What are your New Years Resolutions?

So here is the grand question...Today is Jan. 02...
Have you made any New Years Resolutions?
If you have...Have you already broken them??

I don't normally make New Years Resolutions, but this year I decided to be different.
so...I actually made several.

1) Lose about 25lbs...(after baby weight..)
that is reasonable I think...not a huge amount for one year...
I am headed in that direction by going to buy a double stroller today so that I can resume my daily walks I used to take before Jeremy.
I am also thinking of cutting all sugar out Monday to Friday.
I have a couple of friends who have tried it with positive results.
Pilates is low impact, easy on the joints, and I have also had friends who have had positive results with that as well.

2) Take a vacation.
It has been five or six years now since Kendal and I have made it away from Regina.
I am going STIR CRAZY
I need to get out of the city for a while...
To that end, we actually have to save some money.


Not easy, since I am not working, and the price of everything has risen drastically. We haven't quite figured out this one yet, short of saving Kendal's income tax return, since some months since Sept...we haven't even managed groceries short of diapers and milk...

I actually do have other ones at the moment...but I need to think about them more..
and I am not sure I have been in the head space lately to seriously implement any of them since I have been suffering with depression far more seriously the last year then I have ever...
so I think I will wait till my brain is more reasonable to consider other future plans... i try not to take myself too seriously when I feel like this....

So...are any of you willing to share your resolutions if any?
