Was a short week as I joined halfway through Tue but I think this target is about where it should be, I expect to meet it every week and slam it in on some (excluding hot weather) however it's not a given so serves as encouragement on mornings I wake up and don't feel inspired to ride to work.
1. Log 40 bike rides by 7 April: 32
2. Ride to work minimum 3x a week:

Have swiped the 100 push up challenge from Qlip's blog in order to have a structure to follow, have changed my goal to every other day in order to be able to push harder the following day without early fatigue due to not being recovered enough. Have completed W1 of the challenge and feel inspired to keep going with it each week, repeating any week where I can't get the required reps out. Am working on setting weights goals.
4. Push ups every other day:
5. Ab set 4x per week:
6. Weights set 2x per week:
Am finding the ab exercises boring which is an issue as boring means I may be pushed initially however in the end, I just won't do it. The only reason I have them on my "to-do" list is because I want to have some kind of strength and core work on a regular basis and I'm not going to lift weights more than 3 times a week. The push-up challenge works so need to find something else like that maybe and will probably make it lunges instead.

On days without interruptions I tend to be able to stick to the plan, Friday was all messed up and the weekends are an issue. Need to work on having simple options available for times when I don't feel like eating. It kinda feels to me like never ending eating, and this is only 3 small meals a day, have to work out something better here.
7. Market shopping once a fortnight:
8. Add one new option to meal plans each week:
9. Limit beer to max 7 per week: 5
10. Consume 3 meals per day min: but it is still an improvement, I have eaten when I was uninspired because of this challenge
