Day 32 – Cruise PP

Morning weigh in: 95.7kgs

Daily GAIN: 0.3kgs /0.66lbs
Total loss: 4.2kgs /9.24lbs

Watercheck: 1.9l – tea, coffee water and low-cal cordial


  • Mug of tea
  • flaxseed & oatbran bread with extra light philly and vegemite

Morning snack

  • 1 carrot cake muffin


  • Taco mince with Zero% Greek Yoghurt and a little salsa


  • Ham and cheese omelette (I’m totally addicted to these now)


  • 25 mins cycling to and from work (I’m getting tired pre-lady-times.)
  • 32 squats

Like I said, lady-times mean that all emotional reactions to weigh-ins are inadmissible. I used Moonday’s Philosophy again today to great effect – so many slices of brownie, caramel shortcake and rocky road left over from last night’s event, all sitting in the kitchen, all making come-to-bed eyes at me. I had to share Moonday’s Philosophy with my colleagues, and they all looked perplexed. It’s a bit of a twisted philosophy to get one’s head around, but it sure works!

Although, something happened this afternoon that made us all have a bit of a laugh in the office – at one point, there were stacks of cops milling around outside, and a police helicopter too. One of my workmates found out that a staff member at the bank across the road had been outside smoking a cigarette, and some guy had come up to her and said quietly, “something’s going to happen”. When we heard that in the office, there was a bit of nervous laughter, and someone said, “Oh Charlotte, maybe now you’re regretting not eating that traybake!”

I had to laugh. They didn’t mean it in a “you should have a tray bake” kind of way – if I actually make a move towards the sugary siren song in the kitchen, at least two of them would have rugby tackled me to the floor.  I love my workmates. 🙂

    Hi there Charlotte,

    Remember… The scale weighs Everything, not just fat 😉 So just KEEP on going!!!!!

    I have some good news… I haven’t weighed myself since I begun, but I measured my waist & hips. I’ve lost 4cm
    around my waist & 3cm off hips 🙂 I’ve only been on the program 15 days exact! I believe in using the same scale, so I’ll just have to stick it out till the 27th sept. I am starting to notice the difference in my clothes now!!! YAY!!!

    I made the pumpkin bread this evening with pumpkin soup. It was delicious!!!!!!!!
    Hubby enjoyed it too ;D

    Take care & stay FOCUSED!!!’


    • Oh wow, robs! What a fantastic result!! You must be absolutely chuffed! 🙂

      I’ll definitely need to check out the pumpkin bread. Have you tried the flaxseed & oatbran yet? It pretty amazing!


  3. Sounds like an exciting day… your work mates being supportive is awesome!

    I’m going to try the carrot cake muffins today… and while in Dubai pick up some FF cream cheese…. CAN’T WAIT!


  4. So I’m gonna share a totally random story with you, too, seeing that you talked about cops. Yesterday I was coming out of the supermarket with my daugher, and she was hiding behind me, saying she was scared. I asked her why. She pointed ahead and told me she was afraid of “them”.
    There were a whole bunch of cops. I was kind of perplexed, as her dad is a cop and she isn’t usually afraid of them, so I asked her why she was all of a sudden afraid of cops. And she said, “no, mom, not the police officers – I’m scared of THOSE TWO!!!” … those two being two nuns!!!
