Employee Health & Wellness
Make August "Rethink your Drink" month! Consumption of sugar sweetened beverages may be the single largest driver of the obesity epidemic. Just adding one 20 ounce Mountain Dew (19.25 tsp of sugar) to your diet everyday for a year would be enough calories to cause a 30 pound weight gain. Switch to mostly water to help keep our weight from creeping up over time. Remember to follow us on Facebook and Twitter, #LUSDRevitalize. Check out below for this month’s special deals and events.
The health theme for the month of August is “Healthy weight, happy body". Forget juicing, fasting, and fad diets. Just focus on being healthy and fit. When you eat right and exercise regularly, maintaining a healthy weight can happen naturally! 3 things to remember are: fill up with fiber, make time to move, and rethink your drinks.

*Health Quote for August -
“To insure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life!"
*New Goal - every morning before starting the day sit quietly and breath for 1 minute! Then listen to your favorite music while getting ready.

* City of Roseville Mike Shellito Swimming Pool. Since Loomis Union School District has a corporate membership the cost is $199 for a year membership. That is equal to less than $20 a month but it must be paid up front all at once. With this membership you can attend any of the swimming classes, adult lap classes, or open swims. There are lap classes early in the morning, mid-day and evening. It gives you a good work out and is easy on the joints. They have nice showers and dressing rooms, too. To join, take a copy of a pay stub to the pool and fill out an application. Tell the girls at the front to give the app and pay stub to Scott. Pay your fee and you are in. The membership is offered for everyone in the district as well as immediate family members at the same price. This is an outstanding deal! http://roseville.ca.us/parks/parks_n_facilities/facilities/pools/central_park/default.asp
