Resolutions

New Year’s Day… now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual. – Mark Twain

Time for everyones favorite time of the year: Resolution time. Aka self denial time/ lie to yourself time.

And while I am sure this year wont be any different I am going to try just the same. This year I am going to try to take some of the loose fitting goals I have been playing with for the last few months and turn them into real resolutions. Some Ddo related others less so. So to the list.

Take more time to play the “end game”. Seeing as the only times over the last year I took to play in the end game was when Samius was big enough to do a few epics and/or a raid or two on the way to the TR tree. So more should be easy. As you know I have been readying my bard for epics and what not. She is all flagged and ready to go. And I am going to use Tuesday nights for a while to do epics and whatnot with her.

Wrap up Samius’s TRing. Okay more like get the completionest feat then finish Sam. I have 4 or 5 lives left until I can take it, at 6- 7 weeks a life I should be well with my scope to be done in a year.

Do some more reading. I am keeping this one kinda vague. I have a lot of different things I want to read. And now that I have my tablet and phone to read with taking 15 to read is a lot easier then ever. And I was tricked into resubing my Marvel sub, what they are comic BOOKS! They count. Yes they do! I along with a more then a few other people were lead to believe that the new Droid reader would allow us to read the sub books, but you still can’t. Need to get with Fopo on the right Flash plug in to get it to work on my tablet’s browser…..

Have a new look by Gencon. I am growing my hair back out, that includes my facial hair aswell. It started off as my normal long time between shaves and pushing my hair cuts back. And then No Save November hit and that was a good reason for work to let it slide a little more. Now it is long enough and I have had it long enough that no one asks any more. But really I want to look more like my drawing that Clank did for me. That is normal right?

As part of this new look I have been watching what I eat trying to getting to a better weight. Cutting out the soda for the last year has really helped. Just not enough. So as of Jan one I am Peleo. Yep I am a cave man. There is only three real issues with going cave man for me. One no Bacon. Okay less bacon is how it is going to work. No corn, pop corn is my main snack, but I think I can replace it with coconut. And lessen the salt. Which why bacon is an issue. But here is the thing. I can’t smell. So I “need” a lot of salt to flavor my food so it has a taste.

I take it back there is a fourth issue with the new diet. It involves lot of sea food and game animals. All of which I love to eat. But my wife doesn’t. And the smell bothers her a lot. So making her unhappy so I can eat is an issue.

So do you have a list? Or do you have any tips eating cave man style? Use the comments.

  1. I suggest veggie bacon. Give it a try, you might be surprised…

    Resolutions: Actually have one million plat on a character. Cap out my TR’d character, then run more epics. Roll up a sorc or wiz, as that’s one of the only classes I’ve not played.

  2. Never heard of the Paleo diet. Just read up on it. Interesting.

    What kinds of exercise are you involved in? I’ve always found that exercise dramatically affects weight loss in my own body. I hate watching the foods that I eat, so I just exercise more when I want to shed some weight. :))

    • I am not really an exercise guy. When I was a kid I walked everywhere and cut/split firewood almost daily. As an adult I got lazy, and kept my soda intake high. *pats Mt. Dew reserves* But I have been working on different projects and lots of them involve some degree of activity. Some less then others. Like I will be building a larger aquapoincs system for the summer with a green house (maybe) and my own chicken coop as well as helping different areas become helpful for prep storage. Also as the weather gets nice, I hope little Qwynn will be willing to do some walking and whatnot. 🙂

  3. “I don’t eat anything with a face! Fortunately, I’ve never seen a face in my steak…”

    I resolved years ago to never make a resolution. so far, so good.
