My current goal is to get back into exercising regularly and just adding more movement to my day to day life. I work nights and sleep days so it is a challenge, and I work in front of 3 monitors for a reason, I manage workloads of three teams, it is hard to step away. But I have promised myself I can get away for 10 mins. at least 3 times per shift. I also setup the Wii that helped me get in shape last time that had moved into the basement. So I use that to encourage myself to move more.

What I really need is a laptop that is powered by a treadmill, no walking, no working emoticon

I don't 'do' resolutions, but have made some goals (some are not new, just a continuation on of last years goals). I did write a blog about it: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
ur
nal_individual.asp?blog_id=5180892


Basically it's just keep on going with my weight loss goal and finish it up this year, I only have about 30 pounds left. Try to grow new veggies in my planter balcony garden, there are new hybrids I want to try for more veggies in a small space. Find more ways to incorporate my exercise into my day, clear out more clutter and finish hobbies I found lying around from 10 years ago.

An excuse is just a challenge to figure out how to do something different.

Thank all of you for sharing your goals and resolutions.

The experts say that if we set specific, easily achievable goals and make a plan for keeping them, we are likely to succeed. Sounds like that is what most of you are doing.

How can this team help you?

I have made some - but think of them as promises to myself and my daughter.... Things like get out of town for a weekend at least three times this year and book them by the end of this week so time doesn't just slip by...

Frame and hang one of the many many prints I have sitting unframed for years...

Go to yoga at least twice a week - and have booked the times into my diary now so that I can't unconsciously make other arrangements/agree to meetings etc on those days.
And cook something new and invite people over to share it at least once a month...

No New Year's resolutions for me. I prefer goal-setting because they are reality-based and not pie-in-the-sky hopes. And they are adjustable. emoticon

I wrote a blog post on Monday that seems to apply to this thread: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_pu

Fifty Shades of Bible, WooHoo!

My moment-to-moment decision-making has gone to h377. I love fresh starts. So, I'm telling myself 2013 provides an opportunity to re-think and do better.

Love your shoes, ELECTRALYTE!

I resolve to eat better, walk more, and be nicer. Every single morning.
I think if I did that just once a year I'd be a mean fat lady. emoticon

I'd say that I resolve to read the bible less, but that's not possible.

I have been working on trying not to throw away food. This mainly means produce, since we don't eat animal things, and stuff liked dried beans and grains keep "forever." I've been shopping more often, and in lower volume, and am doing well so far.

My only New Year's Resolution is to read the Bible more.






















TOTALLY JUST KIDDING.
Hope you freaked out a little, though.

I have a new long term goal. To get there, I need to refocus on the behavior and choices that I know will get me there. Maybe that's a resolution, I dunno.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

Resolving not to make resolutions? Is that like moderation in everything (including moderation) or being tolerant (even of intolerance)?

I made no new 'resolutions.' But I made goals, long-term and short-term. In some cases I juse reaffirmed them. I want to establish better habits (health/working out, time management, sleeping & waking) and work on specific tasks (work and learning, creating and crafting). That's vague, I know.

Plan for keeping them? Journals and blogs. Possibly printing a calendar that allows me to check off: (a) daily goals/tasks, (b) weekly goals, and (c) monthly goals. It keeps them concrete and holds me accountable.

I resolve not to make any New Year's resolutions, which I will inevitably fail to meet or simply ignore.

For me, weight loss, healthy living, and happiness involve daily decisions to do, or not do, something. One day at a time, as the Friends of Bill W say.

What is your approach to 2013? Are you making any resolutions? Do you have a plan for keeping them?
