Living beside the sea has made me more aware of the beauty of the clouds.  I think it’s because you san see so much sky because your view is not obstructed by any buildings.   As I drove along the seafront this morning the cloudscape (is that a real word?) was stunning.  The sky was filled with a towering black could but it was fringed by a bright white cloud layer.  I had to pull over and take some photos as it was so beautiful.IMG_1086My iPhone has not managed to capture the contrast between dark and light accurately.  The lower layer was bright white rather than gold.IMG_1087The colours are more accurate in this photo.IMG_1088Very dramatic.IMG_1089I didn’t eat anything very exciting today.  Cherries and melon for breakfast.IMG_1094Heated up leftovers for lunch: I mixed the leftover pasta in a cavelo nero pesto with last night’s left over lentil and mixed bean curry.  They did not taste good mixed together but this bowlful kept me going for hours.IMG_1100HOW MANY CALORIES ARE IN A PIZZA ????  I am so shocked.  I knew they were bad but had no idea it would be that bad.  This pizza has hardly any cheese and obviously no meat.  But it has nearly 700 calories – it weighs 320 g.  That converts to between 30 -35 syns so more than 2 days worth.  I didn’t have any yesterday so I have evened out but even so, that is shocking.

This was not a patch on the amazing pizzas from our local pub but it was ok.  However, now I know how many calories/syns are in it, I am not having another one.  I will save pizza calories for the Imperial pizzas.

IMG_1115I ate it with some lettuce, tomatoes and sprouts.IMG_1114I didn’t do very well with exercise today but I did get some chores done so I am ok with that but I must eat better and exercise more tomorrow.






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 :-)
