Did you know that heart disease remains the #1 cause of death in the U.S. and is responsible for 1 of every 7 deaths in the country? Approximately every 40 seconds, an American will have a heart attack. I have been working on spreading the awareness of taking care of our hearts for a few years.
You can read my blog post “Go red for women fashion show” back in 2016. In 2017, I was very excited to work with a group of local women to film a very touching short video below.

#sponsor Most women know their dress size, their husband or kids’ birthdates. But far fewer women know all of the heart health numbers that could mean the difference between life and death. Health care experts recommend that every woman should know her Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Blood Sugar and BMI (Body Mass Index). It’s time to learn the most critical numbers in Your life. Your heart depends on it. I am very lucky to team up with @goredforwomen and some amazing #detroit bloggers for this video! If you care about your own health, you really need to watch it! #SizeHealthy #colorandgrace #nutrition #diet #lifestyle #lifestylemedicine #sharethelove #hearthealth #health #healthy #healthyfood #healthylife
Also a post about the importance of knowing your heart health numbers.

On the same note, I have to pass along some amazing news! February is the Heart Health Month, and Kroger is giving FREE cholesterol screenings all month long!!!❤️ I already got mine done and it only took me about 10 minutes!
All it takes is making an appointment, 12 hours fasting and then just one poke on your finger. It only took about two minutes, I saw the results right under my own eyes. Below is this cool little device they used for the test.
Knowing your numbers are the best way to keep your heart healthy! To schedule your screening appointment at your local Kroger Pharmacy, visit the Heart Health Screening Scheduler or call Kroger at (877) 444-9689 . You can also schedule an appointment online at The Little Clinic.
Are you ready to take care of your heart? ❤️Let’s all live a heart-healthy lifestyle!! 💕 We are worth it!💗💗
