My first real 5k race and Greek Yogurt

Saturday, June 29, 2013

This week I made huge strides towards my athletic goals without even stepping in the gym....I did two things that have been on my bucket list 1.I joined PETA Pack which is basically a competitive team that runs/walks/cycles to raise money for animal rights and 2. I registered for my first real official 5k race the Color Me Rad run that will be here in Vegas the week of my 35th birthday!! So I intend to run this whole 5k-that feeling I get when I cross that finish line knowing I achieved my goal-that is my birthday gift to myself emoticon emoticon emoticon 2 me!!!
so I now have 100 some days to train and raise $500 for PETA, I'm hoping all my sparkfriends that are animal lovers and or vegetarians would pretty please donate to my link as soon as I have it up...

Also today I bought a food that was on my bucket list greek yogurt...
the local supermarket had their brand on special for .68 so I thought what do I have to lose right?? As I sit here writing this I'm trying the's so bitter! YUCK! not even any fruit in it like regular Yoplait light. Now I need to ask all of you...did I just buy a bad brand of greek yogurt or do they all taste so bitter with no fruit? I really wanted to like it for the higher protein amounts in it.
So spark friends please let me know what brands you like or don't and your take on the yogurt! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    We buy plain O% Fat Greek yogurt and add in our own fruit or stir in a Tablespoon (or whatever the serving size on the label says) of fruit preserves. On occasion, honey.

    I love greek yogurt. You have to try several brands to see which one you like. I love Fage and Oikos. Good luck.

    Congratulations on signing for the race!

We love greek yogurt -but mainly one brand. The taste and texture varies from brand to brand and some of them just don't get it! Try Fage if your store carries it. We have found it at organic food stores and also, believe it or not, at Walmart!

Good luck!

    For me, it definitely took experimenting with different brands of Greek before I found what I liked. I remember the first one I tried I thought I would never pick one up again, but now that I've found what I like, I eat it ALL the time!

Good luck with the 5k!
