Redemption

This head of mine is so fuzzy still.  I got up early and spectacularly mis-timed the train and missed it by seconds so instead of being on the 5:47 I was on the 6:21 am.  So still very early but not as early as I intended.

Having arrived in London I made a stupid breakfast choice of a skinny latte with a toasted cheese and marmite sandwich in white toast.  I don’t even like white toast!

Lunch was an improvement.  Despite the drizzle I went for a walk.  I had to do the shortest route possible as I only had 25 minutes but at least I went.  Walking over London Bridge I snapped the Olympic rings on Tower Bridge.  London is still grey 😦

I had a delicious lunch from Konditoor & Cook – a lentil and aubergine bake with sour cream.

It was very good and I will try and make that at the weekend.

I also had some coffee cake  – doh!  Konditoor & Cook is a challenge for me.  I like going there because they have a great range of hot food and healthy options.  Unfortunately, the hot and healthy food is at the back of the shop so I have to walk past all their amazing cakes and then wait to pay next to the cakes again.  I should stay away really.

So where is the redemption?   Supper :-).  I made a base of raw vegetables which I just added salt and pepper to.

Then I added 2 slices of ham and some potato salad made with 4 small new potatoes, 1 spring onion and 1 level tbsp mayonnaise.

So I redeemed myself slightly.  Must do better tomorrow and make healthy choices all day.

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 :-)

    Thanks for the picture of The Olympic Rings Zöe! I can’t wait. Bob was asking me at dinner last night if you had heard anything about volunteering and I told him I didn’t think so, but that life worked out that you would have been working anyways during the week, so maybe it wasn’t meant to be. He was also very impressed with your Tractivity stat yesterday too and wanted me to pass that along.
    Cheers to a full happy healthy eating day. Did you see my post on FB for the Salt and Vinegar 2 Points Potatoes? It is on Pinterest too. Here is the link because I thought of you and of course Harvey.
