Good day yesterday –  meeting up with my sister who is here on holiday and doing some shopping in La Cañada – huge but pricey shopping center in Marbella.  I wanted to get some Fat Free Quark as I had heard it was good to make cheesecake out of.  When I spotted Blueberry Quark and Vanilla Quark (both 0.2% Fat) I got so excited I forgot to check the carbs – and didn´t check them until I had eaten a few spoons of the blueberry one – OMG!!  It was so good, but so bad…….lol.

So today I am feeling a bit bloated as I didn´t eat very well yesterday and am paying for it today.  But I have to admit I used the Blueberry Quark to make my Dukan Galette this morning and it was delicious!

Did some housework until my back could take no more so that was enough exercise for me!

I´ve been looking for more recipes and have found a few to try out.  Will post any here that turn out OK.  I want to try some muffin recipes so I can have something different for breakfast.  I find that everytime I look for recipes I spend more time looking for sweet things than I do on proper food…….

No weight loss today BUT I measured myself last week then again yesterday and I have lost 2 cm from my waist and have lost on all my other measurements as well!  My trousers are starting to get loose (they were like sausage skins!) and I feel great.  If it wasn´t for my back problems I would be skipping about the place……I´m hoping the doctor can sort out my last problem next month.

I am going to try to get in 2 sessions on the Cross Trainer today.  I feel I´m missing out when I don´t do any exercise.

Cruise Phase Day 8

Day 8 of the Cruise Phase stats:

  • Total Weight Lost 3.5 kgs

  • Drinks – 1 ltr water, 3 cups of tea, 1 cup of coffee
  • Exercise – None

Grrrrr…..went up 100grams even though I didn´t eat much this weekend, but that seem to be what the problem is.  I have been reading round some forums and have found that the people who are eating more are losing more weight – amazing but true!  So from today I will be eating a full breakfast instead of just having the porridge.  Also I didn´t have any yoghurt over the weekend and didn´t drink as much water as I usually do.

On the plus side, we had friends drop by yesterday and I made a non-Dukan friendly desert for them – and I didn´t touch any of it!  I am amazed by my willpower these days.

But my overall loss for the week was 600 grams so I can´t complain as the scales are going in the right direction.  Today is a PV day as I haven´t had any veggies since Wednesday, apart from the cherry tomatoes on Saturday.

So I´m going to re-read my book, look for some recipes and do more exercise this week.
