Day 14 – Cruise PV

Morning weigh in: 97.5kg

Daily GAIN: 0.6kgs / 1.32lbs
Total loss: 2.3kgs / 5.06lbs

Watercheck: ย 1.9l – water, coffee, diet coke

Late breakfast

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

No lunch – a late breakfast followed by roller derby practice meant that it just never happened.


  • 6 gluten-free cumberland sausages
  • a whole tomato
  • 2 slices of onion
  • a little bit of naughty tomato ketchup


  • 60 mins cycling to and from roller derby practice
  • 90 mins roller derby practice

Yep, up on the scales this morning. I wasn’t happy about that. But I knew that I’d have a serious exercise day coming up, so that’ll help knock that one on the head.

Roller derby was tough today! I was sweating like a mother-ducker. Plus I cycled there and back again – I was knackered by the time I got home.

But the good news: every week for the past 7 weeks, when I’ve done the 25-in-5 (ie 25 laps in 5 minutes, which is a minimum requirement to be able to skate with the league) I’ve managed 17 & 1/2 laps. Every week. No matter how hard I try or how little I try, I always just get 17 & 1/2 laps.

But today, it was just a tiny group of us skating – just 6 people left from our original Fresh Meat group who didn’t make it through the last round of minimum testing – and we spent the entire session working on stance, stride and form. We then tried the 25-in-5 again at the end, putting all the things we’d practiced into play (long strides, derby stance – basically a squat 100% of the time, crossovers) and the first time, I managed 19 & 1/2 laps!! Then, the second time we tried it, I got TWENTY LAPS!! I’m so freaking excited. I feel like Derby might not be out of the realms of the possible after all.

So, just before I brushed my teeth to go to bed, I did a cheeky weigh-in. I’m exactly the same weight now as I was this morning – you know what that means for tomorrow’s weigh-in, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi Charlotte,
    So glad to have found your blog! My start weight was 97kgs, goal weight of 75kgs too! Am on day 4 of attack, not finding it too difficult, am loving not being hungry! But am sooo looking forward to adding veges to the mix.
    Where in the world are you? I am in NZ and finding it hard to find non-fat dairy, plenty of super low diary.
    I have had 2 bubs and really dont want to be a fat mum, so this is it!!!!!!! I am hoping being in my 20’s (26) is on my side, get this weight off before my metabolism slows down too much.
    Anyways, I will be lurking and reading, good luck with your journey! ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Hey Shannon!

    Hurray for starting – well done! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, given that you’re in your 20s, I bet things will go easier for you – I’m struggling for every pound lost this time around.

    I’m based in Edinburgh – all the “fat free” stuff here is, in reality, super low fat. If you can get anything below 1 or 2 percent, I think you’re fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Keep in touch, and enjoy the veggies when they come!

    Charlotte xx
