An Early Start

I had so much work to do today I caught the 5:47 train so it was still dark as I walked over London Bridge.

It takes about half an hour to walk from London Bridge to the office.  Along quiet streets and through little alleyways.white alleyway

The window cleaners start early!

At last, on Moorgate so nearly there.  10 past 7 in the morning and I have already walked my mile 🙂

Walking up Moorgate

I walk past some enormous reception areas.  It is hard to appreciate the scale in this photo but if you look towards the right hand side of the desk you can see the lady at her computer.  That helps give it a scale.  Believe me, it is massive!large reception areas

I had made breakfast to take in and bought a skinny latte to accompany it.breakfast 30-1-13

Oats, yogurt, blueberries, banana and soya milk.yogurt, blueberries and oats

I tried somewhere new for lunch called POD.  I didn’t have a salad though, despite the wording on the napkin.fork and napkin

I had shredded pork, on a bed of green lentils and pearl barley with a very colourful array of beans and vegetables.shredded pork

It was quite spicey and absolutely delicious.  I will be going back to POD for sure.shredded pork close up

At home I made guacamole with avocado, lime juice, salt and finely chopped coriander.

Which I ate with some leftover pinto bean chilli and brown basmati rice and a dollop of sour cream. Pinto bean chilli and rice

It was cold and blustery outside so an easy reheated supper was just the ticket.  After my early start, I am just about ready to head off to bed!

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 :-)
