Black and white numbers backgroundI saw this list of 7 Numbers That Could Save Your Life, from Yahoo Shine! and thought I’d pass it along.

  1. Exercise Minutes:  150 (per week)
  2. Blood Sugar:  A1C Less Than 5.7%
  3. Blood Pressure:  130/80 or less
  4. Target Heart Rate: 85-145
  5. Cholesterol: below 100mg/dL for LDL, above 50mg/dL for HDL
  6. BMI:  Up to 25
  7. Daily Steps: 10,000

I won’t get too picky, given the fact that they include HDL and LDL for cholesterol, so it’s really 8 key numbers, because the list is actually pretty good.  I’ll also note that if you eat a healthy diet and consistently achieve #7, you’ll likely be doing much better on all of the other numbers.  Invest in a pedometer, or a stylish Fuelband and get started.

Small steps add up!!!
