New Year's Resolutions Thread
— Ace

Are there any improvements you want to make in your life? Do you want to spend more time reading? Or exercising? Or maybe masturbating?

Are you beating your children too much? Or not enough?

Here is a thread where you can make your vow. I'll put up a Resolutions Progress thread at the end of the month for a few months (and more sporadically after that) so that you can announce your progress and encourage other Hordelings in their vows.

Or, undermine them.

1 Boners. I plan on having more of them or fewer of them. I promise.

9 Two things: 1. LCHF like crazy. 5 lb at a time. 2. Read a minimum of 55 books this year. I use the Goodreads app and set my goal at 40 last year and blew by that easily. I don't think I will have trouble with the upped number of 55, but I have two kids under ten so sometimes personal reading time is minimal. If it looks like I will blow through 55 books, I will up the number, but 55 is the goal for right now.

10 Mr Y-not's resolution appears to be to spice things up in the old marital bedroom. He slept in his t-shirt inside out. I went to snuggle with him and the t-shirt seams were sticking out.

Ribbed for my pleasure, apparently!

Posted by: Anderson Cooper's Smoked Sausages at January 01, 2015 07:49 AM (MbqmP)

40 Or maybe masturbating? Are you beating your children too much? Or not enough? At the risk of alerting the Paedo Police, I misread that at first to say "Are you beating off your children too much?," especially in context of the sentence that precedes it. Maybe "punishing" would avoid the unintentional double-entendre.

67 Posted on my Facebook page this morning; I shared this last year and want to reprint it. If you already read it, skip, if not, I hope you are inspired to make a new resolution. Some umpteen years ago, 1998-99 actually, I was at Mom and Dad's for New Years. The guys were asleep on the couches and recliners and Mom and I were up drinking and reminiscing. Every one who knew her did the same thing. Up late drinking and talking. Remember? We got on the subject of resolutions and both agreed that losing weight, giving up something, or promising to be a better person were just not concrete enough. After much MacNaughton's, we came up with the idea that we would do a good deed every day for the next year. It could be letting someone in when there was heavy traffic, helping someone find something in the grocery store, or being kind to a telemarketer that called. No matter what it was, we agreed there had to be a point sometime during each day, for the whole year, where we would put someone else first. Mom passed away not too many months later. I have kept that resolution every day since that New Years Eve. Every single day. Each time I do that good deed, each time I think of someone else first, each time I remember to be kind, I think of Mom. Thanks Mary.

96 Wow, that is so specific, and positive-thinking Mine are more along the lines of - Don't stub my toe if I can avoid it - Don't pull any muscles trying to lift heavy weights - Try not to scream so loudly during orgasm (it bothers the neighbors) - Avoid attending anything involving the word "dance." Posted by: zombie at January 01, 2015 12:54 PM (K4YiS) Most of them are pretty reasonable, I think. I've found specificity is the key. Instead of saying, "I'm going to read more books" you say, "I'm going to read the following books this year." One of the things I picked up from my time in the Army was to make a detailed plan but keep it flexible. I probably won't hit my goals regarding the physical stuff, but I have concrete goals to shoot for and that allows me to start backwards planning. I'll probably take the riding lessons over the summer, and the dance lessons in the fall. I haven't decided if I want to take the class this semester or next. I was already going to the gym a couple times a week until classwork took over my life, but having a goal should help keep me on track.

116 My resolutions are entirely unoriginal and uninteresting. My nephew/ godson is getting married in July - I want to lose weight by the time of his wedding. The Paleo thing did not work for me - I need something more structured. I had been doing well exercise wise, but let it slip this fall, so I need to get back to doing that. Like Mandy, I also want to read more books this year.

Pills or something. Therapy is expensive and not terribly effective for men. "How do you feel?" "Scared." "And how does that make you feel?" "Scared." Etc.

123 105 zombie, how are your trees? Posted by: eman Lookin' good so far. I actually have three young fruit trees. One of them I put the mattress bag over. That seems to have worked well. One of them is small so I was able to wrap some smaller plastic sheeting around easily. That worked well too. But one of them was too big and I tried to jerry-rig a plastic covering from several pieces taped together, but the savage wind gusts pretty much shredded my efforts. So -- two out of three ain't bad. Luckily, the large tree is the oldest and thus most resistant to cold damage, so I may be OK. But it won't be until later, when they're unwrapped, and a few weeks go by, when the leaves start to show any damage. We shall see!

133 Posted by: Donna &&&&&& V. (brandishing ampersands) at January 01, 2015 01:10 PM (+XMAD) Paleo by itself didn't so much for me, either. I've had the best luck with combining primal (paleo + dairy) with low carb-high fat. So it's low carbing (like Atkins) but instead of just eating whatever has low carbs, you keep it very clean like you would if you were strict paleo. No soy, no processed junk, but stay light on the berries and stay away from honey and maple syrup. That's what I'm going back to because it's what worked for me and I just felt good when I was eating that way.

Shut up, it really was the flu, and it lasted for three days. I'm going to start lifting weights again in February. Giving the ol' back a full year post surgery before I start up again.

Pills or something. Therapy is expensive and not terribly effective for men. "How do you feel?" "Scared." "And how does that make you feel?" "Scared." Etc Not sure how you feel about prayer and faith but this works. Get a piece of paper-or several pieces- and write everything you are anxious about on the paper. Then get a box and put the paper in the box. Quietly tell God that you have tried dealing with these things but to no avail, so you are now giving these over to God with faith. Then put the box away and tell yourself that if you reopen the box it will be because you do not trust God or that you think you can handle these things better, or that you enjoy being anxious.

While this is a good thing to do, I would also check with my doctor to see if some anti-anxiety medication perhaps might be appropriate.

Also, the head ewok himself has had to deal with these sorts of problems, perhaps dropping him an e-mail might be profitable.

309 I want to read the Bible in one year - I've never done that. I want to lose 10 more pounds. I want to read a whole cycle in one year: a cycle is 6 books off my shelf that I've never read, 6 new books, and 6 books on my Nook, reading one of each simultaneously, 100 pages of each at a time. I also do an alternation deal w/ watching TV, where I read 2 paragraphs and then watch 12 lines of dialogue, or 2 sentences w/ one play if it's football.
