I made breakfast last night.   I was motivated as I had put up a new page with lots of ghastly photos of me – have a look!

KERF Overnight Oats

1/2 a cup of oats
1/4 cup of natural yogurt
1/2 cup of almond milk
1 small banana chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp chia seeds

Mix it up and leave overnight.  It gets thicker overnight and the seeds swell.  In the morning I added a splash of almond milk until it was the consistency I like.  Totally delicious.

I didn’t get out for lunch until 2:30pm.  By which time the salad from Turnip was not as fresh as it could have been.  It was still good apart from the broccoli salad which was too garlicy – very embarrassing back in the office!

A very stressful day.  The worst part was being called by Harvey’s school to say he had badly hurt his finger and I couldn’t go to be with him.  Luckily his Daddy could.  I left as soon as I could and then got stuck on a train for over 2 hours!  It was so good to get home and give him lots of hugs.  School were worried he may have broken it.  It is strapped to the neighbouring finger so he can’t move it and his arm is in a sling.  He is coping well with it and I don’t think a trip to hospital is necessary.  We shall see.

Quick smoothie – mango, banana, yogurt, sesame seeds and almond milk.  I then topped it with some nutty granola as I feel really hungry again.

These perfect fresh figs are lined up for breakfast.

I hope tomorrow is less stressful!

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 his finger is not hard to deal with. Arnica works for this as well. I hope you used it on him.
