Baby It’s Cold Outside

Gosh it’s cold outside today!  It feels really freezing cold here in my little corner of England.  Not ultra cold by global standards perhaps but I am really struggling to stay warm tonight.  I will be heading to my cosy bed when I have posted this as it may be the only way I can warm up.

Breakfast was a bowl of citrus goodness.citrus bowl 2 2 pink grapefruit and 2 oranges, which packs in a lot of vitamins which are needed at this time of year to help boost immunity.citrus bowl 1 At lunch time I spent some of my Christmas money on some new clothes (a sweater and a long sleeved top for work) and then popped in to Pure for a takeout.  I have not had this before and it was very tasty.Smoked tofu pho bowl I was feeling hungry so I had a bread stick with it as it is very light.Pure Pho 2 Pretty good and it felt really healthy and nutritious.Pure Pho 1 For supper I made a smoothie with some kale from the garden, 4 bananas and some frozen raspberries, with a glug of almond milk.smoothie 19-1-16 Topped with some coconut.  It was good but not enough as I was still hungry.smoothie and coconut So I had some dates with almonds, cashews and walnuts.  Not many and served in a small bowl, rather than bringing out the whole bag, so I don’t overeat as they are high in fat and I really want to be losing weight.dates and nuts by candle

I am really pleased how I did today with my eating but I haven’t managed to walk my steps – 8,200 so far.  I will try and do a walk tomorrow lunch time to get the exercise increased.

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 :-)
