It's not too late to join the dry January masses. If you're already in, keep going. It's not for long and may change your relationship with alcohol for good.

Time to over indulge and spend the rest of the year paying for it. You’ll have to run two marathons to burn off the calories you consume during Christmas dinner
even at the moment, these are all staples and easy to get hold. No excuse not to have a healthy diet, and not too pricey either.
Eat an unprocessed diet as much as possible (80%) then don't worry about the rest. I don't think any of us can claim to be perfect eaters as it's so difficult to avoid the extra stuff in convenience food which is, well, very convenient!
I hate the thought of testing my fitness. As far as I'm concerned I just want to workout because it makes me feel healthy, and forget about the details of what's going on inside
label reading on cereals is an eye opening - lots of stuff labelled 'healthy' is more sugary than a bar of chocolate. Certainly an exercise in caution, and portion control.
Looking at how many grams of sugar per 100g has been very useful to me during times when I cut back on sugar. It makes it easy to see which cereals raise my blood sugar the least and can be quite suprising. For example, healthy muesli packed with natural fruit is actually high in sugar. Only the label could tell me this.
I had no idea that broccoli was a good source of protein. Great. That might be why my vegetarian brother makes potato and broccoli soup a lot!
I don't want to be hugely muscled (and it won't happen by accident) but I do like to see a bit of tone. I love broccoli so that's going on the menu more!
I agree with the hard boiled eggs as a great snack. I truly don't know how vegans manage to stay satisfied!
Somehow all this monitoring of our stats makes fitness seem overwhelming. I'm one for just being glad I've got to the gym, never mind exactly what my pulse rate was!
stopwatch? Pen and paper? measuring ruler? I feel a bit like I'm back at school but it's brilliant! Nothing wrong with the old methods.
I can't find my pulse on my throat! Easy to find on my wrist though. Guess it depends on different bodies where it's easiest to find.
Wow, side planks are an undiscovered gem. Just tried them for the first time and they are tough!
hard boiled eggs sre my staple protein. I boil 4 eggs most mornings and have them for snacks alongside smoothies.
time to get the tape measure out, I'm intrigued! BTW on my first aid course they teach that it is much easier to find your pulse at throat, not wrist.
The sit and reach test is still used in schools as a test of flexibility. I'm not sure how much it tells about your flexibility other than your hamstrings and calves though.
I always avoid anything that contains glucose-fructose-syrup as it's a horror story, so always read labels.
This is a great, simple way to check fitness. Maybe doctors should hand out this information so people can see for themselves how their fitness compares to others.
it is interesting to read what the rules are, and how the manufacturers dance round them without breaking them! We all need to get label-savvy.
I think if we all bought food that didn't have ingredients on the label, or just one ingredient, we'd all be a lot healthier"!
I agree with tuna being a great staple. I buy tins in bulk and add it to lots of meals. But I didn't think it was that high in omega-3s, though my concern is the protein!
no ingredient label on a potato - how true! And they don't get advertised, either. Makes you think, doesn't it?
cottage cheese has come a long way and is actually surprisingly tasty. One of my lunch staples.
eating egg whites only - I remember reading about that! I agree, no excuse unless you are making meringue!
