Those evasive resolutions for the year

I don’t seem to have updated these since July, which although I can’t quite believe, there’s not a lot I can do about it now…

Anyway here they are today, as I don’t think I’ll have a chance to do them next weekend, what with NaNoWriMo and promos and stuff…


Water consumption (in litres):

Have pretty much failed abysmally here, I was keeping on track for a while but then it fell apart.

Weight loss (in kilos):

The muscle growth is still affecting this but it’s dropping anyway!

Exercise (twice a week):

There have been chats about this in terms of what a session is, we usually talk about a session of fitness in terms of one hour (as practised in gyms and the like). If we are counting my three hour bike rides as three sessions then the bottom shiny bar applies. If however we are looking at the strict one session = one session rule, regardless of how long you are out for, then the top shiny bar applies.

This is still do-able although Australia and preparation for the book just before put a big dent in it all. etina has been pushing me with runs over the last two weeks though…


Move home:
Not a chance, there have been so many other things taking priority and we have to give the agency three months notice before we leave.

Meet 5 people on flist:

Bye bye sucker, yet another that makes its last appearance here (until the December assessment)!

Films seen:

Another one off the list, although this one is not that impressive, being as it is such a paltry goal… oh well.


Books read:

This has been getting worse as the weeks are going on. I complained about being eight behind last time and now it’s thirteen. It’s not going to happen is it?

Dickens books:

Short Stories:

I need to double check this, as my stats haven’t been updated for a while. It’s not looking do-able though as I’m only working on one and the novel starts soon.

ASif reviews:

5 / 12

I’ve just written one that needs editing and I’m reading one that’s for this but not as good as planned.

SF Reader reviews:

Not happy with this one, seem to have been stuck on one of the reviews and it won’t let me go!

Edit book:
Knocked on the head, just not gonna happen. Going to write a book instead… squee!

Ups and downs here but as the beginning of December’s chart should look a little lighter, I can maybe concentrate on what’s left as there’s only a few guaranteed failures.

*writes a to-do list*
