Back to London

After a 3 week break I went back to the London office today.  To celebrate, I started the day with a Monmouth flat white.

And then popped next door for some breakfast – a sour cherry granola.

I love cherries and I really like that slightly artificial cherry flavour too.  This was yummy but I suspect it had too much sugar in it.  It was very small so not a complete disaster and it kept me going until lunch time at 2pm.  It really was small.  Monmouth only do coffees in one size and they are smaller than any other coffee shop.

I had a late lunch today of a chicken soup and a ham sandwich from Pret.  No time for a photo – yes, I am back in London.  Back to rushed and late lunches.  It was even better to get home tonight though.  Back to my lovely family and my gorgeous daughter who had cooked a wonderful dinner.  Chicken with steamed veg and a small amount of spaghetti.  It was all very garlicky so I will stink tomorrow.  This was our first dinner with my home grown garlic :-).  It was really good.  So much better than Supermarket garlic.

Another smelly addition to my house are these beautiful flowers.

I was sent them from work as a thank you for working so hard.  I really like roses and lilies so I was very chuffed.

So now the Olympics has finished in London, what am I supposed to do in the evening?  I seem to have forgotten !

 

 

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 :-)
