Continue the excercise program I set myself for 2011, and followed fairly closely, with an increase in walking to twice a day from once, at least 5 days per week, with more stretching excercises.

I still need to lose weight; will concentrate on that.

Maybe get some surgeries done that I've been putting off for years.Tongue

Do a comprehensive photo journal of the meadow and ravine behind our house. Might make it a 365 project.

Finally decided to stop fighting with Revenue Canada and pay them the taxes, interest, and penalties I owe them, and be done with the stress of it all.Grin

We've never had a major problem with fast foods, but last year we decided to elliminate it alltogaether. Easiest thing we've ever done.Smile

Spend more time at my music, reading, and photography, and far less time on the PC.Grin

I,m going to learn how to use my camera without the presets. I,m going to stick my knob on PROGRAM and rip it off so i can't use anything else !!!!!

I'm also going to stop telling fibs Wink

I,m also going to watch more wildlife programmes like "Earthflight" which is on BBC1 now and is absolutley amazing. Grin

I fell asleep during Earthflight Sad

Not sure if this helps, is utter bollix or is scientific fact but.....

98% of worrying aint worth worrying about Smile

It is something i heard many moons ago and has kinda stuck with me all these years, and in a way its true, most worry is pointless fretting. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, so are rose tinted glasses Smile

1 - Stop living a certain someone elses life, if he won't compromise on things find one that will. Life is too short and you never know whats around the corner.

2 - Join a camera club.

3 - Spend more time doing what i love............. taking photos Grin

still 17 days until i finish last years resolution, 1 year ago like above i said i need to lose wieght, 2.5 lbs short of my target, so chuffed with myself as that is 9 stone lost, so this year resolution is to trim a little more and maintain my healther eating plan.

On the downside I seemed to become addicted to buying new clothes, so got to stop as wardrobes getting full now,I think its the novalty of being able to buy off the shelf lol.
Apart from that want to try the following

Learn to use the video on my camera
complete a photo book for the group im a member of
Finish a website
Take less pictures but better quality

Nine stone lost? That's an incredible achievement! If I can do half that I will be over the moon. Smile

Yes well done Kev, I know what you mean about the clothes having lost 4.5 stone myself, the Salvation Army have had all my XL and L stuff.

This year my resolution should be easier. The first is to maintain my healthier lifestyle to prevent me putting it all back on again, and the second is to improve my cycling endurance so I can take part in the Audax UK National 400 km ride on the 16th June.
