Fresh Start

January 2nd, 2013
By

So begins anoddah year of "promises".

It's a start of something new or fresh or just a change in general but let's get real, while we all dream of a "do over", it's near impossible da older we get. You're talking about trying to stop cold turkey - watevah your "resolution" may be - YEARS of habits manipulated into our DNA. Wat makes it worse is dat you tink you can do it by yourself..... ha ha ha!

Wassup Wit Dat!

Da changes include but not limited to: losing weight, stop smoking, save money, blah blah blah. Surah, it's tough - but not impossible - and any kine of lifestyle change(s) definitely begins with you but you're gonna need help. Why do you tink infomercials will NEVAH die?

So fo'get all those silly promises and let's make some REAL resolutions. Post all da things you still GOING to do even though you not supposed to do. Who knows, dis resolution might last longer than your "fake" one.... it wouldn't be WWD! if it didn't. :grin:

So don't fool yourself and maybe, just maybe, you might have a resolution dat you actually follow through on. :shock:

How many of you have actually followed through on a resolution? How many of you failed? How many days before you failed? Are you one to actually make a list?

I promise to stop drinking da hard stuff...... and stick to lite beea.
I promise to eat less...... wen I not hungry.
I promise to always smile...... wen people no ack stupid.

And, I promise to keep writing WWD!....... as long as Da WWD! Hui keeps posting. :wink:

    :cool: Happy New Year :cool:

    ... hey Braddah Lance ... I don't make resolutions or promises for the New Year ... because if I haven't already started changing or doing something different ... the New Year isn't any more of a motivation for me ... the luster of the New Year fades so fast ...

    I promise not to spend more money ... than I have in my wallet ...
    I promise not to eat more food ... than I have on my plate ...
    I promise to be nicer ... than the Grinch ...

    ... okay ... I guess I can have a real one ...

    I promise to have more compassion ... because I may not know the circumstances that others are in ...

    ... Have a Great Year Everyone!!! ...

    Last year was a success. Cut out all soda and cut red meat in half :(
    This year I've already started a boot camp workout at my local gym, 3 days a week. I've lost 15 pounds since leaving Hawaii, and I'm applying with the Highway Patrol in Cali, so I gotta look 23, even though I'm now 33.


  6. Keoni Simpkins:

    I promise to not make any rude remarks... unless da lolo make me real kine huhu!
    I promise not to give way to road rage... unless I get one ka'a!

    Umm, gotta think of more; I'll let you know...

    Happy New Year, BL & all!

    Well, I cheated. Thought if i gave myself a 'head start' by starting the week before New Years, I can't say I broke my resolutions. ;-)

    Cutting my monthly expenses down this year: First thing I did was to cut my cell phone bill ~in half by dropping my hotspot and going VZ prepaid. I am not so smart, so why the heck would I want a phone smarter than me, anyhow? :-D

    Losing weight: gonna try for ~10 lbs. Kinda started by mistake because I got hella sick the night after Christmas and couldn't eat for 2 days anyway, so am continuing with a safe & easy fast. It will enable my stomach to shrink, and then I am going to eat smaller, healthier meals and stop eating by sunset - no matter what. Then I'm going to either join the Y or at least the Kailua pool exercise classes.

    Good luck to you with your own!

    Happy New Year everyone!

    Promise to be debit free in 6 years - da wife and I started on this one in Dec.

    Waaaaassssuuuuuppppppp BL!!!!


  10. hemajang:

    eh BL, hope you and family doing well. No New Years resolutions, don't tink I made one before...just go set goals on the fly throughout year, change priorities as needed. Lately its been taking better care of wife, staying fit, and generally making better use of my time. No promises I can't keep.


  11. SittingInLimbo:

    Happy New Year!!!! I hope everyone's holidays were fun & safe. :)

    Okay I've never made a resolution because I know I going break um.....so with that said I'll just say I'm going to TRY:

    Be considerate of people's girl feelings (i'm sorry i no can stand woe is me and stupid. I can't handle sensitive)
    Mind how I talk to people (i'm sorry just at times people are stupid)
    Quit smoking (on going battle)
    Drink less soda (I need to take baby steps lol)
    Forgive easy (cause lord knows)
    Remind myself that everybody doesn't think like me and shouldn't. (buwhahahaha)

    Geez seeing this list "written" down it's going to be a rough one lmbo.

    Happy new year! Last year I successfully went from drinking two diet cokes a day to one. That is as good as it's going to get. Last night I jumped on the scale and screamed so I guess I have the same resolution I have every year: lose weight!
