Eat less. Move more.

Perhaps you’re like millions of other Americans who have made the New Year’s resolution to “lose some weight.” Maybe you got one of these new fitness-tracking devices over the holidays to help you stay on goal:

Moov Now

So many choices - did you choose your own wearable device or let your gift-giver decide? All of them track your steps, some monitor your heart rate, others are water-proof, and still others measure the intensity of your workouts. Phew – it’s tiring just thinking about it.  These gadgets are awesome – they fulfill our insatiable desire for instant and constant feedback. 

Eat less. Move more. That’s the best advice we have heard for losing weight. Simple, right? Well, if you’re like most of those other millions you need more than your new Fitbit to help achieve your goals.

We can help. Our generous donors have given us:

Cookbooks filled with recipes for cooking light/healthy
Exercise books to put a little variety in your routine.
Inspirational books to keep you motivated
Entertaining books to use as rewards for keeping up with your resolutions

Come on in and take a look around – we’re sure you’ll find something. And the added bonus? You’ll get in some of your recommended steps for the day – your Fitbit will be pleased. 

But wait - maybe you are one of the lucky few who have been able to resist junk food and maintain a healthy diet even DURING the holidays. Maybe you hate chocolate and maybe you still fit into your high school jeans. Perhaps one of your resolutions is to read more. 

If you’re a Goodreads or LibraryThing fan you have probably already established a new goal for 2018. We assume that you made your goal for 2017 – exceeded it, in fact. Woohoo! Congratulations! Maybe your 2017 goal was too easy or maybe it was a stretch goal but you did it.  Either way, you’ve been basking in the glow of your achievement and suddenly realize that you had better get going on your 2018 goal. We’ve got books for you, too.
