If you are like most Americans, you eat one-third of your calories away from home.
New year's resolutions are a great way for us to re-evaluate ourselves and decide where there is room for improvement in our lives. So when you ring in this new year, make resolutions that will count. Make them positive, make them real, and stick to them. Here are three tips to get started: 1. Be realistic. Make sure the goals you set are not only attainable, but healthy too. For weight loss, goals should be based on losing no more than 1-2 pounds per week. 2. Ask others for help. Having someone join you in making a change can make it seem easier. They hold you accountable and provide a support system. Choose someone who is also motivated so they can help encourage you on your hard days. 3. Take charge of your environment. Surround yourself with people, places, and things that will foster the changes you are seeking. Avoid tempting situations whenever possible. However, develop strategies ahead of time to handle these situations, as they will likely arise at some point. Tips courtesy of the Kendall Anderson Nutrition Center.

The UniverCity Urban Lab -- an organization based in Fort Collins that advocates for high-quality urban design and a livable city through community involvement and collaboration -- is seeking input and guidance from the public as it shapes guidelines for a design competition to be launched early in 2015. It's holding an open house on Friday, Dec. 5, to collect that input. Centered on the Mason Street transportation corridor, the competition will invite professional designers, students and others from around the world to propose improvements to the Mason Street Downtown Corridor, excluding the railroad right-of-way, that will enhance vehicle safety and the pedestrian environment. The goal of the competition is to inspire design possibilities that create a unique and memorable experience for those who visit the area. The Urban Lab wishes to solicit feedback from the public on the proposed format of the competition as well as the specific requirements that competitors should prioritize. Possible topics include pedestrian and vehicular safety, sidewalk enhancement and public art. Feedback can be provided at the lab's second annual open house event scheduled for 5-9 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 5 at the former John Atencio Jewelry space at 1 Old Town Square in Fort Collins, during the First Friday Art Walk. A feedback message board will also be available online at urbanlab.colostate.edu. All interested community members are encouraged to attend and become involved in the initiative. About Urban Lab The UniverCity Urban Lab is a catalyst organization dedicated to transforming the urban environment by convening private, public and academic partnerships to cultivate innovative change.
