Post Christmas Update

I was really determined to stick to the Dukan Diet over Christmas and I mostly did – apart from falling off the wagon on Friday and Saturday :(

According to the scales I have put on 1.2 kgs, which I suppose isn´t too bad considering what I ate.  I went totally mad and had chocolates, wine, bread, jam, stuffing, apple cake and more chocolates.  And that was just the bad things – I also had some not too bad things as well.

But I am back on track now and will be getting back to keeping my diary every day.

I have also been busy with my new puppy, Fudge.  She is adorable, but hard work.  We have to house train her so are following her around making sure she doesn´t get too many chances to poo or pee in the house.  So she is taken out every couple of hours for some exercise and “evacuation” as they so politely put it in the doggy training sites.

Cruise Phase Day 13

Day 13 of the Cruise Phase stats:

  • Weight Today 105.1 kgs
  • Weight Lost 0.0 kgs
  • Total Weight Lost 4.5 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – Dukan Galette
  • Snack – Half a Grapefruit (not Dukan Friendly but I grew it myself!)
  • Lunch – 4 Crab Sticks, Cooked Turkey Slices
  • Snack – 0% fat Yoghurt
  • Dinner – Tandoori Chicken, Coffee Creme & Meringue
  • Drinks – 2 ltrs water, 2 coups of tea, 1 cup of coffee
  • Exercise – No proper exercise but went shopping.

Well I stayed the same as yesterday so I am quite happy with that – but as you can see from my menu I didn´t have any veggies.  I just didn´t feel like having any so today is going to be my PV Day.  That´s what I like about the Dukan Diet, in one way you have to stick to the rules in order to lose weight, but those rules can be bent a little bit if necessary – as long as you don´t go totally off diet you will lose weight.

No exercise again!  I will have to make more of an effort next week.  I will be facing temptation today as my Sister arrives today for a weeks holiday and we will be meeting up later for coffee – will have to stock up on willpower before hitting La Cañada shopping center.  Although it´s much easier to diet here in Spain as there isn´t much choice in chocolate and the cakes look delicious but taste horrible!  This time of the year is worse as the shops stock up on chocolate and sweets for Christmas – the Spanish traditionally have Turron at Christmas and Suchard do a huge bar of Chocolate Turron with Rice Crispies in which I am madly trying to not see in the supermarket!
