Stuck in a diet or fitness rut? Well, we've come up with something to help get you out of your slump: The Hometown Wellness Showdown.

We're pairing up with local company Lose It! and the YMCAs from across the region to bring you a four-week wellness challenge in September that we hope will help you change or improve your diet and exercise habits.

Keep your eye on for more information on how you can sign up. You can register for the challenge from Sept. 7 to 16, and then it officially kicks off Sept. 17. During the course of the challenge, you can earn a chance to win prizes by logging your exercise and healthy meals. And, your points count toward your community’s total, too, which will be tracked as well.

As you participate in the challenge, we will provide you with key tips, tricks, and advice from experts to help improve your well-being. Visit this blog and our Get Moving section for more information.

So, watch this space. We will let you know as soon as registration begins. What do you have to lose (other than pounds)?

Staying fit is an important part of staying healthy. This blog will offer exercise tips from experts as well as share the personal journeys of Globe staff members committed to fitness. No matter your age or energy level, we invite you to join in and share your own story. How do you find time to work out? What are your daily challenges? Let us know and read along -- and together, we can all get moving.
