'New Year New you' and all that bollocks.

So what is your New Years resolutions?

1) Lose weight and get back in shape. I wrecked my body in 2015 so I need to get back on that gooseberry fool.
2) Focus on writing and video editing. I love it but I keep not doing it.
3) Watch more movies. I've basically snubbed every form of media apart from games.

You make a thread about new year's resolutions but don't tell us yours? Pfft.

Mine is to procrastinate less and less between workouts.

I think I should be able to manage that. :slol:

To follow up on last year.

1. I'm moving in January to go live with my Dad and my Mum is going into warden assisted accomodation near where he lives so I want to make that move a success.
2. Get a temporary job while I look for a job in networking.
3. Use my third attempt at my CCNA to actually pass it to make number 2 possible.
4. Keep studying hard to finish the final modules for my degree, I've only got one left after the two I'm doing and no exams!


1. The move went fine, moved again since then and while it went well, living with my step mum hasn't been easy and it's been pretty gooseberry fool.
2. Managed to get a job in IT/Network support as my first job and I'm doing pretty well. Spoke to my boss today who said everyone really liked me out of our clients and the other staff/bosses and he said if I continue going the way I am good things will come to me next year (which made me really excited when he told me that today, possible promotion already would be insane).
3. Didn't attempt the CCNA due to lack of time and money. Didn't need it to get my job thankfully.
4. Misscalculated this, needed two more modules. One I finished and essentially got my degree, final module starts February and doesn't count for anything, but I need the credits.

Which brings me on to 2016.

1. Move again to my Dad's new house and make that move go well.
2. Continue pushing myself to learn new things and improve at work to hopefully grab a super early promotion!
3. Manage my time better when I'm not working. I want for this next year to arrange what games I'm going to play and actually finish them rather than letting a huge backlog grow and grow.
4. Learn to drive before July.

1) Get back to work. This *has* to happen.
2) Be better at trying new things.
3) Buy fewer games (err... I will, if I don't do (1) pretty sharpish). Actually play them.

Get a fit bird that likes doing strawberry floated up gooseberry fool.

Regain all the muscle lost over in Oz and hit 2x body weight on deadlift for 30 reps. Could be hard.

From last year.

Now that I've got the life expectancy of Old Yeller I doubt I'll ever waste my time with a long term proper job, but I suppose if I become sufficiently destitute I won't have a choice. Happy enough not reaching that one anyway.

Second point's gone perfectly.

Third one too, before destroying my shoulder this past fortnight. Hopefully that clears up fairly quickly.

For 2016:
Fitness goals are already in that thread for the coming year.

Secure freelance work that means I can travel and work anywhere in the world. Expecting this to be very hard.

Stay with the girlfriend; from opposite sides of Europe and I'm not doing a long term ldr so strawberry float knows.

Either do a three month trip around the US or save up enough money, find someone to do it with, and plan it out for 2017.

Stay alive beyond tonight. Try to not pick up any other life threatening illnesses. We'll see.

Last year:

LewisD wrote:Mine would be:

  • Have a threesome with two chicks


That genuinely is one of mine, and I'm talking to a girl who is up for it so I think I could manage it in the next few weeks, fingers crossed.

Other things are a bit more normal:

Keep going to the gym, increase 10k time, start swimming, increase weight lifting PBs, count calories and adjust eating habits if needed but so far things seem ok.
Get a new job that has better hours and pay, so that I can rejoin the course I was doing last year.
Get back into the habit of learning things, but to really do that well I will need to:
Rebuild my PC so it strawberry floating works.


Nope.
Um, things went alright for a while, then gooseberry fool, then pretty good, now been gooseberry fool for a month or so.
New job, not doing course for a good while though.
Not really.
Yup, it's a strawberry floating beast. I love it.


This year:

Get out of debt. Should happen by March.
Start saving into a HTB ISA.
Aim to move out of my Mum's.

Plus what I wrote in the fitness thread:
-Body weight below 80kg
-Waist 32"
-45 min 10k
-Beat my previous times in 10k's that I do with my family (assuming they don't change the routes)
-Deadliftt 1.5x bodyweight
-Bench bodyweight
-Squat bodywight
-10 sets of 5 slow and controlled pull ups and chin ups with no assistance


I'm trying to convince a friend to compete against me at a bleep test in 6 months time, so if I can: kick his arse at it.


Not really much else I can reasonably aim for until I move out really.

Anyone got a link to last years thread so I can see how well I did?

Edit: I've just read the post up there...I have the link now thanks.

OK So this was last year :
1 ) I need to stop thinking. I constantly overthink every situation. I worry about what other think of me and I regret a lot. I'm too busy regretting the past or worrying about the future to enjoy the present. Lets see if I can do that without the assistance of drugs.

2 ) Pass my exams next month and enjoy my job wherever I end up going (one of the things I have of course been worrying about).

3) Expand myself socially. Go on a few dates, I don't go on dates, tbh I don't really try with women at all unless they leap into my arms. So If I can say I've been on 5-10 different dates (or lots of good dates with the same person) then that will be a small accomplishment. Probably a big accomplishment actually. I'm pretty darn great I just never do enough to show all the ladies ;)

4) Enjoy my own company too. I struggle when I'm by myself and somehow feel like the whole world is having fun without me. I KNOW I can enjoy my own time, and I will have to a lot over the next year. I just have to learn to switch that darn head off and enjoy the moment.


Soooo I was pretty depressed this time last year over a girl so it seems to show in my posting style, hah!

I managed Number 2 A-OK - passed the exams, qualified six months later. Enjoying life.
Number 4 - I also managed reasonaby well as I have been forced to spend more time alone living in a new area.
Number 1 - Well, to an extent, I'm happier in myself now, but still when Im feeling a bit down I over analyse a lot of things.
Number 3 - Well I have made lots of new friends. I have been dicking about with tinder and online dating but not to a serious amount. So it wasn't really done no. I need to get out there a bit more when it comes to the ladies.

So my resolution for this year will be a few simple ones.

1 ) Try to eat a little healthier. And no I don't mean a whole new diet. I just mean occasionally skipping the macdonalds, chocolate or takeaway that I have no self control over at the moment

2) I think I should keep the dating thing in there, and actually try harder to meet some ladies this year. I should genuinely try to be a more appealing person to women as well rather than being that really awesome guy (blowing ones own trumpet, I know) that girls like but dont actually fancy (stupid women).

3) Drink less alcohol. I currently drink about 4 nights a week but don't often drink more than 2 pints. I don't really need to be drinking at all when this is the case.

1. Get a new job based off new qualifications.
2. Work out at least twice a week. I am quite shappy about it at present.
3. Buy my own place...? Kind of unlikely and completely depends on the first goal but I reckon I have already saved up half the deposit I would need already and could beg or borrow the rest from family if need be provided I could meet the monthly payments.

For 2016:

  • Lose at least two stone and stop being a fatty
  • take up a hobby again, either ice hockey, or airsofting
  • Buy a car for myself. I mean, as in a treat car that I can drive for fun.
