New Year's resolutions?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to go on an intense 6 day split gym programme to get rid of my gut.

Gonna form a new band.

Try to take more drugs and get laid more.

What about you lot? Or do you not believe in that sort of thing? Ever succeeded in keeping any?

Aimed to get fit this year and ended up entering the Loch Ness Marathon. I'm now fitter than I've ever been.

Aiming to lose the gut this year and get back into running again (as I've not done any proper running apart from football since the marathon in October)

I set some goals for the year but didn't really meet them due to other things getting in the way. Moving house threw any plans I had out the window this year.

So my goals next year are broadly similar to my goals last year:

Stay dedicated to training - Would like to do a sub 50 mins 10k at Balmoral in April and be a blue tag in Taekwondo at the end of the year (blue belt would be better but I don't think I'll manage that without seriously upping my game and sacrificing other things).

Play more music - Be it with 1864 or getting my other project up and running properly. Now I'm settled again I need to pick up the guitars and get writing.

Climb more hills - Did a couple of small ones this year and want to pick this up again next year and do a lot more.

Stay healthy - Really enjoying not drinking quite as much as I used to (but still enjoying quality booze), being fit, eating good food and making the most of my weekends instead of being hungover for most of them. Everything seems to be nicely balanced at the moment and long may that continue into next year.

The basics like more sex, staying fit, earning more money, yadda yadda.

But if I could be generally more positive about things this year, that'd be a good resolution.

Continue the great form Bonesaw has been on and get a heap more gigs together.

Get Ablach back upto speed and start writing and grinding album no.2.

Develop my vocals and train for new techniques.

Dedicate more spare time on writing lyrics for Bonesaw and maybe get into writing lyrics for Ablach.

Lose the gut I have gained since I moved into town.Aswell as have a more consistant regime for my weights and general fitness.

Cut out wasting my free weekends getting pissed.

I would quite like to get a new band on the go in the new year as i will have quite a bit more time on my hands.

That's about it though as i'm pretty happy otherwise.

I too am training for the Balmoral 10k like Chris, since moving into I've been out running twice, my lungs can't handle the cold though so it's on hold, but I'm going to have to bare with it if I'm going to manage a 10k.

More and more cook things myself, i like cooking but going to try make sauces myself and such like.

Try save a little money each month for something nice:) i'm getting a good bit for my birthday my gran has been saving since i was born, so that should benefit nicely to start me off.

Get my ass to the gym on a regular basis as opposed to this ad-hoc ''missing a month is fine'' routine I seem to be in.

Maintain this 'sensible' thing I'm doing with money.

Write a bajillion poems for my folio.

Get published more.

Figure out what I'm doing/where I'm going in my year out.

I aim to die quietly in a corner somewhere, without getting on anyone's tits. :up:

Quite right - I imagine dying on someone's tits would be traumatic for them!

To be much less of a bastard. Actually, that's bullshit. Being a bastard is great.

For real:-

- Lose a bit of weight.

- Write more and submit a short story for publication. Get rejected a lot, no doubt.

- Meet the great Shola Ameobi.
