Did you make any New Years resolutions and are you sticking by them if you did?

I didn't make any....but have made a point of changing a few things....like I am trying to get rid of the five pounds I gained over Christmas....I am organizing my craft room and I am marking my snowman collection to be sold this summer....but I didn't really make a resolution.....I just took the beginning of the new year to start out fresh with some things. Did you make a resolution? With half of Jan. gone....are you still sticking with them?

Hiya Jill, Really have´nt had much time to think about Resolutions as such I tend to make them all year round anyway. What´s your Snowman Collection look like I mean I know that they are snowmen but how have you made them? Sorry to be so nosey. Nosey Rosey that´s me just kidding actually I´m quite the opposite to that. I just keep on trying to see my way through each Day the best way I can I think that is my best resolution that way it makes it easier for me to get things done that I want to do like saving yes I´m still saving.

Hiya Jill, Well it does´nt matter if you made them or not that´s a lot of Snowmen yes indeed. Don´t blame you for selling the ones you don´t like that´s smart thinking there.

Naw, didn't do any resolutions this year. Organizing the craft room sounds interesting though, I need to do that myself. What kind of snowmen do you have? Is it snowmen you made? Got a picture?

Ohhh, now I see the picture, haha. That's alot of snowmen, but they are so cute, aren't they? I love snowmen too. My girlfriend gave me one that is suppose to be a marshmallow snowman, and he's cooking marshmallows over a tiny fire, because I like camping so much. It's simply adorable.

Hi jill. Nope, I didn't make any New Year's resolutions this year. Heck, I didn't make any the year before either. As it is I don't even remember when I made any last. LOL It's been a while, I suppose. Making New Year's resolutions just isn't my thing. I'd hate to disappoint if I couldn't keep 'em all. So, instead I make none. It's worked out great for me so far! LOL Happy mylotting!

Hey jill! I did have a few things that I wanted to get done, but didn't exactly make resolutions and it's a good thing! I haven't done anything so far! I am not starting this year off with a whole bunch of ambition! I keep saying "I will start tomorrow"! I am the Queen of Procrastination" as it is! I get the urge to do things in the middle of the night when I can't sleep! But, the things I need to do will make noise and my boyfriend has to get up to go to work so I can't disturb him! I am a "night owl" and he is an "early bird" so we are on totally opposite schedules all the time! So it is really difficult for me to get things done when I'm really ready to do them!

I hear you on that one! Sometimes I get a burst of energy too when it's too late to start something!

No I did not really make any serious resolutions. I did start a weight loss plan back in October that I want to stick to, and so far I'm doing well with that. I want to be a better mom and wife, but that will be a lifelong goal that I'll constantly have to work towards. I also told myself I wanted to quit smoking, but so far have not even really tried. I have to wait for the right time, and now isn't the right time.

I had lost 50 lbs. in 2009 so my new years resolution was to maintain my weight and keep off those extra pounds. It has been really hard considering I'm not as stressed out and unhappy as I was this past summer and also I was walking two hours a day everyday in the summer and I can't do that right now it is way too cold out. I had bought a game for the wii "just dance" hoping it would give me the excersice as walking did, but I don't play it that often....need to just get off my butt. Plus when I'm walking I love looking around at everything. The game I just stand in my living room looking at the tv.Not much to see. It is fun just doesnt give me the motivation I need I guess. Hopfully spring and summer will come soon so I can start walking again!

Hi there jillhill! I did not make any resolutions for 2010. I think I did not make any last year either. I don't think I am really good at this. I have been making resolutions in the past and I did not stick to any. I have not accomplished any of the resolutions I have had in the past. Oh well....

I didn't make any New Years resolutions either. I mean well and start out on the right foot but then always fall back. My theory is there is no point in making them, failing and then feeling disgusted with myself. I do need to get rid of some clutter and haven't started on that just yet. I have one room that looks like a tornado went through it and tossed things all over. I can always close that door to hide it but then will forget I need to clean it all out. Think that is an age related thingy..lol
