For example, a Lifesteps Weight Management class was offered at Delaware Valley Hospital in Walton. Those in attendance shared ideas and experiences to help each other along in their fitness goals.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County also offers classes such as Eat Smart, where people can learn how to eat better on a budget, and Garden to Table, where parents of pre-schoolers and toddlers can find out how to plant, maintain and use a garden for a better diet for the entire family.
Getting healthier can — and should — be a family activity. Getting the kids involved in planning and planting a garden will give them a sense of ownership and could help them want to eat their vegetables. And once the snow melts, go on a nature walk or a bike ride around the neighborhood.
Don’t let winter weigh you down anymore. Take that first step toward fitness.
