  1. Liz Lemon :

    Resolution #1 be a nicer mom. Not sure if this would help me accomplish that or not, but it would be a fun way to exercise!!

  2. Robyn :

    Well, to be honest I haven’t sat down and written any goals, but I want to be more active, lose weight and get financially smarter.

  3. ellen patton :

    Cool giveaway. One resolution is to use the fabric I have already. We’ll see how that goes. Oh and lose a few pounds.

  4. Jen McDonald :

    I’m still figuring out my resolutions, but one will for sure have something to do with spending more time doing fun things with my kids.

  5. kimberly :

    i know i’m crazy, but my resolution is not to drink any soda for 2011. i’m trying to console myself my thinking of all the money i’ll save…
    wish me luck!

  6. Regina :

    I love to ski but have not been since the birth of my twins. Do I really need to admit to you how old they are now? No. I think not. We hope to take them skiing soon. :)

  7. Christy :

    I didn’t make any resolutions this year but I’m always working on being more awesome. I’m also a sucker for video games. Always have been. *crossing fingers*

  8. Donna Hansen :

    My kids would love Wii Sports Resort! I don’t do new year’s resolutions altho I did regoal my goal of going to the gym 3+ times a week, but that’s because December’s busy & I didn’t get there enough.

  9. Jerilee E. :

    Only one goal so far- to finish my first marathon… Ogden, May 2011!! Here’s to hoping I survive!

  10. Karen :

    My New Year’s Resolution is to get back in shape – run as many races as I can… :D
    My girls would love Wii Sports Resort! They love the fencing portion of the game.

  11. Bernadette :

    Ah, such a cool giveaway! One of my New Year’s resolutions was to get out and explore a new town each moth with my little family. I’d love to pass along to my son, my travel bug, and get him all excited about what could be across the globe or even just around the corner :)

  12. Andria :

    One of my goals for the New Year is to approach life and each situation with an understanding heart rather than getting all worked up about something.

  13. Melanie :

    Our family just got a Wii for Christmas, and one of my goals (I really hate the word “resolution”) for 2011 is to log some fun exercise time on there. Plus, I love, love, love the Biggest Loser! Was just saying last night that the TV show should be a “work out while you watch” show with prompts every few minutes. Anyway, love your blog!

  14. Kimm :

    I am hoping that we can all be healthier as a family. Less junk, more fresh produce, scratch made food, which brings me to resolution #2. Be more domestic, more cleaning, cooking and all around good wifery. (I made the word wifery up and I am totally OK with that.)

  15. Cathy :

    I’ve got no resolutions, but I do like games.

  16. Trisha C :

  25. Lindsey :

    Get in shape, eat healthy and finish applying to school!

  26. Krista :

    I figure since you gave me a DSI, I better try and win some more games! I don’t do resolutions, I try to set some goals, pretty much standard fare, lose weight, eat healthy, tell those I care about how I feel about them more often!
    PS: my son was over the moon about his DSI on Christmas morning!

  27. Erica :

    My resolution is to get off my butt and use our Kinect so I can feel my best when I get married in July!

  28. Ash :

    I think I have a better chance of winning this giveaway.

  29. Lori :

    My resolution is to be more on top of things and then everything won’t be so DARNED overwhelming all of the time. So far, so good. 5 days is a pretty good streak for me… however, Christmas decor is still up. DOH!

  30. Elizabeth N :

  35. annemarie :

    i resolve to exercise three times a week and finish fixing my bike so i can use it to commute and double up: exercise AND pollute less! and save money, too.

    I haven’t settled on my new year’s resolutions, but I’m going to try and slow it down a little so I can appreciate more and stress less. A girl can dream….

  42. Jessica Mae :

    I would love to win those!! Every past year my resolution has been to lose weigh and make my body one to love. This year I’m resoluting to not change my body so my mind can be happy with it, but change my mind so I can be happy with my body. If I lose weight in the process wonderful, if not I’ll still be happy with the body I’ve got.

    You always have such awesom giveaways!
    one of my resolutions is to get back on track healthwise… not just loose weight but make sure i am sleeping enough and taking time for myself!

