Twice a year, we get motivated to start fresh. January inspires promises to get diets in order, lose weight, get in shape and make other self improvements. But by summer, many of us have lost track of those goals and are back at square one. Then the start of a new school year rolls around. The itch for positive change resurfaces—especially for those of us with kids.
