Beach Babies

Beach baby, beach baby, there on the sand.  Oh yes, another fantastic day on the beach.  We were so lucky that we woke up once more to bright blue sky and lots of sunshine.  Today was colder than it has been for ages but that did not deter the beach babies from choosing to spend their last day together on the beach, digging.

Fruit, yogurt and cereal for breakfast today.  Greek yogurt, mango, peach and Jordan’s Country Crisp with raisins for me.
Then off to my favourite beach which is only a 15 minute drive from our beach house.
To dig,
to hunt for crabs,
or sharks!  How we love our hunter-gatherers 🙂
To climb the cliffs,
to play in the cliffs,
to create giant ladies with seaweed hair and shell necklaces, and then hold her hand (so cute)
or make a life sized “water man”,
or make a giant sandcastle with a moat (Mummy helped a lot).
How we loved the virtually private beach.
Eventually the grown ups became too cold so it was time for lunch.

A diet-disaster!  Brie and bacon panini at Morelli‘s in Broadstairs,
with coffee,
Followed by ice-cream.  Morelli’s make their own ‘Gelato’ and I had one scoop of caramel in a small cone.  It was delicious.
It has been a total pleasure and a privilege to spend 3 days with my beautiful God-daughter and I enjoyed every minute of it all.

Alas, all good things come to an end and unfortunately it was time for our fab friends to head home to Leicestershire.  One last photo call with the dogs.
Come back and see us soon.

Back at home we had a quick and simple supper; falafel, humous, lettuce and some wonderfully juicy tomatoes with a small blob of mayonnaise.
For some inexplicable reason, I then pigged out on a slice of toast with marmalade and a hot chocolate :-(.  I am so dumb sometimes!  I don’t even know why I had that as I wasn’t feeling stressed which is my usual excuse.  I felt really happy and just a little tired.  I will not dwell on that little slip but will make much more effort tomorrow.

Tomorrow’s blog will be all about food and I will make sure I photograph everything I eat and it will all be healthy.

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 :-)
