I had a very busy week starting with me participating in the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Connect Event and ended with me attending the First Lady Michelle Obama's First Anniversary Event of the Let's Move campaign to fight obesity.
During the month of February, the American Heart Association is doing their Go Red for Women campaign which teaches women how to keep their hearts healthy. I had a lot of fun demonstrating how to make AB&J Sushi Rolls which are a great heart healthy snack; recipe is on my site. Did you know obesity actually increases your risk of heart disease?
The Let's Move campaign helps communities in America get motivated to live healthier. The First Lady talked about achievements in the past year, and all she hoped to happen in coming years. It was very inspirational and I was so excited! It was amazing to hear about the accomplishments that happened this past year. I can't wait to see what happens in 2011!
An easy way to keep your heart healthy is to do cardio. Cardio exercises are great because they exercise your heart. Jumping jacks and riding a bike are some simple exercises. What’s your favorite cardio exercise? Send me a Tweet @TheLizzieMarie.
On February 14th I’m doing an event with the C.H.O.I.C.E.S group: 'Center Helping Obesity in Children End Successfully' in Atlanta. Details are coming soon to our site so be on the lookout!
I hope I’ve motivated you to keep your heart healthy. Be sure to watch a Kindness Challenge update on the Rachael Ray show on Feb 18th. Click this link to find the air time on your local station: http://www.rachaelrayshow.com/show-info/showtimes/
