Try one new recipe a week, even something easy like a dip.

Exercise inside on treadmill or use YouTube videos to move if I cannot walk outside.

Continue to clean out old clothes, magazines, kitchen items and general stuff I will not use (I do this in "littles", one drawer or closet at a time).

That is what I do - one drawer at a time. It really helps.

When dh loses his temper (lack of patience) I will just smile at him or pat him on the back. Maybe tell him to calm down, it will be okay. I will not lecture him or get involved in a shouting match about his temper. I do not always have to speak up; I can choose to remain calm and detached.

I will not get all stressed out when any stupid "customer service" phone person puts me on HOLD for an hour. Or when I have to fight an insurance company or any other unreasonable business that doesn't care about its customers. It WILL work out. As above" I can choose to remain calm.

Looks like I'm vowing to be more relaxed in 2017.

I think telling an upset person to 'calm down' is one of the very worst approaches, in_newengland. Your other approaches to the temper problem sound great though :-)

Join a gym again and try to go twice a week... Unless the weather is nice and we go for a hike somewhere. I used to be in halfway decent shape but haven't worked out in almost 2 years and boy, does it show.

Had hip replacement surgery on Dec 19th. Been restricted for so long, goal is to get back to normal, and then let that lead to some weight loss and more energy.

I stopped making resolutions a long time ago, but now I have more time so I have a list I made today:
1. Learn to type
2. I started walking for health so I want to keep doing 10K steps 5x per week for the whole year.
3. Get my Bench press back up to 315lb plus. I had surgery then got really sick and lost a lot of weight and strength.
4. Buy a house for myself this year and buy 5 more rental houses.
5. Have a $50K reserve by the end of the year
6. Plan world travel trips to do after the reserve is built up
7. I just moved to Atlanta a year ago and don't know hardly anyone. So My goal is to make more effort to make new friends.
I feel pretty good that I can get to at least 80% of my goals.
