    Hello to my TB brothers and sisters. I have decided my resolution for the New Year is to take better care of myself (exercising and eating better) and practice bass for at least an hour a day. I am also NOT purchasing new bass gear unless something breaks and needs replacing. I have all the gear I need, the love of a good woman, great kids and grandkids, and a great working band.
    Just wondering...what's your resolution?
  2. I'm joining you on the exercise/eating better part.

    We eat good food around here every day...lots of organics, a Literal Apple A Day, and now it’s time (past time!) for me to get back to my Pilates.
    Come March it’ll be 2 years since the good Dr. removed my prostate...a life-changing event, as you can imagine.
    In the 3 months leading up to getting cut, I was religious about my daily Pilates session...core strength, abdominal floor, etc. I lost lotsa weight...good food, walking everywhere, less beer...you know the drill!
    Now, it’s time to get back up on that horse!
    I’ve scheduled a session with a Pilates instructor. She can help remind me of what I’m capeable of doing, and help with technique. After that, it’s all on me.:thumbsup:

    And,:unsure: oh yeah!
    I gotta play more!

    Yep, same here about exercising and eating. I'll fail, but try my best to always get up again :D The past year went sorta good, so I'm keen on seeing how it goes on.

    I need to stabilize my weight roller coaster. 5 years ago I lost a significant amount of weight and kept it off. Health issues caused me to begin taking meds that adversely affected my weight and I gained 20 pounds back. Now that my body has stabilized again, I need to kick those pounds to the curb and get back to my goal of 25 more.

    This year I'm making my body my biatch :)

    Changing your life for the better is fine and dandy but if you're not gonna do it today I don't know what someone expects is gonna change in four days.

    To accept the fact I am getting older. I guess I have been in denial. I still try to still do some of the same stuff I did in my twenties and thirties. Like surfing. It gets very frustrating when I can't perform at the same level. I know...my wife tells me getting old is a drag, but the alternative will kill you. I need to deal with it better.

    Yeah working mostly. I have found it works best when one sets shorter, measurable goals.

    We are going to Disney the last week of Fedruary. I need to get in better shape to keep up with 6 and 9 year old girls.

    So I have decided to start hitting the elliptical machine at least 40 minute at least 5 nights a week. I am also doing some kettle bell stuff to work my lower back.

    The goal between now and then is to lose 2 1/2 inches on my belly (which should basically rid me of it). And I also want to keep lowering my bnlood pressure. I managed to get through the holidays without gaining a single ounce.... So there's that.

    After I hit that goal I'll come up with another and go from there.

    Year long goals don't work. They are too fdar off and too hard to track progress.... and too easy to put off until next month. So set shorter goals that you can actually measure.
