My resolution is to do at least one thing a month for just me. I tend to do everything for everyone else and never do anything for me. I mean weather it is to go get a massage or a pedicure or a manicure. Just something to pamper me.

Sounds great....everyone should take a little time for themselves once in awhile, it can be a great stress buster.

Good luck with your resolution!! I know it's hard to quit smoking, but the longer you stick with it, the easier it will get. I haven't really thought about a new years resolution. I usually don't make one but maybe I will this year. Most people don't keep them so sometimes I think what's the point?? I don't know. If I think of one I'll let you know. lol.

Thanks Sarah, hope you can think of a good resolution and stay with it, it is a great feeling to make a plan and stay on it. I am hoping to finally kick my bad habits once and for all.

My boyfriend is also going to try to quit smoking for his new years resolution. So, I am going to try to give him support so he can finally kick the habit. This is probably his 50th time saying that he's going to quit, though. I hope he can actually do it this time. lol.

Have faith in him and give him support and patience, this really helps as going through the withdrawals can be very hard on the nerves and can make some people ver edgy...

New Year's Resolutions - New Year Resolutions
I have given up making New Year's resolutions because I never stick to them. Instead I make decisions/resolutions throughout the year on things that I hope to achieve within a certain time frame. These might be minor things or something rather major, but generally only make one at a time and attempt to achieve it. That way I feel much better about myself, when I have achieved what I wanted to, rather than in the past where I would end up disappointed at the end of the year when nothing I wanted had been achieved. :)

You know, that is a great idea...I don't think I have ever tried to get my goals that way, I personally always try to jump right in and hit em all at once, then I usually feel overwhelmed...I think I will definately try you way ossie...thanks for the great idea.

Give it a try wildguy and you might just find that it works. I never think that I will give up smoking for example but aim to reduce the amount I smoke by a certain time, and so on. That is what I did this year (2006) and I achieved the goal, so now I have set a time by which I will have given up. Do not set unrealistic goals, small and slow is the way to achieve what you want to. For example, you want to make say $500 from myLot during the year. Take it that you will make $125 during the first quarter and anything more than that is a bonus. :)

I hadn't really thought about it but I think Missyd has a good idea there. I spoend all my time with my kids, doing things for my kids or for my partner and hardly get any "me" time so I think that's a good idea. I'm going to set aside at least one hour of "me" time every week. Oh and I might resolve to get up a little earlier every day and make sure I have breakfast!

Good thoughts, but you should make more than 1 hour a week for yourself, and the morning breakfast is a great way to start towards your better health.

Mine is to quit smoking also and lose another 50 pounds before August. I would also like to get a reunion going on my dad's side of the family. That one might be pushing it.

I wish you all the luck with the smoking, just be carefull when you quit the weight loss will be a little harder, plan for the cravings and don't give in...the last time I quit smoking I put on 20 pounds and now I am slowly getting back into the weight lifting and dieting to take it off again..

I have three goals for 2007 To get a job with the NHS, there is a hospital near me that I would love to work for, grim determination and strong will and I will get my foot on the rung of the ladder, I intend to prove my worth. Secondly to lose another stone at the gym, I have already lost 2 stones and would love to lose one more stone. Lastly to get myself out of a trapped situation I am currently facing Good luck with quitting!

Wolfie, sounds like your gonnas have a busy year, but you can do it. Like you said strong will and determination will see you through...In my last employment change I went to see this employer 3 times once every week for 3 weeks, and finally he gave me an interview, and what got him to hire me was the fact that I was so determined to work for him, he really loved my drive to be seen and heard and that fact I wouldn't give up. So don't back down from your dream place of employment keep at them at they will see you are serious about being part of there team. Best of luck in 2007
