Sadly, friends and family members are part of these statistics. I am trying not to be.
For the 3rd year in a row I will be participating in the 2009 Start! San Diego Heart Walk on September 19, 2009.
I know I am not my ideal weight. I know I don't eat perfectly balanced meals. I know I don't exercise enough.
It is time to change.
I have already cut back on my caffeine by switching from coffee to tea (part of my new year's resolution). Since I moved in with my parents my meals have become more balanced and I have cut back on my chocolate intake. I have started acupuncture to help reduce my stress. And, this week I will begin walking 3 miles every day.
I plan on featuring a survival story and an update on my progress every week until the walk to help inspire you to think and act healthier. My goal this year is to raise $500 for American Heart Association. Please help me beat my goal by clicking here to donate and help spread the word.
