Not My New Year Resolutions!

Updated on December 30, 2018

New Year Resolutions. Who would have them? Well not me! Here's what not to do!

Couch potato fat slob eating lazy #lazy #couchpotato
Couch potato fat slob eating lazy #lazy #couchpotato

Ah Well......

So this is it.

That time of the year when we all decide on how clever we are going to be. Get fit, go on a diet and so on. But what if we don't want to do anything? Stuff the turkey, stuff the holiday and yep stuff those New Year Resolutions!

So for all of you planning on being a much better person this year, well, good luck on that, I am going to chill out and..........

Not Really The Way To Do It.......

#Funny #gym
#Funny #gym

Not Go To The Gym...

Why? Because its a complete waste of time and money. Lets face it, we go out and buy an expensive tracksuit or shorts so that we can look 'good' in front of the other suckers.

We then turn up on time, puff our way through the induction to make sure you are not going to have a heart attack, fall over, pass out, bash your legs, knees, knuckles etc on the workout machines and then they let you loose.

So, first of all you head for the running machine. Yes, you do great on that! All of three minutes then you need to use your Asthma inhaler, or lets face it head out for a cigarette......

Then back to the track! Round and round we go, where we end up nobody knows.

Ah yes, then to the counter to pay the bill.

25 dollars for a session and three more free. You head home feeling great.

Well at least for five minutes.

After that you hit the bed and stay there eating cream cakes and chocolate and moaning at all the aches and pains.

Never again.

Me on the other hand? Feet up, watching TV!

Yes! Now That's How You Do It.....So Easy On The Legs!

#Highheels #Gym

Not go on a diet....

I mean what's the point?

For starters you have already put on 10 pounds after stuffing yourself with Christmas Turkey, pud and chocolates. Do you really think a non meat, non veg, vegan, egg free diet is going to work?

You have never ever in your whole life been skinny! Do you honestly think that now you are older its going to fall off you and you will end up looking like those tiny models that strut about the stage showing off their legs while flashing new clothes?

Don't make me laugh.

All you will end up doing is heading for the fridge at 3 am trying to convince yourself that actually the Chocolate German Gateau at 3,000 calories a slice will not stick to your hips just because, well, you know, sleeping burns calories? Really?


I am gonna chew my way through half a cow on New Years day. Eat a ton of spuds and laugh myself silly as I drink a bottle of Baileys! Ooh yum!

Well There Is That.......

Who Clanged The Car....?

Great Exercise though!!
Great Exercise though!!

Be Extra Nice To People.....?

Because, well why?

My New Year Resolution is to be nice to people? Since when? And more to the point will they be nice to you? Of course not.

Try going into that shop just as they are closing and see how nice they are. Oh and when you clang their car, do they smile?

Well do they?

No, not on your life. In fact while running down the road with a great big burly man chasing you, and you are puffing away like an old steam train you can bet your bottom dollar that no, he is definitely not smiling.........

Wasn't my fault honest. I mean, he shouldn't have pulled out near my drive. Wasn't

Well at least you could combine the car thing with exercise........!


Be careful, smile politely but sod em if they can't be bothered to smile back.

Bah Humbug.

Mine......All Mine!


Not Save Any Money....

What's the point? You all know the saying, 'Let's save for a rainy day.'

Okay, lets look at this correctly. You go to work, put a bit aside and....

Along comes your phone Bill, electricity goes up, your son/daughter 'needs a loan of over 500 dollars' Because they 'Desperately need a new.....insert whatever.

And where does that leave you? Broke as usual.

Bang goes the holiday, new car, clothes, jewelry and so on.

So sod that.

Earn it, spend it is my new motto for the New Year. And then laugh when someone says, 'Please can I borrow.....?' And you can shout NO! Can't sorry, broke......Heehee!

Me? I am going to get paid and then hit the clothes shops, jewelry...need a new hair cut....oh, and books, lots of books.....maybe a DVD...

And then?

Maybe a day trip somewhere....for me......and only me.....Ha.!

So, In A Nutshell......

I am going to slob out, eat loads of calorific food, growl at everybody and splash my money out on me!

Bah Humbug....Scrooge....yep!

I hope you all have a very....

Happy New Year!

      Well, I did already comment Nell but it hasn't appeared, so just reconfirming that I love your sense of humour and this made me laugh, even though the points you make are oh so true. I gave up making resolutions because something always happens to upset them. I have a good idea for a diet though...sleep until 11am and then have brunch (combining brekkie and lunch) that way cutting out one meal daily.

      Hi, Nell,

      Love your amusing fatalism here. But it is all so true. I like to make resolutions I can stick to all life long. You know: I will not run out into a busy highway during rush hour; I will not jump from a plane at so many thousands of feet without a parachute; I will not try to handle rattlesnakes during a worship ceremony. (That really happens at some charismatic churches here in the U.S. although I think it is illegal.) These are practical and add to life expectancy.

      However, I thoroughly enjoyed your take on the resolutions we make which are absolutely absurd.

      Thanks for giving me a good New Year laugh.

      Much respect across the ocean,

      and eat some wonderful chocolates for all of us. (Yum!) I know I will.

      Ahhhh Nell, my friend. A woman after my own heart! I say Piss on it!! Resolutions are for the anal retentive....There's absolutely nothing wrong with me, just the way I am!

      I'll eat what I damned-well please and what??! Go for a brisk walk?? It's time for my nap. Get outta my way! Save money? Yeah sure, WHAT money??! How do we save what we do not have?

      Get more organized? Ha!! Tell you what....YOU organize for both of us. I like clutter!!

      New Year's ASS!!! Leave me be in my happy place!!

      This is a riot, Nell and so true! I don't think I've ever made a New Year's resolution - ever! What's the point? And why do we think we only need to take a look at bettering ourselves on January 1st?

      I like me just the way I am, so I resolve to not resolve!

      Happy New Year, Nell! Thanks for the laugh.

      Hi, Nell. I like your attitude. I don't make New Year's resolutions either because three days later I can't remember them or the location of the piece of paper I wrote them down on. There is one resolution that I can make that I promise I won't break: that is to read, read, read. I'm addicted to reading, so I promise to keep on reading. LOL

      BTW, the bit about never being skinny. I was Twiggy before the world ever heard of her. I weighed 85 lbs. on my wedding day (1st wedding). So I've gained 45 lbs since then. Hey, I'm proud of every pound of it and I plan to keep it!

      I like your style. Why bother when we know where this is headed in two weeks? My husband got me an Apple Watch for Christmas to motivate me to exercise. It's got to come from the inside, but the watch is cute if I can figure out how to truly work the thing.

      That reminds me, I need to go to the store to buy some Bailey's. And even though I just made myself a nice, nutritious smoothie, I'm eyeing the bag of chips next to the blender---and I'm 95% sure I'm going to give in and have a bowl. Sigh. I try to do good, but it all seems for naught.

      Anyhoo, I love your sense of humor, Nell, and I know I'm not the only one who can relate to this hilarious article. Hahaha!

      I'll be laughing the rest of the day about this dose of reality and truth. Why make resolutions when I know I'm going to break them within days? That just sets me up for disappointments. I took a look at my gut in the mirror this morning; no way is that going to disappear, so SCREW IT! lol Happy New Year, Nell!
