Well In regards to last year, I have lost over 2 stone. I am no longer going to Ballroom, because I dumped my then bf and I moved to Brighton, but I have been going to Poledance, I walk to work everyday.

My resolutions are for this year,
To continue losing weight and toning up.
To find a place I am happy to live.
Join the other dance classes I have been meaning to.
Make new friends and build a bigger social life, outside of work and my current boyfriend.

Crikey, I wrote these two years ago! I'm glad to say I did everything apart from the new job ... that came in 2010, rather than 2009 but all good! Here's my 2010 resolutions.

Take up dance course
Start and complete my work qualification
Move out into my own flat, even if just renting
Improve on my sewing and clothes customising

Tada!
And BUMP again! Happy New Year, all!

Well, I didn't take up the dance course, though I did take a few individual classes - decided to stick to swimming instead as I'm good at that ;) I moved into my own flat and my boyfriend moved in with me which is excellent. My clothes customising has improved but I'm in no way amazing at it ... yet. Work wise I've decided not to get a qualification just yet as it's not that necessary and I haven't got the money to do it.

Here are my resolutions for 2012.

Pay off credit card
Sort out pension
Get promoted or work towards that as much as possible
Keep up good work with keeping on top of finances

How about you lot?
I want to be..a tree..

I did continue with Pole, although it took me time to find a teacher that worked for me. I have been going every week for the past 6 months, and I am much more toned then I was when I started. I found somewhere I was happy to live, but now the landlord is selling up so I have to find somewhere now. I went to a few other dance classes but Pole is the dance style for me.
My social life, I am still a host for CS and I have made a great bunch of friends through that, and also through my pole classes.

This year, My resolutions are,
To find somewhere good to live,
Actually manage to invert in Pole and actually perform for people. (should happen in June)
work on saving more money.
Not get too involved with guys too soon.
Lose more weight.

I've had such a draining year this year. My new years resolution is to enjoy 2012 more than I enjoyed 2011!

I broke up with my boyfriend in January, which although was a VERY good thing, the stress of moving out of the house and separating our lives was horribly stressful. I've lost 2 jobs this year, I've been to 3 funerals and been unable to attend a further 2 (because work wouldnt give me the time off). I know I cant control whether people die or not, but it seems very unlikely I'll have another year of 5 deaths. I hope.

Anyway, I dont want to set anything too specific for this year. I want to be healthier, fitter, thinner. I want to be happier, more controlled and stronger. I want to find a job I'm happy in and not just drifting in.

I'm feeling positive today though, I've applied for 7 jobs this morning, I did 50 lengths at the pool and I've got a healthy lunch to eat now.

Here's to 2012!!!

Blimey Rufio, I can't even get into a swimsuit without help at the moment (due to recovering from hip surgery)

My resolutions are;

To try and be a bit healthier. Once my hip is a bit better, I'm going to take up Pilates.
Go to a new place and have an adventure.
Pass my driving test (the hard one!)
Bake more yummy things (the nice one!).

:D

Thanks! I've booked my theory for the end of Jan so fingers crossed. (Should be OK, I've already taken it a couple of years ago and it's expired! :oops: )

Good luck to you with yours! You'll have to let us know how you get on.

Good luck with driving! It took me SO long to pass my test, I had about a billion lessons and I took 3 tests but when I finally passed it was like the biggest weight had been lifted. I almost cried when he said I'd passed haha :) I must have looked like I was on drugs haha.

Aww...thanks Rufio! :D

I've actually never even taken the practical, and I've been learning since I was 19.

LOL! I bet I'm going to be just like that as well. I'll probably rip off my shirt and wave it around in triumph like a football player. :P
