A Day Like Any Other
It’s the new year, and you probably have several resolutions you’ve set for yourself. Perhaps you are revisiting resolutions that you failed to keep in years past or perhaps they are revisions of past resolutions, stepped up to take the successes of your resolve to new heights. Now and again, one of the celebrities whose stories we run around this time of the year discloses an interesting and healthy take on New Year’s resolutions. Case in point: This issue’s cover celebrity, Kelly McGillis, star of Hollywood powerhouse films such as “Top Gun” and “Witness.” She has long given up setting and trying to keep New Year’s resolutions, opting instead to take care of challenges as they arise through the year with a determined, measured approach. It’s appropriate that McGillis appears on the cover of this January issue as she is starting over in some ways. You can read more about this down-to-earth actress here.
The new year also means winter and cold in many areas of the country, which brings its own set of challenges. If your resolution is to eat healthfully and exercise, perhaps you bemoan the winter months because the fruits and veggies you love are not as readily available. Or maybe you can’t get outside for your jog or other fat-melting exercise. This issue aims to help you keep those resolutions. You can read about myriad locally available foods in “The Locavore Lifestyle” here, and you can find indoor fitness tips in “Inside Moves,” here. And, on your way to those features, don’t forget to check out our new Skin & Beauty department here.
Now, and throughout the year, we wish you...
