Home Again

I woke up bright and early today.  I could have had a lie in as the hotel is so close to the office but I woke up early and got going with the day.  I had a large breakfast in the hotel, starting with a small bowl of muesli with some extra nuts (hazelnuts and almonds), dates and a pot of yogurt.

Delicious but I should have added some fresh fruit.  I had a small bowl of cereal as I fancied having an egg, in case I didn’t get time for lunch.

I then had a fried egg on a  slice of wholemeal toast with 2 small cheeses and a small slice or seeded brown bread.

When I popped out of the office at lunch time for some food, the sun was shining and the local office workers were outside catching some rays.  This is the view from the office steps.

The fountains are very relaxing to watch as the pressure changes so they are high then low and they sound lovely.  If you had the time to sit and enjoy them I am sure it would be very pleasurable.

I bought a tuna melt and a skinny flat white from Costa.  I have not found anywhere here that does a decent salad full of vegetables or even fresh fruit which is annoying.

I had a straight forward trip back to Kent and it was great to be home again.  I was really excited to get home, knowing Lara was there 🙂  Although not so excited to see my clean and tidy kitchen transformed to something more usually experienced in a Hall of Residence!

Order was quickly restored and I happily popped goodness in to my blender: kale, celery, a pear, an apple, a banana and an avocado with 250 ml water and 250 ml ice cubes.  Just managed to get my 5 a day in – phew.

This was my first green smoothie with kale in it.  I could taste it slightly but it was fine and I enjoyed it.

That quantity made one and a half large glasses full of green yummy goodness.

I also had 2 slices of the Celebration cake.  Oops.  But one slice was so delicious so I had another one which finished it up.  It tasted even better I think than on Sunday.

It’s so good to be home again.

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 :-)
