Ever get puzzled by TLAs?  My work is full of them.  Most systems are TLAs and conversations and emails are full of them too.  Amazingly, you pick them up quickly.  Today was a good day.  I was OOO. Not on a DAL like I was yesterday but because I was WFH.  Brilliant!  I was delighted until I panicked that my RSA wouldn’t work and I lay awake worrying from about 4am.  Ridiculous.

Shouldn’t have worried though.  I was sitting in the dining room logged on by 7am.  I then went to let Harvey know I was Working From Home.  That meant nothing to him.  So I explained that every Friday from now on, I could take him to the school bus and then collect him after school.  He was so delighted it was great.

Having dropped him off I made a smoothie for breakfast.

Looks and tastes like raspberry ice-cream but is all full of goodness with no dairy or added sugar.  Raspberries, a banana, almond milk and ice cubes to make it thick and cold.

I was really tired today so I had some tea.  I have decided I want to be thin rather than ultra healthy so I need to cut out the milk, or at least cut it down and learn to drink it without milk.  Many years ago I worked in a Japanese company which employed lots of Japanese people.  They used to drink tea that came in pretty tins like this one.

I developed a taste for it but hadn’t tried any for years.  I found this tin recently in the back of a cupboard in the kitchen and had a cup.  I still like it.  And I like my new mug.

It was so good working from home.  I pooped a sweet potato in to the oven to bake for lunch.  Carried on working, then when it was nearly ready, I picked some lettuce, spinach and a radish from the garden.

I added a tin of tuna mixed with mayonnaise.

That radish was so peppery and crisp and flavoursome it was great.

A very quick and easy but simple lunch.  One I couldn’t have had in the office but one I enjoyed from home.

I arranged to work from home today so I could make it to Harvey’s school in time to hear/see him singing in the Evensong service at his school.  He was at the front so we could see him perfectly.  It was lovely and I was so thrilled to be able to see him.

With no commute home I actually worked later than usual but it was such a relief to know I didn’t have to spend an hour and a half getting home.  I made a really simple supper.  A 2 egg omelette with some cheese.

Plus half a bunch of asparagus.


Not quite enough though so I added a banana, some granola and almonds to a nearly finished tub of blackcurrant yogurt.  I added some almond milk and enjoyed my cereal snack.

Interested in the TLAs?
TLA = Three Letter Acronym
OOO = Out Of Office
DAL = Days Annual Leave
RSA = Remote System Access

NYK 🙂 . Oh keep up – now you know!

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 :-)
