Go Red for Women

Today is National Wear Red Day®. It's part of the GO RED FOR WOMEN campaign by the American Heart Association to bring awareness to heart disease in women, so I went red! Even at my Barbell Strength class this morning!

Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in America. It's given the women in my family some serious scares, (and has taken the lives of the men genetically closest to me.) "An estimated 43 million women in the U.S. are affected by heart disease, yet only one in five women believe heart disease is her greatest health threat." :-O It's scary business, but we can reduce the risk with exercise and a healthy diet. (Did y'all hear that exercise part??? Come Zumba with me!!! :-))

Go red all February long! ♥
