What Are Your New Year's Resolutions? Topic

Hi everyone! I thought it might be fun to have a forum thread on what our New Year's Resolutions are for 2012. This is a popular topic on our Facebook page, so let's have a list here too!

I'll start. For 2012, I am going to perform 2 sets (8-10 reps/set) of chest press (40 lb start) and 2 sets of back row (50 lb start), 3 times per week, for the next 6 months.

Mine is to take a cooking class. I've always loved cooking and thought a class on the basics would be good and maybe lead to me taking it further.

Last year I made resolutions to stop smoking, stop drinking (excessively) and to lose weight.
Having kept these resolutions going from last year, this years additional resolution is to lose my last 20lbs of body fat and get toned up..!!
I stopped losing weight since my birthday, so am gonna attempt a bit of low carb / carb cycling to see if what I've been reading about fat loss on this regimen actually works..!!

I really don't want to call mine a New Year's resolution because it seems like you don't complete them, but anyway, my resolution is to tone my body and lose more inches off my waist. I have already lost almost 10" so far, I'm hoping by the end of May I have lost 10 more pounds and at least 5 more inches off my waist..."staying motivated" is my 2012 motto!

I love the idea of taking a cooking class! Good for you, Esra_Oz!

Mine aren't really resolutions but the new year is motivation for me to:

Continue losing weight
Stick to my budget and spend less money at the grocery store.
Get more done sooner. (I'm a procrastinator)

Mine is to stay motivated and not give up on my weekly workouts. And to go to the gym at least 4 days a week.

Getting help to lose weight and to keep motivated.

I want to continue to think positively about my body while staying motivated to lose 20lbs by March and 20 more by September. I know to be successful in the grand scheme of things I need to change my heart and mind so that after I've built up a body I'm proud of and can really experience life in I can keep it.

Thanks for sharing these, everyone. Let's hear some more. They don't have to be "resolutions" per se - perhaps a renewed focus or new goals.
