Hey @Jon & everyone, Happy New Year! The falling snow on AWF was an exquisite touch, much enjoyed.

I am an "open book" this year on my New Year's resolutions.

Hoping to:
1) Get closer yet to God in my relationship with Him, understand better how He loves me, and then do a better job of walking in the fruit of the Spirit - especially toward others in my personal life (love, kindness, forgiveness, charity, when it's OK to be tougher versus when to hold my tongue and be a peacemaker). Last year was a focus on peace/serenity, which I'm quite satisfied with the results!
2) Lose 30 pounds and gain a well established actual habit of my treadmill routine at least 3x/week. (This was last year's resolution as well, total failure - but I have some new tools now).

Like anyone, I have a lot of notions (ranging from vague to specific) about things to do, avoid, accomplish, discover or become; but those are the two that I don't mind making public.

As clichéd as New Year's resolutions may be (especially #2!) ... Yet, the more open I am about them, the more likely that I may be able to make them more than JUST a cliché!

Welcome 2022! 2021 had its challenges but it's important to maintain perspective.

I did a similar resolution two or three years ago. Ended up losing 29 pounds and had to have a change of clothes.

That's great, well done!

I guess the biggest factor I have now that I didn't have before is my son is going to live with us this semester, and he and I enjoy going together (we are both similarly lazy when faced with the need to go alone, but greatly enjoy going together). This despite the fact that his BMI is literally exactly half of mine and our gym goals are entirely different--opposite, really.

I was never successful in convincing myself to take up video gaming in any form (like he does), so the gym is the one "activity" we truly do together.

Sadly, I am starting again. it begins tomorrow! I've made a list of meals that will be allowable broken down into breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Saturdays are cheat days. I will be logging everything I eat into my loseit! app. Daily steps will be tracked using my Fitbit, blood pressure taken weekly, weight logged daily and graphed.

You can see exactly what I did the last time by looking at this thread:


Here are my results shown in the last post in that thread:
