Springtime and warmer weather are supposed to induce greater motivation to get outside and exercise, especially in the bitterly cold Midwest where we have to take advantage of the weather when it's bearable. As it's begun to warm up, I've ditched the treadmill and enjoyed a few comfortable outdoor runs and bike rides, but I've also been drawn to patio happy hour specials, which aren't always helpful for hopeful dieters.
So, my February diet didn't go as well as planned. My meal planning wasn't as diligent as I had hoped, resulting in more eating out and buying snacks on the road while traveling. My workout routine took a minor hit as my desire to hop on a treadmill plummeted near Week 3 of the month. But that's OK — as long as I avoid overcompensating.
Making a conscious decision to start dieting can be daunting for many people. A dieting plan too often turns into a failed attempt at living healthier, causing people to stray away from even thinking about changing their eating and exercising habits. Or, in my case, dieting can be taken to unhealthy extremes that have lasting impacts on a person's physical and mental health.

It's natural for humans to crumble when struck with unforeseen tragedies; when faced with life-changing circumstances, many respond by altering the way they approach life. Ellsworth senior Ryan McGregor didn't react the way most would have anticipated when his father unexpectedly died in the summer of 2016. In a previous interview with the Herald, McGregor said he just wanted to be treated normally by his peers after his father's death. That went for on the field and in the classroom.
