Just wondering if anyone else has any New Year's resolutions. I'm not a big New Year's person, but I think I'm going to at least make a considerable effort to...<br><br><ul><li>get more sleep, like 7-8 hours per night</li>
<li>go to yoga class regularly</li>
<li>do more community volunteer work</li>
<li>get straight A's! (yes, I'm talking to you, AP Calculus)</li>
<li>make my lifestyle more vegan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"></li>
</ul>

I don't normally make New Year resolutions, either especially about dieting, but I have a BIG birthday coming in February and I am at least 10 pounds overweight (meaning if I lose ten pounds I will be at the high end of what's good for my height and build). I'd like to lose 15. The extra weight is affecting my mood. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br>
I already exercise 4-5 times a week. Can't kick that up any higher so I need to reduce my caloric intake.<br>
I am pretty healthy and I'm happy about that. But it would be nice to make this little change. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I like New Year's Resolutions because they help me focus and restart. I quit smoking through a New Year's Resolution!<br>
I don't always succeed in accomplishing everything on my list but I usually acommplish at least some of the list items. I try to make the resolutions measurable.<br><br>
For 2012, my resolutions are these:<br>
- Slim down by eating better and exercising more (goal = lose 10-30 pounds)<br>
- Take my athletic dog out for a run three times a week and walk both dogs everyday<br>
- Help Vegas Veg distribute at least 15,000 pieces of vegan literature<br>
- Do PPV at least 6 times in 2012<br>
- Potty train my son, teach him to count to 10, teach him left from right and the days of the week<br>
- Create better/more systems to clean our home and manage our stuff (goal = downstairs)<br>
- Go back to school

I want to start doing some kind of regular exercise in 2012. Since my knee surgery this year I have been less and less active.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Mine are still in the works, but here goes -<br><br>
1) Make meditation the priority rather than something that gets fit in when the schedule allows<br>
2) Give hubby and daughter a compliment everyday<br>
3) Less TV, more reading<br>
4) Worry less about appearances - mine or anybody else's<br>
5) Take leaps of faith<br>
6) Trust my talent<br>
7) Pause, breath, and remember that we all have challenges and blind spots

I don't think that loosing your virginity for the sake of loosing your virginity is a good idea. You're still a young person. Don't make the special first time a memory that you'd rather forget, by being intimate with someone who's not worthy of your affection. (Just some friendly advice.)

Cool! I don't think I'll ever be TV-free, but the zoning out to HGTV is very unproductive! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">
