So, here's something I'm going to admit.
I'm getting old.
Sometimes, I look in the mirror and think, "WHO is that saggy old woman?" Then, I push aside my life sized cardboard cut out of Betty White, and again, say "WOW, that did NOT use to hang that low." I then high five Betty, and pat her on her rock hard ass.
As a woman in my thirties (I seriously forgot this the other day.

Other ways you can get calcium include through leafy greens, milk, yogurt, cheese, tofu, and my personal favourite...
