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 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 :-)

    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.
