Walk, talk launching April 8

Everyone starts the year out with new fitness and nutrition goals, but by the middle of the year we lose sight of those.
Here is your opportunity to keep working toward your lifestyle change goals. The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is launching Walk and Talk, an eight-week program encouraging exercise and healthy eating.
The program consists of weekly nutrition tips to help participants move toward a healthier weight and includes a weekly weight check-in, weekly challenge to “stay the course,” healthy recipes and tips, exercise resources and a weight-loss planner. Weekly door prizes and incentives will be given to participants.
The series will kick off at 9 a.m. on April 8 at the Bowie Senior Center with a nutrition tip followed by a walking fitness component. The group will meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday to walk in the park.
Walk and Talk is a great free program. Bring a friend or family member, or meet a new friend here. It’s always easier to reach your goals when you have additional support. All course materials will be provided by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Montague County office.
Those with questions may call Melanie Potter, county extension agent at 894-2831 or call the senior center at 872-4500.
