgerator is, at any given time, completely filled with a variety of Yoplait. This means that when I get the munchies during late night blogging sessions, I can tame the beast and still respect myself in the morning.

I recently got a chance to try the new Yo-Plus Blueberry Acai, which I loved! It's creamy and sweet with live and active probiotic cultures to help regulate your digestive system. Even better, you've also got your fiber, calcium, and vitamins covered when you indulge in a little Yo-Plus. So what's to lose?

If you'd like to enter for one of three chances to win your own Yoplait gift bag containing a (BPA free!) water bottle, a purse-sized journal (great for keeping on track when out and about!), and a coupon to try the new Blueberry Acai, just leave me a comment describing your biggest weakness and how you try to keep yourself in check. And PLEASE remember to leave your email address or I can't contact you to tell you that you have won. Entries will be accepted until midnight (Mountain Time!) on April 23. Good luck!

Additional extra entries are also available if you:
* Become a fan of Berrie Sweet Picks on Facebook
* subscribe to my RSS feed and comment letting me know you did so.
* Blog about contest and link to this post.

My biggest weakness is Coconut Cream Pie. I keep myself in check by only having a small piece if I have an urge. I then make up for it by eating less that day.

My biggest weakness is eating at night. It's so easy to plop down in front of the tv and just munch away. I can combat that by putting my laptop in my lap and it keeps my hands busy. It doesn't always work, but it helps.

My biggest weakness is any type of dessert and the only way to keep that in check is to not buy it at all. If its there, I'll be eating it morning, noon and night.

I have a tremendous weakness for chocolate. There are times in life when chocolate is just necessary. I try not to have it too often but when I do I try to keep it to a little square of like Dove or something of that fashion so I feel I have been satisfied but not gone overboard.

My biggest weakness is chocolate. I try to have fresh fruit on hand instead to satisfy my sweet cravings.

Sandra K321 said...

My biggest weakness is dark chocolate. I try not to buy it so it's not in the house. If I do buy it, I only allow myself one small piece at a time (and tell myself it's better for me than milk chocolate.)

My biggest weakness is salty snacks and the way I combat that is not to buy it, or if I do - I buy in a very small package.

Jason Stewart said...

My biggest weakness is procrastination. I know I should exercise but I just can't get moving.
Sometimes I try setting a timer on my watch for 5 minutes and telling myself I only have to workout for the five minutes. After the five minutes pass, often I don't want to stop.

My biggest weakness is chocolate. I combat it by storing dove chocolates in the freezer. Since they are too hard to bit in to, I am less likely to overindulge. I take out one each evening to have after dinner.

My biggest weakness is chocolate. Anytime I see that it's on sale, I buy it. With the way the economy is going for us right now, we don't have much money to spend on chocolate (I MISS IT!!!), so not being able to buy it has helped immensely!

My biggest weakness is snacking at work. We are only allowed hard candy or snacks from the vending machine while we are at our desks. Vending machine snacks are notoriously unhealthy but I have a hard time making myself walk past without getting something.
