I love this cute Tee that I am wearing so much that I contacted my guest Sherrell Wallace the founder of LIVING INSIDE OUT tees! Sherrel was more than willing to share her story with me and I want to share her shirts with all of you! Check out her Facebook page Sherrell Wallace and purchase one of her comfy tees!

The mission of LIVING INSIDE OUT is to encourage Christians to share their personal stories and testimonies in their everyday life. I LOVE this! Shirts that make a positive statement to inspire others to share what God has done for them.

In the radio show exercise segment I talked a lot about our Heart Health!

You will also find in my exercise video that you can exercise wherever you are! Even while waiting in a doctors office:)

Exercising has taught me the importance of noticing how my body is feeling at all times. I have become so in tune with my body’s mechanics that I know quickly when I have a problem. It’s important for you to develop this kind of attention to your body, too, especially when it comes to your heart. Heart disease is one of the most common killers in America, and it’s something we shouldn’t take lightly.

Here are a few Heart facts to keep in mind:

  • One in three women die of heart disease each year, making it the number one killer.
  • Even though cardiovascular disease accounts for 43 percent of all female deaths, few women view it as a significant health risk.
  • Women who experience frequent symptoms related to heart disease may receive inadequate attention from health care providers compared to men because heart attack symptoms are different for women. So be persistent about getting the help you need.
  • Each year, about 88,000 women ages 45–64, and about 372,000 women ages 65 and older, have a heart attack.

Factors that increase risk for heart disease:

  • Smoking—About 21.2 million women smoke.
  • High blood pressure—33 percent of women have hypertension, which affects about 2.5 million women.
  • Overweight/Obese—62 percent of women are overweight, including those who are obese.
  • Physical inactivity—More women than men are physically inactive, with 41 percent of women engaging in no leisure physical activity and more than 60 percent not meeting the recommended amount of at least thirty minutes a day of moderate physical activity such as walking.
  • Diabetes—Nearly 7 million women have been diagnosed with diabetes and another 3 million are undiagnosed.

Tips for your heart’s health:

  • Stay physically active.
  • Stop smoking, and avoid other people’s smoke if possible.
  • Control high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol through exercise and diet.
  • Cut down on fats, saturated fats, and salt in your diet.
  • Make a commitment to reduce your weight if you are overweight.

Choose the following cardiovascular activities to keep your heart healthy:

  • a brisk walk outside or inside a shopping mall with a friend
  • take your pet for a walk
  • garden
  • swim
  • bike
  • join a group exercise class
  • walk on a treadmill or elliptical trainer
  • jog or run
