This weekend many of us will be looking back to the past year and looking forward to 2012. We’ll reflect on the changes we want/need to make and resolve do things like eat better, move more, and live well.
As you lay out your resolutions, take note that a new program launched by The Cooper Institute (CI) in January 2012 will help you follow through with your changes.

Based on the concept that small changes can lead to big results over time and that every day is a chance to change, Today I Will will inspire you to make choices that will lead to better health in 2012.

We all know we need to consume fewer calories and more healthy, whole foods and spend more time being physically active. The real challenge is doing it… and keeping it up.
