Last year I told myself I would try and live healthier. I started going to the gym once a week. I took a month off due to this last past holiday season, but other than that I went at least once a week. I also started eating healthier minus that month as well.

Now I'm back to eat better again and hitting the gym back up. Today I made scrambled eggs for breakfast no salt nothing else just straight eggs. smile.gif Feels great to get back on that path!

The usual, eat healthier, lose weight laugh.gif

Well, this time I have a written down plan, written down goals and I'm committed, losing weight is my No. 1 priority.

Other than that, I first have to fully recover from the flu...so I can't do sports at the moment.

that's why I play guitar a lot...I wanna tackle and master some more advanced GMC lessons this year and become a more well-rounded solo player. I know I have developed quite a bit last year even though I didn't really pay attention to technique practice. This year, I will become even better and practice with a good routine.

I like the word goal rather than a reslutions
coming up on 5 years at Gmc, joining was to help me with speed picking, mainly outside picking . On a good day I might be able to play 16th's at 130- my goal being 180.( I can sometimes do short bursts in certain scales but I want to be able increase that endurance

learning how to build a building business in this junk our ruling class calls a recovery
they just passed a bill( to protect the middle class they say)to tax people earning over 450,000, but what hey failed to mention is that they did not renew a payroll tax exemption that will cost the middle class an average 70 dollars a month( yeah government)

on the lighter side
we are expecting a new baby Jan. 13th and as of right now my wife and seven kids all have the flu( lucky for me this strain is not inducing vomit rolleyes.gif )

This year will be

Get back into good shape, I have my diet and workout plan ready to start.

Work on guitar technique and composition, both in solo-ing and rhythm parts, and also really start to nail down theory on the fretboard, studying triads and arpeggios etc. I want my note choices to be deliberate rather than guess work or just pattern based


Get an EP recorded.

Also I want to really help and support my wife with her goals

well since joining gmc last year and getting my eyes opened and realising what it takes to become a decent guitarist, I just want to get consistent practising done over the next year and be one more step closer to awesome.

I have a few of specific goals which I want to blast through on my way:
There's a couple of Cosmins lessons which require me to be better at bending..... I wanna get those nailed!
Gabes Black Sabbath lesson ( the reason I joined gmc! ) - I need to increase my playing of that lesson by about 15 BPM to get it at the correct speed. I dunno if that is achievable in a year but I aim to do my best.
Ive got into writing songs lately so I really want to continue with that and learn more about analysing other songs and be able to understand how they are put together.

As for things outside music? meh..... I'll just leave that part of my life to the usual chaos that it is cool.gif
