My reflection on the 14 day Activia challenge
Two weeks ago I embarked on a “journey” of sorts, taking part in the 14 day Activia challenge. (To learn more about the experience of myself and the members of my team click here!)
The Activia challenge is a 14-day commitment to make more mindful choices and to enjoy an Activia twice a day for 14 days. This challenge is a stepping stone towards developing long-term healthy habits!
I started the Activia challenge with a few hopes and goals in mind.
- Commit to healthier eating overall
- Work on developing better gut health
- Challenge myself by committing to trying something new
Well, I’m pleased to announce that I’ve achieved all these goals!
Here is my reflection on the 14 day Activia Challenge
I started noticing some changes after about one week of the challenge. I noticed I felt less bloated overall, and my tummy seemed to be rumbling less after eating than it has in the past.
I enjoyed the Activia pure yogurt (plain flavour) throughout the challenge. This yogurt is vegetarian-friendly, and I liked that I could flavour it with fresh fruits and other toppings.
I also noticed I felt more full while doing the Activia challenge. I don’t know if this has to do with an increase in protein or calcium in my diet, but for whatever reason, I wasn’t getting my usual 3 pm slump. (where I usually reach for some sort of carb-loaded snack.)
One thing I loved about the challenge was how easy it was to integrate eating Activia into my day. The small containers are great to take on the go, which I usually would for my afternoon snack. In the morning I enjoyed adding a container of Activia to my usual breakfast of chia pudding, oatmeal, or a yogurt parfait.
Being in the mindset of doing a “challenge” really helped me feel more in the zone to take on a healthier lifestyle. I’m already quite active regularly but felt more committed to working out, and eating healthier during the 14-day challenge.
Moving forward I plan to maintain my commitment to this healthier lifestyle, including being active, eating well and making sure to take care of my health!
