New Years Revolutions/Evolutions

It's an Evolution not a Revolution....

I have been encouraged to post my New Year's Resolutions, so here they are in not particular order.

Going to the Gym
I resolve that I will continue to lose weight this year.  I have lost 37 lbs so far since September.  My primary goal is to get to 185 lbs by April.
Building Some Muscle
I resolve to make my arms bigger, legs more solid, and chest and shoulders more defined.
Playing Lord of the Rings
 I resolve to badger Steve until we do this!!!  I am really jazzed about playing through the campaigns for the Fellowship of the Ring.  I have wondered if this is a good system, and I liked what I read.  Steve and I are going to make some terrain and try out each of the battles.  That's one plan, anyway!
Resolved... I will continue to learn from my mistakes and work towards being as competitive and knowledgeable as I can.
I resolve to read the rules to at least one war-game a month and to try to play them.  Prezcon will be a great start, but I want to get back to my first gaming experiences which were war-games.
Building Confidence
I resolve to continue to work on my attitude, especially about how I see myself.
Dungeons and Dragons
I resolve to run the best D and D campaign I can.  I will look for ways to make it exciting and interesting while allowing players the freedom to make choices.  I resolve that their actions will affect the world they are in.
I resolve to make more terrain for gaming.  I will hone my skills at card-stock terrain making.  
My Friends
I resolve that I will be a better friend.  I will look for ways to build others up and help them see the difference they make.  I will learn how to whine less and be thankful more.
I resolve to organize my games and purge those games that I won't play any more.  I am especially keen to go through all the ccg cards I have and do something with them.

Another Win

Played Monpoc last Monday with Stewart at the Family Games Store.  He chose Cyber Khan and I chose Gorgahadratron.  Both are Ubercorp monsters.  It started off with a bang.  On my first or second monster activation, I ran across the board and smashed him into oblivion.  From there it was a quick journey to destruction.
I still have a lot to learn about unit play.  I am not nearly as effective with my units as I should be.  Maybe I will take an older monster next time, so I can focus on my units.  It would help if I knew all the abilities of the pieces by sight.  There are like a million of them.  :)
I am seriously considering changing my blog name, now that I am on a winning streak.
More to come....
