Report On Intentions.

In the beginning of 2012 I had listed my intentions for the year.

A review is given below each intention.

In January 2011, I had decided to get my weight down from 102 Kgs to 80. By July, I had brought it down to 85 Kgs. Since I had to stop walking to get ready for my surgery in late September that crept back up to 88 Kgs and has stayed there since due to inactivity. I intend reaching the goal of 80 Kgs sooner than later. As soon as I reach that magic figure, I intend getting myself a few pairs of jeans! Can’t let Conrad steal all the thunder.

It has been a yoyo experience. Just before I sat down to write this, I weighed myself and found that I am now 82Kgs. Some more work needs to be put into it and more importantly on maintaining it at that level.

I intend using my club facilities regularly. Due to various reasons, I had more or less stopped going to the club during the last two years and I intend changing that.

Utter failure. I went once to cast my vote for the election of the Managing Committee and had breakfast while there. Must try harder this year.

I intend to get out of the house more often than I have been doing the last few years. These outings will include out of town trips as well as within town, eating out, movies, meetings, parties, etc.

Highly successful. In fact I went out of town too on a number of occasions. Will continue the trend this year too.

I intend learning how to use the camera gifted to me by Ranjan last year and use the photographs taken to write blogs around them.

Utter failure. That camera never came out of the cupboard. Will make it an intention for this year all over again.

I intend being sans sitzfleisch for bores who deliver monologues. I intend doing the same for some of my mentees too.

Partly successful. Must try harder.

I intend making regular use of the Ipod that Ranjan has given me with all kinds of music loaded on.

Highly successful!

    The camera might last longer hidden away in a box, but why not use as a an exercise carrot? I find I walk further when I have the camera with me as I am always anxious to see what is around the next corner. Try one photo walk a week, choose a theme… perhaps colour – a yellow flower, a red bicycle or a colourful bird. Numbers are good too….. Three walkers in the joggers park, two cookies on a plate, 5 letters ready for posting.
    Now go take the dust off that box and use the camera!!!!

    In years past I always made new year resolutions. But for the life of me I can’t remember what it was that I decided on last year. And I haven’t really thought of something for 2013. Maybe I should give this some more thought….

    brilliant suggestion with the camera grannymar!
    i enjoyed your re-cap of the year rummy. weight is always on my own mental list. i never ‘resolve.’ just am aware of what i need to work on.
    the new apts have a ‘workout’ room i intend to use and there are also beautiful places to walk. when you’re 5ft 1 inch EVERY pound shows. i just need to grow taller. that would solve it!

    Happy New Year Rummy!

    lol it is so refreshing to see a man talking about his weight – you rock. But what really caused me to laugh was the intention to buy a few pairs of jeans. Are we cousins and I don’t know? lol πŸ™‚

    Aaah, Rummy…lovely, lovely post: thank you. This is a wonderful way to start the year.
    You, once again, made me laugh to tears. You rock.

  5. Lately my New Year’s resolutions have always been the same: continue what I’m doing. That works for me. πŸ™‚

    I don’t make “intentions” either as I have such an interesting life without adding something in that might hamper my spirit of it all πŸ™‚

    Oh, Ramana, you make me laugh: When was the last time I heard the word “Sitzfleisch”? Love it.

    I won’t try and talk you out of weighing yourself. However, I find a mirror will tell you all you need to know. And don’t forget: Muscle weighs in heavier than flab.

    I shall refrain from making a comment on Conrad and his jeanious thunder. It might be misconstrued.

    I resolved to “kick the butt” several times and succeeded several times ! No , no I am not hinting ! Far be it for me to preach what I don’t practice ! : )

    Just log what you eat RR. Just that. Works wonders when you can measure your calorie intake. And this loads on to the ipod as well as the browser and stays synced.

  10. I enjoy this juxtaposed with Padmini’s disavowal of any resolutions whatsoever. I support you both!
