Dukan – Day 176 – Jet Lag and Walking on Thin Ice

Saturday was a PP Day 2 of 4

Daily Weight Loss: 1.1 lb/0.50 kg
Total Weight Loss: 66.2 lb/30.11 kg

Happy to see the scale continuing to drop. I’ve been drinking more than 2 liters of water the past 2 days to help flush out the water I’m retaining from 21+ hours of flying.

I was up at the unGodly hour of 303 a.m., having crashed around 800 p.m. Friday night. This wouldn’t be so bad IF I didn’t have to work and think. It’s nice getting up 4.5 hours before you have to work, I got a lot done πŸ™‚

I had a pot of yogurt with bran and Splenda before I left for work and picked up tea eggs at the vendor downstairs. Before getting dressed in the morning I always check the temp outside to see how layered I’m going to have to dress. This was the forecast this morning…


Shouldn’t there be a rule that you update the weather when the low is actually 5 degrees lower than the forecast?!?

I then picked up my tea eggs and took this picture of the dreary morning…


I then promptly fell on my not so cushioned anymore ass! See the black shiny tile? What a great way to start my morning! πŸ˜€ At least is was a graceful fall and I didn’t hurt myself, nor was it witnessed by anyone… LOL

Work was work, bathing babies, seeing prenatal patients and assisting women with breastfeeding.

Lunch at the halal restaurant with some friends was sliced beef with cilantro and a couple of mushrooms and a tea egg.

Afternoon creating a power point, posters and policy for reducing the risk of falls (ironic given my fall this morning!) and at 3 pm I felt like I had hit a brick wall. Jet lag is no fun, seriously! I did some yoga and jumping jacks to infuse some energy and finished the day with a walk home in the cold rain.

Dinner was beef stir-fry with curry and cumin and garlic stems. I have no onions and miss them. I will order food online for delivery on Thursday and be stocked up, once again.

I busied myself with downloading iOS 5 update for my iPad and went for a walk to keep me up until at least 9. Bed at 915, left the update running πŸ™‚ Still working on getting my bearings again. Missing home a lot after this visit for some reason. Trying to reason savings plans for the future vs. being at home with family… I’ll be better when the sun comes out, inshallah πŸ™‚

  1. Sorry to hear your ass took a hit…lol Hope it’s not too bruised tomorrow. Hang in there, you’re rockin’ the weight loss girlie!

  2. No surprise with the water weight loss. Are you carb hungry.? Jet lag is pretty awful. Be good to you. Not only do you have the jet lag horrors but adjusting to the temperature change and work again is difficult. The older we get the harder it is.
    Again be good to you.

    • Not carb hungry at all… haven’t consumed carbs (except veggies) for so long that I am far past that πŸ™‚
      I’m having a hard time to adjusting to ALL of the above, LOL. Jet lag really, really sucks and to do it twice in 3 weeks is even suckier! Up before 5 a.m. again this morning, but at least it wasn’t 3! The cold is driving me nuts, but I always remember you saying that shivering burns calories, so I try to look at it positively and work is work. If it was more challenging, I think it would be easier.
      Being as good to me as I can possibly be πŸ˜€ Thanks for your wonderful encouragement and advise xoxo
