#BlogHerTalks HealthMinder Day at BlogHer '13
A little over one year ago I started taking my health very seriously. My cholesterol was so high that, as my doctor put it, "I was building plaque as we speak." I decided to adopt a plant-based diet and it lowered my cholesterol, but that alone wasn't enough to keep me out of the hospital last summer due to stress. My intestines were none-too-happy about the crazy schedule I was keeping.
After my hospital stay I started an intense workout regimen which has also helped me reduce stress and lower my dose of anti-anxiety medication. Did I mention that my son has congential heart disease and autism, that my daughter gets migraines, my sister has cancer, or that my mom is facing new mental and physical challenges as she nears 80 years old?
Needless to say, health and wellness play a big part in my everyday life.
What about you? Are you minding your health and that of your family or friends? Have you made, or want to make, a change to your lifestyle? Do you blog about food, fitness, or wellness?
If so, I hope you will join me and my guests Roni Noone of Just Roni and Jennipher Walters of Fit Bottomed Girls as we discuss the upcoming HealthMinder Day at BlogHer '13 and how fitness and nutrition play a role in keeping us healthy. We will also touch on self-acceptance, maintenance, and how to get started with a life-change.
Join us on Twitter for #BlogHerTalks HealthMinder Day on Tuesday, June 4th from 1-2p EDT/10-11a PDT. It will be good for you!
When she isn't tweeting, posting to LinkedIn, or pinning for the BlogHer Community of 55 million, Diane can be found blogging at Momo Fali, where she writes about her sports-fanatic husband, teen daughter and her special-needs son.
