How many resolutions have you broken already in the MMP?

I do not make New Year’s resolutions, because I know better. You say “I’m going to eat healthier this year” then on the 3rd, you have a donut, and there goes the 362 remaining days. :smiley:

But if you made any resolutions, how many endure past the first week?

Considering that Monday’s always the day we start stuff - maybe today you intend to make that life change? Do tell.

I really would like to make an effort to walk the circuit in the neighborhood more often. It’s about a mile and a quarter, and if I could do that 3 or 4 times a week, I’d consider it a win. Of course, with the temps forecast to plummet this week, I’m guessing it won’t happen, but I may give it a shot anyway.

But it’s not a resolution. I don’t do that.

Happy Moanday!

No resolutions here. However, my students will be setting new goals today. Mine will be related to walking more.

Maybe I can resolve to have a voice? I don’t have much of one, it shall be interesting.

I don’t make resolutions just because I know it’s more of a week one to-do list and then it’s all downhill from there. I’ve been off my normal healthy eating plan for the last couple of weeks so all I’m doing is getting back on track again, it’s a return to normality rather than a resolution.

There are a lot of things I’d “like” to do, but they’re not really practical and especially not now with mum still in the horsepistol and us not being able to plan much until we know what’s happening with her.

Other than that, normal is good :slight_smile:

Good Mornin’ Y’all! Up and caffienatin’. YAWN ‘Tis 42 Amurrkin out with a predicted high of 56 and sunny for the day. Definitely cooler than the past week. Gonna get even colder this week accordin’ to the weather PTB.

I don’t do resolutions either. Partly cause what’s the point and partly because I’m a curmudgeon.

BooFae hope mum is doin’ better and can go home soonest.

Ok, that’s all I got. I need more caffeine and rumbly tummy demands sustenance. Then, alack and alas, 'tis Moanday so irk purtification must commence.

Happy Moanday Y’all!

I resolved to not make any resolutions.

For this week’s opening shot(s) of random observations:
[li]The sure sign of spring: we are not yet two full weeks into winter, and I’ve received 2 different seed catalogs to date.[/li]
Yesterday was rather blustery. I went to the gas station and waited for a pump behind a lady who was rather nice looking, but definitely NOT model material. She had blond hair to the middle of her back, and was having a hard time controlling it. I stuck my head out the window and told her she needs to shoot a glamor commercial with all that hair blowing around. It made her day.[/ul]

I just hung a load of shirts and socks on the lines, and I’ve got a load of jeans to go out next. With luck, when I need to do laundry again, it’ll be back above freezing. We shall see.

Glory hallelujah the cold has returned! Thank you bitter wind!

One of my unofficial resolutions is to clear off the UFO shelf. I’m working on cutting up the last of the t-shirts Oldest Sister gave me last Christmas and I need to finish the cross-stitch picture for Irish Storyteller. Then I need to finish up the granny squares I was making and do something with them.

I’m debating whether or not I want to go on a trip to Wally World and use some of my gift card.

Not sure how this works. I sent a friend request to someone I haven’t seen in eons. Then I looked at his page - holy crap on a cracker - soooooooooooooo much right-wing idiocy! I promise when I knew him, he was a nice, normal person, but had he been then the way he is now, I never would have spoken with him. Anyway, I canceled the request. I’m assuming he’ll never see that I sent the request. At least I hope so.

But if he does friend me, I’ll just not follow what he posts. Life’s too short to be subjected to crazies voluntarily.

I never said any of them out loud, so it doesn’t count that they’ve already been broken.
The Asshat[sup]TM[/sup] was in my dream last night and we were happy together, so I woke up all pissed off and grumpy, in addition to my daily blurfage.

I never bother with resolutions that can be ‘broken’ as such- mine are basically to have a clear out (today’s plan), start an allotment blog (done) and post on it, rather than keep records on random notebooks that I then lose, and get a professional-ish wardrobe, such that if I do manage to get a decent job, I’m not showing up looking like a mess (I hates clothes shopping).

Nothing really has a time limit, aside from a vague ‘make a start by the end of January’.

Last year’s was ‘learn to pass juggle by the end of summer’. With a sufficiently flexible definition of ‘summer’, and a fairly low standard of ‘juggle’ I think I made it :wink:

I have made a single New Year’s Resolution for many years, which is “To Make No New Year’s Resolutions”.
It has served me well enough. :slight_smile:

By making it, you have already broken it.

My resolutions are to practice gratitude and forgiveness. Certain people (nobody here!) have done me wrong and I want to move past that. Plus I have so much to be thankful for.

It was 2 below zero this morning. Welcome winter. There was already 20 inches of snow on the ground this time last year. Today there is maybe one inch.

Up, caffeinated, off to work this afternoon. I don’t make resolutions, because why should I want to be less awesome?

Happy New Year, folks!

My New Year’s resolution is to procrastinate less. It truly is the thing that screws up my life the most.

I’ve already partaken of blow.

And killed a hooker.

This year same as last apparently.

But that is the point, My Dear. :slight_smile:

Neither are you above repeating the same line used in posting #5. :rolleyes:

But have you shot a man in Reno yet?

And welcome to the MMP!

The only actual thing I’ve planned to do this year, self-improvement-wise, is to continue to conquer my alcohol problem by staying away from alcohol.

Eating better and getting more in shape would be nice, too, I guess.

Been staying inside lately because it’s really icy outside and I’m afraid of falling. I already had a bad fall about a year ago, smashing my head and bruising my ribs and getting a really bad knee-skinning that I still have a scar from. Though that fall didn’t involve ice at all, I don’t want to take chances.

I’ll have to continue the job search soon.
