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 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 :-)
