Our meeting on Monday 18th April was the first with new President Helen Snowball.
The Speaker was Roz Chandler from ‘Glow Fit’ who spoke on topics related to healthy eating and fitness.
She updated us with the latest thinking in the Health and Fitness industry. Whereas the main focus used to be on a low fat diet, now the main concern is the amount of refined sugar in what we eat. She advised us to be aware of this when buying processed food, ready meals and some drinks.
As we are all probably aware, a diet which includes plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables is a key to staying healthy.
Roz also showed us some dance-based exercises which she encouraged us to join in, which most of us did with varying degrees of success. This provoked much laughter and that in itself is supposed to be good for our well being.
Atworth WI meets on the 3rd Monday of the month at 7.30pm at Atworth Village Hall. New members are given a warm welcome.
