Chichester 10K

We were up at 6am on a Sunday morning !!!!!  Well, technically the alarm went off at 6am but we were’t up then.  However, we were out the house and in the car by 7:30 which is a great achievement but we were well motivated to go and cheer Abi (my sister) on who was running the Chichester Priory 10k.  I ate lots of watermelon in the car on the way there.

Here is part of Abi’s fan club; my sister Holly and her husband Richard, Lara and Harvey.Abi fan club There she goes, looking very fresh near the start.Abi 2 Still looking good at at the 9.5 k point.Abi 1Yippee !!!!  She did it and in a very good time.

I remained true to my vegan lifestyle but not the whole food and plant food goals; peanuts, Bombay mix and wine do not count as healthy!  The humous and raw veggies were good.

It was a lovely sociable day though 🙂


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 :-)
