a fabulous idea...the beautify your heart program

Nothing is more beautiful than taking care of yourself.

And that doesn't always mean haircuts and highlights ladies...we're talking about taking care of yourself from the inside.

Being that February is Heart Health Month...yeah, we didn't know that either...Metamucil and WomenHeart have joined forces to create the Beautify Your Heart program.

It's a fabulous initiative that encourages women to get cholesterol screenings and helps them learn healthy habits for beautiful hearts.

Something everyone should do.

To support this Beautify Your Heart program, Metamucil is encouraging 100,000 women to get their cholesterol screened and donating $100,000 to WomenHeart to help fund heart disease education and patient advocacy programs.

One celeb lending their name to the cause was Desperate Housewives star and heart health advocate Brenda Strong...she was the first of 100,000 women to get screened.

What a perfect step toward a healthier New Year!

How can you get involved?

Well, visit to:

* Pledge to get a cholesterol screening
* Find a cholesterol screening location in your area
* Learn heart healthy lifestyle tips and recipes
* Enter the “Beautify Your Heart” sweepstakes for a chance to win a heart makeover getaway for you and your friends

Don't forget to make an appointment with your doctor to get the ball rolling here. While you're there, why not have your yearly physical too?

Remember, stay heart healthy's a beautiful thing.

My twin sister - co-creater of the Advice Sisters online publications 16 years ago, died suddenly of heart failure, so this topic is really close to my heart. Thank you for your informative post.
