The Daily Poll

Poll: Have you kept to your New Year's resolutions?

We had such good intentions at the beginning of the month, but has your will power lasted this far into January?

IT’S TWELVE DAYS into 2014, coming up to the halfway mark into January.

At the beginning of the month we were full of good intentions –  you told us what yours were here.

Whether it be to save more money, not to be late any more, quit smoking, lose weight or exercise more, the new year gives us hope of a new you.

However, motivating yourself in a cold, dark January can be difficult and requires strong will power.

So today’s poll question, we want to know if you have powered on: Have you kept to your New Year’s resolutions?

Poll Results:

No (798)
I didn't make any (609)
Yes (198)
