Yall know...well maybe ya don't lol...red is one of my favorite colors. Anyone remember last year for Feb, I did a series "Red Lips of Love" ?? Anyhoo...in support of the awareness of heart disease; today we wear red. It's one of the leading cause of death for women and 1 in every 5 of us can be affected. The risks of high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, high cholesterol and family history can be determining factors.
As we age, u truly understand how health is wealth and to start taking diet into consideration. I know I do with previously having had the gastric sleeve (wls), my horrible eating habits had to die hard. Now that I'm in my 40's, acid reflux n heartburn plague me when I'm hard headed (dmn u spicy foods).
Wearing red on this day is a reminder for me to get my azz back on an exercise regimen. I am effective n at my best in bootcamp cuz I hate the treadmill or relying on myself. Between obesity n anticipating menopause **cue cringe** the decline in estrogen after menopause can increase the risk of heart disease. Let this day be a wake up call...
Take action and Take care of urself.
