    Resolutions are to

    Lose weight
    Continue to do my regular excercise

    And, since there is a thread somewhere talking about how people accumulate stuff because they haven't moved in years - that's me! I want to figure out how to clean things out without getting overwhelmed by doing a little bit every day. This is my most difficult promise to myself.

    I'm sure I should include more lofty goals too, but I will be too tired!!

    I'm getting down to my optimal weight this year, which is around 115 or so.

    I'm taking a Zumba fitness class this semester which should really help out and I've already changed my eating habits to cut out a lot of the processed foods. I do have a weakness for Starburst, so I have make sure I don't overindulge in them.

    That's all I've really got for now.

    I finally got a copy of the P90X so my goal is to finish it! I haven't started yet, am waiting for the 1st to come, but once I start I must finish.

    I want to get all A's and B's in school this year and hopefully, if it works out, I can graduate in December!

    Get a good job to work while I finish school.

    Get caught up on my financial filing ... and keep it organized

    Keep exercising

    Better time management at work.

    That's all for now ... I'm sure I'll think of more in a bit.

    Eat LESS carbs in 2011! (I had gastric bypass surgery almost three years ago, and too many carbs are a no-no, but I have been really lax about that, so it's time to get back on track!)

    I don't do New Year's Resolutions and here's why:

    http://fattyfightsback.blogspot.com/...esolution.html

    I do have some ongoing goals and at some point I'll make some goals for the triathlon season, but I want to get healed first.

    My husband started it last year, and I have to warn you, be careful of the first one, which is the push up and pull up one. He overdid it a bit, and couldn't lift his arms above shoulder height for 3 days! He hasn't had a problem with any of the other ones though.

    As for my resolutions.

    1. Go through my files and organize them!
    2. Exercise more
    3. Get pregnant (we're having difficulties, so it's not as easy as just having good timing)

    I love p90X! Great workouts for muscle building and general cross-training!

    My new year's resolution is to do ten unassisted pullups (no rest between reps) by the end of the year. I'm a girl, so unassisted pull-ups have been a challenge. I did my first unassisted pull-up about two months ago, then fell on the sidewalk and broke my wrist a few days later.
