18 days . . . AHH!

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday 🙂

I’m in a great mood this morning because I found a new flavor of my favorite yoghurt . . .

If you guys like yogurt and haven’t heard of Noosa, please try and find it.

As a Colorado local now, I’m a bit partial to this stuff, but honestly this stuff is the best yogurt I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a lot).

Per their website:

You honestly can’t believe how beautiful it is in Noosa until you’ve seen it with your own eyes. Tucked away on Australia’s Sunshine Coast, this little shire is surrounded by sandy beaches, cool fresh rivers, and lush rainforests. There’s even a national park, where you can go walkabout and spot sleepy koalas swaying in the gum trees above.

“Sounds positively lovely,” you might be thinking, “but what does any of it have to do with this delicious yoghurt I’m eating?”

Don’t get your knickers in a knot! We’re getting there.

You see, we don’t think it’s a coincidence that the recipe for our uniquely thick and velvety, deliciously tangy/sweet yoghurt was created in such a paradise.

Nor is it a coincidence that when our founders landed in the Colorado foothills and found a similar culture here—gorgeous natural scenery and locals who love to play in it—they felt instantly at home.

They also knew it would be a great place to make the best yoghurt in the world for their mates in the US of A, which is how Noosa got its start here, and why you’re enjoying it now.


I’ve tried many of the other flavors, and am very excited about the peach!  Now go find yourself some 🙂 Trust me you won’t regret it


I really had to talk myself out of bed this morning . . . but after an indulgent meal and 2 glasses of wine last night, I shouldn’t have been too surprised about that.

Either way, after 20 minutes of some serious self chat, I put my big girl pants and hit the gym for my speed workout.  And now, I’m so glad I did 🙂

Today’s Workout: 45 minute speed work out 4.75 miles

  • 1-10 progressive run 6.0 – 6.9 increasing on the minute
  • 11-20 1 minute at 8.5-9.3 (progressive increase each minute) followed by 1 minute at  4.1 at 2% incline
  • 21-30 1 minute at 8.5-9.3 (progressive increase each minute) followed by 1 minute @ 6.1 
  • 30-40 6.0 – 6.3 progressive run increased every other minute
  • 40-4.5 3.7 @ 8% incline

It was a tough, sweaty work out that left me whipped but happy!


Yesterday was day 6 of the challenge, which means today is the last day!  I’m really looking forward to doing a recap and review of this past week because it’s been eye opening!  Yesterday I completed:

  • 150 second plant + 10 hip hips
  • 50 calf raises (2 sets of 25)
  • 32 push ups (real)
  • 50 reverse crunches
  • 50 squats

Not my best day — but work was busier than normal and I had date night…so that’s OK.  I still squeezed in some strength that otherwise would have been neglected!

Ok — time for work 🙂  I’ll be back this afternoon with a review of an exciting new product that Zach and I received as a wedding gift.  Here’s a hint

  1. I have a lot of admiration for what you’re doing with your workouts Ashley. I really have to do a better job pushing myself to workout, but I’m just so good finding excuses to convince myself that it’s a bad idea. Congratulations on your challenge accomplishment! 🙂

    • Awwwe thank you! 🙂 I’ve been struggling a bit with finding motivation, but honestly the blog has helped hold me accountable. Everyone on here is always so supportive, makes me feel that much better when I do fit in that dreaded work out at 6 AM! haha
