  • Primal New Year's Resolutions?

    Seeing as how New Year's is next Tuesday, I was wondering what (if any) Primal New Year's Resolutions the good folks here have? Do you make resolutions? Do you do something else?

    Let me know.
    Went Primal July 25th, 2011.

    Current Age: 25

    Total Loss: 126 lbs

    Starting Stats: Weighed 266 lbs, Body Fat 37.6% (100 lbs), BMI 40.9

    Current Stats: Weight 140 lbs, Body Fat 15.2% (21.1 lbs), BMI 21.2

    Current Goals: Get a stronger core through Pilates and continue being as Primal as I can be.

      OMG trekfan - that is a huge weight loss.
      Well done you.
      I don't think that you need any New Years resolutions. Keep enjoying life ............... at your age - the world is your oyster !!!!!!!!!!!!

        HAHA, yes, I hear this. It seems so worth it for about five seconds and then ... not so much.

        Thanks primal Gwamma. Yeah, I did lose a lot of weight which has left me lacking any New Year's Resolutions this year. Last year I was still losing weight (60 pounds down roughly from where I was last New Year's) but I'm not this year.

        True, I need to eat a bit cleaner (the Christmas holidays ... sigh) but that applies for a lot of us I think. I'm thinking that this year my New Year's Resolutions should be less physical and more cerebral.

          I have very modest resolution this year. To brush my teeth every night. Dunno if it's Primal, but I keep falling asleep before I brush my teeth, so I want to make sure to brush them earlier at night right after supper. I am not sure just WHY it is such a monumental fit of willpower. ???

            As far as lifestyle goes...exercise more frequently, enjoy the outdoors more. My big resolutions are to travel more and to be around friends more.

              For years, my only resolution has been not to make a list to start on the New Year.
              The one I kicked off Wednesday was getting in some form of exercise every day. Walking, sprints, weights, body weight, SOMETHING.
              Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                I generally use a scatter approach for resolutions. I make a ton of them with the idea that if I even keep one, I'm still better off than the year before. They generally revolve around things like getting more organized, going to places I haven't been yet, and taking better care of myself.

                  I don't really make resolutions anymore--I set goals instead. This year I want to achieve a 300-pound deadlift and 200-pound squat. I also want to learn and implement better time management skills. Resolutions seem like "I will" or "I won't" statements with a pass/fail mentality. Goals are targets with concrete steps and measurable outcomes. Maybe that's just semantics, but it makes a difference in how likely I am to succeed.

                    My resolutions are to get round to losing the last 45lbs that need to disappear, to quit whining about doing weights and just get on with, and to tidy out my office and keep it tidy

                      This year I'm trying a new approach: if something is so unimportant than I can wait for some arbitrary day (new year, whatever) before starting, it isn't important enough to do. This is in contrast to my old approach: if something is important enough to be new year's resolution, it's too important to delay until an arbitrary day.

                        I'm giving up sugar and alcohol.
                        1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
                        2. Eat to heal
                        3. Move to live
                        4. Embrace today
                        5. Live with intention
                        6. Respect my body
                        7. Cultivate joy
                        8. Find my passion
                        9. Meditate on peace in my soul

                          Complete the weight loss (40 lbs down in 2012, another 40ish to go) but focus more on
                          being healthy not just physically but mentally/spiritually and emotionally
                          spend more time outdoors: go kayaking, hiking, camping things I have never done in my 46 years
                          build a tribe
                          get a second job
                          start saving money to buy my own land
                          recognize that all of this is ongoing

                          This looks like a lot but I have started the process on all of it so I am feeling fairly confident...
                          You know all those things you wanted to do: You should go do them.
