Kickoff breakfast.....GO RED!

We had a great kickoff breakfast yesterday at St. Vincent Heart Center! The official start is Monday the 9th, but we are getting things rolling! I met my 6 fellow challengers who are committed to making their health a priority. I was blown away by the amount of people at the kickoff, people that are there for us to give guidance and support. People were there from the American Heart Association, Staff from St. Vincent Heart Center, previous Go Red BetterU Challengers, i could go on and on! I can tell you, they didn't just show up to make an appearance....they believe in this heart and soul! I feel so fortunate and blessed to be given this opportunity.

I am learning so much already. Did you know that 80% of cardiac events in women are linked to poor choices, involving diet, exercise and smoking? The numbers are staggering...but the good news is that we can do something about this! Lets all love our hearts and commit ourselves to making better choices. Are you ready to get started yourself? You can take the 12 week challenge too online, just go to "https://www.goredforwomen.org/Registration.aspx". There are some great tools that you will also find to help you out. If you sign up, leave a comment and let me know, I want to hear of your progress too!

Love your ♥!
