Just Like Buses

My social life lately has been just like waiting for a bus – nothing for ages and then 4 come along at once!

London has been bathed in sunshine this week which means when you go out in the evening you can be outside.  I had a very merry evening on Wednesday at Heel Tap in Southwark, which is tucked away down a little side street off Borough High St.  It has a lovely big courtyard which was the perfect location for some summer drinks.

I managed to not overdo the drinking and ate very well on Wednesday.

Outside at HeelTap Thursday morning I woke up hungry as I had not had supper the previous evening.  I made an old favourite to take to work; 1/2 cup of oats with 1 tbsp chia seeds and a few almonds as I was very hungry.Oats and chia and almondsTopped with coconut milk and loads of blueberries.

In the evening I joined Suzanne and some of the lovely local ladies for a birthday celebration at The George in Cranbrook.  I had a tuna nicoise salad which was lovely.  I was really craving some protein and that hit the spot perfectly.tuna nicoise saladLooking lovely ladies 🙂

So there we have a brief summary of 2 hectic days at work and 2 fun evenings out.  Today is looking to be the same pattern!

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 :-)

    Your photography always is breathtaking. You always have something to fall back on should you want a career change. Everything is always so clear and crisp it is like you can reach out and eat it or touch it or hug it!
