Not sure if this has already been posted. But what are your New Years resolutions. I'll lead off. Mine is to do the impossible: Be more awesome.
fair point that
Practice detachment. The hoops season is giving me a head start.
Work out some more
Stop drinking so much. I have a feeling detaching myself from sports would help.
Switch to higher alcohol content drinks, will reduce the volume a great deal and you can feel like you stuck to your resolution... and still blunt the pain of our recent struggles.
My New Year's resolution is that I am not cutting my hair again until Michigan wins a Big Ten title in Basketball or Football...
Of course my resolution last year was to not have physical pain due to losses because it just isnt that important...wasnt able to follow through on that one.
Oh, wait...that's not the resolution you meant, is it.
Make my new years resolution last more than a 6 days.
Going after what I want, aka being more ballsy (ballsier?)
On my new ASUS Gaming laptop: I resolve to have this paid off by the end of the year. Also, I want to lose some weight; I'd like to get to 215 by February 24 which is the date the missus and I are going on a cruise. I also resolve to create more resolutions as the year progresses.
Saw this on the google. Practical advice on actually keeping resolutions...
I am overweight and damned sick of it. I need to drop about 40 lbs. I will do this. I will, goddamnit.
1) Lose some weight
2) Finish the Michael Crichton books i have not yet read.
1.) Good for you. Me too.
Quit sniffing glue....
You picked the wrong year to stop sniffing glue. (With the economy and all...)
Who are going to work out and lose weight: I HOPE YOU SUCCEED and I SUPPORT YOU!
I've never had a weight problem. Fast metabolism. But last year I did notice my gut gathering that cootage cheese look and sticking out more.
I started going to the gym twice a day. Weights in the morning and treadmill in the evening. Now, I didn't make it twice every day, and walked outside a lot. But I stuck with it through the summer.
The secret? I gave up pop. I've never been a snacker--sometimes if I want a snack, I go to the store and buy some Oreos--eat a row and then the kids find thm and that's it for me.
But I went to bed hungry ALOT. I did everything you supposed to: smaller meals, more of them, water, cut out the refined sugar.
The upshot is that it wasn't that hard--and I wasn't a Diet Nazi about it. I still drank. I still smoked. I, like I said, still snacked.
Bottom line is you don't have to kill yourself to do this thing--and if you stick with it for even two to three months you will notice results and it will inspire you.
BUT DON'T OVERDO IT TO START!!!!! START SLOW PLEASE!!! Then work your way up.
You WILL DO IT! I believe in you!
Mine is to eat more cootage cheese...
Or less cootage cheese...
Whichever is the better cheesological choice for me...
(just playing, not hating)
for shots! Pure alcohol is just healthier, no carbs!
Get more excited for Bowl season at the end of next year. Come on Blue got to get a bowl game next season!!!!
-1 Calories are calories. Try getting drunk less.
His point is getting smashed on liquor consumes fewer calories than getting equally smashed on beer. Looking at that statement after writing it, I believe a study is in order.
Who's with me?
My resolution: Lose my voice at the game on Sunday.
1) Build up some muscle, get six pack I was close to achieving and never got there
2) Get grades up
I resolve to represent, and wear my gear with pride,
and even if they fail to win, I will not run and hide.
I promise I will don my cap and blazer, maize and blue,
and let the people know that I am faithful through and through.
I swear I'll cheer for Michigan, no matter what the score,
supporting them through thick and thin, cause that's what fans are for.
This year I will resolve to be, a noble gentleman,
and I will show I'm proud to be a fan of Michigan.
1. to at least attempt to add weight/muscle
2. Keep my GPA intact
3. To kill the stupid fucking squirrel in the attic
I actually quit on Christmas. 7 days without a single cigarette is my longest stretch in a long while. I vow to never have a cigarette again.
It's all mind over matter. Keep it up. In May, it'll be 5 years for me.
over 2000 miles this year. I came close in 2009, but life got in the way too many times.
1) To keep up my G.P.A.
2) To finally make it to a game in the Big House.
Not necessarily in that order
I'm so excited for you, I hope you make it out to the Big House this year!
I've been lucky enough to have gone to a ton of games, but honestly, I get the same overwhelming feeling/chills every.single.time. The feelings start when we're walking toward the stadium and I can see the scoreboard from far, far away!
By the time the band comes out, it's pretty much impossible to not have at least a tear in your eye.
that I have never been. I grew up in Ypsi, and have been a fan since I was just a lil fella. (My first favorite player was Tony Boles) I attended the National Championship parade. That's why it's a resolution I guess. I have no legit reasons not to go.
EDIT- New favorite M football player...
But I don't believe in resolutions just because I feel like they are empty promises. If you need the excuse of a "clean slate"/new year to take up changes in habits, I don't see how anyone's gonna be successful. It takes a lot of determination and work to truly change, more than just the changing of a date.
But that's my $0.02, take it as just that. I think people can change from making resolutions I just feel like they could do it without them as well.
Well, I've never hooked up with an Asian.
