With National Wear Red Day, to promote heart disease awareness, right around the corner it's time for all of us to stand up and make a commitment to living healthier life styles.
So, what's the first step? It's time for The Miss Black Ohio Weekly Nutrition Challenge! How does it work? Every week will be a new challenge, we'll start simple and hopefully build up completely new habits that will help us all eat smart and be heart healthy.
This weeks challenge is VERY simple. This is something that we should all already be doing, but since I know our lives are busy and we often forget to take care of our bodies we'll start here. What's the challenge? EAT FRUIT. The challenge this week is to eat AT LEAST one piece of fruit very day this week. My fruit of choice will be apples. You know what they say, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away!"
The question is... are you up to the challenge?
It's my personal goal to not only support heart health, and to work hard to be heart healthy, but to find away to really encourage those around me be heart healthy too. Come with me on this challenge, one step at a time. Let's get healthy together :)
Remember: Starting tomorrow, FRUIT FRUIT FRUIT everyday!
