I'll be the first to admit that I probably won't accomplish all of these resolutions, but they make a good set of goals. If I attain 3 of the 5 I'll consider 2007 to be a big success compared to 2006. I deliberately did not include losing weight as a goal. I find that I don't do well when I focus on losing weight, but I do better if I focus on the activities (#3 & #4) that will likely lead to weight loss. So that's where I'm putting my focus: eating in a healthy way (eating when hungry, eating nutritious foods) and exercising regularly.
Do you make resolutions at the new year? Do you seriously try to keep them or just kind of think of them as things you know you won't achieve? See the new poll in the sidebar.
