I make resolutions ....BUT....they have to be fun ones. For example I had always wanted to learn to play the piano so I resolved to take piano lessons. I did and had fun. I don't play well but so what?
I wanted to learn to swing dance, so I took lessons. I'm not that good at it but it's fun.
I've also taken a painting class, a wood carving class and a candy making class.
I think making a resolution to do something fun makes my life more fun. And I never succeeded at the Lose weight, quit smoking type of resolutions.
My New Years resolution is to make No more Resolutions! A Resolution for 12 entire months! makes me feel sad and guilty if I fail a few or several months into the new year. Several short term plans during the year work better for me.

I don't do new Year's resolutions but I do set goals for the year. The trouble is I tend to review them at the end of January and then not until December 31st. I know I have achieved some of my goals for 2013 though. They can be about all sorts of thing - getting things done in the house, books to read, places to go, weight to lose - all sorts.
I make New Year's resolutions but hardly ever keep them. Right now, I have a lot of stressful things going on in my life, so I'm not going to be too concerned about resolutions this coming year. I will, however, be happy that the high-calorie-food season is over, so I'll use January as a jumping off point to being healthier.
Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!
Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!
Any effort is better than no effort!

I don't make resolutions, BUT do work very hard to make sure I'm in a strong exercise routine starting late Oct or early Nov. That makes me more determined to get in my workout when the resolution crowd takes over the gym for a few weeks. I'll find an alternative so I can keep working out.
