Resolutions 2007

Yep, time for another yearly installment of Crap I Ought To Do But Probably Won't.

Lose Weight. Hey, this one keeps coming up, doesn't it? As of Saturday I weighed 236 pounds. My goal is 175. I could live with 185. The mechanism this time is Weight Watchers, courtesy of some materials I didn't pay for. (Hm, maybe I ought to add "No Pirating" too. But I think resolutions should only be things we intend to keep.)

Anyway, the idea behind this one is to lose weight slowly and without cutting certain foods completely out of your diet. Sounds crazy enough to work. In addition to a book that lists common fast-food selections with their "point" listing, they also give a little slide rule-type thing that lets you compare the Calories, fat and fiber in a serving of food to figure out points. As one of my friends said, maybe the trick is that you get tired of doing the math, say "fuck it" and just don't bother eating.

So there we go. I want to lose at least 50 pounds, preferably 60.

Buy/lease a new car. This one's more of a necessity than a resolution, since I don't think the car can pass inspection any more, but I'll put it here just so I can succeed in at least one of these things.

Learn at least one of the .NET CLR languages. "Classic" ASP still has some life left in it, but it's been showing its age for quite a while. I really ought to start developing in ASP.NET, but I can't until I actually know what I'm doing. There was a .NET seminar I went to in Pittsburgh, when I worked at Brady, before I started blogging and when .NET was still a new and exciting thing. I remember not being terribly impressed with it then, but I may have been missing something. So I'll give it a shot, if I ever remember to look online during a time when I can actually sign up.
