  • Weight Lost 0.3 kgs
  • Total Weight Lost 7.1 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – Dukan Galette

  • Snack – none

  • Drinks – 1 ltr water, 3 cups of tea, 1 cup of coffee

I was suffering from a carb-hangover yesterday (nothing to do with the drink!) and just ate leftovers from our Sunday Pre-Christmas Lunch.

I´m not drinking enough water these days – it´s a bit cold and has been raining a lot, and watching the news about all the snow everywhere is making me feel colder!  Would you all have a word with the weather gods and ask them to stop with the snow – even though we have no snow here I expect to see it when I walk out the door after watching the News.

I was hoping we could go and collect our new puppy this week but the rain has been really heavy and she lives up a really bad track which is nearly impossible to get up when it´s wet.  Maybe it will dry out be the weekend!

Cruise Phase Day 43

Damn you Christmas!!

I ate far too much yesterday and felt sick as a dog last night……and still feel a but queasy today. I put on 600 grams so that bit wasn’t too bad, but I went a bit mad on the food!

I had 3 servings (big ones) of Tiramisu, 6 chocolates, roast potatoes, half a bottle of Cava and nearly a full bottle of white wine. That was the bad stuff – I also has Turkey and veggies but I stayed away from the Pork Crackling.

We had a lovely day though and it’s nice to catch up with friends who we don’t see enough of.

So now I just have to get back on the wagon and try to stay on it!!

Cruise Phase Day 42

Oh No! There’s food everywhere!

We are having some friends over today for a Pre-Christmas Lunch and there is a Turkey and Roast Pork cooking in the oven. These will be served with spuds and veggies. I have already decided to have today off the diet and will just enjoy the good food and good company.

Cruise Phase Day 41

My weight this morning was 102.4 kgs which is 200 grams up on yesterday. I am posting this from my new iPad (a birthday and Christmas gift from my kids!) so I can’t include the usual chart of what I ate, but it is usually the same stuff. Although I did have pancakes yesterday made with eggs, skimmed milk powder, sweetener and cocoa powder. Very good when you have cravings.

Tomorrow will be my Christmas Dinner so I will be having a few naughties, and enjoying them without feeling guilty! Then it will be back to the diet again. I will also be getting my new puppy during the week so that will mean more exercise.

Cruise Phase Day 39

I am the same weight today – 102.2 – and ate much the same food as I have been eating so nothing exciting to report.  Although there is very little Christmas atmosphere here, we are having a Pre-Christmas Lunch on Sunday and that will be my Christmas Day off the diet.  I won´t be having Chocolate or other goodies, but I will be having Tiramisu for dessert!

It´s been a hectic week with my family visiting from Ireland but it was very enjoyable and I managed to stay on track with my diet.  Only Christmas to get over now and it sould be plain sailing to my target sometime in May or June……..I hope!

The only problem now is that my back is very sore after all the driving and I really don´t feel like doing any exercise.  I need a weeks holiday myself……lol.

Well, my family finally made it after a day and a half of travelling, they are all wrecked!!  It´s great to see the grandkids again – the baby is 3 months now and gave me a lovely big smile.

I had a great surprise when they gave me an iPad for my birthday!!!!  I have wanted one since they first came out – I´m just waiting for iTunes to update so I can start playing with it.

Another great weight loss today – that´s 6.3 kilos down in 5 weeks (almost a stone).  My goal is getting closer all the time and I am loving this diet.  I had two big temptations yesterday – Starbucks and the dessert menu in Grumbles where we had dinner – I still can´t believe I didn´t have the Apple and Rhubarb Crumble……..but I was strong and resisted!  I am so proud of myself.
