A typical day in food.

For Lauren (and anyone else who might be interested in what I've been eating) here is what I eat on a typical week day:

Breakfast: Activia fruit fat free yogurt
Snack: mini babybel light
Lunch: 4 thick shavings of meat (usually turkey or beef)
Snack: Activia fat free vanilla yogurt
Dinner: Turkey meatballs in a creamy sauce made with fat free cream cheese and stock (pp) or chicken wrapped in prosciutto with carrot and swede mash and red cabbage (pv) followed by a chocolate and cherry galette (using activia low fat cherry yogurt and low fat cocoa - yum!)

Drinks: heaps of tea and coffee, plus 1L water and 1/2 cans of Diet Coke
Exercise: 1.5 hrs of walking per day

At the weekend I usually have my galette for breakfast and something different for lunch like a salad if I'm PV or a selection of cured meats and fresh roast chicken if I'm PP. I sometimes cheat a bit at the weekends too with a glass or wine or some chocolate or a tiny bit of dessert if we have a dinner party, but I try to compensate for this by doing more exercise, today I went for a half hour run.

I've just started training for a 5K run to raise money for cancer research in June, so I shall be stepping up the exercise as soon as the weather gets a bit better! xx

Hello world!

I'm back! Firstly apologies for my very long absence from this blog, my husband and I were both every ill with flu for weeks over Christmas and then I suppose I just got out of the habit of blogging.

I haven't fallen off the wagon though, luckily I have been much more successful with the diet than I have been with the blog! So here are my current stats:

Total weight loss so far: 52lbs or 23.6kg
Current weight: 160.5lbs or 72.9kg
Target weight: 136lbs or 61.8kg

The Dukan diet has well and truly changed my life, I feel and look like a different person. Before Dukan I thought that I would just have to accept that I would be overweight and miserable about it for the rest of my life, a very scary prospect. Now I'm going on holiday to Florida at the beginning of April and I'm actually looking forward to shopping for a bikini and some cute little shorts. Bring on consolidation! xx
