vlrg_couchpotatoResolutions can be so short-lived in my life that I have an aversion to making them.  Failure is just around the corner.  Last year I made a resolution for the month of January, then February, etc.  It was much more effective for me.  Here are my resolutions for January:

  1. Read the Psalms
  2. Lose 5 pounds
  3. Exercise 5 days/week

February will look something like this:

  1. Read another book of the Bible
  2. Keep those 5 pounds off
  3. Continue exercising 5 days/week

Do you make resolutions each year?  What has worked for you?
