It turned out to be a beautiful day in Schiller Park on Saturday. After our walk, we checked out the plein air artist competition in the park. Below you see plein air artist and GVWC member, Chuck Marshall, in action and then showing off his finished work along with Margi, Priscilla, Karin and Darla. Thanks go out to Jim McVay for leading the group last week.

Seven Habits for Keeping that Weight Off
Always a challenge, right? Why does it seem that some people have an easier keeping weight off than others? Check out these seven habits for keeping the weight off. It’s a terrific list. And I think the GVWC helps with Habit No. 5.
Seven Benefits of High Intensity Interval Training
Anyone else taking our burpee challenge? The challenge involves high intensity interval training (HIIT). If you’re not already, you should sprinkle other types of workouts into your walking regimen. Many of us do: Orange Theory, biking, yoga, pilates, pickup basketball games, obstacle courses, and hiking. HIIT is an especially good thing to mix in. This article from the BodyRock blog presents seven benefits of HIIT. Don’t intimidated by the bodies shown in bodyrock article. Real people also do HIIT!
Next Up in the Community – Earth Day Celebration April 22
Help us with the celebration of Earth Day at Columbus Commons on Saturday, April 22 from 1pm to 7pm. There will be music, beer, food trucks and other activities. The GVWC will have a booth at the event. We encourage members to come up and enjoy the afternoon, and also hang out in our booth to promote the Club. If you can take a 1 or 2-hour shift in the booth that day, please email me. Thanks!
