The Diet Begins... Again...

Okay, I was going to post this yesterday, but what with it being April Fool's and all that, I thought that you would all think I was joking. When in fact I am serious... deadly serious.

I've kinda let myself go again, and knew that I was eating much more than I should during February and March. Also, I was doing practically zero exercise.
Now, I'm restarting my 'diet', but I've not got any goal in mind - apart from to cut down on rubbish and increase exercise.

Here's how it's going to work:

During the month of April, I will be eating no chocolate, no cakes, no crisps, no rubbish. I will reduce my meal portions. I will only drink water. I will go for a 1.5 mile bike ride twice a week - actually outdoors, on a real bike, and may even use my exercise bike mid-week. That's right, I said I MAY use it - steady as she goes and all that.

So that is my goal.

So on Monday, I tried my bike ride. It's just a short one really, as I said, 1.5 miles. It took me 11 minutes and 29 seconds. My heart rate peaked at 193. I don't know if that's good or bad, but, you know, 193.

So I'll keep you posted on my progress.

After April, I may start allowing treats, but April is the month to kick start my diet.
So far, I've already turned down lots of chocolate, and stopped myself from having treats. I had a banana, an apple and a carrot yesterday, and have got the same today - and I'm determined to eat them today.

So, roll on diet... and roll off... weight...
