Typical days

First thing (around 5.30a.m. when the alarm goes off) it's time to get on the rower for exercise 101. At the moment I'm only doing 6 minutes a day, but that's going up bit by bit.

Then breakfast - not an easy thing for me as I don't actually want to eat first thing. Still, I'm told it's important so cram down a bowl of Shreddies with skimmed milk. I'll get to enjoy it someday!

Off to work and the walk from the bus stop at the far end - only about ten minutes but better than nothing. Drink a pint of water as soon as I get to work. Eat an apple or banana at break - avoiding the chocolate, biscuits, scones and anything else tempting but unhealthy.

Either a roll and a yoghurt or a bowl of muesli and semi-skimmed milk for lunch. Then when it's time to go home, another ten minute walk.

A relatively healthy evening meal - trying to cut down the portion sizes, minimise fats and top up the veggies. It is hard to avoid the glass of wine or a beer though. I'm trying to keep it for the weekends but...
