Day 9, Reason 9: Strong Bones

Osteoporosis runs in my family, and is very common in women as they age.  I'm not a huge fan of drinking my milk - really of dairy products at all.  Except for cheese of course....delicious, delicious cheese....brie....gouda....havarti....where were we?  Oh yes, bones.

One of the ways you can strengthen your bones and prevent osteoporosis is by lifting weights.  I'm not making that up, is all sciency and whatnot.  It's not just for building muscle, but for your bones too.

So for strong bones, I need to pick things up and put them down.  I'm not really liking the idea of breaking a hip, so I need to keep right on getting that strength training in.  That's a cut-and-dried reason number 9.

Day 9, Reason 9: Strong bones, no broken hips...or any other bones, hopefully
