Day 89 – Cruise (PV)


What a great day…I went to Bikram yoga for the second time and I am absolutely in love with it! This time, I managed to join in for a lot more than last time, however I still felt light headed at moments and had to stop. A lady there said it could take 5 or 6 sessions to get used to the heat….and I have low blood pressure, so that won’t help with the light headedness. In the heat you can push your body so much farther than you could otherwise. The instructor was really great too (a different one from last time).

This is one of may favourite poses…and yes I can do it! (just not yet perfectly and in a tank top!)


Here’s what I ate today…

Breakfast: 4 strawberries (In preparation for the yoga)…sooo delicious! (Must try and forget that memory until the next time I do Yoga)

Snack: 5 slices of Ham with 1 Tomato

Lunch: 2 Eggs and 3 slices of lean Bacon

Snack: Jarrah Chocolatte made with ice and water, Oat Bran added in after blending…EPIC FAIL! I used too much water and it just tasted horrible, and all the oat bran kept floating to the bottom so I was gonna be left with a huge glob of watery oat bran. So I put it in the microwave to to make ‘Chocolate Porridge’! Aside from the fact that it bubbled over and I lost some of it, I would say that it was a success!

Dinner: Dinner Party at my friends house…Dukan Pumpkin Soup for Entree, Roast Chicken & Beef & Roasted Vegetables for Main and Strawberry Dukan Cheesecake for Dessert!!!

Drinks: Sooo much water (I lost track) and some Coke Zero at dinner

Exercise: 90 minutes of Bikram Yoga

So how did I go today?

More Water….Check!
Less Coke Zero….Check!
Oat Bran….Check!
No TF’s….Little Check 😛 The cheesecake had Extra Light Philly Cream Cheese which is still a touch high in fats…and I had a big serve of Cheesecake 😛

Day 88 – Cruise (PP)


Yay…82.1 on the scales this morning 🙂 I chose to have another PP day today as I’m going to my friends’ house for dinner tomorrow night and I wanted to keep my options open for that. (I know she is making a big Dukan Cheesecake for dessert! Aren’t supportive friends just the best! xoxo You know who you are 😉 )

A visit to Costco with my friend yielded some very nice protein-y foods for the fridge (I almost ran out of eggs!)

Here’s what I ate today…

Breakfast: 1 Egg and 4 small slices Bacon (I wanted to use up what was left)

Lunch: Pork Hot Dog (no bun!) with diced onion, gherkin and a little mustard..I’m guessing it was American mustard.

Snack: PROTEIN! Turkey Chips (crisps just sounds to weird for me 😛 ) 1 Double D Sugar Free Lolly (liquorice flavour)

Dinner: OMG YUM! Mustardy Chicken Kebabs (pg. 54 of the Dukan Cookbook!) I didn’t have time to marinate them, and they were sooo awesome! You make a creamy (yet with no cream) garlicky, lemony, mustardy sauce to go over the top!

Drinks: 2L Water & less Coke Zero than yesterday

Exercise: 😦

So, in relation to yesterday’s ideas on kicking things along, I drank more water and less coke, I had protein instead of dairy as snacks and I had no tolerated foods (TF’s). However I didn’t get any Oat Bran or exercise….some things to aim for tomorrow.

Have you tried any recipes from the new cookbook? Let me know how they turned out….

A little something for you…


Once again, I would like to say thank you so much to all of the people who regularly come by to support me on my blog, and also to the people who say a random hi here and there.

I have tried to lose weight many times in the past, and I have to attribute my success this time, a) to the Dukan Diet itself, and b) to the fantastic friends I’ve made on this blog.

Unfortunately I can’t send a thank you present to everyone….But one lucky friend will receive a cute package in the mail! If you would like a chance for it to be you, please leave a comment on this post.

Comments will close in one week’s time, 6th October at 5pm AEST….and I will let you know who is the winner using a random number generator.

Good Luck to you all xoxo

Day 86 – Cruise (PV)


Whoops! It’s been a few days without posting…I had an extremely busy weekend!

This morning I weighed 82.8kg, I went up 0.3 kg after a disastrous day for dieting yesterday. Unfortunately after eating pizza on Friday night, it became easier and easier to say ‘yes’ to carbs over the weekend. I tried extra hard to get right back on track today, and already I feel better for doing it.

I had a grazing day today, this is what I ate…

1/2 Subway Salad with Skinless Chicken and Steak pieces

‘YOPLAIT’ ForMe Banana and Honey Yoghurt & 1 Double D Sugar Free Lolly (I have been saying Nestle this whole time and I have been wrong! Sorry!)

2 small slices Smoked Trout with 4 tbsp Gherkin Cottage Cheese

Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sundae

Other 1/2 Subway Salad with Skinless Chicken and Steak pieces & Babybel Light

1.4L Water & 2 cans Coke Zero

Hopefully the scales have nice things to say tomorrow morning 😛
