Got a smart phone? Here are some handy applications to help you reach your 2013 goals.
So you got a smart phone for Christmas. Like you, I held out. Not wanting to succumb to those pesky data plan fees. Then one day I was planning a lunch date with a friend. She whipped out her iPhone and quipped, “Aren’t you going to get out your pencil and paper?” We had a good laugh and I won’t waste time here defending the myriad of uses for pencil and paper. I will, however, attempt to help you start the New Year off right by suggesting ways to utilize your handy new device. If we’re going to be one of those people with our heads down, eyes entranced by the screen glow of an assimilation cyborg, let’s at least click on more productive apps than Angry Birds.

About half the people who came into the Max Muscle in Woodbury on Monday said they made a New Year’s resolution to get in shape.
If you’re into making New Year’s resolutions, here’s one that’s probably made the list at one time or another: get in shape. That was reflected Monday at Max Muscle in Woodbury—about half the people who came in said they had made a resolution to get fit. “Yesterday was really busy,” Ted Dehmlow, co-owner of Max Muscle, said Tuesday afternoon. According to a USA.gov list of 13 popular New Year’s resolutions, three were related to weight loss.

Tonya Weber has made major changes in her lifestyle and is seeing big results.
Tonya Weber is tossing a 20-pound kettlebell into the air, skillfully catching it with one hand. The expression on her face reveals just how hard she is focusing on this challenging interval during a workout at Anytime Fitness on Bielenberg Drive. "That's good, that's good. Now, do six more," said trainer Callan Newton, who works with Weber three days per week. "You're just warming me up for my cardio," Weber replied, smiling but still concentrating on the image in the mirror in front of her. This is a woman who is accomplishing something she never could have done two years ago. At her heaviest, Weber weighed 385 pounds. Not only was carrying that much weight making her very unhappy, but it was causing the 37-year-old to have chronic and …

Emily Mueller began working out with a personal trainer just nine months ago. She’s now lost 100 pounds from her earlier weight of 320.

A friend she contacted to help her with a video submission, along with her chiropractor, referred her to Sara Jespersen, owner of the Anytime Fitness on Bielenberg Drive, and the rest is weight-loss history. Woodbury Patch caught up with Mueller before one of her “Look Good Naked Boot Camp” sessions on Monday. Woodbury Patch: Have you always had a problem with your weight? Emily Mueller: It probably started in junior high, just after I hit puberty. I was 16-18, size-wise. In high school I was about 30 pounds less than …
