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 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 :-)
