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 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 :-)
