So, I feel like a total fraud today.  A half kg loss on the scales, but I totally didn’t deserve it, not with that icecream yesterday.  I didn’t mention it was an icecream sundae, did I? No, I didn’t, cause I was even too ashamed to admit it to you, dear reader. But I’ll come clean now – it was an icecream sundae.  Evil, creamy and packed full of sugar.

I stepped on the scales ready to accept my penance with a gain today, but to my surprise – a HALF KILO LOSS!

I was – obviously – happy, but at the same time, a bit sheepish.

Not to worry, I’m certainly not going to interpret this to mean that I can have an icecream sundae every day and still maintain a healthy loss. No – what this means is that, as everyone keeps assuring each other over at the Dukan Diet Forum, this is actually quite a forgiving diet, so long as transgressions are few and far between.

I know that this is going to be a tough week, food wise.  I’m in a first aid training course all week (yawn) and am away from my normal routines.  We eat at a pub around the corner from the training venue, and there’s very little Dukan-friendly food on the menu.  I had a quiet word with the manager after our meal today, and he said he’d be happy to let me go off menu with a grilled chicken breast and a poached egg for lunch each day, so that will make things a little easier at least.
