Extreme Tiredness

For various reasons I am very tired.  One obvious one is the lateish night and too much wine I enjoyed last night with some of my neighbours down at the Manhunters.  It was great fun and the resulting tiredness was worth it.  But I am also tired because I have not exercised enough, not eaten enough healthy food and eaten too many carby and sweet things this week.

I ate too much sweet stuff today too but at least breakfast had fruity sweet things.  I made a large smoothie with lots of these frozen blckcurrants and a banana.

Roast dinners do seem so comforting.

There is a portion in a tupperware pot all ready to take to work tomorrow.  I do hope next week is less stressful than the past week has been or even if it is as stressful, that I can deal with it more healthily.

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 :-)
