Chobani For Your Bones

0% non-fat, rich and creamy Greek yogurt....double the protein

I'm in l-o-v-e!
The fruit is on the bottom....the instructions say don't stir,
just scoop down to the fruit to keep the creamy texture

For coupons try this Chobani site

I had a blood test a couple of weeks ago that gave me a scare....

There was no Vitamin D in my system..none
Got started immediately on 50,000 units of D a week
and increased calcium to 2000 units a day
Here's a great slide show of good for your bones foods from Web MD

I feel so much better after being on 50,000 units of D for three weeks

After a bone density test last Friday and meeting with my doctor to discuss
Osteopenia, pre-osteoporosis, I know I have to work even harder to protect my health.
I'd already started lifting weights in January in addition to the walking we had been doing.
I signed on with a Trainer at the gym to meet with once a week to
start interval training and increase the weight bearing exercises.

JIll, my trainer looked at my Daily Plate meal log
and exclaimed, " You ate marinara sauce and no meat?
Where's the protein! Why didn't you eat any meat?
I told her sometimes I just don't feel like eating meat...
Jill then went into a list of foods that contain protein without eating meat
Tempeh — 1 cup — 41 g
Lentils — I cup — 18 g
Chickpeas — I cup — 12 g
Tofu — 4 oz — 9 g
Peanut butter — 2 tbsp — 8 g
Soymilk — I cup — 7 g
Brown rice — 1 cup — 5 g
Whole wheat bread — 2 slices — 5 g
Broccoli, cooked — I cup — 4 g

My goal last week was to get more protein...
Jill told me I would feel fuller and not reach for the carbs so much.

Back to the Chobani...14grams of protein, no fat..200mg of calcium's a winner!

Note: go to the Daily Plate there, sign up, it's free. Log in your food each day to see if you are getting the nutrients you need.

It's Delish!!!

A Careful Women I Ought To Be....

A careful woman I ought to be:
A little girl follows me;
I do not dare to go a stray
For fear she’ll go the self-same way.
I cannot once escape her eyes;
What’re she sees me do,
she tries
Like me, she says,
she ’s going to be,
The little girl who follows me.
She thinks that I am good and fine,
Believes in every word of mine;
The bad in me she must not see,
The little girl who follows me.
I must remember as I go,
Through summer’s sun and winter’s snow,
I am building for the years to be,
For a little girl follows me.
