Study club plans meet

The Modern Study Club will meet at 3:30 p.m., on March 8, in the home of Bobbi and Ron Lang, 1301 Iowa for a Public Affairs Program with Doris Moorman, Department Chairman, in charge.

The program, "Volunteerism at the West of the Pecos Museum," will be presented by Debbie Thomas, Director and Dorinda Millan, Curator.

The thought-quote for the meeting is, "The difference between a voluntary act and an involuntary one is that in the former there is a desire to attain some end." (Compton's Pictured Encyclopedia).

Name other ways to volunteer is to be the reply for roll call.

The bi-monthly project for this meeting is to contribute to the West of the Pecos Museum.

Pearl Gustafson and Iris Reddick will serve as hostesses.

Walking keeps you out of rut

If your walking routine has hit a plateau don't get discouraged. Gaining a new perspective can get you back on track.

Maurice Puyau, an exercise specialist at the USDA/ARS Children's Nutrition Research Center at Baylor College of Medicine, says the key is to refocus.

"Everyone wants to exercise to burn calories rather than exercise because that is what our body is meant to do," he added. "Try focusing more on enjoying the walk."

Whether you are a casual stroller or race walker, you will still reap the benefit of walking. It takes almost the same number of calories to walk a mile, regardless of speed. By adding an extra mile, though, a 132-pound person can burn an extra 75 calories.

"A fast walk where you can talk, but have difficulty singing, is probably the best pace," Puyau said. "Take your time, don't stress over the calories and enjoy the miles."
