Fight diabetes with fitness routine

Photo Credit: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Learn how stepping up your fitness routine can improve health and reduce diabetes risk at the Diabetes Support Group Oct. 8.

Fitness — blah, blah, blah — that is all everyone talks about.

All of us at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center know how important fitness is, especially if you have diabetes or any other health concerns. The hardest part is motivating yourself to get started. Physical therapist Colleen Kimoff will speak at the Diabetes Support Group on Oct. 8, and share the benefits of getting active.

This just might be the motivation you need to get up off the couch and get active. The support group meets at 6:30 p.m. — be there, no excuses accepted.

Call the center at 503-635-3758 to register for classes, events and make lunch reservations. The LOACC is located at 505 G. Ave., Lake Oswego, Oregon 97034. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.

Here are some of the activities coming up at LOACC in the coming week:

Friday, Oct. 3

Let’s all do the chicken dance! Come enjoy a German themed lunch for Oktoberfest. Lake Bible Church will be serving chicken schnitzel, braised red cabbage and apple strudel. Remember the lyrics “We had it all just like Bogie and Bacall” by Bertie Higgins? Bertie knew how special Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall were in the 1948 hit “Key Largo.” Come see the on-screen magic at 1 p.m.

Saturday, Oct. 4

The center is open from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Todd Feinman from the Lake Oswego Public Library will speak at the 9:30 a.m. Learning Center Group meeting. Our Lady of the Lake will be serving pork roast with apricot almond sauce, rice pilaf and lemon poppy seed cake for lunch.

Every Tuesday, people walk through the lobby of the center so relaxed they can hardly finish a sentence. They’ve enjoyed a massage. The benefits of massage range from stress reduction, pain and stiffness relief to increased circulation and more. Seriously, consider doing yourself a favor and call today to make an appointment.

Wednesday, Oct. 8

Come learn about the basics of memory loss from 10 a.m. to noon. Shrimp? Yes, shrimp! For lunch the Lake Oswego Rotary Club will serve shrimp linguini Alfredo with broccoli and tapioca pudding.
