The First Day

Today was the first day of my 3 week holiday.  I set myself the task of exercising and eating healthily every day.

The very first thing I did today was to go for a walk.  It was glorious outside this morning; sunny with blue skies, a comfortable temperature and crisp underfoot.  Perfect walking weather.  The little fella and I had a wonderful walk with the dogs.  Why don’t I start days like this more often?

I made sure I drank plenty of water today.  Plus I cut down on dairy by avoiding cheese and having black teas rather than milky ones.  I did have one latte but a small one.bottle and glass water I had a late breakfast with 4 of these lovely spinach falafels which I heated up in the oven.spinach falafel Served with a heaped tbsp humous and a large tomato.falafel, tomatoes and humous Really delicious.Breakfast 14-12-13 Lara and I had a late lunch in Battle.  We went to Mrs Burtons Tea Rooms which was very charming and oh, so English.  I had cottage pie with vegetables and a latte.  I really enjoyed it.Cottage Pie

So I exercised, ate reasonably well and drank plenty of water.  I did go to the local this evening and had a white wine spritzer and some nuts.  Not delicious raw healthy nuts but roasted salted ones.  But I did not over eat today and I did not have any sugar so I am pleased with that.  I hope I do well tomorrow too.

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 :-)
