How's your New Years Resolution going?

41% of Americans commit to making New Year’s resolutions according to I have a few resolutions this year, and here we are in the 9th day of the New Year and I have already quit one of my resolutions. Like many, I am sure you have said to yourself and maybe even shared with family and friends what you want to accomplish in 2018. Losing weight, eating right, exercise more, spend more time with the family. Whatever your resolution(s) are, maybe the support of friends and family isn’t enough.

There are lots of places in Quincy/Hannibal that can help you accomplish your goals for 2018. The Kroc Center of Quincy and the YMCA are places that can help you get on the right track with exercising. Hy-Vee has a Nutritionist that can help you eat the right foods to be healthier.


There are plenty of family fun places to take the kids for family time. Have you tried Scotties Fun Spot, Going Bonkers, or even Aladdin’s Castle in the Quincy Mall? Some of you may want to become more active in the community. There are several groups in Quincy & Hannibal that are always looking for volunteers or members. Big Brother/Big Sister is always looking for adults to guide our youth. Quincy Noon Kiwanis, and Arts Quincy are other places you could donate your time too. For Hannibal, there is The United Way of Mark Twain Area, Hannibal Jaycees, and the Salvation Army.

I have a few resolutions this year, try to get to the gym more (fail) and to take a family vacation this year. Since my girls have been born we have not been on a true vacation. Yes, we've taken road trips to Chicago and Kansas City, but I was thinking more or Branson or even the Wisconsin Dells. Whatever your New Years Resolutions is (was), you can do it.
