Hello WHUR Family,

Let’s focus on your family!
Women make 70% to 90% of a family’s health care decisions. Here are some ways to make health a family matter.

Improve your health literacy. Read about your health and the health of your loved ones. Share your new knowledge.

Anticipate your family’s health needs. Develop a wellness plan for each family member.

Exercise together. Get the whole family moving to improve and maintain their health.

Help your family eat well. The entire family can benefit from a healthy eating plan.

Help your love ones make wise health choices. Support your loved one’s efforts to quit smoking and avoid drugs and alcohol.

Choose safety. Prevent injuries and errors by taking safety precautions in all your family’s activities.

Help your family create balance. Help your loved ones identify sources of stress and work to minimize them.

To Make your Cardiovascular Exercise More Enjoyable and Effective – Choose An Activity That You Like.

Remember your goal is to become Fit and Fabulous. So, work with what you have and all happening right here.

– Meet Me In The Kitchen –

This year, when your social schedule fills up for the holidays, your waistline and hips doesn’t have to.


During the holiday season, you will attend holiday parties and several festive events – and they will all have food, good food. If we add a little stress with no time to cook or go to the gym. We have a recipe for holiday weight gain. Well, not this year! And Here’s why:

Sip – With alcohol, the goal is to keep both your calories and your buzz under control.
Walk around the room and meet people – Don’t plant yourself next to the buffet or snack table.  

Limit yourself – to the number of hors d’oeuvres you consume. Try to stick with your favorite 2 or 3 hors d’ oeuvres that you really like and pass on the fried fare.
And Pack Snacks – if you’re working late or before you hit the party enjoy your light snack. This will make other snacks easier to resist and you want arrive to the party hungry.
