Dukan Diet Redo – Day 6 – PV

Another day in Shanghai. Went out on foot today while the sun was shining. Found a park nearby with an elevated walkway and a running path marked off in 25m increments. Pretty awesome!



Feeling like this today…


And this was my walk…


Breakfast: 2 fried eggs
Lunch: pork stir fry
Dinner: amazing burger (no bun) at Blue Frog with some veggies
Snack: FF Greek yogurt

And I finished reading Dan Brown’s Inferno. Lots to think about at the end of that book!

How was your week?

Dukan – PV Dinner

Quickie update… Down 3 pounds below True Weight. Dukan web site asked me to be an ambassador! And I’m exercising every single day and eating great!

To it was a Dukan PV dinner night. Chicken, onion and asparagus… YUM!


Monday I walked a total of 7 miles, plus I did a yoga class that was 75 minutes AND did lower body work on the equipment… Feeling strong and the size 8’s are feeling looser!

My two walks:



Working a lot this week, teaching a workshop this weekend to midwives taking their state board exam and getting in a healthy walk daily. LIFE.IS.GOOD.



Dukan Consolidation – Day 40
Daily Weight: 148
Goal Weight: 155




4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 pound shrimp
4 garlic cloves
Large bunch cilantro
2 Tbs GF Soy Sauce or Asian fish sauce (GF = Gluten Free)
**Use Coconut Aminos to make this Whole30 compliant**
1.5 Tbs toasted sesame oil OR 1.5 Tbs Olive oil and 2 Tbs roasted sesame seeds (I couldn’t find sesame oil, so made my own!)

Place all the ingredients, except the chicken and shrimp, in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth (took about 40 seconds in a blender using the pulse button).

Place chicken breasts in oven proof baking dish and pour the marinade over the chicken. Place in fridge for 15 minutes.

Prepare your grill or preheat your oven to 375 degrees. When done, the internal temp should be 165F.

I baked in oven as follows:
Cooked for 40 minutes.
Pulled out and spooned the juices on top
Back in oven and added the asparagus dish to the oven

Asparagus, 1 tsp of organic sweet, salted butter, 2 crushed garlic cloves

After an additional 15 minutes, pull out the asparagus, add the shrimp to the chicken dish, drizzle a teeny bit of olive oil on shrimp and put oven on BROIL for 8 more minutes.



Bernadette and Kevin loved it. Going to miss going back to china and being restricted to a burner and pan again.

I fly back to China tomorrow. I’ve had a wonderful time in Florida and North Carolina. 3 more months and I’ll be home for good!

Also, took mom to the train yesterday for her trip back to Newberry. Here’s some pics from our trip…

Love letter from my grandson Shane to my mom, his GiGi… He’s the sweetest boy!
