Well, folks, we're in the home stretch! The 2014 Lauren's Hope Health Challenge is coming to a close, and it has been an incredible month around here! We are excited to share our "After" photos with you when we take them next week. If you've taken before and after shots you'd like to share, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of the day Monday, March 3, and we'll include them in our month-ending article!
Heart Health Awareness Month is almost over, and we've really been in the spirit here at Lauren's Hope Medical ID Jewelry! We've been promoting heart health all month long:
The Lauren's Hope Health Challenge is well into its third week, and things are going pretty well around here! There's been quite a bit of recipe-sharing and leftovers-swapping happening, which is a lot of fun! We've also been sharing resources, such as smaller, local meat markets and out-of-the-way health food stores with good prices. It's really great seeing everyone working toward their goals and supporting one another in the process!
Last year, we wrote about the Grant family, one of the few families in the country impacted by LEOPARD Syndrome, also called Noonan Syndrome with Multiple Lentigines (NSwML). So when Lauren’s Hope customer, Tammy Bowers, called to tell us about her newest project, a healthcare app inspired by her son who has LEOPARD Syndrome, we were pretty excited to find out that not only does she know the Grants, she’s actually met them too!
Well, we're 12 days into the first ever Lauren's Hope Health Challenge, and there's plenty to update you on! If you've joined us in the challenge, we would love for you to share an update with us in the comments below!
Those of you participating in the Lauren's Hope Health Challenge (which you can still join!) may have noticed that my biggest concern about trying the "Paleo" way of eating for February isn't the lack of bread or chocolate or even milk for my coffee. It's cooking. My "cooking" to date has been a long-standing family joke. I would invite family for holiday meals and they would not-so-subtly ask who was going to be handling the kitchen duties. My mom would come visit and offer to bring in Chinese food for dinner or suggest we all eat out. Until this month's challenge, I had basically mastered the art of taking tofu crumbles out of the freezer, adding some sauce, and microwaving them with some steamed vegetables. It's not my proudest accomplishment.
Today is National Wear Red Day! The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women initiative is celebrating the 10th year of Wear Red Day with the hope that one day, we won't need it anymore.
The first-ever Lauren's Hope Health Challenge started this past Saturday, February 1, and the big topic around the office this Monday was how we all did with our health and fitness goals over the weekend. I was excited to share some Paleo blueberry muffins I made, which were really pretty good, despite the fact that they looked nothing like the original recipe's adorably delicious-looking photo.
February is Heart Health Month, and next Friday, February 7, 2014, is National Wear Red Day. This annual observance is an opportunity to raise awareness about heart disease, specifically the fact that heart disease is the #1 killer of women.
