Have you ever found yourself asking questions like, “How often do I need to exercise to keep my blood pressure at a healthy level? Is walking enough for me? What is strength training and why is it important? Why can’t I keep that extra weight off? Which diet is best for general good health?”
These are just a few of the questions that most of us have. And there are lots more. There is hardly a day that goes by without the newest “super food” or health scare in the headlines. Now you can get the latest facts about nutrition, exercise and general good health. Connie Barron, RN and certified personal trainer has spent the last eight years helping people live healthier lifestyles. She will be working with the Blanco Library to develop a series of free programs to answer these and other questions you might have. But first, we want to know what you want to know. Go to the library’s website at www.blancolib.org and tell us which programs most interest you. Get your selections in by September 21. The winning topics will be presented during the month of October.
