2018 Resolutions ?
« on: December 28, 2017, 10:50:26 PM »
The year is drawing to a close. It's time to chalk out a plan for the next year. I've had 5 months of poor eating and bad numbers. Though the change in Calendar doesn't really matter, I plan to eat much more wisely and get my numbers back into range. I've already made a start to that end.

Towards the end of Jan, we've planned one last trip to Oman. My cousin is being transferred to Brunei and we won't be going to Oman any more. This time I will accompany him and a few others into a desert trip known as Wahiba Challenge. We will drive through desert and dune bashing for around 48 hours. I'm looking forward to it and need to improve my fitness levels. That's the other thing that I need to do ASAP.

Well, I'm not really good at New Years resolutions.  I tend to ignore them a short time after I make them !  I do need to try and get into an exercise routine for my knees and I am really bad at that.  Going to start now and see if I can keep it up.
SKB, enjoy your trip.  Dune bashing used to be a favorite recreation for me and my friends.  Have a ball.

Not much of a resolution person here either. I do need to find a new pcp so that is on my list for 2018 and I will be finishing with my Oncologist in 2018 also so that is a very good thing.

skb that trip sounds like a lot of fun!!

I'm so poor on resolutions that I hadn't even thought about it until you brought it up!  ::)

The top resolution would be to make a resolution  ;)

But on a more serious note, my list would start from a change of jobs. It's not easy in my work but I'll try.

@skb Good Luck & Have fun. That is a fun thing to do.
My life is based on a true story.

Rocky, it's not easy to change jobs but a couple of times when I did it turned out to be a good move.  Best of luck in finding a better opportunity.
