As we head into New Years Day, thousands of us will take this opportunity to establish goals for ourselves to pursue during the year. Some of them may be harder than others to accomplish but for a lot of us, the desire and intent is there, even if the willpower or skills are lacking.

I want to find a new job.
I want to do a week long kayaking trip down a river.
I want to hold hands with LF more often.

So, what are your resolutions?

My Resolutions:

- To not give in every time Teddy and Kyle demand a cookie.

- To enter in all receipts daily...not at the end of the week when I have a pile of them.

- To get more exercise because I know how good it makes me feel

- To continue watching Game of Thrones with MH because he loves it so much

- And to take my vitamins every day.

To not give in every time Teddy and Kyle demand a cookie.

yeahhhh , let me know how that works out for you DS .

I'd like to do some thinning out of things (closets, drawers, me) and maintain a more simple, mentally and environmentally, "space".

Continue the organization processes I've already started.

My resolutions are to:

-Save some money (for riding camp for my oldest this summer, a short trip for the three of us, and some emergency funds)
-Play my ukulele more often (at least 2-3 times a week).
-Improve my diet (eat breakfast at home -not in the car or after I get to work; more water, less caffeine; more fruits and veggies).

I will most likely fail by Jan 2nd with that resolution

Mine this year is to reconnect. 2013 was a sad year. Lost several people way too young, a good friend lost her children... Life is short.

So I have begun reconnecting. Some successes, some failures, but I will continue to reach out to those who are or once were important to me.

My 2014 Resolutions... These are for 2014 yes??

- Exercise a lot more than last year... which will be more than NEVER!

- Spend less time fussing at my family and just enjoy them (even with all their goofiness and quirks)

- Spend as much time as possible with my DS... he's growing up too darn fast!

- And to make better Resolutions!

I've run out of time for my 2013 New Year Resolutions.

Oh yeah change the title from 2013 now.

I resolve to learn how to walk in the incredibly awesome yet way high heels I bought myself for my birthday.

Right now I can take tiny baby steps (approximately 4) before needing to sit down.

The shoes will not defeat me!!! I will prevail!

The goal is to be able to wear them with out having to take tiny steps or looking like I have bound my feet in the ancient Chinese tradition.

I have GOT to move south. I'm just so miserable with all this cold (and it's about to get way colder and that's all I can think about). Every winter I wail about moving south. I admit that the one time the ex and I actually did it, we vastly overshot by moving to Puerto Rico. So... not quite *that* south.

Looking increasingly seriously at Edenton, NC. Wish I could pack up my IC and my dog's day care friends (human and dog) and take them with me

Would also love to make 2014 the year I turn my soaping hobby into an actual income-producing business, even if the income is very small to start.

- Start exercising (again)

- Lose a few more pounds

==Exercise more.
==Go back to making most meals at home instead of eating out so often.
==take an advanced language class, either French or German
==continue to either paint or learn something about painting every single day
==Keep on using my happiness jar
==Lose the pounds I packed on in the last 2 years!

Exercise more often
Cultivate healthy work habits (because I'm going back to work- from home- after years of being a SAHM)
Get healthier, overall
Be nicer and less judgmental (I tell ya'. I put the mental in judgmental! )

ninebark posted 1/2/2014 06:27 AM

Every year I was making foolish weight and diet resolutions that never worked out. So last year I started making challenging yet attainable resolutions.

For this year I made a list of 50 of the best Nonfiction books ever written and I am going to read them. I started this about a month ago (I knew this would take more than a year) so I just finished book five.

Last year I made a resolution to run five 5K races. I ended up running 6. It was a good resolution

TattoodChinaDoll posted 1/2/2014 07:57 AM

1) Use my Chinese Rosetta Stone everyday so I can finally hold a conversation. I can understand what my relatives are saying but I can barely speak it. But I would also be giving away my secret that I know exactly what they are talking about and they think I don't.

2) Learn how to crochet for real. I kinda know how but I really just make stuff up as I go along.

I would say lose weight but I'm so sick and tired of dieting and exercising from this past year that I'd rather resolve to eat more tasty things.

tushnurse posted 1/2/2014 12:52 PM

As many here and other IRL have said loose weight. I did this last year, and took off 20 pounds over the year, My goal is to loose another 20, and also begin exercising again.

I also want to declutter my home and get it organized. This may require my H going into therapy since he borders on being a hoarder. But I can't have his stuff take over my life. It's in every room of the house. Time to start throwing away. I just hope I don't end up in D/S because of it.

Morhurt posted 1/2/2014 13:12 PM

I resolve to be nicer to myself. I tend to be pretty judgy of Morhurt and I don't think it's healthy. I also resolve to spend more time with friends. Having so many kids allowed me to forget about myself and focus on them but I need to reconnect. I'm excited to try that one out!

Of course I'd like to say diet and exercise but really, I need to be easy on myself this year (see above) so I'm not going to.

EvenKeel posted 1/2/2014 13:38 PM

To do Kegel exercises every day.

Check back in December....I might be able to do some impressive tricks by then
