Friends, Dogs and Mud

I didn’t manage to post a blog last night because after a busy and hectic day at work I hot-footed it to the Old Dr. Butler’s Head

to meet some dear friends I was at University with.

We enjoyed watching the end of THE match

and then headed out for dinner.

We dined at The Hawksmoor , Guildhall which serves up a lovely cocktail and a wonderful steak but is very pricey.   A fabulous night with some very dear friends who I wish I could see far more often.

This morning I wanted to pack in some nutrients so went for strawberries and blueberries,

coconut water, cottage cheese and sesame seeds.

Unfortunately the cottage cheese was a bit off so I drank half and then decided to pass on the rest as it was too cheesy.

I had a lovely day out to look forward to which involved a dog walk with Barney

and Ted, who showered us in mud several times!  Sally and Michelle came too 🙂

Wet and muddy?  Moi?

We had lunch at The Sportsman near Tadworth which is a very dog friendly pub.  Even wet ones although the landord did towel Ted down before he was allowed in.

Sally treated us to some fizz – thank you Sally 🙂

And we dined on superb burgers

and then a naughty pudding – pecan pie with butterscotch sauce.  A lovely treat after a wet and muddy walk.

After a visit to meet the newest addition to Sally’s family, hello Mac,

we went to have tea with Dad

and Ted got muddy, again!

So not a good diet day but at least we had a walk so that helped a bit.  Must do better tomorrow!

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 :-)
