Spa Day

What shall I put in my smoothie for breakfast?

Delicious.  The raspberry and coconut favours came through and this was thick and creamy.  Consumed along with a cup of tea and I headed off to Leamington Spa to see Jane and Gary.

Jane and Gary are friends of ours we have known for about 30 years but for some reason I haven’t seen them for about 6 years so I was really excited to be visiting.  I had a coffee when I arrived.  How quaint – they have milk bottles in Leamington Spa!

Then Gary poured the fizz 🙂

And we ladies retied to the sunny garden and had a reminisce and laugh about some old photos.  Sally, Sarah and I were at school together and Jane and Gary were at University with Sally so we go back a very long way.  There were some really choice hairdos in those photos!

Lunch time.

Gary had cooked roast pork, sausages, roast and mashed potatoes, broccoli, carrots and cauliflower with Yorkshire pudding and apple sauce.  I completely overloaded my plate and it was delicious.

Followed by a very rich and delicious chocolate dessert.  Yum!

Time flew and all too soon it was time to say good-bye :-(.  Thank you for a lovely lunch and afternoon.

So I left one group of friends and headed to another :-).  I am working in Birmingham tomorrow so am staying overnight with fab friends who live about 40 minutes away.  I arrived to some vino and a lovely chicken dinner,

followed by birthday cake, homemade by my sweet God-daughter and her little brother.

So another day that was not a great diet day but I spent it with some very dear friends and enjoyed it all.  I might stay in the Midlands – it’s really rather wonderful.

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 :-)
