    What are your New Year's resolutions for this year? Just one post with what you're setting out to do please.

    I really wanted six pack abs last year and didn't really start til June. I didn't get them last year and that's really my only goal in terms of resolutions this year. Facetious yes, but I wanna be just like all the other guys on this site!!

    Like I think I said elsewhere..... I don't do resolutions in the form of "I want A,B, & C." Instead I pick an aspect of my life to focus on for the upcoming year. Then, in the next year when I move on to another part of my life, I'll have had a year of practice, so I can continue what I've done in the last year and build on it in the new year with my new focus. Example:

    2007 = Year of finances. As of now I'm looking at being out of all debt by July.
    2008 = Year of friendships. While I wouldn't mind trying out the whole "boyfriend" thing, I realized more importantly to be a good boyfriend I have to be a good friend. So I spent the year really developing the friendships I had and tried to build new ones. I also went out on a lot more dates, which was a nice change.
    2009 = Year of fitness. First step is/was to kick the smoking for good. It's something I've always just done on & off for the last few years. Really bad habit I know, but I'm done with it. So far I'm a week into the New Year & no butts. Next step will be to work on my eating habits. I don't eat horribly, but I definitely want to fine tune some of my eating. Cut down on certain things, make sure I eat more fruits, ect. Also, the biggest step in there is my gym time. It's been pretty spotty of late (especially since I broke my wrists), and that needs to stop. I've always been active, mountain biking, hiking, ect, but if I want to get the results I dream of, I need to dedicate more time to the gym. Obviously, RJ will be a great resource for me, as well as some of my friends. I guess the closest thing I have to an actual resolution is to lose the weight gain from my wrists.
    2010 = Who knows. At least I have a year to figure it out.

    Quite biting my fingernails. Though, I'm failing as we speak!
