I have been very busy in the last 2 days as I was working full-time in the City and doing the changeover of my old house. While I try and sell it I am letting it out through Airbnb and I had to fit in the changeover last night. I am also trying to fit in lots of walking and eating healthily so I can lose weight. Difficult when I am so busy but I am determined.
Monday morning and I had a large rooibos tea with no milk and 3 apples for breakfast. We have a Waitrose round the corner from the office which is very handy.Next to Waitrose is a restaurant called Passione which has a fantastic buffet. You buy either a medium (£4.70) or large (£5.20) tub and then help yourself to their extensive buffet. There is a selection of hot and cold dishes and lots of lentil, bean and vegetable dishes. I love a decent buffet. I wasn’t very hungry on Monday so I had the medium and filled it mainly with raw and pickled veggies.In the evening, while my washing machine and tumble dryer ran non stop for about 5 hours, I heated up some of the leftover broccoli pesto quinoa and added some butternut and chard casserole to serve with it. I was joined by Sarah who popped over to lend me her iron and phone charger and we had a lovely catch up over glasses of tap water – that is definitely a first!I also snacked on a few almonds.This morning I caught the train to London Bridge station which has improved massively over the past couple of years. I could have gone to Cannon Street but I got off a stop early to lengthen the walk.The section between the station and London Bridge remains as grim as ever though!I was at London Bridge at 7:30, just in time for sunrise which was very pretty. I have been working in the West End for the past couple of years and although I wish I still was, I do enjoy some aspects of being back in the City and walking over London Bridge is one of them.There is absolutely no filter or editing on this photo. I timed my walk perfectly and as I neared the North side of the bridge, I was able to see the sun sitting in the middle of Tower Bridge. It was actually a very deep orange, even though in the photo it looks white. Certainly an awesome start to the day.I felt really hungry today and after my black Rooibos and 3 apples, I had another Rooibos, this time with some soya milk to keep me going until lunch time.I went back to Passione for lunch today. This is one of 2 sets of the cold buffet bowls so there is plenty of choice. There are meat options but most dishes are vegan and not smothered in dressings – hallelujah.I was hungry so I had a large pot today.So much yumminess and good nutrition in one pot.After work I drove home to Hastings and it was great to be home. I had a few almonds and a smoothie for supper, made wth 3 small ripe bananas, half a punnet of blackberries, some oat milk and a teaspoon of sea greens powder.I am really pleased with how I have eaten because it’s predominantly plants and lots of it is raw, which is my objective. I have also walked at least 10,000 steps a day too so another objective achieved.
