My mom forwarded me an email the other day with a link to a video for the GO RED for women campaign. It’s about knowing the signs of a heart attack and being ready to help someone else or even help yourself. Because it really could be you, while working out, while shopping at Anthro (it’s hard to tell the difference sometimes between excitement over new arrivals and a heart attack, right?! ), or while brushing your teeth.
I thought it was going to be one of those scare-tactic videos that turn me off to the message.
And it’s seriously entertaining. Take 2 minutes and watch it, if you haven’t seen it already.
I had to laugh hysterically at the last bit, “2 minutes?! Could you make it 10?!” Said while looking around at her messy house…that was totally me, a year and a half ago….in hard labor with Mr. Banks, waiting for the midwife to arrive. I was like, wait a minute, the house is a wreck! While MacGyver still slept, I’d pick up one or two things, get down on all fours and breathe through a contraction, get back up and rush around for a minute, drop down again, repeat, until I couldn’t get up anymore, and I had to crawl to the tub….sometimes women are crazy!!
I’m loving the new Novelty Collar Tee I picked up last week. The print is so fun, with black/white/and splashes of blue. Hot pink just felt so right here.
Take care of your Anthro-loving hearts, ladies and know the signs of a heart attack.
