This picture makes me laugh. Hopefully the photo shows up well enough (it is enlargeable). One of the kids left the front door open and our indoor only cat was acting protective of her home they year the ducks arrived early.
Heart Disease and Stroke are the number 1 and number 3 killers and this event is set up to kick off fundraising, raise awareness and to get people moving.
Some of you already know I suffered a stroke when I was 37. I was not overweight, a smoker, nor did I drink. Stroke and Heart Disease can affect anyone regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, and socio-economic classes.
The American Heart Association set up a fun way to get moving. Give their Start! Walking Day page a look. The challenge for today is to get away from your desk (in my case the sofa) and move. Fairly easy. The site offers some brilliant suggestions and even a daily tracker of movement as well as a food journal. All this and so much more can be found here.
If you are able, go outside for a walk, or a series of short walks. If the weather is not cooperating, walk indoors, the point is just to get up and move. Above all enjoy the time. Walk with a family member, co-worker, friend, neighbour, or pet! I personally prefer the time alone to clear my head (yes it does occasionally clear).
