Is anybody making any for 2013? Just reading back and I did achieve most of my goals I made in 2012, visited all the places I aimed to plus Sweden and Crete, lost weight at long last and improved my fitness (thanks so much to everyone on the Weight Watcher's thread without whom it would never have happened - MrG you have achieved yours as I am one of many that has been inspired by yourself). I have finally met a_person, re met Andrews, Jordsmum, Beate, MrGlass, Prettyxcool and Ejwrank. I then had the pleasure of meeting up with Preston1990 (he will be back in the new year :D ) and the lovely ladies in Scotland - Biggins, Marjoreemarjora and havingascreen. Akh43, Steve, Yogi, Betty Botter and r33ceh have become very good friends along with everyone above.

Goals not achieved but to be added to 2013
1) Meet MsThrifty in person
2) Not decluttered my cupboards enough.

I have plenty of things I want to do...

1. Stop hiding and rejoin the WW thread, the season of Fatmass, I mean, Christmas, is nearly over. I've been bad and need to get back on the wagon! :p

2. Find some way of keeping fit that I will stick to - so far, all I can think of is getting off the tube early, but I actually walk a lot and that seems to make no difference, so I need to put more thought in. Maybe I need a FMUKer to drag me to a gym! :p I've never set foot in one.

3. Be more tolerant of idiots. This will surely bring my stress levels down.

4. Redesign my website, I've been working on some code over the holidays, still not quite there.

5. Sit (and pass) some work related exams.

I think that's quite enough to be getting on with!
Preferred cinemas:
Vue West End, Cineworld Haymarket, Odeon West End, Odeon Leicester Square, Empire Leicester Square, Cineworld O2, Cineworld Shaftesbury Avenue and Odeon Panton Street, followed by anywhere in central(ish) London.

1) have a healthier lifestyle
2) be more sociable
3) do whatever it takes to find a job in the US at least for a few months (which is what I've been planning for two years :( )

If I am confident enough I'll be able to do these things - if I do these things I'll become more self-confident.
Ha. :cross:
Well, I had a good laugh reading this.
So my new resolution will simply be to stop shitting with myself and do everything to get my act together.

Yes. Must get to 150 next year. I was simply too lazy this year.
Well I am at 130. Even if I get another one or two in tomorrow, it's not going to be 20 of them so I have failed. Miserably. I am on a par with 2010 at present and need to get at least one more in to make it the second best year for me. What a drag.

I'd like to lose weight (failed miserably hence my not going to the Weight Watchers page on here for a while now...feeling too guilty!)

Try to exercise more

Declutter my flat

Meet up with friends I've not seen in ages

& lots more little things but these are the main ones!

Happy New Year 2013 to everyone on fmuk :) Clare x

You're inspiring me girls and now I have a few more.
1)Meet MsThrifty and meet up again with my lovely friends on here plus new ones.
2) De-clutter my paperwork and cupboards.
3)Stay under 10 stone (I will weigh myself today and have a feeling I will be more than that with all my eating of late - so maybe get under 10 stone) and keep up with the exercise which I have lapsed of of late (done 2 lots this weekend so a start)
4) Read a book at least every 2 months (I don't mean the studying sort).
5)Visit Cologne, Florence, Venice and Lille (I will need to do some serious saving/working to achieve all this)
6)Save up for a new car (if mine still works I won't be replacing it but need some car funds for when the time comes).

We will all achieve our goals with support from each other and sheer determination o/ Even achieving one is a positive o/
I get a bit carried away with mine :roll:

What with working, hubby & two teenagers, being a carer for two elderly relatives, my only resolution is to try and find some "me-time".
I know this sounds fairly selfish but some days my head just seems to spin and before I know another day has passed!
