Cruise day 31 – PV

Morning weigh-in: 104.1 – HELL YEAH!

  • Daily lost 0.5kg/1.1lbs
  • Total lost 8.2kg/18.04lbs

Watercheck – 1.7l by 11.33pm


  • Oatbran porridge (again made with less oatbran, to compensate for the oatbran that’s in the chocolate muffins)
  • 2x microwaved eggs
  • cup of tea

Morning snack

  • 2 cups of green Oolong tea (I got addicted to this tea during my time in China)
  • 3 slices of pastrami
  • 1/2 fillet of leftover salmon from the other night (taken with an Alli cause it was a bit oily looking)


  • Leafy salad with tomato, skewered chicken pieces & Dukan balsamic viniagrette
  • Mini babybel light

Afternoon snack

  • 2x chocolate oatbran muffins


  • Egg foo yung, made with 3 eggs & 1.5 med tomatoes – have kinda overshot my egg limit for the day, but it’s not the end of the world
  • 1 Muller light vanilla

Well FINALLY! We’re past the 5-day lull and back to weight loss territory again.  Perhaps my technique of 25min cycle and 30min walk did the trick – I’m trying it again today.  My walking was so “brisk” yesterday that my shin below my previously injured knee started to ache, so I think I’ll take it a little easier today – the leg’s not fully healed yet. But perhaps today’s result on the scales was just part of my normal 5-day cycle (though there was no… no “ick” pre-weighing.)

*Ick alert*

I did manage a biiig ick today, so I’ll be interested to see how this translates on the scales tomorrow morning.  And with that in mind, has anyone else experienced difficulty “ick”ing despite having plenty of water, oatbran and a wee bit of wheatbran? (my wheatbran came from the chocolate muffins)

In other news, J and I are starting to train Link as of today.  Cats can be trained, you know… Except, he’s so enraptured with the little chicken/liver kitty treats we got him, that he’s actually getting a little violent in taking them, claws and all.  Ouch!

He’s very cute though, so I think we can forgive him.

    our cats just won’t look at kitty treats – I ended up giving them away Hopeless things!

    not the kittys


    • Maybe you’re using the wrong kitty treats, or perhaps you’re already feeding them stuff that’s too tasty. All Link gets is Iams and the VERY occasional pouch of wet food if we’re feeling generous. He goes crazy for the half-dried sticks of chicken liver…
