KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The first day of a new year is typically the time most people set a few resolutions, but unfortunately it also means many of those resolutions will be broken in the next few months.     

We went to downtown Knoxville to find out what kind of resolutions people are setting this year.

"My resolutions for 2013 is to be more punctual, to lose 150,000 pounds, to eat better, and to spend as much time with my family as possible," said Nick Raskulinecz.    

"I do want to focus on being more organized," said Chantal Jones

"I want to get my bike out, get it fixed up, and get back into shape," said Chris Parks.

"Lots of lunges," said Amber Raskulinecz, "Tone it up."

So the question is how do you keep your resolutions?

"I'm terrible at keeping New Year's resolutions," said Same Evans. "It's been my resolution to lose pounds and quit smoking for years now."

Someone who knows a lot about keeping resolutions is Angela Howard, the founder of Urbhana, a creative life center in Knoxville. She has been a life coach for several years.

"I make it real simple the three M's," explained Howard, "Measurable, motivation, and momentum. Measurable means to find a goal. Then you have measurable results, so just instead of losing weight, it's by this time next year I will have lost 20 pounds and kept it off. The second thing is motivation, celebrate. I think celebrate, so you lost three pounds in two weeks, celebrate. As you obtain these goals little by little you gain momentum, and momentum is something once you start the snowball it becomes a part of your life."

Howard says it is important to get a third party to monitor your resolutions for you.

"I hired a friend to help me," said Jones. "Who does that . . . an organizer."

Many people we spoke with today say they are confident their resolutions will happen.

"This year is different," said Amber Raskulinecz. "I can feel it. I can just feel it."

Howard also says it is also very important to have a desire to fulfil your resolution. If you really do not want to do it. It will never happen.
