I missed the boat.
This post was written to be published in October (specifically around the Seattle Heart Walk)....
Oops. Welcome to my life!
It is something different from my normal post"ings" yet something I have grown more and more passionately about.
This post is about women's heart health.
After all we first must take care of ourselves before we can take care of others. Right?
As a mother speaking I don't usually follow this rule but sitting her without giving it much thought I think DUH? The problem is our actions in one moment (repeated over and over) can = an un-happy heart.
Lets think about this differently...
You are getting ready to take off on an airplane and even the flight attendants before you fly remind you to put your air mask on before helping your children with theirs.
Its going to be no surprise when I say to you that we try very hard to make sure that Mason and Kendall grow up eating GOOD foods. I mean its gotten to the point where Mason thinks watermelon is dessert.
So now its time to look at what I eat. I don't eat horrible but man I would be in much better shape if I would follow the rules I lay out for my children.
I have also seen how UGLY heart disease is and under NO circumstance do I want to face that battle. So living with a boy who has half of a heart I thought I could take a page out of his "diets" book and apply it to us women....
So together we can keep our hearts healthy and free from disease....
