Munchy Mungous

So one bad night’s sleep and the diet goes to pot 😦 . I just had to start with a coffee.  I resisted the croissant

coffee but no croissant but did have an organic egg and cress sandwich for breakfast from Konditor & Cook.egg and cress sandwich For lunch I went out with  a colleague, Kevin.  We walked round to Canvey Street which is at Bankside, behind Tate Modern.  We decided to eat in Tsuru which specialises in Sushi.  I wanted something substantial though so I went for the Teryaki Bento box.  It was good.chicken teryaki

Having eaten a decent amount we wanted a little something extra so we went for a coffee and a brownie.  I did at least share the brownie!Leon brownie and coffee I had sweets on the train which I justified (obviously I should never have sweets!) as I was going to play tennis but when I got home it was raining so that was the end of the tennis ambition for the evening.

Dear darling daughter had made us a healthy supper which was amazing.  A baked butternut squash, stuffed with mushrooms, onion and garlic.  It was fabulous.  I confess I did add some butter and black pepper.Butternut squash stuffed with mushrooms I was still craving something sweet so I popped this incredibly juicy mango in to the blender.  I actually popped about half of it in to my mouth but the rest made it to the blender.juicy mango With a frozen banana, ripe apricot, fresh coconut pieces and some cashew nuts.banana and apricot Le voila!  Mango and apricot soft serve.  Deelicious!Mango and apricot soft serve

I still feel tired and I ate too much food today and moved too little.  But at least I ended the day with some nutritious food so not all bad.  Tomorrow’s another day which will hopefully be less munchy mungous than today was.

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 :-)

    Sigh, I’m reading this as something akin to Water Torture, on day 4 of my sponsored Hunger Week! The sweet craving is horrible, isn’t it? The thought of your mango or that brownie is almost making me salivate…Are you still doing 5:2 fasting?
