Yes , I know, I know.
You don't want to think about it.
This time last year I hadn't even had my holiday (I went in Oct half term) this year , I have no holiday to console me (visiting parents for the 4th time this year soon)

its getting near 100 Days.
I need to get on board with weight loss/sorting my belly or I'm going to be looking in disgust at my middle in December.

I need to sort out some good winter clothes but I don't need thick layers because I hot flush like a bloody oven. While everyone else is in Parkas and gloves, I might button up my cardi .

I'll be back in a few days with A List.

TTFN wink

I'm in.
Should warn that I'm hopeless, but very likely going on holiday at Christmas and really do need to do something as I'm a complete mess 😳
I await further instructions!

I'll go for it. I await the list!

Currently pregnant and due mid November so not sure how much princessing I'll manage but want to do my best!

I'm in, have a family holiday at a country hotel in November which will require me to look presentable!

Lonelynessie Mon 11-Sep-17 17:22:05

I'm in. I've got about 4st to lose (well, 3.5st now that I've lost the first half). It's also my 30th birthday on the 22nd so really want to look my best for that!

rosiemorag Mon 11-Sep-17 17:43:11

Yep I'm in too. I need a bit of motivation to look after myself, inside and out. It's been a long year and I want to start some healthy habits that'll make a difference to my health.

Sodaface Mon 11-Sep-17 18:58:26

I hate the term "Princessing" however I suppose I'm in as I am starting to resemble Shrek.

glenthebattleostrich Mon 11-Sep-17 18:59:31

Ooh this sounds good.

PinkSquash Mon 11-Sep-17 19:00:24

I will join again in the hope I can stick at it

Oidog Mon 11-Sep-17 19:04:55

I'm in. Usually like to hibernate during winter which makes mood crash and plummet! Hoping done self care will help. Here is my list!

Continue with good nail care (stopped biting earlier this year and hanging onto the obsessed phase to make sure I don't nibble again)

Cleanse skin every day and home facial once a week (I moan that my skin is crap and wonder why!!)

Meal plan to stop the takeaway/ oven meal habit and ensure I eat some fruit and veg during the week. Hoping this will aid weight loss.

Regular exercise at least three times a week. Happy with 20 minutes dancing in the kitchen- better then nothing, but hope to get out for a run each weekend.

Also want to sort out work wardrobe as a long term thing but that can wait while I sort out skin/ diet/ fitness.

Good luck everyone!

Tanaqui Mon 11-Sep-17 19:05:01

Me too- I killed myself this summer losing 2 kilos, fell over out running, and put it all back on being immobile and only able to eat soft food!

Anyone else up for combining with "beauty hoard"- I am hoping to use all the stuff I buy and then save for best, clothes, skin care and make up!

But mainly need to drink more water and eat better.
