MEA CULPA! MEA CULPA!

Life is so crazy. I feel like mine is never slowing down and I don't think I am half as busy as some other bloggers on here. I have gotten way off track. I could blame it on going back to school or complications in my life, but I'm not going to. I'm gonna ask for forgiveness and move on the best I can. It's all I can do. While I was in school I stopped belly dancing. Now that I have graduated, I have gone back to it. I really missed it. It is one of the only forms of exercise I know of where you really make strong bonds with the people you dance with. My dance sisters lift me up when I am down and encourage me to be better. It is awesome.

I also have a new food obsession and that is Greek yogurt. I had read about Greek yogurt in my Cooking Light magazine so when I stumbled across it at the grocery store, I gave it a try. And I loved it! And you can't beat the nutritional bang for your buck! At about 100 calories a serving depending on which brand you buy, you get 13g of protein and 0g of fat. Usually I just buy the plain and put a little honey in it. It's been a major component of my breakfast meal. Stonyfield makes a Greek yogurt called Oikos which I have found at Walmart and Giant Eagle. My other favorite brand is Fage, but they are a bit harder to find. So Opa! for Greek yogurt and for getting back on track!

p.s If you go to Oikos' website you can get some coupons! Enjoy!

Congratulations on all your hard work and commitment! I love plain Greek yogurt-eat it everyday and we totally replaced sour creme with it. The Fage I found now at Costco in the large size for about $6.99 I think. Way cheaper than anywhere. It is so rich you feel like it is cheating but no fat and none of the extra additives either. Just pure milk. Yum
