Like women all over the world, I have committed to make 2011 a healthier one for myself. My goal for week 1 was to add aerobic exercise into my routine. Week 2’s focus has been increasing my water intake. I’m going for small and simple steps that will lead to a healthier me by the end of the year.
I have a major sweet tooth (I’m sure you’d never guess that coming to my blog….) and so I am constantly fighting the urge to pick up some candy or eat a bowl of ice cream. I know that I am not going to get very far with my healthy goals if I keep snacking on junk every day. Another small change I’ve made has been to eat a cup of yogurt as an afternoon satisfy-the-sweet-tooth snack. It totally does the trick AND it fills me up so that I don’t feel like snacking even more. I know that being healthy is not only about eliminating the bad things but adding in the good things, too.
Luckily, Yoplait is committed to making it easier for women to add more calcium to their diet every day with the newly reformulated Yoplait Original style yogurt. Now with two times the amount of calcium of the leading yogurt (that’s 50 percent of the Daily Value in one convenient 6-ounce cup) Yoplait Original yogurt provides women with an easy and delicious way to get the calcium they need. Yoplait Original also contains 50 percent of the Daily Value of vitamin D, which helps with the absorption of calcium. Yoplait is committed to women’s health and is proud to offer a product that has even more of the calcium and vitamin D they need for strong, healthy bodies.
In an effort to further educate women about the importance of maintaining strong, healthy bones through an active lifestyle and a diet rich in calcium, Yoplait is partnering with TV host and celebrity mom Nancy O’Dell on a one million cup giveaway of Yoplait Original yogurt. Visit Yoplait on Facebook to sign up for your free cup and make a personal commitment to meeting your calcium needs each day. While you’re there, take a moment to enjoy daily calcium tips from Registered Dietitian Katherine Brooking and healthy lifestyle advice from Nancy O’Dell.
Yoplait sent me a special Women’s Health gift pack, and I have another to give away to one of you! The gift pack includes a VIP Coupon for a free sample of Yoplait Original yogurt, a duffel bag, speed rope, water bottle and sport towel.

Disclosure: I was sent a Yoplait gift pack through My Blog Spark, but my thoughts are my own. I even started eating more yogurt before this campaign!
