Next Sunday is my birthday! I’m throwing myself a party—to celebrate another year here. My party is all about saying YES!
YES! After fully recuperating from surgery, I’m walking again. I include several intervals of 2-3 minute “power bursts,” to burn a few more calories and pamper my heart.
YES! I’m eating more oatmeal, because it tastes good and because it’s good for my heart. A touch of cinnamon makes it even better and helps keep my LDL cholesterol in check.
YES! I’m drinking my 8-10 glasses of water every day. When I have my occasional cup of coffee, I can hear my sister, Vera, whisper in my ear as she flashes her lovely smile—“OK, Glo, add one glass of water for every cuppa Joe.” She’s one of the most fit women on the planet, so I listen and drink up.
YES! I’m coming up on my 57th birthday. Just a few weeks before his 57th, my father passed away from cancer of colon, liver, and pancreas. So I celebrate this year as a tribute to my dad, Earnest McEwen, Jr., and to myself–for beating the odds. YES!
Say YES to taking excellent care of yourself. You’re the only one who can.
Pass It On!
