An Early Start

I have been up for hours.  I was up at 4:45 am so I could catch the 5:31 am to London and then on to Birmingham.  I bought a small latte and yogurt with granola pot at Euston which I had on the train.

At lunch time I stepped out for some air and a stroll about.  Just round the corner from the office is this charming canal.  I like the pink barge.

Here’s the view from the other side of the bridge.

I bought a salad from Carluccio’s.  Half the pot was chick peas and the other half was pasta.  It was the only 2 salads they did.  Tasted OK but I wanted fresh vegetables.

After work we checked in to the lovely hotel and then caught a cab to The Bullring for a spot of shopping.  This is the outside of The Bullring.  The green spotty building is Selfridges.

We had supper in a Japanese restaurant.  I had vegetable and seafood tempura which was lovely

followed by a chicken curry which was not.  I ate the chicken and salad but left most of the rice.  I enjoyed the beer I washed it down with.


I have enjoyed relaxing in my hotel room and really appreciate the super fast internet which has uploaded my photos in seconds.  I will be off to bed in a minute as I am exhausted and I have another early start in the morning.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. 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 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. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

    I hope you got a good sleep last night for another early start today. Enjoy the faster internet at the hotel.

    I’m like you and love Japanese food, but was never a lover of the white sticky rice. May your day today be found with great healthy food buys and some fresh veggies for lunch.
