In keeping with the American Heart Association Heart Month theme, I want to talk more about your heart health and why getting your heart rate up is important. Did you know that just like the other muscles in your body, your heart is a muscle and needs exercising, too. And also, just like your other muscles will atrophy when not used, your heart muscle will atrophy as well.
You know we Southerners say the phrase Bless Your Heart to cover many different meanings. It’s an understood language amongst us southern women and no matter how we may use it in a sentence, whomever we’re talking to understands its meaning perfectly. We say it when we feel sad for someone who’s going through a difficult time, ‘bless your heart’. We say it when someone is sick and not feeling well, ‘bless your heart’. We say it when we discover that a friend’s husband has been cheating on her, ‘bless her heart’. And of course we say it when we hear Aunt So ‘n So or Cousin So ‘n So say or do something really strange and we love them anyway, ‘bless their heart’.
