A Mixed Bag

I have been out for the previous 2 evenings which has been fun but challenging to ones diet!   Some meals have been excellent, such as this healthy little lunch

of steamed vegetables and brown rice

which were taken to lunch with salad dressing and overnight oats for breakfast.

Last night I had time for a potter about the garden before going out.  My garden is amazing at this time of year.

I can take very little credit for it as the previous owners planted some extraordinary rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias which are in bloom at this time of year.

These alliums are one of my favourite plants.

I went out to a local pub with my lovely friend Lucy.  We went to the The Goudhurst Inn which for local people, is the grey pub on the road between Cranbrook and Goudhurst.  It was good.  We started with a drink outside in the garden

and then went in for dinner.  We both had sea bass and veg and then both had a yummy pudding.  It was a lovely evening.

Today was not so good food wise.  Lunch was a sandwiches round the table with 25 work colleagues during a 4 hour meeting!  When I came home tonight my wonderful daughter had made us all dinner.  The table was laid and we sat down to Thai green curry with brown rice.   Yummy yum yum.  And what a treat.

And a pudding.  Oops.  Thank you gorgeous girl.

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 :-)
