London Bridge

is falling down, falling down, falling down ….. Not really 🙂 .  It is still standing and I stood on it today in warm spring sunshine.

A bridge has stood here for hundreds of years and is now synonymous with commuters walking over it in the mornings on their way to work in the City.  When you see film footage of hundreds of people walking over a bridge, it is most likely London Bridge.

I had to pop out at lunch time to post my lovely namesake niece’s birthday card and I enjoyed a little stroll along the bridge so I could enjoy the sunshine and the view.  Looking West S.Paul’s looked as magnificent as ever

and to the East you see Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast.

On the way back to the office I went in to Konditor & Cook’s.  Fear not dear readers, not for cake but one of their salads.  I have not had one before but they look lovely.  I chose the Falafel salad.  It was fantastic.  The vegetables were fresh and the falafels were probably the best I have ever had 🙂

Supper was quick and easy.

Green smoothie made of rainbow chard, spinach, coconut, frozen banana, almond milk and yogurt.

Quite sweet and creamy.

Followed by a slice of wholemeal bread with peanut butter.  One half had blackcurrant jam on it too.

Simple but tasty enough.

I went to Weight Watchers on the way home for the first time in 4 weeks.  I weighed exactly the same.  Not a half pound more or a half pound less, but the same.  Which is OK.  It means I survived Easter and many days of over eating.  I am now back in healthy eating mode and working towards a loss for next week.

 

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 :-)
