Did you accomplish the New Year’s resolution you made at the beginning of 2020?

Many people, whether they admit it out loud or not, make New Year’s resolutions. Did you make a resolution for 2020 that you accomplished? If not, is it the same resolution you have for 2021?

According to Statista, the top 2020 New Year’s resolutions were:
1. Manage finances better
2. Eat healthier
3. Be more active
4. Lose weight
5. Improve mental health
6. Improve social connections
7. Learn a new skill
8. Be more eco-friendly

Were any of these your resolutions, or did you hope to accomplish something other than what’s on the popular list here? If you’re comfortable sharing, please leave a comment saying what you did, or didn’t accomplish this year. It was a tough year for everyone – getting through it was accomplishment enough!

I did not win Powerball. Maybe in 2021.

In 1987 I made a new years resolution to never make another one. I am proud to say that I have kept that resolution for the past 33 years and plan to make it 34.

I lost 50 pounds. My resolution for 2021 is to lose 20 more. Make that 21!

Nothing beats A fail, but a try. And it takes the exact same amount of time to fail at something as it does to succeed.

My 1993 resolution was to become self sufficient in making jams and preserves. I did reach that goal and it triggered my husband from being negative about my canning to actually having to go to a marriage counselor to save our marriage. I wound up giving away most all my home canned stash-pickles, meats, fruits, tomato sauce, jams-to appreciative coworkers. I lost a very satisfying hobby but it led me into travelling more (on my own) backpacking, canoe camping, adding assistant commissioner work to my Assistant Scoutmaster position, and led to my purchasing my RV with my small inheritance in 2016. Since 1993 I have not made any resolutions.

Still married??

Many years ago I resolved not to make any new year resolutions. So far I’ve kept them every year.

My 2020 resolution was to spend less time running around, spend more time in the RV or at home reading, getting things done that I have neglected and get some time away from people in my face….. Little did I know how easy it would all be.

I don’t normally do New Years resolutions, but this year I resolved to retire, sell my house and full-time in our motorhome. I accomplished all those goals! I’m loving my new life. Happy Trails to you.

We don’t make New Years resolutions! Too hard to keep!
We just pray for health and happiness.

The only resolution we make is to get to the next year. We are in our 70’s and work on our health issues to make it to the next year of which we are now a few days away. Without our health we can not travel or be with friends and family or enjoy our show cars or go drag racing and other things we love to do. So working on our health issues to get to the next year gives us a resolution for every year.

Wishing all a HAPPIER NEW YEAR

Stay safe, Stay well

Last December I resolved to cross-over to the dark side and become a whole food, plant based vegan. Within 6 months my A1C dropped from 6.3 to 5.6 and I’m no longer pre-diabetic. My blood pressure and cholesterol meds are at 1/2 dose now too. I should be able to stop all meds soon. Plus I’ve lost over 30 lbs.

The food is great too, all it takes is a little effort but the rewards (side-effects) are fantastic.

I rarely get on the treadmill either, but I’d lose more weight if I did. All this in spite of being cooped up due to the pandemic. It’s great to eat carbs and feel full again!

I’m going to hit ‘refresh’ on this resolution, stay on the original Paleo diet, and am looking forward to improving my health further.

I had hoped to lose some pounds. Instead, with staying home for the pandemic, I ended up spending my time baking and cooking….oops! Added on instead of subtracted. Yikes. So, this new year, I’ll try it again!
