Go Red Twitter Party!


A few years ago, my abuelita died of a heart attack. She had an attack a few years before but she never changed her eating habits or lifestyle. We tried to get her to be healthier but she loved to cook and eat.

I also love to cook and eat and I know that I am susceptible to heart disease because of my family background. I also am overweight, eat unhealthy and it is a miracle if I exercise.

I know that I need to make a change soon or I will be in trouble as I get older. Heart disease is not something to take lightly. And as another birthday approaches, I have made the decision that this is the year to take it seriously.

I have started this year. I know it will take a while to change all of our unhealthy eating habits, I am starting slowly. I have started watching the amount of fat I am cooking with. I have been making better choices at lunch. I have been choosing lighter meals when eating out.

I also bought more fitness Wii games and have made a pledge to exercise at least 2-3 times a week. If this also helps me lose weight, that would be a huge plus. My goal is to get healthier and get my blood pressure down.

It'll be hard because hubby is a little resistance but because he loves to eat as much as I do but I think if we do it one step at a time, we will succeed.

Luckily, there are organizations like Go Red Por Tu Corazón. This February, Go Red Por Tu Corazon invites you to Live for Your Heart and Go Red by living a healthy life to help prevent the No. 1 killer of Hispanic women – heart disease.

What better want than to join me when I co-host the "Go Red" Twitter Party with one of the Go Red for Women and Go Red Por Tu Corazon Spokeswomen, Latina on a Mission, on Wednesday, February 2, 2011, between 8 to 9:30 PM.

  2. This is a really great idea! Contests are great for spreading the word (and that always raises awareness). I just have one question for you: You said the twitter party is "February 2, 2011, between 8 to 9:30 PM." Is that EST, CST, MST, or PST? Or none of the above? Thanks!
