Picking

I picked today.  All day long.  So I am feeling disappointed in myself.

I started ok with some very juicy melon.

melon 19-7-13 I added some almonds to sustain me.melon and almonds But I wanted more so I had some Shreddies with yogurt and almond milk.Shreddies and yogurt I was working from home and had been invited to Sarah’s beautiful home for lunch.  I volunteered to take a salad.garden salad 3 All of this came from the garden except the tomatoes.garden salad 2 In the salad bowl are: lettuce, radishes, pea shoots, fresh and finely sliced pea pods, nasturtium flowers and cherry tomatoes.  Sarah had a delicious salad dressing which went with it perfectly.garden salad 1 Everybody brought something .  I really like lunches like that so you get a lovely mixture of flavours and tastes and styles.lunch at Sarah's I was quite good at lunch time.  I tried 2 of the flans; one was roasted onion and the other a completely delicious Ricotta and tomato.  I had a generous serving of my salad, tomato and basil and a lovely lentil and spinach salad.  Yummy.lunch 19-7-13 Yummy like this group of yummy mummys.  Unfortunately I had a 1:30 meeting so I had to munch my lunch quickly and head home and I then worked until 7 pm.  It was so hard to leave and I really didn’t want to but at least I was able to go for a short amount of time.yummy mummys I picked again in the afternoon.  I had a chunk of Cheddar with an apple, then some almonds and dates.

For supper Lara cooked us fishcakes which she made with sweetcorn, mashed potato and tuna.  They were really good.  Served with a salad and mayonnaise.tuna fishcakes I enjoyed this cider style drink with supper.  I am guessing Appeldryck is apple drink but not sure what the Hjortronsmak is!Appeldryck

This was followed by Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough ice-cream.  Which I did enjoy but shouldn’t have eaten.

So not a great days eating for weight loss so hopefully tomorrow will be better.

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 :-)
