My mother and the p90x guide has suggested eating plain, non-fat yogurt. When I started p90x again I thought I would give it a shot. It tastes about like watered down sour cream. I thought, how in the heck am I going to eat this stuff every day. Well I found the answer. I put it in a breakfast shake. Here is the delicious recipe;

Breakfast Protein Shake:

3/4 cup skim milk

1 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder

1 cup non-fat plain yogurt

1 cup raspberries

1/2 of a banana

Then you just blend them all in a blender and drink. It is great! Give it a try. Here are some of the nutrition facts about it.
about 450 calories
2 g total fat
48 g protein
65 g Carbohydrates

I also wanted to post about running. It is great for you. When I started p90x back in michigan my heart rate would hit 190 sometimes when I was plyometrics. I was not running very much back then. Then when I got to boise, me and Ash started running more and more. I did plyometrics last night as hard as I could go and my heart rate hit 180 once for about 2 seconds. for the most part it stayed in my target area, around 173. I still think good old running is the very best thing you can do for weight loss, heart rate, health, ect.........


  1. Good for you! Yogurt is so good for you everyone should it it every day! If you get the Non-fat Greek yogurt you get all the good things about yogurt with only 4 carbs, 4 grams of sugar, but 11.5 grams of protein. I buy Stoneyfield farms organic. It it really good even plain.

  2. Hopefully this will be just what I need to get motivated and loose the baby weight and marriage weight. ha ha. I have never been very good at exercising or eating well so this will be hard but you gotta start somewhere right? Great idea!

  3. i copied your recipe and posted it on my blog so that others can use it. thanks for letting strangers (like me) join your blog... this will be a great tool on my weight loss journey!
