Sharon's Heart-Healthy To-Do List

I used to be pretty health conscious. But since my attack, I am super-aware of doing things that are good for my heart.

Munch on more nuts, fish and veggies.

I'm always snacking on almonds, and I frequently serve salmon at dinner. Every night we have a salad as well as a steamed vegetable, to double up on the veggies.

Eat no meat and little salt.

For me, salt was a bigger sacrifice than meat. When I need a fix, I find that Mrs. Dash is a great substitute.


It's hard for me to reduce stress: My husband travels a lot, and my kids are young. But I do deep-breathing exercises regularly.

Keep moving.

When I'm exercising, music helps me to not watch the clock. My favorite workout tunes are by the Rolling Stones.

Stay motivated.

I don't need to look further than my husband and kids for inspiration. To think of not being here when they need me just breaks my heart. I'm not sure who said it, but my stay-healthy motto is "Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life."

Hi folks! I am very excited to share with you a wonderful guide that helped me quit smoking for good - I have 9 months of smoke-free now, with the help of Allen Hudson's Quit Smoking Strategy. With Allen's guidance I managed to overcome my dependency, to fight the withdrawal symptoms and any temptations. I am so happy, my family and friends are so proud of me and most importantly, I feel healthy and full of energy! All thanks to Allen and his Quit Smoking Strategy:
