Thanks for the advice, I'm going to clean up my diet a bit, restrict my calories to between 2,500-3,500 a day and try following your suggestions on cardio a bit. I'm not going to do anything to drastic yet seeing as I've made some good strength gains over the past 2 months and want to keep going until I atleast get to my short term goals, but obviously consuming a entire box of chocolates isn't going to be beneficial to getting their either. Hopefully when I'm satisfied with my gains, I'll be able to do something as slight as cutting 500 calories a day to round off my physique.
In terms of cardio, should I just measure progression in speed? I often get confused/run out of ways to gauge that I'm making forward progress (it's not as simple as adding weight while weight training... unless I'm bulking I guess..).
