Resolutions and other lies.

Post by Bearbonesnorm » Mon Dec 31, 2018 12:38 pm

It's that time of year again, so what (if anything) are you vowing to take up, give up or refrain from to make you and the world better? :wink:

I generally don't tend to have many as I'm crap at sticking to them but in 2019, I WILL get my book finished and I will strive to do or say at least one pleasant thing to / for someone every day ... obviously, it'll be lost amongst all the unpleasant ones but it's a start.

Fill the book I'm writing with more content than I am currently filling my belly with.

To not drink many more GnTs and get round the New Years Day hilly 200km / 3000m I mapped out as my incentive to stay fairly sober. High stakes :grin:

Always had a good riding year following a big 1st Jan ride. Seems to set the tone for Jan-Mar then it all slots into place.

This time last year I gave up Strava, I've had 12 months of happy cycling without any external pressures.....

I urge others to do the same, it's liberating

That's very much a personal thing. It depends how you use Strava and how much you let it use you.

For me it’s
Stop being grumpy
Avoid single use plastics as much as possible
Try not to swear at other drivers bad driving
BeMoreHolly by doing my very best and taking my opportunities in life

So far i’m committed to
- Winter Bivi
- County Masters Swim Competition
- HT550 ITT
- Finishing learning to dive (Open Water)
- Shooting with Brother in Law

And more to fit in between e.g. WRT etc
2924 miles per Gallon
