Walk N Talk (Walk Across Texas)
With added nutrition messages in a discussion format, Educators walk with the BLT participants once a week while discussing nutrition topics, focusing on Fruits & Vegetables (accessibility, gardening, nutrients, recipes, etc.) and Healthy Drinks (hydration, flavored waters, sugary drinks, etc.). This is an eight-week series.
To keep up your new healthy habit of exercising, you can participate in Walk Across Texas. This eight-week walking program is geared for teams of eight (8) people. Teams have a friendly competition to see who can log the most miles walking, jogging, or biking. You can even dance, do aerobics, or ride a stationary bike! Everyone’s miles are recorded on the Texas map posted in a public place so everyone can see your progress. You can also enter your miles on the Web and track your progress online. The team that walks the farthest “across Texas” will win, but everyone who participates will take home a healthy habit – walking for fitness!
