Strange Temptations

Today’s blog will be short and sweet, mainly because I only ate twice.  Consequently there are only a few photos.  It is 8pm (ish) and I am still feeling full from my very strange lunch so I am not bothering with supper.

I am not entirely sure what I had for breakfast.  It was a smoothie and definitely had red berries in it and blackcurrants.  But as I didn’t label it I can not be sure what else was in it.  It was not at all sweet so I am quite sure it has no added sugar of any kind in it.breakfast 14-10-13 2 The middle was still frozen when I ate it but the edges had thawed.  It tasted OK although it looked like an erupting boil until I stirred it!breakfast 14-10-13 I had a very busy morning with back to back meetings so was looking forward to a stroll at lunch time and a browse in the local M&S Food to choose my lunch.  But it was raining, I had no coat and as I went out at peak lunch time, M&S was heaving.  So it was not a pleasant experience and I was not sure what I fancied.  I wasn’t trying to be good, I really wasn’t tempted today by anything sweet.  I wanted to be healthy but couldn’t decide what to have.  So I bought the olives and Feta.olives and feta in tub With a Pork Pie!  Yes, how weird is that?  I used to take a pork pie to school sometimes in a packed lunch and occasionally my Dad will serve one with pickles and salad for lunch.  But I think it is many years since I had one.  I actually really enjoyed it.  I like the crisp and crunchy pastry and the close texture of the meat which was not gristly so I could enjoy it.  This one has hardly any jelly in it, which is the bit I dislike and usually pick out but not today.pork pie What would I do with those olives?  They were too salty on their own so I used a wholemeal bap to make an olive and Feta roll.  I had bought a packet of 4 baps to take home but I rather enjoyed one with the olives and Feta.olive and feta bap 2 So I had 2 !  They were not very large but that was quite a calorific lunch so no wonder I am not hungry in the evening.   Olive and feta bap

It seems strange to not eat supper in the evening but I am not hungry so I am not going to.  A mug of Rooibos will do and an early night so I can finish my book.  Have a good evening, y’all.

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 :-)
