NILES – Being healthier is a common New Year's resolution for Niles area residents.
Starting a workout routine is top on the list of goals for 2007 for Buchanan resident, Vince Bosch.
"Although weight has never been a problem for me, working out and eating healthy makes me feel better and gives me more energy," Bosch said.
He hopes to stick to his resolution, but it is just so easy to forget about it and get back into the old routine.
Kat Davis of Dowagiac plans to work out more as well, she said.
"I would like to work out at least a half hour a day," Davis said.
Eating healthier is another goal she would like to accomplish. She would like to quit smoking, but she knows that she would never be able to stick to it.
On New Year's Eve Joey Armadillo's had a full house of people there to celebrate the New Year. The bowling alley offered an "all you can bowl" session from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. with shoe rental and a buffet of hot appetizers included for $20 a person or $30 a couple, General Manager Brett Godsey said.
This is the third year Joey Armadillo's has had the New Year's celebration. The alley fills up pretty fast, with people making lane reservations months in advance, Godsey said.
Even people on the lanes are looking to be healthier in 2007. Lacie Linstrom wants to lose weight and Rob Saroni would like to stay healthy.
A lot of area residents agree to just not have a resolution this year, by doing this people avoid not accomplishing their goals.
