Busy Work Days

I have been so busy at work this week it has been exhausting.  Harvey has been staying with our dear friends in Warwickshire so I know he is having an amazing time.  I miss him a lot but at least I can focus on work which I need to do this week.  Thank you Helen and BJ for being such good friends to us.

I ate really well today.  Last night I made a smoothie for supper and I made double so I had a portion to take to work for breakfast.  So this large beaker contains half a pineapple, 2 bananas, 1 small papaya and a handful of raspberries and blueberries from the garden.  It was delicious.  I had frozen it overnight so it was a bit like having ice cream for breakfast.  Yummy.

Plums always remind me of my Mother; we had a Victoria plum tree in the garden of one of our homes and she did love those plums.Plums 6 I also had 4 apples.Pink Lady 4 I was late leaving work so I grabbed supper from Itsu and ate it on the train home.Itsu 4 One ‘hip, humble and healthy’ which is vegan – yay 🙂  It is made with avocado, muki and green beans, rice, kombu relish, salad and a vegan herby dressing.itsu 3 I really enjoyed it.itsu 2 I also had ‘veggie club maki rolls’ which had rice, avocado, carrot, green beans and kombu.itsu 1

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 :-)
