Cruise day 123 – PP

Morning weigh-in 90.4kgs

  • Daily change 0.0kgs/ 0.0lbs
  • Total lost 21kg/ 46.2lbs

Watercheck – 1.7l


  • Oatbran porridge
  • 2x lean beef sausages
  • mug of coffee


  • Chicken fajita nuggets with a tiny bit of hoisin sauce stolen from J’s plate on a couple of peices

Afternoon snack

  • low fat natural yoghurt with sweetener

Tapas dinner with:

  • Thai salmon fishcakes
  • lean beef sausages
  • chicken fajita pieces
  • 3 gin and tonics


  • 70 min walk around the Meadows

OK. Ok so I know. It was a model day apart from one small thing.  Or should I say, 3 small things. The gin.  I have to explain that.  I blame it on Louis Walsh and the X Factor. See, the only way we can get our snide enjoyment from the X Factor (as opposed to our genuine enjoyment of some of the acts – OMG did you HEAR Mary sing?!) is by making fun of Judges’ comments.  We’ve got a whole drinking game worked out, but we’ve been playing a limited version of it. Basically every time a judge comes out with another trite, inane comment like “you’re the next big thing” or “I really really liked it”, we have to have a drink.  If we played the full version – the one where we drink for EVERY inane comment, we’d be rolling around drunk on the floor before half time.  As it was, we had a drink every time someone said something like “you made it your own” or “you’ve gotta make it your own”.

Three glasses later, and here we are.

Oh well.  I can do better next time.  I’m going to do a couple more days of (non-boozy, non-tolerateds) PP to get me kick started back into the diet again, but be warned – tomorrow I’m doing a weights training session with a friend, so the scales are going to go haywire again on Monday, depending on how hard we go.  I’m sure it’ll all work out in the end…

    It is the exact same with Strictly at the moment; there are two camps, thems thats rubbish and thems thats not. It is so obvious who the dead wood are, and it takes a good few weeks before you can say we have a competition going on. We just have to put up with the weeks of pruning before we get to the good part. Ann Widdicome and Wagner? Come ON! The only reason the deadwood acts are there are to give maximum exposure to the reasonable ones — we get to see them for more weeks as a result. Genius.

    It is weird how these things just happen. I have been having these sneaky moments although exactly who I am deceiving I am not sure – where I creep to my freezer and have a frozen Lindt ball. Like I say, not sure who I am deceiving except myself!
    I was laughing reading your post. I can well imagine how if you drank every time you heard a trite comment you would be sloshed before the first ad break!!
    he he
    Have a good day.
