Dukan 2.0 – Attack Day 3

Standard

I had a little scare this morning on the scales….they were the same! A bit of fiddling and adjusting later and they actually read 91.5 🙂 So that’s a loss of 700g since yesterday…1.5kg in total after 2 days of attack 😀 I think for my attack phase I would like to at least get under 90kg (which should hopefully be achievable).

Some exciting news for me…which I didn’t get a chance to write about last night was… I have started back teaching in Australia as a CRT (Casual Relief Teacher) and had my first day yesterday and second today. Yesterday I had a grade 3/4 class all day and today I taught !PE! to grade 1 and grade 2 students. Both days have been so much fun but I am utterly exhausted. Also, I have a very SORE throat either from being sick or using my voice so much…not really sure yet. Do you have any Dukan friendly remedies that can help me with this?? please ^.^?? I am supposed to be covering the teachers for when they are sick, not getting sick myself!

I haven’t been as hungry today, which is awesome…I guess coz I’ve been so busy >.< I’m wondering if I should have a bigger breakfast as I normally eat my porridge at 7am and I am HUNGRY at some point between 9 and 10…or is this normal for you too? It’s just impossible to eat when I’m working as recess isn’t till 11am, or at the school I was at today, it wasn’t till 11:30!

Breakfast: Oat bran porridge with skim milk and 1/2 tsp sweetener

Lunch: ForMe yoghurt, Diet Jelly, 50g Ham & 50g Pastrami

Snack: Diced Chicken Breast

Snack: ForMe Yoghurt

Snack: Cup of tea with a Baked Oat Bran Cookie…..ZOMG winning! I was so content after this ^_^ (ooops I went 1 tbsp of Oatbran over for the day…hope that’s not so bad but I really need the fibre)

Dinner: Most likely will be Stuffed Chicken Breast, Chicken Tenderloin cooked with Dijon Mustard

Drinks: Nearly 2L water and 1 can Diet Coke

Exercise: I was a PE teacher today…so there 😉

I’m going to do some cooking tonight…like every night for the past week >.<…and I saw this recipe for Baked Oat Bran Cookies from Vicki at Dukan Blogging. I can’t wait to give them a try 😀 (I might just sneak one but it will take me a touch over my Oat Bran allowance for today…still Dukan though 😀 )
I will also be making mini quiches (my silicone  muffin tray only makes 6 at a time) and more Moroccan Spiced Turkey Burgers (It’s been a while since I’ve done a decent recipe with photos for you but I promise I will make it soon 🙂 )

I watched some interesting videos about the Dukan Diet here that Little Miss Contrary linked to. She has lots of links to info about the Dukan Diet, you should check them out ^_^

I apologize for the super mega long post today (but I guess it makes up for yesterday 😉 )

Day 142 – Cruise (PP)

Standard

A very interesting morning on the scales, after a number of different times, I weighed 73.1!!! I am more confused than excited ^.^?? My scales are normally very reliable, so I don’t know what’s going on. I don’t even know if it’s physically possible to drop 3kg in one day?

When I got home from work I weighed myself again, and after a day of eating and drinking lots I was up to 74 (a regular jump for me at the end of the day)…and still 2kg less than I weighed yesterday morning. I don’t know what’s going on and I’m very curious as to what I weigh tomorrow morning.

Breakfast: Oat Bran Porridge

Snack: Diet Jelly & Yoplait ForMe Fruit Yoghurt

Lunch: Beef Jerky (whoops, I ate the whole thing!), Pastrami and Chicken Breast

Snack: Silverside

Dinner: Roast Chicken (lots 😦 it was an easy dinner)

Drinks: LOTS of water (more than 3L I would imagine) and quite a bit of Coke Zero too.

Exercise: 30 minute walk on Mum’s treadmill 🙂 (maybe it’s the regular exercise that I’ve been doing??)

Day 139 – Cruise (PV)

Standard

Woohoo! 76.6kg today, three losses three days in a row 😀 I wonder how long I can keep this up?

I allowed myself to get hungry today, but on reflection it was probably more that I didn’t drink enough water during the day….so I had to make up for it in the evening.

Here’s what I ate today…

Breakfast: Skinny Weak Caramel Cappuccino from Gloria Jeans

Snack: Nestle Apricot Yoghurt

Lunch: Small Roasted Chicken Breast

Snack: 1 sugar free Lolly and Diet Jelly

Dinner: Savoury Mince

Snack: 2 Chocolate Oatbran Muffins & 1 sugar free Lolly

Drinks: 2L Water & a couple of glasses of Coke Zero

Exercise: 30 minutes on my Mum’s treadmill and about an hour of walking around a fete 🙂

SW: 99    CW: 76.6 😀

BMI

Standard

I am 165 cm tall and currently (at 76.6kg) my BMI is 28 – Overweight 😦

Even when I get to my goal (of 71kg) my BMI will be 26 – Still Overweight 😦

I would have to weigh 69 to be at the very top of the ‘Healthy’ Weight range. I don’t know if I hold too much stock in this BMI business….Because I already am starting to feel pretty damn healthy 😛

What are your opinions??

138 – Cruise (PP)

Standard

Yay 77.2kg today (another 0.5kg lost overnight). The lowest I have been since starting Dukan was 76.9…hope I get back there really soon 🙂

Feeling really skinny today 🙂 My skinny jeans are no longer called that because they stick to my legs….but because I’m getting too skinny for them! (that is the size 14 pair if you were wondering!)

We are going to see Harry Potter 7 Part 1 tonight! Awesome! I love Hermione…I used to call her Her-Me-Own until I read book 4 and she had to correct Viktor Krum when he pronounced her name wrong! (like me!) funny 🙂

And to my brother Mark: I will not be 30 by the time the last HP comes out (I will be 27 in fact), and you are still coming with me 🙂

Here’s what I ate today…

Breakfast: Yoplait ForMe Fruit Yoghurt

Snack: 2 Chocolate Oatbran Muffins and 1 Sugar Free Lolly

Lunch: Left over Beef and Chicken Sausages…yum!

Snack: Sugar Free Jelly

Dinner: Bacon and Eggs

Snack: Sugar Free Lollies Roast Chicken Breast

Drinks: 2L Water and Coke Zero/Pepsi Max
