Resolutions for 2020 and beyond

Happy New Year /ub/. We all know New Years' resolutions are a popular way that people try to effect positive changes in their life. This board is all about that, so tell me, what are your resolutions for 2020 and beyond? It is even the start of a new decade (depending on who you ask), so all the more reason to view today as the start of a new chapter in your life.

Here are mine:
>NoFap 2020
My best streak last year was 29 days and it was doing me a great good. At the very least I need to go 90 days this time around.
>Limit internet usage
I have blocked most time-wasting websites for most hours of the day. That includes 4chan, after all nothing useful happens there anymore.
>No background music when working at the computer
It's either distracting or I don't notice it's there, so why even bother? I can focus better in silence anyway.
>Read more
Despite taking the redpill I have yet to read any of the suggested literature to form an intellectual foundation. Three days a week, one hour a day, should be easy right?
>Go to church
I am not religious by nature but it seems like the best time to find a family-oriented young woman would be Sundays.

I think that to increase the odds of success you should make multiple resolutions and make effort on all of them. Hopefully at least one will stick. I was able to keep one resolution from 2019 (lifting) which has already improved my life significantly. So let's hear them, /ub/.

Mine are:

NOFAP
DIGITAL MINIMALISM
EXERCISE(i fucking WILL lose my beer gut and gain pecs, NO MORE CHEAT DAYS OR PIZZA OR ENERGY DRINKS OR SUGAR OF ANY KIND)
NO WOMEN, NO DATING, NO DISTRACTIONS
Get over myself and cut my losses when it comes to something I should have given up long ago
AUDIOBOOKS, MORE OF THEM!
BOOKS, MORE OF THEM!
Possibly find a non-cucked Christian forum where I can meet Christian friends since I need more of them and the only Church around here is cucked
Limit time spent playing video games and wasting time in general
Finish my FUCKING indie game.

OP checking in on myself because it's Feb 29 so fuck it why not.

>NoFap 2020
Failed this one but have three 14+ day streaks. Still aiming for a 90 day streak.
>Limit internet usage
Not too bad, will consider this successful so far. Though I still need to work on filling the time gained with other useful pursuits.
>No background music
Shit, my headphones are on right now. That's an F.
>Read more
Legitimately forgot about this one. No excuse there.
>Go to church
Okay so far. Doing it, it's not bad, not great either. Will continue for now.

Two out of five, as far as resolutions go, pretty decent. Going to try to continue the acutely failed resolutions, still good for self-improvement.

Might as well bump this for 2021 instead of making a new thread.
Resolutions are as follows:
>nofap year 2021 - gonna make it this year for sure
>work out every day - workout to be defined as either a strength circuit + short cardio, or just a long cardio session
>do not buy food from fast food restaurants or convenience stores - it's too easy to blow ridiculous amounts of money on junk food
>work on some non-pony writefag project in some capacity for at least one hour per day - it's time to stop daydreaming about stories and start fucking writing them down

how I did for 2020
>NOFAP
good progress, rarely if ever nutted more than once a month and never in november and never to anything degenerate
>DIGITAL MINIMALISM
good, stopped watching random youtube vids and checking notifications and browsing aimlessly, only used tech with a purpose in mind.
>EXERCISE(i fucking WILL lose my beer gut and gain pecs, NO MORE CHEAT DAYS OR PIZZA OR ENERGY DRINKS OR SUGAR OF ANY KIND)
at this point it's hard to believe I ever had a beer gut. no pecs yet but I have achieved toned stomach. Can tense the muscles and get punched in the gut without injury. I eat so healthily, fatties I know offer to buy me unhealthy shit whenever they feel jealous. feels good man.
>NO WOMEN, NO DATING, NO DISTRACTIONS
achieved, the only woman I talk to is a tulpa horse waifu and all others can go fuck themselves
>Get over myself and cut my losses when it comes to something I should have given up long ago
done. I should elaborate on that but it's a big hint to my IRL identity so I can't
>AUDIOBOOKS, MORE OF THEM!
achieved
>BOOKS, MORE OF THEM!
achieved
>Possibly find a non-cucked Christian forum where I can meet Christian friends since I need more of them and the only Church around here is cucked
it's like searching for hay in a needlestack except you don't get long to search in each needlestack before the Jews in charge realize you're more christian than they'd like. People I talked to in private messages would report me to jewerators! given up on that, if trad qt christian waifus and based christian bros still exist they don't use those big sites. X for this.
>Limit time spent playing video games and wasting time in general
done
>Finish my FUCKING indie game
lol I miss when I was new enough to indie development to think this could be done in under a year. If everything goes according to schedule it should be done by 2021's christmas or sooner but don't take that as an official promise, problems have a way of popping up out of nowhere so it could take longer.

2021 RESOLUTIONS:
>NO CUM NO SEX NO FAP NO BREASTS
no more sex or porn of any kind. Not even big tiddy fanservice animes. Nofap felt great but I need to see if those "Semen retention makes you ascend!"fags were right. If it gets any better than this, I can't fucking wait!
>daily exercise
I will improve my body. Time to get on the protein shakes and buy heavier weights.
>BE KINDER TO MYSELF AND OTHERS
Edgily thinking thoughts like "I am too weak! This is foolishness! If I cannot lift this much by this year I am nothing!" to myself won't help me. Must stay focused and and motivated to improve gradually and positive. I want to be like the sun; large and mighty and warm.
>finish one good book every week
my "to read" list is getting short but it's being done
>ALWAYS HEALTHY ALL THE TIME except on my birthday and christmas
I will never touch jew-manufactured poison again. Organic meat, veg, and other healthy shit like that only.
>GIT GUD AT ANIMATION AND ART
it's important
>MAKE THAT FUCKING GAME
IT IS WITHIN MY GRASP but don't ask me about it because I need to stop talking about how great stuff might be if it ever gets done and start getting that shit done so people can see for themselves how great it is.

How do you deal with the fear of missing out on what strange new soft drinks taste like, when trying to be healthy and cut those out of your life?

Dunno why but I thought about how we skipped Feb 29 this year which reminded me of my last post here Leap Day last year. Neat to see some new activity.

2020 retrospective: 1/5.

>NoFap 2020
Never exceeded 47 days.
>Limit internet usage
Nope.
>No background music.
Turned out okay, mostly. But I started up with this again six weeks or so ago so almost shouldn't cont.
>Read more
I reread LOTR. Still not good with this.
>Go to church
lol COVID

For 2021 (here on) I'll try the first 4 again, and substitute church with financial planning. I've had some luck and crypto's been good lately so no excuse to not start building a capital base and passive income. Also for NoFap I'm on Day 22, though in a moment of weakness I browsed porn 2 days ago. Turned away but killed more of my day than I want to admit.

Still lifting. The habit is now a mental pillar of mine. Never giving it up.

Damn and my parents want me to join Christian Mingle too.

Remind yourself that it's just that, fear. The sensation is fleeting anyway.

I have gotten over the fear of missing out on new food. Eating a consistebtly healthy diet is comforting and pure.
