Cruise day 85 – PV

Morning weigh-in: 94.3kgs

  • Daily GAIN 0.4kg/ 0.88lbs
  • Total lost 18kg/39.6lbs

Watercheck – 2.4l


  • oatbran porridge
  • 2x microwaved eggs
  • Cup of coffee

Morning snack

  • 2x moist vanilla muffins


  • 2x roast chicken breast
  • 1 vine ripened tomato

Afternoon snack

  • packet of smoky bacon potato crisps (seriously? yes. I blame it on the Snotmonster)
  • 1/4 apple, brought in fresh from the tree by our building manager at work as a gift for us – it would have been churlish to decline his kindness! 🙂 and they were delicious! And my body said “eat them, you need them”.


  • stirfried chicken with pak choi and brocolli (yum!)


  • 25 mins cycling to and from work
  • 40 mins walking to supermarket & back, where I bought:

Evening disaster

  • a chocolate bar and scoffed it on my way home.  It made me feel better, dammit! (while making me feel a little guilty too, but whatever)

Meh, up .4kgs.  We knew this would happen, me being the big ball of snot that I am just now.

Seriously.  You know it’s bad when you have to wipe snot off your hands when you blow your nose… (sorry, was that taking it a bit further than I should have on the whole sharing thing? 😉 )

I attempted to have a day right on diet, but what with the afternoon snack rampage, and the evening disaster, I don’t think I can claim the title of Model Dukanneer today.  Not to worry, all will be well eventually. I totally blame the snotmonster – I’m not sleeping well, and I’m not going to berate myself over a slight backslide.  If it continues tomorrow, then you’ll hear some self-flagellation.

In other news, it looks like poor J is coming down with this horrid affliction too…

    Hope you feel better soon.
    Don’t beat yourself up about the present weight gain. It’s just a hiccup in your otherwise excellent record. Once you defeat the snot monster, you’ll feel less vulnerable to forbidden snacks.
    I started my diet mid April and have lost only 10 kg (I am cheating on the cruise phase) and I’m really pleased!
    I am just 1 kg away from my original target which was realistic but still leaves me overweight so I have decided to set a new target – to lose another 5 kg. Bet you will lose 10 kg in less time than I will kick just 5!
