Heart Disease chooses itsclientele indiscriminately. It doesnot matter what color of the rain-bow your skin is, if you are maleor female, your age or what partof the world you come from. Itlooks at all of us without preju-dice. If you give heart disease achance you could become one of its clients
you have the abil-ity to STOP it before it starts orhave a great amount of control if you have been told you have heartdisease. Heart disease kills morepeople each year than all cancerscombined.
We all have only one heartand keeping it healthy shouldbe one of our main goalsthroughout the year.
We canlive without many of the otherparts of our body because we haveduplicates such as two eyes, twokidneys, two legs, two arms. Youare probably thinking, “Well whatabout the brain- we only have oneof them”. Yes that is true but theheart pumps blood and oxygen tothe brain to keep it alive so thebottom line is we cannot livewithout our hearts pumping well.Our heart weighs about 9-12ounces (weight of a full pop can)and is about the size of our hand.The heart works ceaselessly,beating 100,000 times a day, 40million times a year–in totalclocking up three billion heart-beats over an average lifetime. Itkeeps the body freshly suppliedwith oxygen and nutrients, whileclearing away harmful wastematter.Keeping our heart healthy isan everyday challenge. Poor dietand little to no exercise can putour health in jeopardy. Makingbetter choices in our diet such aseating an apple or orange insteadof a candy bar or bag of chips canmake a difference. Impulse buy-ing of convenience or fast foodsthat are often high calorie andhigh salt items can get us in trou-ble by increasing our risk of:weight gain, increased choles-terol, high blood pressure, dia-betes and heart disease.If carefully chosen, snacks canfill nutritional gaps and boost en-ergy without causing weight-gainor other health worries. Here aresome tips for heart healthy snack-ing:1. Drinking a glass of water be-fore grabbing a snack can helpcurb your appetite and also helpskeep you hydrated. We lose about2 liters of fluid a day through nat-ural processes but many peopledo not replace this fluid and be-come chronically dehydrated. De-hydration can lead to daytimefatigue, unable to concentrate,headaches and muscle weakness.2. Plan your snack ahead of time so you do not just grab any-thing. If you want finger food,check out the fruit and vegetableisles at the grocery store or graba granola bar, cheese, nuts, pret-zels or trail mix for healthy op-tions.3. Be aware of portion size,don’t fall victim to portion distor-tion. Check the nutrition label tosee how many servings are in thecontainer. Many snacks havemore than one serving in thepackage.4. Avoid using snacks as a com-fort when stressed or upset. Trygoing for a walk or doing someother physical activity instead.5. Avoid all day nibbling. Limitsnacks to every 3-4 hours.6. Watch the kinds of carbohy-drates you eat. Carbohydratesfrom sugars and sweets providequick energy followed by an en-ergy crash. Look for items likenuts, seeds and beans for longlasting energy.7. If you just have to have somechips or cookies, choose the lowerfat, lower sodium varieties andeat them in moderation.8. Be a smart shopper. Don’t besuckered by "low-fat" and "all nat-ural" claims. An "all natural"product may be filled with sugar,which is in fact a natural ingredi-ent. "Low-fat" products often have just as many calories as their full-fat counterparts. Read the nutri-tion label before buying to seewhat you are really getting.9. When in doubt about whatto do go back up to tip numberone.Keeping our hearts healthyshould be one of the top prioritiesin our lives.

The list is endless of how we in-dividually recall our fathers. Eventhe same memories can seem torun the gamut from smotheringand vicarious to keeping an aloof distance. A curious combination of words can fly us back to ouryounger years, because that washow dad used to say those words. A scent, be it of car oil, pipe to-bacco or an aftershave, can putDad right in front of us. The waythe water blindingly reflects thesun through the reeds, the three-toned car rumbling by on theroad, the worn easy chair at ayard sale, all make the eye blinkand we see Dad. The heat of a car-pet burn from roughhousing inthe living room, the slime of grease from a old engine, a dustyand gritty coat of dirt reminiscentof the ball park, all are touches of Dad.Remember being spanked? Orwas the disappointment in Dad’seyes over your behavior a farworse punishment? Was it alaugh and a challenging “Oh,yeah?” or a quiet aging behind theeyes when you first called him“Old man?” As a son, did you re-ally have “the talk” about girlswith him? As a daughter, did yourfirst few dates actually face thetraditional inquisition with himwhen the young men picked youup? Was it an unspoken truththat Dad could actually do thedishes if Mom asked or she had tobe gone for a few days?“Daddy, Daddy, don’t let go of the bike!” And he had already letgo and was trying to not gasp forair while jogging alongside.It was not Mom’s place, butwas Dad’s duty to break the newsto you about your childhood dog. At the time, only Mom thought tosuspect that while Dad was dig-ging the final resting place, hewas crying, too.One day you found Dad’s walletstill on his dresser, and a photo of you was in it. Those silly picturesof you from grade school are hid-den away in the albums, butguess who has them memorized?Mom finally breaks down andtakes some of your art work off of the refrigerator, and, mysteri-ously, someone puts them backup. Mom may be the one whophoned repeatedly to check on youwhen they were gone that firsttime overnight, but you couldhear her reporting to him as if hehad insisted on the calls. You maybe 75, but Dad still calls you kid.Who taught you the differencebetween a regular and Phillipsscrewdriver? Who didn’t caremuch for Monopoly, but once pres-sured into playing could beat youevery time? You get up for a drinkof water, and who is still staringat the TV, and its a sob storymovie?He may be almost perfect inyour eyes, but it is Dad who al-ways wants his kids to do betterthan he did. It’s one thing to seeMom holding her newborn grand-child, it’s another to see Dad doingthe same thing. Everybody tellsstories, but whose are listened tomore intently because those sto-ries are of events seldom spokenof? It’s unsettling that, the olderyou get, the smarter your Dadwas. And we who hold dear suchmemories of our fathers in theseand so many other ways, we sayback to them, “I love you, too,Dad.”
In so many ways ...
