As many of you know I cycle … A lot.  But I’m still not terribly happy with the state of my health the term I heard described was a great little aerobic engine in a crap chassis.

So heres my plan, I’m using a great little website http://www.myfitnesspal.com to monitor and track my food intake which seems to be working really well and my weight seems to be in a nice downward direction.  They also have an iPhone app which means I have no excuse not to record what I’m eating.

To complement the cycling I’m always doing I’ve also started running.  I’m using the Runners World beginners course and building up and hopefully I can stick to it as It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.

As a motivational tool, i’ve set myself some little targets to encourage myself.

Right now I’m 107 Kilos (16.89 Stone)

When I get below 100 kilos (15.74 Stone) I intend to buy myself some clothes from Howies.

When I get below 90 kilos (14.17 Stone) I’m buying a new single speed bicycle.

When I get below 70 Kilos (11.24 Stone) Well when I get there I’ll think of something.

The good thing is I’m excited about the whole thing and even looking forward to my run tomorrow morning.
