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 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 :-)

    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!
