Approaching 2012 with healthier goals, outlook

January 3, 2012

Recently, I wrote a piece on the popular New Year’s resolution to lose weight. I interviewed Elaine Schimpf, a trainer at the Oktibbeha County Wellness Connection who made some very good points about how and why this resolution often fails. This information, combined with the nagging voice in my head that’s been telling me for a while now that I need to get back in shape, sparked an idea I’d like to share with our readers. Perhaps we can even encourage a few to join us.

Michael Wardlaw, a sports writer at Starkville Daily News and I have each taken on the challenge to make healthier choices in 2012 –– not just for a few weeks or even a few months, but for the rest of the year. Our methods and ultimate goals might be different, but each of us decided that in our own ways we could live healthier lives. We decided to hold ourselves accountable to our readers while simultaneously offering our readers the opportunity to join us along this path to living longer, happier and healthier lives.
