Work and Beach

I worked from home today which I always enjoy as it saves me 3 hours commuting time.  Mind you, on the hottest day of the year so far, there are advantages to an air conditioned office but the huge disadvantage of commuting in this heat completely outweigh that.

After a late night last night I was tired this morning so had a smoothie full of goodies; banana, blackcurrants, coconut water, tahini, chia seeds, spirulina and a blend of protein powders and other superfoods.

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 :-)

    I am sorry to read you both were stung/bitten. My Son was bitten by a jellyfish in Jamaica when Bob and I got remarried. Uric acid was the only thing that relieved the pain. Go figure. It worked. I certainly hope you didn’t because he wasn’t feeling well for about a week after that. Other than this blip, you had an awesomely nutritious day of eating. Your body is loving you!
