Sunshine In A Glass

This morning was excellent.  It was sunny with bright blue skies, I was working from home so I could enjoy the sunshine and I lost 4 pounds.

This lovely white rose is covering the apple tree and it smells heavenly, especially in the evenings.roses on apple tree It smells good on sunny mornings too.rose on apple tree 1 Hot water with lemon.  It looks like I caught some sunshine in a glass.sunshine in a glass Mid-morning I was supposed to have a green juice but I was too busy with work to make it so I had a little bit of cheese with chives in it and an apple.cheese with chives and apple I had the juice at lunch time instead which I made with quarter of a pineapple, a handful of chard leaves, 2 apples, a lime, half a cucumber, a stick of celery, half an avocado and a chunk of ginger.  Everything except the avocado was juiced and then the avocado was blitzed with the juice in a blender.Turbo Kick ingredients I really like this juice and enjoyed every sip.Turbo Kick juice When I set off to get Harvey I realised I was hungry so I had a bag of peanuts.  Not the best choice on a diet but I was at a garage and there was nothing healthy but I was too hungry to have nothing.  At least there is no flour in it 🙂KP peanuts Supper ingredients; chicken breast, asparagus, red cabbage, onion, courgette and red pepper.supper ingredients 6-6-14Stir fried in coconut oil with minced garlic and sprinkled with Zat’ar for extra yummy flavour.supper spices 6-6-14 We had this with a jacket potato.dinner 6-6-14 1 It was warm enough to eat outside at 7:30pm.dinner 6-6-14

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 :-)

    Congratulations on a nice day and a 4 pound weight release. Lunch drink looks really yummy. I would be worried about all the sugar, even if it is natural, making me hungry in about an hour, but still sounded and looked yummy.
