It’s been a few weeks since you made the resolution to “eat healthier foods,” “work out more,” or even “lose 15 pounds” this year. How is that going? Approximately 64 percent of individuals who make resolutions each year have been able to keep the commitment for one month. Are you one of them? If you need a little extra help with your resolution, whatever it is, join us. Please submit your nutrition-related resolution to Karina Wittmann by Wednesday, Jan. 20, (firstname.lastname@example.org or 777-0769) and as a group we can brainstorm and discuss ways for you to really stick with your resolution this year.
