I guess just to try to do more exercise. I've been in remission since November and last summer I was up and down a bit. I started going out on my bike a lot in late spring last year, strangely even when I wasn't great when I was on my bike for an hour or two I very rarely had to get to the toilet, often had to as soon as I got home though! I don't know why that would be, but I'm not complaining, and as I'm in remission now I'm trying to get out on my bike as often as I can, although the excess rain isn't helping!

So, not that it's really a resolution, I'm really trying to get on my bike at every opportunity, I even bought myself a GPS computer thing so I can review my trips!

I've resolved to make the usual resolutions... exercise, eat better, be 100% compliant with my meds, keep in touch with friends/family. But my most important resolution is to re-assess my resolution every 1st of each month. So I've basically resolved to make resolutions each month and see how I'm doing. It's like a mini-fresh start each month so that if you do lose track and fall off your goals, you can give yourself another chance at the beginning of the month. What do you guys think about that??
