Walking and Remembering

Train troubles again today; a long delay and then a diversion so I was late for work for the second time this week.  Today however I did divert via Timberyard as I really wanted a decent coffee.  Timberyard – you never disappoint.Tyard coffee I had made a smoothie at home with just frozen berries and 2 bananas and it was perfect by the time I got to the office.  Yum.smoothie 6-1-15 I went for a walk at lunchtime along Tottenham Court Road.  This is a place for you, Stella and Rob!Black Sheep coffee I walked over to Maple Street as I used to live there in my first year of University.  I couldn’t find the flats but I did find the Hall of Residence over the road.  Still going strong, many years later.Carr Saunders My sister Abi and I worked in here, another long time ago.Heal & Son Chipotle for lunch.chipotle signThe usual veggie bowl.
lunch 6-1-16 Brown rice, beans, roasted veggies, guacamole, salsa, chill, sweetcorn and lettuce, with Tabasco sauce.chipotle veg bowl I was late home tonight and hungry when I got there.  I ate the crust of the loaf with peanut butter while I waited for my soup to warm up.pure, pb and toast I only had a tiny bowl (200ml) of lentil soup so I had 2 slices of toast and peanut butter,toast and dal followed by some leftover smoothie with Coconut yogurt swirled through and pecans.smoothie and co yo

So I ate too much this evening which I put down to being home late and feeling very tired.  I have walked 12,145 steps today so some of that hunger was justified but some was bad habit.  I need to make sure I have larger portions of the healthy part of the meal, which in this case was the lentil soup.  I must bulk cook at weekends so I am better prepared during the week.

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 :-)
