Happy Holidays Are ……

Starting the day with good intentions; pumpkin, oats, soya milk and Greek yogurt with a cup of tea.

Fab friends arriving and in the excitement forgetting to take photos of lunch.  It was roasted vegetables and goats cheese on lightly toasted ciabatta spread with pesto.  Yummy.

Strolling on the beach and then having a beer in the late afternoon in The Belgian Cafe.  They have a choice of over 200 beers!
Or hot chocolate.
Relaxing at home together.
Eating supper together; roast chicken, baked pumpkin, baked sweet potato and broccoli.
Having pudding; knickerbocker glory – white chocolate ice-cream, maple and pecan ice-cream, blackcurrant jelly, chunks of a Crunchie bar (small ones), strawberries, peaches and raspberries.  And wine.  And then some!
Being together for breakfast.
Greek yogurt, British strawberries and raspberries.
Long walks along the beach in the sun.
Clambering about on the cliffs.
Exploring caves.
Searching for crabs in the rock pool.
Spending time with special people.
 Making sandcastles.
Chilling in the Autumn sunshine.
Eating lunch, outside,  in October, beside the sea at Osteria Pizzeria Posillipo in Broadstairs.
 Being treated to lunch by our fab friends.  Thank you.  A scrumptious seafood platter.
Followed by sea bass with spinach (and some chips) but forgetting to take photos as having such a lovely time.  Broadstairs is so gorgeous.

Having a simple supper as everyone is happily tired.  Chicken fajitas.
Followed by fresh fruit and ice-cream.
And rather a lot of Bounty rum from Saint Lucia and Sancerre.  Happy days 🙂

I love holidays :-).  And fab friends.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
