Health 104: Weight and Your Health -- Spring 2014

That's it and that's all. After yesterday's Health 104: Weight and Your Health lecture...For the 2013-14 school year I OFFICIALLY helped about 400 Clark College students, step OUTSIDE of the prepared food Box!

I'd like to thank the professors (Veronica, Kristen, Erin) who invited me to their classrooms, the Health and Physical Education department, and all the students for embracing my ideas -- you all inspire me.

I have the coolest "job" ever! I'm already looking forward to the 2014-15 school year!

A hop, skip, and a jump

I love the Pacific Northwest in all it's splendour. On Saturday, my girlfriend,  took me on a day trip to The Gorge. The drive itself is beautiful! We settled at a spot called, Rowena Crest with picnic goods we picked up at New Seasons Market. The weather was perfect, the sights were spectacular, and I was in good company. 

Then on Sunday after church, another girlfriend and I ate our lunch at Peninsula Park in the Rose Garden. There's so many wonderful spots to explore and enjoy here in the Pacific NW.  So lucky to have all this beauty just a hop, skip, and a jump away!

The Obesity Epidemic is REAL!

The evidence of an epidemic is everywhere.

overweight or obese.

· Obesity-related diseases are a $147 billion dollar
medical burden every year.

· Childhood obesity has tripled in the last thirty years
