New Years Resolutions…

Well another year has passed, so I guess it’s time to write down some resolutions and goals for the new year.  Can’t seem to find last year’s resolutions online anywhere.  I wonder if I even did them?  On a total side note, I was at the Internet Archive looking for old journal pages to see if I could find a post with New Year resolutions.  And I saw the front page for one of my sites and it had a button for MySpace.  Apparently, I must of created a MySpace way back when before it got popular.  I searched MySpace, but couldn’t find myself, which I think is a good thing.
Anyway, here are some resolutions for 2008:

  1. Obviously, I need to loose 20 lbs.  I was so close this year getting down to 205 before letting myself balloon up back to 220.  If I can just loose 3 lbs a week, I could be 200 by the end of February.  I am approaching waist size 38 again and I really would like to be a size 34, so I could have an easier time finding pants (damn all of those <34 waist gay guys. I blame them for the fact that it’s hard for me to find pants).
  2. Go to the gym at least 3 times a week and do more than just aerobic stuff (i.e. Elliptical or the bike) .  Another thing that I was doing good at and then I let it die out.  If I’m going to be paying $25/month for membership, I really should use it.  And I need lift weights also, or at least use the machines if I don’t want to do free-weights (Josef laughing at me still haunts the back of my mind).
  3. No more fast food or eating out for that matter.  The “Going to a restaurant only once to eat” was not a bad idea.  I just need to stop eating out period, however.  I could save SO much money by cooking my own meals.  I will just have to fight for freezer space with the other two roommates.
  4. Find a place of my own.  I really need to find a place of my own, with no roommates.  A place where I can read, watch TV, cook, play Wii, do yoga, or knit….naked.
  5. Tear up the credit cards.  Especially the Fry’s card.  Oh man, I have been so bad with the Fry’s card.  SO BAD.
  6. Give up alcohol.  Really, so much of the trouble or difficulties that I have faced this year has involved alcohol in some way.  It might be easier just giving up the whole thing….Or at least cutting back to a drink every two weeks or a month.
  7. Do Project 365/Flickaday.  I have seen people doing this on the web, and I think that I should try to do it, just so that I can help justify my camera purchase.
  8. Travel somewhere out of the state (besides Washington to see my family.)  I really want to fly to New York to see Rent on Broadway.
  9. Organize my music collection.
  10. More blog entries….not just memes and quizzes.
  11. Continue to reconnect with my friends
  12. Give Internet dating a try….I mean really give it a try
  13. Get laid

Think that I am going to go downstairs and gorge myself on junk food before the year ends.
