Ok, here we go. What are everyone's resolutions for this year?

Mine are (in no particular order):

To be happy every day
To lose weight (how many years have I been saying that one)
To run in the Komen 5K for my mom (which will help with the weight loss icon_biggrin.gif )
To finally enjoy making cakes
To keep my checkbook balanced
To make more friends

Who says you have to stick to just one resolution????

We're moving soon, so I'm resolving to use the opportunity to really get (and stay icon_wink.gif)organized. I heard someone say she was resolving to give up chocolate. Why in the world would you even make that kind of resolution? icon_lol.gif

The new year is always a good inspiration for a fresh start. I always start by doing doctor visits to have all that taken care of. I think this year all I need to do is to have my moles checked.
As far as with caking and baking my plan is to test bake and get my "final recipes" for the cake flavors and fillings I would like to make (hoping for a future small part time business) and also buying a scale and convert all my recipes from volumes to weight (well at least dry ingredients).
My parenting goals are to keep my same parenting methods I am using but to step it up a little because I am noticing some behaviors in my children that I am not happy with.
I have stopped thinking of my weight I just try to stay healthy and hopefully my extra weight will come off with time. icon_smile.gif

I resolve not to make any new resolutions since I always break them anyway.

I've already met my resolution for this year- it was my goal to lose 40 pounds by my 40th birthday (next week). I lost 42, but still working on it. Want to lose about 10 more before March (bike week in Daytona). My other goals for this year:
Go back to college- start on the 12th
take a bellydancing class- starts on the 13th
Save more money (toughie- Single mom)
Spend more time with my daughter and family.
I have also been blessed in the last two months with a wonderful new man in my life- he's amazing!! So all in all, the New Year is looking great so far!! thumbs_up.gif

A number of years ago, I resolved not to make any more resolutions, since I always felt crappy when I broke them (they tended to revolve around body image issues icon_biggrin.gif ) Since then I haven't made them, and just make a general through-the-year attempt at things which seem important as I go!

HOWEVER!!! I just broke the veneer off one of my front teeth opening a packet of tea, and after spending an uncomfortable hour in the dentist's chair, I decided to make a single, late resolution: I will not use my teeth as tools! (which is already harder than I thought it would be)

Tubbs you are hilariously crazy!

I've never done a New Year's Resolution before, but this time I am.
First, to lose 20 lbs. O.M.G. I can't believe I've made a weight lost one, BUT I am at my biggest in my life...and I've NEVER been big in my entire life. So this is new to me and I'm very uncomfortable in my "new" body. Of course, I'm totally unwilling to change my eating habits! icon_wink.gif

Second, redo my cake dummies and be much more adamant about taking pics. of cakes. I have a new camera, so wish me luck! Heck, I might even set up a flicker account. icon_biggrin.gif

Have any of y'all seen the above site? I think sitting down with the SMART goals really make you sit back and think about what you want to change.

I've made resolutions before and tend to forget about them. We all do. Generally because you feel like okay so it's Jan 1st a new year and it is time to make changes in my life. I bet the sells of weight lose stuff and quit smoking items soar in January, then taper off into the year as people realise they weren't ready for it, didn't really want to or just said they would because it is expected.

Maybe we should skip new years resolution and go for because I want to resolutions.

That said this year I am changing my weight. I already started on it towards the end of last year and am detiremined this will be my year. I have a few other things I want to get done this year as well. Hopefully they all will happen. icon_smile.gif

I've decided to take a different approach to resolutions this year, instead of making ones that I can never keep I'm making some that I can cram into one afternoon and be done with them.

-To actually roll the window in the car down when I yell at stupid drivers, leaving the window up is not having the effect I want it to.

-Just once I want to block the entire aisle in the grocery store with my cart and stand in everyones way while I read the ingredients on a box of Bisquick, just to see if it's really that necessary.

-Text and drive, just to see how many people I can run off the road without knowing it. This would of course require a passenger to keep track of the near wrecks, I will be to busy LOL'ing it to pay attention myself.

I've never been one to make resolutions, but I could stand to watch less TV. It's pretty easy for me to turn into a slug, especially when it is cold and dark outside.
