    Ok ladies, 1st happy holidays & happy new year to all.

    So anyone got any serious new years resolutions to keep to.

    I have several.
    1. Stop swearing (so much) mainly so kid doesnt randomly pop out the odd feck here & there
    2. Get fit, lose 15 kilo's, not fat at all, just want to feel & look healthier
    3. Finish the A3 once & for all, in prep for the 4th res
    4. Get new car/s
    5. Move house/renovate outlaws
    Sounds allot but in reality most can be acheived easily, just laziness stops us all huh.

    So man up, whats on cards for you horrible lot.

    Ooooooh thats also a good one, giving up the booze, problem is in italy in summer its great to go out to a bar & suck down a beer, then again a magners in UK is also nice, but as you well know to much of a good thing is not a good thing for the mind & body, so maybe this will be a 6th half resolution.

    What contradicts this is, my future father outlaw is so damn slim its unreal, short git aswell but he drinks wine every single day for lunch & dinner, easily knock back half a bottle, never pissed & well unreal he never puts any fat on ever, wish I had his metabolism, bar steward.

    6 Packs are hard, especially the 500ml ones :p

    I've only got one.
    1 - Get my self build started.

    I could do others but since I don't really drink, smoke, I cycle, surf and do other activities. I think I'm ok to put all my time and effort in to one big project or at least find out for sure if I can do it.
    I want to build it my self, like a proper self build. Only get contractors in when needed and train my self to do every thing else.
    That's the plan but first step is talk to the people in the know.

    1) Get a new job (redundancy sucks - been at home nearly four months on gardening leave and although its great spending time with the kids, they are doing my Swede in!)
    2) Get the little (and bigger) jobs done on the A4
    3) Lose some more weight - dropped nearly 50lbs in 2010, just want to drop a few more!

    Good luck .... LOL

    remember keeping fit is not just for January.

    It needs to be continous most weeks and a good varied diet most of the time...
    I have been working out for years now and to be honest it becomes part of your life.
    I get depressed if i can't train

    Mine are:

    Loose a bit more weight, last year I shifted 25kg in 6 months through hitting the gym, starting a new job and not being such a kebab monster, could do with loosing another 7kg.

    Also would like to get some decks and learn to mix, something I've been meaning to do for years...

    OK i need to eat a bit more healthier and try and get fitter, need to get in trim for when the little one starts to say "daddy can we play football/go to the park/ride the bikes etc etc!!!

    At the mo, the only football that will be getting played will be on the PS3!!

    Also im a bit of a kebab monster too and really need to cut down on that, we have cut down on takeaways loads over the past year, but need to do just that little bit more and start to eat a few more greens!!

    Ahhhh, you have just made me think of a disgusting greasy kebab... And now I want one really badly.... :(

    That's tonight's tea sorted, I am going to treat myself.

    My new years resolutions are the usual:

    Give up smoking, try and save more money, etc.

    However, as years past, none of the above will actually happen....

    Right well to update, most of my ressies are non starters due to illness in the family, but the 1 that has been working which maybe down to illness is weight, lost about 6.5 kilo's without even trying lol, result, ok maybe because I dont eat so many italian biscuits but shocked me today on the scales so enfused me to try harder as wanna trim up by summer.

    Others will be worked on when I'm better for sure.

    I'm quite chuffed today, but will buy new set of scales just to be sure :)

    Ah also dont swear as much now aswell.
