Happy New Year everyone! January 1 sets into motion a flurry of New Year's Resolutions. What is the most common resolution you ask? It is almost always some form of getting healthy... eating better, losing weight, or getting to the gym. January is the month where fitness equipment goes to the front of the store, gym memberships skyrocket, the gym is packed with people, talk shows feature a host of celebrities and everyday people who have lost weight and library books on exercise and health fly off the shelves. In celebration of these resolutions, I thought I would give you my picks for healthy living.
I have to admit, I am an avid watcher of the Biggest Loser. I am especailly pumped for the return of Jillian Michaels this season and the show's efforts to tackle childhood obesity. So, if you are a fan of the show, the library has got you covered! There are a plenty of Biggest Loser cookbooks, DVDs and biographies from past contestants (if you need a little motivation). And of course, Jillian has a number of exercise DVDs and books out there for every fitness level. After the birth of my son, I used her 30 Day Shred video to get back in shape. I loved it because there were 3 different fitness levels and it was only 30 minutes long! Perfect for the busy person.
Good luck to all those who have embarked on a New Year's Resolution! Feel free to leave us updates on how you are doing.