  52. Peter S :

    EA Sports Active 2.0 sounds really cool. I want to lose 10 pounds of fat over the next two months. If I can do that, I’ll continue and try to repeat that. (I’ll work on it regardless, but want to get that much done.)

    I also want to work on presenting a tech session for the SQL groups. I learn more and hopefully pass on something useful to others.

  53. Sara :

    Oh boy, count me in!

    (New Years Resolution – NO MORE LIBRARY LATE FEES!!)

    My fitness goal is to run a minimum of 500 miles in 2011. It is realistic and acheivable, and is doing my body good.

  60. Emily :

    I’m definitely working on getting back to exercising regularly after the craziness of the holidays! This would certainly help.

  61. Ashley :

    My resolution is to work out at least 3 times a week.

    Definitely would help with my resolution, get back to my pre-baby weight. I’ve actually wanted a few of these games so I hope I win.

  65. Alecia :

    To live in the moment. I’m so busy running around, prepping for tomorrow…that I often miss those special moments today.

  66. Melissa :

    more yoga, lots more yoga, no more yogi bear.

  67. Mike :

    My kids and I do like some Wii time during these cold winter months!

  68. Shari :

    I don’t do resolutions… I have never seen anyone ever keep one.
    But I do have goals, that I have been working on for awhile now, and one is to be more proactive in improving and maintaining my good health. =)

  69. Heidi E :

    Well, for once in my life at the beginning of a new year I am not stressing about my body or weight. Yay! I quite like how i’m looking these days. My mom introduced me to a way of eating that is awesome and helped me lose all my baby weight. Good stuff! So this year I am hoping to focus more on quality time with my kids! It’s not really that hard but I’m a woman and it’s easy to give myself a guilt trip. So wish me luck!

  70. Tracy Miller :

    Resolution: To love food just a little bit less. It is the only thing I can come up with to help shed a couple of pounds…but the chances of that happening: slim to none.

  71. Victoria S. :

    I resolve to clean my desk off. Probably won’t last but every once in a while I finally break down and do it.

  72. Karen :

    Always at the top of the list is to be healthier (lose weight, get to the gym more often, etc) and then for the 3rd year in a row – develop a budget. I don’t know why I keep putting it off – maybe I don’t want to see how much we actually spend on stupid stuff!

  73. Cassie Jowers :

    Drink more water. Just choke it down!

  74. Chrissy :

    Of course I have the typical resolutions but I really want to find joy in my life and to make each day meaningful. And try to bake more!

  75. patricia :

    I would love to win this! My hubby is addicted to video games and we are both addicted to sweets…losing weight is on our “resolution” list, and our little boy would join in on the fun too =)

  76. Veronica P :

    This is great! I’d love to win. I’ve been meaning to check out some of the fitness games.

    I don’t typically make resolutions but I am looking to live more purposefully this year, make my marriage a priority and read more.

  77. Tina :

    Get on Biggest Loser to have Jillian Michaels kick my butt into shape… Or just get her games so she can kick my butt at home. Yelling through the tv is just so less threatening though.

  78. Erin Browne :

    My New Year’s resolution is to love myself more.. work less, stress less, play more!

  79. Tricia :

    I’m boring: My NYR is to lose weight. But I’m actually doing it! Well, one week in.

  80. nicole b. :

    since we are pretty much holed up for the winter, being among the few non-skiers/non-snowboarders in Utah (which has helped us avoid accidents like yours, but also means we don’t get as much exercise as we should), Santa brought us a new xbox kinect, our first venture into video games. so exercising via video games is one of our family goals this winter.

  81. renee :

    ooOOoo–great giveaway! I have resolved to actually use my weight loss equipment instead of looking at it everyday and saying, “I should really use that sometime.” I worked out with my Biggest Loser game today, so I’m off to a moderate start :)

  85. Juleen Kenney :

    My hubby would love me even a little bit more than he already does if I were to win some games from Gamestop!
    One of my resolutions is to lose weight and get in shape so I can run the Warrior Dash this summer!

  86. Juleen Kenney :

    Let me clarify by saying that my husband would love me more because if I WON them. Because I’ve been threatening to BUY several, if not all, of those games to get myself (and HIM) in shape for the Warrior Dash this summer.

  87. Katelyn :
