One step at a time 

A New Year’s guide to fitness, food and feeling good

The Chinese proverb says that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Your Wheaton magazine editor says, when it comes to food and fitness, sometimes the hardest part is putting down the fork and putting on the sports bra to get going in the right direction.

It’s that time of year again, when we recharge ourselves (and the Fitbit) in the face of a new year and make dramatic resolutions to get in shape, eat right and change something big in our lives. (This year, we really, really mean it. No, really!) To help us all, your editor has sought advice from a few of our alumnae/i, who each have something to offer in their field of expertise in nutrition, fitness and self-care.

Read an in-depth interview with each of them below. And email us your personal advice for setting and reaching goals at quarterly@wheatoncollege.edu. We can use all the inspiration we can get.
