Thank Goodness That’s Over!

What a tough week and what a rubbish day!  I guess I am lucky that I don’t often think this way but tonight I do.

Another week, another hotel room.  My favourite hotel was fully booked so I tried the Hampton Hilton in Birmingham instead.  Apparently it’s s little bit Hilton and a little bit more relaxed.  Well, not up to scratch I am afraid.  One of the windows in my room didn’t have a curtain yet we were in a brightly lit area so I struggled to stay asleep.  Plus, noise travelled and the hotel was on Broad Street which, as anyone who knows Birmingham knows, is full of Gentlemen’s clubs and nightclubs. i.e. lots of late night noise.  A very bad nights sleep indeed.  GRRRRRRR.

I liked these in the shower though.  When you need glasses, it is hard distinguishing the shampoo from the soap!  But these were good.

After 3 hectic days away, I was thrilled to be home and happy about working from home today.  BUT, my laptop decided to fail so I had to go to London, late and flustered to get it fixed.  I had a quick smoothie first.

The advantage of being in London was Borough Market on a Friday.  It was buzzing and vibrant and fun.  I had a Heavenly Haloumi burger which was delicious.  It was served with humous and spicy salsa and onion chutney in a seeded bun.  Very tasty.

I also stopped by this lovely stall for the first time.  I bought some Thyme honey with the honeycomb in it.  Raw honey is so much nicer than the pasteurised rubbish the Supermarkets sell.

Plus I had a cup of this and it was lovely.  Anyone know if these reputed health benefits are true?

I had plans for a homemade dinner but after a day in london I opted for something much simpler.

I had half a can of mixed beans, mixed with a heaped tablespoon of Cream Cheese and 1 level tbsp of the Chipotle sauce which I heated together in a saucepan.  I served them with lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber.

I did add some Cheddar after I took the pictures.

This was a simple and tasty dinner.  I have eaten really badly lately, with too much booze and way too many cakes, puddings and lattes.  I have really struggled and the weight is going on, not off.  Things have to change so I was pleased with supper tonight.  Tomorrow I MUST do more exercise.

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 :-)
