What goals do you have for the new year?

Here are some of mine...
  • Continue modifying diet
  • Exercise more to increase HGH & testosterone
  • Be more positive
  • Be more patient
  • Enjoy each and every day regardless of circumstances; aka practice & express joy

I'm sure there's more but I don't want to overwhelm myself completely. Biggrin

Since I was old enough to make resolutions, I never followed most. So now at my age I only have one, to try/hope/pray to make it one more year.

My main resolutions are

1) to be more consistent with exercise (i.e. at least 4 times a week at the gym)

2) to eat more vegetables

3) To eat out less

There are certainly more but...these are the big 3.

Since I'm quite good on the diet & exercise front, it's the work/business front I'll be focused on. Not really much of a resolution though. I don't see the need to change anything about myself this year.

Well, at least nothing that isn't superficial anyway. Do want 20/20 vision and a better complexion though... Tongue

Resolutions are something I never bother with because I'll either do the right thing or I won't. If I don't do the right thing then I just try to do better the next time. That serves me well every day of every year.

My only resolution is to keep honoring the resolution I made New Years Eve 2010, which was to quit smoking after 19 years. Doing good so far, I extinguished my last cigarette at about 12:30am January 1st 2011.
Now, I need to make a resolution to loose the damn weight I gained because of quitting smoking. Tongue

Congrats. A tough habit to quit. You can get the weight off with some exercise, but even the doctors admit the added weight (for *most* people) is less a danger to your health than smoking ever was.

Byron, a huge congratulations to you. I know some who simply cannot break the habit. Keep it up and the weight will adjust itself, I'm sure. Thumbsup

Thanks guys, the first few months were the most difficult, now I rarely even think about it and cigs actually turn my stomach. My sister is a heavy smoker and just the scent on her clothes when she visits has made me nauseous a few times. I have become a HUGE gum addict though, I go through 2-3 packs of Wrigley 5 Cobalt a week. Rolleyes

I have reached the age where resolutions are of no impact to my life. I reached that point where I have accepted my life as it is.
Everyday I just tweak a bit.

I also try to steer clear of the "resolution". I prefer to use the new year to set some shorter (1 year +/-) and medium (5 year +/-) goals. The trick is recording them and tracking them periodically.

He's in Tampa; ground zero for strip clubs. The better shape you are in, the higher quality club you can work at. Confused

I think I might need some mind bleach to get rid of that mental image...

My NEW YEARS RESOLUTION is the same resolution I had when I was brought out of a 4 week long drug-induced coma following a near fatal motorcycle crash back in June: Adapt to and overcome all my injuries so that I can get back to work and get my family life back to normal.

I choose to lose weight in 2011 and since then have lost 60 lbs. I owe most of the weight drop to cycling.
