Truth or dare??

Let's start with truth....the truth is, writing this blog is way out of my comfort zone. It feels like you are jumping up and down saying "look at me," and like you are bragging. Who wants to be the center of attention when you are physically at your worst, when your BMI indicates you are obese, you are on 3 different high blood pressure meds and a cholesterol medication, and you are in denial about the size of clothing that you wear? But the truth is, this blog, really has nothing to do with me. Its about saving lives and bringing attention to womens heart health. I am just one example of the many women that haven't made the best choices in their daily lives. So I will put myself out there, with my insecurities and all, and I will blog!

Now, since I have put myself out there, I am going to ask something of you...here comes the "dare!" I dare you to find out your numbers....your BMI, your cholesterol level, your blood pressure, your weight. I dare you to find out where you stand in your heart health. Believe me, I know...I know its easier to walk past the scale and not weigh yourself...ignorance is bliss, but it can also kill you! I encourage you to have a face to face with your doctor to discuss your heart health. If you aren't ready for that, most pharmacies have free blood pressure monitors that you can check your BP at, so you could start there! Take baby steps if you have to! Don't forget, you can do the challenge right along with the seven of us, with the online version, just click the link below to register. " https://www.goredforwomen.org/Registration.aspx"

Love your ♥!
