Maintaining a Healthy Heart
We BGs always find the time to take care of others, but oftentimes neglect ourselves when it comes to health. For example, statistics show that African-American women are at a greater threat of death from heart disease than women of other races. This dismal stat can be reversed if we take better care of our hearts. That's why it's imperative that we take control of our cardiovascular health.
It is recommended that we do some form of cardio 3-5 days a week for 30 minutes.
Whether power-walking, biking or rock-climbing, incorporating some type of cardio in our weekly routine is essential to maintaining good health.
Not only does doing cardio exercises get our blood pumping, it also helps shed unwanted pounds.
So if you want to fit into that itsy bitsy bikini this season - go out and get moving!
What's your cardio workout of choice? Please share!
