Are You Living Heart Healthy?

Generally, women don’t talk much about heart attacks.

After all, it’s a man’s disease, isn’t it?

Not any more…

According to the American Heart Association:
 
1 in 3 women have some form of heart disease. 

Cardiovascular Disease is the #1 killer of women.

Some of you were my friends and/or trainees when I was a trainer at Curves in Katy, TX. Well, this week I’m going back to Curves because I know it works – I lost almost 30 lbs in 2006. So before that lost weight creeps back on, I’m getting back in the program as a trainee this time! I encourage you to find a friend and get started. It’s more fun that way!

Let’s not allow poor health to sneak up.
Let’s be proactive… together!

 

Guard your heart above all else, 
for it determines the course of your life.
