I’m trying to help him too!  I haven’t made resolutions in years.  And I sort of think, why put it off til the first of the year when you can do it now?  I want to get back to working out next year though once I feel better.

I always keep mine! It’s pretty much the only time I set goals, because I know I’ll complete them. I put a lot of pressure on myself and feel let down and disappointed with myself if I don’t accomplish them (weird, I know), so that stubborness pushes me to follow through with them!

I never used to, but last year I started making more specific resolutions. For example, in earlier years I’d make resolutions like: lose weight or get healthy. Last years resolutions were: 

1) Do 90 minutes of cardio per week

2) Eat more vegetables and less fried foods

3) Put money into a retirement account every month

4) Organize my office

5) Pay off my credit card every month

 

I did pretty well I’d say— certainly better than usual! I was great about exercising from Jan-August, I did do better overall eating more produce and less fried food, I contributed to my IRA every month, I carried a 0 balance on my ccs all year, and I got my office organized. 🙂

I don’t usually, but in an effort to be more organized next year, I set some goals.  We’ll see in a year if I live up to them.

I kept mine last year, which was to tone up my legs… Very glad to say it paid off! I have only one day to think of a NY resolution. I think it will be to clean the house more often – Fiance is actually better than me on the house work…

Since the goal needs to be precise in order to achieve it, I will start by taking the initiative of vacuuming once a week… I already wish I had a more exciting resolution!

I don’t make resolutions.  When I made that decision it seemed that resolutions just would set me up for failure.  Instead I decided to try to go the no regrets and each day is a new day to do a little bit better route.  I still work on things like saving more and spending less or losing weight, but I don’t feel like I failed if I get a bit off track.
