  • Be mindful of your eating habits

    One of the most common New Year’s resolutions we make is to lose weight. Eating the correct portions of nutritious foods and engaging in physical activity are two keys to successful weight loss. One way that may help you keep your portions under control is to be mindful of what you eat.

    Mindful eating means you eat slowly and enjoy your food with all your senses. When you are more mindful of what you eat, you may become more aware of when you become full, which prevents overeating.

    “I don’t think I had even one foot down on the driveway,” Lanham said. “I was in the process of getting out of the van and had my back to the passenger side when I heard the explosion. I actually looked to the front of the van to see what happened. Then I noticed the air bag on the passenger side had gone off.”

    In front of their largest non-tournament crowd, the Henry County Wildcats clawed their way out of a huge first-quarter hole to eke out a win over the Eminence Warriors
