So today is the celebration of 6 weeks on Dukan. Wow! I can’t believe how fast time has gone by. Technically, I started the program on Monday, Aug 22nd, but I did my initial weigh in and did all my shopping for the first week on Saturday, Aug 20th, so when I count my days, I do it from there. Funny, instead of eating all my faves on that Saturday and Sunday, I actually ate better, and by Monday had lost a little bit 🙂
I hesitate writing this next bit, because I don’t want to be called a jammy git by my Brit friends. But I am proud of myself. Even though I’ve been traveling for most of this 6 week Dukan journey, I have NOT, to my knowledge, eaten a single thing NOT on the program. No bread, no rice, no potatoes, no pasta. It hasn’t been that difficult actually. No sweets, either. Tempted, somewhat, but I’ve got that big ass picture from my class reunion where it’s easily accessible (desktop of lap top, desktop in iPhone, it’s own file in my iPad photos) and if I even think of it… I yank that picture in front my eyes 😀 To remind you of that picture, here it is: https://flamidwyfe.wordpress.com/2011/08/19/i-can-dukan/ While rereading that initial blog I got such a happy feeling with the positive feedback I got from those that commented… I think it is SO important to have that encouragement. To empower one another and cheer each other on! Isn’t that what life SHOULD be about, supporting each other!
So here’s my day:
Walked 1 hour 8 minutes… yup… I’ve got a timer. Did it in 2 different segments, one in the early afternoon, one in the evening.
Breakfast: 2 boiled eggs, 1/2 liter water, coffee… funny note here. I’m making sure I get my water in by drinking it BEFORE I allow myself coffee or diet coke. I’ve actually found that for most meals, I don’t want the coffee or diet coke because the water has satiated my thirst and filled up my tummy… my consumption of such beverages has diminished considerably in the last 6 weeks!
Lunch: 4 slices of ham, pot of yogurt w/oat brand and splenda, 1/2 liter water
Snack (eaten while shopping for more food) 1 boiled egg. People look at you funny when you peel and eat a boiled egg from your backpack 😉 Sipping water while shopping.
Dinner: Sirloin strips with onion and garlic, sauteed with some herbs on top. I only ate half of this… just not as hungry as I used to be… this would be a good thing 😀
Snack: AND THE BEST PART OF THE DAY!!! I found FAT FREE cottage cheese at the market… WOO HOO!!! Had 1/2 a pot, savored it, swirled it around my mouth like a fine wine… it was YUMMY! Actually, divine… a divine little snack and a 1/2 liter of water.
I want to thank those of you that comment consistently and infrequently… it is a HUGE encouragement to me… keep it up… I go back and read them nearly every day!
