Two Again

I just had two meals again today.  I was in the office very early – just before 7 am so before the coffee shops opened!  I had to prepare something for a presentation which was prepared and presented by 10:30 am so I popped out then and treated myself to a much needed latte with an extra shot.

That kept me going until lunch time when I ate a meal I had prepared at home the night before.

lunch 20-11-13 2In my lunch box today was:

  • brown Basmati rice
  • 2 boiled eggs
  • about 6 anchovies
  • 2 medium sized tomatoes
  • about 6 inches of cucumber
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 celery sticks
  • about half a cup of peas
  • and some oak smoked sweet peppers.

lunch 20-11-13 I found these oak smoked sweet peppers in the cupboard – I can not remember where they came from but they were lovely.  So I added about 2 spoonfuls with some of the oil they were marinating in to the lunch box.  It all contributed to a box of yumminess which I slowly munched my way through.

Confession time!  I bought a ready meal for dinner.  I felt very disappointed in myself but I was exhausted today and wanted something quick and easy to eat.  So I chose a cauliflower cheese which I served with some tenderstem broccoli and carrots.dinner 20-11-13 It took 25 minutes to warm through in the oven while I prepared and steamed the veggies.  Sometimes a girl just needs some help and today was one of those days when I needed something easy to prepare.   I think a ready meal was preferable to a toast pig out which was the likely alternative.cauliflower cheese and vegThe only other thing I ate today was about 10 almonds while I was cooking dinner.  I think a mug of green Rooibos tea and an early night will sort me out.  So much excitement in one evening!

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 :-)
