    New Year resolutions.. what's yours?

    Thought I'd start a thread on New Year resolutions.. here are two of mine, and I intend to keep them THIS time around.

    - work out daily on the treadmill - Fridays/Saturdays with the boyfriend at the rec center, get back in shape, lose about 10 lbs that I've gained the last year.

    - cut back on Starbucks' mocha and frappachino drinks from every week to once a month
    You're the one sure thing I've found so you better stick around...

    I was just about to start a thread on this. You beat me to it. I guess great minds think alike!

    I made my one resolution. It's the same one I make every year, and I always keep it.

    My resolution is to never make a New Year's Resolution....

    Mine this year is to physically advance myself not only in weight loss, but I need more upper body strength too. I have already started working toward it. Oh, also to keep with this final college major, I don't know why I didn't see it before. I've changed my mind 50 times, but this was my original one and someone discouraged me from it because "I wouldn't make alot of money without having a PhD" well, I'm willing to get the PhD for something I love - Marine Biology. That's the last time I let someone change my mind.

    I don't normally make resolutions because I always break them in the first week of Jan. This year, however, I vow to do the following:
    • with doctor's help, wean myself off my meds by continuing my weight loss
    • be more patient with myself
    • be more patient with my Mom
    • reduce stress in my life. Although I may not be able to eliminate it, I can do things to handle it better
    • stop talking and listen more
    • take serious steps to improve my financial situation
    That's it for now. I welcome any of you to follow up with me on this in February.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    I love this! This is my kind of resolution! I can never keep a New Year Resolution, so I just don't make them.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Slick, I so hope you'll be able to reduce the stress. I know it's difficult at work, but your health is more important!

    I WILL follow up on this in February!

    Funny, I had this one: "be more patient with my Mom" on my list years ago, too - and I managed to do it!

    One I'll try to do is, stop interrupting you when you're talking.

    I didn't see your thread on serious resolutions until after I posted mine on silly ones.

    Ok, so I do have some serious resolutions
    ~ Get back to eating right and working out (walking Callie) with regularity
    ~ Eat at home (we MIGHT have a kitchen some day soon)

    Few more:

    - Be more patient towards others and with myself
    - Work on my "getting mad too fast" and get better (again, I would think that relates to being patient with myself..)
    - Manage my money more wisely, save up a good amount...
    You're the one sure thing I've found so you better stick around...

    We're so alike it's scary. My resolution has lately been to stop kidding myself about keeping resolutions.
