Seeing Red

National Wear Red day!

Why?! So we can raise awareness for heart disease. That's why! February is National Heart month too. Did you know that women die from heart disease more than the next four causes of death combined? Now that's scary. So stay fit, eat healthy, and don't smoke ladies! Here's a funny little video I found online. And for more information please visit...Go Red For Women.

Do you know the signs of a heart attack? 1. Pressure and/or pain in the center of your chest. It lasts for a few minutes and can come and go. 2. Pain on arm, leg, chest, neck, back, jaw, and/or stomach. 3. Shortness of breath, with or without chest pains. 4. Cold sweat, nausea, and lightheadedness. 5. As with men, women's most common heart attack symptom is chest pain. But we as women are likely then men to have the other symptoms, like shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and back or jaw pain. So if you are feeling any of these symptoms don't you dare wait for more than five minutes...and get yo ass to the hospital asap!
