Do You Make New Years Resolutions?

I've been seriously thinking about this the last few days because it is almost the end of the year.  My first instinct is not to make them, but to be the best that I can be.  Do you or have any of you ladies make/made resolutions?

I make them, but not things like 'go to the gym every day' or 'stop eating chocolate' because I would never stick to it and I'd be angry that I failed.

This year's resolution is to make (and document) lots of special memories with my boys before they start school in September. We're starting with our DisneyWorld trip in February and are thinking of things for after we get back

I can't wait!!

Yes, and right now I just want to stop stressing!


I lost weight which is great, but now my dress is too big and money is so tight I am not sure what I am going to do. If I could get down to a size 22 then I would be all set, someone here is selling that size dress for just $100 but I am a size 24 and down from a 28 I don't think I can lose that much to get to a 22.


I guess my resolution will be me just being happy with my normal "Sunday dress" that I wear all the time. It is pretty with bright flowers all over it.

I don't often make a resolution.  I always break it and then feel like a failure. 


I am more apt to set personal goals:
read a certain number of books
debt payment
house goals


That is about the extent of my goal setting/resolution sort of thing.

Good ones ladies.  I think I'm with you guys, setting more personal goals.  In the past when I have made resolutions and didn't follow through on them, I too have felt like I failed. 


I love the making and documenting more of our memories.  : )

I usually don't but regarding the last couple of months, I wish this year to be able to "let it go" and try to be happy when I can, even if it out of small things!

I don't. I seem to not be very good at keeping to them.

I usually do in my head but have a hard time keeping them. I think my main ones are to just be happy and healthy!

I do and it's hit and miss most of the time, but for some reason, I feel super motivated to keep them this year!!  :)

I usually do, but this year i am not even going to write them. I just going to do it. Sometimes when you plan things and they dont happen all you have left is the dissapoiment.

Most of the time I forget about resolutions. Lol! My only New Years resolution is to live happy and healthy. I want to try to tackle 3 family trips this year instead of just our usual 1 in the summer.

I am not really set a certain one. I just want to step outside of my comfort zone. and I have already done that today! I started a YouTube channel!! I am going to be vlogging about my weight loss/ fitness journey and I hope to motivate other mothers who dont have much time for them to do the same thing!! And I also joined a volleyball league. I am not good at all but it is def out of my comfort zone so I said yes!

Yes I make them and never stick to them, but this year is sooo different I am determined to stay focus and do what I am suppose to do. My faith is really important to me so I will be working on a closer walk with God, also helping my son to get his SSI so he can be ably to maintain on  his own or what he thinks will be his own ( his younger brother will be living with him) 2013 is the year of new beginnings and I am ready.

I don't usually, but I am this year. It's to be more careful with my money and to start saving... though I just bought something from etsy so my resolution will start tomorrow ;) lol!
