Today’s post comes with a big frowney face. On my last post day 5 attack phase I was nervous about the weekend and how my usual activities would fit with doing Attack phase dukan diet.
The positive side is that I stuck to Dukan all weekend AND I still did my compulsory exercise, the only slight hick-up when I took a mouthful of my friends vodka and diet coke as the bartender had switched our drinks. Don’t worry I gave it straight back and swapped it for a plain diet coke. So why the frowney face? :
So the all important numbers after 7 full days:
Weight: 13st 11lbs
That’s right, the exact same as it was on Friday!!
I know I know, I can all hear you saying it:
” You can’t lose every day”
“It could be water retention”
“You could be putting on muscle from the exercise”
And so on, but lets face it during the Attack Phase which is all about numbers, you would like it if they go down. Now for the silly part, I know that you don’t lose weight for trying, but I was so good over the weekend especially when I had opportunities not to, that I feel the dieting karma should have given me at least 1/2 lb.
Moving on…… Today is the first day that I start Cruise phase. Now as I am following Dukan Diet online, it would have been nice if they would have sent through’s today’s menu yesterday or even a big flashing banner that you are moving onto Cruise tomorrow. After 7 days I have just got my head around the Attack rules, so spent a good hour this morning re-reading the Cruise rules to make sure that I am prepared.
Reading through the vegetable list and I have never been so excited at the thought of asparagus, mushrooms and courgettes to name just a few. Lunch today was a poached egg with asparagus (too hungry to take picture before eating so I had to find one).
If you are reading and nodding at any of this post, please do leave me a message, be nice to know that I am not completely diet mad already.
