New year resolution

Post  Captain Dave Hawker on Mon Sep 15, 2008 11:52 pm

So in January this year I decided I wanted to put on 2 stone in weight as I was on the bottom end of healthy in the BMI scale.
I know the scale is flawed and I was very fit (ex Army-every-sport-that-got-me-a-day-off-work athlete) but I've always had the metabolism of a 14 year old schoolgirl. I also did not want to just eat myself heavier and risk heart disease and the like later on in life, so I swapped running for the gym and lifting heavy things.

January this year is on the left and yesterday is on the right, I've reached my goal and quite proud. This is the only new years resolution I have ever completed.

How did yours go?

I decided not to make a New Year's resolution this time. I do, however suffer from the same condition as you regarding the weight issue. I am 25 years old, am 5'7'' and weight about 117. I've always been really skinny and can't gain weight to save my life. Everyone always thinks I am so lucky, but after a while being called skinny sort of evokes the same emotion as some one calling some one else fat. I know i'm skinny and don't need everyone to tell me about it.

Back to the topic, I did want to read more this year but have failed so far. I just bought Steampunk, The anthology. I am going to read it but haven't started yet.

Last year I resolved to add twelve new beers to my life-list. I succeeded, but only by adding nine in December.

This year I resolved to add at least one new beer each month; it's now September and I've done nine. Smile (I skipped March and April, but I'd already done three in February, so I'll let me get away with it. This time.)

Nice tattoos, by the way. And you look far better, if I may say so without appearing to be of the lavender-water persuasion Razz
My NYR was to write a journal. So far so good Smile

Firstly I didn't choose a terribly reasonable one so its not suprising that I've failed- I decided I'd stop growing this year, however at 18 I've still managed to have a growth spirt & am about 1 or two inches taller Embarassed
My second resolution was to try & curb my sweet tooth which has had some effect, but I still indulge it to an obscene amount...

My new year's resolution has thusfar been fulfilled. Of course, given the simplicity thereof, and the frequency with which I swear it, one would assume I've mastered fulfilling it by this point. My resolution was not to make any....

Post  The Juxt on Thu Sep 25, 2008 12:28 pm

my resolution for this year was to drink more. it may not seem like a terribly sensible or important resolution, but due to not drinking often for a couple of years my tolerance for alcohol diminished to that of a five year old, and i would get extremely drunk on a large wild turkey. so for my own safety and for the desire to remember any occasion that i might go to the pub, i've been trying to build up my tolerance levels. (let me emphasise that this is a desire to enjoy a drink and not get drunk, rather than me wanting to go out and get wasted)

it worked partially, i can now handle 2 large drinks Laughing

my other resolution for this year was to get a real 9-5 regular job... that hasn't been accomplished so far Wink

and good for you then. I know I was never fully satisfied with my work and play schedule until I started working overnight...It's amazing what you have time to work on and do when everyone else is asleep. And most of the time they even pay you a little more for it!

i do not make new years resolutions. however i did make a resolution on my birthday August 7th. after a year of bad luck i decided my life was in a shambles and i wanted to get it fixed. so i made the following promises to my self:
1 i would loose 25 lbs worth of fat on my body (lost 6 thus far)
2 our home would be "green" by the end of the year. ie buy organic when and where i can all lights will (and have been) converted over to compact holligen or florcent we use only reusable cloth grocery bags and all of our cleaning prducts have been converted over to enviromentally friendsly products.
3 i would take up a stress reducing practice such as meditation or yoga.

thus far i am half way through my goals. im still working on finding a yoga routin i like.

Mine was to finally enter the 21st Century. I'm partway there...I actually sent my first ever text message sometime last weekend. I'll say that is not all it is cracked up to be, but at least I know how to do it.

Of course, it doesn't help that I still find it necessary to understand absolutely everything about all the new technology I'm using, so it takes up a lot of my time.

I heartily agree. I have worked the graveshift for three years altogether, with a couple years of unemployment. I adore it, and dread the day when I will be forced to return to diurnal habits (The whole children and family thing will overtake me in a couple of years, I am sure. . . )

I do my homework, sew, crochet, surf the aetherweb, and read on my shift, and my employer still loves me because my work gets done and well. I love hotel work.
