MyBlogSpark: Yoplait Light’s Two Week Tune Up


I told y’all that I was on a mission to be Fit, Phat & Fabulous this year (or rather to keep up the race & pace), so when I was offered the opportunity to participate in The “Yoplait Light Two Week Tune Up” Challenge, I said YES!


This year, Yoplait Light is giving women a great new way to get ready for special occasions with the launch of the new Two Week Tune Up plan. Whether it’s for a class reunion, a birthday, or your best friend’s wedding, Yoplait Light’s Two Week Tune Up could help you lose five pounds in two weeks by:

  • Replacing your breakfast and lunch with a Yoplait Light yogurt, a whole grain,
    and a fruit
  • Eating a diet rich in lean protein and non-fat dairy, including a sensible dinner, beverages, and snacks
  • Walking 30-40 minutes daily

I got my  Yoplait Light yogurt gift pack in the mail that included 28 VIP coupons so that I could stock up on all the Yoplait Light yogurt I would need for my Two Week Tune Up. Also included in the prize pack was a gym bag, a reflective wrist wallet and a pedometer to keep me moving and motivated. 


I went to the store and I picked out all the my favorites and decided to try a bunch of the relatively new flavors that you hear about on the commercials like Black Forest Cake, Key Lime Pie & Red Velvet Cake. I didn’t need the pedometer to keep me moving as I was already well on my way to “moving” training for a 10miler, triathlons & just plain working out. I ended up using the bag to cart my new swim gear.


Well, sports fans, the road to purgatory is paved with great intentions. I started out on the Tune-up all fine and dandy, made it three days and ended up get bronchitis or some gosh awful cooties that made me absolutely miserable. I fell off the wagon. Just when I was beginning to feel better and I restarted the Tune-up I got that 24 hour stomach watch me re-enact the exorcist bug and well, I just wasn’t – just couldn’t handle eating two spoonful's of yogurt let alone twice a day.


What I can tell you is this – the three days that I did eat Yoplait Light Yogurt twice a day – DELICIOUS. They are truly just a yummy & tasty as they sound on the commercials…and since TheFireMarshall went ahead and finished them off like a dessert or snack…I think I have some backup on that review.


I’ve lost about 5lbs total although I don’t think I can attribute it to just the Tune Up. I’m pretty sure my own personal exorcism played a part too. If you want to find out more on how you too can participate in the Yoplait Light Two Week Tune Up, go to
