Brazilian in Birmingham

Hotel breakfast – yay !  Muesli, fresh fruit, almonds and yogurt with grapefruit juice.

Off to work and work, work, work all day.  I had a chicken sandwich and bag of popcorn for lunch.  I was so excited to finish work and go to the hotel, knowing my children were there :-).

Lara was busy for a while so Harvey and I went to the bar where I had a much needed gin and tonic and we shared some bar snacks while watching some of the Olympics.

Early evening we strolled along the canal.

This is such a pretty pub, on the canal.

Looking towards Brindley.

Canal barges.

Canal sign post.  I haven’t walked far today !

Harvey ❤ Lara 🙂

We went to a fab restaurant for dinner – Rodizio Rico.  It is a Brazilian restaurant which was located in the Mailbox area of Birmingham, a short walk along a pretty canal from our hotel.  You help yourself to a very varied salad bar with hot and cold dishes.

Then men come to your table constantly, serving freshly grilled meats.  We had chicken, sausages, steaks, lamb kebabs, pork, chicken hearts (I passed on those) and  gammon.

We went crazy and had cocktails too 🙂

We are now all snuggled up in bed, watching a movie.  What a delightful evening – if only all business trips could be this much fun!

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 :-)

    Wow, what an amazing dinner you guys had, not to mention the walk after.
    Zöe I keep thinking about you as I watch the Olympics. I also do not like when Britain and Canada are fighting for the spot for the medal. But, may the best woman/man win! Keep having a fun week with the kids to come back to the hotel with.
