Sunny London

I have found it so hard these past 2 mornings to go in to London.  I want to stay in my garden !

This is my view from the kitchen window and it was too good to leave alone.  I had to get outside.garden 14-4-15 I feel such a sense of peace and happiness amongst my vegetable garden.  I really must sow more seeds and Saturday will be spent doing just that.veg garden 04 2015 I prepared a huge bowl full of watermelon and, with reluctance, set off for London.

I sit next to a window and in the morning I have to have the blind down because the sun shines in my eyes so at lunch time I was very keen to get outside and to feel the sun on my skin.yellow building St Giles In the fieldsUnsurprisingly all the seats had people sitting on them, enjoying the warmest day of the year so far.

So was this.lunch 15-4-15 2 Pasta and broccoli left over from supper the previous evening, with tomatoes, cucumber, endive and red pepper.lunch 15-4-15 1 Ever since the weekend I have been really bad with snacking and today I vowed to get back on track.  I did fail but this was the only snack I had today which is a huge improvement on yesterday when I snacked on 2 chocolate bars !!!!proper corn Supper was very easy; banana ice-cream with mango and almonds.  A sweet ending to a good day.banana ice-cream with almonds

I did snack again in the evening but only 1 heaped tbsp coconut yogurt with some walnuts.  At least I was vegan today and mainly wholefood and plant based.  A definite step back in to the right direction.

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 :-)
