New yogurt brand and a workout update

I've been a fan of yogurt since I was probably 5 or 6 years old. I love to try new brands and I was happy to find M├╝ller yogurt at my local grocery store over the weekend. I tried their greek variety and their fruit up lowfat yogurt. I loved both. The peach passion fruit was so creamy and tasted different, but in a good way.

I also had delicious Trader Joe's Balela on a huge salad for lunch this week.

This flavor was so yummy and made for a great dessert. I had the strawberry greek yogurt for lunch today and that was fantastic too. The sugar content in their greek is close to Chobani (18 g). I paid $1 on sale for the greek yogurt.

I actually didn't get to try any of the tea that I received from the tea exchange yet, but I did try the Lotus green tea Tazo flavor that a co-worker gave me and I would definitely purchase it. 

I haven't talked about my workouts lately--I got to the gym four days this week and I am trying to add some variety to my routine, plus lift heavier weights. Staying active has really helped me deal better with work stress. It's my busy time of year and I find that all of the multi-tasking has worn me out physically and mentally.

I'm so happy it's the weekend! I am looking forward to relaxing a little more than last weekend. On the agenda--a tire rotation and oil change (worse than going to the dentist), dinner with a friend at an Indian restaurant, reading Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio (so good--I hope to finish it this weekend), meal planning, Europe trip planning and I already did some of this tonight--genealogy research on Ancestry. I know, I am a total nerd. I just got access to the paid site and I think I looked up about 10 family members so far.

Good night!


  1. I just saw that yogurt at the store last weekend and was intrigued. Thanks for the insight.
    Happy Weekend!

  2. Tazo green tea is my go-to tea at Starbucks when all my coffee-drinking friends want to go there :)

  3. I'll have to look for this yogurt for my middle daughter (she's a yogurt connoisseur ;-) )
