Congratulations, you’ve almost survived another year! And with the 2012 right around the corner, it’s time to start those New Year’s Resolutions. Now, we all know that New Year’s resolutions are often made and broken within the first month of the year. But this year, we want you to think of a resolution that you might actually be able to keep. And we’re here to help by providing you with the tools to do it.
Looking to get in shape this year? Check out this Tone Fitness Kettlebell posted by DaltrysBabe23. Okay, I know this is one of those resolutions that gets made everywhere and broken after two workouts, but as a health nut I’m begging you , please, please, keep it up this year! Kettlebells are a great way to get in shape too, the workouts they provide are fast, fun, and really effective.
Going along with the health theme, it’s time to start eating better! Turn to chuffychumbles’ book Eat Fresh, Stay Healthy and make it your guide to buying and cooking fruits and vegetables! If you’re going to start eating healthy, it’s best to start at the very beginning and relearn how to pick out a solid assortment of healthy foods. Turns out, some of the things you thought were healthy may be quite the opposite and this book will serve as a wonderful guide to get you started.
Resolve to learn a new craft, such as knitting. Get started with these knitting needles from cmarooney. I mean, maybe it’s just my own desire to learn how to knit, but I’ve always felt like it would be a very useful skill to learn, especially in the colder months up here in Boston. Why not try something new this year and get a useful skill? Think of all the potential knitting has: you can make yourself a nice sweater or scarf and you’ll have something to do when you’re not swapping!
Push your limits in 2012 and resolve to do something outside of your comfort-zone, such as skydiving, using tickets posted by Emiraajeti. It’s always good to push your personal boundaries, it’s what makes you grow as a person. Now, maybe you don’t have to go so far as to go skydiving, but if you’re up for it, I’m sure it’s quite the life experience. Plus, you’ll get quite the story out of it to share with everyone in the new year.
Or try your hand at a new art in 2012 like professional quality photography. Check out this FUJI S-1 pro digital camera with a Nikon lens posted by stevebecker. It’s never too late to start learning how to take a good, quality picture. And with such a nice camera at your disposal, this is one resolution that shouldn’t be too hard to stick to.
