I always write down my plans/ resolutions for the upcoming year, but somehow not all of them I manage to fulfil. Around 20% of all my resolutions came to life this year. Well, I still have two more months to go, so keep on working. What about you? Do you fulfil your New Years resolutions?

Yes the new year is allmost here and the old one is still not comple. I do not think that I have completed or fullfilled all my new years resulations at all. I think maybe one or two came true. but that is it so far. sometime we do not fullfill are resulutions.

Yes, I agree with you. But the point of resolutions is to make you focused. Maybe you won't fulfill all of them, some is great too!!

Great timing for this discussion! Because just yesterday, I started to look back at my resolutions, and I admit that I haven't been keeping it. Specially the part about exercising. So, I did yesterday. I did some exercises again. Hopefully, this time it could go on until the end of the year.

oh my my sins of omission have caught up wi th me. Soleya I did not manage to completely fulfill my one and only resolution, lose sixty pounds,.But I did lose 25 pounds so maybe I can lose some more wei ght before New Years is upon us.I a m a diabetic and I really need to get down to 150, that way I can really control my blood sugar. I know that losing even 15 percent of your overweight will keep you in much better'control of your blood glucose.So I will keep right on making that one resolution and will try to do better in keeping it.

At one point in my life, I actually bothered with making New Year's Resolutions. However, I came to the same realization that many do. There is just too much chance of me not following up. I do a better job of following up things if I do not formalize them as New Year's Resolutions. Of course, what works for me, may not work for other people, but in general, that is how I go. If you wish to get technical and this might count, I do intend to keep what might be considered to be a New Year's Resolution. That is not to make a New Year's Resolution for the next year. I think I have been doing this for five years. For those who have kept them time and time again, the legit New Year's Resolutions, I really salute you. You are in the minority for sure.

I don't particularly have something like that every year. I don't even remember having one with the previous years that had already passed. I do believe that I sometimes make goals that I want to achieve each year. Most of them don't really get fulfilled but, those that do get accomplished are really worth while. I don't put them down on a list, I just have a few that I wouldn't really forget that easily. So far for this year, I still need to do a lot of work to fulfill a goal of mine. Resolutions for me are like things that I have to do to improve myself. Like changing some habits or behaviors that I deem to be lacking or needs enhancement. Even though I know that everyone does pursue self improvement, I don't fancy making a checklist about it. Perhaps its laziness but, its really relieving to realize changes on yourself when you least expect it. (^_^")

Anytime I have a new years resoloution, I fail. It usually has to do with eating healthy, but this world is filled with tasty junk food! Maybe this year I'll decide on having a resoloution I know I can commit to!
