The Weather Has Been Beautiful! Go Outside And Exercise!

FullSizeRenderWe would like to congratulate Yuldina for winning 2 coupons for free items at the Originals School Store!  Yulinda took a picture of herself cutting an apple after she watched the knife skills video on the Cooking In Connections Website.  She then posted her picture to her my life account.  Yup, that’s right, all you have to do is follow the posted videos and you too can win a coupon for a free item.  Brand new items at the school store this week!  Get them before they sell out!  We have extended our offer of a free item for taking pictures of your knife cooking skills until April 15!

Did you know that the Center for Disease Control recommends that you get at least 150 minutes of aerobic exercise per week?  You don’t have to do 150 minutes all at once… just exercise 3 times a day for 10 minutes at a time.  What is aerobic exercise you ask?  Aerobic exercise (also called cardio) is anything that can make your heart beat faster or make you breath heavier.  It could be going on a brisk walk, walking up stairs, riding your bike, dancing, etc.  We have had some very nice days in Eugene… get outside and have some fun!  For more information join the Over The Hills and Through The Woods on Monday at 12:30 pm and/or Couch To 5K on Wednesdays at 1:30 pm.  The Center for Disease Control also has a fantastic website:  Put down that controller and get outside!

If you attend Couch To 5K… remember your challenge is to complete Week 2 Workouts 1 and 3 on your own.  Week 2 workouts consists of a Brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternating 90 seconds of jogging and two minutes of walking for 20 minutes.  Please update goal guide after you complete your workout!
