I have done it again. Stuck to my diet. Woo Hoo 🙂 First day back at work after a 3 week break and I went in well prepared. Sorry the pictures are all a bit samey but all my meals today had brown Basmati rice, vegetables and protein.
Breakfast; brown Basmati rice, tomatoes, 2 hard boiled eggs and rose harissa paste.
Remember this from yesterday’s blog? This is the tin of mackerel fillets.
I added them to a salad. My salad had brown Basmati rice, tomatoes, cucumber, celery and mixed baby leaves. Plus the mackerel which I drained of oil. No dressing. Just the salad, mackerel and rice. I had a very modest sized portion of rice, stir fried in coconut oil with left over lean roast pork, red pepper, kale, spinach, onions and mushrooms. With some soy sauce and Cholulah for spice.
I drank black coffee and many herbal teas. Another bonus was that I took all my food and drinks to work so I didn’t spend any money in coffee or sandwich shops either. This is the way to diet.
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 :-)

It is so nice to read you are sticking to this and you are feeling better too. You are off to a bang up 2014 Zoe. May you continue to find ways to make food taste so good and be simple to do as well. Planning is the key and so is ahead of time prep when you just don’t have the time, as you have definitely found out over the journey. Knowledge is power. When you use it. 😀 Go Zoe Go!
Thank you Laura for your support. I have realised that sometimes I may need to prepare a salad 24 hours ahead of when I want to eat it. It is better freshly made but the difference is much smaller than I imagined. It was great having all my food and drinks packed with me first thing!
