Red, White And Blue?

Will we wake up in the morning and still be part of Great Britain?  Will we have the blue bits in our flag?  I do hope so but time will tell on that one.

I did well again today.  It is definitely easier going to work later as it gives me time to prepare breakfast and lunch to take in to town but it makes my day busier and harder as I have to pack the same work in to a shorter time period so I need to get back to early morning.  I will try making breakfast and lunch the night before next week.

This is actually huge but the photo has no scale in it.

Late morning I popped over the road to try another juice bar.  This is just a wagon by the side of the road that I have never tried before.

They had a long menu.
Juice Island menu I chose one of the ‘Lean and Green’ juices.Juice Master Stall This was made with apple, celery, parsley, cucumber and carrot.  They had no ice which was a shame as I like my juices chilled.  It was a bit sludgy with bits in so I wont be rushing back.Juice Island juice I prepared a lunch box at home with cherry tomatoes, carrots, cucumber, sugar snap peas, rocket, lamb’s lettuce and yellow pepper.veggies in lunch box I added a heaped tbsp of mayonnaise and 2 boiled eggs.sliced boiled egg By the time I had got to work it looked a bit messy but it tasted good and it took ages to chomp through all those vegetables which was great.  I sat and worked at my desk and munched away.lunch 18-9 For supper I made another banana ice-cream.  This was meant to be pink as it had raspberries and Acai in it but I think the super greens, cacao nibs and 2 dates made it pale brown.supper 18-9 Topped with Goji berries, cacao nibs and peanuts.  Absolutely delicious and a healthy way to curb my sweet cravings.banana ice-cream 18-9

I am pleased with how well I have eaten today.  I didn’t move around much so I need to find a way to fit in some exercise!

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 :-)
