Beech: Navigating the Holidays Without Gaining Weight
Published 12/15/2010 in Podcasts
For this edition of Talk of the Town, sponsored by Patrick Dugan's Coffee House, The Telegram features an edited version of the December Knowledge at Noon program "Tiny Tastes, Big Calories at Holiday Time," with Linda Beech, Finney County Extension agent. The program was on how to enjoy the holidays without packing on the pounds.
A few examples of the tips you'll hear from the podcast:
- Keep up with your exercise program.
- Only go once through a buffet.
- Carry healthy snacks with you if you're traveling or out shopping.
- Get enough sleep - 7 to 9 hours a night.
The next Knowledge at Noon program is 12:05 to 12:55 Jan. 6 at the Finney County Public Library, 605 E. Walnut St. The speaker will be LaDonna Sauer from the St. Catherine Sleep Disorder Center talking about the Sleep Disorder Center, sleep disorder testing and services available.
Other Knowledge at Noon programs are Feb. 3 "Spruce up with specialty painting techniques" with a representative from J&M Paint and Wallcovering; March 3 is "Gardening for success in southwest Kansas" with Shirley Buller; and April 7 is "Beautiful nails, beautiful hands."
All sessions are over the noon hour at the library, except the April session, which is at the USD 457 Educational Support Center, 1205 Fleming St. Participants can bring lunch to eat during the program. Coffee and tea are provided.
