Dance Your Health Out

Christiana Care hosted women from across New Castle County, Del., for an evening designed to inspire attendees to improve their health through exercise and smart nutrition choices.

Combining dance, fun and education, the first ever Dance Your Health Out event, held at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, provided free Zumba instruction, healthy food preparation demonstrations and health screenings to more than 200 women.

Attendees took part in a 50-minute Zumba workout led by instructor Davi Mozie that had them dancing, clapping and moving to the music. Zumba combines Latin and international rhythms with a fun, aerobics-style workout. The group included women of all ages—from teenagers to a woman in her 90s—with varying movement abilities, including “newbies” and skilled dancers.

Christiana Care employee Cindy Noble was one of the more experienced dancers in attendance, having lost 47 pounds in the past year thanks to Zumba and an improved diet. She was impressed by the number of first-time dancers at Dance Your Health Out.

“Every time I would turn around just to see what was going on in the room, I was amazed at the volume of people who were there dancing and into it,” Noble said. “People kept coming onto the floor, and they weren’t intimidated.”

“I think the group was exceptionally energetic,” commented Mozie. “When we got started I really didn’t think they would be able to last. We ended up going 10 minutes longer than we had planned because the group just didn’t want to stop. It was great.”

Others took advantage of the free health screenings available throughout the evening. Staff from Christiana Care’s Imaging Services and Center for Heart & Vascular Health assessed attendees’ risk for bone and heart disease, while members of Christiana Care’s Department of Family & Community Medicine calculated body-mass index and provided body-fat analyses.

Following Zumba, Jenn Barr, with Christiana Care’s Center for Community Health, conducted a healthy-cooking demonstration. Attendees sampled low-calorie dinner options provided by caterer Food for Thought and learned about the importance of nutrition in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

A post-event survey of attendees offered insight about the effectiveness of the inaugural event. More than 97 percent of respondents said they were motivated to eat healthier and increase their physical activity.

The event was a collaboration of several departments within Christiana Care, including: Women’s Health Services; the Center for Heart & Vascular Health; Family & Community Medicine, Center for Community Health; Food and Nutrition Services; Imaging Services; Preventive Medicine & Rehabilitation Institute’s Food & Nutrition Services; Employee Health; and Volunteer Services.

Day 144 of 365 – Barbecue

In breaking with my horror and demented character theme of the last two days here is a picture of a yummy burger about to come off the barbecue grill. We ate over at my parents house today and they cooked on the grill. It was quite delicious.

219/366 – Project 366 2008 – August 6, 2008 ~

Hubby and I made raisin bread this morning in our bread machine. The bread plate is a ceramic plate I made back in 1982. ~

Recipe:

Raisin Bread

1 cup less 1 tablespoon warm water — (110 degrees)
1 1/2 tablespoons lard
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1/2 cup raisins
2 3/4 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Place ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order suggested by the
machine’s manufacture. Select the Basic or White Bread setting. There is
no need to select Fruit Bread setting, nor to add the raisins in later.
Start the machine.

After first knead, bread should be smooth, elastic, and dry to touch.
Adjust if necessary with additional flour.

After baking, remove pan immediately. Rest for 10 minutes in the pan.
Remove bread from the pan, and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before
serving.

Icing is 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and 1 teaspoon water mixed together and drizzled over it while warm.

This recipe yields a 1 1/2 pound loaf.

ENJOY!!!

My good friend of 30 years Lynn Baxter and now Flickr Contact phoned this evening,
www.flickr.com/photos/lynnbaxter/
she told me she still cooks a recipe that I gave her along time ago and I had since forgotten about, I had the ingredients to hand and I was trying to make my mind up what to eat so I decided to go back in time.

Ingredients:
Bacon (or Sausage)
½ tin tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic
Pepper to taste

Method:
Fry the bacon in a frying pan while at the same time bring the tomatoes to the boil in a sauce pan. When the bacon is cooked (or even just before it reaches that stage) transfer to the sauce pan along with any fat and juices that are in the frying pan, add the garlic, simmer until it is reduced then add water and keep on reducing, repeat this reducing process slowly simmering for about an hour. I have experimented with a little thyme or mixed herbs but its best kept simple.

Serve as a sandwich on crusty bread, and enjoy cleaning the pan with a piece of dry bread.
