Day 13 – Cruise PP

Morning weigh in: 96.9kg

Daily LOSS: 0.6kgs / 1.32lbs
Total loss: 2.9kgs / 6.38lbs

Watercheck:  3.3l


  • Mug of coffee
  • 3 microwaved eggs
  • Oatbran porridge with cinnamon


  • 6 slices of ham
  • 8 mini chicken satay sticks

Afternoon snack

  • 3 mini kabana sticks
  • some delicious, very very non Dukan-approved cheese.


  • 350g grilled chicken thigh fillets


  • 40 mins hard cycling to and from today’s Roller Derby bout.
  • 35 mins brisk walking around the Meadows

So apart from the cheese, I had a very very good day.  Post dinner, I’m feeling incredibly full – so even though I had an almost perfect PP day, I have this weird feeling that I’m going to be up on the Scales of Woe tomorrow. Not to worry – it’s all going in the right direction in the long term. 🙂

The Roller Derby bout today was incredible – what a nail biting game! Right down to the wire, our team was 3 points behind, scored what looked like 3 points to tie the game in the last jam of the bout, but it turns out they only got 2 points and lost by ONE POINT!! But it was an incredibly well-played bout – hats off to all the players! 🙂 I freaking love this game (even if I can’t play it!)

I’d also like to point out that the traditional bake sale for the bout was so unbelievably tempting. I could smell the wafts of lovely, muffiny, brownie-ie cakey goodness drifting past me as I checked people’s tickets as they went through the door. I resisted, however, and chowed down instead on the ham and chicken in my bag, later on. Being a meat-eater at a roller derby bout is not an easy thing – there’s a much higher proportion of vegetarians and vegans there than in the Real World.  I had one girl who’s just gone vegan completely turn her nose up at me – she was quite rude! Fortunately rudeness is not a common trait in Derby, people are generally lovely.

Tomorrow I have my first session back on skates since the minimums test three weeks ago. We’re supposed to be having one-on-one sessions for all the people who didn’t pass minimums – there aren’t that many of us. I’ve heard mixed reports of what’s going to be happening tomorrow, but I’m hoping that they’re going to let me work on the stuff that I know I need to pay lots of attention to – the main thing being crossovers. I STILL can’t do them. Here’s hoping!

One response to this post.

  1. well done on todays loss, pretty good considering you had a few drinks the day before. I have not drank since I started this, really cant trust myself to go out and have diet coke and have a good time aswell.
    Roller derby sounds a great way to tone up and definately more fun that the gym. just wondering where the satay sticks are from? they sound yummy and would be a handy thing to have in. I live on the Isle of man and we pretty much only have tesco but i’m looking out for something similar.
    hope tomorrow goes well
    Aimee xx
