10 Tips For Getting Fit In The New Year

Most people greet the start of the New Year with a vow to get in shape ... Every. Year. And every year the gym is crowded with "resolutionaries" who show up, sweat all over everything for a few weeks, and then are never seen again. The best way to avoid that is to figure out what usually…

Mind Of Man: My New Year’s Resolution

My New Years resolution is to be less stupid. I don’t usually make New Years resolutions, or as I call them, Last Year’s regrets. Usually, I just think they're for suckers.

10 Signs You Need To Kick Off 2012 By Kicking Your Man To The Curb

For the new year, women go to extreme lengths to ditch old baggage: we clean out our closets, buy new "essential" wardrobe pieces, start looking for new jobs, vow to lose a few pounds or even get full-on makeovers.

6 New Year’s Resolutions Worth Keeping

There’s nothing wrong with vowing to lose weight or quit smoking, but as far as most New Year's resolutions go, they’re a bit tired and uninspired, don’t you think?

What Are Your New Year’s Resolutions?

I'm still contemplating my New Year's resolutions. I could make a list and make it boring, the theme being fix all the stuff I could do better. You know, like save more, scrub the toilet with greater vigor, and practice yoga daily. Or I could focus on all the dreams I'd like to accomplish --…

What’s Your Theme For 2011?

I'm not sure if I'm going to make resolutions this year. I mean, I'm not anti-resolutions. I make them every year, and sometimes I even keep them. There were a few this year I did OK on. I didn't really get going on maintaining an exercise regimen until the second half of the year, but…

7 Types Of Guys To Date In 2011

Well, 2011 is almost upon us. After a year of sluttin' it up and having a grand ol' time doing it, I feel very ready to meet someone special. A boyfriend, a partner-in-crime, if you will. With that in mind, I've already made some dating resolutions for the upcoming year, and have noted the 10

Mind Of Man: New Year’s Resolutions Are For Suckers

The New Year always makes me melancholy. If New York had moors, I’d spend the New Year sulking around the fog in a billowy shirt with a raven on my shoulder. While everyone else says “hello” to the next 12 months, I usually spend this time of year reflecting on the past 12 months. I…

What Are Your Springtime Resolutions?

Winter sucks. It's officially over now, I know, but I've found myself thinking about its long dark days now that I've been enjoying my comfortable outdoor freedom.

Mind Of Man: My New Year’s Resolution

When it comes to New Year's resolutions, I suggest aiming low. Reach for your shoelaces, not the stars. For instance, this year, I resolve to eat more donuts. Crullers, coconut, apple and spice. I can handle this and am fairly confident that come next year, I will be able to look at my fat face…

Frisky Staff Members’ New Year’s Style Resolutions

Every year we promise ourselves that things will be different in the months to come. "This year," we say, hands in the air, in a triumphant sort of gesture, "I will say no to the chain smoking, late nights and that entire box of donuts. I will read! I will go back to yoga! Three…
