So, it’s February already and I haven’t done so well with my 2015 challenge. Well, I have in some ways, but not in terms of the feats that require just a smidge of bravery.
This year’s challenge was born out of a desire to step up my relatively new exercise regime a bit, but also to start eating fresher, healthier, more local food. This effort was was to be several-fold:
1. Eat more fruit and veg – 5-a-day, if possible
2. Cook more often and more widely
3. Keep a recipe diary
4. Exercise 5 times a week, 30-40 minutes per day (except when on holiday)
5. Do more of what I’m passionate about.
This has meant gorging myself on soup, fruit and vegetables and avoiding, as far as is humanly possible, guilty lunch-time panini and cheesy, carby suppers, then fitting in 40 minutes of jumping around in front of my iPad every evening (much to my neighbours’ chagrin) before settling in to revise and cook a fresh, wholesome supper which takes in howevermany of 5-a-day I missed at work.
I’m doing ok, I think, but I keep falling behind on my recipe diary. So, something drastic has to be done. THE BLOG is promising me it will be the answer.
