Dukan – Day 145

Thursday was a PP day.

Daily weight loss: 0.4 lb/0.20 kg
Total weight loss: 61.8 lbs/28.11 kg

Rockin’ and rollin’! Nice walk in to work this morning. It’s warmed up into the 40’s although it’s a damp 40’s and still feels cold as ice to me! I’ve got my iPhone/iPad set up with a playlist that works well for my walk to work… Upbeat, brisk, etc. I find that I walk to the beat of the music and brisk is better! I have a Cuban jazz CD loaded up and it makes for some fun music in the mornin’!

Breakfast, at home (gasp!) before I left for work. Fat free yogurt with Splenda and bran. It was a nice change of pace, but I missed my after dinner yogurt treat!

Work this morning consisted of bathing babies…


And the afternoon, policy writing and flow charts to go with the policy…


Can I say how much I love MS Visio?!?!? The 2010 version is awesome and so easy to work with!

Then the fun walk home. I took the long route which is 1.4 miles instead of 1 mile. I love that route, it goes past the university and has less traffic. And I avoid the guy selling HOT SWEET POTATOES roasting on some cart thingy that smells so good! He’s there every day, rain or shine, hot or cold, selling those roasting sweet potatoes… I’ll shock him to death when I buy one once I’m on consolidation!

Dinner was pork loin chunks stir fried with onions, chopped garlic, garlic cloves, garlic stems, cumin, a pinch of cinnamon and 2 tsps of olive oil. Olive oil is the one thing I did not give up for this diet. To me it brings out the best in the food. I’ve always used it sparingly and still do. Using it has obviously not harmed my weight loss 🙂


It was a yummy dinner 🙂 nice cup of Yellow Label milk tea after dinner and then to bed early. I’ve been an exhausted this week for some reason. I’m sure it has to do with a couple of late nights and those early mornings! I hope everyone is having a great week! 4 more sleeps until I’m home for vacation… Woo HOO!

  1. Congratulations another loss 🙂 Your dinner sounds devine. I’m not sure I have ever seen garlic stems at my supermarket. Do they have a different name? when get bulbs of garlic, hmm…. will need to ask our produce people next time I am at the supermarket.

    4 more sleeps… hope you manage to get some sleep with the excitement of your trip looming!

  2. Trying to wrap up all email this am. Then off to hospital Arrival time 11Am. Going to miss having my morning coffee. Your dinner looks great. May try that myself. Love pork roast. See you soon. Won’t be on for several days. Have a safe trip. See you soon. Love mom

  3. You are an inspiration with both Dukan as well as in life! How many people get to travel the world and get paid to do the one thing that they truly love doing?!? Keep up all of the hard work, because you’re doing great!
