January the 1st, 2017. It's that time again where we promise ourselves that THIS year we will rise to do something healthy, empowering or life-changing. The first day of a new year is a perfect time for starting something new, right? The thing is, about 30 days from now is usually where we fall and abandon our grandiose resolution.
BMI, Body Mass Index, is the most commonly used method for classifying individual weight categories related to health risks; however, don't stop there!
Listen up, because this month we're going to have a talk. In the age of information, there are too many people saying things about health and fitness.

Being neglected, exploited or abused is unfortunately a reality for one in 10 older adults. For every case reported, 23 are not.
Every month, we address a health and fitness issue from a management or prevention standpoint. We plan our healthy meals. We plan time in our day to exercise. Most of us are planners.
