New Year, New Goals

It’s New Years, time for goal setting and resolutions. Whether you are one that is revisiting last year’s resolution again or someone who has a brand new goal in mind, you need a plan to beat the odds of these goals and resolutions just becoming afterthoughts. Join the Peak Nutrition Clinic in looking at how this can be done using one of the most common resolutions: living a healthier lifestyle.

1. Decide what “you want” to change: choose a maximum of 2 things at a time.
I want to eat more fruits and veggies, I want to eat out at fast food less, I want to exercise more, I want to eat smaller portions, and I want to lose weight.

"Winifred's Letter"

Winifred Johnston Nichols is a 94 year old Beth-El Graduate. You may have seen the article "Winifred's Letter" in the last issue of the Colorado Nurse (November, December 2011, January, 2012) p. 17. And you may remember the first article about Winifred...how she and her mother raised turkeys to pay for her tuition to Beth-El, her times and travels as a Navy nurse during WWII, and travel to Vietnam with her husband later. (Colorado Nurse, December, 2009, p. 5).

Winifred now lives in assisted living in Sidney, NE. She lost her long time home in Minot, N. Dakota in the flood of June, 2011. She celebrated her 94th birthday in a Red Cross Disaster shelter.

Sending cards will be especially appreciated by Winifred. She has been making her own greeting cards from those she has received for a long time. She lost all of her old cards in the flood.

If you would like to send Winifred a card, please send to Beth-El, and we will forward the cards to Winifred:

UCCS students to get exercise prescription

A visit to the Student Health Center at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs this winter could result in a prescription unlike any ever received from a health care provider.

Instead of a physician’s note for the latest pharmaceutical-based cure, students may be referred to the campus recreation center for a free group fitness pass, gym orientation, and fitness assessment. The effort is part of an Exercise is Medicine with Altitude campaign and a campus-wide effort to improve physical activity. The campaign will feature speakers and other special events.
