New Year, New You: Diet & Fitness

My New Year's Resolution List usually starts with the desire to lose between ten and three thousand pounds.
~Nia Vardalos

The New Year rings in, and the average person's resolutions tend to include getting in better shape, whether that means losing weight or working out or some combination of the two.. Well, there are a lot of diet and fitness books out there, and here at abcreads we can't claim any grand nutritional or exercise knowledge apart from "eat right and exercise" and "don't start a new exercise program without checking with your doctor" as recommendations.  However, here are some of the newest items from the library catalog for your perusal!
