After I have my pancake day, I will be cutting down on chocolate. However my lent challenge, which I have started today, is to drink 1.6-2 litres of water a day. If my diet is good then I should get some water from the food I eat. I normally drink a good few glasses each day, but my routine has been so sporadic this year that I have struggled to take care of myself (and it shows).
How will I do this?
I have a water bottle which holds 750ml. Two and a half times that will be a good daily intake. So I will be carrying it around with me, and drinking as much as I can. I figure if I sip it throughout the day then I am more likely to drink my target amount, than panicking at the end of the day and drinking 2 glasses in quick time!
So that is the chocolate and water..Yoga?!

I have been researching this to see if it will give me a good work out. My exercise routine needs a bit of a shake-up. I am not too worried about loosing weight, but I want a nice toning activity, and some cardio. I have never been good at cardio.
I am not sure if yoga has proven medical benefits, or if it will help with cardio. I have tried to find out and come up with all sorts of different answers. If anyone knows then I would really apprecaite the advice!
Also if anyone knows how much cardio I should aim to do each week, that would really help! If I did a session of yoga, and a session of swimming a week, would that be enough?!!!?
So, are you giving anything up/taking anything on? Do you know about yoga? Or exercise? How do you stay in shape?
