With Valentine's Day around the corner, now is the time to focus on the health of your heart! This month, we'll be focused on small, sustainable goals that will lead to a heart-healthy lifestyle -- whether you have heart problems, or just want to head off any future problems, now is the time!

Our goals for February are pretty straightforward -- and can be tracked in a weekly blog or in the discussion section, whichever will work better for you! Here are our goals:

1. Track all foods and beverages every day for the month of February;
2. Try (and hopefully share!) ONE heart-healthy recipe per week;
3. Do one thing that's good for your heart per day; and
4. Do at least 30 minutes of heart-healthy cardio three times per week.

For a heart-healthy diet, I recommend tracking not just calories and fat, but also saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. If you need help adding those nutrients to your tracker, just let me know and I'll guide you through the process.

Sparkpeople has put together a monthly calendar that will give you wonderful tips on how to take care of your ticker. You can find the calendar here:

You can ask questions, share recipes and tips, and update us all on your progress on the discussion threads. If you would like to have a heart buddy this month, please let me know and I'll do my best to match you up with someone!

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.
