HOLDEN PARTS SPE­CIAL­ISTS Loosen the belt a notch

When you have been ex­er­cis­ing, it’s nice to re­ward your­self a lit­tle

I’VE taken my com­mit­ment to a new fit­ter and health­ier life to the next level.

I now have what is be­ing de­scribed as the big brother belt. It’s a belt-like thing I wear and it records when I ex­er­cise.

Not only that though, when I wear it at the gym it also tele­vises on a screen that ev­ery­one in the gym can see how hard I am work­ing.

I’m not go­ing to lie. I am freaked out by the belt. It’s un­nerv­ing. But I guess that’s kind of the point. I know I can’t lie to my­self or any­one else about ex­er­cis­ing be­cause the belt knows all.

So in or­der to ac­tu­ally get up and go­ing I like to play lit­tle mind games with my­self. I make my­self lit­tle prom­ises and give my­self re­wards.

One of those re­wards is a de­li­cious break­fast and this is one of my favourites.

I love this dish be­cause you can re­ally just throw what­ever herbs you like in there and it mainly uses sta­ples I al­ways have in the house – apart from per­haps the chorizo.

You can also add your favourite spices and of course, as much chilli as you can han­dle.

The chorizo and bread prob- ably can­cels out the visit to the gym in terms of calo­ries burnt but for­tu­nately the belt doesn’t know what I am eat­ing so I man­age to dine on th­ese dishes rel­a­tively guilt free.
