What are they? Some people don't buy into turning over a new leaf every January, I don't really either. Instead I use this time as a one of the three times in the year to look over my goals and reevaluate them.

"Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21
"I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

so what are your bodybuilding goals...?
to be 170 and 10% by this time next year.
I'm 177 and 17% (estimated) as of this writing. Will bulk until about 200 or thereabouts and then cut. We'll see though.
Short term goal: to get to 100 on bench (unassisted, one full set), 135 on squat (unassisted, one full set) and 95 on deads respectively (one full set).
Cut, bulk, get CCNA. 'Nuff said.
Too cool for school.
To get to 220lbs (I only have about 10lbs to go)...
I definitely made this goal and then some (currently closer to 230lbs).

"It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"
"Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

To avoid the gym at all costs so I don't have to deal with all the god damn new years resolution people there.
-get huge (bulk like a fat man eating his donuts)

-get my motorcycle and be a wannabe stunter (well the stunting is a stretch but would like to be able to ride)
-start taking HGH, and different kind of steriods (jk, would prefer to get massive the natural way)
