New Year's Resolution... overrated?

Ok it's the start of a new year. Yeah... yeah.. yeah... So what else is new aside from the fact that we move one to the next calendar year? As for me, my procrastination issues are very well in-forced. hahaha.

Yeah, if you have noticed, most bloggers posted their first blog for the year on the - first day of the year. Me, it's the 2nd week already or half of the first month of the year. So there is really nothing new. If there is really new, it's I am writing at all. I have been busy and it's not an alibi, it's a way of life now.

So, my questions are:
1. Do you do New Year's Resolution thingies?
2. Do you actually do it? hahaha

Well, for me, I don't. I tried many times only to fail. So I just do what I feel like doing on the given day and move on from there. And yes, I actually do it... for sometime and forget all about it around the 3rd month of the year. LOL.

But the big thing that really happened last year was I made a new year's resolution around March and I am still doing it. I am renewing my promise and I did it.

Last year, I promised that I will take in-charge of my health and started running. I ran 7 races [5k] last year and I started with my first 5k this year. Hopefully, I will be able to run one race every month. And I want to keep it simple and uncomplicated.

Happy New Year all.

Ruthi, I do not do the resolution thing but I make a list of things I need help with and place it in an ash tray (the only one in our home) then light it up and say a prayer to God at midnight trusting in His assistance with them. I like to trust my new year to Him.

So great! I love hearing that people have started a healthier life. I want to run and race for fun too, but too much work.
1) I don't have any new year resolutions for 2012. But I have been stretching and trying to do the elliptical every Mon and Fri. So far so good, I feel better day by day from these simple and short exercises.
2) I am afraid of making or proclaiming something and not living up to it.
