Two years ago I lost my father from complications due to years of heart related issues. Most recently, I lost my brother from a stroke. Unfortunately, my mother also has heart related health issues. Therefore, I know firsthand the importance of raising awareness about the risks of heart disease!
It is never too early to make changes for your heart health. In my earlier post I outlined great tips. In a nutshell, all it takes is change bad eating habits, begin exercising, get a physical and heart check up and make sure you are getting a blood screening from your doctor. These are all doable steps that can lead to a healthier, longer, liveable life. I am here, joining this movement to challenge you to just do it! Make the changes! Know your numbers and know your bodies. Please check out this site http://www.getfitbook.com/v/vspfiles/BYHO/redirect.htm. It’s full of helpful information, real life stories, inspiration and knowledge to knock heart disease off of its pedestal as the NUMBER 1 killer of women!
