    What is your new years resolution?

    What is your new years resolution? Mine probably should be not to spend so much time poking around on Degree Info.

    I don't believe in them. I usually break them quickly and just feel bad. My resolution is not to make any!

    I always have a hard time maintaining my exercise routine through the long New England winter months. I have also learned the hard way that I will usually not drive to the gym at 6AM. So my big Christmas present to myself was my purchase of a used eliptical trainer (I bought it used from someone who's even worse than me). I like it because I can use it any time of day and don't have to worry about the weather, road conditions, drive times or how I look. I can just go at it. Result: I'm exercising more (and watching more stupid TV)

    I like to jog along the trail near my house, but only when it's warm out, and to me that's about seven months of the year. Fortunately, I will go to the gym (albeit later in the morning), and as a result I too watch a lot more stupid TV, since all they have on there are CNN, ESPN, and the local ABC affiliate.

    I was just telling my son that the other day. I never keep them so why make on every year. That's how I ended up with a 2 year gym membersip I'm still paying on.

    Have you thought about just changing over to an Electric Cigarette? My uncle started using them and has not bought a pack of real cigarettes in over a year. You buy the fluid to re-fill the cartridges and its really cheap and a lot healthier for you. And you can smoke anywhere with one.
    Electric Cigarette ™ The home of the Original E-Cigarette #1 LOWEST PRICE $54.95

    I just bought one so I can get away without the withdrawals. I’m going to be doing my practicum for my LCDC in a few months so I don’t want to be smoking.

    To quit smoking is a great idea, for sure. Electronic cigarettes, not so, according to the World Health Organization.

    I'm not talking about using it as a stop smoking aid, just a better cleaner way to get your nicotine ; )

    But if they are saying that about the E cig's then they need to get on Nicorette for making the nicotine inhaler in doses of High to Low just like the E Cig's or even the gum which also goes in does from High to Low. They are the same thing.

    2 things on my list. 1) I'm going to become a regular blood donor. I go later in January for an apt to give "double red" since I have negative blood, then I'll give every 112 days. 2) Getting on the bone marrow match registry. It's a simple cheek swab and an issue that's really important to our family since we have a family friend needing a bone marrow transplant in a couple of months.

    I don't believe in resolutions either. Resolutions essentually highlight something about yourself, that you don't like, and would like to change. Now although I'm not perfect, I don't believe I'm highly flawed either; and I like the person I've become so I don't really feel the need to make a resolution to change what I am or what I've become.

    Just be yourself and be proud of the person you are.
