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 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 :-)
