Meeting Ted

I felt still full and fat when I woke up today so I had a light and refreshing smoothie to start the day.  I was clearing out the fridge and ate up left overs, such as this half of a dragon fruit,

some grapes and an apple that had seen better days

and half a sachet of ground Flaxseeds.

Blended with some mineral water as I needed rehydrating and was trying to keep the fat and calories low.

It was fresh and fruity but probably not worth making again.

We all went to Lucy’s for lunch, to catch up, to celebrate her birthday and to meet Ted, the newest member of the family.

He is sooooo gorgeous.  Allegedly he is a miniature Labradoodle.  Lucy and I both have large Labradoodles and not wanting to worry Michelle, but, Ted looks bigger than ours did at that age – he is only 16 weeks old!!

Look at that gorgeous little face 🙂 .  We started with pink fizz, pitta bread and humous.

Followed by slow roast leg of lamb, couscous and salad.  It was delicious but for some crazy reason I forgot to take a photo.  So here’s another photo of gorgeous Ted instead.

All our children were at lunch with us today which is unusual these days and made the day more special.  The boys were elusive but here’s one of the gorgeous girls.

I brought dessert.  We had meringue, berry cream and Lara’s chocolate cakes (deja Vu) and an assortment of baklava to rekindle fond memories of our holiday in Turkey last year.

Followed by cheese, crackers and grapes Michelle brought.

Sally brought a very decadent chocolate cake

so we could sing to Lucy and celebrate her birthday.

We had such a fun day.  Now I am home, beached on the sofa again, watching a George Clooney film with Lara.  Welcome to the family Ted x.

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 :-)
