Winter is coming.
My jeans don't fit. It is not like I have grown any taller, they still fit length wise. 

So: the solution started today. Regular exercise and healthy lunches. I eat well when I am at home, but I make my own school lunch and I often can't be bothered to whip up something balanced.
The commitment I am making when it comes to food is to make myself a healthy (not to mention delicious!) lunch, normally in the shape of a bento. 

Yesterday, my lunch was created. Firstly with a trip to the supermarket (walking the long way, exercise+vitamin D!) to buy shiitake mushrooms, salmon, sesame seeds, bok choy  and coconut water. The coconut water was just something that made me curious,and was actually really good!

I then fried the fish in some ginger, soy and sesame seeds. I had to make sure it was well cooked because it had to go in my lunch box for a few hours un-refrigerated. I then mashed it a bit so it was in small pieces and added some fresh chili. 
Now to shape the rice balls! I got a small dish and pressed the warm sushi rice into it so i had  space for my salmon. Then it was just a case of putting more rice on top and turning them out on some nori! At the same time i steamed some vegetables as a side.

So - there is lunch, now to do some exercise. Ballet tomorrow and then I will have to drag Wills out to do some softball training on the other days.

I feel like such a teenage girl, I am not dieting as such, just aspiring to become more healthy. Still, feel a little bit ridiculous, but I have a bush-walking camp coming up and I want to be able to climb those mountains without dying ;)

So, if for once I can actually commit to something for any real period of time, it will be a miracle!
Wish me luck!

    If Jeannie and I can walk 21 kilometres in a day in Italy, you can get up those mountains.
