Time to act

Eating piles of comfort food on a night has become a bit of a theme for me over the past few months. It's obviously a Winter thing, getting home from work I can think of nothing better than cooking up a big bowl of pasta, chilli, etc, etc, and getting cosy on the sofa.

This habit really hasn't been good for my waistline though; I'm not sure how much weight I've put on exactly, but you can see from the pic below that I'm not exactly svelte!

I figure with Spring (hopefully) just around the corner, it's time for me to act and set myself a bit of a get healthy challenge. I'm not talking about going on some kind of crazy diet (I've tried all sorts in the past and they just don't work for me) rather I want to set myself some mini challenges that will help me drop a bit of weight, tone myself up and improve how my skin is looking.

Now, I already do some exercise every day (cycling to work and back is an 8 mile round trip), but obviously my body has got used to this and I need to work in some more exercise. So my first challenge to myself is to try to fit in 3 workouts a week. I have a few fitness DVDs and weights at home so I'm prepared and really have no excuse.

Obviously making sure I'm drinking two litres of water a day, and making some small improvements to my diet (less carbs, more leafy greens) along the way will help, but I'll try one main challenge at a time until they become habit.

Good luck to me!
