Wow.  I’m in teh 94s! Yay! Well, it certainly seems like if you do transgress, like Ruth says, you’re back to calorie counting for the day.  I counted up my calories last night, and given the calories in and calories out, I ended up on about 1000, give or take 100cal.  But no more counting calories unless there’s a MAJOR transgression like yesterday.

A good day today.  When we moved into our new premises last January, my boss instigated a regular at-work tradition of “Fun Friday”.  She uses the term “Fun Friday” ironically, in an effort to chivvy us along to do jobs that noone really wants to do, like reorganising the library journals, or filing, or cleaning out a cupboard.  But in order to butter us up for Fun Friday (she really is a lovely boss, we’ll miss her when she leaves for maternity leave) she usually brings in tasty M&S treats – bite sized chocolate rolls, and bite-sized flapjacks – the ones that come in little tubs, Brits will know em.  I love those tasty M&S treats, but I’ve not partaken in them since I started the Dukan diet.  Today, feeling bad that I always missed out on the treats, my boss brought a special treat in for me – sugar-free M&S butterscotches.  OK, in this case sugar-free doesn’t equal carb-free, but Dukan specifically says that you can have up to 8 sugar-free sweets per day – and in total (counting a teensy tiny Smint) I had 7.  OMG those butterscotches were good.  And they’re the kind of thing that lasts forever in the mouth, so it’s a double whammy.  I really don’t like chewing gum, so I think I’ve found my new treat.  We’ll see how they react to my scales though. 😉

My daily walk today was a joy – if we didn’t live in a digital age, I’d have thought that my iPod was running low on batteries – it felt like the music was slower than usual, which means that walking was EASIER than usual.  Hurray! I love days like this where everything goes right.  There are no muffins in the cupboard to tempt me, and only a tasty dinner waiting for me as soon as I publish this.
