I wish I could write that I have completely overhauled my diet. I wish I could honestly tell you that I have given up junk food, stopped snacking between meals and that my love affair with pizza (who loves me even more than I love it) was over. Alas, I cannot. What I can say is that I have made a concerted effort to eat better in all areas of my life.
I have written several times this early spring that I want to be better on the bike this year. To do that I am going do several things:
- stretch more consistently and improve my flexibility
- lower my weight to achieve a better power to weight ratio
- ride more often to improve my fitness
- work on my core strength
- improve my nutritional balance
These are obvious goals but the execution of them is not necessarily easy. By doing all of the things I mentioned, weight loss should be a natural consequence. If it weren’t for a very powerful love of chocolate, beer, pizza, and samosas, that would probably be true.
I just thought I would share a picture of my lunch with you to show you that I am serious in turning over this new leaf (again).
