Cruise day 77 – PV

Morning weigh-in: 95.5kgs

  • Daily LOSS 0.2kg/0.44lbs
  • Total lost 16.8kg/36.96lbs

Watercheck – 2.5l


  • oatbran porridge (I should have reduced oatbran content to take into account oatbran in muffins, but I still had one tub of porridge left over from the last batch… oops.)
  • 2x microwaved eggs
  • Mug of tea
  • Moist vanilla muffin x1

Morning snack

  • Moist vanilla muffin x1


  • 350g chicken strips with Simon’s fajita seasoning, marinated overnight – not bad! I’d never have thought about using cinnamon! But I ended up using half as much cayenne pepper (which in itself was too much) and twice as much lime juice, and smoked salt too – I like my salt.

Afternoon snack

  • 150g strawberry low-fat yoghurt
  • chocolate biscuit – oh noes!


  • Beef stirfry
  • Moist vanilla muffin x3 (eek – I think having muffins in the cupboard available to snack on is a bad idea.  I always do better when there aren’t any available.  They’re all gone now, and I’m not making more.  I have not the self control.  Shame on you, fellow bloggers – you know who you are – for leading me astray with such tasty treats!)


  • 25 mins on the bike to and from work
  • 50 mins walk around the Meadows

I had a bit of difficulty hitting my stride today on my walk.  It kinda felt like my feet weren’t hitting the ground properly, and I was definitely not walking with as long a step as usual – by the time I was just 15 minutes into my walk, I was already 45 seconds behind where I usually am.

Today was a bad day for the diet.  I had too many oatbran muffins.  I had a chocolate biscuit.  I didn’t reduce my oatbran porridge mix to compensate for the muffins and now I’ve probably had twice as much oatbran as I ought to have done.  Tomorrow is going to be a very pure protein day.  No tolerated foods.  Meat and eggs only (plus the oatbran, of course.)  After dinner, I’m feeling really bloated and gross, especially after cleaning out the muffin supply in the cupboard.  I’m not feeling guilty, just annoyed at myself – not the same thing.

Also – the chocolate biscuit made me feel TOTALLY queasy today.  Blargh.

I am steeling myself for a jump in weight tomorrow morning on the scales, and not just because it was a PV day today. *sigh*

However, one must again take the long view on this.  In the last two weeks I have lost 2.4kg (5.28lbs).  A colleague who’s been away following surgery saw me for the first time in 3 weeks, and the first thing he said was how healthy I was looking.  You gotta hold onto things like that. 😉

  1. I think i have the same problem with the muffins! I’m going to finish what i already have baked from last night and not do any for a while! I also dont’ have the self control. I do much better when these things aren’t around 🙂 … i love your beef stri fry recipe! Will try and make it soon! 🙂


    • We’re so bad… 😉


      • Heehee – sorry about the muffins 😛 I just use the muffins as my Oat Bran allowance when I make them, so I have no dramas. You’re doing so great with your weight loss Charlotte! Keep it up!

      • Yeah, that was the plan – to use it as my oatbran allowance. But I love my morning porridge – it sets me up for the day, and the muffins feel too much like snacks to have them for brekkie… 😉

        Oh, and get you – going great guns yourself! Nice going!

    I forgot I exceeded my oatbran quota because I forgot I already to had 2 muffins!! I even thought someone at home ate them!! I love the muffins, they stop me from eating Skinny Cows!


  3. OMG I am SO glad that none of my local supermarkets stock Skinny Cow, or they might be a problem for me… Sugarfree Polo mints all the way today to curb the traitorous brain.
