Frown less

Maintain new face cleansing and care routine (started in Dec early)
Save some money for a rainy day emergency fund

Christmas, that's a fabulous idea!! smile

CiderwithBuda Tue 01-Jan-13 11:54:34

Lose weight. Lost almost 2 and a half stone with WW last year but have struggled over last few months. Back to it next Tuesday.

Walk more.

Use my cross trainer if too wet to walk.

Carry on with last years organising/de-cluttering. House is much better but still have a bit to go.

Thinking of banning myself from here so I actually do stuff!

duffybeatmetoit Tue 01-Jan-13 11:56:55

Not to go to the gym. My cousin said it is the only resolution she's been able to keep all year grin
