Cruise day 153 – PP

Morning weigh-in 89.4 – post Birthday-Pizza weight

  • Daily GAIN – 0.9kgs / 1.98lbs.
  • Total lost 22.8kg/ 50.16lbs

Watercheck – 1.5l inc water & diet coke


  • Oatbran porridge


  • Chicken from Sainsbury’s, and some naughty pastries.  Dammit!

Afternoon snack

  • Low fat chocolate pudding (Shapers Delish)


  • A few bits of Sainsbury’s roast chicken


  • 45 minutes walking around a massive retail park
  • 90 minutes on the cross trainer at the gym as penance for pastries

OK.  I know I said yesterday I was feeling super motivated, and I was.  But then this morning I had a bit of a weird experience – I got into work, my lunch all cooked and ready for my daily routine, to find everyone staring at me in surprise.  My boss cocked her head at me, and said “well hello! What are you doing here? Aren’t you supposed to be out in Straiton looking through storage boxes?”

It’s at that point that I realised that I was supposed to have been out at our archive storage facility, searching through for a particular object which may or may not have been put into storage.  Eeek!

So, my day was thrown severely off balance and routine.  I didn’t get the breakfast I should have done – fortunately my oatbran was still a little warm after having been cooked in bulk in the morning, so I begged a spoon from someone at the warehouse and gobbled it up.

But by the time lunchtime rolled around, I was hungry, cold and not a little cranky.  Hence the Naughty Pastries.

I tried to make up for it by spending 90 minutes this evening on the cross trainer, but after the pizza last night, I suspect that things won’t be rosy on the scales in the morning.  It’s just water, however. It’ll all sort itself out eventually… 😉

Still feeling motivated, now that I’m going back into my normal routine.

    Hi Charlotte
    I love your blog – you’re my Dukan hero!
    This is day 1 of Cruise for me so I’m waaaay behind you but am pretty happy to have lost half a stone already. Just the four more to go…
    So far I’ve been able to stick to the diet like bootcamp because I haven’t had to go out, but what’s great from reading your blog is that when social events come up or when life just gets in the way you can go off piste for a bit and still maintain an overall downward trajectory. I’m hoping this will stop me falling into my usual “Huh, its ruined. Ruined I say! Might as well have….”
    Anyway, well done on your fab weight loss so far & I’ll be looking forward to watching you get rid of that (well deserved) pizza!


    • Hi Sonia! Welcome aboard! You’re in for a helluva ride… 😉

      Half a stone during attack – that’s sensational! How much do you have to lose in total?

      You’re just fresh into Cruise, so don’t forget that it’s normal for your weight loss to slow or even stop for a bit (or in my case almost 2 weeks!) while your body catches up. It doesn’t happen to everyone, you might be one of the lucky ones, but if it does happen to you, don’t lose heart! Just keep going, keep following the diet, and make sure you get your exercise per day – it’s not optional, it’s compulsory. Even if you just do 30 mins walking, that’s enough to keep things going – for me that’s just a walk to the shops and back, at top speeds.

      Good luck, and keep in touch!! 🙂

      Charlotte xx
