    OKAY, guys i know its a bit early. But what are your resolutions for 2008, THINGS YOU KNOW YOU WILL ACTUALLY COMPLETE.

    Mine are to have a rocking , hard defined body by summer. and to establish my brand boysandco.com, and last but not least find someone who wants to commit to a ltr with me. Oh and move out of state.icon_wink.gif

    I wondered when a thread like this would show up...LOL

    How many of us chuckle about those who make New Years Resolutions (regarding the gym), then fade by February.

    I think if one has goals...and have created a system of steps to reach that goal.. that makes sense to me.
    To blankly make a resolution doesn't. No doubt I'll have some goals I'll be focusing on in 2008.

    For Boysandco, the website sound interesting.. how do you plan to achieve the body you want?.. And on the LTR, are you talking about moving out of state....or requiring someone to move to you? Just curious.

    I'm just going with the same as last years...which lasted till about the end of September...fell off due to a break up, that won't happen this year.
    So
    #1 Bulk up / gain weight
    #2 No Coffee
    #3 No Weed (OK well maybe a little)
    #4 Discipline Discipline Discipline (for the Gym)
    work out at home threw the cold months and hit hard at the gym when it warms up.
    Oh yea and #5...make sure work is for supplementing my life and not living to work.... Play first work second.
    Wish me luck...Happy Holidays Jocks

    No plans to start anything new, but just to continue...

    ...to build stregth and skill in the gym and sports.

    ...on my spiritual journey to understand myself and the world around me just a little better each day.

    ...to gain financial strength to survive through the constraints of capitalism.

    My 2008 resolution:

    To be beatified by June, and canonized by November.
    Since I'm Jewish, don't let anyone tell you that I back off from a challenge!

    Mine is simple: Try to be a little better next year than I was this one.

    Ugh, guys, you're killing me! I haven't even sent out Holiday cards or finished my shopping yet!!!

    But, I agree with Rocco. NYRs seem arbitrary to me. And they're about as successful as resolutions I make other times of the year.

    Play hard enough to be one of the handful of homos in this world to get man-of-the-match on a straight team.

    But this entails a whole slew of underlying resolutions: improve conditioning, strengthen core, reduce the gut a little, improve sleep patterns, commit to hydrating every day, etc.

    WELL maybe i do have one... even though i think they are silly.

    I just got a job at Lifetime Fitness in Columbus teaching a dance based cardio class... SSSSOOOO... i will try and take all the NYR people in my classes and at the gym when i'm there to work out, in stride. I will take a deep breath and wish them the will power to stick with a healthier way of life, and i will try to provide motivation, excitement, and results.

    We'll see... icon_twisted.gif

    I, also, am going with Rocco's statement. I don't do New Year's resolutions. I don't really view the new year as being necessarily any different than the previous one just because the calendar ticked up a year. I like to make short and long term goals that aren't really dependent on a certain year.

    This past year I've actually kept several, so 2008 will be a continuation of a few of this years.

    So...

    1. Continue to live a healthy lifestyle. Lose 15 more pounds. (This year was to lose 40 pounds, I lost 70))

    2. Since I will be in Iraq come February, ...not to get shot comes to mind.

    3. Drink many frozen margaritas in January. (again, since I will be in Iraq come February)

    Those three will do for now...icon_biggrin.gif
