Dear Milton Neighbor,
I hope you are having a nice week through the rainy conditions.
Last Sunday we had a nice walk and even managed some tanning in the beautiful Spring Sun.
We have a change this Sunday and a special treat. We will walk at 6:00 pm and begin our walk at Starbucks on the corner of Bethany Bend Road and Highway 9 (Publix Shopping Center). Cogburn Woods Elementary School is holding the Annual Spring Carnival so we have moved our time to 6:00 so the folks participating in the CWE Carnival can walk.
As a special treat, Leslie and Kim at Starbucks have promised some goodies for the walkers. And, we will have water provided by Super Target.
We welcome everyone to the Milton Milers. Nobody is too old or too young. Come walk at your pace and enjoy Spring in Milton.
Milton Milers Health Tip-
Carbohydrates, also known as starches and sugars, are your body's main energy source. Complex carbohydrates include legumes, grains and starchy vegetables, such as potatoes, peas and corn. Simple carbohydrates are found mainly in fruits and milk, as well as in foods made with sugar, such as candy and other sweets.
It is recommended that you get 45 to 65 percent of your daily calories from carbohydrates. Consistent Runners and Speed Walkers need more! Based on a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet, this amounts to about 225 to 325 grams a day. Emphasize complex carbohydrates, especially from whole grains, beans and nutrient-rich fruits. Make your own trail mix and limit the refined sugars. You can include nuts and beans, seeds and dried fruits without added sugar. Limit added sugars from candy and other sweets, and stick with low-fat milk like Horizon's Organic Low-Fat or Fat Free Milk.

I hope to see you Sunday at 6:00 pm for the Milton Milers Walking Club!

Wishing you good health!
